Enough Goodies for Another Coors Rebate

CVS - DBF's card
  • 2 Tostitos $3.50 each, used $1 off 2 coupon (Easy Solutions booklet found at A&P or Pathmark) = $6 or $3 each
  • 2 Oust Surface Disinfectant & Air Sanitizers $3.99 each, used BOGO coupon (1/3 SS) and got back $6 EB ($3 each, monthly deal, Limit 6) = $2.01 profit
  • Soy Joy $6, got back $6 EB (monthly deal, Limit 6) = FREE
  • Used $5 off $20 coupon, $3 EB and $6 EB, total was $1.39
  • Now I have $7 towards the $20 EB for the Pepsi deal on this card
At another store I bought:
  • 4 Pepsi 2-liters $1.25 each
  • 2 Tostitos $3.50 each, used $1 off 2 coupon (Easy Solutions booklet found at A&P or Pathmark) = $6 or $3 each
  • 2 Oust Surface Disinfectant & Air Sanitizers $3.99 each, used BOGO coupon (1/3 SS) and got back $6 EB ($3 each, monthly deal, Limit 6) = $2.01 profit
  • Sprite (12 oz I think) $1.69 - I wasn't feeling so hot today so I bought this to settle my stomach. Isn't it crazy that this cost more than a 2-liter bottle? But I wasn't about to sit at my desk chugging a 2 liter! lol
  • Used $5 off $20 coupon, $3 EB and $6 EB, total was $3.47
  • Now I have...(wait for it) $19 towards the Pepsi deal. D'OH! If I'd just bought one more bottle and used a $1 off 5 coupon, I would have been fine. Sigh. I'll pick up another one later this week to top off this deal.

Walgreens - did this transaction twice

  • Bayer Breeze 2 Blood Glucose Meter $14.99, used freebie coupon (10/25 RP) and got back $5 RR = $5 profit
  • Bayer Contour Blood Glucose Meter $14.99, use freebie coupon (10/25 RP) and get back $5 RR = $5 profit
  • Got back $3 RR for buying two Bayer items together, $13 overall profit

Then I set about spending some of those RR's. FYI - at WAG's, you can buy any variety of Tostitos, but only the restaurant style count at CVS.

  • Accu-Check Aviva Care Kit $9.99, used $10 coupon (adjusted to $9.99, 11/8 SS) and $5 WAG coupon (Diabetes & You magazine, found near Pharmacy) = $5 profit
  • 4 Tostitos $2.50 each, used two $1 off 2 coupons (Easy Solutions booklet found at A&P or Pathmark) = $8 or $2 each
  • 8 Pepsi 2-liters $1.25 each, used two $1 off 5 coupons (Easy Solutions booklet found at A&P or Pathmark) = $8 or $1 each - totally wasn't thinking and gave the cashier two of these coupons even though I only bought 8 bottles, but they worked!
  • Tried to use some RR's but they beeped. The cashier was super nice and since he didn't even bat an eyelash over the Accu-Check overage, I didn't push it. Total was $11.70 and I got back $10 RR for spending $20 on Pepsi products

I will submit this receipt plus the CVS ones for the $10 Coors rebate (DBF's address). I only have to spend $30 to qualify for the rebate, so it won't matter that I'm $1 short for my CVS EB's.

Final Trip for the Day

  • Accu-Check Aviva Care Kit $9.99, used $10 coupon (11/8 SS) and $5 WAG coupon (Diabetes & You magazine, found near Pharmacy) = $5.01 profit
  • 2 Jergens Ultra Healing lotion (12.5 oz) $4.29 each, used $3 off 2 coupon (12/6 SS) and got back $5 RR = $0.58 *With the overage from the Accu-Check, this was a moneymaker for me
  • 5 Kraft Easy Mac single cups $1 each - will use these along with the Chips Ahoy I bought a couple weeks back towards a $20 Kraft rebate (WYB 10 cookies/crackers, 5 Easy Mac cups and 5 Kraft beverages). I just have to pick up the beverages and I'll be good to go. The Chips Ahoy were free after RR and the Easy Mac cups were basically free since paid for them with Accu-Check overage and Bayer RR's, which were a pure profit. I'll use some more Bayer RR's to pick up the beverages, so I'm basically turning RR's into cash and picking up some goodies to donate to the food pantry along the way. Gotta love that! The rebate form was sent to me by a good buddy, but I think you can find the forms in supermarkets. Thank you to pubbler for posting about it in the first place!
  • Used $5 RR, total was $1.17

Did the coupon in the D book beep?

Nope, I used the $5 coupon first and then gave the $10 coupon at the end of my order. I didn't have any problems, but an observant cashier might catch it.

Ooohh; I thought the Oust limit was 3, them upping it to 6 is pretty spiffy news!

"spiffy" lol

Question on the nature's bounty. When you say the limit is 6, does that mean 12 individual bottles since it's BOGO? I did the transaction 3 times already, so I have 6 bottles, but would like to do more if possible.
THANKS!

mb,
That's always confusing, isn't it? Since the deal is $3 EB for every two that you buy, a limit of six means you can do that deal six times, so 12 bottles total.

Great! Thanks for answering my question. I'll be heading back to CVS ASAP!!
