Price Chopper 6/18 (Nancy): Paid $15.26 for $71.73 of Merchandise (78.7% Saved!)


20150618_153351It feels like ages since I’ve been able to get to a Price Chopper. And would you believe it, the WHOLE reason I made a special trip was to get a rack of lamb for Father’s Day and they didn’t even have any (I would have called to check but they had it last time!) So, I had to switch up my plan for a Father’s Day dinner, but I doubt there will be any complaints with the pasta carbonara (with homemade pasta) I’ll be making instead.

As a mother/couponer who usually shops with her little one in-tow, this was a pleasant trip up until the last 15 minutes when my 20 month old woke up. Luckily, I had a lovely couponer behind me who helped me through the check-out process and I was able to spread the word about Couponaholic! The cashier and bagger were also kind and patient – a far cry from my traditional outings. BTW, my store accepts both Target Store coupons and Tops Markets Store coupons so this is why you see those used.

  1. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought they take dollar off coupon after other coupons and savings.
    Copied from their site: ” •We accept one (1) paper competitor “dollars off a category” coupon from other supermarkets and mass retailers (Wal-Mart & Target) in our trade area; the value of which may not exceed 50% of the order. This coupon may not be combined with any other “dollars off a category” coupon, including a Price Chopper “dollars off” coupon. An example of this type of coupon is a $5 off a $25 pet food purchase coupon. The dollar amount of the purchase requirement, if any, will be determined after AdvantEdge savings and all other coupons have been deducted.”

    • Rissti – That’s true. Thanks for copy/pasting that. The dollars off was taken after coupons/savings. I had other items in this trip that I did not write up (I usually shop for a friend of mine who has toddler twins and could use the help and savings) that kept me over the threshold to qualify.

      I do realize that maybe next time I’ll include those items or exclude that coupon that relies on those items as to not confuse anyone, especially if they’re trying to replicate anything. However, each store has different clearance items so my trip would likely differ anyway. Mostly, I hope that Price Chopper shoppers know their options for using competitor coupons because they can be game changers 🙂

      Thanks for bringing that to my attention!

    • I brushed up on their policy and was glad you nudged me to do so. I couldn’t remember their verbage of using using generic brand competitor coupons and I’m so glad I looked!

      “A paper competitor coupon for their store brand will be accepted for a comparable Price Chopper brand product of the same size & weight.”

      This means there are even more savings to be planned next time as Target usually has tons of coupons for their brands. Coupon knowledge is power 🙂

  2. It looks like only the baby food ($1.25 x 5) is organic; how’d they accept the $2 0ff $10 organic Q from Tops? And, wow, that’s a real stretch on “fresh food”!

    • Hi Morgan – I mentioned in a previous comment that some items were left out which also went towards those totals, as did some items in the write-up. I do realize this could be confusing so next time I’ll either include the food that went to my friend or just not include those coupons and mention to readers that they’re out there for use. And honestly, “fresh food” could be a lot of things; it doesn’t say just “fresh produce” so I believe it stretched to other items as well, which were in my overall cart.

      I shop for sustenance for my family, not to “extreme coupon” so my trips are not like many others. I have three part-time jobs, go to school, and have a 1.5 year old so I need to do what I need to do while I shop, which includes getting groceries for my close friend who watches my son occasionally. Her food was in the same bill as mine but I left hers out of the write-up. I’m just a real person who uses coupons and has limited time for shopping trips so there’s no multiple transactions or perfection here 🙂 It’s quite the event when I go shopping with a wonderfully curious toddler with limited time.

      I appreciate your keen eye on the trip, though!
