Scored big on my matchups today!!

Had a chance to run to town to do a couple of big matchups I came up with last night.
I could hardly sleep.  (I know - crazy huh?). Sure wish I could hit the jackpot more often on big matches more often.

It's a little like searching for gold in an old gold mine, chipping away little by little.
Definitely saving quite a bit in all,  but when you hit the spot with that nugget, Yiiipppeeee!!  Lol.

Ok enough excitement for now.

I had 6 coupons for $1.00 off 2 lb (lg) box of Velvetta.
I also had 6 coupons for $1.00 off 2 jars of Planters peanuts.

So here's what I found:

Edward's Food Giant @ Little Rock has online ad for Velvetta 2 lb loaf for $4.98
Knight's Super Foods in Beebe has online ad for Planter's dry roasted peanuts for $2 for $2.00

Here's the details:

Velvetta -$5.98 match down to $4.98 minus $1.00 coupon = 3.98 per box (and each box had a bonus of 4                          
                                                                                                                        added to each = 32 xtra oz.)
Planters peanuts $3.50 -match down to 2/$2 ($1.00ea) minus $1.00 off 2 = $ .50 each jar

Velvetta:          Peanuts:
$5.98.               $3.50
X.   6.               X.  12
--------             ---------
$35.88.           $42.00

My totals

Velvetta.   +    Peanuts
$23.98.             $6.00.    

Total regular prices would have been $77.88

With my matchup and coupons I paid $29.88

A total savings of $48.00.

Wooo hooo!

Now can you see why I could barly sleep last night!  Lol!!

Oops forgot to include the battery deal I found.
It's matched from Walgreen till tomorrow night - Saturday 11.17.

Energizer Max C or D - 8pk for $7.99
                        (Walmart price $11.97)

Times like these make the little chipping away here and there
finally pay off with that "nugget of a deal".

Can't wait to get back at it again!!

Now to figure out how to really keep all these peanuts away from
Larry and Haylee is evening of a challenge.  Lol!!

Happy matchin' peeps!!!


  1. That is great!!! Wish we could do that with expensive Christmas presents!

    1. me too! :) If you can find it on sale and wm has it - you can match it. Toys are always on sale somewhere which might help a bit.
