Walgreens run - a few money makers



I was happy to go to my favorite Walgreens and see they still had Nivea bodywash in stock(I stopped at 3 stores yesterday on the way to the bookstore and they were all already sold out)

Anyway, did 3 transactions

Tran #1:
Heinz Vinegar $2.19 (filler and dh uses it to clean his coffee pot)
1 Listerine $5.99 - $3 in ad coupon - $2 IP(use zip 44142) = .99
1 Schick razor $7.99 - $4 insert 6-13 = $3.99
-$10 RR from Neutrogena deal
Cost oop .16

Earned $4 RR back for the razor

and I can use the receipt for the Listerine $10 rebate(READ this is while supplies last so get that sucker in FAST!) or the Schick razor try me free for purchase price (obviouslyI will do the Listerine, but I have other receipts with the Schick and I will try to find the highest ring up price to mail in for that one)

Trans #2:
3 Neutrogena lip balms $2.99 each - $1.50 booklet coupons(from Safeway) = $4.47
1 Laser cat pointer(filler -the new kitten LOVES this new toy) $1.29
-$5 RR from prior Gillette razor deal
Cost oop: .82 (.06 tax)

Earned $10 for Neutrogena

Trans #3:
1 Nivea bodywash $5.99 - $3 insert = 2.99
1 Laser cat pointer(so the girls wouldn't fight over one!- not pictured) $1.29
-$4 RR from trans #1
Cost oop: .30 (.02 tax)

Earned $6 for the bodywash

So final tally
Cost: 10.16 + 5.82 + 4.30 + .44 stamp = $20.72
Receive: $4 + $10 rebate + $10 + $ 6 = $30
Profit of ~ $10 (or close to free if I don't get the Listerine rebate)

Thanks goes to hip2save for the info on the Listerine rebate.

*you can purchase any 3 Neutrogena products to get the $10 RR and we just got $1 coupons so other scenarios can still be money makers
Gillette razor is also still on sale with RR attached making it under $1 (new proglide) with P&G insert coupon

I went to 2 stores and got 3 lip moisturizers at each store, the second store they rang up at $2.19.. I was also able to use the $2 off facial moisturizer coupons, since lips are on your face. both stores accepted them. they did not beep, and one was okayed by the manager. great money maker!
