Moneymaker $57.50 MM trip with NO coupons! PIC INCLUDED!

Today was SUCH a success! I couldn't be happier! I took huge advantage of this weeks gas deals!!

This is from Giant in Northern VA

I got:
[27] cans of assorted Giant Brand canned tomato's ($0.75/e) (part of buy 8 get 300pts)
[10] boxes of Giant brand assorted waffles ($1.67/e) (part of buy 5 get 300pts)
[2] Activa Yogurts ($2/e) (part of buy 8 get 300 pts)
[2] Dannon Light and Fit Yogurts ($2/e) (part of buy 8 get 300pts)
[1] Dannons dino coolision yogurt ($2/e) (part of buy 8 get 300pts)
[40] bars/bags of Mars assorted candies ($1.25/e) (part of buy 5 get 300pts)

My OOP was $100 (Got 100pts)
Earned 4,200 bonus points in fuel points

Gas at our shell is $3.30
I have $4.50 off...max per 35 gals is $2.20
I will get $2.20 off 2 times so $4.40 off 70 Gallons
so $3.30 - $2.20 x 70/gals = $77 OOP for 70 GALLONS OF GAS!
(with out gas points it would be $231 for 70 gallons)

PLUS the extra 100 ($0.10) for another 35 gals = $3.5

SOOOOO
$231 (original cost of gas @$3.30) [-] $100 OOP @ Giant [-] $77 OOP on 70 gals w/ 2x's $2.20/gal [+] $3.5 on 35/gal w/ extra $0.10/gal = $57.50 MONEY MAKER!

so in super simple terms, Its like I got ALL THAT FOOD for FREE and they handed me a $57.50 gas gift card!!!!!!!!!!!!!


PHEW! Not bad for 45 mins at the store with NO COUPONS I think I spent more time doing the math to figure out how much I saved, than I actually spent at the store hahah!!!

I don't wanna be the wet blanket but I think your math is a bit off... Lets start with what you spent and go from there..

So you spent $100 on the food.

You earned 2.20 off of 70 gallons.. so that is $154
and another $.10 off of 35 so that is $3.50

Total 157.50 - 100 = 57.50 means you "only" got the food for free and a gas card for 57.50 some how you doubled the $3.50.

Still freaking awesome, just wanted to correct a minor error. WTG !!!

ohhh your right. I did double the 100 to 200 lol. I'm used to getting deals in increments of 200, so my mind was still in the .20/gal lol. Thanks for catching that!!

Thanks Actually, its just Giant, not Giant Eagle. I thought they were the same too, I'm from Ohio and that's where I think most Giant Eagles are. But Giant & Giant Eagle are diff and although they both have fuel programs, the gas point deals and store brands are different.
