walgreens paid me to take home conditioner

I had a very successful lunchtime run to Wal-Greens and CVS today. Let’s begin with Wal-Greens, which is where I began my saving spree. I forgot my handy dandy list so I grabbed a weekly flyer and the March coupon book to guide me.

I didn’t need any help finding the huge endcap of Granier Fructis shampoos and conditioners though! They’re on sale for $2.99 and there’s a $2 off store coupon in the March coupon booklet. PLUS, I had two coupons, each for $1 off a shampoo or conditioner. I also snagged a bottle of Garnier Fructis spray gel that was good in the sale as well and used a $1 off coupon for a Garnier Fructis styling product. $2.99 – $2.00 (store coupon) = $.99 – $1.00 (manufacturers coupon) = 2 bottles of free conditioner and a bottle of free spray gel for ME! My next stop was the toothpaste aisle. Crest Pro-Health is on sale for $2.49 – Register Rewards* Good on Next Purchase $1 = Like Paying $1.49…except that I had a $.75 coupon so I paid $.74!

Still browsing toothpaste I spotted the Colgate Total Advanced on sale for $3.49 with a $2.50 off store coupon in the March Easy Saver Catalog. $3.49 – $2.50 = $.99 and I had a $1.00 off coupon, so not to be outdone by CVS….Wal-Greens paid me a penny to take home toothpaste.

My out of pocket total at Wal-Greens this afternoon was $2.68, and $.98 of that is tax! I also earned a $1 RR for next time.

Onward to CVS, where my savings weren’t as huge but I did use several ExtraCare Bucks I had accumulated over the past few weeks. I got:

4 Coke 12-packs – on sale for 4/$13 with $3 in ECB back
3 boxes of Cinnamin Toast Crunch – on sale for 3 for $10 with $5 in ECB back, plus I had a $1 off coupon
1 Big Red Gum in the new slim pack – coupon for a free package!
1 bottle of Palmolive dish soap – on sale for $1.49 with $1 in ECB back
1 Secret Flawless deoderant – on sale for $3.99 with $1 in ECB back plus I had a $2 off coupon
I used $17.98 in ECB I had previously earned and my total out of pocket was $7.60 including tax, plus I earned $10 in ECB!
