Walgreen's Dove Deal

I have been reading on several other money saving blogs about the Walgreen's Dove deal. If you purchase 8 bars of soap that are on sale for $0.99 you will get a $10 Register Reward. I can tell you that it DOES work! I just came from Walgreens where I purchased 6 bars of soap at $0.99 and 2 travel deodorants at $1.49/each (-$1.50/2 coupon). I also purchased 2 Dawn dishsoaps that were on sale for $0.99 and used two $0.50 off coupons. I spent less than $10.00 OOP and received a $10.00 Register Reward back! Making all the items FREE!

I would like to do this deal several times as Dove is the only bar soap we use at our house. I hope to roll the Register Rewards into the Huggie's Deal that is coming up on Sunday.

From what I have read on several forums, you will need to purchase $25.00 in select huggie's merchandise and you will receive a $10 Register Reward. Use the new printables that are $5.00 off and $3.00 for a great deal!

My scenario:

3 - Huggies Jumbo Packs @ $10.00 each (-$5.00, -$5.00, -$3.00) = $17.00
I will need a $3.00 filler and then I will use 2 of the $10 Dove Register Rewards making my diapees free!!! Can't beat that :)

Walgreens 3/3/09

I stopped at Wags to take advantage of the Johnson & Johnson deal going on this week. I am going to use most of them in a giftbasket for my sister's baby shower in April. If you buy $25.00 worth of J&J baby items you will get a $10 RR.

4 - J&J washes/lotions @ $3.74
2 - J&J vapor baths @ $5.24 (a little on the expensive side but this is fabulous stuff and Nicholas is sick)
1 - J&J powder @ 3.36
1 - J&J oil @ 3.59

= $32.39
- $2.00/2
- $2.00/2

= $24.39

I also picked up the following items in the same transaction:

1 - Nivea lip balm @ $2.99 (-$1.00 in ad coupon/$1.00 off Manufacturer's Coupon) = $0.99
1- packge of PEEPS (cause they look so yummy) @ $0.39 with in ad coupon.

I paid $29.14 out of pocket including tax and received $10 in RR back.

THEN I did this transaction.

3 - packs of paper plates (which we needed desperately) @ $0.99 with in ad coupon
2 - packs of puff tissue (again Nicholas is sick!) @ $0.99 with in ad coupon
2 - bags of jelly beans @ 2/$1.00 with in ad coupon
2- boxes of candy @ $1.00/each
1 - bag of Funyuns (to go with my sandwich for lunch) @ $1.29
2 - pacakges of peeps @ $0.39 with in ad coupon

My total came to $10.64. I used my $10 RR and ...

So All together I spent $29.78 for $67.00 worth of merchandise. Plus I have the paper plates and tissue that I need as well as a start on my baby shower gifts to my sister!

I did try to do the Ritz Cracker deal - they are 2/$1.99 and there is a $2.00 off 2 manufacturer's coupon but unfortunately even though the coupon says ANY - the cashier would not let me use it.

Well that's it for me today. I hope to hit up CVS later this week for the hershey bar sale because that is the favor for the baby shower and they are 2/$1.00!
