Walgreens 1/9

Pretty good trip to Wags, although there was a confusing snafu with the Reach Toothbrushes.  After I studied the receipt for awhile, I think I figured out what happened.  First, I got 4 toothbrushes, and they rang up all different prices - 2.99, 3.99 and 2 at 4.49 ( the price they were all marked at).  Now, normally an unexpected price reduction would be exciting, but in this case it sort of threw a wrench in things.  It may have been different if I had known that some of them were 2.99, and I could have gotten all 4 of them at that price.  But in this case, my B1G1 coupons applied to the lower priced toothbrushes, so it went like this:
2 @ 4.49
1 @ 3.99
- B1G1
1 @ 2.99
After B1G1 =
-$2/2 Reach = $6.98
Wags In ad coupon SHOULD have taken off $8, but it only took off $4 - I'm guessing that those lower prices toothbrushes were the culprits.  So, I paid $2.98 instead of getting a money maker :(  I know, $2.98 for 4 toothbrushes is still not bad.  But I was expecting a money maker, so I'm sort of disappointed.  I'm still trying to figure out if and how to remedy this situation.

But, moving on to the good.  I started out this trip with a $10 RR.
Paid: $3.42 ( darn toothbrushes!)
Saved: $69.83!
Used $10 RR
Got back $9 RR
