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.

My Planned Drugstore Shopping, Week of 3/4 UPDATED

Rite Aid is kicking ass this week! CVS, on the other hand... well, let's just be happy we're not in the test market, at least. Staples has some free paper (after rebates!) I'm always looking for free paper.  I'm honestly not 100% sure if you will get your full rebate amount back if you pay for the purchase with Staples rewards, so I just pay for them out of pocket to be safe.

Rite Aid:

Buy 8 Soft Lips Beeswax Lip Conditioner $1.99 each, regular price
Buy 2, Receive $3.00 +Up Rewards, Limit 4 (through Tuesday)
Use 5 $3.00/1 in-ad coupons (works best if you can use them all in one transaction - this will depend on your cashier)
Pay $0.92, Receive 4 $3.00 +Up Rewards
Final Price: $11.08 MONEYMAKER

OR

Buy 2 Soft Lips dual packs, $3.99 each, regular price
Buy 2, Receive $3.00 +Up Rewards, Limit 4 (through Tuesday)
 Use 2 $3.00/1 in-ad coupons
Pay $1.98, Receive $3.00 +Up Rewards
