This picture looks a little excessively piggish, but it really isn’t. My Walgreens store had three different varieties of Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief and there were about a dozen of each, even though we are on the third day of the sale. I decided to pick up a bunch of these for two reasons. First, the Colgate coupon I had was set to expire in a few days. But the second reason was because the last time I picked up a few of these, the family vultures wiped me out immediately. Now they can get restocked and stay away for a while ;)

I did seven transactions over at the quiet cosmetics counter. And the cashier I gave some Starbucks Register Rewards to before I went on my trip was working. Needless to say, she was all smiles and didn’t care that I was about to make her work overtime ;)

The first two transactions included some Scotch Tape as a filler so I could use a Register Reward. Both transactions looked like this:

BUY ONE COLGATE SENSITIVE PRO-RELIEF 4 OZ, on sale $3.99 (regular price $5.99)
BUY ONE SCOTCH TAPE, on sale $0.59 with in-ad coupon (regular price $2.19)
Get $3 Register Rewards when you buy one Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief Toothpaste
Used one $0.75/1 Colgate Toothpaste, 5/13 SS newspaper insert
and used the in-ad coupon for the Scotch Tape (adjusted price to $0.59)
Price at Register: $3.83 (plus tax), but reeived $3 Register Rewards
NET PRICE FOR ALL: $0.83 (plus tax)
*** I used one Register Reward on each transaction to lower my out-of-pocket more

TRANSACTIONS 3-7 ALL LOOKED LIKE THIS:

BUY ONE COLGATE SENSITIVE PRO-RELIEF 4 OZ, on sale $3.99 (regular price $5.99)
Get $3 Register Rewards when you buy one Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief Toothpaste
Used one $0.75/1 Colgate Toothpaste, 5/13 SS newspaper insert
Price at Register: $3.24 (plus tax), but reeived $3 Register Rewards
NET PRICE FOR ALL: $0.24 (plus tax)

Total Retail Value of All Merchandise (All Seven Transactions): $46.31
Net Price Paid for Everything: $2.86 (plus tax)
Savings Rate (excluding tax): 93.8%

  1. why do you need a “filler “?

    • I needed one because I was already using a Colgate coupon, but I wanted to use a second “manufacturer” coupon (a Register Reward) to lower my out of pocket expense. To do that, I needed a second coupon that did not have a manufacturer coupon attached to it. That is why I bought the tape on a few transactions.

  2. “the family vultures” LOL!!!! Boy do I know how that goes.
