$8 OFF + a $3 OFF coupon seems like an unbeatable deal. So why am I going to pay full price for it? Read to find out!

$8 OFF + a $3 OFF coupon seems like an unbeatable deal. So why am I going to pay full price for it? Read to find out!

I love Garnier BB Creme!  Anything that saves a step in the morning is AOK by me, and this one combines mosturizer with foundation/tint.  It’s on sale at Shoppers Drug Mart until today, but there’s a 18,500 Bonus Optimum Points Coupon for tomorrow.  Ahhh!  Which deal is best?  (talk about “first world problems!”)

Today:

  • Sale price $11.99
  • Canadian Coupon for $3 OFF (from FREE sample that came in the mail or order yours from the hidden WebSaver portal)
  • Total $8.99  or 56% OFF the regular price

Tomorrow:

  • Regular price $19.99
  • Shoppers Drug Mart Coupon for 18,500 points with $75 purchase (click here for details)
  • Canadian Coupon for $3 OFF (from FREE sample that came in the mail or order from hidden WebSaver portal)
  • Total $16.99 or 16% OFF the regular price
  • EARN 4930 Bonus Points* worth $11.83 in FREE stuff at a Spend Your Points Event
  • Virtual Total in the longrun: $5.16 or 76% OFF!

Wow!  Even though the sale price of $11.99 looks better at first, by stocking up on items with manufacturer’s coupons during these Bonus Points Events, the eventual savings are greater.  I realize that not everyone has the time (or desire!) to sit down and figure out when it’s best to purchase a sale item, but by taking a few minutes before these Shoppers Drug Mart promotions, I’m often able to ensure that I’m saving in the 70-80% OFF range on most items.

Redeeming Canadian Coupons at these events is a GREAT way to reach the minimum threshold of $75 without actually spending that much!  The threshold total is calculated before manufacturer’s coupons (except for items that are FREE as part of a FPC -free product coupon, or part of a Buy 1 Get 1 offer).  To reach the minimum $75 threshold tomorrow, my list includes:

  • milk, bread, eggs, yogurt,
  • Garnier BB creme, Garnier Ultra Lift Serum
  • Sunscreen

I’ll be redeeming $13 in Canadian Coupons so will only be spending $62 plus tax.  I have coupons for:

  • $3 OFF BB Creme
  • $3 OFF Ultra Lift
  • $1 OFF sunscreen
  • $5 OFF when you buy 3 Danone products
  • $1 OFF bread

Being a Save-at-Home-Mom means that I do have the time to compare flyer prices and work out when it’s best to redeem my Canadian Coupons.  I spent about 10 minutes planning out my trip for tomorrow:  not a bad time:savings ratio as far as I’m concerned!

*Caluclations based on 18,500/$75 = each dollar spend earns 246 Bonus Optimum Points

Happy Couponing!
