Large Shopping Trip Coupons
Lately, several grocery stores have been offering special coupons if you spend $50 at their store. The store that offers the largest value coupon has been my determining factor. Giant circulars have had a save $.30 per gallon coupon if you spend $50 in your shopping trip. That is equivalent to $7.50 off of gas. Ummm, yes, I’ll take a coupon for $7.50! If I’m doing other Giant gas deals, its pretty easy to get to $50.
The other week I received a coupon mailer from Weis featuring their Ephrata Grand Re-Opening. On alternating weeks you can save $8 off your $50 purchase. That’s amazing! And really, it’s not that hard to spend $50 on things I need for a family of 5. And since $8 covers my basic necessities of milk, bread, and eggs, it’s like getting those for FREE.
Store Coupons combined with Manufacturer Coupons
In the Weis coupon mailer that I received, it also had coupons for FREE products every week if I spend $25. This week I received FREE Tropicana Orange Juice, FREE EGO Waffles and $3 off any produce purchase. If you have manufacturer coupons for any of these items, you can use those too, making this a money-maker.
For produce, I often do multiple shopping trips. Specifically because I like using the FREE bananas coupon that Garden of Eden has in the Shopping News almost every week. We love our bananas!
Other Determining Factors
Last week I spent $50 at the Ephrata Weis and received a $6.00 off your next purchase coupon. I had no idea why. They explained to me that for a short time they are generously rewarding customers because of their celebration. Another day I spent about $20 and I got a $3.00 off your next purchase coupon. So this week, I definitely knew I had to do my large shopping trip there. Today, my total was $32 and I got a $5.00 off my next shopping trip! Woohoo!!
