Walmart PAID Me To Eat Dinner

I have only been to Walmart a few times since I began couponing.  It scares me.  I just do not like them.  But it was 7PM when I left the project I was working on and I was starving.  So I gave in and bought a terrible-for-me and full of gluten frozen pizza at Wally World.  Sometimes you just have to give in to temptations in life!  And crackers for my dad who is sick.  But since I was there, I decided to test out that new coupon policy and use up some formula check coupons that I had hanging around.  This trip was far more successful than any other, actually.  The check out girl couldn't figure out the check coupons at first but then she just manually put them through.  Works for me!  Oh and I used the $2/1 Dial lotion or body wash coupons on the $0.97 body wash bottles for $4.12 overage.

Notice the Ball jar tops.  I plan to make my first batch of 2011 summer berry jam this weekend.  Mmmm!

Total value purchased ... $24.38
Earned (no out of pocket costs!) ... +$6.08

Yup, you did indeed read that correctly.  I walked away with cash in hand!  I made money.  They paid me to take all of that crappy food home.  Not too shabby my friends!  Odd, but good.

That's great! I've been liking Walmart more and more lately. Glad you could find some Dial, my store didn't have any (I did go Tuesday though) Cool you could walk out w/ cash - I know they do that but I don't think I'm brazen enough to do it, lol :-)
