Nice Butt

Nice Butt

My cousin just got a job at Express for Women. It’s kind of random since my cousin is a guy. But, he has no problem [[un]]dressing women. I wonder if he’d have a problem ringing up my undergarment though.

Express emailed a printable coupon for a free Essential Cotton Panty in solid white, black, body beige, and pale pink styles only. There’s no purchase necessary, which means I’m absolutely getting a pair. The coupon is valid through March 1, while supplies last. And if you see my cousin, tell him I say hi.

If there isn’t an Express by you, fret not. Just go to the store’s Web site, pick what you want, and then checkout with the code 2737, and your free intimate will be on its way.

Good NyQuil

Good NyQuil

I can’t take NyQuil without it wiping me out for three days. Sometimes that’s what you want when you’re sick, but mostly, you just want to get better.

If you can take NyQuil — or DayQuil even — I’ve got a deal for you.

Backtrack for just one second.

If you sign up at cvs.com, you can get emails with coupons sent to you. So, assuming you’ve already done this, there was a coupon that came earlier in the week for $1 off a cold or allergy purchase of $3. NyQuil and DayQuil are $4.99 and you get back $5 wyb two. There were $1.50 coupons in the most recent two P&G inserts.

So, you’re looking at two transactions [[because the CVS coupon can only be used once per transaction]] of this: $4.99 NyQuil/DayQuil minus $1 CVS coupon and $1.50 manu. coupon equals $2.49. Do this twice to spend $4.98 and get back $5.

Looks good for those people who need to sleep better at night.

Saturday Sample: Oral B Advantage Floss Picks

Saturday Sample: Oral B Advantage Floss Picks

I was never a fan of floss. It would make my gums bleed. And no matter how much my hygienist tried to warn me about gingivitis, I couldn’t bring myself to floss.

And then a few months ago, Oral B Advantage Floss Picks were on sale for free at CVS.

I looked at the package in the store, and it was a show down. “I need these to complete my deals,” I thought, “But I don’t floss. I don’t like floss. I don’t have anyone to gift these floss picks to.”

The deal won out and I bought them, stuffing them into a drawer for a few days until I realized that another deal would work out great if only I could bring myself to buy another pack of floss picks. I figured if I was going to, I would have to try them.

I opened the pack and stared at the blue piece of plastic. It was me against it. And you know who won … my hygienist.

It was so easy to floss with these. I wasn’t sticking my entire hand in my mouth like I tended to do when I was using actual floss. And the little pick is so pliable and flexible, it wasn’t still and scary. And it fit in my mouth. It wasn’t some contraption I had to manipulate.

And the actual string of floss is usually enough to clean all my teeth. Sometimes I really go at it and the floss breaks off the pick, but usually, it’s pretty sturdy.

So now, I’ve joined the legions of flossers. Thank goodness I worked three packs into my past deals. That should last me a couple of months. But if I actually pay money for these, then I’ve really become a member of the floss club.

Rite Aid Shopping

Rite Aid Shopping

The $5 off coupon was burning a hole in my pocket, so I ran out to do a little damage at Rite Aid. Keep in mind, my mom and I were hungry when we were out, so snacks were definitely on the shopping list.

I bought:
Dr Pepper — $1.49 [[$1.49 free coupon]] = free
Dr Pepper — $1.49 [[$1.49 free coupon]] = free
Valentine’s cookie — on sale from $1.00 [[the sign said 75% off, so they should have been 25 cents, but I’m not complaining; it wasn’t Stop and Shop]] = 50 cents
Valentine’s cookie — on sale from $1.00 = 50 cents
Valentine’s cookie — on sale from $1.00 = 50 cents
Combos — on sale from $2.19 = 99 cents
Combos — on sale from $2.19 = 99 cents
Garnier Fructis — $2.99 [[$1 manu. coupon]] = $1.99
Zilctin — $4.99
10 SoyJoy bars — $5 [[$2 manu. coupon]] = $3.00
Hershey’s boxed heart — on sale from $4.99 = $1.24
Wrigley’s Juicy Fruit — BOGO sale = $1.29 [[$1.29 coupon from 02/22 SS]] = free
Wrigley’s Juicy Fruit — BOGO sale = free
$5/$20 coupon

Total after sales and coupons [[plus tax]] = $10.20

I’ll get back in rebates = $2.99 from the Garnier; $4.99 for the Zilactin; and $5 for the SoyJoy = $12.98

So I made $2.78 and got all my snacks for free. Not bad.

No Hassle Shopping

No Hassle Shopping

If you’re like me, when you’re at a supermarket and something rings up the wrong price, you pretty much make a fit about it until it’s the price marked or its free. At Stop and Shop and Giant [[since they’re sister stores]] you won’t have to throw a fit because with the company’s no hassle program, the front-end main cashier should automatically give it to you for free.

Since I work at a local Stop and Shop, I know personally that this doesn’t always work out that way. Usually the main cashier or customer service person just gives you the price adjustment for the product. Next time your item rings up wrong and the cashier tries to just put it in for the sale price, I would mention “Aren’t things that ring up wrong suppose to be free?” since you’re totally armed with this knowledge now. The cashier will moan but you will get it for nothing.

Triple Love For A&P

Triple Love For A&P

My dad used to work at A&P when he was a kid. I didn’t know him then — obviously — but A&P has always had a soft spot in my heart because of that. But, in my adult life, I’ve never once stepped into an A&P.

That’s all going to change today.

A&P is having four days of triples — coupons up to 99 cents — until March 2. You better believe Mallory and I are heading down there armed with coupons. We’ll bring a camera and will post the insanity when we get back. Our goal is $75 worth of stuff for $10. You’ll see how we did later.
