I'm really liking this weeks deals at Martin's - Here is one of my trip plans for this morning

(1) Gal Milk - $3.29 (Will be Free after the B6 deal on Hamburger Helper & Sunddenly Salad)

(4) - Hamburger Helpers X $1.67 = $6.68
IP $0.80 off FOUR Hamburger Helper Skillet Dishes = -$.80
Savings-Star Offer: Save 75¢ when you buy THREE (3) BOXES any flavor Hamburger Helper®, Tuna Helper®, or Chicken Helper® Home Cooked Skillet Dishes. .Expires 7/31/2013.Save $0.75. (I will get $.75 deposit into my Savings-Star account)
OOP = $5.88

(2) Suddenly Salad X $1.67 = $3.34
$.50/2 6-3 SS - will dbl to -$1.00 - OOP = $2.34

(10) Bull's Eye BBQ X $1.67 (reported as included in the $5/Meat/Seafood Deal) = $16.70
Use 5 $1/2 tearpads = - $5.00 - So OOP = 11.70
Get $10.00 Off Meat/Seafood - from the Kraft Deal

(2) Bags of Fish or Shrimp (not sure yet what I will get - can decide that at the fish counter) - a little over $6 per bag = $12.50
This is where I plan to use the $10 off credit from the Kraft Deal
Use the $2/10 Seafood Store cpn found in the Grilling Booklet found in the stores
so my OOP for the fish should be around $.50 !

(1) Mt Olive Pickles - sale priced $1.52
use $.50/1 - will dbl to - $1 - so $.52 OOP

(6) Nabisco Premium Rounds X $2.49 = $14.94
Use (6) $1/1 (SS 07/14)
OOP = $8.94 - Earn $12 in gas

I will make sure to put these items up last after I have asked the cashier to subtotal - so that the Kraft ISO has come off and the meat discount does not attach itself to the Hot dogs.
(1) OM Hot dogs - $.99
Using in ad cpn - when you spend $25

(1) 18 cnt Giant Grade A Eggs - $1.77
Using in ad cpn - when you spend $25

So my total OOP = should be $32.64
I will earn $12 in Gas
and Get $.75 deposited into my Savings-Star Account for a net effect of $19.89 for all the above, in
summary

(1) gallon of milk
(4) hamburger Helper
(2) suddenly Salad
(1) OM hot dogs
(1) 18 Lrg Eggs
(10) Bulls Eye
(6) Nabisco Rounds
(1) Mt Olive Pickles
1-2 Lbs of Seafood

I'm disappointed with my run yesterday. I forgot some coupons, spent too much oop, etc. But a couple of notes:

The GM cereals were the bigger boxes, too much $$ for me, and the coupons I had were for cereals they carried in a smaller size.

The Right Guard Sport deo that's on sale for $1.50 with the $3/3 IP - the coupon beeped saying "exceeds value of the item". A manager had to override.

Too many "Cheez" cracker varieties, and I got confused. I bought Cheez Its and it's Cheez Nips...or something, so don't get fuzzy or you'll end up at Customer Service figuring out why you don't have the correct gas points

That Spend $50, Earn 30 cents in gas coupon doesn't work before coupons

Living and learning...

Scrimpy, Sorry but the Spend $50 cpns have not been working after cpns for sometime now.

I would suggest if you did spend $50, even if it was in a cpl of transactions - take our receipts to CS and see if they will add the points for you...it's worth a shot.

Thank you. I didn't know that. I knew that some of the stated "must be after coupons" things work before coupons, but this didn't. And I did ask at Customer Service while I was trying to figure out the Cheez cracker situation, and the lady said I could come back and buy what I needed and she'd add the .30 for me. So, hopefully that will encourage someone else to do the same if they dig themselves into a hole like I did. It just really ruins my day when a transaction goes wrong.

I totally understand...and agree.

As a rule of thumb with Martin's the ISO deals work after cpns....even though the ad says they wont.

However the Gas Rewards cpns don't work unless you meet the spending requirement. This has been a sore spot for me for awhile because the store is actually getting paid more than the $50 from us who use cpns...ie if I was a cash customer and spent $50 and got my gas points without cpns that is all the store would get. BUT when we go in I must still spend $50 OOP ~ AND the store gets the value of the cpns back, plus the $.08 cents etc for each one.

So lets say I do a transaction that has a before cpn value of $80, I use $28 in cpns to get my OOP down to $52 - so that I can the spend $50 get XX cpn. The store will get my $52 in cash and $28 back from the Cpns I used and lets say each cpn pays the $.08 for them processing it (28 X $.08 = and additional $2.24) - so they would make $82.24 from me VS the Non Cpner....who spent $50

Seems like a good deal for the store.

Sorry it didnt go as you planned. Those coupons are coded to ring up 'discount at total' which is why those and the extra gas rewards ones just don't work after coupons.
