Hot QFC Deals This Week!

I almost NEVER shop at QFC, because in general, they have high prices and few good sales.  However, once in a while, there's a sale worth mentioning.  This is one of those times!

Through 5/10, they're doing a "Buy 10, Save $5" event.  There are tons of things included in the sale.  You can check out their ad, or visit Coupon Connections for a comprehensive list of sale items and coupon match-ups.

I did two transactions, just to make sure my $5 came off each time.  Here's what I did:

Transaction #1

(4) Boulder Potato Chips $.99 each
(2) Laughing Cow Cheese Wedges $2.49 each
(2) Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Spaghetti $.75 each
(2) Cliff Z Bar 6-pks $1.99 each

Total: $14.42

Used (4) $1/1 Boulder Chip coupons (use zip 90210)
$1/2 Laughing Cow coupons from 4/3 SS
(2) $.50/1 Ronzoni (any) coupons from 4/10 SS
(2) $1/1 Cliff Z Bar coupons

Total OOP: $6.42

Transaction #2

(4) Nutri-Grain Bar 8-pks $1.99 each
(2) Mom's Best Naturals Cereal $.99 each
(4) Uncle Ben's Ready Rice Pouches $1.25 each
(8) Chiquita Bites Apples (these were not included in the event, but were clearance priced at $.49 each)

Total: $18.86

Used (2) $1/2 Nutri-Grain coupons from inside other Nutri-Grain pkg I bought previously
(2) $.75/1 Mom's Best Naturals coupons
(3) $.75/1 Uncle Ben's Ready Rice coupons from 3/20 RP (or you can print one here)
FREE Uncle Ben's Ready Rice coupon I got in the mail
(4) $1/2 Chiquita Bites coupons from 4/17 SS (made all the apples free)

Total OOP: $7.86

Now, these might seem like high totals to some, compared to the free or under $1 transactions we can often pull off.  However, the items I got, like the Z Bars, Nutri Grain bars, rice, etc. are things I buy for my family, and almost always pay way more for.  Z Bars generally run $2.50 or more for a 6-pack, so $.99 is a STEAL!  Nutri-Grain bars for $1.49 are also a great deal in my house.  And who can argue with free apples and potato chips???  A good trip, all in all.
