And the PS3 challenge has come to an end - and after an awesome start it finished poorly... I think it was still great, though! Yesterday bought some Kikkoman products for a stir fry dinner we'll have tomorrow night and paid $1.39 for $3.39 (savings of 59%). That left me with $11.44 in GC.
Today bought lots of Skinny Cow and Snackwells (6 boxes of Skinny Cow and 3 boxes of Snackwells) along with mac and cheese, floss, and Uncle Ben's Rice at total of $39.33 for $11.97. So, I had to pitch in 53 cents.
The $75 gift card from the PS3 purchased $268.17 worth of merchandise and then I had to throw in 53 cents at the end, which makes sense, since the PS3 only cost $298 something so I didn't really have to hit $300 exactly.
Overall savings of 70%. I was going for 75% but Smart Ones frozen meals I bought earlier this week lowered my percentage - but they were a good purchase for my work lunches. I only saved 40% on that day of shopping - which was the lowest percentage of savings for this challenge.
So, in the grand scheme of things - it ends up that we paid about $32 for the PS3 :)
On a side note - went to Walmart this week for some awesome savings...
4 cans of sweet potatoes and 4 packages of fried rice stir fry mix for a total of 12 cents... hehehe $6.88 was the value of the 8 items (98% savings).
