more free candy bars - like I needed them :)

January 4th, 2011 at 09:27 pm

I got my $50 reward check from my Chase credit card in the mail today. Went back to Walgreens and got 2 more flue medicine and 1 more dishwashing detergent. I also picked up another box of free Wheat Thins for the food pantry.

I had 2 $9 RRs and 2 $1.50 RRs. So I got 3 cans of Hunts tomato sauce and a $20 Walgreens gift card. At Walgreens they consider OYNO RRs to be manufacturer coupons and they only allow 1 manufacture coupon per item. I had 4 RRs so the gift card counts as 1 item and the 3 cans of tomato sauce = 4 items. I also used an in-ad Walgreens coupon that made the tomato sauce 3/$1. You can stack Walgreens coupons with manufacture coupons. So the total was $21 and I gave the cashier my 4 RRs and the Walgreens coupon so the final was $0.

I find it better to put RRs on gift cards when I can. They will do it in increments of $5. That way I have longer to use the money than the normal 2 weeks of the RR and I don't have to spend $21 on stuff I don't need, I can wait till there is something I want. Plus it's sometimes hard to find items that add up to what your RR equals.

I went to Safeway and got 6 Reese's peanut butter cups for free. They had them on sale buy 3 get 3 free and I had 3 buy 1 get 1 free coupons. So by buying 6 the sale paid for 3 and the coupons paid for 3 and I got 6 for free.

I finished reading my book Belladonna by Anne Bishop. Sci/Fi - very good.

    In my area WAG will NOT allow you to buy a gift card with register rewards. I would LOVE to be able to do that.
