Walgreens – Easiest RR’s I’ve Ever Gotten

So I went to Walgreens to buy some Aussie Products… Last week 11/15-11/21 they had the entire Aussie collection on sale for $2.99 a bottle…

Doesn’t sound like the greatest deal huh?

Well I has $1 off coupons to make them $1.99 each and then I got 1 $2 RR for every bottle I bought (Did separate transactions to make sure I got all of them!)…

Which is like getting the bottles for free…

Now, I love Aussie’s 3 Minute Miracle, so I would gladly pay $1.99 for them… And now I have $6 to spend at Walgreens… No clue what I am going to get!

Cleaning Supplies

Needed to clean the bathroom, so I decided to hit up walmart for some cleaning supplies… Also got a lot of travel size items for free, or nearly free, with coupons I wanted to make sure i used before they expired…

Total before coupons was just over $70 and after was $35… Used $20 on a gift card and paid the rest OOP

Walmart isn’t the place to go for freebies really… Yea you can score in the travel section sometimes, but it is the best store to go to if you want reasonably low prices on a lot of items you need and don’t want to spend all your time ‘chasing’ deals…

Walgreens @ 12:15am

Went back to Walgreens later Saturday night, or Sunday morning rather, because I am sick of missing all the good deals…

I got 7 boxes of puffs for $.89 each minus a $.25 coupon for a total of $.64 + tax per box! YAY!!!

The cough drops were $1 but were advertised to print $1 RR making them free… Since the computers hadn’t loaded all the deals the manager just gave me the 7 I had picked up for free… No OOP or tax!!!!

The Breathe Right strips were $5.99 each minus a Walgreens coupon for $3 off and I had two $1 off one coupons making them $1.99

Walgreens Cover Girl Adventure

So I went to Walgreens to pick up some deals I had read about online… I was pretty bummed when I got there and they had sold out of everything I had wanted to buy…

I passed by the make up area and noticed about a half dozen Cover Girl foundations on clearance, $4.59 down from ~$10.

I had seven coupons for ‘buy a foundation get a face product for free’ and also had seven $2.50 off when you buy 2 CG products.

So I grabbed 7 clearance foundations and 7 blushes @$7.99 each…. After some trial and error the cashier was able to ring it all!

Ended up with 14 CG products for ~$14 + tax

Also, since it was Saturday I was able to get christmas ornaments 2 @ 5.99 buy using my $11 in RR and a $5 off $25 coupon in that weeks ad…

Had to buy gum for filler items but it was on clearance so no big deal…

OOP was roughly $16+ tax

P.s. : I hate tax!

I’m so excited!

So today Andrew had part of his root canal… And got 2 prescriptions he had to fill… Took one to Shopko for $20 gift card… Took the other to Smiths for $20 credit on my Kroger card…

Apparently Shopko will price match a competitors ad!! So after work I stopped in and got the Leapster Tag Reading system (kids 4-8) which they were selling for $59.99

I showed the lady at customer service the ToysRUs toy booklet where it was priced at 39.99 and gave her a Target coupon for $10 off…after talking with the manager they agreed to drop the price to 29.99

Leapster has a few coupons on their website… One is for $10 off the leapster tag system… $19.99 -$20.00 gift card!!!

Free Leapster… I also picked up a book to go with (Spongebob… Clearanced for $6.75)…. They also had a coupon for $3.00 off any book soooo I think total with Tax was $6.50!!!!

Then I went to Target… Bought Violet the purple puppy for Andrew’s niece Bailyn whose still < 12 months… She was $14.99 with a coupon for $5.00 off made her $9.99… GREAT deal! GC made the out of pocket cost $0.00 aka FREE!

Bought the lego/fisher price kit for $4.99 but had a $5.00 off coupon = FREE… Should be good for one of Andrew’s nephews… I’m going to print more coupons and buy more… Possibly for Toys4Tots…

Then the leapster…. 2 x $10.00 off coupons made it $19.98 and with all the GC’s I have it was basically the Same deal… However I need to go back and have them price match the book I bought to go with, since I forgot that! So $7 back on my GC! Nice!

My first RR qualifying trip to Walgreens AND glade holiday sale at Target

Started at Walgreens…

Got a 6oz bottle of Lubriderm for $3.79 minus a $1 off from Walgreens and $2 off from the manufacturer (online print)… $.79 final price… Nice!

2 Theraflu daytime pills… $3.24 each minus $2 off from Walgreens and $2 off from the Manu… $1.52 money maker… Woot!!

Benydryl on clearance for $4.74 minus the Manu coupon for $1 off…

3 Almay products for $22.97 with $8 off from walgreens and a $5.00 register reward (RR) for my next trip…

Total at Walgreens was $20.22 and my reciept says I saved 31.25 plus I got the $5 RR and a $10 off $25 at fashion bug…

Then I went to Walmart… Took the benydryl and 2 almay products back and they put $22.03 on my gift card… Not my intention to make money like that, but…. It happened…

Then to Target to deal with an uber monster of a cashier… She was pissy because I had so many coupons but I made her suck it up…

I did another Degree deal… So the deodorant and body spray combo was $.58+tax

5 glade candle holders @2.50 each minus $2 each in Manu coupons… $2.50 plus a $5 gift card for free…

10 candle refills @ $2.50… I don’t think she rang the coupons right (think roughly $16 off) and 1 glade scented oil refill @ $2.50($1 off with a b1g1- any plug in warmer, so I chose the $2.99 on with a night light!!) and 4 glade candles @2.50 each ($3 off 4)… So 15 items meant $15 in gift cards…

Then I got 3 lasting impressions set-ups for $5.99 each… I had a $3 off and $2 off to stack but the cashier would not let me so I took them back promptly after I finished my purchases… $19.16 back on a gift card…

Summary: my target receipt says it charged my CC $34.04 for 27 items… I got $20 in gift cards and when I returned the 3 lasting impressions set-ups that made it $14.88 for 24 items and 39.16 on gift cards…

Out of pocket (oop): $34.04 + $20.22= $64.26

Walmart GC: +22.03
Target GC: +$39.16
RR: $5.00

Wow!!! Made roughly $2 and got everything you see in the picture below…

Think I am going to save Target money for a Wii or a toaster… And Walmart money for a set of Paula Dean cookware… YAY

Wednesday’s Shopping Adventure

Soooo I got my grocery store’s weekly Ads so of course I had to take advantage of the deals…

Dick’s grocery store is basically the biggest rip off in the state… The only thing they do right is banana nut cake… But this week they had a typo in their mailer for Ban deodorant… What they wrote was that there was a buy 1 get 1 sale and that the price of a deodorant was $.98 each… What they meant was that AFTER the B1G1 they were $.98…. But I made them hold to their advertised price of buy 1 at the $.98 price get one free and then used a $.40 off… So 2 for $.58…. Not bad… While I was there I picked up 3 Capri Sun boxes for $5.00 which is pretty much the best price you’ll find them for…

Then I headed to Smiths to pick up some of their loss leaders… Let’s see… Picked up 10 bottles of Gatorade for the boy at $.49 each… Got free playtrx gloves, tooth paste for $.25, 3 bottles of Tylenol for $1.50 each… A stouffer’s lasagna for $1.49… 4 boxes of cookies for $1.00 total… 2 bottles of All detergent for $1.99 each… So many good deals… Got out of the store with 31 items and spent $29 including tax… Also got 5 cents off at their gas station… Not sure if it’s really a good deal but I’ll check it out next time I am in the area…

Total: 36 items for $35? Not bad!!!
