In recent years a lot of grocery stores have started offering 10/$10 sales, where you can buy 10 items for $10. Most of the time you do not have to buy 10 to get the deal, you can buy however many you need for $1 each. You do need to check the tags to make sure, because sometimes there are quantity limits, or you may even have to buy 10 items for the sale price. Always check the fine print!
A prime example is a sale that started today (yesterday in some areas) at Publix stores: Crest Toothpaste, 10/$10, or $1 each. There just so happens to be a few varieties of coupons out there right now, a few that would make the item free:
- $1/1 Crest Paste, 4 oz. or larger; 6/27 RedPlum
- FREE after coupon
- $.75/1 Crest Toothpaste, 4 oz. or larger, or Liquid Gel; 7/4 P&G Insert
- $.25 after coupon
- $.50/1 Crest Toothpaste, 4 oz. or larger; 6/6 P&G
- If your store doubles, as most Publix stores do*, FREE after coupon
If you don't have these coupons, you can still get them in time. eBay is an excellent source for coupons; you do have to pay a small fee for the clippers time and packaging, but the savings still outweigh the cost. There are many other sites to get coupons, such as The Coupon Clippers and The Coupon Master.
I look every week for 10/$10 deals, then I look to see if there are coupons available for that item. These sales are a great way to get started in saving money!
The Crest Toothpaste sale is one of the many great deals at Publix this week. For a full list and coupon matchups, check out I Heart Publix!
*Unfortunately, Publix stores in Florida do not double coupons; always check with your store just to make sure!
