Trying to Get a Nut to Move Your Butt!

Ahh, nothing like classy song lyrics to warm the heart and soul. ;)
Walgreens - used a raincheck from last week to get this price on the Planters
  • 10 Planters peanuts $1.99 each, used five $1 off 2 coupons (1/3 or 1/24 SS) and $1 Walgreens coupon (from Diabetes & You magazine, took off $10 automatically) = $4.90 and will submit for the $10 rebate (DBF's address) = $5.10 profit
  • Walgreens cheese stick $0.59
  • Used $5 RR, total was $0.49

At another store, I bought:

  • 6 Planters peanuts $1.99 each, used three $1 off 2 coupons (1/3 or 1/24 SS) and $1 Walgreens coupon (from Diabetes & You magazine, took off $6 automatically) = $2.94
  • Walgreens cheese stick $0.59
  • Used $2 RR, total was $1.53 *Once I buy four more cans, I'll submit for another $10 rebate (parent's address)

Separately, I bought the York peppermint patty ($0.89) and the Reese's PB cups ($0.49 with circular coupon). I'm going to send away for two coupons for free bags of Pieces candy with this rebate (one at my address, one at DBF's).


  • Dulcolax Balance (14 doses) $10.99, used $3 coupon (or 12/13 SS or $2 coupon in 1/24 SS), got back $5 EB (Limit 1) and will send away for $5 rebate = $2.01 profit
  • Oral B Indicator toothbrush $1.99, got back $1 EB (Limit 1) = $0.99 - was going to use the $1 coupon in the 1/17 P&G but cashier wouldn't let me use it. The coupon is for a different kind of Oral B brush, so I couldn't object.
  • Used $1 EB and $6 EB, total was $3.64
There's a fabulous Kohl's coupon floating around now - $5 off any purchase of anything. I bought 20 copies on ebay for $1.95 and the seller emailed me the links right away. I printed them out and then off I went. Thanks nasagreen for mentioning this coupon on the boards! What a great way to get some cheap clothes! Someone used a whole bunch of these along with the same gift card and Kohl's tracked her down, so I've been using cash or different types of payment with each that I use.

Sonoma 3/4 sleeve shirt $7.99, $2.99 after coupon - paid with cash
Sonoma shirt (blue) $12.99, $7.99 after coupon - paid with Discover card
Apt. 9 dress pants $27.99, $22.99 after coupon - paid with gift card that my mom gave me for Christmas

I love, love, love these Apt. 9 pants! I have about 5 pairs now and they are so comfortable and fit me perfectly. I have such a hard time finding pants that I like, so when I find a brand that fits well, I tend to buy a lot. I've slowly been buying these pants over the last several months. They normally go for $44 each, so I wait for a good sale/coupon/Kohl's cash deal.

I am also in love with the Sonoma brand at Kohl's. I know I sound like a commercial now, but the shirts are awesome. I really need some shirts for work, not more weekend stuff, but I couldn't resist. The blue shirt has butterflies all down the side, so cute!

C'mon let's sweat, baby... Let the rhythm take control. Let the rhythm move you.

Thanks for the great posts. Your blog is so user friendly and easy to follow. I love it! I bought a bunch of the $5 Kohl's coupons last summer on ebay and got most of my son's Christmas presents for loose change! They have great toy deals!!

LOL at both of you! :)

Thanks so much! I try to explain things so that the most people will get the best deals. From someone brand new to all this to the experienced couponer.

Question for you... I did the Pepsi deal once last week at CVS. I think the limit was 2 but I only did it once. What's the limit this week and is it considered the same deal as last week in terms of limits?

frugalsuz said...

I think it might be a monthly deal? I'm really not sure to be honest. I would check your receipt the next time you buy something there. If the Pepsi deal is still listed at the bottom, its definitely a monthly deal and probably limit 2.

Is it illegal to use the Kohl's coupons? I just bought a bunch on Ebay for .99 and we went this morning to use a couple. But now I am freaknig out a little wondering about it.

I don't see why not. Mine are all different and associated with different email addresses, so they're legit. I haven't had any trouble so far.

I've done that rebate already, but you can certainly go for it! Sometimes those rebates don't work when there's a RR deal involved.

Queen said...

I second that. I've been burned more than once on meter mail in rebates because I bought them without spending any cash
