Dannon Yoghurt Catalina Deal at Giant

We're not sure if this deal is valid at other stores, but at my Giant, the Catalina recently machine printed a note that said:

"Buy any TWO (2) Dannon Quarts and a 16 oz. container of fresh strawberries between 05/18/09 and 06/14/09, and receive a coupon for $3.00 off your next shopping trip" (Light'n'Fit quarts do not apply.)

At first glance, you think, "Meh." But wait! There were(/are?) several coupon dispensers throughout Giant (in really random places at in the nonperishable grocery aisles, not in dairy!) for $0.75/2 Dannon Quarts, and the first digit on these was a 5 - meaning that they'll double automatically at checkout since Giant's policy is to automatically double coupons under $0.99.

SO, how does this hash out? Wait until Dannon quarts or strawberries are on sale (for strawberries, this is every other week or every couple of weeks).

Here's a sample scenario:

2 x $2.99 Quarts of Dannon (retail price)
1 x $1.66 1 lb. Strawberries (common sale price)
Subtotal: $7.64
Use $0.75/2 coupon, doubled to $1.50
Post coupon subtotal: $6.14

Receive Catalina for $3 back.

'Net' = $3.14 for two quarts of yoghurt and a pound of strawberries, when one quart of yoghurt is $2.99 retail. Nice! We'll alert you if some Giant sale prices make for a similar deal. In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for those coupons! :)
