Drugstore rebate games - March Totals

March 22nd, 2007 at 06:36 pm

As you may recall, I am unemployed and I have an excess amount of time on my hands. (Excess time, not cash!) In the past couple of months I have really upped my coupon usage (but only when it makes sense). I have also started playing the drugstore games at two of the national chains. I decided to share my success for the March rebate period.

There is one week left in March but I think I'm done shopping!

    What is WAG???

  3. shiela Says:

    WOW! I wish we could get those deals here.

  4. daylily Says:

    littlemama: WAG = Walgreens

    shiela: Do you have a RiteAid or CVS or Walgreens in your area?

  5. Fern Says:

    The problem at WAG's is that if you don't get within the first few days of themonth when a new sale starts, others will have picked the shelves clean of the rebated items.

    Do you find that sometimes you buy thing you wouldn't buy solely because of the coupons? I am finding that I did that a lot the first week, the second and third weeks it's been better.

    Worse however is the fact I'm stockpiling free stuff I really don't need. I think I'm going to stop at a reasonable number. My DH gives me a lot of trouble for buying stuff we don't need and a lot more hassle for stockpiling. He seems to get very angry even if it's free.

    I wonder if this couponing experiement will work for me. I subscribed for 13 weeks of the newspaper so we'll see.
