My WAG and RA deals!

This week is fantastic at Walgreens and Rite-Aid!

This first picture is what I bought at Rite-Aid. Total, I made a PROFIT of $11! =) (retail 56.96)
(the "Soothe" eye drops are different from what's pictured in the ad and the rebate catalog, but the manager assured me the numbers were the same and it would qualify - we'll see! If so, that's great because I had a $3 coupon for it! UPDATE: it did go through!)

This is my loot from Walgreens - final price .16 cents (retail of 93.53)!!

Awesome huh? They were out of a couple things that would make it even better - I'm going to go again after their weekly truck comes in.

Here's a couple notes that are different than the original post......
(These clearance items of course are YMMV. They may or may not be clearanced at your store, but keep an eye out. Combining a coupon with clearance with a rebate or register reward = awesome deals!!)


Moneymaker on Dove Deodorant/Soap!! Even better!
I mentioned in my original WAG weekly deals post about the Dove soap moneymaker (buy 8 @ .99/ea. for a total of $7.92, get $10 RR) which is fantastic already, but I found out that it also applies to Dove deodorant - even the trial size!! (I've heard that the trial size soaps are qualifying for the RR also - and you can use any combo of those products you like)
They are regularly priced at .99 cents (or $1.19), no coupon needed! But, if you have $1.50/2 Dove deodorant coupon (1/18 RP insert), it doesn't exclude trial sizes - so the deal's even better.
So, buy 8 at .99 each, use 4 $1.50/2 manQ = $1.92 + tax. Then you'll get the $10 Register Reward
= $8.08 PROFIT!! ("only" $2 profit if you have no coupons, lol)
(this deal is a fantastic one to get supplies for your local homeless shelter or pregnancy center!!)

I found the Serenity (Extra Large, 12 pair) clearanced for $3.59
- $5 rebate
= $1.41 OVERAGE!

Jack's frozen pizza was clearanced ~ .87 cents

Tombstone frozen pizza ~ $1.29

Children's Watermelon Pepto-Bismol Tablets (24ct.) on clearance ~ $1.59
(My WAG - Henry and Sherman - didn't even appear to carry the watermelon flavor, so I didn't have this, but yours might)
- $8 Register Reward wyb 3

= FREE, plus a $3+ moneymaker!

Nutripals Fruit Bars (6 pack) on clearance ~ 2.69
- $2 manQ (1/11 SS)
- $2 WAG coupon from the
Walgreens coloring book
FREE, plus a $1.31 profit!
(thanks HipToSave for these two!)

I can't believe I forgot the Starbucks chocolate deal!! I think it's the same as last month:
Starbucks chocolate ~ 2/$10
- $6/2 ESQ
- 2 $1/1 coupons on packaging, tearpad or blinkies if available (I found a blinkie machine at WAG, and a tearpad at Meijer)
$1-2 each
(FYI - I did it tonight and also tried to get the free frappuccino drink they offered last month, and it didn't ring up free)

Gillette trial size body wash ~ .99
- $2/1 body wash (3/1 P&G)
- $2/2 any antiperspirant or body wash (2/8f P&G)

Daisy Fuentes shampoo and conditioners ~ $7.99

= $2.99 each

Yes To Carrots organic
lip butter is on sale 2/$5
- use
this printable coupon for $2/1
= .50
(I couldn't get a coupon to print just now at that link - but I've already printed one before, so it might be because of that). Or try
this link - it might work, might not - sorry!

Good deal on Clorox products

This is so cool! I am on a mission to learn how to start saving money too.
Any help (tips) would be appreciated:)
I have a mommy message board I would love to invite ya too. Maybe you can share some tips with us in our coupon section. Or just post stories like this to help keep us motivated to try and save money.
