Sunday Shopping

Walgreens
  • Complete Multipurpose Solution (12 oz) $7.99, use $2 coupon (5/16 RP) and get back $8 RR = $2 profit
  • 2 Hunts tomato sauces $0.25 each - had planned on using two RR's to pay, so I picked up two of these. I did my math wrong and wasn't able to use both though.
  • Used $3 RR, total was $4.05 - paid with gift card

Then I repeated with just one Hunts:

  • Complete Multipurpose Solution (12 oz) $7.99, use $2 coupon (5/16 RP) and get back $8 RR = $2 profit
  • Hunts tomato sauce $0.25
  • Used $4.50 RR, total was $2.30

CVS - DBF's card

  • Dinner and a Movie Gift card $50 (Applebees and AMC Theater - your store's selection may vary), got back $10 EB (Limit 2) = $10 profit
  • 2 Old Spice Body Washes $4 each, used BOGO coupon (5/2 P&G - cashier entered in as regular price - $5.29) and got back $8 EB ($4 each, Limit 2) = $5.29 profit
  • CVS Shampoo $0.99, used $1 CRT (no beeps) = FREE/$0.01 profit
  • Used $1 EB, total was $52.31 - can't use EB's towards gift cards so I paid balance with my credit card. Got back $1 EB for using reusable bags

You could also use the coupon in the 5/02 p&g that is buy 2 body washes and get a old spice body spray free.
Each coupon only attaches to one item. I did this yesterday with no beeps.

2 OS body washes $8.00
1 OS body spray $4.99
used B1G1 body wash q
and B2 BW and get Body spray free.

Get three items for free..

Michelle,
Thanks for the tip, I'll have to clip that coupon when I get home. :)

Nice score on the dinner and a movie giftcard. I miss CVS shopping!

I enjoy your posts as I am new to the world of couponing. I have scored many great deals thanks to you. I am curious though. You mention paying with gift cards. Are you purchasing the gift cards or are you earning them as rewards from another site?

Thanks!

Precious,
Thanks! That stinks that you don't have any CVS's near you.

A,
I'm glad that my posts have been helpful for you! :) I earn CVS gift cards with the points on my credit card. I often buy Walgreens gift cards using my RR's, but I stopped posting about it because I was tired of getting negative comments about it from readers. The RR's say they exclude prepaid gift cards, but work just fine on gift cards all the same, so your cashier may veto it. I've never had a problem though. Here's a link to an older post where I bought one: http://frugalsuz.blogspot.com/2010/03/roll-it-like-you-mean-it.html
