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.

Moneymaker deals at CVS and Rite Aid!
Some more deals have popped up at CVS and Rite Aid! WARNING: The moneymaker Schick gel is a fluke; it could be fixed at any time. And it's only working on the sensitive variety; the regular one will only give you $2.00 Extra Bucks each. Also, the Poise and Revlon deals produce overage that will need to be absorbed by another item for your transaction to go smoothly. Good luck!
Bought 2 Schick Hydro Sensitive Shave Gel $4.39 each, regular price
Buy 1, Receive $4.00 Extra Bucks, Limit 2 (this appears to be the same deal as the Schick disposable razor deal)
Used 2 $0.75/1 manufacturer coupons from SS 2/24
Paid $7.28, Received $8.00 Extra Bucks
Final Price: $0.72 MONEYMAKER (woulda been $2.48 MONEYMAKER with 20% CVS coupon)
Bought 1 Poise Body Cooling Towelettes 20 ct $3.99, regularly $5.49
Buy 1, Receive $1.00 Extra Buck, Limit 1

And used 1 $3.00/1 CVS printable coupon (CVSSavingsCentral.com)

Also received a $1.00 Green Bag Tag Reward! Hear those are going away soon. Sad.
What I actually paid: $7.27 - $6.49 previously earned Extra Bucks + $0.38 sales tax = $1.16 paid out of pocket. Walked away with $9.00 new Extra Bucks + $1.00 Green Bag Tag Reward (latter not counted toward percentage savings since it was earned in more than one trip).
