DBF's card

Rite Aid - hit three different RA's before I found one that stocked the Neutrogena, and that store only had one box. I would have just bought it at CVS, but I had some three $10 UP Rewards that I wanted to use up.

  • Crest Extra White Plus Scope Outlast Toothpaste (4 oz) $2.69, used $0.75 coupon (6/27 RP) and will get back $2.69 (SCR #128) = $0.75 profit
  • Crest 3D White Vivid Toothpaste $2.99, used $0.75 coupon (6/27 RP) and will get back $2 (SCR #133) = $0.24
  • Tampax (20 ct, excludes Tampax Pearl) $2.99, used $1 coupon (6/6 or 7/4 P&G) and will get back $1 (SCR #44) = $0.99
  • Neutrogena Clinical $39.99, used $5 coupon (or May issue of All You magazine), got back $2 UP Reward and will submit for TMF rebate = $7 profit
  • Used $5 off $25 coupon, two $2 UP Rewards and three $10 UP Rewards, total was $4.73. Paid using remaining $4.05 on Visa gift card I got at Stop & Shop and remaining $0.68 in cash

The $2 UP Rewards beeped when the cashier scanned them. He said they'd been having problems with them all day. He ended up entering them in cash. I've read online that people are having all sorts of problems redeeming these. I wish they'd get all the bugs out of the system already!

Walgreens
  • Gillette Fusion Proglide Razor $9.89, used $4 coupon (6/6 P&G) and got back $5 RR = $0.89
  • 4 Geisha Mushrooms $0.50 each with in-circular coupon
  • 3 Legal Pads (50 sheets, 5 x 8 or 8.5 x 11 inch) $0.29 with in-circular coupon
  • 6 Mead Envelopes (40 - 100 pack) $0.69 with in-circular coupon
  • Used three $3 RR's, total was $4.94

Bought a second razor separately. Found a bunch of these coupons on Saturday and since my boyfriend really likes the razors, I'll pick up some more here and there. The RR deal on the Gillette Razors is good until 8/8.

Acme - did this transaction four times. There are other ways to make more profit on the deal, but since I really only wanted the Tampax and there are only a couple Acme's in my area, I decided to minimize my trips.
  • 7 Tampax Pearl Tampons $3.79 each (shelf price $4.99), used seven $2 coupons (6/6 or 7/4 P&G) = $12.53
  • Got back $5 catalina for buying three qualifying P&G items and $15 catalina for iTunes gift card for buying $30 of qualifying items
  • 4 Edge Shaving Creams $1.50, used $0.75 coupons (6/27 SS) = FREE *$1.50 price is valid until 7/28
  • Total was $12.74

On my subsequent trips, I used a $5 cat to pay, bringing my OOP down to $7.74

After my fourth transaction, I bought four iTunes gift cards and was able to use four the coupons all at once. I got this all done in two stores, not too shabby! If you don't have this many coupons, you could just buy three Tampax, spend $5.37 plus tax and get back the $5 cat.

Here is the UPC list for buy three, get $5 promo and the UPC list for the iTunes deal.

By chance, do you have a copy of June's Rite Aid Video Values coupon for the $10 off Wahl hair clippers? If so, can you please e-mail it to kathy1977@wowway.com?
