Saturday 9: Just One Look

Sunday Steals And Deals: Rite Aid, CVS & Wags

Thanks again to Collin at Hip2Save for helping me put together these deals! I couldn't do it without help. And, by the way, just a few minutes ago, I redeemed for $5 GC #5 from Swagbucks! Between that and winning twice for Deal Seeking Mom's coupon database, I've got $75 racked up at Amazon! =D

And so, here we go:

Rite Aid


Transactions #1 & #2: I'm combining these because they go together for SCR #24. Total value = $68.23; total OOP = 23¢!! (That's a savings of about 99.66%, btw!)


  • (2) StayFree Maxi Pads, 16-ct (which I personally can't use, but since I got them free, I will donate them to Samaritan House along with some clothes I've shrunk out of, and I feel good about that!): Normally $3.99 each, on sale for B1G1-50% off, minus (2) $1 MQs
  • Visine All-Day Itch Relief: $12.99, minus $3 MQ and $3 in-ad SQ
  • Motrin PM 20-ct: $5.49, minus $1 MQ
  • Cortaid cream: reg. $5.99, on sale for $3.99, minus $1 MQ

  • Used $5-off-$25 SQ for this #2

Submitting these receipts together on Rite Aid's Single Check Rebate site will get me $25 back for the J&J SCR #24. Woohoo!


#3: Total value: $50.89; total OOP: $12.56

{Note: I can afford to be much pickier about the deals I get now that our stockpile is quite full, so you can be sure that if I don't get something for a killer price, it's because we really need it and will use it. Like this Coke, we drink a lot of it, and I'm always looking for a good price. As for all the candy, between the two birthday parties I'll need favors for, and Easter, I need to stock up. Rest assured my kids don't live on a candy and Cocoa Pebbles diet!!}


  • ½-L 6-pack bottles of Coke: reg. $3.79, on sale for $3, minus 50¢ in-ad SQ
  • ½-L 6-pack bottles of CFD Coke: reg. $3.79, on sale for $3, minus 50¢ in-ad SQ

  • (2) Starburst Jellybeans: reg. $2.49, on sale for $1.50, minus $1/2 MQ
  • I also used a $5-off-$25 SQ for this order.


#4: I could have done better on this order, but because they were out of - or didn't carry - a couple things, I didn't have a high enough balance to use another $5-off-$25 SQ, and I didn't want to buy a bunch of stuff just to make that total. Total value: about $37.29; total OOP: $10.94


  • (2) Act II popcorn 3-pk: reg. $2.49, on sale for $1.25, minus (2) 40¢ MQs
  • (2) Mentos Gum bottles, reg. $1.49, on sale for 99¢, minus (2) 55¢ MQs

  • (9) Puffs Plus Tisue Cube (my favorite tissues!!): reg. $1.79, on sale for 79¢, minus (3) 25¢/3 MQs


  Total value: about $97.51; Total OOP for this purchase COULD HAVE BEEN $33.33 but was actually $51.33 because I saved all the ECBs I earned from this order to buy this:


A two-pack of replacement brush heads for our Philips Sonicare Elite electric toothbrush. Mine was unceremoniously dragged through the dirty cat litterbox by a certain four-year-old daughter. *ahem* Anyway, CVS sells the 2-pack for $36.99 (!!! I KNOW!), but it was on sale for $26.99. I had a $5 MQ and used the $18 in ECBs I received from the first order, above, to get that total down to $5.29 with tax. Not too shabby.

Details on the first order:

  • (6) Degree Invisible Solid deodorant: normally $3.69, on sale for $2.50, minus (3) $3/2 MQs and the $5 ECB it gave me
  • (4) Izze drink singles (we tried two; they're GOOD): normally $1.59 each, on sale for 3/$4, minus (4) 75¢ MQs

These actually turned out to be pretty yummy!!

{I had a chocolate one last night. It was really good, but I threw it up... not sure if it had too many carbs or I had a stomach bug or just what. I'll try again later today.}


(3) Hershey's Bliss chocolate candies: Reg. $4.79, on sale for $3.50, minus (3) $1 MQs and $1.50/3 SQ = $2/bag


(3) 2-packs Pilot G2 Pens: reg. $3.29, on sale for 99¢ with in-ad SQ!

These are my absolute FAVORITE pens right now. They were out of blue and black, or I'd have gotten those, but I can use these, too. If I stop at Wags again this week, I'll see if I can find blue and get more.


 (2) Reese's Dark PB Cups: reg. 89¢, on sale for 49¢ with in-ad SQ, minus (2) 55¢ MQs = 12¢ Moneymaker!

Really needed some good lip liners right now, too... :)

We constantly lose nailclippers, and I needed some for my car, so I had to get this deal!

I'm a chapstick fiend, so yay!


(4) Old Spice Swagger Body Wash: Reg. $4.99, minus (4) MQs for FREE Body Wash wyb Old Spice deodorant = 4 FREE!

Except... the cashier took all 4 MQs and only rang up 3, so I paid $5 for one. :( I might call up and see if they can give my $$ back, but I absolutely HATE that Wags, so I might just have to call it a loss. Suckage!

(6) Old Spice High Endurance deodorant: reg. $3.29 each, on sale for $2.29, minus (3) $1/2 MQs = $1.79 each

Not the best deal, but this is Rob's fave brand, so I stocked up for him.

At least I know that if I died tomorrow, Rob and the kids will be clean and smell good! ;)


(4) Blue Diamond Almonds: reg. $3.59, on sale for 2/$3.49, minus (2) $1/2 MQs = $1.25 each

These are the BEST nuts, so yummy! I eat a few of them at a time for a good, high-protein snack. And I'm down 169 lbs as of today, so something is going right! ;)


Colgate Total Advanced Whitening: Reg. $4.59, on sale for $3.99, minus $3.99 RRs and $1 MQ = $1 Moneymaker!
