Small Couponing/Price Matching Trip - Walmart & CVS 2.6.14


Today was so peaceful...it was great...well until my little sweet girls decided to not be so sweet after MDO program. Thankfully, it only lasted a little while.

Okay back to why I am posting...

After coffee with a friend, I stopped at a Walmart to look for the Hydroxycut Lean Protein Shakes. I had (4) $5 off coupons which would mean a $1.02 money maker for each one. I wanted to use this to pay for fruit that we needed - I priced matched the strawberries and grapes from Aldi.

I had to go to another Walmart to find the shakes but I still found items I needed at the first stop. Here is a breakdown of my stops.

I was very happy with my savings today. I did not like that the last cashier at Walmart tried to argue with me about me using the $5 off coupons since they were more than the product but Walmart gives overage toward the rest of your purchase. I did not allow for an argument to start...my girls were with me and it is not worth my time.

I have the store manager's cell number in case I have any problems anyways...if things would have gotten out of hand. Thankfully it did not.

Have you price matched at Walmart? Let me know your experiences.
