He wants something easy for gamers to make and eat. So I'm going with these yummy little cheese and pepperoni baked thingys.
For which I'll need a better name.
Meanwhile, the score I recently made was just dumb luck. I hadn't planned on the purchase. But with an organized coupon binder and a store drop down, I snagged 'em.
Check it out.
$0.99 -- Cost of item with in-store price drop.
$1.00 -- Value of manufacture coupon.
$2.00 -- Big K doubled the value (restrictions apply).
Note: Use of the $1 coupon required a purchase of 2 Tums.
$1.98 -- Total before coupon.
$1.98 -- *Subtract value of coupon.
$0.00 -- Final cost.
*It's noteworthy to add that BigK (K-Mart), does not pay overage. Overage is when the coupon is worth more than the item, and the overage goes either in my pocket or is applied to the rest of my order.
However, BigK's computer should automatically adjust the price of the coupon to match the item or items. In this case, $1.98 - still making my item FREE.
I used 3 coupons in the same transaction. 6 Tums, total.
Here's the other thing, the manager didn't know what doubles up to a dollar meant. So it's important to know the store's coupon policies. She told me double up to a dollar meant they only doubled coupons worth 75 cents.
Very nicely (it's important to be nice but firm), I explained that double up to a dollar means, just that. For every $1 manufacture coupon, it will be doubled to $2.
Where she got 75 cents, I'm not sure.
Also note, the register didn't ring my Tums in at the drop down price. They had just dropped the price and the computers weren't caught up.
So again, nicely (but firm), I told her she needed to do a price adjustment for said items. No problem.
And lastly, the mascara I purchased was a buy one get one free, and again, the computer didn't scan the correct price. It took her three times to ring the correct total. Of which I saved 75% off my purchase and scored $30 in free Tums.
And that's how I did it.
