As I had said on Saturday, I was going to Rite Aid for the FREE Russell Stover candy eggs and I was in and out of the store without any issues.
I then went to Walgreens and I did the Garnier/Colgate Money Maker deal almost as I posted except that I only had (3) $2 Colgate coupons and I used a $1 Colgate digital coupon and I was talking to my brother and I forgot to give the cashier the Walgreens coupons but (2) $1 Garnier Walgreens IVC coupons came off on my receipt that the cash must have scanned from the booklet
I spent $13.88 excluding tax and I got back $20 in points ($7 wyb $20, $8 Colgate and $5 Beauty Club) plus, I submitted for the $5 in Savingstar rebates.
It was then onto CVS for the Softsoap body wash (spend $10 get $5). So, last month, I received a FREE $5 Extra Bucks from doing a CVS survey and I had a 25% off CVS coupon (home mailer) and a $2 off $6 body wash CVS coupon, I paid $2 and change and I got $5 Extra Bucks.
On my second card, I got more Softsoap body wash using a $3 Beauty Bucks + $5 Extra Bucks and I got back $5 Extra Bucks.
All three store transactions were super simple but if I had two three kids still at home my shopping trips would certainly look differently. If I needed body wash for four or five people in my household, I would probably have four or five loyalty cards and that’s the honest truth.
On Sunday, I saw that the $2 Clean & Clear products Ibotta rebate had reset but I believe the $2 coupon had expired on Saturday. So, I went looking on the Walgreens website and I came across the Clean & Clear Morning Burst Scrubs for $1.59 (it cost $1.79 at my store) and the deal was just perfect for me because I was able to roll $5 in Balance Rewards points into cash.
The Russell Stover heart candy single serve at Rite Aid was plain FREE after Load2Card coupon and there’s no tax on food in California.
EDIT: Checkout 51 shows zero for White Cloud.
Although, the White Cloud toilet paper was not in our San Diego ad, my got feeling was that when I got in store that it would be tagged at the $3.99 price and my gut was right!
I did two separate transactions of the White Cloud and the Dixie paper plates which was on BOGO.
1 White Cloud toilet paper $3.99
2 Dixie paper plates $3.59
-$1.50 White Cloud coupon
-$1 off 2 Dixie paper plates coupon
Paid with $5 in points out of pock $0.08 plus tax.
Submitted for $2 White Cloud and $1 Dixie Savingstar rebates
Submitted for $3 White Cloud Checkout 51 rebate
Final Price: FREE!!!
The only reason I went to Walgreens was to finish off the $3 October Boost Ibotta rebate because I didn’t want to wait to the last minute to it since Ibotta is famous for their disappearing rebates.
I only needed two more rebates to complete the bonus but something told me to pick up the Oreo Milks bar and it was only after I was rung at the register and the cashier handed me the Register Rewards that I realized that I had a Money Maker on the candy bar!
The Caress body wash is regularly $4.49 and on BOGO50% and there is are two Caress body wash Ibotta rebates:
$.90 off Caress body wash, 12 oz+, limit 2, Ibotta rebate
$1.45 off Caress Forever Collection, 13.5 oz, Ibotta rebate
I bought one of each and when I got home to submit for the three rebates, the Milka and the $.90 Caress, I was able to redeem without any problems but I could not redeem the Caress Forever because although, I scan it, the app would not let me redeem it.
Thank goodness, I followed my instincts! What I did was after I submitted for the rebate and it cleared and I got the bonus. I waited a little while and I tried to submit for the Caress Forever and it worked!
Earlier today, I wrote about the Olay body wash deal at Walgreens so I did the deal exactly as I wrote.
Except for the cashier whipped out a paper Spend $25 get back $5 Balance Rewards points and so, I ended up grabbing two sodas from the little refrigerator near the register which literally put me just over $25.
