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.

A meh trip to Walgreens


Not a whole lot going on at Walgreens lately.  Hence the following unimpressive trip:

Transaction 1:

- Bought 2 Colgate Cavity Protection or Whitening Toothpaste, 8.2 oz., MaxClean, Fresh or White Toothpaste, 6 oz. 2/$5.00, regularly $3.49 each
Buy 2, Receive $3.00 Register Reward, Limit 1 per transaction
Used 2 $1.00/1 Colgate Toothpaste, 4 oz. or larger, from SS 3/25 (exp 4/14)
Paid $3.00, Received $3.00 Register Reward
Final Price: 2 Free

- Bought 1 Mini Stickerbook $0.34, regularly $0.69 (filler)
With in ad coupon, limit 6

- Used 1 $1.50/1 Register Reward from previous shopping trip


Paid $1.84 + $0.33 sales tax = $2.17, received $3.00 Register Reward


Transaction 2:


- Bought 6 Garnier Fructis Shampoo or Conditioner 2/$5.00, regularly $2.99 each
Spend $15.00, Receive $5.00 Register Reward, Limit 1 per transaction
Used 2 $1.00/1 Garnier Fructis Shampoo or Conditioner from RP 3/4
And used 4 $1.00/1 Garnier Fructis Shampoo or Conditioner from RP 4/1
Paid $9.00, Received $5.00 Register Reward
Final Price: $4.00 ($0.67 each) for 6

- Bought 1 Mini Stickerbook $0.34, regularly $0.69 (filler)
With in ad coupon, limit 6

- Used 1 $3.00/1 Register Reward from Transaction 1


Paid $6.34 + $0.93 sales tax = $7.27, received $5.00 Register Reward


Transaction 3:


- Bought 2 Blue Diamond Almonds, 6 oz. $3.79 each, regular price
Buy One Get One Free
Used 2 $1.00/1 Blue Diamond Almonds, 6 oz. or larger, from SS 1/29
Final Price: $1.79 ($0.89 each) for 2

- Bought 2 Reynolds Wrap Aluminum Foil, 70 sq. ft. $3.19 each, regularly $4.79 each
With in ad coupon, limit 2
Used 2 $1.50/1 Internet printable coupons (Coupons.com)
Final Price: $3.38 ($1.69 each) for 2

- Bought 1 Mini Stickerbook $0.34, regularly $0.69 (filler)
With in ad coupon, limit 6

- Used 1 $5.00/1 Register Reward from Transaction 2

Paid $0.51 + $0.41 sales tax = $0.92.

 $ 44.15  Shelf price
-   12.96  Discounts
-   13.00  Coupons
=  18.19  Out of pocket cost
-     8.00  Register Rewards received
=$10.19  76.9% savings off shelf price

What I actually paid: $18.19 - $1.50 in previous Register Rewards - $8.00 in this trip's Register Rewards + $1.67 sales tax = $10.36 paid out of pocket. Walked away with no register rewards. Hmmmm. If I wanted to I could make a clean break of Walgreens altogether...
