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 Massive Sunday Haul, 1/27/13



It looks like Walgreens is having two decent weeks in a row for once, so I actually walked away with some Register Rewards this time. Didn't really care for any of the other deals there this week. Things are still pretty slow at CVS. Rite Aid was a bit better. Free body wash and moneymaker air freshener (well, not anymore after Sunday), yay! I went ahead and did the P&G deal there as next week's ad looks a bit grim. And I had anniversary rewards to use up!

Here's what I did:

CVS:

Bought 4 ThermaCare Heatwraps (excludes 1 ct) $4.99 each, regularly $7.49 each
Buy 2, Receive $4.00 Extra Bucks, Limit 1 at least 2 (Bought 2 on 2 separate Extra Care cards)
Buy 3, Submit for $6.00 Rebate from RP 1/27
Used 2 $3.00/1 ThermaCare Product Internet printable coupons (Thermacare.com)
And used 2 $2.00/1 manufacturer coupons from RP 12/9
Paid $9.96, Received 2 $4.00 Extra Bucks and Submitted for $6.00 Rebate
Final Price: $4.04 MONEYMAKER

*I went ahead and split this into two transactions on different cards, but it turns out that the limit is more than 1! So you should do this on one receipt if possible to ensure you'll qualify for the rebate. With Pfizer it's always unclear whether you can submit multiple receipts. I think it'll be fine but I'm not certain.*

Bought 4 Tresemme Shampoo/Conditioner, 32 oz $3.50 each, regularly $5.49 each
Used 2 BOGO Free TRESemme Shampoo or Conditioner, excludes trial size and styling products, up to $6.00 from RP 1/27 (took off $6.00 each)
