John FREE-da

My garage door opener has been acting up lately and I asked my hunny to take a look at it for me. Not only did he fix it, he swept out my whole garage, vacuumed my car, cleaned the dashboard and windows AND sprayed the seats with Febreze. How sweet was that?

Walgreens
  • Carefree Pantiliners $0.99, used $0.50 coupon (3/27 RP) and got back $1 RR = $0.51 profit
  • 7 Snickers Chocolate Eggs (1 oz) $0.29 each, used two $1 off 2 coupons (3/20 or 4/10 RP) = $0.03
  • Total was $0.66
So excited to see that the latest Harry Potter DVD is coming out this week! I'm planning on using up my 10 Carefree coupons and then I'll use those $1 RR's on the movie on Friday. ETA - looks like HP is going to be around $16.99 after UP's at Rite Aid next week so I'll probably buy it there using a $3/$15.

Rite Aid
  • John Frieda Root Awakening Shampoo, Full Repair Shampoo and Full Repair Conditioner - all $5 each and Full Repair Flyaway Tamer $7.99 ($9.99 reg price, 20% discount), used four $2 coupons (3/6 SS or here), $1 Full Repair RA coupon (March Video Values), $2 off $10 Full Repair RA coupon (April Video Values), got back $10 UP (WYB $20, monthly deal) and will submit for $7.99 rebate for Flyaway Tamer (WYB Full Repair Sham + Cond, pic of hangtag rebate here) = $6 profit
  • 2 Old Spice Fresh Collection Body Washes $2.99 each, used BOGO coupon (4/3 P&G) and got back two $2 UP's (Limit 2) = $1.01 profit
  • Complete Multi-Purpose Solution (12 oz) $7.99, used $1 coupon (4/3 SS) and will get back $7.99 (SCR #24) = $1 profit
  • 5 Rite Aid Dryer Sheets (80 ct. or 80 ct. plus 20) $0.99 each (unadvertised price - be sure to check yours before you buy) and got back three $1 UP's (Limit 3 on this deal) = $1.96 for all five (would have been free if I'd just bought three boxes)
  • Used $3/$15 survey coupon, $17 in UP's, total was $3.13
The Full Repair stylers may not all ring up as $5, but they are counting towards the UP deal. Then at another store, I bought:
  • John Frieda Luxurious Volume Shampoo, Full Repair Shampoo and Full Repair Conditioner - all $5 each and Full Repair Flyaway Tamer $8.23 ($10.29 reg price, 20% discount), used four $2 coupons (3/6 SS or here), $1 Full Repair RA coupon (March Video Values), $2 off $10 Full Repair RA coupon (April Video Values), got back $10 UP (WYB $20, monthly deal) and will submit for $7.99 rebate for Flyaway Tamer (WYB Full Repair Sham + Cond, pic of hangtag rebate here) = $6 profit
  • 2 Gillette Body Washes $2.99 each, used BOGO coupon (4/3 P&G) and got back two $2 UP's (Limit 2) = $1.01 profit
  • Complete Multi-Purpose Solution (12 oz) $7.99, used $1 coupon (4/3 SS) and will get back $7.99 (SCR #24) = $1 profit
  • 2 Rite Aid Dryer Sheets (80 ct. or 80 ct. plus 20) $1.12 each (unadvertised price - be sure to check yours before you buy) and got back two $1 UP's (Limit 3) = $0.24
  • Used $3/$15 survey coupon, $21 in UP's, total was $1.86
The John Frieda deal is tracking your purchases across multiple receipts. With the Flyaway Tamer, I spent a bit over $20 - $3.23 to be exact. This means that I can go back, buy another tamer for around $8 and a Full Repair Shampoo and Conditioner ($5 each) and be over the $20 mark to get another $10 UP! I'll also use this towards a third rebate on the tamer. Love it!

I also got a code for a $3/$15 coupon on both these receipts. Since RA got rid of the $5/$25 coupons, this has been almost as good!

For a minute there, I thought this title was a take on the "coo-pon vs. q-pon" thing!
Thanks so much for all you do...your blog really makes things a lot easier!

Don't I know it Jessica! :)

Deb,
HA! That would have been funny! You're very welcome

Hey Suz...quick question for you. Were both of these Rita Aid transactions on the same card? I'm curious if you got UPS for both the Gillette & the Old Spice.

Laurie,
No sorry, the second trip was on my boyfriend's card. The Gillette/Old Spice deal is limit 2 per card.

That's what I figured, but I thought I'd double check. I love free/money maker bodywash!
