Our Splenda trip to Walgreens + How I avoid coupon beepage...

Last night, we drove to Walgreens in hopes to find the $2.99 packages in stock....when we got there, I noticed my son JJ had fallen asleep, so I asked Jonathan if he would go in alone, his response?...."No, I'm not dealing with the coupons beeping because of the penny overage". He gets frustrated when cashiers refuse to enter coupons manually, so I gave him a little tip of mine, and I thought I should share it with you too, since you probably have the same issues at your store. I told Jonathan, "All you have to do is add ONE extra item than you have coupons and just have them take it out AFTER they scan your coupons." .

For example:

Back when there were $2 Purina One dog food coupons and we used them to get the $1.99 packs for FREE. If you had 5 coupons, and you took 5 packages to the counter, once the cashier is scanning the coupons, the only coupon that beeps would be the LAST coupon not every single one. SO, what you could do to avoid your last coupon beeping, is Always add an EXTRA pack of dog food (or whatever the item is), and once the cashier scanned all the coupons, you could say something like: " Can you take one item off my order, I had more items than coupons". Then all the cashier does it VOID it out, and give you your total...simple as that. OR, you also have the option of just buying the extra item, so it'll be all for the price of one, your choice.

Ok, back to the trip, Jonathan picked up 3 boxes of Splenda (100 count packs) @ $2.99 each, and had 3 $3 coupons. Since the last coupon would beep because of the penny overage, he added another Splenda item that was $8.99, and once the cashier scanned all his coupons he asked if he would void the $8.99 item since it was not part of the $2.99 This would obviously not work if you don't have any other purchases to absorb the $.03 overage (1 cent per coupon), but he was buying other things anyway, so it went well. So, the Splenda was FREE, and I got a $4 Register Reward.... MONEY MAKER!!!

[$3 Splenda coupon is in the 4/17 SS insert]

Free Roast Beef sandwich @ Arby's!!

Sign up here for the "Arby's Extras" newsletter, and you'll get an emailed coupon for a FREE regular Roast Beef sandwich!!

this week at rite aid there are some norelco shavers for $19.99 get $10 upr. if you have 20% discount you can get one for $2.99 after upr and $3 off $15 survey q here is my scenario

norelco shaver $19.99

with 20% discount=$15.99

use $3/$15

pay $12.99 get $10 upr

so 2.99 after upr

not bad for an electric shaver i love these shavers since i cant use the regular razors and this also makes a really cheap fathers day gift i think the limit is 4 on these so you can roll your upr and get 4 cheap fathers day gifts

Happy Easter!!!

I wanted to wish each and every one of you a very Happy Easter!!! Have fun with friends and the mean time, I'm off to work. Talk to you all soon!

Use your Penny Carefree pantiliner coupons @ Walmart, too!!!

If you were like me and waited a few days to go to Target for the penny pantiliners, you were probably welcomed by an empty shelf....yep, that's what happened to us yesterday...BUT, If I remembered correctly, Walmart will take competitors coupons as long as they were for a Specific item at a Specified price, I had my Walmart coupon policy in the car, so I whipped it out to double check....& Yes, Indeed!!! It clearly says they take coupons with those we drove down the street to Walmart!!! Ahahahaha....

As we walked in, I stopped by the customer service desk to ask, and the lady said, "Yes, that should be ok". So, we went to the shelf...FULL AS CAN BE...we grabbed a few and to the checkout lanes we went, the cashier that helped us was really nice and could not believe the price, she almost passed Actually, she said jokingly...?? <---is that a word?...anyway, she said "Let me ask cuz I don't want to get in trouble". with a huge smile on her face...but, the CSM in charge told her to just do it. When we were done, we asked if we could get more since we still had coupons, and she said "SURE, there's no limit, so if you have more coupons, you can use them". (I was pretty shocked at the coupon friendliness going on), while it lasted that is....

Once Jonathan ran back for a few more & returned, another cashier and CSM were there and right when he got up to the register, the [new] cashier said "Is that the Target coupons?, we can't take them". Jonathan told her it's on the coupon policy, and we just got some, but she said the CSM just told her NOT TO take them anymore. So, Jonathan got out of line and called corporate, and while the lady on the phone agreeing with him and was about to contact the store, the Rude CSM guy came over and said fine, they'll take them afterall....maybe since Jonathan had asked for his name because the corporate lady was asking who was denying the coupons. Anyhoo, we finished our crazy pantiliner trip, and headed home.

Since the penny Target coupon was included in the SmartSource that comes in the weekly junk mail inserts, we went in our local recycling bin, looking for inserts. We ended up gettting about 110 packages, total!!! Please don't yell at me, I didn't clear a shelf, plus it's Walmart...they get shipments everyday. hehe. And another plus, I use these everyday, so they won't go to waste...I hope that's not TMI??? LOL...

If you plan on trying this at Walmart, be sure to print yourself a copy of the Walmart Coupon Policy HERE to take along with you. I like the one at the bottom link "Download our Coupon Policy" since it has pictures and is clearer.
