Circulars + Taxes

September 29th, 2007 at 05:21 am

So I have to retype this. Again…because I lost it. To a backspace button. And I love this blog and this is why I’m retyping it at 12:44 A.M., otherwise I would type in gibberish out of frustration.

So yes, the Verizon ad, has anyone else gotten it? The government is trying to tax our internet. *cry*

I went to Walgreens with mom last weekend, and checked out the deals for Rite-Aid this week. I’ll just type the deals that I thought were good/decent:

Walgreens:

* 3/$6 Tropicana OJ (I wanted it to be $5 as it usually was.)

*Rimmel Renew & Lift Foundation – Free after $8.99 rebate

*Pantene ProV Hair Products – Free after $5.99 rebate

*Aquafresh Gel-Flex or Toothbrush – Free after $3.99 rebate

*Clear Care Pack Contact Sol. 4oz – Free after $6.99 rebate

*Zicam Cold & Flu - $4 rebate (Maismom only had to pay a nickel. LOL.) compared to Rite Aid’s $6.99.

*Scott Bath Tissue 4 roll - $3.19x2 – [$1 off for 2 + $1 off mnf. Cpn.] = $4.19/8rolls or $0.52/roll (Read on to Rite-Aid sort of hilarious with their ad.)

-Candy: Mars, Hershey’s, Fun Packs, Theathre Box
A lot of $0.99 deals but you have to buy 3
Cpns for a lot of candy, I don’t remember the unit price.
-Save $1 for 2 packs mostly.
-Buy $10 get $5 rebate on candy

----------------------------------

Rite-Aid:

*Pepsi & Pepsi Products 12pck. – 4/$12 with ad cpn.

*Scott Bath Tissue 20 roll - $11.99 or $0.5995/roll. Mom usually goes by $0.50 a roll as cheap. The funny thing was that the ad advertised “Less than 60 cents a roll” and it’s like $0.0005 from 60 cents. Ridiculous advertising.

*Candy: Hershey’s or Mars - 2/$4 after $1 off rebate.
-8 or 10 pack candies (Hershey’s, Baby Ruth, M&Ms) - $0.99
-Theatre-Style Boxed Candy (Mike & Ikes, Dots, Junior Mints, Milk Duds) - $0.88 (cheaper than Walgreens)

*Rite-Aid products, 50% regular retail. My new Rite Aid just opened so we have a coupon $2 for spending $10 on Rite-Aid products. I was planning on getting cotton swabs, $1.99 original I think, so half that is $1 for 300 pack. Not bad.

*Kotex 2/$4 after $1 off rebate plus $1.25 mnf. Cpn. = $1.75

*Halls Cough Drops - 2/$3 (We pay ridiculous amounts in the winter.)

*BC Brownie Mix - $0.99 (Maybe I have a coupon.)

*Poland Spring Water 24 pck. - $3.99 (Not sure if it’s a deal, I’ll check in with my mom tomorrow.)

*Palmolive Dishwashing Liquid - $0.99 - $0.40 mnf. Cpn. = $0.59. (I usually buy in huge gallons at BJs though.)

----------------------------------

Whew. So my mom found the Staples receipts. This is just for my reference. Color pencils and markers are Crayola. I don’t trust Roseart. I hate Roseart. =]
Bought during tax-free weekend: 8/12/07
*Staples 0.5MM mech 2/$3
*Avery Binder 1in – 4/$6
*Glue - $0.05
*Cap-Erasers - $0.99
*Westcott Shatterproof Ruler - $0.99 (Cheaper a few weeks ago, $0.69 or $0.79)
*12ct Color Pencils - $0.99
*10ct markers - $0.68
*Sharpie 5 pck black - $0.99
*Pens pck - $0.05
*See-thru Ruler- $1.49 (Sewing)
*Memo Cube - $0.50
*Soft-Cover Binders - $0.33 (25 cents last year.)
*2pt folders - $0.05 (Teachers can get it for a penny)
*Filler Paper - $0.69 (A Bummer this year.)
*6pk Staples notebooks - $0.54
*Sharpie Accent Highlighters - $0.99
*Staples Pencil Sharpener - $0.05

Yay I’m done. Mom is asking me to call T-Mobile to ask about our rebates. Mom had issues with the Post Office not doing their job either. And the deal is, they’re making her pay for the postage again, with no guarantee that’ll it’ll get delivered because the address isn’t verified. Lol. So yeah. Have a nice weekend. 1:19 A.M. Work tomorrow. 2 jobs as a High School Student. How fun.

    I envy you guys for the coupons. In Canada, there's not a lot of good coupons available. I get free school supplies sometimes with my dad's card. His company needs some things sometimes there so he charges the reward card or something and he gets a certain percentage off. In costco too. He got around 200$ in cheque and when he buys something, he get the rest of the money in cash.
