I wanted to do the $5 Mid Week Money Maker Ibotta Bonus Rebate which ends today (9/2) and the $14.04 Money Maker Compeed Advanced Blister Care at Rite Aid got me going because I had already done the $10.02 Money Maker NeoThotics Heel Cushions Money Maker and I had $30 Bonus Cash sitting in my Rite Aid account so I knew I wouldn’t have any out of pocket doing the Compeed deal.
CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid and Sprouts are all in my neighborhood but I did get on the freeway to go to Walmart and Dollar Tree. The Crest rebates had reset for me but CVS didn’t have anymore Crest Brilliance so I got that at Walgreens and used my Balance Rewards to lessen my out of pocket. My actual out of pocket was less than $5 because I used my PayPal debit card, Store Rewards and a Walmart gift card.
Dollar Tree $2
Rite Aid 21.96
Sprouts – Got back $6 IB
Dollar Tree – Got back $1 IB
Rite Aid – Got back $16 BC and $20 IB
Walgreens – Got back $6 IB
CVS – Got Back $8 ECB and $12 IB
Walmart – Got Back $5 eGift Card and $8.10 IB
Earned $5 Bonus
After Store Rewards and Ibotta rebates everything was FREE + $6.40 Money Maker!!!
I REALLY screwed up at Walgreens because I should have waited until Wednesday to see if the Crest would reset again and bought a Brilliance and Detox or Whitening Therapy because only (1) $3 off coupon came off on my receipt. I made the fatal mistake of using Balance Rewards points on a Spend X get X so I didn’t get back the 5,000 points. We all make mistakes and we cannot agonize over it, we have to just move onto the next deal!
Rite Aid has some cold and flu medicines on 75% off clearance which is right on time for the upcoming cold and flu season!!! Of course, you may have to go to several Rite Aid stores because not all do their markdowns at the same time. Also, check the dates on the packages. For example, the NyQuil Cough 12 oz was on clearance for $2.99 with an expiration date of 2022.
The Mucinex Nightshift and the Mucinex Fast-Max are on clearance for $4.24.
The Coricidin High Blood Pressure Maximum Strength Flu is on clearance for $2.62.
The Robitussin Cold & Flu is on clearance for $1.94.
Children’s Tylenol Cold, Cough and Runny Nose is on clearance for $2.37.
Cold-Eze lozenges are on clearance for $1.99.
Rite Aid cough drops on clearance for $0.42.
Dove body wash on clearance for $1.74 and you can submit your receipt for 1,250 ($1.25) Fetch Rewards points.
I grabbed the NyQuil, Mucinex and the Dove for less than $10!
While I was out and about I had read that the Vitacup coffee in Genius Blend was on clearance for $2.24 and there’s a $3 Ibotta rebate which would make the coffee FREE + a $0.76 Money Maker but the store that I went into only had the Breakfast Blend but as you can see the picture that they the Folgers K-Cups on clearance for $2.62!!!
I grabbed the four they had on clearance and then headed off to another Rite Aid where they also had the Folgers K-Cups on clearance for the same price!!!
Also, you’ll want to walk around the food aisle because I saw lots of food items on 50% to 75% on clearance. In fact, I found the Big Win Chopped Onions for $0.32 so I grabbed that, too! I would have bought a couple more but it was the only one the shelf.
I also went by Whole Foods and the shelf was practically cleared out but I was able to get the Evolution Fresh orange juice and the watermelon juice and they are on sale 2/$7 and I used my Prime discount and got back 1,200 points from SwagBucks which makes the purchase an $8 Money Maker (thanks, Tammy!)!!!!!
Also, the So Delicious coconut milk yogurt is on sale for 2/$3 and there’s a $1.99/2 Ibotta rebate that makes the yogurts about $0.50 each!
I mentioned in my Plotting and Planning post that I had forgotten to stock up on bottled water and there was not bottled water to be found in my area.
On Sunday, I look at Instagram on my computer and I swear that the very first post I see is a local San Diego couponer saying that she’d found a pallet of water at the Food 4 Less and it was a Food 4 Less that I’d never visited in the middle of the hood. I grabbed my keys and zoomed over there and I got to Food 4 Less, the pallet was almost gone and they was only letting us have 2 waters per household. Also, as I was leaving, there was now a line to get inside the store.
If do not have the Instagram app, you need to get it because you find couponer that specific to your area by using hashtags and following them. Hashtags that I look for is #sandiegocoupon #sdcoupon #ibotta #walgreens #cvsdeals #walmart #checkout51 #couponing #free #freefood. If you are in Sacramento #saccouponer or Seattle #seattlecouponers #neworleanscouponers #orangecountycouponer #orlandocouponers, etc. If you don’t see at least 1,,000 tweets for that particular hashtag than expand your search. There is a hashtag for #northparkcouponer but it only has two post so I expanded my search to #sandiegocouponer because North Park is a neighborhood in the city of San Diego.
On Sunday, I also went to Rite Aid. I wanted the Reese’s Single Serve Candy Bar for $0.33, FREE Russell Stover Easter Single and the Pataday allergy relief eye drops which is a brand new eye product. I had itchy eyes on Sunday, I put a drop into each eye and I swear within about four hours, I haven’t had itchy or watery eyes since applying the eye drops. Well worth the visit, although, I went to Rite Aid at like 4 a.m. and they where completely out of the Big Win bottled water that is on sale.
Yesterday, on our way to church, we stopped by Rite Aid pick up the BIG Money Maker Shea Moisture Masks. The stores in Sacramento have not been modernized so it always takes me a minute to get my barrens to figure out where something is in the store.
I received the $20 in Bonus Cash!
