The first store didn't carry the sunglasses, so I got
$0.00 TP BOGO Sale
$3.99 Carefree x 3
$0.00 Carefree x 3 BOGO Sale
-5.00/20.00 Vv q
-2.00 Coppertone in-ad q
-3.00 Coppertone Vv q
-1.00 Coppertone IP MQ
-3.99 Carefree BOGO MQ x 3
Final Total $0.17 + 1.67 tax = $1.84 from gift card
This next deal was a small money-maker, but hey, money is money, and free stuff is free stuff, right.
Before I left the house I was reminded that there were other $/$$ coupons in addition to the $5/$20, so I figured if I used a different one of those coupons, they wouldn't say anything if I did more than one trans at a store. I'm thinking they wouldn't have anyway, they were all good about just scanning everything I had today, but best to not test fate.
$5.99 Venus Tropical Disp Razors
$5.49 Clearsil pad/wipes things
$0.00 Carefree BOGO Sale
$0.99 Yoohoo drinks
-5.00/20.00 Vv q
-2.00 Venus MQ 6/06 PG (I think)
-3.00 Clearasil in-ad q
-3.00 Clearasil Vv q
-3.00 Veet in-ad q
-3.00 Veet Vv q
Final total -.04 + 1.04 tax = $1.00 from gift card
Got $2.00 +UP for Venus = $1.00 profit (and all that stuff free)
There were other MQs for the Clearasil, and possibly the Veet, that I didn't have, so if you have those q's, you could get more free, maybe some SCR item or another +UP item (not Venus).
The other shop I did at this store I got the sunglasses and used the overage to buy the last two Banana Boat sticks I needed to complete a skincare deal (I might do that again, I have two more days, lol), and another Coppertone, and a couple more packs of TP. Can't have enough TP.
Final Total $0.15 + 1.69 tax = $1.84 from gift card
At the last store, I don't know what happened, I seemed to have went suddenly brain-dead or something. I have a hard time with numbers and figures anyway, so I have to write down everything and use a calculator to add/subtract....but when the numbers quit adding up even when I'm doing that, well, I just don't know what to think.
The first order I bought the sunglasses, a Coppertone, and got the Venus razors with the rest of the overage. Still had a $1.04 left, so I got a couple bags of the lifesavers on sale for .99 each, and I had a $1.00/2 coupon.
At first I tried getting away with getting gummy-sour lifesavers, because we like gummy-sour candy, and not hard lifesavers or mints. But the stupid coupon beeped "Matching item not found" or some such, which made the lady read the coupon and she decided I had got the wrong thing. So I went back andgot the hard candies, and the coupon still beeped as item not found. So she typed it in manually then.
After I was done, I asked to do an exchange on the lifesavers and she told me "No".
Final total -.06 + 1.95 tax = $1.89 from gift card
Rec'd $2.00 +UP Venus = $0.11 profit
Well it took me until now to realize what happened with the last order. I added, added, and re-added, and it didn't make a bit of sense.
I see now my $3.00/2 John Frieda tearpad coupon only rang as $1.00 instead. How stupid is that??
Oh well. I still made a profit, can't complain too much. But I'll be watching this one more closely next time!
Final total $2.50 + 1.61 tax = $4.11 from gift card
Rec'd $10.00 +UP = $5.89 profit
