I haven’t been to Walgreens in awhile, since I was waiting for my rebate gift card to arrive in the mail.
It got here about a month after I sent for it, and I had about $32 to use.
I did two transactions. The first I did so I could get a separate receipt to send for a manufacturer’s rebate.
1. I used a $1 off manuf. coupon and bought Orajel Advanced Tooth Desensitizer for $3.99. I don’t think I have a cavity, but I do have a painfully sensitive tooth. Next to that manuf. coupon is a form for a rebate of up to $7 off, so I’ll get my money back on that. I used my gift card to pay the initial balance.
2. I bought the free-after-rebate Jane “Be Pure” mineral cosmetics. There’s an online printable coupon for $2 when you sign up for their e-newsletter. Use the coupon, and you’ll get paid to take the product. Sadly, I forgot to bring mine with me. Oh well, it’s still free.
3. Pert Plus is on sale for $3.49 and you’ll get a $2.50 back rebate. I had a $1 off manuf. coupon, so that makes the shampoo free once I get my rebate.
4. I used my $3 off Keri Renewal lotion manuf. coupon and bought the 4 oz. serum. That stuff is regularly priced at $14.99. Somewhat insane, I think. The rebate on that is $10, so I paid $1.99 for it, essentially.
The cashier gave me a free sample of Britney Spears’ “Curious” perfume. Lol.
If I had no coupons or rebates and paid regular price, I would have spent $29.46 today. After coupons, that’s $24.46, and after store and manuf. rebates, that’s $1.98.
But wait! There’s more!
I’ll have them put my rebate on my gift card instead of having them send me a check. This will earn me an extra 10%. Ten percent of the $18.49 in Walgreens rebates means I’ll get an extra $1.84 back.
There’s some other deals going on that I might get later this week, for example, Glade Holiday candles will generate $1-3 in rebates (depending on the type) and I also have some coupons to use with them. But, I have tons of candles, and since they won’t be free, I might pass on it.
What deals have you found at Walgreens?
Big Lots Stores (also called Odd Lots)!! Scour the grocery isles. I’ve gotten everything 69cent Chef B Dee pasta [a bargain in our area] for my kids to all kinds of other stuff–exotics like wonderful canned mango [they are begging for this–wish a store carried it here] to cereal [a treat] and other stuff! Check it out!
