Well, I got back from the Big Town, and I am tired but happy! The dr. appt. went just fine, and I found some awesome deals at Walgreens.
They have Dawn dish soap 10.3oz on sale for $.99, limit 2, and I had two $.50 coupons. So, I snagged 2 of those for $1.00 (plus tax). Then, I saw in the ad where they had JIF peanut butter 18 oz (my favorite) or smuckers 20 oz $3.29 as a bogo, limit 2. In my cart went those!! Also, they have a Tresemme hair care products deal going on where you buy 3/$12.00 and get $5.00 back in RR (register rewards).
Sometimes, I am leery of the RRs, because they don't always print out! Well, the deal went thru just fine, and now I have $5.00 to spend when I go back for my next dr. appt. this Friday. That'll be another dr./shopping day. I try to find the silver lining on dark clouds whenever I can! :):)
So, to recap the deal:
(2) Dawn dish soap $ 1.00
(3) Tresemme shampoo $12.00
(2) JIF peanut butter $3.29
TOTAL $11.29 plus tax (paid for it with my Walgreens Gift Card)
SO, total out-of-pocket (OP) was ZERO!!
YAY for Walgreens and RRs!! :)
If you have a Walgreens nearby, stop in and check it out for yourself! The sales fliers are usually by the front door; they have some pretty decent Walgreen coupons to clip and use. Those are located in various spots in the flyer. You can combine the Walgreen coupon with a manufacturer coupon; this way, you can increase your savings. That is what I did with the Dawn dish soap deal. Just be sure to give them the manufacturer coupon first, then the Walgreens coupons. Otherwise, the register will "beep" and not take your coupon.
