If you need a deal idea, one shopper posted that she bought (2) shampoo/conditioner at $7.99, and (1) travel size at $1.49 just to see if it would count for the deal (it didn't). But they were able to use (3) $5.00 mq's and paid about $2.50 oop. Then they went back and bought another $7.99 shampoo, used a $5.00 mq, and paid about $3.00 oop. Then got the $10 ECB, making it a $4.50 profit.
I guess you could buy all three shampoo/conditioners and a travel size one to be able to use the 4th mq in one order.
Anyway, I had rainchecks from when the JF was on sale for $5.00 and get $3.00 ECB wyb 2 a few weeks ago, so I bought (2) at one store: $5.00 RC - $5.00 mq = Free; get $3.00 ECB; then did the same deal at another store, and also got the $10 ECB.
Free shampoo and $16.00 profit, Yay!
(Sorry, free Styler stuff)
The Pepto is on sale $4.99, get $2.00 ECB. There's a - I think the amount it - .50 mq in the 7/03 PG, which I didn't get. But I thought $2.99 was a pretty good price to pay for it, and I had ECBs to spend.
I also bought the Hershey's syrup and milk (not on sale) and Coke, on sale for .69, to spend ECBs.
All (4) of my family's cards scanned at the Red Machine today gave Free Hershey's Air Whipped Candy Bar and $2.00 off Skittles, Starburst or Lifesavers coupons (CRTs).
The stores were out of the Air whipped, but the other Hershey bars worked without beeping. (The first guy told me to subsitute; I just took it upon myself to do it at the other stores and they either didn't notice or care.)
Skittles and Starburst are on sale 2/$5.00, or $2.50 each, so cost .50 after CRT.
$14.18 ECBs spent
$0.87 + 2.12 tax = $2.99 cash oop
$18.00 ECBs earned
Final Total $0.83 profit
