Athos, Porthos or Aramis?

Walgreens
  • 2 Kotex Maxi Pads (14-24 ct) $3 each, used $2 off 2 coupon (1/10 SS), got back $3 RR (WYB 2) and will submit for $4 Panty Challenge = $3 profit
  • Super Poligrip Original (0.75 oz) $2, used $1 coupon (1/3 RP) and got back $2 RR = $1 profit
  • Walgreens raisins $1
  • Used $6 RR, total was $0.14

Then I bought

  • Schick Quattro Titanium Razor $8.99, got back $3 RR and will send away for Try Me Free rebate (2/7 SS) = $3 profit
  • Five 3 Musketeers candy bars $0.49 each with in-circular coupon, buy four and get back $1.50 RR (monthly deal) = $0.46 for three or $0.15 each
  • Total was $1.24

At another store I repeated this transaction but used a $3 Schick RR (duh!) so the new one didn't print. I didn't realize what happened at first, but a manager voided the transaction and I bought everything again minus the $3 RR. They let me keep both $1.50 RR's.

  • Schick Quattro Titanium Razor $8.99, got back $3 RR and will send away for Try Me Free rebate (2/7 SS) = $3 profit
  • Five 3 Musketeers candy bars $0.49 each with in-circular coupon, buy four and get back $1.50 RR (monthly deal) = $0.46 for three or $0.15 each
  • Used $6 RR, total was $4.24

Rite Aid - these are hard to find at RA. Seems like the stores have been putting them on endcaps, not with the body wash so be sure to look around.

  • Dove Men's Care $4.00, used $1.75 coupon (1/31 RP) and will get back $4 (SCR #52) = $1.75 profit

CVS *Had some EB's that were expiring otherwise I would have probably passed on the deals this week

  • Reach Total Care $3.99, used BOGO coupon (12/6 or 1/3 RP) and got back $4 EB (Limit 2) = FREE/$0.01 profit
  • 5 Nabisco crackers $10, used five $1 coupons (1/24 SS) and got back $3 EB (Limit 1) = $2 or $0.40 each
  • Used $3 EB and $5 EB, total was $1.55

Hi Suz,

I love your blog! I always look at what you buy everyday! You are so cool. And I love how your blog looks like. It's so neat.

Anyway, did the in-ad coupon for the 3 musketeers went through with no beeps?

Thanks in advance!

Mona,
Thanks so much! Nope, it worked just fine on the candy bars, no beeps at all. You can buy any kind of 3 Musketeers bar for the RR as well.

Angie,
If you buy 3, you get $1. If you buy 4, you get back $1.50. Its a monthly deal and good only on 3 Musketeers (as far as I know anyway).

Where is the Schick try me free rebate? Are they inside the package?

Leah,
Sorry about that, it was in last Sunday's SS insert. I'm going to update the post to include that.
