Ooh Boy, That's a Whole Lotta Shopping

I'm tired! My youngest sister and I trekked to Virginia this weekend to visit our other sister who moved down there. We had a wonderful time and I'll post some pics soon. The ride home was ok until we hit an awful rain storm, so we got home later than expected. What with unpacking, grabbing a quick dinner and dealing with a painful sunburn, last night was a bit hectic and I had to drag myself out of bed today. I had some catalinas/EB's expiring today, so I bucked up and got a ton of shopping done in-between yawns.
  • 4 Olay Total Effects $4.99 each, used four $4 coupons (6/6 P&G) and 2 Herbal Essences $2.99 each, used two $1 coupons (5/16 RP) and got back $10 catalina (WYB $25 worth of qualifying items) = $2.04 profit
  • Peaches $0.79/lb = $3.09 - will submit for $3 Absolut NBPR rebate (WYB $3 of produce) = FREE
  • Used $10 catalina, total was $2.10
  • 8 Orville Redenbacher Popcorns $1.89 each (shelf price $3.39), used eight $0.75 coupons (5/16 SS - I didn't get these in my inserts, bought on ebay) = $3.12 - got back $10 cat for buying $25 worth of qualifying items (based on shelf price) = $6.88 profit
  • Canteloupe $3, will submit for $3 Absolut NBPR rebate (WYB $3 of produce) = FREE
  • Mission Tortillas $3.19
  • Wrigley's Gum $1
  • Used $10 catalina, total was $0.38 - repeated this same transaction again

CVS - bought this Sunday before I realized the EB limit was two

  • Old Spice Deo $2.79 and Body Wash $4, used BOGO coupon (free body wash - cashier entered in as $4.49, 6/6 P&G) and got back $4 EB (Limit 2) = $1.70 profit
  • Used $2 EB - freebie that printed on previous receipt, total was $0.54

Bought today:

  • 2 Old Spice Body Washes $4 each, used BOGO coupon (cashier entered in as $5.29, 6/6 P&G) and got back $8 EB ($4 each, Limit 2) = $5.29 profit
  • 2 M&M's $0.89 each - needed fillers so I could this EB which was expiring
  • Used $4 EB, total was $1.06

Walgreens - bought this stuff Sunday so I can't send away for the Schick TMF rebate with this receipt (rebate starts 6/14). I'll buy more during the week and use those receipts instead.

  • Schick Hydro 3 or 5 Blade Razor $7.99, used $5 coupon (6/13 SS) and got back $4 RR = $1.01 profit
  • Nivea for Men Active 3 Body Wash (16.9 oz) $5.99, used $3 coupon (5/2 RP) and got back $6 RR = $3 profit
  • 2 Diet Cokes $1.59 each, used $1 off 2 peelie = $2.18
  • 2 M&M's pretzels $0.89 and $0.70 each - needed snacks for the ride home from VA!
  • Butterfinger candy $0.39 - filler
  • Used two $5 RR's, total was $0.97

Today's purchases: 3 Nivea's on their own = $9 profit and...

  • Nivea for Men Active 3 Body Wash (16.9 oz) $5.99, used $3 coupon (5/2 RP) and got back $6 RR = $3 profit
  • 10 Keebler Cookies/Crackers $0.99 each, will submit for $10 rebate (WYB 10 items in single transaction, from calendar that was released ages ago, found form on ebay) = FREE
  • Used $2 RR, $2.50 RR and $5 RR, total was $3.81

RiteAid - was planning to buy the OS deo that was $2.49 but had to get the Fresh Collection deo as per cashier. That's what the fine print on the coupon says, so of course he was right. Threw off my scenario a bit.

  • Old Spice Deodorant $5.49 and Body Wash $2.99, used buy deodorant, get body wash free coupon (6/6 P&G) and will get back $2.99 (for body wash, SCR #96) = FREE *Deo will count towards SCR #101 - $5 WYB $25 of select P&G items. UPDATE - this rebate was only good last week, thanks for catching that Jamie! Although I cleared this rebate on DBF's account with some items that weren't in the monthly book, it didn't work for my account so I'm a smidge short. If you aren't working on this deal, you're better off buying the body wash on its own or using another coupon. If I buy a second Fresh Collection deo, I'll qualify for a $2 rebate (SCR #81). I have to do the math to see if that's worth it.
  • 2 Everlast Supplements (only at GNC locations) $19.99 each, BOGO sale, used two $10 coupons = FREE/$0.02 profit
  • Huggies Diapers $8.99, used $3 coupon or $2.50 coupon (for Naturals), $1 RA coupon and got back $1 +UP Rewards = $3.99 - this should finish out my rebate for a coupon for a FREE pack of Huggies (SCR #800). There's also a $2 SCR on these, but I've already done that deal for this month
  • Used $5 off $20 coupon and one $4 +UP Reward, total was $1.72

Is the SCR #101 still going on? I thought it was only good 6/6-6/12?

Felicia said...

Yeah your cashier was right but on the coupon I checked it also said "of equal or lesser value" lol so he would've been better off letting you get the cheaper one. oh well!

The Old Spice on sale is the one my husband uses so I used the $1/2 coupon for that.

Oh crud, you're right. Guess I won't be getting that rebate afterall!

Its nice when you get deals on items you use every day!

Just wanted to thank you for always updating your weekly deal posts!! I always check back because I know you'll have everything updated with all the new deals as they are discovered. Thanks for doing all the leg work and compiling everything!

Can you please enlighten me on the rebate for the Peaches?

Gina said...

Is the SR CAT on Pre Sale Prices because what you bought doesn't ad up to $25?

Is there a way to shrink down the Everlast coupon? I printed it and it took up the whole page.

You're very welcome! :)

I goofed, the Herbal Essences are $2.99 each. So 4 body washes at $4.99 + 2 shampoos at $2.99 each = $25.94. I found the Absolut rebate on ebay. Its for $3 off any $3 produce purchase and Absolut, but I live in a No Beer Purchase Required state, so I can just submit for the produce. It expires 6/30.

I'm not sure, it prints that way for me too.
