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.

Got the 20% Gold Discount? Then it gets more complicated. Here's what I did:

Bought 14 Nivea Lip Balms $2.39 each, regularly $2.99 each
With 20% Gold Discount (sale price $2.50 each)
Spend $15.00, Receive $5.00 +Up Reward through 10/30, Limit 4 (monthly deal)
Used 7 $3.00/2 Nivea Lip Care Stick, 0.17 oz or Tube, 0.3 oz from RP 10/21
Paid $12.46, Received 2 $5.00 +Up Rewards
Final Price: $2.46 ($0.18 each) for 14

$ 41.86 Shelf price
- 21.00 Coupons
- 8.40 Discounts
=$12.46 Out of pocket cost
- 10.00 +Up Rewards received
=$ 2.46 94.1% savings off shelf price

What I actually paid: $12.46 - $12.00 in previous +Up Rewards + $2.01 sales tax = $2.47 paid out of pocket. Walked away with $10.00 in new +Up Rewards.
