Two weeks of WAGS shopping

I really wasn't in the mood to do drugstore shopping last week, but I had $16 (4 x $4) RRs that were expiring and didn't want to let it go to waste. Most weeks the ads don't look promising, until some couponers go shopping. Last week we discovered that if you bought 3 or 4 select Oral B items, you'd earn 2 x $5 RRs (one store & one manufacturer RR). I needed no second invitation. I stopped at several stores and did 2 transactions per store, because I don't like holding up the line. 


Trans 1 (DH)

2 x Colgate t/p $7.98

1 x Kit Kat 0.88

Less RR (4.00)

Less Colgate DQ (2.00)

Less Colgate DQ (1.50)

Tax 0.26

OOP $1.62

Earned $4 WC (Colgate)


Trans 2 (DH)

3 x Oral B t/b 9.00

Less Oral B DQ (5.00)

Less WC (4.00)

Tax 0.54

OOP $0.54

Earned $5 RR  Mmm, it's supposed to have printed 2 RRs if you purchased 3 t/b too, but I only got one.  I wonder if it printed after I left the store, because I noticed a delay at 2nd store. Oh well, items were still free.


Trans 3 (DH)

4 x Oral b t/b $12.00

Less Oral b DQ (6.50)

Less WC (5.00)

Tax 0.72

OOP $1.22

Earned $10 RRs (Success!)


Trans 4 (Me)

2 x Colgate t/p $7.98

1 x Kit Kat 0.88

Less RR (4.00)

Tax 0.26

OOP $1.62

Earned $4 WC (Colgate)


Trans 5 (Me)

2 x Garnier shampoo $7.00

Less Garnier DS (3.00)

Less RR (4.00)

Tax 0.18

OOP $0.18


Trans 6 

2 x Garnier Whole Blends $7.00

Less Garnier DQ (3.00)

Less RR (4.00)

Tax 0.18

OOP $0.18


I couldn't find any Oral b sale items at the 3rd store, so I just bought the Garnier to spend those RRs. The Kit Kats were added as filler items, so that the RRs could attach to it. Your number of coupons cannot exceed your number of items purchased. 


Total OOP : $5.36

RRs used : $16

RRs earned $15

Wags Cash points (WC) used : $9.00

WC earned : $8.00

So I basically spent down $2 rewards (RRs & WC) and $5.36 OOP 

Submitted my receipts to PG & Fetch.



I had zero plans to shop this week, but then read about all the good online deals. I'm hesitant to do online (store pickup) deals, because they totally messed up my previous orders. When they substitute your items or don't add everything, you end up losing out on rewards and/or all your DQs don't deduct. Not to mention, it takes my store all day to process your order. So you're lucky to get it 5-8 hours later.  However, the deal was too good to pass up, so here's what I did. 


3 x 92 oz Tide $35.97 (only 2 pictured)

4 x Oral b t/b  12.00

2 x Colgate t/p 7.98

1 x Softsoap b/w 3.99

1 x Revlon eyeshadow 5.19

1 x Revlon eyeshadow B1G50% off 2nd 2.59

Less Tide DQ (5.00)

Less Tide DQ (3.00)

Less Oral b DQ (6.50)

Less Colgate DQ (4.00)

Less Softsoap DQ (3.50)

Less Revlon DQ (7.78)

Less 25% off promo code (9.48)

Less WC (5.00)

Tax 3.49

OOP $26.95


Earned $10 RR (Oral B), $17 WC ($10 Tide, $4 Colgate, $3 WYS $12 booster) + $1 Rakuten

Total earned $28

Who doesn't love free Tide?...lol


When you pick up your order in store, they scan the digital receipt and the RRs print. However, my Tide RR didn't print, so the manager added $10 to my account. I'm happy with that, because I don't have to worry about spending that $10 within the next 2 weeks. 

I have another $3 Tide pods DQ, but opted for the liquid instead. There are only 21 or 32 pods per container (depending on fragrance you choose), whereas I can get at least 70+ loads out of a bottle. Heck, I could probably squeeze 100 loads out of the bottle. I just dilute it with water and it still works great. Clothes still turn out clean. 

And darn if I didn't forget my receipt in store. I hate that you have to collect online orders at the photo counter. There were several other customers getting photos and I left the receipt on the counter for the manager, so he could add my $10 points. Then I picked up the 4 paper bags of goods (one bag broke as I got to my car, but thankfully the detergent didn't break). They also have a load of photo products on the counter, so it was easy to miss the receipt. I'm bummed because that's 250 PG points, but there's no way I'm gonna drive back to the store for just a receipt. Pity you can't submit online receipts, because I have that on my account. 

I also dropped one of the eyeshadows as I was getting it out to take pics, so I can't gift that one. I'll just use it myself. 

I'm seriously considering doing this deal on DH's account tomorrow too, but my store doesn't have enough Oral B inventory. He has a $5 booster on his account, so I could get Tide, Colgate & Softsoap and earn back $19. Decisions, decisions. 

I'm really happy that they fulfilled my entire order and in record time too. Less than half hour after placing my order, I received notification that it's ready for pickup. So $77.28 worth of Tide & other goodies for a $1.05 MM. I'll take it!


Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

  1. At every store I have asked, I have been given a duplicate receipt. Just give them the date, time, amount, and some of the things you bought.

    1. Thank you Linda. I do have a digital copy of the receipt. I just don't want to make a special trip to the store for a receipt, because it's a waste of time & gas for me.

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...
