20 cans of Pringles $.38 each = $7.60
I got extremely lucky with this deal as I should have only been able to get 10 cans. Regular pringles are on sale this week at CVS for $.88 a can. I had 5 $1/2 MC's for regular and 5 $1/2 MC's for fat free. The CVS I went to on Los Alamos only had fat free ones and when I asked a lady if there were any more regular ones in the back she said no, but she would discount the fat free ones from $2.99 to the $.88 for me. Great, because I wasn't going to be able to use the fat free MC's for the sale!! So I got 8 fat free ones there. I decided to cut across and take HW 79 home and there was a CVS right before the turn to go home. We ran in there and they are still fully stocked. I got 12 cans of regular Pringles. I used 5 of the coupons and then asked the cashier if she thought I could use my last fat free one for regular. She took it and let me use it.

Now I know what you are thinking...Amber, what do you need 20 cans of Pringles for? Well, it's that whole stocking up idea. My kids love Pringles. When we go to Winco they get to pick out one can a piece if they are $1. If they are any more than that they don't get them on that trip. So why not hide these in the closet for their special treat for months to come? Why not pay $.38 a can instead of the normal $1.00. These are $1.50 a can at Wal-Mart right now and the CVS regular price is $1.79.
It's always so funny the looks you will get from people when you do these stocking up sales. There were two guys behind me and they said, wow you guys must really like Pringles. I told them, yes for $.38 a can we LOVE them. They said what???, how do you do that? I told them about the deal and they were wishing they had my coupons. Always fun to impress :)
