This weeks money making Walgreens trip

This week I had a fun trip to Walgreens.
  1. They had a deal on photo developing where if you got 25 prints you could get 25 free. I upload my photos online and then just pick them up at the store (as soon a couple of hours later) The coupon code is still good through the end of today, it is 25FREE. So the total for 50 pictures was $4.75 ~ a pretty good deal.
  2. They had Excedrin on sale for $1.99. I printed 2 $2 coupons off the Internet and I bought 2 bottles. I should have just earned 2 cents in overage but one of the bottles rang up (I noticed later on my receipt) at $1.09 so I actually made 92 cents in overage.
  3. Peanuts were on sale for $1.99. I needed them for a recipe this week.
  4. Oral B toothbrushes were on sale for buy one get one free (or $2.99 for both). I had a $2 off coupon on two so I got both of them for 99 cents.
  5. And the best deal!! The Venus Embrace Razor was on sale for $9.99. When you bought it you got a $5 register reward. Also I had a $4 coupon. Also since I was not able to get it last month with the free after rebate (they never had any available) they were letting us get the rebate this month. So I will get a $9.99 rebate plus 10% ($1) which I will put on my gift card. Also I don't even have to use a stamp because in MN they are trying out having us submit our rebates online.

So my total spent was $14.04 with tax.
I will be getting $11 on my gift card in rebates.
I got a $5 RR.
So in all I earned $1.96

Shopping at Walgreens can be very fun. I was a little disappointed because they were still out of a couple of the rebate items, otherwise I could have earned even more.

I also got the Venus Embrace for free. They were on sale for 6.99 at CVS and then you would earn 3 cvs bucks. I went three times and they were out so I got a rain check. The cashier wrote the rain check for 3.99 because that is what it would have cost after the cvs bucks. So when I went thursday they finally had them in stock. I had 5 cvs bucks so I did not have to pay anything out of pocket. I was very happy. The only thing about that razor is that the replacement heads cost a lot.

I go to the Money Saving Mom blog which is on my side bar. She has the links to the coupons you need for the sale items at stores.
I do also visit and for coupons.

your amazing, I do wish Ukrainians would get the idea. They sometimes have a small sale, but nothing really worth going out of your way for.
