Walgreens 1/18/09

I was hungry and craving a cheeseburger from Wendy's this afternoon. So on my way I stopped at walgreens. I did the Unilever deal.

4 Ragu pasta sauces @ $1.99 each (used $0.50 off 2 and a $0.75 off 2 coupons)
2 Jiffy peanut butters @ $1.99 each (used a $0.75 off 2 coupon)
2 Dove Hair care products @ 2/$7.00 (had 2 $1.50 off Dove haircare coupons)

I spent $14.something (I can't find my receipt) out of pocket and received a $10 register reward back.

I went through the line again and got

1 package of bounty on sale for $6.99 ($0.25 off coupon)
2 packages of Dixie napkins @ $1.99 ($1.00 off coupon in today's paper x 2)
2 packages of Dixie paper plates on sale for $1.99 each ($1.00 off coupon x 2)

I used my $10 register reward to pay for it and spent $1.75 out of pocket. I believe the bounty was 6 rolls. So all in all not a bad day. I am good on pasta sauce and peanut butter for a while!

Hopefully I can get the little monster down for a nap so I can hit Jewel and CVS later! HOpe you are having a GREAT sunday!


If you haven't heard of Swagbucks my suggestion is you go here and sign up. What is swagbucks? It is a search engine. Works pretty much the same as google except that everytime you search for something you can earn "swagbucks" or points. You can trade these swagbucks in for giftcards. I joined a few weeks ago and just traded my swagbucks in for a Target gift card. They also had Barnes & Noble, Macy's and Starbucks that I can remember off the top of my head. Pretty cool concept for something we do every single day! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a comment.

Super Sunday Savings Spree!

Hi everyone! Happy New Year. So one of my new years resolutions is to get out of credit card debit this year and start saving more money.

I started couponing last year and now I am going to become more serious about it. I hope to use this blog as an opportunity to share deals with you and also keep track of my savings/earnings.

Today was an awesome day for me. That's why I'm calling it the Super Sunday Savings Spree.
It started out at Walgreens.

I had 2 items that I needed to return which gave me about $20 back in cash. I also had $10 in my wallet. So $30 total which I was going to use for both Walgreens and CVS. This is how I did.


4 Fructis items @ $2.99 [-$2.00 ESQ and $1.00 MQ = -$0.04]
Electrasol Geltabs @3.49 [-$2.50 MQ and $1.50 ESR = -$0.51 after rebate]
1 Sunday paper

My total OOP was $4.02! Not bad. Plus I will get back $1.50!

At CVS I did 3 transactions.

CVS #1:
4 Colgate toothpastes @ 2/$5.00 [-$1.50 PQ/Get $4.00 in ECBs]
1 Pamolive Dish Soap @ $0.97 [-$0.25 MQ]
1 Cottonelle 20 pack @ $12.97 [-$1.00 MQ/Get $4.00 in ECBs]
1 Ziploc Baggie Twic pack @$5.99 [-$1.00 MQ/Get $2.00 in ECBs]

I also used a $5.00 off $25.00 that came in my email for this weekend only. $2.50 in ECBS for fall spending and $5.00 in ECBs that I had from a previous purchase.

My total was $10.62 and I got back $10.00 in ECBS!

CVS #2
2 Infant's Motrin @ 2/$11.00 [-$2.50 MQ]
1 package of Bandaids @ $3.00
1 Tylenol Cold @ $6.00 [-$1.00 MQ]
1 Freedom Lite Monitor @ $9.99 [-$9.99 MQ]

I also used a $5/$25.00 coupon, $2.00 off pain reliever CVS coupon, and my $10.00 in ECBs from above.

My total ended up $0.27 negative so I threw in a package of tic tacs @ $0.99 and my total came to $0.73. I got $10 in ECBS for the motrin/band aids/tylenol.

CVS #3

3 packs of pepsi @ 3/$10.00 [-$1.00 MQ]
1 Johnson & Johnson's baby wash @ $2.99 [-$1.00 MQ]

I used my $10 ECB from transaction #2 and spent $1.24 OOP.

So in total I only spent a little over $16.00 OOP at Walgreens and CVS!

Now, if you have a Jewel near you -- they have a great deal going on. Buy $30 worth of participating merchandise and receive $15.00 on your next order.

I did 3 transactions at Jewel today.

8 Roll pack of Bounty $10.00 (-$0.25)
Trix @ $2.00 (-$1.00)
2 - Yoplait Kids @ $2.50/each (-$1.50/each)
2- Cheerios @ $2.00/each (-$1.00)
2 - Betty Crocker Brownie Mix @ $1.67 (-$1.00)
2- Patene Products @ $3.33/each (-$3.00)

My total OOP: $23.39 and I received $15.00 back

3 packages of Pampers @ $10.00 (-$4.00 in coupons)

I used my $15.00 from transaction #1 to pay for the diapers and spent $13.48 out of pocket. Which is not bad for 3 packages of size 5 pampers! I also received back the $15.00 in coupons and an extra $5.00 good on your next baby product purchase.

2 Packages of prepackaged salad @ 2/$5.00 (they were also running a special on these that if you buy 2 you get up to 2 lbs of Bananas free so I got 2 lbs exactly!)
1 package of baby carrots @ 1.50
1 Green Peper @ $0.77
1 cucumber @ $0.79
1 Johnson's Baby Vapor Bath (to use the $5.00 coupon good on next baby purchase) @ $5.49 (-$1.00 MQ)
1 Package of Jewel Croutons @ $1.00

I used the $5.00 baby coupon and a $5.00 jewel coupon and paid $4.03 OOP. I have $10.00 left to roll sometime this week when they get the Downy back in stock! I am going to be taking advantage of this offer as much as possible. It is good until 1/18!!

The great news too is I can use the products from Jewel transaction #1 and #2 to fufill my $50 requirement to get the $120 worth of Proctor and Gamble coupons. I already filled out my form and will be sending that in tomorrow morning!

Not a bad shopping day! Hope you all had a great Super Sunday!
