Giant Eagle Shopping Trip Week of 5/8/14 – 5/14/14


Giant Eagle Shopping Trip

I picked a horrible day to go shopping…it was SO AWESOME outside today and I’m bummed that I missed being out in the sun.  My Giant Eagle is about 30 minutes away and it’s not far from the mall.  So once I’m up that way, I have to hit the mall too which took up a lot of time AND I ended up buying nothing (so it was a waste of time)!

Anyway, I spent $100.23 on this Giant Eagle shopping trip and saved $86.02 ($45.42 from weekly special and $40.60 from coupons).  I also earned 20¢ fuelperks (valued put to $6!) for spending $100!  You automatically get 10¢ every time you spend $50!   Click “Read More“!

I did purchase a few non-coupon items including the frozen Giant Eagle  Cheddar Cheese & Bacon Burgers which were $10.  They had samples to taste and they were actually really good especially for frozen burgers!  So their marketing trick got me to buy!!  Plus I purchased 4 other packages of meat!  So about $34 of the $100 trip was just for meat!

Many of these deals are advertised in the weekly ad but a handful are unadvertised! You can see the Full Giant Eagle Matchup here.  My main focus this week was grabbing the toilet paper, paper towels and detergent deals but I was also happy to get the cheap pop, free beans and other items 🙂

I used my “FREE” Ritz Bacon Flavored Crackers coupon even though I would owe 29¢ since the coupon was valid up to $2.50 and they are $2.79 at Giant Eagle.  I had my whole family try them.  My husband and I said that they were okay although I probably wouldn’t “buy” them again….maybe for 29¢?!  My son and youngest daughter said they smelled like dog treats and my oldest daughter said “gross”.  Sooooo, these were not a big hit at my house 🙂

  1. Lol about the Ritz…. My Girls said the exact same thing. My son said they tasted a little like hot dogs 🙂

  2. I’m glad my $.55/2 printable cpn for eggs was still good thru yesterday – I managed to get 2 doz. of large eggs for $1.90 or $.95 each on yesterday! $2 for 2 Reddi Whip (6.5 oz) and a container of strawberries wasn’t bad, either! 🙂

    • It has to do with Java 🙁 Some people have luck while others can uninstall and reinstall and still not get it to work.
