SAVE-A-DIME: WHAT CAN YOU GET WITH 64 CENTS?
So I check out and the total is $2.00. I hand the clerk my $1.50 off coupon. She tells me I owe them 50 cents. The receipt is printing and out comes $1.98 in RR's . A money making deal! Out of pocket 50 cents.
I made $1.48 on that deal.
3 cans into the cart, that comes to $1.77. I need a filler item so I can pay for the soup with the $1.98 RR's.
Oh look, a table marked 75% off , I spot a package of envelopes for 25 cents. Now, I am ready to check out. Total before tax is $2.02. I hand her my $1.98 RR, the clerk proclaims that I owe them 14 cents.
Out of pocket 64 cents: for 2 8ct Excedrin Migraine, 3 cans of Campbell's Tomato Soup and 1 pack of envelopes.
I just love it when I save some dimes.
