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, 6/22/14



This week Rite Aid rules, CVS and Walgreen drool. Skip the last two, run to the first!

Rite Aid:

Bought 3 Bayer Low Dose Aspirin 81 mg, 32-36 ct $3.29 each, regular price
Buy Two Get One Free
Bought 1 Bayer Low Dose Aspirin 81 mg, 32-36 ct $2.63, regularly $3.29

or 4 $2.00/1 Bayer Aspirin Product, 20 ct or larger from RP 6/15
Paid $1.21, Received 2 $4.00 +Up Rewards
Final Price: $6.79 MONEYMAKER

*This deal is a moneymaker even with several lesser coupons. Out of the $4/2 and $2/1 coupons? There's a $1.50/1 coupon in the SS 5/4, and a $1/1 coupon at Coupons.com. Also, if the store is out of yellow boxes, look for orange or pink boxes - the chewables (what I bought) are the same price as the yellow box.*

Used 2 $1.00/1 Air Wick Scented Oil Starter Kit or Gadget Only Pack from SS 6/8
Final Price: $0.15 MONEYMAKER (applied to rest of transaction)

*Theoretically you would only have to buy 1 for each coupon you use (just make sure you have enough in your transaction to absorb the overage). I opted to buy the most possible while still getting them for free, just to make my transaction go a bit smoother (some cashiers might balk at the low price vs. coupon value difference.)
