[singlepic=40,320,240,,] I just got back from a trip to Walgreen’s. I needed a 9v battery, so I decided to go there and take advantage of some sales going on.
-Walgreen’s brand 9v battery $3.49
–Glade Scented Oil Candles $6.79, I had a $4 off coupon, and I will get a $3 store rebate (earning me $0.21). [Offer # 53 in the Walgreen’s rebate booklet]
–Glade Scented Oil Candles refills–3 pack. $2.50 on sale, but I had a $3 off coupon, and it will also generate a
$3 rebate (same offer number as above). Whoops, I looked at this wrong. This is actually for offer # 54, so that means it just generates a $1 rebate. So, it earned me $1.50.
–Glade 2-in-1 candle–I couldn’t resist. It smells delicious! $2.50, an I had a $1 off coupon. It will generate $1 in rebates, so a final cost is $0.50. [Offer #54]
–Energizer recharger pack with 2 AA rechargeable batteries on sale for $9.99 and will generate $10 in rebates, so that’s free after rebate. Limit 1. [Offer # 28 in rebate booklet]
-In my store’s shampoo aisle, there were lots of clearance priced items (with orange tags on them). I can use coupons on these, so I rifled through my coupon file to see if I had anything that would make a product free or almost free.
Two types of Garnier Fructis hair styling products were $1.09 each on clearance. I had two $1 off coupons, so I got the hair care for $0.09 each.
While in the shampoo aisle, I saw a woman reach for a bottle of Selsun Blue. I had two $2 off coupons for that, so I gave them to her. She was surprised, but I do that every chance I get. I love helping people save money, plus maybe they’ll consider using coupons themselves.
Anyway, final cost before coupons: $27.45.
I used $10 in manufacturer’s coupons (detailed above), bringing that to $17.45.
There was $1.92 in sales tax, bumping it up to $19.37.
I had $6.24 on my Walgreen’s gift card (that I got from October’s rebate period), so I used that to bring my total to $13.13. I paid this out of pocket.
This trip, I earned $15 back in rebates. I will have them put it on my Walgreen’s gift card (a step that will earn me 10% extra), so total rebates earned for this trip will be $16.50.
