Grocery/Drugstores Sep 28

Grocery this week: $57.90 (but $17.38 are for others, gifts or cooking for others) and also we have a guest coming tomorrow! (I'm really excited about that! (So actual grocery - $40.52, including fruits!) (I think I'm missing out a couple things, may have to top a $5 this week)

Drugstores. It's DIAPERS/Gillette Fusion STOCK-UP TIME! =)

Walgreens:
Huggies/Wipes/Kotex pads RR deal (did 3 runs of these):
Buy $14 get $3 RR
So we got

(1st transaction)
Dipes (9.99) + Wipes (5.99) - $0.50 Wipes MQ, $3 RR
Gillette Fusion $8.99 - $4 MQ, $4 RR
Used $10 RR from before

(2nd transaction)
Dipes (9.99) + Wipes (5.99) - $0.50 Wipes MQ, $3 RR

(3rd transaction)
Dipes (9.99) + Kotex Lightdays (5) - $1 Kotex MQ + Newspapers (more great coupons!), $3 RR

I'm filing in caregivers marketplace rebate for $3 back

CVS:
This is the store that really got me today. After we scan $4/20 coupon, we can't use our $10 ECB from last week. How come? The balance is a lot more than $10. It's just frustrating how these computers are so inconsistent. Are there rules about this? I don't want to waste my time next time! We had to spend a LONG time in CVS thinking through what to buy then, and thus I missed out some coupons and some deals. GRRR...

Still, we got
Gillette Fusion $9.99 - $4 MQ, $5 ECB
2 Dawn - $0.99 each - $1 off 2
floss (I need that) - $1.49
2 packs of pampers - $9.99 - $1.50 MQ each (these contribute to the last of our gifts to grow points to 100, so we can redeem a free photobook for our Christmas present
and cover girl Clean foundation - $5.49 - $1, $5.49 ECB
Cover Girl blush - $4.19 - free (BOGO coupon)

Used a $2/10 coupon and $10 ECB from before (rolled 1 $5.49 ECB)

Rite Aid
Gillette Fusion (YES! It's Gillette Fusion day!) $9 - $4 MQ, $5 rebate (I pay $0.75 for tax)

TOTAL AT DRUGSTORES:
Spent: $55.37 (I count RR and ECB used to pay as cash and I deduct the ECB and RR I get back).
That's $55.37 for all those above, 120 pieces of size 3 dipes, 60 pieces of size 5 dipes, THREE Gillette Fusion (with catridges), 2 packs of wipes, Kotex lightdays, dishwashing liquid and others.

In perspective...If I buy the dipes, wipes, lightdays, dishwashing liquid and floss at where I would normally do (BJs or other discounted place), I'll would have $2 left to spend on the 3 Gillette Fusion and Cover Girl Make up. That's pretty cool I think.

How do the rebates at Rite Aid work? My husband called today to tell me about their Fusion deal. Do you need to mail it out or does it print like the ECBs?

Great shopping!

Check out my post - I had the same frustration! I was wondering if anyone else ran into the same problem. Did you ever find out what the deal is with not being able to use all of your ECB's?

I think at both CVS and Walgreens you need one item per coupon used (including 4/20 and ECBs). I could be wrong but I thought I read that somewhere. Your order looks ok to me, but I could have missed something. Of course it could just be CVS cracking down.

Oh, and why didn't you just get your floss free at Wags last week? : )
