I got that, too! Super stupid question from a beginner - I'm assuming that this means you can get the $10 discount after spending $40 but BEFORE your coupons are deducted, right? So I can just make it to $40 and then get my $10 off and all my coupons, too. No? I've never tried a deal like this at Bloom before.

Yes! If you work in a Big Deal match up with it that'd be an AWESOME deal!!

That's my plan. It's the biggest-picture attempt I've made yet. But I'm hoping to combine toothpaste, cheerios, and Dawn to get the $5 off plus another $6 of groceries to hit the $40. Then use four $1 off Crest coupons (on six tubes), $1 off 3 Cheerios coupon and a doubled 20 cent Dawn coupon to get the maximum discount.

Gosh, I hope it works. I'm nervous! Thanks so much for your help.

It is not in-store, just the mailed versions. I think I might hit up my neighbors for their copies.

Well, I don't know about the daily paper. We got ours in the mail in the RP business discount circular.

Fyi

Okay speaking of the Bloom $10/$40 coupons, don't forget if you live in the N VA or Metro DC/MD areas, that Giant Food will honor the Bloom store coupons as Competitor Coupons.

I believe HT will also honor $/$$ Competitor Coupons. So if you live in N VA area and are near Ashburn, VA area, the HT Goose Creek Village store just had its Grand Opening. The HT Grand Opening Goose Creek store in Ashburn, VA has its $20 VIC Pharmacy Credit too. So combine that with the $10/$40 Bloom Competitor Coupons, you have quite a deal!

For those of you wishing for more $/$$ Bloom in ad coupons, if you are in N VA areas or Metro DC/MD areas, check your local weekly newspapers that usually will have the new weekly grocery ads and Sunday inserts a week ahead of the sale time frame. For example, in Prince William County, check out the Gainesville Times or the other Times newspapers in various counties. I have over 40 Bloom in ad $10/$40 store coupons to use so far.

Hope this helps--

Foodie (Katie)

Foodie, is there a specific day to check for that ad? Like, could I find it in today's paper or would that have been yesterday? or is that in the Friday/Saturday free paper? I sometimes the Potomac something or other delivered at my house that has inserts in it. But, I don't get a Bloom circular in it, just Giant, Safeway, Shoppers and sometimes Bottom Dollar. I never get a HT circular.

I went in this morning and brought every bit of savings I could! Here's what I did.

four boxes of cheerios @$2.69 each
two boxes of fiber one bars @ 2/$7
four tubes of Crest Pro Health @ 2/7$

I used a few other items I just needed to get up to and a bit over $40, including some closeout cans of Furmano's tomatoes, a jar of salsa, a jar of jam, some canned chiles, and some romaine hearts. This stuff all totaled $16.85.

This triggered the $10 off of $40 coupon
$5 off on "Big Deal" items I listed.
4- $1 mq for a tube of crest from recent inserts
2- $2 off 2 printable mq's for General Mills cereals (smartcoupons)
2- $.40 printable coupons off Fiber One Bars, which doubled to $.80 (smartcoupons)

My total bill started at about $57.68 After breeze deals, it went down to $43.77. Then the $10 and the $5 came off and then my coupons. In the end, I paid $26.17 for a total savings of $31.51.

I'm feeling pretty pleased for a beginner! No problems at all. The printables refused to scan (as seems to always be the case) because of the dark ink, but they entered them by hand and didn't flinch.

Good luck!

Yippee! I got a $10/$40 in today's local paper that I normally chuck without looking inside.

I've been saving all my freebie coupons for a while. I hope I have enough to cover $30 worth of groceries, so the $10 will be all overage!
Now what to spend the $10 on.......

The Big Deal section of the ad shows 14 oz General Mills Cheerios, but the Big Deal flyer I picked up in the store says "General Mills Cereals, 10-14 oz".
Has anyone bought other cereals besides Cheerios and had the instant savings come off? I have some good IP's for Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Lucky Charms.

Thanks! I'm hoping the Pepsi Max shelf has been restocked or will be soon.

Wow, great shopping!

I got the following with freebie coupons:
4 Dr. Pepper 10 - $1.39 ea (insert q)
3 Coke 12-packs - on sale 3/$11 (mycokerewards.com q)
2 Powerade - $1.39 ea (mycokerewards.com q)
2 Idahoan Loaded potatoes - $1.29 each (All You magazine q)
1 Ritz Crackers - $3.79 (mycokerewards.com q)
1 M&M's - on sale for .79 (got this q in the mail fm Random Act of Chocolate Promo)
1 Land O Lakes Cinnamon Suger - $2.49 (got this q in a trade, may have been a Facebook offer)
1 V8 six-pack - on closeout for $1.34 ($1 q fm the V8 website)

I calculated in my head that these items would total around $30
Then I threw in:
3 Hefty Kitchen Trash bags - on closeout for $2.74 ea
1 Lysol Dual Action Wipes - $3.49 - used $1 q fm All You and will send for rebate

Subtotal after Breeze Card savings was $41.81

Then used my $10/$40 and my freebie coupons and when she got to the last two (Powerade and M&M's) we realized I was in the negative, so I told cashier to give those two back to me for later use, and I had to throw something in to bring my total back up. I grabbed a bag of Doritos for $4.29 (ouch!) and my grand total was $1.20, of which $1.17 was tax!!
I realized afterwards that I went into the negative because even though the Coke 12-packs were on sale, the cashier took off the regular price of $5.69 for each one. I wish I had observed her doing this - I would rather have gotten eggs and cheese than Doritos...

Still can't complain about free kitchen trash bags!

Just thought I'd share how I use I like to use the $10 off deals from Bloom...stocking my freezer. I never have coupons on fresh meat and fresh vegetables, so I use this deal to get things I normally don't get a deal on, instead of 20 free of somethings I'll rarely use (like Worcestershire sauce). Rarely is anyone offering $10 off roasts, ground beef or seafood! I like free just as much as the next person. I just use this kind of deal differently. Hope this offers a different perspective on what you can do.

And thank you all for the list(s) of things you did get. Totally helpful.

Totally agree with you. I don't use that much worcestershire sauce myself, but it was giving me overage and helping me get up to $40 so I figure I can get the overage and ad it to the donation box. I do the same as you though, that's why I used the $10 coupon to get the salads. It gets expensive to keep salads in a house with 3 young adult females watching their weight! We eat alot of chicken and turkey, but I get them from the commissary because meat prices are outrageous out in town.

Okay, ran into Bloom with a 2nd 10/40 that I found at the recycling center tonight.

I bought:

6 boxes of Lucky Charms - $3 ea x 6 = $18
3 Yoplait Greek Yogurts - $1 ea = $3
1 Hormel Kids Compleat - $1.99
for the Big Deal = $22.99

Then threw in the following to reach $40:

L'Oreal Hair Color - $9.99 (got a freebie coupon in the mail today)
M&M's - .79 (freebie q that I didn't use earlier)
Powerade - $1.25 (freebie q that I didn't use earlier)
2 Texas Toast Garlic - had raincheck for .99 each = $1.98
Burts Bees makeup remover wipes on clearance for $3.04

I had calculated that after coupons, Big Deal $5 instant savings, and $10/$40 that I would owe about $3 plus tax but my bill came to over $13. I paid, then took receipt to customer service, where two cashiers pored over it trying to figure out why the $5 Big Deal never came off. Fianally, they just gave me $5 cash and I came home.

After looking over my receipt, I see that NONE of my .50 coupons doubled. I had 6 for the Lucky Charms, 2 for the Texas Toast, and one for the Yoplait, so that should have deducted another $4.50 off my bill!

Did anyone else have this experience?
I am wondering if I should take my receipt back to CS tomorrow....
