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.

The Tiniest of Walgreens Trips...

Today while rummaging through my coupons I discovered two additional $3.00 Tylenol Precise coupons that I forgot I printed. DOH! So another trip to Walgreens was OF COURSE in order.

This was a simple trip: I brought into the store two $3.00 coupons for the Precise, as well as two $4.00 Register Rewards I received earlier in the week from buying Colgate Total.

Transactions 1 and 2 (rinse, repeat):

- Bought 1 Tylenol Precise Pain Cream or Heat Patches $5.99, regularly $8.99
Buy 1, Receive $3.00 Register Reward, Limit 1 per transaction
Used $3.00/1 – Tylenol Precise Product – (walmart.com)
Paid $2.99, Received $3.00 Register Reward
Final Price:  FREE

- Bought 1 Syntha-6 Meal Replacement Bar $1.89, regularly $1.99
Buy 1, Receive $1.89 Register Reward, Limit 1 per transaction
Paid $1.89, Receive $1.89 (really $2.00) Register Reward
Final Price:  FREE

- Used 1 $4.00 Register Reward

Paid $0.88, Received $3.00 Register Reward and $2.00 Register Reward

$21.96  Shelf Price
-  6.20  Discounts
-  6.00  Manufacturer coupons
= 9.76  Out of pocket cost
-10.00  Register Rewards received
=$0.24 Moneymaker

What I actually paid: I walked in with two $3.00 manufacturer coupons and $8.00 in Register Rewards, and I walked out with four products and $10.00 in Register Rewards. Paid $1.76 out of pocket. Plus I'm totally ready for my next workout! (HA!)
