This week’s grocery haul: I got paid $7 to take $67 worth of Cheese, Sausage, Candy Bars, Toothpaste, Cereal, and more!

Here are the goodies.

Today's trip didn't go as planned, but I managed to turn it into a money maker. Next week should be pretty nice since I'll be finishing up that $10 bonus. The barefoot wine wasn't available in my state, unfortunately. I had misread the terms.

Tons of good deals I couldn't take advantage of, so be sure to check those out below.

 


Total: $67.19

Coupons: $3.50

Total Cash Back: $71.08

Final Cost: -$7.39 – Money Maker!

Here is the complete break down and sites used. The Super Pretzel coupon was sent to me in the mail. The $3 ECB was emailed to me. I didn't do anything to earn it, and it would've expired in a couple days if I hadn't used it. The Chase offer was to use their tap to pay 3x. I don't include sites that take any receipt such as Coinout, ReceiptPal, etc on my breakdown. The stores are listed in the breakdown image.

 

Brandclub is a new addition to my hauls. If you're not familiar with the app, you can read about it on the post I made the other day. I also have a guide about how I do trips like this if you're interested. Note: Individual deals vary by user for most apps. If you don't have the deals right now, you can try checking back later.

If you aren't interested in this kind of thing, please keep your comments to yourself. If you don't like what I buy, you can buy different products. If you don't like hunting for deals, you can do surveys, microtasks, games or whatever else you like instead. There is no need to discourage other users just because you aren't interested in the same things!

 

Some additional deals I didn't/couldn't take advantage of:

  • Beyond Meat Jerky has a $1.25 rebate on Ibotta. That makes the 1oz packages ~$0.50

  • Back to the Roots soil is free at Lowes on Fetch.

  • Text "GET FREE NUGGS" to 1-804-577-1110 for rebate for nuggs

  • $5 coupon for Kellogg's products when you purchase select Kellogg's products (Actually, I did do this one, but I'm not putting it in my breakdown image just yet since it's a coupon.) You could also submit it to Kellogg's Family Rewards, but I don't like their rewards this month.

  • Save up to $6 when you buy $10 worth of General Mills, Yoplait, and Bananas. – $3 rebate and $3 coupon(?).

  • Up to $9.99 rebate on Barefoot wine. Be careful! Their terms say which states are NOT available.

  • $1 Townhouse coupon on Kellogg's family rewards. Pair this with the $1.50 Ibotta rebate, and you can get 2 packs of crackers for pretty cheap.

  • Miracle grow and Bonnie plants have rebates on Ibotta.

  • Country Crock Stick Butter (Ibotta + coupon)

  • Poligrip – Ibotta + Shopkick + coupon = ~$1.30. Bonus $1.50 if you shop at Shoprite

  • Free coca cola energy (Single + 4-pack) on Ibotta

  • Kaboom and Oxiclean at Dollar General – Pair with the $5/25 Saturday coupon, and many stores have coupons on the products (mine didn't)

  • $2 rebates for Morningstar on Ibotta

 

Afterthoughts

Today's trip was… wild. It didn't go as planned at all. It was originally going to cost me about $10 for $130+ worth of stuff. This is a bit high for a deal haul, but it included quite a few barely-deals-but-I-love-them stuff like Van De Kamp, Tyson, Bonnie plants, etc. In the end I managed to turn it into a money maker instead.

First stop was the Dollar Tree. Turns out the Colgate no longer qualifies for the one rebate, which was disappointing. I found a couple non-deal things I had been looking for though, so that was nice. Next was Walmart. I ended up finding Crest and Zim's marked down, which was exciting. I also found our store now carries the Keto Core Bars which will make for some easy deals next week. Our store was out of the barely-deal things I wanted, which makes my total look better but I was a bit disappointed because of it. Dollar General wasn't fun at all though. I couldn't find multiple items despite the app saying they were there, and so my $2 money making $30 haul turned into a $1 money maker for $5 worth of stuff.

Upon coming home and scanning my receipt, I noticed I got a "second" any receipt rebate. I did my CVS haul yesterday and used the Any Receipt then, so I was pretty shocked to see it come back already. I also didn't immediately get credit for the Perdue, which I'm a bit annoyed about. I'm going to have to contact support to try to get credited. I found out that the Barefoot wine rebate doesn't work in my state. I swear I saw PA listed in the dropdown menu yesterday, and I did read the terms beforehand but I didn't realize that it lists the states it DOESN'T work in rather than the ones it does. I thought it was weird PA would get a rebate like that. Thankfully it's only a $7 bottle of wine. I also took a gamble on the Pure Protein crackers. I heard there were some high value coupons in the boxes, which would make my next item a money maker. Unfortunately, there weren't any in mine. They taste alright, kind of like super crunch off-brand Cheez-Its, but still expensive at $0.50 a bag.

I also included the Chase tap to pay 3x deal in this haul. Normally I don't include things that could be done whenever, but realistically I wouldn't have just done this whenever. The cash back rate on my Chase card is low, and I have only ever used tap to pay one time before (the cashier insisted I use it). I keep it since it's my oldest card, but I just normally only use it for a small monthly service.

 

Food From Deals

It's been a pretty lazy week for me, so I made some pretty lazy foods using deal items such as some strawberry milk, salmon cooked in red wine with a side of buttered pasta, and egg & pepperoni on a cheddar jalapeno wrap. Yesterday I was craving some sweets though so I whipped up some blueberry banana muffins using that baby food I got last week, and some more of these cinnamon rolls because they were absolutely fantastic and I needed more.

Do you guys want me to continue showing things I've made using ingredients I got from rebate apps on these posts? Let me know in the comments, or you can fill out this form if you want to remain anonymous.
