Reader Shared 100% Savings at CountryMart!

I received a message this morning from a reader I met in town while couponing at Walgreen’s. She made a shopping trip to CountryMart with 15 Kool-Aid coupons only intending on buying the Kool-Aid but when she made it to the register her coupons  all doubled to give her overage and she had to add things to cover it! Her receipt showed 100% savings!

You never know what a cashier will do with the overage. Sometimes they have been trained to follow the policy to a T. Other times the store is a little more lenient and will only require that they can’t give you cash-back. This was one of those times for this lucky reader and her savings show that!

I have to admit that I’m a little jealous since I have yet to make a 100% savings shopping trip myself. The best I’ve made on a single receipt is 87%. But both are savings to be proud of and I hope other readers are finding the same when they shop!


About CharityAnn

I'm a small town, stay at home mom living on a shoestring budget. I spend my time working as a ChaCha guide from home, searching out internet coupons and deals, and entering sweepstakes for fun prizes we couldn't normally afford. Through ChaCha, coupons, deals, and sweepstakes I have found a way to continue staying home with my kids while still affording the things we want. I'm still learning what works and what doesn't, but I hope to share my finds with local readers so that we may all enjoy what our small town has to offer without paying big city prices.
