Almost Free Gillette, Glade, Advil, Covergirl & Free Tylenol

This is a couple days worth of trips combined into one post. Really excited for finding the Gillette Body wash for $2.50! I have been watching for a sale and almost missed the one at Save on Foods, thankfully I caught it last night on the last day of the sale. I just happened to be walking down the isle and the sign caught my eye – phew! Men’s body wash is one of the things I haven’t really bought much of yet and we go through a fair bit in my house. With my $2.00 off from Brandsaver they were only 50 cents each before tax! SCORE! Wish I had more of these coupons…

The other day when I was in Shoppers Drug Mart there was some on a clearance table with a $2.29 sticker, I was so excited but when I got up to the till they were $4.99 – was a bit disappointed but this made up for it.

London Drugs currently has some of the Covergirl products on sale for $5.99 – perfect time to use my $4.00 that just came in the mail this week!

Free L’Oreal Man Expert – Free Tyenol Muscle Aches & Body Pain

Found 6 more L’Oreal Man Expert coupons laying around since they expire on Wednesday thought I would try and use them since they were already printed. Wal-Mart happened to have 5 trial sizes left, so I picked them up, a full size one (to use my coupon and overage) and a Betty Crocker snack size cookie mix. What a GENIUS idea, snack size cookie mix! Was thrilled to find this so thought I would try it out with some of overage. I have linked the L’Oreal Man Expert printable coupon below but it does expire on Wednesday, November 30, 2011 so you need to use it fast.

Well going through some coupons I also found some Tyenol Muscle Aches & Body Pain coupons that I had printed a while ago from Living Well – these coupons were $4 off but had no size restrictions on them! I didn’t even notice because the ones I printed after have a size restriction so I assumed they all did. While in Wal-Mart I saw the 16 counts sell for $3.28 there but of course they were sold out, like they usually are for anything that involves a coupon. But I did find some in Zellers and London Drugs for more – no overage, but at least I got some and they were still free (had to pay tax). Looking forward to trying these tonight for my sore shoulder. I had to go into both stores because you are only allowed one coupon per person – it was fine though because Zellers and London Drugs are right next door to each other.

On to a bit of a different topic that I haven’t talked much about – and that is cashiers entering in your coupons correct. 4 times in the past week alone I have had the cashiers mix up or miss a coupon. I don’t always say something – once it was for 50 cents and another time $1.00 so I didn’t bother. But on one of my recent shopping trips a $5 coupon was missed, I even asked her three times telling her I am pretty sure she missed a coupon. She said she didn’t so I paid, got my receipt and saw she missed one. I feel really bad and don’t want to argue with them, in this case they corrected it for me. The glare at you for asking them if they are doing their job right… the thing is, I usually know what my order total should be within a dollar, if it’s higher I am going to notice. Don’t they realize that most people using coupons probably know their totals. I guess not everyone thinks like a couponer. Anyway, something similar happened in Wal-Mart today at least this time I was able to show her the error before I paid. I just feel so bad when I have to ask them more then once, “are you sure you got all the coupons, the total should be lower than that.” I feel like such a cheap ass. Missing $1.00 isn’t the end of the world for me but when its $3.00 like today or $5.00 like last week it makes a big difference. Anyway, moral of this story is always double check your totals and coupons and try and have an idea of what your total should be (if you can).

Deodorant, Soap and Free Samples

A catch up from the weekend.

On Friday I got my brandSAMPLER (none available right now) package in the mail. I love free samples! It had a free razor so I consider it pretty awesome but it wasn’t the best one I have ever received.

On Saturday I happened to be in Zellers and noticed the Degree Deodorant was on for $1.49 and I had a coupon for 50 cents off so I picked up two. I probably would of known this in advance if I had of been paying closer attention to the other websites coupon match ups (like here and here) but I never shop at Zellers so I don’t take much notice to what they have on sale. I probably should pay more attention. I picked out my Degree Deodorant in two fancy scents, Orange Flower Cranberry and Honeysuckle – they both smell really good.

On Sunday I was in Shoppers and picked up some Lever 2000 bar soap – pack of 4. It smells pretty good – I got the Citrus Fresh Scent. Hope it isn’t too drying. Guess I will find out.

All in all I didn’t spend much this weekend – so that is a good thing!
