Trip one (this was a better savings than trip 2, but I didn't have as good of coupons for my second trip):
bought 2 cereals at 2.39/box (sale price) and 2 toaster pastries at 1.79/box (sale price), and used 4 $1 off coupons = $4.36 spent ... but I got a $5 gift card so I really made 0.64 for gettting 2 boxes of cereal and 2 boxes of toaster pastries.
This was worth it for me because I needed to get my little girl some Huggies swim diapers at Target before my $3 off 1 pkg. coupon expired. Using my coupon, gift card, and getting 2 V8 splashes (and using coupons on them) and a box of envelopes which we just plain needed, I spent overall $10.94 for everything, including the Fiber One stuff. Considering that the swim diapers would have cost me $11.64 (that includes the tax) I actually spent less on all of this stuff than just buying the swim diapers!
I did the fiber one deal again and got 3 cereals and 1 muffin mix (each on sale for $2.39), but only had 2 $0.75 coupons and 1 $1 coupon, so I spent $7.06 on the 4 items, getting a $5 gift card (so really only spending $2.06).
I did this because we really needed some brita filter replacements for our water pitcher. There is a $5 off manufacturers coupon in the Albertsons ad this week for the Brita pitchers or filters, but Target's price is cheaper than Albertsons for this. It was priced at $16.69 (includes tax), but I used my $5 coupon and $5 gift card earned, bringing the total down to $6.69.
Combining the 2 transactions I only spent $13.75 -- $3 less than it would have cost me to purchase the brita filters by themselves. Awesome.
