That's a lotta junk food!

Walgreens
1st Transaction
  • 4 Special K bars $10, used three $1 coupons = $7
  • 6 Pop Tarts $10, used two $1 off 2 coupons (8/3 RP) = $8
  • Total was $17, used up gift card for $6.40 and paid rest with cash
  • Got back $10 RR ($5 for Special K and $5 for Pop Tarts) and will submit for $10 rebate (8/3 RP) = $3 profit

2nd Transaction - different store

  • 4 Nutri Grain bars $10, used two $1 off 2 coupons (8/3 RP) = $8
  • 5 Rice Krispie treats (I really wish they would have had just ONE more box, then I could have used another coupon) $10, used two $1 off 2 coupon (8/3 RP) = $8
  • 1 Pop Tart $2
  • Total was $18.70
  • Got back $10 RR and will submit for $10 rebate (8/3 RP) = $1.30 profit

ShopRite

  • 4 Ken's dressings $4, used two $1 off 2 coupons (8/3 SS) = $2
  • At another store, 4 more dressings plus tortillas = $3.50

RiteAid

  • I FINALLY found a store that has Olay face wash in stock. I bought a wash on Sunday for $7.49 and it didn't qualify for the rebate. This one should - got my fingers crossed! :)

CVS

  • CVS trial size hand sanitizer $0.99, used $2 CVS skincare coupon = $1.01 profit
  • 3 bags CVS popcorn $1.19 each
  • 10 J&J bath buddies $0.99 each, used $1 coupons = FREE

how do you have so many of those J&J coupons still? I printed out the max number (I think it was 4) and I've been out for weeks.

Melissa,
I received tons of these coupons from other hounds on the message boards. :)

Frugalsuz: You are soooo lucky!! My Walgreens would not print $10 in RR for the 10 products of Kellogg's and I even did the exact same transaction as you. I guess our registers were programmed to only do the one RR per purchase!! Rats!

Wooo WHoooo!! That's what I call some POWER hounding girl! Great job.

Lillie,
That stinks that your RR's didn't print. Were they able to override that or give you a gift card or something in the store to make up for it? If not, it might be worth calling corporate about.
