That’s right, I actually just paid 36.00 for almost $800.00 dollars worth of P&G products.
Amazing, I could take a $10.00 coupon for one expensive product that I’d never buy and use it for some $4.99 Downey and still have almost $5.00 in overage, and the grocery store was perfectly okay with it. It seemed too good to be true, but I asked the store’s manager and he confirmed that both Winn Dixie and P&G were aware of the coupons family swapping going on.
I loaded up with newspapers with the P&G Brandsaver inserts the very next Sunday and traced down every P&G 3700 coupon I could find. Winn Dixie upheld their policy to only take four like coupons in one transaction and limited customers to three transactions per visit, meaning a total usage of 12 alike coupons. Under those conditions, I walked away with $184.00 worth of P&G products ranging from Bounty to Scope and paid only .37 cents. In the following two weeks, I’ve made seven more trips to Winn Dixie:
*23 items worth over $120.00 for $5.26.
*28 items worth $128.53 for $1.44.
*24 items worth $116.60 for .30 cents.
*26 items worth $146.85 for .18 cents.
*37 items worth $149.47 for $9.24.
*17 items worth $83.26 for $1.76.
* 5 items worth $44.00 for $6.61
Winn Dixie will not give cash for the overage…you must use the money or forfeit it. As you see, I used the overage in many of my transactions to even get non-P&G products like Sara Lee bread, milk, and meat.
I do want to stress that both my store, Winn Dixie, and the distributor, P&G, are aware and willing participants in this extraordinary P&G coupon family swapping. As per usual protocol and despite Winn Dixie’s acceptance, my local Wal-Mart, Piggly Wiggly, Dollar General, Family Dollar, Kroger, etc.. will only accept coupons when congruent with the product and amount specified on the coupon.
I have no idea why Winn Dixie and P&G are allowing this crazy, absurd amount of savings, but they are. Do check with your store to determine if they will allow this type of coupon transaction, as doing so without the store’s knowledge would indeed be fraud.
