Keep your Fingers Crossed for Me

Kmart - wanted to get some of the free St. Ives that I saw on Queen's blog
  • 7 St. Ives Elements cleansers/scrubs $3.49 each (marked $6.99 but are actually on sale), used seven $2 coupons (doubled to $3.49 each, 3/8 SS) = FREE
  • Rubbermaid laundry basket $9.44 - really needed, mine are all cracked and broken
  • 2 Pillows - $7.99 each, really needed these too, mine are super old
  • 3 Tidy Cats Breeze litter $5.99 each
  • Tidy Cats Breeze litter pads $3.99, used $1 coupon (doubled to $2, WYB litter and pads, home mailer or inside package -- can't remember)
  • Diet Coke for DBF $1.49
  • Total was $51.20

I needed some new pillows and I picked up one thinking it would be good to have an extra item in case the St. Ives coupons gave overage. Then I started thinking, well, I really need two pillows so maybe I'll get another one and some other stuff to try for the rebate below. I haven't had the best of luck with Glamour rebates in the past, but even if it doesn't come, the laundry basket, pillows and litter are all things I need anyway. Fingers crossed!

From Queen's blog:

Page 145 of April's Glamour magazine (Katie Holmes-Cruise 70th anniversary cover) right hand side:

"Glamour is calling all smart shoppers. Shop March 10th-April 30th at Kmart. Spend $50 at Kmart and mail your original receipt to Glamour. For every $50 you spend, we'll send you a $25 Kmart gift card to use toward your next purchase" **While supplies last.

Kmart purchases must be make during the promotion period. For every eligible receipt, you will receive a gift card for exclusive use at Kmart stores. Send your qualifying receipts along with your name, address and telephone number to: GLAMOUR PLATINUM REWARDS ATTN: PROMOTIONS DEPARTMENT 4 TIMES SQUARE 16TH FLOOR NY, NY 10036

**Must be received by 5/13/2009. Allow 6-8 weeks for delivery of GC.

We went to the vet to pick up some more food for Mr. Mousse and they had stapled forms to the bags. They explained to me that there was a $5 rebate available until 3/31 for these - sounds good to me! They gave me two separate receipts, so I'll submit for one at my address and one at DBF's address. At $16.79 a bag, I'll take any discount I can get on this stuff!

A&P
  • 4 Perdue chicken cutlets - clearanced to $1.99 each, used one $1 coupon (3/15 RP, wish I had more with me) = $6.96 or $1.74 each
  • Wrigley's gum $1.19, used freebie coupon (3/15 SS) = FREE
  • Milk $1.19
  • Suave body wash $2.89, used freebie coupon (from previous promotion, automatically took off $3) = $0.11 profit
  • 3 Franks Red Hot Sauce $1.19, used three freebie coupons = FREE
  • Got $1.71 employee discount and $0.02 bag discount, total was $6.59

Is today the last day for the double coupon or does it go on tomorrow? I can't find anywhere where it says today was a double coupon day.

Amoora,
Yeah, unfortunatley today, 3/28 was the last day for doubles. I'm sure they'll do doubles again sometime soon though.

Queen,
Me too! But I'm really not counting on it. I did a rebate through Glamour magazine and never received anything.

oh ok :-S Thanks for letting me know. I can never figure out when they are having these double coupon days. I was too sick yesterday to try to get to kmart. BTW, you did awesome yesterday.
