Nice quick moneymaking trip to Rite Aid today!

They have a $10 rebate this week when you buy 3 packs of Huggies.

I bought 3 packs of the Huggies Pure&Natural diapers for $11 each on sale.

-$5 off $25 purchase coupon

-$11 coupon (one free pack) from previous Rite Aid rebate -came in the mail yesterday

-2x $3 Huggies Mfr coupons

-2x $2 Rite Aid Huggies coupons earned from watching ad clips on their website

-$10 Rebate

= PROFIT $3 after rebate!

(I think this qualifies for a $.75/pack rebate from Caregivers Marketplace, too.)

*Even if you don't have the free pack of Huggies coupon, you can get all the others and pay next to nothing for 3 packs.

THEN I got:

4 Tubs of Huggies Wipes at $2.50 each

1 Package of Mounds snack size for $1 (Hey, I was hungry!)

1 Bottle of Proantiox something or other $6.99 (what is it??, good PROFIT!)

2 Bottles Clean & Clear face wash for $9

-$5 off $20 purchase coupon from watching ads on RiteAid website

-2x $3 Clean & Clear Rite Aid coupons from watching ads

-2x $2 Clean & Clear printable coupons

-$3 Proantiox Rite Aid coupon from watching ads

-4x $2 off Huggies product printable coupons!

-$1 Huggies wipes rebate

-$7 Proantiox rebate

=$7.01 PROFIT after rebates (would have been $8 without the Mounds bars!)

BUT WAIT, There's MORE!

Rite Aid is also running their Gift of Savings program concurrently! When you register your purchases online for rebates, you also can earn up to $20 back if you spend over $100 (before coupons, I think) before October 17!

So even though I spent only $7.99 out of pocket today, I think my purchases will give me $33 and $26.99 toward the program, which earns me another $10 (for spending $51 to $100)!

Gotta love it!

### All This FREE, Plus $6 Profit

Hauled ALL THIS in today from Rite-Aid, CVS, and Walgreens, along with $6 total profit after rebates! I managed to net a small profit at each store making these purhases. Using gift cards and reward coupons I already had, I think I spent less than 5 dollars out of pocket, too!

Because of the one coupon per item rule and the inability to use register reward coupons to buy the same product and get more register rewards, I had to do 4 transactions to get all of this stuff.

### FIVE coupon inserts in today's paper!

If you clip coupons, and you didn't get a Sunday newspaper today, you're missing out.

The Boston Globe had FIVE inserts - two from Smartsource, two from Redplum, and one from General Mills. My local paper (less than half the price) had four of the inserts, which is rare.

Haven't thumbed through yet, but with all those coupons, it's bound to be worth buying several copies.

### End of a Season

My local CVS has all of their summer junk on 90% OFF clearance I loaded a cart with 20-cent party napkins, bubble soap, water balloons, beach balls, some inflatable water squirty thing, a pair of 80-cent croc-style flipflops, and a pantload of other sundries, and it only came to about 12 bucks. Add a bottle of ajax dish detergent (free after $1 printable coupon), a Lifelock home theft system CD (Free after extra bucks) and some clearance snacks to break $20 and use a $4 off coupon to boot!

Regular price for everything I got was probably close to $200. I paid $13 in Extra Care Bucks and about one buck in cash, with $3 ECB back.

Not sure if every CVS is doing 90% clearance, but it's worth a shot. They had some colorful plastic dinnerware as well. You could buy a whole set for picnics for a couple bucks.

### Got 5 free pints of Starbucks, plus $$ back @ Walgreens

Yeah, so remember when Starbucks was giving away coupons for free pints of their ice cream a while back? They came in handy this week at Walgreens.

(There are also $2 off coupons from Sunday papers a month or more back and $1 printable coupons that are still available that you can use.)

Walgreens has Starbucks ice cream for $3 a pint, with a $5 reward that prints out when you buy $15 worth. I bought 5, used $12 in coupons, and got $5 back. Profit:$3, plus lots of ice cream.

Even just using the $1 printable coupon it works out to a buck a pint, which is really good unless you don't like coffee ice cream. Starbucks only makes coffee-based flavors.

Also got free Aquafresh toothpaste after rewards and a $2 coupon the Walgreens register printed out last week, Plus a free scrubbing bubbles shower cleaner, which was $6.99 after register rewards minus $7 printable coupon. We already have the motorized sprayer machine hanging in the shower, but it comes with two bottles of the refill PLUS a 4-pack of energizer batteries to run the machine. I feel bad trashing the sprayer part, but for free batteries and 2 refills, it was a good deal.

I also got a free Glade scented oil warmer with 2 bottles of the oil in it, after a coupon and register reward.

Because Walgreens only lets you use one coupon peritem, I had to pad my order with some non-free things in order to pay with last week's register rewards - so it wasn't entirely free. I need to figure out some cheap item that I actually will use that will work. When they had 9-cent school supplies this summer, they came in handy for that.
