Scenario Sunday: Hot Deal on Water At Randalls/Safeway

I would have totally missed out on this deal if it weren’t for Fannie’s post on her blog.

Here’s the scoop: The Aquapod waters are 2/$4 and they are a part of the Buy 10, save $5 Mix and Match promotion (more details can be found here). There is also a catalina promotion to go along with this deal.

Here’s how it works:
Buy 10 waters at $2/each

Save an instant $5 (from the Mix & Match promotion)
Save $2 (if you have the 10% discount on your card)
Save $1 (if you have the $1/2 coupon from the 2/8 RP insert)

Spend $12 OOP, get FIVE $2 off your next purchase catalinas back (these do work like manufacturer’s coupons so if you are using them, you will have to have enough items to match up).

*You can “roll” these and do the deal over and over again…

Here’s my plan: (I’ll get $55+ worth of groceries for $22.50)

Transaction #1: Follow the “water” deal above

Transaction #2: do the “Chill out at Home” promotion
Buy 2 Safeway brand southern style hashbrown potatoes – $1.99/each
Buy 2 Eggo waffles – $1.77/each
Buy 1 Dreyer’s ice cream – $4.49/each
Buy 4 Tai Pei entrees – 2/$5 (use 2 $1/2 manufacturer’s coupons)
Buy 1 Tony’s pizza – $1.99
Buy 1 Hawaii’s Own juice – $1

Total before coupons = $25 – use 5 $2 off Ozarka catalinas, use 2 $1/2 Tai Pei coupons, $2.50 off for 10% discount

Spend $10.50 OOP, get a $10 OYNO catalina

Transaction #3: Buy other groceries I need (fruit, vegetables, milk, etc.) and use the $10 OYNO catalina

**Yes, I have done back to back transactions before when I am doing similar deals. My suggestion if you are going to do this is that you go at an “off” time (either really early in the morning or late at night). Also, if other people do come into the line, please be courteous and allow them to do their transaction before you complete your next one.
