My Trip to Walgreens

I will be in Sacramento for Thanksgiving and my youngest brother used to love when I’d send him the FREE Gillette razors that we used to get all the time at all three drugstores. I didn’t imagine that I’d be doing the Gillette Razor + Refills on the Cheap but I had the $10/2 Gillette digital coupon and the $5/2 Gillette digital coupon plus, I had the spend $15 get 3,000 points.

I decided to throw in the Crest toothpaste has it counts towards the $15/$50 P&G Savingstar rebate.

Everything went exactly as expected – I received all of my points, however, a new funky lady assistant manager (she looked like a man) put my receipt and what I thought was my $5 RR into my bag but I did hear something else print from the catalina machine and she promptly put that into the trash and told me to have a nice day.

I ran another errand and by the time I got home and I looked into the bag, she had put the spend $20 get 5,000 points into my bag.  Acccckkkkkkkkk.  There’s more than one way to skin a cat.

I went to Catalina website and submitted an online form requesting my $5 Register Rewards.  It took like 5 minutes.  They call the Register Rewards/catalina a coupon so don’t be thrown off by the verbiage.

I specifically wanted to tell this missing Register Rewards/catalina story for new readers or readers that don’t know that you can request to have a missing catalina or Register Rewards mailed to your home. They send you the missing catalina very quickly.

I’m still very happy with my trip to Walgreens! 🙂


A reader, Charles, let me know that I had bought the wrong product for the Dr. Scholl’s insert/insoles.

I go back to look at the SwagBucks offer:

Dr. Scholl’s

Shoe inserts and insoles that help you move more comfortably and confidently.
Buy 2 sets of insoles at Walmart and earn 1,000 SB!*


  • Any Variety
  • Cannot use this offer with any print or in-app coupon or rebate
  • Expires 11/03/2019

In contracting law, you cannot say “any” and then have stipulations under Fine Print.

If you have ever bought a car, house, rented an apartment, you won’t see the word any because there are stipulations that you must adhere to contractually.

More than likely someone watched the same 8 Awesome Walmart Deals as I and contacted SwagBucks/MyPoints to report the Money Maker because unhappy people can stand to see someone else shine.

SwagBucks/MyPoints quickly added the Fine Print and 20 specific products that’s valid for the rebate.

I am not mad at Charles and I thank him for leaving the comment.

But haters will cut off their nose to spite their face so that we all loose out on a Money Maker.  The webmasters at SwagBucks/MyPoints are quick to make changes when it comes to these In-Store deal offers.

I bought the $2.94 insoles, this afternoon, and I will be returning them back to Walmart. No harm, no foul.


My Trip to Walgreens

Since I had a $4 off $20 Walgreens coupon and there’s a Free Garnier Olia Haircolor Product (up to $10.99) rebate at Walgreens, I decided to purchase the Money Maker Crest toothpaste as a filler item because I had a $8 off 4 Crest/Oral-B digital coupon. I also needed the storage bags and they are on sale, this week Buy 1 Get 2 FREEE.

My Trip to Walgreens & CVS

Even though Sunday was Mother’s Day, I had $5 Register Rewards that was due to expire and a $3 Beauty Bucks so I went to a Walgreens that was practically right next to CVS to save time.

I did check to see if this particular Walgreens had the Secret Freshies or the Secret on-the-go deodorant but it was a no go. I decided to walk around the store and I saw that the $3.99 Dixie paper plates are on BOGO FREE sale which was perfect as I also had a $2 RR from buying something else previously.  I bought 4 Dixie paper plates $7.98 and use $7 in Register Rewards, I paid $0.98 plus tax!  The $1/2 Dixie products digital coupon didn’t come off and that probably because I used two Register Rewards and there wasn’t an open slot for the manufacturer coupon.

I posted the Kleenex deal on Saturday, I had $4 Extra Bucks from my other card so my out of pocket was $2.98 plus tax and I got back $5 Extra Bucks!
