Walgreens $10/$30

>> May 30, 2008

Today there is a special $10 off $30 purchase coupon good at walgreens available.. today only. I "luckily" still had one coupon good for a free one touch meter, which allowed me to make my total higher...so here is my order
One touch mini meter - 14.99 coupon
2 walgreens ultra AA batteries (B1G1)
Walgreens water filter (rebate item for june)
6 chex mix - (5) 1.00 coupons
-$10 coupon
Total 2.36 on a gift card
I will get back 7.59 for the water filter on my rebate next month. :)



1 Playskool - 3.00 coupon
2 wipes - 1.00 coupons
1 nail clipper - 1.00 coupon
3 trident gums (3.57 total fillers)
- 3/15
-3/10 cvs
- 3.79 ecb
Total 4.84 on a gift card
Earned $5 ECB for playskool
Just to sum up my playskool deals this week: 3 Playskool Mega pack diapers + 4 wipes=

Total cost $ 15.12 with tax (ecbs + gift card $ used) - $10 (ECBS earned) = $5.12 (including tax) Net cost for 3 "mega" packs and 4 wipes... not bad. ** this calculation factors out the tums (money maker) and candy/gum fillers from my 3 orders.**

And I have visual proof of the crazy companies quietly "raising prices." I have 2 MEGA packs with 40 size 4 diapers and `1 MEGA pack with 46 size 4 diapers. I guess the economy swallowed up 6 diapers per pack. You can tell in my picture that one pack is slightly larger... When I was picking up the 3rd pack today, I was looking for the 46 count pack and confused myself when I didn't see it in the store, because I "swore" that I had just purchased size 5 diapers with 46 in a pack. I am happy to say I am not crazy... but unhappy to realize why.

Twice as Nice :)

>> May 23, 2008

Quinn broke his bouncy... I guess we used the heck out of it. So I hit a Twice as Nice to see what they had to replace it.
I found a total deal, A newborn to toddler rocker by fisher price. It rocks vs. bounces, but the weight limit is 40 lbs vs. 25 (Quinn is at about 22 lbs right now), so its much more practical for long term use. Plus it still vibrates, which seems to help Quinnie nap longer. I had been looking at buying a new one of these as a replacement since Quinn was approaching the weight limit anyway, this is $45 + tax at BRU. The exact same one!!
Twice As Nice Price = $25 (no tax when you use store credit). I paid with my store credit so $O oop :)
And great news, fisher price is sending me a label to ship the bouncy back and they are sending me a refund check (~$33) even though it was shower gift. :) Yeah!!

>> May 16, 2008

Ok. So here are my deals from this week...
1 CVS Bottle Liners
1 CVS Allergy
3 Colgate TB- 1.00 coupons
3 Aqua Fresh TP -1.00 coupons
2 Trident Gum (fillers)
- 3/10 cvs brand
-3/15 coupon
-21.47 ECB
1.87 Total on a gift card.
Earned in $ 24.73 ECBs back.
So made more back then I spent and I got a pack of bottle liners

I also found Hawaiian tropic lip stuff at 2 different stores, so I managed to purchase it on my card and my mom's.. Buy 2 at 1.99 each. and Earn $10 ECB, so a nice little money maker. Its too bad, the limit was 1. Oh and I totally screwed it up twice. First buying the wrong brand, and then buying it on my card, after I had already done the deal. But I returned them and figured it out. :)
Bed Head Hair Dryer (75% off)
Pert Plus - 1.00
- 6 RR
Total 13.14 on a gift card
Plus 2.75 back on the gift for the rebate

Disney Funds update

>> May 13, 2008

I am adding $50 in American Express gift cards from WAG...
$250 SWA
$530 Cash
$50 American Express
$123 Disney Rewards
$953 Total


2 hours on Monday.

My mom was able to come watch Quinnie for 2 hours yesterday and I managed to get quite a few things done.
4 Lawrys - .50/1 (3 doubled, 1 not)
4 York Peppermint Patties - .55/1 (3 doubled, 1 not)
Total $4.95 OOP

2 Shell $25 Visa Gift Cards
3 V8 (on sale this week for 2.5)
3 walgreens soap (.25 each with WAG coupon, but I had trouble with this)
-$59 in RR
Total $0.19 on a gift card.
I made a mistake here, I miscalculated how much I had for fillers, I thought for some reason my coupons equaled $58, so I was going for cheapie .25 soaps, but the register wouldn't take the WAG coupon... which in the end I guess was good, because I would have gone negative since my three soaps at full price were $1.59 instead of the sale .75. I just wish I had calculated it better and bought a more useful filler with my extra $1.50.. oh well soap for the donate pile and I should be thankful for no hassles using a 7 RR.

Next Walgreens
2 $25 American Express Gift cards (each with a 3.95 activation fee)
6 disposable forks/spoons (on sale for 2/$1)
- $60 in RR
Total 1.10 on a gift card

Ok now I am down to only $9 in RR from last week, which is a relief because I hate holding them and waiting to use them. They expire pretty fast. And now I have more funds for our vacation and I will submit for the $25 promo through american express, so while I spent $7.90 in activation fees for the american express gift cards, I will get a $25 gift card to use, so I am still coming out ahead on that one. :)

99 cent only
2 Tropicana OJ
2 Dole Salads
3 jello 100 calories pudding packs
1 mushroom
2 packs of carrots
1 cucumber pack
Total $10.89

I saw someone checking out with like 10 half gallons of horizon organic milk.. I guess they cleaned them out, that would be a great find! Oh well I was pretty happy with what I did find :)

2 CVS Bottle Liners
1 CVS Allergy meds
-2/10 cvs
- 8 ECB
Total $5.80 on a gift card
Earned $3.79 in ECB
(not the best plan but we were totally out of 8 oz bottle liners, I need to come up with a few good plans to get more this week, I wish they were on sale but oh well, I hope to stock up on enough to get Quinn through his formula faze).



>> May 10, 2008

Ok I did go back out to check a couple stores, while I was getting gas and picking up Rx's this morning.. and I managed to do 3 more deals. Basically I did toothpaste, mr clean wipes, deodorant, covergirl and cottonelle wipes...
Total on a GC = $23.84
Earned $50 in RR (covergirl gave me grief and only earned $10, but the OOP was like $1.. so oh well, still make money).
I still have $108 in RR to use. I was able to reload my WAG card several times this week $10 at a time to keep the deal going and I also bought the $50 Shell card yesterday.
So overall pretty good, I need to decide what I am doing, I did use my rebate gift card a bit, so I need to make sure I get the rebate times for the month to build it back up.
I also forgot to get more of the freebie bodywash using my free coupon, I might try and grab some more tonight when we head out to Peter's parents house for dinner.. I haven't checked those walgreens out yet anyway... MAYBE there are some toothpastes still out there :)

I might do the deal one more time.. so I have 6 bottles.. I don't have any of this type of lotion in my stockpile.. so 6 bottles would be good :)
