Special K Cereal for pennies!

By the time you read this, it will probably be too late to use this match-up.  But I wanted to use it as an example of the aforementioned stacking of "layers" of savings.

County Market currently has full-sized boxes of Special K cereal for $0.99 cents apiece, when you buy three (if you have the free County Market card).

From those coupons provided online, I'd printed a Manufacturer Coupon for $1.00 off of 2 Special K cereals.

I was pleasantly surprised that Special K cereal is also an Ibotta offer!  If  you don't have Ibotta, please get the app through my link. The Ibotta rebate is $0.45 per Special K cereal that you buy.

So, let's recap:

Special K cereal = $0.99 when you buy three. That's $2.97 total.
Manufacturer Coupon = $1.00, making the total $1.97.
Ibotta rebate = $0.45 x 3 cereals. That's a rebate of $1.35, bringing the net cost down to 62 cents!

That makes the grand net price 21 CENTS per Special K cereal!

I need to finish my blog series, explaining how to shop for less.
