Great Robitussin Deal at Wags

I've done the great deal at Wags-Buy 5 $4 Robitussins for $20-$5 in $1 Manu Q's-$10 RR=$5 OOP
RECEIVE...$5 RR + $10 RR +$5 RR...This deal is good until 12/31/08.

I was able to do this deal 4 times- 3 times with Robitussin and 1 time with Dimetapp ( I used every single $1 Robitussin and Dimetapp Q I had-some people are printing out internet $2 Q's and making this deal a bigger money maker). But I decided to roll all of my $10 Conair Hairdryer RR's and all of them BEEPED! Now I have $90 in RR's-need to use them by 1/12/09!

Great time and deals at CVS

My gals and I went to CVS this AM at about 8:05. They were out of a few of the freebies already!! We got great deals and ran over to another CVS about 2 miles down the road. We were able to get most everything but the Arm and Hammer Essentials and the joint stuff for $29. Overall, we are VERY happy. The manager at the first CVS was so nice and commented on how nice it was for me to bring my daughters and "tutor" them on Q-poning.
I got quite a stash of ECBs...I just luv CVS.

Great shopping Day

I had a great shopping day!! It started off with a CVS run with my daughter Amanda. She is a Q-poner in training!! She was very pleased with her buys today! I had to get a prescription filled for my colonoscopy on Tuesday (boo) and we had to pass by the coupon spitter outer on the way to the pharmacy. Amanda scored a get a $25 GC for a NEW or transferred prescription and a $5/15!! My Q's were not exciting at all..... anyway, she suggested that we use her Q for my prescription since she doesn't need any prescribed meds!! Then she wanted me to have the GC!!

Well, we both had great deals and when Amanda checked out another $5/15 Q was added on to her receipt!! Of course, I got nothing!!

I decided to do some trading for that lovely GC-Amanda got a Crest Spin Tooth brush, 2 Arm and Hammer Laundry Detergents, and a $5 RR to use at Walgreens this week!

Later this afternoon, I went back to CVS. I wanted to finish my exedrin deal (bought 2 exedrin's in the morning and wanted to gather up 2 more Q's for this deal) and use my $5/30 email Q.

What a great deal-

2 exedrin ($5.39 each) 10.78

3 boxes of fiber one bars(3 x $10) 10.00

3boxes of fiber one caramel delight cereal. (3 x $10) 10.00
= 30.78
used 5/30 Q -5.00
man Qs -6.00
ECBs -18.99
TOTAL OOP CASH..........................................$0.79!!
RECEIVED $20.00 in ECB's

Tuesday, December 9, 2008


I'm looking forward to this week's midweek deal --spend $25-get $5 RR-my plan is to buy some Arm and Hammer laundry detergent and fillers. I also want to get the Loreal Pro Calcium for the rebate-and it's 25% off this week. I have several $5 RR's to roll from last week's midweek deal-I got a whole heap of Walitin last week-realized I could roll those RR's and get great deals.....I was in Q-pon heaven. I plan to get several Arm and Hammer detergents tomorrow!!

I've had great luck using the maybelline BOGO this week with the $4 lipstick/gloss Q-I was able to use 2 $4 Q's at 2 different stores and got the overage to pay for other great deals. My daughter was not as lucky-the WAG's we went to last night would only let her use 1 Q-said she could only use 1 Q b/c it was a BOGO...she was still happy with her deal-but it got me upset-that WAG's always give me problems with Q's---I won't be going back to that WAG's-

On to CVS-I was given a 30% off friend's and family Q last Saturday!
I used it Sunday and practically finished my Christmas shopping! I bought some very nice gifts.
I took my daughter to CVS last night on a Q lesson-she got some great deals and received $13+ in ECB's-I gave her 2 Sunday papers, 2 Reinventing Beauty mags and 2 Diabetes books with Q's...

Perfect Deal at WAGS

I went in to grab the coke deal-buy $15 of products and get $5 RR-they didn't have enough diet coke, so I decided to grab 4 Walitin's that are on sale for $.99 with coupon. Total after coupon$3.96 and out popped a $5 RR.......because total was over $25 before coupon!!!
Yippee-we take Walitin every single day-this will really be put to good use. I've stopped at every Walgreen's I pass every day-will continue to take advantage of this deal until it is over.

I bought undies at WAGS

I decided to do the Hanes deal at Walgreens- I had the $5/$25 Q and needed some new bras.........2 bras came out to 14.96-they are 25% off this week (of course, my luck to be .04 short of $15, so I also got a sportsbra for $4.85 (not exactly sure of the price) more, so I got 3 bras for under $20, used the $5/$25 Q with some other items and got the $5 RR back.
