Welcome to an irreverent, not-at-all comprehensive blog about my couponing exploits in Montgomery County, Maryland, with some annoying cats sprinkled about. Try not to step on them; they get ever so cross. Also there may be some law stuff here and there, but not too much, because most law stuff is boring.

CVS Glade Sense & Spray deal made better by new coupons; now 17 cents each!

This is Buffy. Buffy is a cat/squirrel/mouse hybrid who escaped from a Johns Hopkins laboratory and assimilated into a litter of kittens I took in from my backyard in Baltimore four years ago. THIS IS ALL TRUE. She even squeaks like a mouse. I'm It's insane.

So today Glade released new coupons on Coupons.com that are even better than the ones in the newspaper: $3.50/1 instead of $3.00/1. Also it had been reported that Carmex Moisture Plus lip balm was on sale for $1.50 or less, and a coupon printed out for some people last week from the magic coupon machine taking $1.50 off the purchase price, making them free! So I took the fiance's card (since the Glade deal is limit one per card and I had already done it yesterday), and did the deal.

Alas I did not get another $3/2 CVS coupon for the Glade, but it's still a pretty good deal even without it being a moneymaker this time. But it turned out the Carmex was on sale for $1.19, making it a moneymaker after CVS coupon!

Bought 3 Glade Sense & Spray, 0.43 oz  Starter Kits, $5.00 each, regularly $11.49 each
Spend $12.00, Receive $4.00 Extra Bucks when you Purchase Select Glade or Oust Products, Limit 1
Used 3 $3.50/1 Glade Sense & Spray Starter Kit (Coupons.com) 
Paid $4.50, Received $4.00 Extra Bucks
Final Price: $0.50 ($0.17 each) for 3

Bought 1 Carmex Moisture Plus lip balm, $1.19, regularly $3.39
Used 1 $1.50/1 CVS coupon from the magic coupon machine (printed last week - save those coupons!)
Final Price: $0.31 overage!

$37.86  Shelf Price
-21.67   Discounts
-12.00   Coupons
= 4.19   Total cost out of pocket
-  4.00   Extra Bucks received
=  0.19  (99.5% savings!)

What I actually paid: $4.19 - $4.19 Extra Bucks (one rounded down 5 cents) + $0.97 tax - $0.97 paid with gift card received yesterday = $0 paid out of pocket. Walked away with $5 Extra Bucks and remaining balance of $6.38 left on gift card.
