I headed out to Walgreens today to get three deals. I was really excited about the Ecotrin and Jell-O deals there. I also wanted to get this Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Register Rewards deal:
2 Kellogg's Crunchy Nut cereal @ $2.50 = $5.00 (receive $2 RRs)
- 2 $0.70/1 Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Cereal printable
(here's how to get a second printing of that coupon)
= $3.60 for two, or $1.80 each (80¢ each after RRs)
...but my Walgreens store didn't carry Kellogg's Crunchy Nut cereal. Bummer.
I also picked up some bottled water. You're probably asking, why would a frugal person spend money for bottled water? Because my area is currently under a boil water order - signs of E. coli were found in the city water system. Of course I boiled some water for drinking, cooking, and washing dishes, but it's good to have some bottled water on hand as well for this as well as for future emergencies.
My total came to $2.83, but I only had a $3 RR from last week. Instead of buying something else to use the $3 RR, I decided to save it for next week and just pay out of pocket.
Here's the details on what I got:
2 Ecotrin low-strength aspirin, 45 ct, @ $1.50 = $3.00 (receive $2 RR)
- 2 $1.50/1 Ecotrin Aspirin Therapy Product, exp. 7/30/12 (RP 05/06/12)
= FREE ($2 moneymaker after RRs)
2 Jell-O pudding @ 67¢ (with in-ad coupon) = $1.34
- $0.50/2 JELL-O Gelatin or Pudding, exp. 6/6/12 (SS 05/06/12 R)
= 84¢ for two, or 42¢ each
1 Nice! drinking water 24 pack @ $1.99 (Sunday and Monday only)
Total out of pocket: $2.83
Total saved compared to Walgreens full prices: $11.52
