$1000 Worth of Del Monte Fruit Smoothies

Del Monte fruit smoothies were on sale this past week at Safeway for $1.00 each and there was a $1.00 off coupon available from the 8/15 Red Plum Sunday newspaper insert making these free. I had 20 of these coupons available and ended up getting $59.80 worth of fruit smoothies for $0.00:

I then received a bunch of coupons from a lady who works at a newspaper that collects the extra inserts for me which allowed me to buy an additional 328 — which pretty much filled up the trunk of my car:

Since these needed to be refrigerated, I immediately took them to the Milpitas Food Pantry where we loaded them up into their refrigerator unit:

All together, they were worth $1039.92 which didn’t cost me a cent bringing the combined total of what readers have donated and what I have donated to $17352.25.

    I just have a question about your couponing. How are you able to use multiple coupons (vendor or otherwise) for these items? I often get the “only one per purchase”.

    “One per purchase” means one coupon per item – it simply means that you can’t use 2 manufacturer coupons on the same item. If you have 5 different products, you can use a single coupon on each of those products.

  3. Have the rules changed for accepting coupons? I used to coupon about a decade ago when I was a stay at home mom and the stores in my area would not allow you to use more than three coupons of the same kind. So for example, if I had nine coupons (exactly the same kind of coupon) for Yoplait Yogurt, I would not be able to use all nine coupons, unless I wanted to go to a three different cashiers. It seems like a lot of people online use multiples of coupons with no problems whatsoever. So have the rules changed? Thanks, Mrs. A

    Most stores don’t have a limit on the number of coupons you can use as long as you only use one coupon per product purchased.
