Rite Aid: Possible Double Dip on Garnier Skin Care! Money Maker Deal!

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

Some of you know that, in addition to my Walgreens Forum Leader gig at AFC, I’m also the Forum Leader for Rite Aid.  Meh, you know I love it.  Anyhoo, I’m hearing reports all over the place that this deal is working now.  What’s working, you ask?  OK, are you ready for this:

$10 UP Rewards on 3 Garnier Skin Care Products (ends 4/3)  If this seems familiar, this has been running throughout the month.  If you’ve done it twice, you’re out of luck.  That’s the limit.

Starting 3/27 ,  a new Buy $15 Get $5 UP Rewards on Garnier (lim 4) came down the pipe.  It was supposed to start on 3/30.

Now, you know my go-to is the Moisture Rescue Gel

1 – Garnier Moisture Rescue Gel $8.49
1 – Garnier Nutritioniste Towelettes $6.49
Total: $14.98 (should round up)
1 – $2.00/1 1/8RP or 3/11RP or 4/1RP
or $1.00/1 3/18RP or HERE
1 – $1.00/1 2/5RP

Get $10 UP Reward on 3
Get $5 UP Reward on $15
Final after UP: $3.02 Moneymaker!

Get $5 UP on $15
Final after UP: $0.78 Moneymaker!

I’m going to tell you right now that Rite Aid has been shutting these deals down as fast as they get off the ground.  If you want to take advantage of this, you had better do it in the next 12-18 hours.

Thanks to all my friends at AFC for this fabulous information.

Target 4/1-4/7: Dora’s Easter Adventure $3.99!

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

Don’t start throwing expired coupons at me if you’ve already bought this!  Sometimes it pays to procrastinate here and there…although my Type A freakishness knows nothing about that.  I tell you, if this had been on my *critical* list, I’d be crabbing about it as well.  I really wanted to pick it up for my girlie, so I don’t know how it managed to escape that list!

Starting  Sunday, April 1st (yay April…booo April Fools Day), Dora’s Easter Adventure DVD will be on sale for $6.99.  Use that fab $3.00/1 coupon to get it for just $3.99.

Now, if you’ve already bought the doggone thing, take your receipt back for a price adjustment.  I know it’s a pain, but worth it!  🙂

Thanks, My Frugal Adventures!

Walgreens Updates: Clearance and Q&A! Free Poise Liners, Cheap T-Shirts, Ben 10 & 1/2 Off Organic Similac!

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

First, the Q & A because Forum Leader for Walgreens at AFC = I’m getting a lot of questions this week!  Here are the most common:

Q:  If I try to use the ad coupon and the booklet coupon for the trash bag deal, will they beep?

A:  Aaah nope.  If they did, I’d be hearing all about it and passing it along to you.  When I bought mine, I gave  the ad coupon first, then the booklet coupon.  That’s what I recommend you do as well.   Worked like a charm.

I also stumbled across rows and rows of the new Allergy coupon booklet, which is good because that crazy thing seems to be throwing curve balls, too.

Q:  I tried to use an IVC (Instant Value Coupon) from the Allergy booklet with a manufacturer coupon and they told me I couldn’t because they’re both manufacturer coupons.  Did the policy change?/Are they crazy?/Am I crazy?  Take your pick.

There ARE manufacturer coupons & instant value coupons inside.  Now that I have the actual booklet myself, the problem is clear.  The Instant Value Coupons are generally thought of as Walgreens coupons, but the bar code is what differentiates a Walgreens Instant Value Coupon from a Manufacturer Instant Value Coupon.  On top of that, some of the bar codes on the IVC coupons are the new manufacturer DataBar codes, and some start with a 5, which we’re used to using to identify a manufacturer coupon.  Rule of thumb, four digit code = Walgreens coupon.  Anything else is a manufacturer coupon.

Again, here is the list of included coupons.  The breakdown IS correct.  🙂  Some IVC’s ARE manufacturer coupons.
All coupons valid through 3/1/2013.

Manufacturer Coupons
$1.00/1 Alaway Eye Drops 0.34oz
$2.00/1 Alavert Sinus and Allergy
$1.00/1 Allegra Childrens

$1.00/1 Similasan Allergy Eye Product
$4.00/1 Zyrtec Liquigels 25ct

I snapped a picture of this shelf of t-shirts because they’re $1.  Keep these in mind if you need tees for art projects, etc.  They’ve got red and green – perfect for Christmas, Valentine’s Day & St. Patrick’s Day (plan ahead).  Orange and black are great for Halloween.  White works for everything!  Pick a few up if your Dollar Store doesn’t have the right color combinations.  You definitely don’t want to overpay at Hobby Lobby or someplace like that!

Office Depot: FREE 25 Black & White Copies & 5 Pounds of Shredding!

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

Our shredder died a long time ago.  Would you like to know why?  Well, I’ve told you before that I’m a total Type A…all the time.  In my case, Type A = Horribly Impatient.  Not knowing anything about shredders (techno-dork) now or 108 years ago, I bought the most inexpensive one out there.    Inexpensive must equal a shredding rate of one document in 24 hours.  Oh. my. gosh., that thing was so slooooow.  I got a headache just looking at it.  You don’t want to know what went through my head when I figured out I could rip the paper up into teensy tiny portions by the time that crummy thing finished shredding ONE piece of paper.  Haha!  Anyhoo, long story short, I overloaded it.  The paper jammed.  It never unjammed.  Junky piece of…JUNK.  Back then, it didn’t matter too much though.  After all, a twenty something only has about 6 papers that actually HAVE to be destroyed.  Marriage + Kids =They multiply now!?!  When did that happen?

If you’re planning on heading over to Office Depot for some super cheap office supplies, take a stack of shredables with you!  They’ll shred up to 5 lbs of them for free.   And if you need some single sided black & white copies?  Yep, they’ll give you 25 of those for free, too.

The best part?  No coupon required.  This offer is available through April 16, 2012.

Thanks, Freebies 4 Mom!

Feel Good Fix: Egg Decorating PAAS App for iPad & Make-A-Wish Foundation!

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.


I’ve got a list of Feel Good Fixes to the moon, I think.  Sometimes it’s tough to decide which one to do next!  But since this one is seasonally appropriate AND super cute, it earns the mention this week.  Too bad it’s only for an iPad.  Nevertheless, if you have one, you can download the PAAS/Heinz Egg Decorator app for FREE and dye & share Easter eggs.  When you share them, PAAS and Heinz will donate $1 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation for EACH egg shared.   Isn’t that great?

Reminder/New to You:  When you see a post titled *Feel Good Fix*, you can be sure it is a good way to make a donation to a worthy cause with no cost to you.  Generally, this can be done with just a click or two of your mouse!  Many times, organizations have promotions on Facebook or the web where all you have to do is like them or make a comment and they’ll donate something on your behalf – food, money, water, and many other things.  I try to profile at least one a week, sometimes more!
