Quality Markets finally has a deal I can use....

I live in a really small town, and our local grocery store has a monopoly. The next nearest grocery is about 40 minutes away. It is really easy to end up paying $50 for a half a cart of stuff. They have never been a great place for deals. Really I sort of go there if there is no other choice. Well, since I have been complaining about their prices for years I figured I should give credit where credit is due. They have been doing much better lately, at least with their sale prices. This past week they had a deal so good even I had to give it a shot. There were coupons in the flyer that made it possible to double 4 manufacturers coupons up to $3.00 each. It required a $25.00 purchase before coupons and was limited to 4 doubles per "wild card". That is their version of a customer loyalty card. That's right, if you had 4 coupons worth 3 bucks each you could save $24 dollars! I did not have 4 $3.00 off coupons, but I think I made out okay anyhow. Here is how it worked:

2 bags Diamond walnuts on sale for $2.99 each
used $3.00 off 2 coupon doubled= both FREE
2 pot pies $1.00 each on sale
2 kids cuisine meals on sale $2.00 each
3 Lean Cuisine meals on sale 3 for $6.00
used $2.00 off 3 coupon doubled= 66 cents each
1 chocolate milk on sale $1.00
1 cookies and cream milk on sale $1.05
1 gallon milk $2.09
1 butter on sale w/ store coupon 99 cents
3 mashed potato pouches on sale 3 for $3.00
1 sugar on sale w/ store coupon $1.39
2 Mt. Dew 2 liters on sale 88 cents each
1 Pepsi 2 liter on sale 88 cents
1 flour on sale w/ store coupon 99 cents
1 Starbucks ground coffee on sale $7.99
used $1.50 off coupon doubled= $4.99
1 24 pk. Marcal toilette paper on sale $4.99
used $2 off coupon doubled= 99 cents
according to my receipt my savings were as follows:
manufacturer coupons: $8.50
wild card and store coupons {including double} $32.78
total savings: $41.28
Total paid: $25.55
that's $66.83 worth of groceries for $25.55 I can live with that...
Go Quality! Keep it up!
