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.

One Last Walgreens Trip This Week (Hopefully)...


Last time on As the WAGS Turns...

I left the store with a whopping 5 $6.00 register rewards from purchasing South Beach snack bars. Even though the bars were a moneymaker, I ended up spending more than I like to out of pocket getting them. So I came up with a few transactions that would cost me almost nothing out of pocket to make up for the overspending yesterday.

Transaction 1:

- Bought 1 Abrexin Weight Loss Supplement $10.00, Regularly $32.99
Buy 1, Receive $10.00 Register Reward, Limit 1 per Transaction 
Paid $10.00, Received $10.00 Register Reward
Final Price:  Free


- Bought 1 ThermaCare Single Pack Neck, Wrist & Shoulder, or Menstrual Heat Wrap $2.49, regularly $2.99
Buy 1, Receive $2.49 Register Reward, Limit 1 per Transaction
Paid $2.49, Received $2.49 (actually $2.50) Register Reward
Final Price:  Free

- Used 2 $6.00 Register Rewards (South Beach)

Paid $0.49, Received $10.00 Register Reward and $2.50 Register Reward

Transaction 2:

- Bought 1 Estroven PM $10.00, regularly $12.99
Buy 1, Receive $10.00 Register Reward, Limit 1 per Transaction

Final Price:  Free

- Bought 1 ThermaCare Single Pack Neck, Wrist & Shoulder, or Menstrual Heat Wrap $2.49, regularly $2.99
Buy 1, Receive $2.49 Register Reward, Limit 1 per Transaction
Paid $2.49, Received $2.49 (actually $2.50) Register Reward
Final Price:  Free

- Used 2 $6.00 Register Rewards (South Beach)

Paid $0.49, Received $10.00 Register Reward and $2.50 Register Reward

Transaction 3:

- Bought 1 South Beach Diet Snack or Meal Bars $5.99, regularly $8.99
Buy 1, Receive $5.99 Register Reward, Limit 1 per Transaction
Used 1 $1.00/1 Internet printable coupon
Paid $4.99, Received $5.99 (actually $6.00) Register Reward
Final Price:  $1.00 MONEYMAKER

- Bought 2 Reeses Heart candy, $0.50 each with in-ad coupon, regularly 2/$1.50 (fillers)
 
- Used 2 $2.50 Register Rewards from transactions 1 and 2

Paid $0.99 + $0.06 sales tax = $1.05, received $6.00 Register Reward

Transaction 4:

- Bought 1 Estroven PM $10.00, regularly $12.99
Buy 1, Receive $10.00 Register Reward, Limit 1 per Transaction 
Paid $10.00, Received $10.00 Register Reward
Final Price:  Free

- Used 1 $10.00 Register Reward from transaction 1

Paid $0.00, Received $10.00 Register Reward

$ 74.44  Shelf price
-  32.47   Discounts
-    1.00   Coupons
=$40.97  Out of pocket cost
-   41.00  Register Rewards received
=  $0.03 MONEYMAKER
+    0.06 Sales tax
=  $0.03

So in short, I spent $2.03 out of pocket today. I walked in with $30 in Register Rewards (5 $6s) and walked out with $32 in Rewards: 2 $10s and 2 $6s.
