WAGS trip 9/3/19

Hi everyone

I apologise for my lack of posts. We returned from a week long vacation on Labor Day and then I was playing catch up with just about everything else. I turned off all electronics and just enjoyed some sun, sea & alcohol. It felt great to just unwind and not have a care in the world.  With 4th Quarter almost here, I'm working my heinie (behind) off. I'm now working 7 days a week, so blogging will have to take a back seat until the end of the year. I'll try to post whenever I can though. People are now in spending mode and I'm more than happy to rid them of their $$$....lol. I'm also working on my stockpile, but that's a post for another day.

I only hit WAGS the first week we got back, because I just didn't have the time or energy to look at ads for the other stores or go shopping.



Trans 1

2 x Crest t/p $7.98
1 x Tide 4.99
1 x Tide pods 4.99
1 x Charmin t/p 4.99
2 x Colgate t/p 8.00
1 x Toffifay 1.39
Less Crest q (2.00)
Less Crest DQ (2.00)
Less Tide DQ (2.00)
Less Tide pods DQ (2.00)
Less Charmin DQ (1.0)
Less Colgate DQ (4.00)
Less BR points (20.00)
Tax 1.86
OOP $1.25

Earned $4 BR (Colgate) & $0.50 Ibotta (Toffifay)

Now this would've been a perfect transaction, except NO RRs printed. CAT machine was on and I even asked the cashier if it was working and she said yes. So she called over a manager and explained the situation. I then showed the manager RR deals in the ad. Then she added $3 BR to my account then another $1 for the Crest deal. Now Ms Manager, y'all still owe me $6 for the Tide deal. Sigh. So she proceeded to add more small amounts to my account. This was another 10 minutes wasted at WAGS. Now, I don't blame the employees. Corporate should make sure that everything works smoothly. So I got back a total of $10 BR points. As she was adding my credits at the register, the CAT machine spit out a Q for Toffifay. Go figure.

To recap

OOP $1.25
BR spent $20.00
BR earned $14.00
Ibotta earned $0.50

So I spent down a total of $6 BR points

I had a RR that was expiring, so just grabbed some Ibotta items. Sorry no pic

2 x Chobani yogurt $2.00
Godiva masterpieces 2.99
Less RR (4.00)
OOP $0.99

Earned $1.50 Ibotta (50c Chobani, $1 Godiva)



The next day I went to a different WAGS and everything worked slick as snot. Weird!

Tide $4.99
Tide pods 4.99
Charmin t/p 4.99
Less Tide q (2.00)
Less Tide pods q (2.00)
Less Charmin q (1.00)
Less BR points (10.00)
Tax 0.90
OOP $0.87

Earned back $6 RR

Trans 2

2 x Colgate t/p $8.00
Less Colgate IP q (4.00)
Less BR points (4.00)
Tax 0.48
OOP $0.48

Earned $4 BR points

I have to see if I can submit my receipts for another $10 WAGS rebate (Tide/Charmin). I've already submitted a different receipt before, but I know there wasn't any limit stated on the rebate form. If it works, then all these items will be a small MM.

BR Points + RR Spent $38.00
Plus Total OOP $3.59
BR + RR Points earned ($30.00)
Ibotta earnings ($2.00)
Possible MIR ($10.00)
MM $0.41


I did a few more WAGS deal afterwards, but that will have to wait until another day.

  1. SO frustrating when things don't work and all we are trying to do is save some money.

    1. I agree. It's a never ending cycle at WAGS. RA & CVS usually work great. I just wish that WAGS would work great too, because I've been doing the bulk of my drugstore shopping there the past few months. Their deals rock and I still have almost $100 in rewards to use.

Wags made me broke over the course of 2 weeks!

Friendly warning. Long post, so grab a drink.  I apologise that this post is so late. I've been under tremendous strain the past 2 month...
