Tonight Kendall and I went to Walgreens to spend $6 in Register Rewards that was expiring tomorrow. I made a little list based off the sales ad and what I felt I had the best coupons for.
M&M’s on sale $.49 (I had a $.75/2 coupon)
Scrunchi Elastic Pack on sale 2/$3 – earning $3 Register Rewards
Pure Silk Shave Gel on sale $.99 (I had $.80/1 coupon)
Bounty 6 roll paper towels 5.49 earning $1 Register Rewards ( I had a $1/1 coupon)
If my calculations were correct I would have walked out of the store with the following transaction.
6 M&M’s $2.94
2 Scrunchi’s $3.00
4 Pure Silk Shave Gels $3.96
1 Bounty Paper towels $5.49
Total before coupons = 15.39
Total after coupons = 8.94
Total after using Register Rewards = 2.94!!!!! And then earing $4.00 more Register Rewards… basically I would have walked out with FREE stuff!
BUT THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN…. :(
Don’t worry… there is a happy ending.
Kendall and I go inside Walgreens and decide to hit up the shaving aisle. That’s always where I go first because they always have deals.
Pure Silk shave gel SOLD OUT – I get a rain check for 4 … disappointing but I will be fine and will redeem this deal another day.
Scrunchi’s are sold out too… BOO!
So I pick up my M&M’s and paper towels and quickly do the math to realize my grand total after coupons will be less than my $6 in Register Rewards. :(
So we circle the store to see if we can find any killer deals (I had my coupon binder with me!!) and settle on a $1 pair of Minnie Mouse socks for Kendall.
I get to the checkout and in my usual (and crucial) order..
1. Let her scan all my items
2. Hand over my manufacturer coupons
3. Hand over my $4 Register Rewards
3. Hand over my $2 Register Rewards and BAM it won’t take it because my total was $2.62 and the register rewards will not cover tax.
So I quickly grab a Snickers ($.49) and after I hand her my $2 Register Rewards I owe a grand total of….
$1.21 & I received $1.00 back in Register Rewards
Not bad for all this, huh????
*** Walgreens is lame and does not honor register rewards with rain checks so that’s why I didn’t get a rain check for the scrunchi’s in case you were wondering. CVS does honor it’s Extra Bucks with a rain check. I heart CVS!***
