I'm super excited. I'm just hoping that the monitors & Nivea will both be in our ad. There are more $1 Band Aid Qs in the 2/8 SS

frugalsuz said...

Ooh, thanks, I needed just a couple more Band Aid coupons! I'm excited too. Hopefully the RR's will still print for you even if your ad doesn't have the items. At least the Bayer monitors would still be a profit!

Pubbler said...

You are right. Even if the price is higher, that Q will still make the monitors free, cause its up to $30. Thanks for mentioning that.

Shelly said...

I need to get working on my coupons! Thanks for reminding me!

ThriftyPuppy said...

Not a moneymaker but, if you need the Dr. Scholl's, there are peelies on them at KMart for $1 off and $2 off.

frugalsuz said...

Ooh, thanks for the tip! I figured the Dr. Scholls would be a good thing to use some RR's on, so I'll definitely hit up Kmart for those coupons. Thanks a million!

Get cuttin' girl!

Hey Frugalsuz-

Love, love, love the blog! I wasn't really into WG's before....thanks for my new addiction! :) I can't get the Nivea coupon to come up. Is there another link?

Also, I was looking this week to see what stores had monitors and such, a lot of them are out already due to the Crest deal. What would you do if the store is out? I have access to numerous stores around me and was planning on getting as many as I can and rolling the RR into diapers for this baby due in 10 days :)

Brooke's Mom,
Thank you very much! I'm glad you found my blog and a BIG congratulations on your soon-to-arrive little one.

I fixed the Nivea link so that should work now.

If your store is out, you could ask for a raincheck, but I'm not sure they can do much because its a RR deal (the stores cannot control what prints from the catalina printers) and not a sale price. Your best bet may to be ask when they will be restocking and stop back later in the week.

i have a question the 3/11.00 pepesi and get a 3.00 rr back. I have a buy 2 get 1 free coupon on diet pepsi. how does this work. do i need to get 4 pepsi so my 3.00 rr will print. Love the blog thank YOU!!

frugalsuz said...

Thanks, I'm so glad to hear you like my posts! :) Ok, so you have a B2G1 coupon. So you could buy three cases = $11. Then you'd use your B2G1 coupon for a value of $3.66. Then you'd pay = $7.32. Then you'd get back your $3 RR after the transaction is complete, so all in all, you paid $4.32 for three cases. Not bad at all! :)
