99% savings...

Purchased:
$150 in commissary giftcards
12 Nabisco snacks
20 Archway Iced Gingerbread cookies
20 Taco Bell Taco Seasoning Packets
19 Nicorette Gum

OOP: $11.65 and a coupon savings of $328.00

My Taco Bell and Nicorette Qs were highly scrutinized and even got sent to the cash office for authorization. After about 15 mins, I got the authorization to use the Qs. The manager on duty had to assist with the Qs being scanned. Each of the Nicorette Qs needed the manager to type in a code. Checking out took at least 30 mins and I was the last customer to exit the building...!

So with all that said, Happy Couponing to all those using these high value overage Qs.

Thanks!!! I don't do big shops at the commi too often, so there was no way I could buy that many items to soak up the overage. Not to mention, I think I'd receive lots of flack from the commi employees if they were to hand over all that cash for the overage...LOL!

I was already getting snide remarks from employees, one saying, "Wow! I hope you need all that, since we're paying YOU to take that out of here." My response, "You get reimbursed from the manufacturers anyway..."

Well we need meat but our freezers are full but getting gift cards would make it so we could get meat still basicly for free. I only have a few of the coupons so hoping I wont have a problem.

They are in the January Coupon Connexion, normally found at the entrance of most commissaries.

my store is out and they said they have been putting an order out for a month but they never get it in. weird? Also, I doubt my commi would let me use this coupon, I'm afraid to even try it. I get scrutinized for every coupon I use.. it's very embarrassing and they make a scene. When I bought the K-Y... the cashier said to the baggers " I NEED THE KY JELLY" loud enough for everyone to hear. She did this with EVERY coupon. Sorry for the rant haha, but they make me feel like i'm stealing.

Panda .. do you go to Hanscom? The same thing happened to me with the KY, loud voice, everyone looking. I was mortified!!! .."You got KY you got KY jelly" haunts me in my sleep. I went shopping on Friday and got a wonderfully coupon friendly cashier. I will definitely look for her in the future.

My commissary had it all in stock and more...
I requested a special order for more, so to give others a chance with the gum still in stock.

Is there anything preventing me from special ordering the nicorette gum, like lets say 1000 boxes of these, going to coupon clippers and buying 1000 of these coupons of 15 off. With an overage of 7.00 ea, them having to give me 7000.00 in gift cards or cash back?

I think that there would be a limit for how many the cash register can handle but if you were to break it into a bunch of transactions (on different days) then it might just work. Though if you find that many of this coupon I hope you share your source with me !

Wow good job! I never thought of using the overage for giftcards! We stocked up on groceries and I have no space now. Hopefully I get more of these coupons and do what you did.

That kind of thing just worries me. I feel like if people continue to do that....the commissary will at some point no longer allow overage!! It just makes me nervous, I wish I could do that..but I just can't! The cashiers are actually really nice, but they just take forever to look over each and every coupon..but I feel like if I did that, someone would say something and I can't handle that. I would go right when it opens so no one was in there . Does anyone else feel like all these overage deals they've had lately are going to backfire... the more deals that go out like this, the more nervous I get... and the most I have ever done in overage is enough KY to buy two gallons of milk I just get sooo nervous!

The fact of the manner is companies will stop this sooner or later if only ONE person got overage on it so it is in your best bet to cash in now. Just IMO> Although with Qs I do notice a pattern, companies release a High value Q which a lot of people take rightful advantage of. Then they release low value Qs and assuming this lower their profits, because the High Value Q always seems to come back. KY jelly is a good example, they release a $3 q a while back then after everyone got that overage , started doing $2 qs and now they are back to $3qs again.

I would think that even the high value q's are still making them money, I mean not a lot of it...but no manu would put out a q knowing they are eating money.. it wouldn't be worth it to them. But my commy is passing this months connexion by hand so unless you go first thing in the morning on certain days, you won't get the connexion. I got mine this morning when I went, but they already don't have anymore of the nic. Which is a total bummer, because I am having a seriously hard time right now. I turn into such a mean person when I quit and my kids don't deserve that, and I figured its free to quit right now.. and I promised myself this would be the year. And now its not free cuz I can't seem to get my hands on any nic! Which is not weird, but kinda is...considering its not like someone came in and took all of the q's for it since they are handing it out by hand.... so I guess everyone is either quitting or every time they pass it out, each person is grabbing it to eat some of their cost. Which is fine, just a bummer. I need to be a little braver and go for the deals, but I live 10 mins away from the commy and to go every time they pass it out to grab a q would make it NOT free since I drive a gas guzzler Anywho, it just makes me nervous, I just feel like if I got a lot of overage, something would happen, and someone would say something, rolling eyes, making comments, and then it would take away from the fact I got so much overage in the first place..like it would ruin it for me. I know, I'm a wimp!
