I purchased 2 Halls, 3 Ludens and 4 Lip Balm. Total before sale and coupons would have been just over $21.00. All these items are on sale for $1.00. So even without coupons that is a great deal. I use my 50 cent Halls coupon from Sundays paper. I have only 1 but I have two 50 cent Halls video value coupons. I can use one video value coupon per one manufacturer coupon together. I also have three 55 cent Ludens coupons from the paper. And I was able to get 2 coupons for Nivea via the Internet ($2.00 off of two). Then I used two $1.00 video value coupons. I paid 77 cents out of pocket.
Tip one: Save your coupon inserts from the Sunday paper. I do not normally buy razors, so I did not clip out those coupons. But when I saw I could get paid to buy them, I was happy I still had the inserts.
Tip Two: Don't be greedy. Many times I get to the store just after a lady bought 20 of one item. So there were none left for me or anyone else. This happen yesterday with an item I was going to buy at Rite Aid. Only buy what you need! If your shelves are over packed, then give a bunch away before you go buying more.
Mat. 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: Mat 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: Mat 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Tip Three: Take the time to watch the video values and get that free cash. Sometimes they even have $4.00 or $5.00 or even $20.00 events. And here is my trick. I'm not crazy about commercials. I also dislike the beauty commercials because the women wear very little. So as I am cooking dinner I play the commercials with my lap top almost closed so I can't see them. When I here that it is over (volume on real low) I click in the code to get my coupon. Woot!
Tip Four: Watch your coupons and make sure they get scanned. Rite Aid has very slow scanners and sometimes, like yesterday they miss a coupon if they scan too fast. On my second visit they missed one of my 50 cent coupons.
