Whenever I find gift card deals I like- my mission is always to come the least out of pocket in cash that I can. So most of the time I am doing separate transactions with only 1 gift card deal at a time. Then I use the gift card I get back to roll into the next transaction. This week I am doing 3 gift card deals- but all in separate transactions. I am waiting til Thursday so I can get the Publix Price Match on the Glade candles.
Buy 5 Glade Candles = $12.50
-$2.50 (Publix Price Match)
-$3.00 (use 2 $1.50/2 Glade 4 oz jar candles from 12-6-09 SS)
= $7 and get back a $5 Gift Card
Buy 5 Keebler Flip Sides= $10.00
-$2 (use 2 $1/2 FlipSides PRINT)
-$5 (use GC from transaction #1)
= $3 & get back a $5 Gift Card
Buy 2 Gillette Fusion Razors – $15.88
-$8 ( use 2 $4/1 Gillette Fusion Razor, any 11-29-09 P&G)
-$5 (use GC from transaction #2)
= $2.88 & get back a $5 GC
I will only pay $12.88 oop for 5 candles, 5 boxes of crackers and 2 razors. Plus I will leave with a $5 GC and I will be able to submit the $5 SC Johnson MIR Rebate. That takes off another $10 making my grand total $2.88 (after gift card & rebate) for all 3 transactions :).
