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 9/9 UPDATED

Nothing really going on at Target and Staples this week.

Rite Aid:

Buy 12 Wet 'n Wild Nail Polish $0.99 each, regular price
BOGO 50%
Spend $8.00, Receive $3.00 +Up Reward, Limit 2

Use 12 $1.00/1 manufacturer coupons from RP 9/9
Pay -$3.12 (applied to rest of transaction), Receive $3.00 +Up Reward
Final Price: $6.12 MONEYMAKER

Buy 2 Samy Hair Color $9.99 each, regular price
BOGO Free
Use 2 $5.00/1 Internet printable PDF coupons (SamySalon.com; Facebook.com)
And use 2 $2.00/1 August Adperk coupons (no longer available to print)
Final Price: $4.01 MONEYMAKER (applied to rest of transaction)

*A quick reminder about Rite Aid's coupon policy: Technically it does not allow two coupons to be used on BOGO Free sales. However, stores can be more generous than the policy allows, and the stores at which I shop are almost always such. If one is not, I just don't buy those items and go to another store to get them instead. Problem solved. Oh, and they also don't have to allow overage on coupons (see, e.g., the Wet 'n Wild and Samy deals). But they usually do because it's easier than rounding them down. Just make sure your transaction is large enough to absorb the overage.*
