Learn How to Brag!
As a first brag, I feel like this isn’t too shabby – 75%+ off on beer and produce. Those two things are NEVER this cheap!
Total + tax before discounts and coupons= 124.96
Total + tax after all discounts, coupons, and rebates = 31.02
How we did it:
Thanks to KCL, we knew that Shopmium had $5 rebates per 6-pack of Shock Top up to 5. My roommate and I share all groceries and she’s a bit of a beer connoisseur, so stocking up is always a good idea when there’s decent cheap beer involve. After looking at the stores I frequent, I found that HyVee had the best price on 6-pack Shock Top ($8.49 at most stores, though I don’t know what regular price is at HyVee).
Our shopping list originally contained ONLY 10 6-packs of Shock Top. We didn’t have a discount at Ibotta, but it was still going to be $6.97 minus $5 (Shopmium rebate) per pack and $1.97 (net) for a 6-pack is next to unheard of. Since we both have the Shopmium app, we could both redeem 5 rebates.
Upon arrival, however, HyVee also had tear sheet coupons for $2 off any produce purchase exceeding $2 with any 6-pack purchase of Shock Top – but they were limited to one per transaction.
By splitting the produce into $2ish chunks wherever possible, we saved $20 through 10 transactions.
Here’s the breakdown:
10 6-packs Shock Top on sale $6.97 = 69.70
1 bunch red leaf lettuce on sale $2
1 bag red potatoes $6.22 – $0.50 automatic saving = $5.72
6 bananas $0.99
1 orange pepper on sale (misrung up – didn’t catch it until I got home, but should have been $2) $1

Having issues posting pictures for some reason, but here it goes…. I got 3 Luxury Spa 3 piece Robe Sets, 1 pair Of Memory Foam Slippers, 8 Fleece throw blankets 50×60, 1 Ajax dishwasher, 1 Colgate Optic White, 2 Loreal shampoos, 2 Loreal Conditioners. OOP 1.25! With a 5.00 ECB to boot
So I saw here on KCL that Target has Cesar Dog food on sale for $0.33 and because we have three dogs and are on a tight (graduate student + Active duty military) budget I though this would be a great first couponing experience. So, I went to our local Target, in Gurnee, IL, and I was told that they do not have those on sale. I was so sad and disappointed, but manager Matt recognized that and offered me that discount if I buy less then 10 packets. I bought 6 and came home excited and happy.. To be honest, made my husband sneak out from his work (Navy is pain when talking on the phone while training these recruits in the boot camp) and bragged about my 1st couponing success.
