free deodorant

February 21st, 2011 at 02:26 pm

Went to Walgreens this morning and got 3 free Dove Deodorants.

3 x 3.49 = 10.47
- 3 $2 coupons = 4.47
- Walgreen's in-ad coupon making them $1.99/each took off $4.50 = .03 profit before taxes. Taxes was .41 so technically they weren't 'free'. I paid .38 in taxes. I also had to buy a filler to soak up the overage of .03 cents. I got a Valentines Reese's heart and used my Walgreen gift card to pay. The Walgreens gift card was purchased with RRs - so free. These will all be donated to the food pantry since I already have 4 deodorants. Deodorant is free pretty often.

I went to Safeway to get free Nature Sweet cocktail tomatoes, but they didn't have any. They had an ad in Sunday's paper for 3 days only on sale .99 and I have coupons to make them free. The store never had them, but said they might get them tomorrow. What a rip-off. Safeway is really bad for doing things like that. My least favorite store to shop at, but they do have good deals at times, so I continue trying. I may go back tomorrow. It's only a mile out of the way.

Talked to my oldest niece for awhile yesterday. Her and a friend drove up to Vail for snowboarding and almost had a serious accident sliding on the ice in the car. Fortunately they didn't hit anything, but got stuck on an ice bump. Someone pulled them out. But it scared them good. It's tricky driving in the mountains here with the ice. The friend is from Hawaii and doesn't have good snow driving skills.

I finished reading the library book A Gift of Dragons by Anne McCaffrey. Sci/Fi - very good.

    Can you get a raincheck on the tomatoes?
