Wags Round 2

I went back to Wags today, because I saw that DH had a $7 WYS $20 booster Q on his account. Sorry, I didn't feel like hauling out all the detergents to photograph.



Trans 1 (DH)

2 x Oral b t/b $6.00

2 x Revlon balm B1G50% off 2nd 7.48

1 x Irish Spring b/w 3.99

1 x Softsoap b/w 3.99

Less Oral b DQ (3.00)

Less Irish Spring DQ (2.00)

Less Softsoap DQ (2.00)

Tax 1.29

OOP $14.46

Earned $9 RR ($4 Oral b, $5 Revlon) + $7 WC booster points

Total earned back $16. I'm hoping that the Oral B will reset on Ibotta, because that will give me an extra $2 back.

The CAT machine also spit out a $6 WYS $25 Booster Q, which came in handy for my 2nd transaction



Trans 2 (my account)

4 x Gain detergent $19.96

2 x Gain flings 9.98

Less RRs from Trans 1 & earlier this week (18.00)

Tax 1.80

OOP $13.74

Earned $19 WC ($10 WYB 6 PG items, $6 Booster from Trans 1, $3 Digital booster)

I had no idea that my digital booster would work multiple times, because I had already redeemed it earlier this week. 

In hindsight, I could've used this on DH's account, since he has a $7 digital booster. My initial plan was to use RRs & WC to pay, that's why I used my account. DH only had $2 WC on his account when I went shopping, which isn't nearly enough to pay if I didn't use boosters. 

As a rule, I never buy detergent pods. However, this store only had 4 bottles of the original scent. I didn't like the other Gain scents and didn't need Dawn, Swiffer wipes or paper products.


Store 2 (my account, since I have oodles of WC to use)

2 x Old Spice b/w $12.00

1 x Softsoap b/w 3.99

Less Old Spice DQ (4.00)

Less Softsoap DQ (2.00)

Less WC (10.00)

Tax 0.96

OOP $0.95

Earned $4 RR (Old Spice)


Total OOP $29.15

Total earned : $39.00

Total rewards used : $10.00

Total Qs used : $31.00

Retail value : 89.85


I might go get more Old Spice b/w, because I really like this scent. It reminds me of the 3 in 1 Old Spice b/w that DS used before. He used it when we were in Cape Town for my dad's funeral, so it always reminds me of my dad. I know that sounds weird, but I was the apple of my dad's eye and I treasure anything that reminds me of him. Also, my dad used Old Spice (different scent) for many years when I was a kid. I like this fresh scent. It also kinda reminds me of the ocean (it's so crisp & fresh). I grew up by the ocean (or I should say 2 oceans, since Cape Town is at the southernmost tip of Africa and we enjoy beaches on both the Atlantic & Indian oceans' sides), so I love anything that reminds me of the sea, like fresh scents, any nautical things, all things blue (I guess I get my love for this color, because of the color of the sea). Can anyone who live or grew up by the ocean relate to this?

I just checked the Old Spice site and it looks like the 3 in 1 has been discontinued. I guess this is the newer version of it. So glad I found it though.

I still have 3 Old Spice DQs that expire on Saturday, so I can use points to pay. It's also a plus that these are bonus size bottles.

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...
