Glitch Day

Check out the new Carrie Underwood song!  I just love her!

UPDATE - the Huggies wipes are no longer printing RR's.

Walgreens - first time I've set foot into Walgreens since December.  I really wanted to pick up some cheap razors for DBF.  Deals on razors have become so scarce that when I see a great deal, I am definitely stocking up.  With the profit from the Renew, they work out to be free.  The $3 coupon is no longer available but I have a copy that I'm happy to send to anyone who needs it.  Email me dear friends.

  • Renew Life Ultimate Flora Daily Care (30 cps) $10, used $3 coupon (no longer available) and got back $10 RR = $3 profit
Buyer beware - the Renew rang up for me as $24.99 in three different stores today.  Keep an eye on it and don't be afraid to ask the cashier to modify the price to $10.  Then I used that $10 RR to buy:
  • Baby Magic Dustless Baby Powder (0.28 oz) $6, send away for $6 rebate = FREE *If get money back on a Walgreens gift card, you get a 10% bonus = $0.60 profit
  • Huggies Wipes $2.49, used $0.50 coupon (2/12 SS) and got back $2 RR = FREE/$0.01 profit
  • W Men's 5 Blade Razor $3.99, got back $3 RR = $0.99
  • Used $10 RR, total was $2.68
Then I used the RR's just earned to get more Renew - 

  • Renew Life Ultimate Flora Daily Care (30 cps) $10, used $3 coupon (no longer available) and got back $10 RR = $3 profit
  • 2 Tuf Paper Towels $0.69 each with in-circular coupon
  • Used $2 RR and $3 RR, total was $3.38

Then bought another Huggies, razor and baby powder.  Rolled that back into Renew again (plus three bottles of Hydrogen Peroxide that we needed) and finally back into a third set of Huggies, razor and baby powder.  The baby powder rebate is limit one so I'll send away for one at home, one at my parent's and one at DBF's mom's house.  

Don't know how long the Huggies deal will work, so if you want some, better get out there.  The following varieties are confirmed to be working: Natural Care unscented, Soft Skin and Sensitive.

Rite Aid - today I tackled the Pantene and tomorrow is Robitussin day.  I wanted to buy these on their own so I can use them towards the $15 P&G rebate WYB $50 of certain items including Pantene (Exp. 4/28).  I've spent $21 so far but it was all in "almost" free items!  Love that

  • 2 Pantene Ice Shine/Aqua Light Sham/Cond $3.50 each, used $3 off 2 coupon (2/26 SS) and got back $2 UP's ($2 WYB 2, Limit 2 offers, weekly deal) and two $1 UP's (mystery deal) = FREE
  • Total was $4.57

Then at another store, I got - 

  • 4 Pantene Ice Shine/Aqua Light Sham/Cond $3.50 each, used two $3 off 2 coupons (2/26 SS) and got back two $2 UP's ($2 WYB 2, Limit 2 offers, weekly deal) and three* $1 UP's (mystery deal) = $1 or $0.25 each
  • Sally Hansen Quick Color Fast Dry Nail Polish Pen $2.07 - 75% clearance down from $8.29.  I've been wanting to try these for a while so I splurged.  I really like it!
  • Used $2 UP and two $1 UP's from first transaction, total was $7.38
*I had another two bottles to buy at this store so the cashier knew I was rolling my rewards.  I slyly handed her another card, she rang up my two bottles and scanned a $2 UP and two $1 UP's from my receipt, ripped them off and handed me back the rest.  Now that I'm looking at it, I got back a $2 UP and only ONE $1 UP.  So I'm not sure if she ripped off one too many UP's or if I only got back three $1 UP's.  Looking through some other folks posts on SD, it looks like you may only get back three $1 UP's when you buy four bottles. Still not a bad deal.

Finally (this was on a separate card from either transaction above)

  • 2 Pantene Ice Shine/Aqua Light Sham/Cond $3.50 each, used $3 off 2 coupon (2/26 SS) and got back $2 UP's ($2 WYB 2, Limit 2 offers, weekly deal) and two $1 UP's (mystery deal) = FREE
  • Used $2 UP and two $1 UP's, total was $0.57

Just emailed you the coupon. I didn't post your comment so your email would be hidden.

Thank you!

Thanks for the Pantene tip.
Looks like a good way to roll my colgate UPs from last week :)

I did the Huggies Deal. I got the first one. It said 3.49 on the shelf, so I figured I would try. It rang up 2.49 and I used my .50/1 q, making it 1.99 and I got $2 back. Went to the car, and talked my friend into doing it again This time I got two of them, and used the $2RR. Same thing...but had to buy a piece of candy b/c I had 3 coupons (including the RR) and needed 3 items. I paid 2.25 OOP, but got no RR back. I guess Walgreens saw that I used the $2RR and they don't roll? Not sure why I didn't get another one...but I have one more coupon left to use :) Will use that last one!

RR's never roll. That only works at CVS and Rite Aid.

I hadn't been to Wags since before Xmas. I went today and bought the Huggies Wipes and Burt's Bees cough drops. I didn't get the RR for the Huggies...guess I'll just return much for trying to get back in the game there...

frugalsuz said...

Connie - oh no, they must have fixed the glitch. Sorry about that!

Jenny said...

Hey- when you use DBF's card at Riteaid, do you have to keep your UPS separate? Or can you use them transferably? I am thinking about getting another card for my man but worried that it might be tooooo confusing!! Thanks

frugalsuz said...

For right now, the UP's are interchangeable. That's one of the best things about Rite Aid in my opinion. But that could change at any time. So what I do is write the initial of the person's card on the UP so if I ever have to keep track, I can.

slapping self in the forehead...that's why it didn't work...D'OH!

Jenny said...

Thanks for the advice! I was thinking that when great items are completely free and there is PLENTY in stock I would like to get more. :) That way I can share with my family members that could use the help and consider my time there even more valuable. :)
