2011 Total Savings
Best of Savings
-Our local Target is transitioning to add more of a grocery selection and sent a $10 off $75 purchase coupon! I combined quite a few gifts and other things we needed for around the house to make it to a $75 total...and got the $10 off! Love it. (*Also, see my tip below on this.)
-This weekend at Kohl's, they were giving $10 Kohl's cash when you spend $50...after shopping for purchases I needed to make for Mother's Day, birthdays, etc...I got in on this great deal! Plus, even better...the cashier was super excited about me being pregnant (and how she couldn't believe I was in my 16th week and looked the way I did...ha!) so she gave me the 15% discount only Kohl's credit card customers were supposed to get. (And this is even after I gave her my little "schpeel" about how I "don't do credit cards".) Gotta love customer service! (*Also, see my tip below about this.)
-I scored two free bottles of Nivea body wash with Wal-Mart's awesome $3 price and my two $3/1 coupons...I was out of body wash too...perfect timing!
A Little Savings Tidbit
So my tip...those crazy high totals you have to get to sometimes at a store before getting the cash back or the savings off your entire purchase...
I shopped with my grandma and mom...both of which are way too sweet to me and let me get the benefits of both of these deals. At Target, I was very close to the $75 total...but not quite...so my mom and I combined our purchases and she just gave me cash to cover her items. With that, we got the $10 off...and she insisted I get the benefits. Gotta love moms.
At Kohl's, my grandma and I didn't have $50 each total, so we combined our purchases, again, she gave me cash toward hers, and then she was kind enough to let me keep the $10 Kohl's cash.
Moral of the story...combine your purchases with a friend or family member to get the total you need for the special discount. For example, at Target, you could both take $5 off your total...not the entire $10, but it's better than nothing!
