Brag of the Week #2: 78% off at PetSmart

As I've explained in earlier posts, my target price for high-end dog food is about $1 per lb.  In this shopping trip, I managed to pay only about half of that, so I'm a happy, er, puppy.  It's very easy to save money on high quality pet food, because it can be stockpiled so easily and doesn't go bad. The trick is to strike and buy when the opportunity arises, long before you run out of food.

My original total for this haul was $32.78 excluding tax.  I ended up paying $7.19 plus $2.25 in tax (78% savings). This shopping trip was a success mostly because of this deal:
  • I purchased two 5.5 lb. bags of Ultramix adult dog food for $13.99 each = $27.98.
    I used this PetSmart store BOGO coupon for the one bag and  this $5 manufacturer's coupon for the other.  I have never had a problem stacking store and manufacturer's coups at PetSmart.  They have truly wonderful cashiers.
    Total price for the two 5.5 lb. bags: $8.99
  • I also had 2 of these Cesar Canine Bistro buy-two-get-one free coupons.  I bought six at $0.80 cents each, and saved $1.60 with the 2 coups.
    Total price: $3.20 
  • Additionally, I had a $5 off $25 coupon reward that you receive for reaching a threshold (I think it's $100) on your PetPerks account.  I actually gave that to the cashier first, before any other coupons reduced my total.
Got brag?  Please, I love love love to post DailyCheapskate readers' frugal successes. Send it to me here.
