I had a nice trip to Walgreens, but I made a BIG screwup. I didn’t remember to deduct off the store coupon from the Robitussin I bought when figuring out what I needed to qualify for the points deal. Since I only paid $3.99 after store coupon, my five items only totaled $19.95 and I did not get the 5000 Balance Rewards points for spending $20 or more.
I’m going to go back to the store tomorrow and fix this. I will return all five Robitussin items and repurchase them all, together with a sixth item. I will use a $3/1 Children’s Advil coupon on the sixth item. That will make the deal actually look like it is written up below, even though my picture only has five Robitussin in it. (I can’t believe I screwed this up! See…we make mistakes too!)
So…here’s what the trip looks like AFTER I fix my mistake…
ONE K-Y JELLY 4 OZ, regular price $6.79
TWO K-Y WARMING LIQUID LUBRICANT, regular price $7.29
Get 10,000 Balance Rewards points (value $10-$12.50) for buying $20 of K-Y (monthly unadvertised points deal through 2/27)
Used three $2/1 K-Y Product printable coupons (preclipped/zip 68130)
Price at Register: $15.37, but received 10,000 Balance Rewards points (value $12.50)
NET PRICE FOR ALL: $2.87 (or 96 cents each!)
