A Little Bit of Everything

Aren't these cute? I made these labels with the Cricket machine I got for Christmas. On to shopping...
CVS - my card
  • 2 Crest Pro-Health Enamel Shield Toothpastes (4 - 4.2 oz) $3.50 each, used $1 off 2 coupon (2/7 P&G) and got back $7 EB ($3.50 each, Limit 2) = $1 profit
  • PowerBar Energy Gel Blasts $1.50, used $1 coupon (1/3 SS) and got back $1.50 EB (monthly deal, Limit 1) = $1 profit
  • 2 Cover Girl Clean Pressed Powders $6 each, used $1 coupon (1/17 P&G) and BOGO coupon (2/7 P&G) and got back $5 EB (WYB 2, Limit 1) = FREE
  • Used $10.98 EB, total was $1.95

DBF's card

  • 2 Crest Pro-Health Whitening Toothpastes (*Not listed in the circular but this store had them tagged and they worked, 4 - 4.2 oz) $3.50 each, used $1 off 2 coupon (2/7 P&G) and got back $7 EB ($3.50 each, Limit 2) = $1 profit

  • 3 Wisk Laundry Detergents $2.99 each, used three $2 coupons (1/31 RP) = $0.99 each *The bottle with the red cap rang up regular price $7.79. I brought it to Customer Service after I paid and after they verified that it was marked as $2.99 in the aisle, I got back $5.79 in cash ($7.79 minus $2 coupon)
  • Total was $7.82

At another store I bought 4 more Wisk's and 4 more Quakers

Rite Aid

  • 2 Olay Definity Cream Cleansers $6 each (part of three for $18 sale) and Olay Definity Mousse Cleanser (in the metal can) $4.99, used three $3 coupons (1/17 P&G) = $7.99 and will submit for $15 Olay rebate at my address (WYB 3 qualifying items) = $7.01 profit
  • Motrin PM (20 ct) $2.99, used $1 coupon (1/3 RP) and will get back $2 (SCR #16) = FREE/$0.01 profit
  • Used $5 off $20 coupon, total was $6.17. Overall profit for this transaction = $8.83

At another RA, I bought:

  • 3 Olay Definity Mousse Cleansers (in the metal can) $4.99 each, used two $3 coupons (1/17 P&G) and one $1 coupon (1/17 P&G)
  • Total was $9.02 and will submit for $15 Olay rebate at DBF's address (WYB 3 qualifying items) = $5.98 profit

Walgreens - less of a profit here on the rebate, but I had some RR's I wanted to use up

  • 4 Olay Ribbons Body Washes $5.29 each, BOGO 50% off sale, used three $1 coupons (1/17 P&G) = $12.87 and will submit for $15 Olay rebate at parent's address (WYB 3 qualifying items) = $2.13 profit

I don't know why I bought four body washes, I only needed three! I think I will return one. That will bring my OOP to $10.22 and my profit on the rebate up to $4.77

  • 4 Royal Puddings three for $1, fourth rang up as $0.34
  • Used $1.50 RR and four $3 RR's, total was $1.81

When you submit multiple rebates (to different address) are you submitting them in your name or do you use you parent's and BF names?

I use my name at my address and my parent's address and DBF's name at his address.

On the Walgreens trip, wouldn't you have to buy four because they were buy one, get one 50% off?

Cheap,
Thanks so much!

Jessica,
Yup, which is why I was thinking I'd need to buy four. But to do the rebate, I only need three bottles, so it doesn't matter if the last one is discounted. I didn't need to buy it at all.
