I got back $39 in register rewards (2 $10 for the Tena pads, 1 $4 for the razor, and 3 $5 for the Almay makeup). Not pictured that I also bought (which is included in the total) is a 12 pack of mt. dew and a pack of bagels.
The Almay is by far the biggest exciting thing in my opinion. This week it is 20 or 30% off, PLUS, most of it is tagged that you get a $5 reward if you buy it. The mascara was $5.59, the concealer was $6.29, they eyeliner was $5.59. Plus a few weeks ago there were $2 off any almay coupons. PLUS if you find the spring beauty coupon books at the make up counter, there is a $2 off any almay coupon in there as well. These can in fact be stacked- one manu q and 1 walgreens beauty book q. I had one of those, but the cashier took it so I only got to use it once (sometimes they just enter the codes from the coupon and you get to keep it).
So- for instance- I bought the $5.59 mascara, and used a $2 coupon, so I paid $3.59 in cash and got a $5 register reward. I MADE $1.41! And if you use both coupons, you'll make $3.41. And even if you have no coupons- it's a great deal to get good cosmetics for less than $1 each!
By the way- the Tena pads are not for me. They are on sale for $9.99, and you get a $10 reward. I printed a couple of the $2.50 off coupons and will give the pads to my mom. I told her about the sale, but I'm sure she didn't get them and will miss out! So I picked them up while I was there.
Today's sunday paper had a $1 off 2 mars easter items coupons. That is good on the snickers eggs and the dove truffle eggs- that made the snickers free and the truffle eggs $.29 each. Those blow up things are buy two get one free. These are all being tucked away for easter surprises.
