I hit Walgreens again today…TWICE! I haven’t done this much Walgreens shopping in weeks. It helps that I have my dad here to chauffeur me around.
I wanted to get one last crack at this week’s great deals. My store was out of most sale items.
As with most of you, the Ritz beeped and my cashier had to push the coupon through. I obviously hit the clearance bin — for $1.75, I have three birthday presents (yes, I am cheap when it comes to little kids birthdays). The bandages were clearanced to $1.
I paid $4.43 and received a $2 Register Rewards for the Vaseline. I got a raincheck for the Reach toothbrushes.
The most profitable part of the trip was finding out that my Walgreens starts the weekly sales on Saturday evening, not Sunday morning. I decided to take my chances and try out the deals that start tomorrow, tonight.
Here’s what I found out: the sale prices work on Saturday night, but the Register Rewards don’t print. So the Huggies deal did not work for me. Of course, the manager blamed it on the coupons, but my favorite cashier in the world & I figure it’s because the catalina machine won’t start printing the RRs until tomorrow.
I paid $4.11 and received another $2 Register Rewards for the Vaseline. Seriously. As I said in grade school, “Totally awesome.”
I made $8 on the 4 Glade Sense & Sprays, $.51 on the Colgate, got the Garnier for free, paid $1.19 for the Vaseline and $10 for 4 Jumbo packs of diapers.
Which reminds me to declare THE PRESCRIPTION SAVINGS BOOKLETS ARE BACK!
Yes, I meant to shout. Go to the pharmacy and ask for your booklet as soon as possible. There are $2/1 Walgreens diapers coupons. Combine this coupon with a good sale and you can get super cheap diapers.
One more thing to note: at least at my Walgreens, there were only about 10 packages of Gentle Care diapers on the shelves. I suggest you hit Walgreens early tomorrow if you really have your heart set on getting these.
You can also use the $5/1 coupon on $5.99 Gentle Care wipes at Target. You’ll get the bigger bag for $.99. The $5.99 price is confirmed at the Clackamas Target.
