Grocery Shopping at Meijer

Grocery Total: $54.27
Spent: $13.72 & Saved: $40.55
15 coupons spent
5 FREE items (one bottle of juice and 4 of the Lysol tubs)

Lysol wipes had been on sale several weeks ago, and there had also been Lysol Mealbox (Meijer exclusive) coupons at the same time. I picked up a rain check for the wipes, but I had unfortunatly put it in so safe of a location that I couldn't find it!

While purging my coupon box of expired coupons last week, I found my rain check- but the rain check and my Mealbox coupons were long since expired! I was super bummed since the rain check guaranteed me the $1.50/tub on my Lysol wipes, and I had Mealbox coupon for $1/2 AND I had purchased Lysol toilet bowl cleaners with extra Lysol coupons on the packaging several months ago that included a $1/1 Lysol wipes coupon- which would make my Lysol wipes FREE!!!

So I decided to stop by the customer service desk before I shopped to see if there was any way that I could still spend my rain check and Mealbox coupons... I was thrilled when a new rain check was written for my Lysol wipes- and a manager still allowed me to spend 2 of my 5 expired Mealbox coupons... so I paid $3 for 10 tubs!

It definately pays to ask!
