Quaker Oatmeal for $.41 Each

Wow! I scored 5 boxes of Quaker oatmeal today for $2.06! I mentioned earlier that I didn't get to look through my newspaper inserts until Wednesday, and I stumbled upon a great Quaker deal at Kmart. It's not too late for you to get it too.

This week, if you buy participating Quaker items at Kmart, you get them for $2.00 each. Included are some cereal (limited), instant oatmeal, quick oats canister, oatmeal breakfast cookies (not the To-Go bars), and granola bars. There might be more. That's just what I noticed in the store.

When you buy 5 of these items, you get an instant $3 off at checkout. Here's how my transaction went:

Bought 5 Quaker Oatmeals - $10.00
-$3.00 instant savings at checkout (for buying 5)
-$1.00 off printable coupon (Firefox link HERE)
-$1.00 off x 2 coupon from 2/7 RedPlum insert
-$1.00 off 2 coupon from inside another package
-$.94 Shop Your Way Rewards (Kmart's rewards card - info HERE)
Final Price: $2.06 ($.41 each)
Savings: $7.94 (79%)

I only had one of the printable coupons. The deal would be even better with multiple copies of the printable!

Note to my local readers: The St. Clairsville Kmart is pretty much out of the oatmeal. They have a great stock of granola bars though!
