the coolest thing happened at Walgreens today

I went over the Walgreens on E. Wellesley and Crestline today for a couple reasons, 1. It is close to my daughter's house, and I needed to drop off some stuff for her and 2. The cashier that usually works at the cosmetic counter is a coupon queen too and knows the best way to work it at Walgreens!

So, here is what I got:
  • 2 Vick's NyQuil $4.50 each = $9.00
  • 2 Herbal Essences shampoo @ $3.50 each = $7.00
  • 6 Hunts tomato sauce @ .80 cents each = $4.80
  • Tax = $1.39

Subtotal = $22.19


  • Walgreens in-ad store coupon for tomato sauce = $2.80

Subtotal = $19.39

Minus MFRs:

  • $1.00/3 x 2 Hunts Product PRINTABLE = $2.00
  • $1.50 MFR (11/1 P&G insert, exp 11/30) = $1.50
  • $1.00 MFR (11/1 P&G insert, exp 11/30) = $1.00

And...Here is where it gets cool :)

  • 1 B1G1 Free Herbal Essences (10/11 P&G insert, exp. 11/30) = $3.50
  • Free Herbal Essences product coupon from the FaceBook promo = $3.50!

I wasn't sure if using the B1G1 coupon with the free product coupon was going to work, and neither was the cashier so we were both pretty surprised when it did. And, it still gave me the RR for it as well, so I got paid $2.00 to buy 2 bottles of shampoo!

Subtotal for MFRs = 11.50

Total cash spent = $7.89

AND I got the $2.00 RR for buying 2 Herbal Essences and a $3.00 RR for buying 2 NyQuil!! That is like spending $2.89 for 2 bottles of Shampoo, 2 bottles of NyQuil, and 6 cans of tomato sauce.

Anyway, I think that's pretty cool :)

Leah - did you play the recession payback game http://www.recessionpayback.com/#/select ? You could print out 2-$1/3 Hunts tomato sauce coupons. Go get 6 more for free!

Leah, Great Job! I love to hear about people getting good deals. I can't believe I used to pay full price.

That is where I got the $1/3 coupons, can you actually print 4 per computer? I have to admit, I think the game is lame. I have 2 more coupons printed from a different computer, but I am hoping to score some cheap catsup. My husband puts it on everything.
