I got a great deal on cat food today that I wanted to pass along, though I am sure it could be used for dog food as well.
The small bags of Purina Cat Food are on sale at Pet Smart for $4.99 with your Pet Perks card.
On 9/13/09 there was a $3 off Purina coupon in the Red Plum insert (this coupon was good for cat and dog food). So I took that with me.
Additionally there was a $1 off coupon stickie on the bag!
When I took them up to the cashier she allowed me to stack them, so my bag of cat food was $.99!
Even without stacking what a great deal!
So this morning I hit up Harris Teeter before work and you can see what I came home with in the picture above. It was not my greatest morning of triple coupons ever, but I wanted to break it down to show you how the sales work. (Prices may be a little different where you live.)
VIVA Big Roll Paper Towels
Regular Price $2.69
1 coupon for $.85 ($.85 tripled is $2.55)
Final price: $.14

Regular price $10.20 (for all 12)
Sale price with VIC card $7.20 (for all 12)
3 coupons for $.40 off of 4 ($.40 tripled is $1.20 x 3 coupons= $3.60)

This last one was a great deal. Right now at Harris Teeter if you purchase 5 or more boxes of Green Giant frozen vegetables you get a $3 off coupon for your next visit to Harris Teeter.
Green Giant Frozen Vegetable (2 boxes)
Regular Price $3.58 (for both)
Price with VIC card $1.98 (for both)
1 coupon for $.50 off 2 (tripled is $1.50)
Final price: $.48 for both boxes
PLUS since I did this three times for a total of six boxes, I got the $3 off coupon!
All of this took about 30 minutes last night sitting on the floor while watching The Biggest Loser. How long it will take in Harris Teeter depends on how well you know the store. Here is my advice:
– Give yourself plenty of time. If you are in a rush at the store you will lose count of things, mix up coupons or forget items. You need to be able to relax.
– If you have never done triples, I would recommend not using self check out. It is sometimes easier to have the cashier handle everything.
– Don’t expect to buy a million things. You can only use 20 coupons a day.
– This is the biggest and most important one: If you really want to make a killing at triple coupons just shop for specific items and not meals. Unless you shop at Harris Teeter for your groceries all the time, their prices may not be cheaper than where you generally shop. I usually come home with everything and plan my meals out of what is in my pantry- then I can run to my discount store and buy whatever ingredients I need.
If you want any help or have any more advice please comment to this and I will be sure to post it for everyone to see. Also, if you get some great deals and want to share, please leave a comment too!

I feel like I have seen it in enough places now that I can say with some confidence that Harris Teeter begins Triple Coupons tomorrow. (If I get it from one of my rock solid sources I will let you know. Also as some other on-line frugalistas post their deals I will link them on here.) They will go from 9/16 – 9/22 starting at 7 a.m.
Some basic rules for the rookies about Triple Coupons
– Only coupons up to $.99 are tripled
– MOST of the time even if the coupon says not to double or triple they still will. Don’t hold me to it, but the odds are pretty good.
– You have to have a VIC card for coupons to be tripled
– Only 20 coupons are accepted per day, per household
– Only one coupon per item- they do not triple their own coupons
– MOST of the time if something is B1G1 free and you only get one, it will ring up half price. There are exceptions so be sure to grab the sales ad.
Here is their coupon policy if you would like to read more!
I will post some of my own personal advice a little bit later. There are ways to really maximize the triple coupon experience!
