Randalls lunch run with loadables

There were several great deals at Randalls with all my loadables from cellfire and shortcuts. I did however mess up in my calculating. I wanted to use the .99 milk and .99 Kraft singles coupon in the Safeway ad but my total after all my loadables came off was only ~$15(it needed to be $20 for those coupons). Unfortunately, I really needed the milk and cheese and thought it would be cheaper to toss in a few items last minute. Turns out, that cost me more than I saved so I would have been better off just NOT using the in ad coupons and NOT getting the Diet DP that I surely did not need(hindsight is 20-20!) Oh well, GREAT trip otherwise! Here is my breakdown:

(Keep in mind, my store doubles .50 and lower and triples .35 and lower coupons)

Betty Crocker Warm Delights $1.69 - .50 Shortcuts - 2 .50 Cellfire - .50 IP = -.81
Progresso broth $2.99 - .50 Shortcuts - 2 .50 Cellfire = .49
2 Old El Paso refried beans $1.15 each -.60/2 Shortcuts- 2 .60/2 Cellfire - .60/2 IP = -.10
Old El Paso taco seasoning $0.55 - free wyb 2 OEP products peelie = 0
Wacky Mac $0.99 - .75 IP = .24 (also .50 loadable at Upromise)
Green Giant Immunity $1.67 each - .50/2 Shortcuts - 2 .50/2 Cellfire - .50/2 IP= $0.84 (I got to sample these at the Gen. Mills Tabletalk event and they are YUMMY)

6 Yoplait cups .55 each - .50/6 Shortcuts- 2 .50/6 Cellfire -.50/6 IP= $0.80
2 Yoplait GoGurt $2 each - 2 .80/2 Shortcuts- 2 .80/2 Cellfire - .35 insert - .40 IP= -$1.05
Yo Plus $2.50 - 2 $1 Cellfire - $1 IP= -.50
Kotex pads $2.79 - 2 $1 Cellfire - $1 insert = -.21
Kraft singles $2.49 - $1.50 Safeway ad coupon = .99
Lucerne milk $1.99 - $1 Safeway ad coupon = .99
Safeway tuna $0.79 -.55 coupon from Hurricane map(found at Houston stores)

Safeway green beans $0.79 -$1.15 free coupon from Hurricane map (cashier entered it for regular shelf price) = -.36

3 Diet Dr Pepper 20 oz $1.49 each

Tax : $0.39

Total cost oop = $6.42 (keep in mind $4.47 of that is my Diet DP. Would have cost me $4.45 for everything if I didn't use the Safeway ad coupons or if I would have calculated better, I could have gotten another item that I have a free coupon for to get me to the $20)
*Also, please note, I used primarily printables(IP) this round, but many of these same coupons can be found in the inserts. Please go to the HCW database to find what week the coupons can be found.

which randalls do you shop at? I shop at the one on Mason n Highland knolls and the cashier there told me that they don't double/triple.

I have shopped that Randalls and they do in fact d/t one "like" coupon per transaction.

So you can use both CF and SC loadables on one product? You can't do that at Kroger and I haven't tried it at Randall's yet.

Stephanie (aka zoeys_mom, ZM) said...

yes, it appears Randalls is set up to take all coupons off on one purchase.

are these deals/prices still going on for this week's sales?

Stephanie (aka zoeys_mom, ZM) said...

Most these were not sale prices, so yes. The exceptions would be the milk and cheese since those were ad coupons. Also the Go gurt was marked $2.49 on the shelf but rang up $2, so not sure if that still holds true.
