- Bausch & Lomb Renu Multipurpose Sensitive Solution (12 oz) $7.49, used $2 coupon (or regional coupon 6/6 SS or in June Safeway coupon booklet) and got back $7.50 RR = $2.01 profit
- Hunts Tomato Sauce $0.33 with in-circular coupon
- Used $5 RR, total was $1.36
Used $4 RR on second transaction. Total was $2.36
Also stopped by Staples to drop off some used ink cartridges - will get back $6 in Staples Rewards for each one. I had six, so that definitely works for me! I had a $1 Staples Reward that was expiring soon, so I picked up a pack of paper clips for $1.29.
Rite Aid - forgot to put this in the pic. Its somewhere in the depths of my purse.
- Motrin PM (20 ct) $3, used $3 coupon (4/18 RP) and got back $3 +UP Rewards = $3 profit
Tried to do a transaction at a different RA using a $5 off $20 coupon. The cashier said she had to scan it last, which is fine with me because it will still scan if your total ends up being less than $20. Then the Asst. Mgr. came over, started questioning everything (ie. using Video Values coupon with a manu coupon - she was saying they were both manu coupons), voided the order and re-rang everything. She actually told me (told me, the customer!) to get all the coupons in order. I did nothing since they were already all on the counter and she could look for the one she wanted. She scanned each item, found the corresponding coupons, scanned them and then scanned the next item.
At the end of this long ordeal, she tells me I can't use the $5 off $20 coupon because my total was $6. I showed her the RA coupon policy that I carry with me that says you can use this (she had a copy of the same thing) but said her District Manager said they can't do that. A lot of the stores in my area have recently been saying this, so I bet its the same guy/gal for the area. I said I'd like to cancel the order and get my coupons back, to which she replied - "but your total is only $6." Yeah, I realize that. I got my coupons back and DBF and I left.
The whole thing really ticked me off. She had an attitude towards me right from the start. Sometimes, situations like this make me want to throw my hands up and give up. But you know I won't! :) I'll hit another store tomorrow and see if I have better luck. I'm very thankful that I live in an area with so many stores to choose from.
