Rock Me Apple Danish

You didn't think this was going to be a post about baking did you? If you've been reading my blog for any amount of time, you'll know that's really not my style. Instead, let's travel back to the 80's for a minute. Do you remember this song? For some reason, my sister always thought the words to this song were "Apple danish, apple danish, rock me apple danish!" I'm not sure why, considering the NAME of the song is Rock Me Amadeus. But now whenever I hear this song, that's what pops into my head. Dare you to listen to it and not think the same thing! :)
CVS - I peeled off the PF TMF stickers before the pic. I'm not sure if the Dove price is a sale this week or a clearance price. EDIT - the Dove is a sale price (thanks ladies!) so if your store is out, make sure to get a raincheck.
  • Physician's Formula Bronze Booster Pressed Powder $8.99 (40% off sale this week), used $1 coupon (3/22 or 4/19 SS) and $5 CRT and will submit for Try Me Free rebate (has to have TMF sticker on it) = $6 profit
  • 3 Dove Skin Vitalizers $4 each, used three $3.50 coupons (3/15 RP - can also print $3.75 coupons here - sorry, looks like this coupon has been taken down) = $1.50 *Thanks for the tip on these Precious!
  • Edge Infused Comfort or Hydrate Shave Gel $2.89, get back $2.89 EB (Limit 1) = FREE
  • CVS reusable bag $0.99
  • Used $7.98 EB, total was $1.22, overall profit $2.68

DBF's card

  • Physician's Formula Bronze Booster Loose Powder $8.99 (40% off sale this week), used $1 coupon (3/22 or 4/19 SS) and $5 CRT and will submit for Try Me Free rebate (has to have TMF sticker on it) = $6 profit
  • 5 Dove Skin Vitalizers $4 each, used three $3.50 coupons (3/15 RP) and two $3.75 coupons (printable, no longer available) = $2 for all five
  • Edge Infused Comfort or Hydrate Shave Gel $2.89, get back $2.89 EB (Limit 1) = FREE
  • Used $5 off $30 purchase coupon and $1 EB, total was $3.34, overall profit $7.54

Stopped by one more store for the last Dove

  • Dove Skin Vitalizer $4, used $3.50 coupon (3/15 RP) = $0.78 after tax

Walgreens - I've been on the hunt for PF mascaras, but I haven't been able to find them anywhere so I did this deal instead.

  • 3 Physician's Formula Organic Wear eye shadows $4.79 each, used three $1 coupons (3/22 or 4/19 SS) and will get back $11 ($10 + 10%, ESR #6) = $0.37 for all three
  • Chapstick 100% Naturals or True Shimmer Lip Balm $1.99, got back $2 RR = FREE
  • Walgreens spoons $0.50 with in-circular coupon
  • Used two $6 RR's, total was $3.04


  • Taylor digital kitchen scale (will use for ebay stuff) $17.99
  • 4 Pretzelfills $1.84, used four $0.75 coupons (2/22 or 3/15 RP) = $0.34 each
  • 4 Breyers Yo Crunch yogurts $0.50 each (fillers)
  • Used $1 catalina and four $3 catalinas, total was $9.61

The catalinas were almost a pure profit for me, so I didn't mind spending them on the scale, which was a little pricey. I'm basically calculating them as a $13 coupon. I also got back a coupon for a free bottle of Kraft dressing - not sure what triggered that.

I'm planning on going to CVS tomorow and hope they still have some of the Dove.

Connie said...

Check your CVS reusable bag for a coupon...the other day, one of the cashier's told me they have a 50 cent coupon on them!

Jamie said...

Both of my CVS stores were wiped out of the Dove! Grrr...This afternoon as the cashier was digging through the coupon bag (after one of mine didn't scan) I saw TONS of the $3.50 Dove Coupons that someone had used to buy them all out. I'm still mad about it! LOL.

The $4.00 price is the sales price. So, the good news is that I should be able to snag a raincheck for at least one of them!

Wish my CVS had the TMF peelies for the PF!

I got the kraft catalina too. I think it was from the breyers purchases.

The dove is a sale can tell by the tag they put under them.

What a great title! Brought back memories of high school...

Chicagolandia said...

You crack me up - Rock Me, APple Danish! Great deals, too.

frugalsuz said...

Good luck! Remember to ask for a raincheck if they're out.

Ooh, good call! There's a $0.50 coupon inside the price tag. :)

Ugh, I hate when that happens. At least you can get a raincheck!

I'm swimming in Kraft lately, but I guess one more can't hurt.


Thanks! :)

I cant seem to find the 3.75 coupon. I have one 3.50 coupon if i can ever find the dove vitalizer at my store the lady told me they have been on order for a few weeks now and never come in.

frugalsuz said...

I tried to print the $3.75 coupon yesterday on a different computer and couldn't find it either. I guess they took it down already.

Precious said...

Hi Suz,

I am so glad you were able to get in on the Dove! I am loving these for gifts and garage sale!

You did fantastic on all your purchaes.

Pubbler said...

Have you seen the Simpsons parody of Rock me Amadeus/Planet of the Apes? Hillarious!

frugalsuz said...

That's hilarious!! Thanks so much for sharing

Jennifer said...

I was able to also get the refill pack for the Dove item using the $3.50 coupon. They were on sale at my store for $3.49, making it a one cent profit!

Thanks for sharing all you do!

frugalsuz said...

Ooh, that's a good idea!
