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, 3/17/2013



Didn't make it to Walgreen today. Hoping to get a prescription transfer gift card later this week to ease up the out of pocket cost a bit. Walgreens can be so expensive to shop at!

ANYWHO, here's what I did today: 

Staples:

Bought 2 Hammermill CopyPlus Paper, ream $6.99 each, regular price
Buy 1, Submit for $6.99 Easy Rebate, Limit 2

Paid $12.99, Will Receive $12.99-$13.99 in Easy Rewards

*I bought the paper in the same transaction, so hard to say whether they'd discount my coupon from the rewards I'll earn. After all, they don't know which item the coupon was for!*

=$26.97  Out of pocket cost
