A little of everything

Vons App & Trip 05/01/12

If you haven’t signed up for the Vons Just for U program, you really need to now.  It has been going on for a while, but for some reason I never signed up for it.  I never had any luck with other programs that were to attach coupons to my Vons card.  It wasn’t until I was in the store recently and they told me about the app that was out. Being the phone app addict that I am, I decided to try it out and based on this trip, I think it worked out pretty well.

I only used two paper coupons for this trip, but I had a 50% savings, which I think is pretty good considering I was picking up mostly staple items.

Here’s the breakdown of what I purchased based on my receipt.  For this purchase I am just listing the resulting cost per item after all discounts & coupons applied.

  • 5 – Starkist tuna 5 oz $0.77 ea
  • 4 – Lucerne cream cheese 8 oz $1.29 ea
  • 1 – Lucerne shredded cheese, mexican 8 oz $1.99
  • 1 – Lucerne shredded cheese, sharp $1.99
  • 1 – Milk gallon $2.60
  • 2 – Pantry Essential frozen broccoli $1.98 ea
  • 2 – Lucerne butter 1 lb $3.49 ea
  • 2 – Lysol wipes 35 ct $1.49 ea
  • 1 – French bread $1.69
  • 2 – Sara Lee bagels $2.50 ea
  • 3 – Oscar Mayer Lunchables pizza $0.25 ea
  • 2 – Oscar Mayer Lunchables with fruit $1.88 ea
  • 4 – Buddig lunch meat 2 oz $0.59 ea
  • 2 – Apples $1.20 ea

Total OOP:  $39.82 ($39.51 + $0.31 tax) 

Breakdown of savings:

  • Vons Card $18.07
  • Just for U Coupons $10.69
  • Just for U Personalized Savings $8.09
  • Paper Coupons $2.00
Total Savings:  $38.85

*Retail Value before sale prices, coupons and w/o tax $78.36

I may have been overcharged for the apples or my daughter chose the wrong ones. She thought they were $0.77 per lb. and these rang up at $3.49 per lb.  For two it was just .67 lbs.  Also it seems my paper coupon for the Lunchables with Fruit for $1.00 was applied to the smaller Lunchables.

Overall, I was very pleased with the results and will definitely be using the Just for U app again!
