3 boxes of cereal for $1!!!

Yes, you read that right! What an incredible deal! I am still rejoicing in it! Last week, I was looking over the weekly Acme circular and sorting through my coupons for the best deals. Well, I saw they were selling some select Kellogg's cereals for 3 for $6 with the super card. I then found 3 separate $1.00 off coupons for the same cereals. Sweet! I went to the store last Wednesday and discovered some of the cereals were out of stock and I was told to come back on Thursday. I got a few other groceries while I was there and at the end of the transaction I got a $2 off coupon for a future order.....so, on Thursday evening, I told DVB I wanted to go and get this cereal deal. I mentioned I would be getting a pretty incredible deal. I got to the store, coupons in hand, quickly grab my three boxes of usually very expensive cereal, and headed to the register. I told the cashier "I am so excited to be getting 3 boxes for $1." He didn't know what I was talking about. He looked at me like I was crazy. This wasn't the Dollar Store. He rang up the boxes and I proceeded to hand him my four coupons. (recap....3 $1 off coupons and the Acme $2 off coupon) Yep, a total savings of $12.71 with the sale they were having. Very satisfying. I even got compliments from the couple behind me that then happened to visit our church the following Sunday. On Sunday they said to me, "hey, you're the girl who got the 3 boxes of cereal for $1, right?" I smiled with delight! Take home message...it really works to look over the circular and the Sunday paper coupons!
