Walgreen's Savings

Went to Walgreen's today after work. I still had a rain check for the Colgate Max Toothpastes that were 2 for 2.00 dollars each. To recap, the rain check will give the toothpastes (4.2 oz size) for 2.99. I would then use the 1.00 coupons for each tube and get the toothpaste for free.

What actually happened was that there was only 7 toothpastes that qualified for the rain check. No biggie, I decided that would be okay. I have been able to stockpile toothpaste lately, so I was going to go with the 7 tubes.

Then, I was checking the weekly ad and there is a coupon for Colgate Luminous toothpaste and it would take the price from 2.59 dollars to .99 cents. Alrighty, so I had 12 more of the dollar coupons to use and I took the 12 tubes of Colgate Luminous toothpaste, along with the Colgate Max toothpaste and the bag of .99 Chex Mix (Sale Price) to the cosmetic checkout.


I know the girl (who was very nice) must have thought I lost my marbles when I started stacking up the toothpaste..... 19 tubes of toothpaste and one bag of Chex Mix.. She did not say anything.... she just smiled politely.

She adjusted the price for the Colgate Max, scanned my Easy Saver Coupon and took off the manufacturer coupons. She then scanned the Colgate Luminous toothpaste, and then scanned the weekly add coupon as well as the other 12 manufacturer coupons. Now she scanned the Chex Mix, and then she tried to scan the 1.00 dollar coupon I had and it would not work. She did not know how to adjust the coupon and called her manager to help.



The manager did not know how to adjust the coupon either, but he said to void off the 99. price for the Chex Mix and ring it in at 1.00 and THEN use the coupon. Well don't you know, that worked!!


So, the tax was about 2.17 dollars and I use my gift card for that. It was a good day at Walgreen's !!

Now THAT is a lot of toothpaste. Good for you! If you have kids or grandkids, wanted to let you know too about the free SpongeBob powered toothbrush (when you buy Colgate and send in a business card from your dentist). This offer's been out there awhile but I just spotted it the other day and posted on it. My kids LOVE SpongeBob. :)

My Chex Mix coupon says "no other coupon can be used with this coupon." How did you get around that? Am I missing something?

Awesome deal on the toothpaste. I'm just starting out and I'm still trying to figure all of this out :-o) Thanks for your post. It is inspiring!

Wow...you should really be good on toothpaste from now on. =)

Thanks Erin. I do have grandkids and they might like the Sponge Bob powered toothbrush...

LISA said...

Kaye,

Yes, I am REALLY good on the toothpaste for now and then some.

But, it was free and "working" the deal is such a rush for me. :)

I really need to do a tube count and see just how many I do have.

Thanks April!

Sonya, I don't know about your coupon. I guess I would have to "see" it.... Sorry not much help!
