Mike and I are all for a sale. We rarely pay retail for anything, well, groceries we pay retail...but not anymore!!! Ok, so here's my first attempt at getting the most for as little as possible OOP (out of pocket)
Ok, I thought I failed because the way I worked it out in my head and on paper before I went to Walgreens, did not happen exactly as planned...looking back and breaking it down...I didn't do too bad for my first attempt.
They didn't have the vitamins I was looking for and I was counting on the $5 RR to use towards the next purchase...so I was frazzled from the start. I checked out in the cosmetic counter and the lady there was very kind and patient!
1. Kotex - $3.49 - $1 MFGC = $2.49 + $2.49 RR (rapid rewards - money to use next purchase) OK, so I was OOP $2.49 for this transaction
2. Glade Air Fresheners $2.50 x 3 = $7.50 - $2/3 MFGC = $5.50 - $5 mail in rebate
Kotex - $3.49 - $1 MFGC = $2.49 + $2.49 RR
Bix Hybrid $4.99 - $3 MFGC - $1 SC = $ .99
I didn't have enough items/per coupon ratio...so I had to grab a 'filler' bag of nuts.
Total = $11.42 - $5 RR (from pervious transaction for medicine for Mike) = $6.42 - once I mail in rebate TOTAL = $1.42
So I spent approx. $4 - not the SCORE I was looking for, but not bad. I also ended up with 2 RR @ $2.49 each and Mike wanted chips...I was able to get two bags of chips for $1.42...
