I was here first, this is my piece of dirt...

...your rambling don't rattle me...Song of the Day - Montgomery Gentry - What Do Ya Think About That
UPDATE - the Irish Spring RR is no longer rolling. :( It was good while it lasted!
I bought all of these goodies over the past two days...
CVS
  • 2 Garnier Nutritioniste face lotions $12 each, used two $1 coupons (3/8 RP) and got back $10 EB ($5 EB WYB $10 worth, limit 2) = $5 each
  • Used $2.99 EB, $2.99 EB, $15.98 EB, total was $0.18

Rinse and repeat on DBF's card (different store) - one package of Garnier I picked up was empty! Sneaky, sneaky shoplifters

  • 2 Garnier Nutritioniste face lotions $12 each, used two $1 coupons (3/8 RP) and got back $10 EB ($5 EB WYB $10 worth, limit 2) = $5 each
  • Used $10 EB, $4.99 EB, $4.99 EB, $1 EB and $1 EB, total was $0.16

I don't know how it happened, but all of a sudden I am super low on EB's on both cards! Ugh, I hate building them back up.

Walgreens

  • 4 cases Diet Coke $13 or $3.25 each, used three $1 coupons and got back $3 RR for buying four = $1.75 each
  • Used $10 RR, total was $0.91

Store 2 - such problems here!

  • 4 cases Diet Coke $13 or $3.25 each, got back $3 RR for buying four = $2.50 each *RR didn't print. Manager gave me $3 cash instead. Realized now I used a $3 Coke RR from first store, which is why the new RR didn't print. Duh!
  • 2 Glade Sense and Spray $7.99 each, used BOGO coupons or here and $4 coupon (or 2/8 SS) and $4 WAG coupon (give last, in Easy Saver book, scans 2x automatically) = $4.01 profit
  • 2 Garnier 100% Color Hair Color clearanced to $3.29 each, used two $2 coupons (3/8 RP) and tried to use $2 WAG coupon (Easy Saver book). Long story short, it would not scan and manager marked the hair colors down to $0.29 each (not sure why!) but still let me use the $2 coupons (she scanned them first, then did the price change) = $1.71 profit
  • 2 Clairol Perfect 10 Hair Colors clearanced to $3.59 each, used $5 coupon (3/1 P&G) = $2.18 for both
  • 2 Garnier Fructis conditioners $2.99 each, used two $1 coupons (1/4 or 3/8 RP) and $2 WAG coupon (give second, in Easy Saver book, scans 2x automatically) = $0.02 profit
  • Used $3 RR, total was $7.72

Different store, different day

  • 2 Glade Sense and Spray $7.99 each, used BOGO coupons or here and $4 coupon (or 2/8 SS) and $4 WAG coupon (give last, in Easy Saver book, scans 2x automatically) = $4.01 profit
  • 4 cases Diet Coke $13 or $3.25 each, got back $3 RR for buying four = $2.50 each
  • Irish Spring body wash $4.49, got RR back for another free bottle - this RR rolls!
  • Garnier Fructis shampoo $2.99, used $1 coupon (1/4 or 3/8 RP) and $2 WAG coupon (give second, in Easy Saver book) = $0.01 profit
  • Used $10 RR and $2 RR, total was $2.75

Back again

  • 4 cases Diet Coke $13 or $3.25 each, got back $3 RR for buying four = $2.50 each
  • Irish Spring body wash $4.49, used RR from previous transaction and still got RR back for another free bottle = FREE *RR's don't normally roll like this. Normally if I'd used the first RR to buy more of the same item, the new RR wouldn't print.
  • Garnier Fructis shampoo $2.99, used $1 coupon (1/4 or 3/8 RP) and $2 WAG coupon (give second, in Easy Saver book) = $0.01 profit
  • Used $10 RR and $2 RR, total was $1.71

How do you get so many of the BOGO coupons? I can only get 2 Sense & Spray ones to print. Also, when using a BOGO and a $ off coupon, what order should I give them in to eliminate beeps?

Sarah,
I printed a couple at home and a couple at work several weeks ago. Then the website reset or something and I was able to print a couple more. I'm finally out now, so I'm done buying Glade...for now. :)

CJ Sime,
