A quick WAGS trip

I decided to make a quick WAGS run today, because I had a 10% off $35 DQ. 

Trans 1

1 x Purex detergent $1.99
2 x Revlon foundation B1G50% off 2nd $20.73
4 x Softsoap (deluxe size) B1G50% off 2nd $8.96
1 x Loreal cleanser $5.59
2 x Revlon nail clippers $7.08

Less 10% DQ (4.44)
Less Purex DQ (1.00)
Less Revlon q (5.00)
Less Revlon DQ (5.00)
Less Loreal DQ (5.00)
Less 2 Softsoap qs (1.00)
Less BR Points (20.00)
Tax 2.39
OOP $5.30

Earned $12 BR points ($4 Softsoap, $3 Revlon clippers, $5 Beauty)

Had my transactions nicely planned out, until I got to WAGS and discovered they're out of the regular Softsoap hand soap which is $1.99 each, compared to the $2.99 I paid. So I had to rework my scenario. Thankfully I had 2 Softsoap qs with me, that I was gonna use at Dollar Tree afterwards (we need more Softsoap like I need a hole in the head. I'm gonna google hand soap to see what else it can be used for). I added the clippers, because they earned BR points and I wanted to be able to use $20 BR points. The kicker is that I have clippers qs at home.

Can y'all believe that I'm on my last face wash tube?! I normally use the Loreal Revitalift, but the 2 they had left in store were covered in dust & dirt. Yuck! I was so happy to see a $5 Loreal skincare q, which gave me super cheap face wash

Trans 2

2 x Dixie Plates $4.58
2 x Bic Razors B1G50% off 2nd $10.18
1 x Purex detergent $1.99
Less Bic DQ (3.00)
Less Bic q (3.00)
Less RR from last week's Revlon deal (8.00)
Tax 1.01
OOP $3.76

Earned $3 BR points (Bic)

Total OOP today : $9.06
Total rewards spent $28.00
Total rewards earned $15.00
Total savings : $61.39

The Dixie plates were supposed to be part of transaction one. My plan was to just buy the razors in this transaction (you can't use points when you have to spend X amount to earn reward), but I didn't want to pay $4 + tax OOP. So I added more items so I could use the $8 RR. Then I needed a filler item and thought that an 87c candy bar would do no good. Might as well grab something we can use, so I got the Purex. Well I now see that my Dixie DQ didn't deduct. It was only $1, but that would've lowered my OOP, right...lol

So far only the Garnier shampoo deal looks good at CVS this week. I haven't checked the RA ad yet.

Let me just say I was so happy to see that RMN coupon inserts were back in our papers on Sunday. We were away for the weekend, so when we got home Sunday night, I made a quick trip to Meijer for newspapers. I really wanted those BOGOF Revlon qs. So I open the first paper to make sure there are coupons inside & notice 2 inserts. What?! I was really shocked to see the RMN, so I grabbed 3 papers.Yes, I paid $9 for it, but it was worth every penny. I've already saved $9 just by using the $5 Revlon, $3 Bic & 50c Softsoap qs. And that was just from one insert.

I can't remember the last time we got RMN in the Sunday papers (probably 2 years ago). I hope this will continue. I also received a RMN insert in the mail today, so happy dance.

I didn't do the Revlon lip/eye deal at WAGS this week. It's B1G50% off 2nd, earn $5 RR. I know that they're sold out of the lower priced items, because they had a great Revlon sale last week. I also know that the register will deduct the lowest price item as free. In 2 weeks time, they'll have a $10 RR WYB 2 Revlon items, so I'm saving my qs until then. I want to cash in on the full q value and earn a bigger RR :)

Hope everyone has a good shopping week.


  1. Great job on the coupon savings!

  2. Another great job saving money! Coupons just overwhelm me.

    1. Thank you Lisa! Coupons can be overwhelming, but you get used to it the more you do it.
