Patrick's Walgreens Trip - 9/30


Here's the breakdown of my trip to Walgreens today, which I did four separate, identical transactions.  I had the four $4 Venus coupons expiring so I wanted to make sure that I used them on the best deal.  Keep in mind that most Register Rewards will not roll on transactions for like items, so on these transactions today, I used RR's from last week.  Here's what I did:

Glade FREEBIES at Walmart!


Well, I had two $2/2 Glade Coupons that were set to expire today and I ventured out at Walmart after my drugstore trips this morning to see if I could put them to good use!   I was able to get 4 Glade aerosol sprays for $0.98 each or FREE after coupon!  The coupon says "Excludes 8 oz. room spray and solid air freshener."  The sprays that I bought are 9 oz., so they worked just fine!  Click on the link below to grab yours if you haven't already!
