Best Walmart Trip EVER!


All I have to say is - I LOVE PRICE MATCHING AT WALMART! 


Of course, that is not all I am going to say. :D Before Hailey's music class today, we headed to Walmart to get toothpaste, floss, sandwich bags and baby wipes. I was very excited about the toothpaste because it was a moneymaker for me! Here is a breakdown: 


First Transaction:


- 1 loaf french bread 1.04
- 1 loaf italian bread 1.04
- 2 garlic breads .97 each
- 4 cascade trial size .97 each
- 8 crest complete toothpastes 1.00 each (PM Walgreens Ad - 2/2 after RR)
- 4 oral b glide dental floss 1.00 each (PM Walgreens Ad - 2/2 after RR)
- 3 oral b complete toothbrushes 1.00 each (PM Walgreens Ad - 2/2 after RR)


coupons used: 


- (4) $1 off any cascade (free plus .12 overage!)
- (4) $2 off crest complete toothpaste ($4 moneymaker!!)
- (4) $1 off crest toothpaste (free - coupon came from inside a toothpaste box)
- (4) $1 off oral b glide floss (free - coupon came from inside a toothpaste box) {wrong pile}
- (2) .75 off oral b toothbrush (.25 each)
- (1) $1 off oral b toothbrush (free - coupon came from inside a toothpaste box)


Total BEFORE coupons: $24.97
Total AFTER coupons: $6.47


Transaction #2: 


- 2 gv sandwich bags (100 ct.) 1.00 each
- 2 baby wipes (80 ct.) .98 each (hypoallergenic - no scent)
- 4 oral b glide dental floss 1.00 each (PM Walgreens Ad - 2/2 after RR)
- 4 crest complete toothpaste 1.00 each (PM Walgreens Ad - 2/2 after RR)


coupons used: 


- (4) $2 off crest complete toothpaste ($4 moneymaker)
- (4) $1 off oral b floss (free)


As I am typing this up, I realized that I accidentally gave my cashier my four extra $1 off oral b glide dental floss coupons! OH NO! It never beeped so I didn't even think about it. 


Total BEFORE Coupons: $13.07
Total AFTER Coupons: -$2.93 (They handed me cash back)


If I would have realized what I had done, I would have paid $1.07. Instead they get $4 plus .08 s/h per coupon. I thought it was weird getting money back but I was just too excited that I got paid.


{Just figured out what happened - I forgot to give him 4 of my $1 off coupons in the first transaction - these were in the wrong pile!) So I was correct in what I did - just a little backwards!}

Lesson Learned: Mistakes can happen to anyone...especially when it comes to couponing!




Total OOP: $3.54  or 91% savings


Also, there were $14 in coupons inside 4 of the toothpaste boxes! I can use these to score some .25 toothpaste, floss and toothbrushes for other friends and family! This $42 in free money! love it!

  3. I found them in the dish soap isle and also in the under $1 stand - there was candy, drinks - a bunch of stuff. HTH

  4. How do you match ads AFTER RR? Do they actually give you the price it would come to if you'd gotten a RR? I've never seen anyone do this before. I'm think I'm too scared to try this. =(

  5. I show them the ad price after RR. I never knew they did this until I had a little problem with one of the CSM one night. The store manager called me to apologize but he also told me that they took the price after RR. I was totally amazed. I have never had a problem with this yet.

    You could call your local store manager and ask if they price match after rewards. Hopefully they do.

    HTH
