Yay for Walgreens!

I just love a good couponing trip.  I knew it was going to be a great morning when I was driving to the store and noticed how incredibly beautiful it was today.  It finally feels like summer!  We have had ALOT of rain in Oregon this spring, and summer is getting a late start.  As if that wasn't enough to put me in a great mood, when I stopped by Starbucks to buy a paper ( yes, I broke down and bought a paper this week) I found that I got lucky enough to get the $5/1 Schick Hydro coupon!  Score!  And not only that, but I got an extra set of inserts from the recycle rack.  Woot.   Then, when I walked into Walgreens, I was greeted by the smiling manager who said "Got some coupons today?"  And then told me that they still had lots of bodywash.  Have I mentioned how much I love my Walgreens?  OK, but on to my loot.

Fantastic job!! I am really going to try to make it to Walgreens today, but it probably won't be until tomorrow. I love your posts...

Thank you! :)
It really is a great week at Walgreens! I am going to try to make it back there soon, and just hope they haven't run out of everything!

I would love to know about the listerine mail in rebate, I read your blog and with 30 minutes until my wags closed I rushed off to the store to buy a listerine before my $3 off wag Qpon expired! LOL... now how do I submit for the $10 rebate? Thanks...

Wow, I should have searched for the rebate info first, could have saved $2 and not bought it tonight. I'm 2 days too late and I bought the wrong kind! LOL... Teach me a lesson about "jumping" the gun! LOL. Oh well....

Purchase ANY Listerine Whitening or Rembrandt product and receive a free $10 prepaid debit card to put toward your favorite white must have item for summer. Mail your original receipt, dated between 5/21 – 6/17/10 with the Listerine Whitening or Rembrandt product and proof of purchase circled along with your name and address to: Dare to Wear Gift / PO Box 4938 / NY NY 10185. Please allow 4-6 weeks for shipping. Offer good while supplies last. Limit one per household. Must be received by 7/1/10

Shoot! Well, if it makes you feel any better, I lost my receipt so I can't submit for the rebate either! Oh well, you win some you loose some. At least we got some cheap Listerine!
