Walmart 3/08

Walmart recently put out a new policy that allows for overage. Here's what I noticed on my trip today.

I did a transaction which included:
2x Tide Travel $0.97 used $1/1
1x Purex trial $0.97 used $3/1
3x Gain @ $1.87 used $3/1
1x Gain @ $4.33 used $3/1
1x Downy Wrinkle Release trial $1.48 used $1/1

here's what happened:
1 Tide beeped for valid coupon amount (VCA), 1 said item not in transaction (what the cashier said the computer told her, I couldn't see that one)
Purex beeped for VCA
2x Gain scanned
2x Gain said items not in transaction
Downy scanned (no overage on that one)

I had a nice cashier who wasn't upset at all when I asked her to get a manager. Manager came over and told her to enter the ones it wasn't taking it manually as a vendor coupon (she didn't know how, but he showed her). He was nice as well, no one mentioned the new policy and I didn't ask bc DS 10 months was being psycho :)

Walgreens Ideas week of 3/6-3/12

Recently there was a $3/2 Pedia Care products printable. I wanted to use the coupon at Walgreens to get overage with this weeks in ad coupon. I messed up because the more expensive 1 oz looks exactly like the .5 oz, so be careful!

Here's what I got:
3x Pedia Care infant pain reliever .5 oz @ $5.99
1x Pedia Care infant pain reliever 1 oz @ $9.99
Always Pantiliners $2.99
Cadbury egg $0.59 (filler)

2x $3/2 Pedia Care IP
1 Always $1/1 from home mailer
in ad Q for $5 off each Pedia Care (took off $20)
$3 RR from last week Baby Magic
= $1.54 + tax
got back a $2 RR from Always

If I'd gotten the correct Pedia Care I would not have had to use my RR, OOP would have been $0.54 and I would have gotten the $2 RR.
There is a new printable up here for $2/1 Pedia Care product. This makes for an even better deal if your Wags has the $5.99 Infant pain reliever. 

Here's a couple of ideas:
2x Infant pain relief @ $5.99 each
Always $2.99
- $2 Pedia Care
- $2 Pedia Care
- $1 Always mailer or $0.50 from P&G insert
- $5 off Pedia Care in ad Q 
= negative $0.03 so find a cheap filler :)
get back $2 Always RR

2x Infant pain relief @ $5.99 each
2x Softsoap Body Wash on sale 2/$7
- $2 Pedia Care
- $2 Pedia Care
- $5 in ad Q for Pedia Care
= OOP $4.98 and you get back a $5 RR for Softsoap
