I really thought it was going to be a slow week...

EDIT - this rebate HAS cleared for me too. :)

EDIT - it hasn't shown up in my account yet, but folks on HCW are saying their rebate for the Glade Wisp DID go through. :)

...but I think I've done more shopping this week than I did during Black Friday week! My goodness. I don't mind making a bunch of trips when I'm making a profit though, and there are 2 Walgreens that are close enough for me to hit on my lunch break (plus a nice big CVS and a much smaller one as well). So I've been to Walgreens probably every day this week, slowly buying my Reach products. I've been amazed the stores has had tons in stock. This is a great deal, so I figured they'd be flying off the shelves, but apparently this one slipped by some folks.
Walgreens.


I checked out with the Beauty Advisor and she was so wonderful! She actually said that she loved it when her customers used coupons and saved money - you should have seen my jaw hanging open like a fool. :) I then asked her if I could return the Gillette shaving foams I had bought last week (should have bought the gel, the foam wasn't on sale). I explained to her that I'd bought the wrong kind and she told me she'd just do an exchange, even though the sale was last week! Hoorah for Beauty Advisor lady!

Walgreens Transaction one:
  • 2 Reach Ultra Clean flosses $3 each, used two $1 coupons (10/12 RP) and got back $6 RR (only when you buy 2) = $2 profit
  • Glade Wisp Flameless candle - on sale for $3.99, used $3 coupon (11/2 SS) and I'm hoping I'll get back $2 for ESR #36 = (hopefully) $1 profit
  • Total was $5.69

*I'll update if and when this rebate clears

Different store:

  • Glade Wisp Flameless candle - on sale for $3.99, used $3 coupon (11/2 SS) and I'm hoping I'll get back $2 for ESR #36 = (hopefully) $1 profit

I love how you line out your deals, with pics & everything. Love love love it :)

To answer your question, I have a lab/pointer mix. She is big like a lab (tall), but slender like a pointer. And she thinks she is a lap dog...lol.

If you get a second, stop back by & tell me what you think about my new plan. I need some feedback...good, critical feedback.

Great job! Check my blog for the deal on the facial cleansers and get the $3.00 coupon from ROC online.

I hope that glade wisp goes through too...I bought it today. My stores had the shelf tags up that said it was part of the deal, though I didn't actually check to see if those were left over from November or not...
