Unlike many people, Valery redeemed on a regular weekend when Shoppers Drug Mart had some deals she could use to maximize her redemption rather than wait for a bonus redemption weekend. Valery did two redemptions to get all of her items from Shoppers Drug Mart

ccmp1974 managed to score Similac formula for just $2.50 a can by combining pink sticker sales with coupons and Similac cheques this week, and got ready for next Easter while shopping!
8x $24.99 Similac – 50% off pink stickers -8x $5 coupons( doctor office) – 8x $5 cheques (mailout’s and trades) =$20 or $2.50 each can! – This ‘stacking’ was allowed as the cheques are a form of payment and not a coupon.
2x $0.05 Easter Cello Bags = $0.10
2x $0.01 Easter Colouring cup – 50% pink sticker = FREE!! (odd 50% off of a penny = free!! LOL!!) & 2x $0.01 Easter Coloring cup =$0.02
I wish I could find pink sticker clearance at $0.01! So what will ccmp1974 do with all those egg colouring kits? They are going to be given to all of the children in her daughters’ school for next Easter.
While getting anything for free is excellent, most SmartLife members hold onto their free product coupons (FPCs) until they can make even more from them – you can use them on items with bonus points, for items with more coupons on it and in some cases towards minimum spend requirements for promotions (not at Shoppers Drug Mart).
Including tax, ErinsMom paid only $6.88 for everything pictured and received 9 Airmiles and coupons for five free Blizzards from Dairy Queen and five free drinks at Orange Julius.
We don’t all have hundreds of coupons to bring down our out of pocket costs at Shoppers Drug Mart, some people just are not into couponing, but you can still maximise your savings by shopping with bonus points as forum member CouponDawn did in this brag.

So, $8.37 – $5= $3.37 each, 20.22 for 6 Plus they had an offer of 200 bonus points WUB2, so 600 for 6 To be honest, I think that Mother hen is ridiculously expensive, but with all the offers it finally came to an acceptable price

Forum member sjw80 combined the Shoppers Drug Mart coupon for 25% off full priced items and a redemption to get a WiiU and Super Mario Bros. U game for just $133.75 including taxes (full price including tax would be $463.28).

Using coupons with sales and other deals is the best way to use coupons. Forum member IRefuseToPayFullPrice did just that when she found Quaker oatmeal on sale for $1 box and used coupons for a free Tropicana Juice when you buy three Quaker products.
It is not very often we get to see brags about saving on fruit and vegetables, but forum member d.ot scored this week when a multibuy deal meant she saved more than the item at Walmart.
Personally, I hate multibuy deals, you are never sure if the price will adjust and you end up buying more than you need, but it worked well for d.ot when a 2/$10 deal on Glade products with the price adjusting at the end meant that her BOGO coupon was rung up at the single item price of $7.34 and not the $5 adjusted price. So d.ot used this overage towards taxes and other purchases and spent only $1.22 for her purchase (the apples alone were $1.49)
