Report on the Arm & Hammer spin brushes:
I bought 6 which cost $22.47 (I was going to get my way toothpaste-but both stores have been out & occurred to me this could work also) and got two $5 +ups (bought 4 first-got 5 up, then finished up with two more today & did get another $5 up-even though there is no report on the bottom of the slip-it is tracking).
So another $3 off with 3-$1 coupons. On the rebate you can either get $5/5 or buy a few more (& you have until 1/31/12 to finish it) & can get $10/8-so an even better deal. Also they will make cute Xmas presents for kids-you decorate them yourself.

I can’t find the aveeno coupons in my 10/30 SS from the Oregonian. Anyone know if they weren’t included?

Lacey December 18, 2011 at 5:38 pm

Just an FYI i was super excited to do the airwick candle deal but also use the buy 2 get 1 3oz free coupon along with the $1/1 coupon, but they didnt ring up as b1g1. The manager came over with the 5.2 size and said thats the one for the sale…really misleading the ad was…i even pointed out it had no size restriction on the ad and he just shrugged. So dont rush out for just that deal, its a no go. :(

Reply

kris December 19, 2011 at 2:24 pm

i in fact got a great deal on the candles, but they were 5.99(b1g1), i got 6, used 2 B2G2 and 2 $3/2, was an awesome deal,they actually paid me 1 cent for the 6

Reply

Lacey December 19, 2011 at 3:38 pm

I was talking about the posted deal on here for the 3oz ones you got the larger candles that were located with ALL the fragrances and candles other then the 3 oz ones they were hidden on the other side of the store on an end cap and these ones were not part of the sale.

Reply

Lacey December 19, 2011 at 3:43 pm

BTW kris where did you get those coupons? i’ve been having a hard time locating airwick coupons. Good job! itleast you were able to make something of the deal :D oh and i even tried looking up airwick on this coupon database and nothing came up?

Reply

kris December 19, 2011 at 8:38 pm

it was in a SS in november i think but i live in New Hampshire we get different coupons then West coast if your there.

Jan December 18, 2011 at 2:47 pm

The Mentos UP2U gum is generating a $1 +UP WYB 2. So a $1 moneymaker on two!

Reply

charolyn December 17, 2011 at 6:54 pm

I checked out the Soft Lips ($4 +up when you buy 2) tip a reader commented on today & they were out of the ones around $2 which makes it a MM (with $1/2 coupon from 10/16 SS) it lasts until early in Jan-so there is time to get it yet!

Reply

Beth December 17, 2011 at 10:13 pm

But, the coupon expires 12/31.

Reply

charolyn December 18, 2011 at 9:37 am

That still gives us two weeks to find them!

Jerrilynn December 18, 2011 at 12:20 am

I could only find 2 packs for 3.99 (with cough drops). Where do they keep the singles? Thanks!

Reply

kris December 18, 2011 at 8:48 am

found mine on a pegboard by the registers

Reply

charolyn December 18, 2011 at 9:37 am

I saw them on a narrow side display-by the face cream-at the end of the aisle. I did notice the main area (above the cough drops) didn’t have the single packs-only this side display.

Reply

charolyn December 22, 2011 at 5:00 pm

I have been to two stores now & the main area above the cough drops has the double pack-the single & also more double packs are on a side display- two different areas of the two stores.
both were out of the single packs-but this week the double packs are on sale for 2.99, so with the $1 coupon & $4 up/2 they are only $1 for two=4 items!!

charolyn December 16, 2011 at 10:31 pm

Looking through inserts today & in the 12/11 SS found a rebate for spinbrush, arm & hammer, & orajel products!
need to buy at least 2 arm & hammer spinbrush-then any of the other items (including the spinbrush) work:
buy 2 get $2, 3 -$3, 5 -$5, and 8- $10! between 10/1 & 1/31/2012
Alert your local stores!

Reply

Melody December 17, 2011 at 6:13 am

That’s fantastic! So if I’m understanding the rebate right, if you did the scenario I listed above, you would get a $3 rebate? That would make each item just $.12 each! I don’t think we got that rebate form in our area, I’ll have to check.

Reply

stephanie December 17, 2011 at 9:05 am

I have seen them on a display at Walmart.

Reply

charolyn December 17, 2011 at 9:18 am

I will mail you one if you don’t have it.

Reply

charolyn December 18, 2011 at 9:39 am

Just thinking again-if you can find 8 items & do your scenario twice it would be a MM!

Reply

Tiffany December 21, 2011 at 3:26 pm

I got the rebate in my Oregonian!

Peta December 16, 2011 at 8:23 pm

I just finished my shopping for this week & am pretty happy as my store got more Centrum in today (sunset esplande Hillsboro-Yvonne who orders is the BEST)-only needed to buy 3 to get my $10 Diabetic + Up (this store was .30 higher in price, which worked to my favor as it just put me at the right amount with my 20% discount-also I already had money towards it). Got more +ups than I spent & with the SCR made money also.
So then I only needed $10 to get the seasons of saving $10 +up-looked at the ad & got 3 of the metal die cars (pull back & they go automatically-larger than matchbox-on their own display unit)-PLUS with $10 of these you get a $3 +up also-so 3 were about $11.50-spent another $1.15 and only had to pay .11 OOP with $12.50 in +ups!!
AND have free toys to donate. A great day all around:-)

Melody December 16, 2011 at 8:20 pm

I went in yesterday to get prices for this coming week and took my Centrum coupons just in case, but NEVER expecting to find any. I found 4! I was so shocked, I also found the Revlon items. I never made the effort to go in as we were out of town all weekend and I figured I missed out. I’m going to pick up a few packs of diapers tomorrow to get me over the $50 for the Season of Savings, so excited!

Reply

charolyn December 16, 2011 at 10:25 pm

I found it exciting also-glad you got in on it also. I wasn’t too sure, as even if they order, the warehouse doesn’t always have it to send.

Reply

Savannah A. December 17, 2011 at 2:21 pm

That is the location I shop!!! Yvonne is the BEST!!! That is only Rite Aid I will go to.

charolyn December 17, 2011 at 6:50 pm

We have probably seen each other shopping before! I am usually there several times a week as it is close to my house.
