Shopping trip post submitted by Johanna:
I wanted to share some freebies I was able to pick up this week at Kroger and Walmart. I was hoping for some more freebies to add to this list, but not everything works out the way you plan, even when you plan well. But all-in-all, I am still very pleased of my results. 🙂
Colgate Toothpaste – $0.99 Used free digital coupon from Kroger – no longer available
Clear Shampoo for Men’s $5.99 – Used free digital coupon from Kroger – no longer available
Enfagrow Toddler Milk (4 pack) $5.99 – Used $7.00 coupon from mail (received $1.01 overage)
Huggies Wipes $1.99 – Used $0.50 from coupons.com
Total was $0.48 for products + tax.
2 Reach Floss $0.97 each – Used 2 $1/1 coupons from coupons.com
Cascade Complete Dishwasher Detergent (64 Pack) $12.97 – Used free coupon mailed to me
Total was $0.00 for products, I only had to pay tax.
One of the tips I have learned from couponing and any manufacturer satisfaction through the years is that if you do not like a product, give the manufacturer a call. I was happily surprised after I called Cascade and let them know that the ‘Basic’ dishwasher detergent did not work well, they made my dishes look worse than before.
She asked me some questions and then let me know she would mail a coupon to me within the week. I was happy enough, then even happier when the coupon came and there was no cash limit written out. The coupon stated 1 free product of Cascade Detergent.
So, my tip to any savvy couponer: call and let the manufacturer know if there is a problem with the product, you never know if they will give you your money back or even better a free coupon. So, I was able to get the biggest bang for my freebie buck!! -Johanna
