Jewel grocery stores (Albertsons chain)

Different scenarios for the buy $30 and get $15 catalinas back. None of these have been personally tried by me but have been posted by what others have done.  Keep checking back - will post more as I find them or do them myself:

7 boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios (NPC $4.55 - this is apprx - depending on your store's reg. price - might have to buy 8) $14 + tax (no coupons used) and get back $15 in Cats.  Use coupons and save even more! PROFIT!

The Fiber One Honey Nut Clusters is $4.95 NPC soo . . . buy 6 boxes of the Fiber ONE Honey Nut Clusters, and one 6/10 or 8/10 item and total will come to $13.xx plus tax and still get the $15 in cats!!

If your family likes Rice-a-Roni this is a great deal! They are 8/$10, I used two $1/4 from last Sundays paper, and an Albertson's double coupon. Then when you buy eight you automatically get $5 off, it is advertised as $5 off meat but the discount came off without a meat purchase. So basically you only spend $1.

If you purchase the Tide Total Care - there is a guarantee - Total Care Money Back Guarantee (1-866-772-1037) * Tide Total Care is guaranteed to keep your clothing looking beautiful, even after 30 washes. * If consumers are not satisfied with Tide Total Care, Tide will refund their purchase of Tide. * To obtain their money back refund consumer needs to include on a 3x5 piece of paper her name, address, city , state and zip code along with the original cash register receipt dated between September 1st 2008 and June 30th 2009. * Submissions should be mailed to: Tide Total Care Money Back Guarantee Post Office Box 1702 Watertown, MA 02477-1702 * Limit one refund per name, household, or address. Valid through 6/30/09. - some did not send cap and still received refund.

Oh and don't be afraid to look around the garbage cans or in the parking lot - people throw away the catalinas without even looking at them and they could be CASH on your next order slips!

My trips to Walgreens last night!

I hit 3 Wags last night

15 fructis on sale from $2.19- $2.99 - minus $2 ESC and $1 manu coupon - FREE and many were on the clearance so PROFIT!!!

12 boxes of cereal (5 frosted miniwheats, 6 frosted flakes, 1 special k) - on sale 4/$10 - used $1 coupons on each one and got $3 RR back on each group of 4 ($12) = .75 ea

25 Sunsilk products - all on clearance for $2.29 - used 2/$2 coupons and received $6 RR back with every 8 I bought - one was just a filler item - 54 cents each

8 almay lipstick - on sale for B1G1 free - on clearance for $1.89 ea - used $1 off coupon on each one including the free ones - 44 cents profit

1 Revlon new eye matt color - $9.99 minus $2 coupon - receive $9.99 after rebate = $2 profit

9 extra gum - .33 cents each - filler items
3 orbit gums - $1 ea - filler items

Gotta go clean out Jewel this week - amazing deals to come!


Johnson's & Johnson's Baby products - $1 off (sometimes these will work on other J&J products too)

WAGS this week:

Colgate Total toothpaste 2/$2.79 if you use two $1.00 c/o's that will make them very cheap!

I'm getting my list together for Walgreens this week. I note it appears like you might be able to get 2 free windex if the canister or antibacterial trigger are included in the B1G1 sale. Buy 2 at B1G1 and then send in the rebate form in today's paper and get the money back for the one you paid for  them.  Don't forget to use the $.40 coupons too!

At Walgreens Aquafresh is 2.99, 75 cent coupon, $2.00 coupon in super saver book, price 24 cents.

Don't forget to see if there is a small clearance section or clearance tags on various "holiday" food style items - CHEAP FOOD - canned sweet potatoes, pie crusts, baking chocolate, etc...

The Fructis products continue all month - $2.99 minus the $2 ESC and the $1 Man coupon = free or profit if you find any on clearance for $2.19 - make sure you add one filler item so both coupons go thru without a beep since you are actually get 1 penny profit (computers dont like it).

Oust Air Sanitizer B1G1F 2/$3.79 - so basically with the coupon - you get BOTH free (YMMV depending on cashier - go to another store if they won't let you!)
- B1G1F c/o (S 11/23)
- B1G1F c/o (S 1/4)
Final price 2 for FREE?
Equal 2/$5 with in-ad cpn pg 2
- $2.50 (S 1/4)
Final price ala FREE
Bayer Breeze 2 or Contour Glucose Meter $14.99
- $14.99 rebate in box
Final price FREE

CVS - extra care bucks - freebies 
$6 ECB wyb SoyJoy 6pk ($6) monthly limit 10 FREE AFTER ECB! - buy 1 6pk and then use the ECB to bucks to buy the next ones - that way you're only out the $6 at first and will have one $6 ECB when you are done OR if you have the coupons from 1/4 - you can turn around and use your ECB from the Soyjoy to pay for the next SoyJoy, etc. But then you can't use the coupons in the newspaper for $3 off $10. It is a good idea to pay in separate orders, otherwise you end up with an ECB for $30 which is not so easy to spend. One strategy would be to buy 2 boxes, use the grocery coupons. Then buy 3 boxes, use the $12 ECB and any manufacturer's coupons. You'll probably get the soyjoys for free and will have $18 in ECB for your next visit
$5 ECB wyb Accu-Check Compact Plus Diabetes Kit (14.99) limit 1
+ $9.99 MIR (mail in rebate)

Also if you LOVE candles like I do - check the Air freshener section - and look for Febreeze candles - the Vanilla and Apple Spice ones are ringing up at $1.99 as part of the 75% off Christmas items (could be even lower too!) instead of the reg. $7.99 - use coupon if you have it still for $2 off from the P&J coupon insert.
