I had a great trip to Walgreens today. FYI – If you’re doing the Ziploc deal, you may want to pick different items than I did. Not only did my $1/2 Ziploc Slider Bags coupon beep, but the Register Reward didn’t print either even though the items were tagged. I’m going to submit here and get the Register Reward mailed to me.

I used the in-ad store coupon for 5x Everyday Points with $10+ purchased. My regular Everyday Points earned were 280, but I received an extra 2240 Balance Rewards points. The 5x Everyday Points in-ad coupon should’ve given me 1120 more, but I received twice that. I think coupon is double dipping with the same coupon you can clip to your Balance Rewards card online (which I had clipped before shopping.) That’s 2520 extra points that aren’t listed with the individual items below. When redeemed, 2520 points are worth $2.52-$3.15. (You earn the higher value for your points by redeeming them in larger increments.) Because I (almost) always redeem my points in 40,000 chunks for $50, I am counting these points at the higher $3.15 value in the final statistics for this trip.

Here’s what I bought, along with the rest of the coupons I used:

ONE OXICLEAN LAUNDRY DETERGENT 26 LOADS, on sale $3.99 (reg. $7.49)
Used one $3/1 OxiClean Laundry Detergent printable coupon (preclipped)

***Note that the half price items ring up for $2.99 and some cashiers may refuse to scan the $3/1 coupons for them because the coupon value exceeds the price of the item. However, if scanned, I can confirm that these coupons go through without beeping.

  1. Your on a roll. Great trips

  2. I did the Ziploc rebate for the $5 gas cash..so far I have not found a gas station that would use..tried to buy something online too with it and that didn’t work either..

    • Jennifer Finkral says:

      that is the same reason why Im not buying them because in California its against the law to punch in a credit card number

  3. I haven’t been able to find a gas station that will take the Ziplock promotional MasterCard. Any ideas or suggestions?

    • Maureen says:

      Contact the sponsor through the website where you uploaded the receipt and ask which gas stations take them because you haven’t found any in your area. I didn’t do the deal, so I don’t know what is written in the fine print.
