Team Couponaholic now has a Shop Your Way Personal Shopper account! Personal Shopper is a little bit of a misnomer, it’s more like “Personal Deal Finder,” ‘cuz while ya’ll are great, I’m not shopping for you, shopping for me is exhausting enough! 😉 There are a few benefits though to having a personal shopper:
- When you sign up, you’ll get a three month trial to SYW Max, which allows you to get free shipping on orders that are either over $30 or have a single item priced at over $10. There is no Credit Card required and it doesn’t automatically renew.
- Most months, Shop Your Way sends out a few bucks in points to members who are signed up with a personal shopper that are valid for a couple of days. There is no guarantee this will continue in the future, but it’s happened almost every month that I’ve been watching. I’ll be sure to let you know in the blog and on Shop Your Way, when this is coming.
- Personal Shoppers have the ability to send out store coupons to clients. What coupons are available tend to vary, but we definitely plan on sending out the best value coupon we can find to all clients on the first day of each Super Doubles.
I had a great trip to Kmart today. In case you didn’t know, this is a Super Doubles week and they are doubling your first five manufacturer’s coupons as long as they are face value $2 or less. I did end up having to change my game plan on the fly a bit, so I ended up a little short of the $25 pre-tax total for my first five coupons to double. We added two items to our order, but they aren’t pictured because they are already gone. (We both had a bottle of Gatorade that was on sale for $0.89.)
Here’s what we bought, along with the coupons used:
TWO TIDE ULTRA STAIN RELEASE LAUNDRY DETERGENT 37 OZ, reg. price $5.39 (note: only this variety is $5.39 at Kmart; others are $6.99!)

TWO VASELINE INTENSIVE CARE LOTION 10 OZ, on sale $3.86 (reg. $4.29)

One another note…I am not sure if any of these coupons beep when scanned normally. I checked out at Customer Service and she just manually entered all the coupon values. I am pretty sure that the coupons she entered for the Vaseline items automatically doubled up to exactly the item price without any extra intervention on her part.
Total Retail Value of All Merchandise: $28.33
Net Price Paid for Everything: $5.55
Savings Rate (excluding tax): 80.4%
