We are getting to the end of my Mega Savings week. I didn't get a chance to write last night--went to get my nails done and didn't get home til late. Plus it's so darn cold, that when I get home, it takes my fingers a while to unfreeze! Good 'ole Nebraska weather!
OK, so what about my savings? Well, starting with Wednesday, I dropped my free Redbox movie from Tuesday in the Redbox before work. I tried the Wednesday code to see if I could get another free movie, but it didn't work. Darn. At lunch time I went to Walgreens (of course!) and got two coffee mate creamers (french vanilla--yum!) that were on sale for $2.49 BOGO (that's Buy one/get one free--yes, there's even special lingo attached to this obsession of mine!). I had a MC (manufacturer's coupon) for $1.50 on 1. I also got some AXE conditioner (for Randy) which was $5.99. There's a rebate for $5.99 available through Walgreen's easy saver catalog this month so I'll get that back. I then used my free coupon for Irish Spring body wash which was a $4.49 value. I used $3.00 in Register Rewards to pay and gave them $2.71 out of pocket. I will still get $5.99 back from my rebate. Oh yes, and I got another coupon for a free Irish Spring body wash! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! I love Walgreens!
OK, after work I went to get my nails done and then had to pick up a few things at Wal-Mart. I did not see any great deals at Wal-Mart. I know they will match prices on things but I'm not that organized yet! Then on the way home I stopped at HyVee to see if I could get the free movie code to work and it did. So I got my free movie too! Well, unfortunately it was now 7:00 and I didn't have time to go home and cook up the chicken I had marinating so I treated Randy to some Popeye's chicken--it's a rarity, so...
Now onto Thursday. I had to make some treats for work so I went in a little later today. I stopped at HyVee to take my movie back and then veered off at Walgreen's by our house. I picked up two more creamers to have at work. Unfortunately my coupon didn't print right so my $1.50 coupon didn't work, but I had another $.75 coupon. Ok, so it wasn't $.50 each, it was $.75. Still a good deal. I also picked up another package of Advil PM and for $4.49, got the $2.00 RR and used the $2.00 coupon off the box. $.49--yes! Used $3.00 in RR rewards. Then gave them $3.29 and got $2.00 in RR back. $6.98 worth of product for $1.29. Remember, I'm still supposed to pay the tax.
At noon today I went to Walgreens again (this is just too much fun!). I bought another Advil PM--same deal as before, got my free Irish Spring body wash--that makes 4 total. Divide that between the $4.49 for the original one and that's $1.12+tax per Irish Spring body wash. I also got a Walgreens brand Headache medicine (their equivalent to Excedrine) for $2.99 (this is another ES deal for a rebate of the full price.) Finally, I picked up a Gillette Fusion Gamer razor which was on sale for $8.99. I had a $4.00 MC and the sign said you'd get back $6.00 in RR. How can I pass that up? When I went to pay, I used my $2.00 RR from this morning, and when it was all done, the machine only kicked out a $4.00 RR. I asked the clerk why when the sign said $6.00 in RR. She went and looked and then called the manager over. He said it was their mistake, but the sign was a month old. Since it was the store's mistake, he gave me the other $2.00 in cash! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! I can't stand it! I'm rolling with glee! Ha! Ha! $21.16 worth of product for .66 cents after coupons, rebates, RR, etc.
My last report is for super Target. I went tonight to see if they had any good meat on sale to use my $2.00 coupons on. Unfortunately, they didn't have the chuck roast at $1.99 like someone said their Target had. But I found some round steak (I can still make swiss steak or chicken fried steak with it!) and got two of them. They were $3.00 apiece so they only cost me about $1.00 each. I also got a head of cabbage for $1.69--had a coupon for $1.00 off. I got 4 cans of Cre4am of chicken soup for $.54 apiece and had a coupon for $1.00/2. And I got two Mott's Applesauce individual service cups 6pak for $1.69 each and had a $1.00 off coupon for each as well as a MC for $.55 off for each. I paid only $.14+tax for each. Awesome! Oh yes, and I had a $5.00 Target gift card that I got in the mail from something. I used $3.66 from the card--no out of pocket!
I know this is probably boring you, but I'm loving it! I'll try to think of some way to include a picture one of these days!
