Wag's Trip 1/3
Well I have been off the Wag's wagon for quite a while now, but since my crazy semester is over and I have more time on my hands now, I decided to jump back in. So I took a trip today (with Penny in tow) and got a few things. I paid more OOP than I usually would since I didn't have any RRs to start out with. Here's what I got:
2 Halls @ $1 ea. - used $1/2 MFQ = .50 ea.
1 Finish @ $3.49 - used $2.25 MFQ = $1.24 + got $1.50 RR = .26 moneymaker!
2 Blue Diamond almonds 1 lb. bags @ $4.99 ea. - used .75/2 MFQ = $4.62 ea. (these are $7.99 usually!)
4 Reese's cups @ .49 ea. - used in-ad Q to make them .49 and (2)B1G1 MFQs (these actually took off the pre-Q price of .89 I think) = Free-ish?
1 Children's Oscillinium flu med @ $8.99 - used $2/1 printable = $6.99 + got $9 RR = $2.01 moneymaker!
1 Huggies little snugglers @ $6.99 - used $2.50/1 printable = $4.49
OOP = $24.53
+ got $10.50 RRs
net = $14.03
1 Finish = .26 MM
1 Oscillinium = $2.01 MM
OOP = $9.04
+ got $10.50 RR
net = 1.46 profit!
NOTE: I couldn't use my RRs from trans #1 to pay for trans #2 b/c you can't use an RR to buy the same deal again and get the RR again. If that doesn't make sense, go to one of the blogs on my list and read there FAQ about how to deal with Wag's. Their program can be a bit complicated...
Hamster slippers @ $9.99 (this was a total impulse buy, but I just thought they were so cute and I have been wanting to get Penny some slippers, so I seized the day).
- used $9 RR
OOP = $1.64
So in total I spent $35.21 and have $12 RRs left to use on my next purchase. Plus I got 2 catalinas for free Breath Rite strips. Free is always nice.
According to my receipts $42.73 with sales and MFQs. In other words, I saved more than I spent, which is always a goal.
