A little of everything

Vons Trip 05/05/12

Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone!  Hope your day was great!

I didn’t really do anything.  I’m such a homebody it’s sickening!  My idea of a Saturday night is going to the grocery store and watching my Yankees play.  How about you?

Did I tell you how much I’m really loving the Vons Just for U program?

So far I am, let’s see if they can keep up the good deals.

Here’s what I picked up today:

  • 1 – Diet Cherry Pepsi 2 liter $0.59 + $0.10 CRV (Just 4 U price)
  • 1 – Pepsi Next 2 liter $0.59 + $0.10 CRV (Just 4 U price)
  • 1 – Diet Cherry 7 Up  2 liter $0.59 + $0.10 CRV (Just 4 U price)
  • 1 – Starbucks Refresher $2.39
  • 1 – Lay’s potato chips BBQ 10 oz $1.88 (Just 4 U price)
  • 1 – Lay’s potato chips BLT 10 oz $1.88 (Just 4 U price) – never saw this flavor before so just had to try!
  • 1 – La Victoria Salsa 16 oz $1.49
  • 2 – Mission tortillas 10 ct $1.29 ea
  • 1 – Jose Ole taquitos 15 ct $2.79
  • 1 – Daisy sour cream 16 oz $1.88
  • 2 – Cacique chorizo $0.99 ea

Total OOP:  $12.89 ($12.61 + $0.28 tax) 

Breakdown of savings:

  • Vons Card $12.51
  • Just for U Coupons $9.95
  • Paper Coupons $2.55
Total Savings:  $25.01

*Retail Value before sale prices, coupons and w/o tax $37.62

It seems you are able to use your manufacturer coupons and Just 4 U coupons.  I had a $0.55 Just 4 U coupon & $0.55 manufacturer coupon for the Pepsi Next and $1.00/2 Just 4 U & $1.00/2 manufacturer coupon for the Lay’s potato chips and had no issues using both.  The Pepsi Next ended up being -$0.51 and the Lay’s potato chips 2 bags for $1.76.  That’s cheaper than the sale price of $1.88 for one bag.

Also, for some reason the Starbucks Refresher ended up being -$0.89.  It started out $2.39 and then I received a card savings of $0.89, then the Just 4 U coupon of $2.39.  I’m guessing since the coupon was for a free item it just automatically gave the whole value of $2.39 off.

Don’t forget, if you have a Vons or Safeway near you be sure to sign up for the Just 4 U program!
