My Favorite Pizza

CVS
  • Almay Pure Blends Face Powder *Bonus pack with free eyeshadow (found in front of store with cosmetic displays) $13.99, used $2 CRT coupon and $1 coupon (5/17 SS) and got back $10 EB (Limit 3) = $0.99
  • 6 Always Infinity pads (36 count) $4.99, used six $4 coupons (6/7 P&G) = $5.94 or $0.99 each *This variety is not advertised specifically in the circular (just in case you were looking for it)
  • Used $5 EB and $10 EB, total was $1.93

Walgreens

  • 4 packs Diet Coke $13, used four $1 coupons (from My Coke Rewards, coupon isn't available right now but I'm sure it will be back sooner or later) and got back $3 RR = $6 or $1.50 each
  • 4 Royal Puddings $0.25 each with in-circular coupon
  • Used four $2.50 RR's, total was $0.91 (tax)

Then I went back later for...you guessed it! Cheese...glorious cheese!

  • 2 bags Walgreens shredded cheese $1.50 each with in-circular coupon
  • 2 Red Baron pizzas $3 each - I know there have been cheaper prices for these recently, but this was the first time I'd seen a WAGs stock the four cheese variety. Plus they are soooo good!
  • Used three $3 RR's, total was zero

I'm now outta RR's and it feels wonderful! I was getting so sick of having all these RR's, worrying about expiration dates, planning scenarios, finding fillers, etc. I'm looking forward to a nice break from Walgreens.

I was just thinking the SAME thing about Wags! I only have a few RR's left and I see NOTHING this week or next week to roll them into that I want or need, so, time to just blow them and take a break for awhile! I was able to build my EB's this week so they are there to fall back on if I need anything...

Haha! I hate walgreens...but I keep going back. I have 6 RR''s to spend next week then I'm done...until the next great deal!

I'm with you on the RR issues. Once I had a bunch, I wanted to keep going like at CVS with Extra Bucks. It's addictive and very tiring. I have 19 RR left and I will be glad to be done with them.

I have some RR to get rid of this week. I definately like the extra bucks better. They are soooo much easier to use. The RR have sooo many rules and restrictions!

Yum - for frozen pizza, Red Baron is a favorite of mine, too! Hmmm...sounds like a tasty breakfast, now that we mention it!

looks like you got some great deals. I have never really liked the RR at Walgreens.

Connie,
Yeah, there's really nothing exciting at Walgreens in the near future. I was so sick of rolling them. It was nice to burn them on something yummy.

Ashley,
I really don't hate Walgreens, but I do get sick of them from time to time. The RR's are so complicated!

Amanda,
I've never had so many RR's or kept them rolling as I had been doing the past six months or so. Its exhausting!

Queen,
I agree, CVS's system is much easier to use and understand. Plus they give you a whole month to use the EB's, that takes off a lot of the pressure to use them right away.

Chicago,
Yum, I am such a fan of Red Baron!

Blakely,
Thanks!
