Extreme Couponing Canada at SDM, Shopping Deals x 2- Sept 20/11

extreme couponing canada

Stopped by Shoppers Drug Mart this morning to take advantage of the 18,500 points when you spend $75+ promotion. I was also planning on picking up some advil nighttime for the bonus points but my SDM was all sold out.

I did happen to find a great in store deal though. The bonus size bottles of Pantene shampoo were only $2.99 and since P&G coupons are no longer stackable, I jumped on this great price. Also stopped by Superstore after to pick up some onions and noticed they had manufacturer coupons for Pantene for $1 off, so I picked up some of those and headed back to Shoppers Drug Mart for another transaction.

  1. Lucky for you. Now, no one else can get any because you took all the tear away pads. They call that hoarding when you buy more than you can use.

      Please refer to my coupons FAQ’s, specifically these questions “How do you get multiples of coupons?” and “Do you really need all the items you buy?”

      I did not take away all the tear pads, nor am I hoarding.

  2. That’s awesome! I’m still wondering how people are getting more than one MIR since it says one per household because I’m pretty sure I have seen you buy it a few times now.

      Kyrstle,

      You can actually do one MIR per period :) There have been I believe, 6 or 7 different MIR’s in coupon inserts in the past few months. All have different purchase and deadline periods so you’re allowed to do one of each per household. I also send my MIR’s to 2 households, so I’ve been able to do quite a few. They include tax and postage so they’re a great way to get to the minimum spending points when there are promos like these.
