My Forays Into Extreme Couponing! {Also, Better Than Free Honey Maid Graham Crackers At RiteAid!}

One of the ways I have been saving money has been...
EXTREME COUPONING!

 I started out as a casual couponer, using a $0.50 off coupon on my Smart Balance butter. Within a week, I discovered I am not casual. I have all the attributes of a good couponer - eagerness, thriftiness, TIME, zeal, access to many computers/printers, organization, and enthusiasm.
 
And then it got crazy.
 
Soon, I found that I could get things for FREE. Well, I'm a sucker for free. Here's a breakdown of my latest deal:
 

To do this deal, you'll need a RiteAid card, and 2 Nabisco coupons from www.smartsource.com (choose Nabisco from the brand drop down menu, press go, then select the first and only coupon - $1/2).
 
Certain Nabisco items are 2/$5 at RiteAid (Honey Maid, Cheese Nips, Saltines, and Ritz Crackerfuls).
 
There is also a $2 UP Reward (money you can use at RiteAid the following day), PLUS a $5 Up Reward when you spend $10.
 
SO, if you buy FOUR boxes, that would be $10. You'll get $5 in UP Rewards, $4 in Up Rewards ($2 per box). That's a cost of $1 to you.
 
BUT, use your coupons and you'll save an additional $2, which means you're getting FOUR boxes and making $1!
 
 
With the coupons, you have an out of pocket cost of $8, without them, it's $10. Note: there is a limit of 3 uses per RiteAid card for each UP Reward ($5, $2).
 
 
My receipt was $0 because I had enough UP Rewards in my account to pay for the out of pocket costs.
 
This is still a good deal even without the coupons! I am using some of these, but a lot of them will be donated to a food drive at a local school this holiday season. FREE GIVING! :) 
 
I first heard about this deal from SouthernCaliSaver. Note: this deal may not be good in all areas - check your flyer for the UP Rewards listed.
