Shopping Report Friday 9/19 Acme

Thanks to Lisa's Bargain Alert I saw the heads up on Thursday that ACME is starting their own gas deal. Though this deal doesn't have me bouncing for joy because it is with Exxon and their are no reasonably priced Exxon stations in my town, but I will be on the road this weekend, so it may end up being beneficial.

The gas deal gives you a coupon for discount per gallon of gas, based on the total of your grocery bill. I was really curious to see how this would be affected by the use of coupons. So instead of doing smaller orders (which I normally do to make it easier for me to make sure that prices are ringing up right). BTW Coupons do not affect the printing of your gas coupon!

So here is the breakdown to earn gas coupons

Spend $50 get $.05 off per gallon
Spend $75 get $.10 off per gallon
Spend $100 get $.15 off per gallon
Spend $125 get $.20 off per gallon
Spend $150 get $.25 off per gallon
Spend $175 get $.30 off per gallon
Spend $200 get $.35 off per gallon

and you can use 2 coupons at one time, on up to 15 gallons

And here is my ACME purchase for today

8 boxes Homelife Facial Tissues @ $.89 each =$7.12
10 packages Homelife Napkins @ $1 each = $10
2 Homelife Paper Plate Packs @ $1.50 = $3
