My $5.35 Safeway Shopping Trip (90% Savings!) by Julia 41 Comments There are several great deals at Safeway today! All in all for everything pictured above and listed below I paid $8.35 plus I have a $3 catalina to use on my next shopping trip, so that makes it $5.35! I just stick that back in my grocery envelope and pretend it’s cash! One receipt says 90% saved the other says 93% saved – not bad! I also met a new TFF reader (hi Tammy!) in line today, she was so excited to see my savings at the register, couponing never gets old. Saving is so much fun! Crazy thing is one pound of organic ground beef typically runs $5-$7 and I got everything today for same price! Buy (10) Oscar Meyer Hotdogs – $1.99Now here’s where it gets interesting. The ad shows a $1/1 Just For u offer, so I assumed it would only take $1 off of one package but it looks like it took $1 off of EACH package! I was busy chatting and I had already handed my coupons over to the cashier at the beginning of the transaction – no beeps at all, then I see my total – $2.90! Then of course as planned I got back my $10 Kraft catalain as well making it a $7.10 money maker! I’m going to attempt to figure out the math on this according to how it worked for me today at Safeway… Buy (10) Oscar Meyer Hotdogs – $1.99 Get a $10 Kraft Catalina wyb 10 Kraft Products – $10 Just For U Savings Used (4) $1/2 Oscar Mayer Hotdog Coupons (no longer available) Safeway Doubl’r ($2 savings) Final Price: $3.90 plus a $10 catalina (I can’t figure out how mine came to $2.90…) On my next transaction I used the $10 catalina to pay minimizing my out of pocket cost.
