A few times a year JCPenney sends out a $10 off a $10 purchase. It is really a pretty decent coupon. However, it is a minimum of a $10 (without taxes) purchase - so it can be ever so slightly tricky. You must spend a minimum of $.70 (In Indiana)to cover the taxes.
Now, if you NEED something prior to the coupon coming, I don't mind "applying" that towards a bigger purchase. If I can't think of something we need, my goal is to find something that I can use, and spend as little money as possible. 2 times ago when the coupon came, I used it to get a birthday gift for someone - and spend about $5.
At Christmas the coupon came and I got a Christmas ornament. I spent about $1.10 and thought I had done pretty well. That was until YESTERDAY.
The coupon came and I couldn't think of anything I needed, so I went in the store and set out my goal to spend as little money as possible.
Without all the details - suffice it to say I beat my own record in to the ground.
I got the following:
A maternity shirt on clearance - original price - $40. Clearance price - $4.97 A maternity sweater on clearance - original price - $36.00. Clearance price - $2.97 2 pairs of newborn pants for Miles - original price - $17/pair. Clearance - 2.99
When all was said and done - I left the store with these items for a total of.....drum roll please.......like $.80 or $.90.
Victory to the bargain hunters! I am eager for my next Penny's coupon.
