Walgreens: Gotta love free saline solution!

I wear contacts, so I'm always happy when the drug stores have a deal for free saline solution. And Walgreens had a deal this week (free after Register Rewards). Yay!  Unfortunately there were no matching coupons to make this a moneymaker, but I guess you can't have it all.

I also picked up some vitamins and baby aspirin this week. Here's what I got:

1 Complete saline solution @ $7.99 (receive $8 RR)

2 Nature Made Vitamin D @ BOGO $5.49
- $3 off Nature Made Vitamin D coupon from the February All You magazine
= $2.49 for two, or $1.25 each
(I had two coupons, but the second one beeped - I guess either because the amount of the coupon exceeded the price, or because it was a BOGO item.  Sigh.)

1 Bayer baby aspirin @ $3.19
- $1 off Bayer Walgreens coupon from the May savings booklet (available in-store)
- $1 off Bayer manufacturer's coupon from the 5/1 Smartsource insert (or printable)
= $1.19
(There was a $2 off Bayer aspirin in-ad coupon that I planned to use.  But when I went to use it, I could've sworn that the coupon said it was limited to the 200-300 ct bottles.  Now I look at the ad again and it says 20-300.  Oops.)

3 Maruchan instant lunch @ 25¢ (with in-ad, regional coupon) (extra items)
(In retrospect, I only needed one extra item.  These will be donated to the food bank.)

Total product cost:  $12.42
Pay with $10 in Register Rewards ($4, $3, $3)
Total cost after RRs: $2.42
Tax: 48¢
Total out of pocket: $2.90
Total saved compared to Walgreens retail prices: $23.04

Hi, i was reading through this post and read the part about the Saline. I bought this yday with a coupon actually which made it a money maker with the 5/22 SS coupon that's $1/1. Hope it helps.
