There often comes along a coupon that your family could/would use a lot of and it is also a HIGH VALUE Coupon. Those are the one’s you would love to get quite a few of and so you look to trade. Often that is when you find that there are lots out there for trade but it seems like people want an arm or leg, first born, all the FPC’S and you just shake your head wondering what to do.
I seldom trade these day’s as I have found that I just don’t want to get into that type of trading. I have a few close couponing friends (we call ourselves Frugal Friends). If one of us needs a specific coupon and the other’s have them we simply give them to each other and it balances out). If one of us needs printable’s we simply print and give them the printable’s as we also live close to each other. You could join forces with a small group of friends and simply trade back and forth.
The Oasis Coupon’s are one’s right now that are coveted coupons and are trading but at the arm and leg level trades lol, sooo here’s what I decided to do to get our family quite a few of these little gems as I didn’t want to give away/trade my Chapman’s, or other FPC’s that our family would use.
My husband drinks a LOT of Juice and he loves the Oasis Juice, plus our grandkids uses the small tetra juices for school, summer outings, camps etc.
So the past few weeks and this week at Superstore you will find the GRAVES Apples Juice on sale for $.99. I took $30 and purchased 30 bottles, ensuring I got the one’s with the Coupon’s on the label.
The Coupons are $1.50 off 1.75 L Oasis, $1.50 off select Tetra Packages and a third of another Oasis Juice for $1.50, a total of $4.50.
Our family loves Apple Juice so these will not go to waste with our family and the grandkids, plus I now have lots of these coupon’s…a true win win for our family.
The large Oasis Juice which we purchase almost weekly often goes on for sale for $3.99 or at Shopper’s last week for example for $2.99. After Coupon I managed to get 8 of these at $1.49 each (regular priced at $4.99) and froze them. That saved us $12 right there, making the out of pocket currently $18.00 ( $30 – $12 ) and we still have 30 Apple Juice. AND there will be more savings to come from the coupons!
The Tetra packs are 8 x 200 ml for $2.25 at Walmart, after coupon .75! I am waiting for the sale to get these for FREE and will load up for the grandkids!
Plus the 3rd coupon, well I am waiting for a good sale on these as well…hopefully FREE as well.
Instead of trading my wonderful mailout coupons or FPC’s I felt this worked best for our family on this particular coupon and saved me a LOT of frustration in trying to trade!
Just a little “To Trade or Not to Trade” food for thought!
