12/18 ~ My 2010's Last Trip to PetSmart

It has been raining heavily for the past few days here in SoCal and it is still raining while I am working on this update. I love the shower and the cleanliness that comes in the air and I love to get drenched in rain so I decided to make my last trip to Petsmart for 2010 on the past Saturday to buy some of my favorite brands for dog treats.


I bought:
~~~~~~~~
1 Cesar Softies 75 treats (6.7 oz) -Filet Mignon Flavor $2.99 (Regular Price: $3.99)
1 Cesar Softies 75 treats (6.7 oz) -Grilled Chicken Flavor $2.99 (Regular Price: $3.99)
1 Pedigree Good Bites 50 pieces -Multi-Vitamin $3.49 (Regular Price: $3.99)
1 Bags on Board refill bags -8 rolls 120 bags $2.97 (Clearance)
1 Pedigree DentaStix -4ct $3.49 (Regular Price: $3.99)
1 Nutro Utlra Biscuits 23oz $2.24 (Regular Price: $4.99)

I paid using these $2 coupons for Pedigree DentaStix, Cesar Softies and Pedigree Good Bites.




Total (after coupons): $11.94
($10.17 + $1.77 Sales Tax)




I think $.99 for a bag of Cesar Softies treats is a great deal!  I do not intend to find coupons for it though... ... I figured out that I have enough treats to last for another at least 2 months!

Woohoo Got it! Thanks Tide

I was at their Facebook Wall Post just about 1 minute before the sample giveaway started at 4pm EST today.

They were 4 minutes late in sending out the Register Link, I thought it was gone as the page cannot be loaded but I tried a few time to refresh the page and it worked.  Anyway, I was lucky enough to input my details in time to be accepted as 1st 5000 and I got my Free sample!!!

For those who tried, did you get it too?

The first issue (1/2/11) of the new year usually has many high quality coupons so you may want to plan on purchasing extra copies :)

12/19 ~ No Sunday Coupon Inserts






There are no RedPlum or SmartSource scheduled for the weekend of 12/19.


Happy Holidays, Everyone!

12/16 My Walgreens Trip ~ Profit $4.52 (with Sales Tax)


I started out with a $5 Super Jingle Ca$h from my 12/09 purchase and did 2 separate transactions for this trip.


Transaction #1
Goody hair accessories $2
- paid $2.20 OOP with sales tax
- received $2 RR







Transaction #2
Activ-On Joint & Muscle or Arthritis pain relief $7.99
- paid with $2 RR (from transaction #1)
- paid $1.28 OOP with sales tax
- received $8 RR



Summary:
~~~~~~~~~~
Spent:      $3.48 OOP ($2.20 from transaction 1 + $1.28 from transaction 2)
Received: $8 RR
Profit:     $4.52

Note:  I could have "earned" even more if I did a purchase of $30 (pay with my $5 Super Jingle Ca$h) to receive another $5 Super Jingle Ca$h for next week's purchase, but I decided not to follow the game this week for there aren’t many RR deals for week starting 12/19. I do not count Super Jingle Ca$h as OOP because I did not pay for it. Here's the transaction I "earned" my $5 Super Jingle Cash from buying over $25 before coupons. 

CVS Postcard Mailer ~ Save $1 on any L'Oreal Color Riche Lip Collection item

I received this postcard mailer from CVS today for Save $1 on any L'Oreal Color Riche Lip Collection item (x3/6/11)

I did not spot any upcoming deals to stack with this store coupon and available manufacturer's coupon.  However, it is another 11 weeks before the coupon expires in early March '11.

I recalled back in mid-October, I received two CVS postcard mailer coupons for FREE Schick Hydro products: One for a FREE Razor (max $9.99) and one for a FREE Shave Gel (max $3.99). I was glad that I scored a great deal using manufacturer's coupons which can be stacked with those CVS store coupons in their Extra Bucks deal at the same time.

I am not sure how CVS determines the distribution of postcard but I believe that signing up on their website and being a member of their Extra Card helps besides regular store purchase.  

I hope some of you are lucky enough to get this mailer or you may like to share with me what kind of mailer you got instead :)

Tide Washing Machine Cleaner ~ 5,000 Packs! Friday Dec 17th 4pm EST

Tomorrow on Friday Dec 17 at 4 pm EST, Tide will be giving away 5,000 packs of their Tide Washing Machine Cleaner.  You’ll need to “Like” them on their Facebook and pay close attention to their Wall Posts!

I’m sure that all 5,000 pakcs will be gone within split second. If you really wanted to get it, be early at least 15 minutes to check and monitor their Wall Posts ... remember to Refresh for any updates too.

So it would be PST 1pm for those including myself in the following states:
  • California
  • Washington
  • Oregon - all, except for northern three quarters of Malheur County
  • Nevada - all, except for the border towns of West Wendover (near Utah) and Jackpot (near Idaho)
  • Idaho - northern half
Good Luck!  Oh and let me know if you’re one of the lucky ones!
