Ordered a New Coupon Binder!

Sorry, I was gone all yesterday so I wasn't able to update. Anywho, I recently bought a new coupon binder off of Amazon.com. I got the Case-It Dual 500 binder. It was $29.99 and free shipping because I registered with Amazon Mom and get 3 months of free Amazon Prime, which has free 2 day shipping on certain products. I'm super excited to get it in the mail. My current coupon binder was about $10 at Walmart and it is busting and hard to zip now! Once I get my new coupon binder, which should be some time in April, I will post how I organize it :)

Last Night's Walgreens Trip

Now that I've been couponing, my new favorite store is Walgreens. I make a few shopping trips to different Walgreens every week. You'll find that some Walgreens have different things in stock, that others may not have. Also, sometimes one of my Walgreens stores has already been gone through by other couponers, so I go to a different one. I don't shop on Sundays, so sometimes I don't get the best deals. But yesterday was a good trip, here is why:

1st Transaction:
  • Bought:
    • Neuragen PN .17oz 19.99
    • Tena Pads 9.99
    • 11.4 oz Peanut Butter M&Ms 2.50
    • 12.6 oz Peanut M&Ms 2.50
Total Before Coupons and tax: 34.98
  • Used:
    • 10.00/off Neuragen PN (pg 22, just print out that page!, this is from the Diabete's Care Winter Mag. found at Walgreens in the Pharmacy area, I didn't pick it up but I found this printable version on http://www.iheartwags.com/)
    • 2.50/1 Tena
    • $1/2 Mars Candy from 3/20 newspaper
    • $1/2 M&Ms from Walgreens March Coupon Book (found by the ads in store)
Total Payed OOP (out of pocket): 21.91
  • Recieved: $10 Register Reward from Tena
  • $19.99 Mail in Rebate from Neuragin PN

2nd Transaction:
  • Bought
    • (3) Ore Ida 4.75 Frozen Fries-Marked down at my store for .25 each
    • Tena Pads $9.99
Total Before Coupons and Tax: 10.74

  • Used:
    • (2) $4 Register Rewards from last week's Irish Spring deal (they were 2/$6 and I had 2 $1 off coupons, so I payed $4 and got back $4 RR, I did this deal twice)

Total OOP: $0.24
  • Recieved: $10 RR
Notes from the Field:
    *With my first transaction, in order for my Neuragen coupon to work, they had scan the Neuragen first, then scan the coupon, then do the rest of my transaction. I bought the other items to make sure my total was more than $19.99, because I want the full rebate and was afraid that if my total was $9.99, that's all the would send me. I bought the M&Ms because it was the only way to get my husband to go with me.

So, here's the explanation of how I've made money with these transactions:
  • My first transaction was $21.91. I will get $19.99 back with my rebate, so that's $1.92 OOP. Then, I got $10 RR, and because I only spent $1.92 on the Tena to get the $10 RR, I will have made $8.08. However, I have to use that on Walgreens purchases, so as long as I keep using my RR for stuff like this, I will continue to get free products.
  • My second transaction was $0.24. It cost me $8 OOP for the (2) $4 RR from last week. So really this transaction was more like $8.24 and I got $10 RR. So I made $1.76 that I have to spend at Walgreens.

So in total I've made: 9.84 in RR and gotten the following for FREE
  • (2) Tena Pads, which I will donate
  • (2) big bags of M&Ms, which make my hubby happy
  • (3) frozen Ore Ida fries, which also may my hubby happy
  • 1 Neuragen PN, which will be fun to try out
  • (2) Irish Spring deodorants (from last weeks transactions)

Free EAS Product

I have no idea was EAS is, but it's free. I'm going to check some stores out this week and see who has it and get back to you, unless someone already knows and could leave a comment.

The coupon is for $3 off any EAS product. It is some sort of health drink or bar, it would be in the health section of the store. Go HERE to sign up and print off your coupon. Remember that you cannot copy coupons. Even though it will allow you to set your printer to print off more, the store will only get payed for one coupon you print out. If you want more of them, and you have wireless internet and other wireless devices, you can use..say..a laptop to print off another. One coupon per computer, not per printer.

2 Free Softscrub at Target


Here's how you work the deal:
Softscrub at Target should be priced at 2.49, if it's priced more, sorry it won't be free.

Go to http://softscrub.com/softscrubclub/signup and sign up.
Go to your email and verify your address.
Now sign in, go to "Member Exclusive Offers" and click on "Get It" for the 1.50 off one Softscrub offer.
Now print it off and you get one coupon.
With Bricks Coupons, you can hit back on your webpage a couple of times and get it one more time.
Now you have two $1.50/1 Softscrub coupons.

Now visit http://coupons.target.com/ and click on the $1/1 Softscrub coupon. I found it on the first page of coupons. This is a store coupon, which you can stack with the manufacture coupons you printed out earlier. Now print it out, go back to Target coupons and print it out again.

Now you can go through, do two different transactions because you can only use the Target coupons one time a transaction, and use your $1.50/1 and $1/1 coupons to get a total of $2.50/1 on your $2.49 softscrub! If you want to make sure you get the extra cent, buy something else you need and the extra cent should go towards your other purchases.

Make sure you hand over your Target Store coupons LAST!!! :)
