Before sale price or coupons this would have cost $54.72
I was able to get it for $11.98 ( rain check price ice cream coupons)
One thing you will come across as you coupon is the hot promo items being out of stock. I have to say my local stores try hard to keep the hot items in stock, but even I run into empty shelves at the store sometimes. If the item is a sale price and does not have a catalina as part of the promo, you can ask for a rain check.
At Albertsons in November they had a great promo on Sarah Lee Pie, buy one and get one free plus 2 cartons of ice cream for free. This was such a hot promo they sold out …. I simply asked for a rain check and got the sale price yesterday. I did have coupons that would have made this an even better deal…but they expired so I did miss out a bit. But was still happy with my thrifty deal
