$50 AFullCup.com Challenge

I was recently challenged by AFullCup.com to see how much I could get with $50 by using coupons from their site.  I actually had a hard time spending that much money!  My first trip into the store I only spent $20, so I had to go back in and get some more!  The deals were really great, and when I paired them with the great coupons from AFullCup.com I saved…..well, watch the video below and find out!


  1. Awesome! I just signed up on AFC and i’m still trying to know my way around. How do you get coupons from thier website? Do they sell them? Thanks for your help! Awesome blog!


  2. Aubrey,

    I have considered it, but their deals are few and far between and I already have a lot on my plate with 5 stores per week! My friend Rachel @ Surviving the Stores usually covers Tom Thumb, so you might check out her site (link in my sidebar).


  3. You have a great website! I also live in DFW, and I was wondering if you have considered posting deals for Tom Thumb weekly like you do Kroger and Albertson’s?


  4. Joy,

    I usually buy 2-4 newspapers per week depending on how good the coupons are going to be. I also watch for “blinkie” coupons and sign up for several manufacturer mailing lists and newsletters which frequently contain coupons.


  5. I am a big fan of your’s and have been for a month or two since finding your site. I am getting better with coupons all the time, but just curious where you get your coupons besides A Full Cup. How many newspapers to do buy, etc….? Thanks!
    Loved the video!

  6. Wow! That is awesome! I didn’t do as good as you did but I still did GREAT! I got $276.36 worth of groceries for only $43.71! That’s a savings of $232.65!!! Thanks so much Stephanie!
