No Shopping for Me Today

Last night, I went to do the Physicians Formula Skincare and Cosmetics since I had a $4/$20 and a 20% CVS expiring on Saturday. I ended up going to the Pt Loma store b/c the Mission Valley store had not turn on their deals early.

I did the deal but the Self Checkout register was acting up and a cashier finished my transaction at a regular register. I jumped in my car and came on home and realized my Extra bucks did not print!

Drats!!!!

So, this morning, I decide to run back over there (10 min drive) b/c there and as soon as I jumped on the 805 Freeway, there’s a CALTRANS vehichcle on the side of the freeway with a flashing sign that stated “the 8 Freeway West Slow Traffic”.

OMG, I had forgotten they were closing different parts of the freeway for the Walk/Run Rock n Roll Marathon Event today.  And of course, I live close to the 8, 805 and 163 freeways which meant all the freeways would be impacted.

Uggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh, the traffic was bumper-to-bumper and it took me about an hour to reach my destination. When you close down a freeway in San Diego…every other freeway or side roads get backed up, too.

The manager manually prints my Extra Bucks and now I have to go the back way to get out of all of the traffic.

Yep, I drove past the Rite Aid on my way home. I was wore out from sitting in traffic for what seemed like forever.

I’ll do Rite Aid later this eek!

    Can you tell me if this deal is possible? I see where you buy a Gillette Venus razor for $9.99 and you get back $4 in UPS. If I use the b1g1f coupon from today’s paper can I pay $9.99 for two of them and get back two $4 UPS?

      Yes, you will get (2) $4 +Ups.

      Sorry for the double post; I put the first one in the wrong place.

      I tried this deal today, and the coupon beeped but she pushed it through. It took her some time to do it, though. I later realized that the coupon was only supposed to be used on the disposable kind, not the kind with the replaceable heads (which is the kind that the $4 +UP is for). Now, the disposables are on sale for $7.49, so if you use the BOGO Q and a $ off Q, you can get two packages for less than $7. I’ve seen better deals, but not for a long time so this is a pretty good price.

    You poor thing – I visited CA and was amazed by the crowded freeways/standstills. It is nothing like that in Upstate NY. I had to roll a bunch of +Ups today and lucked out rolling $20 on the profitable Schick Hydro Silk deal 🙂

      Congrats on the Hydro Silk, I just came back from Rite Aid and two stores were completely wiped out! 🙁
