Both Wags and Rite Aid are having four-day sales starting tomorrow. I highlighted the best deals earlier in the week, but here are a couple of scenarios you could work around.

$31.89 oop

And get back:
6x $2 UPR for Disney toys

1x $5 UPR for Ecotools
2x $3.50 UPR for Colgate
2x $1 UPR for tape
1x $3 UPR for Advil
1x $5 UPR for Gillette

Total profit $4.11

Of course, this is just the deal that I’m doing tomorrow based on my coupons. If you don’t have the MiniWheats coupon or still have the $0.75/1 Colgate coupon or have the Air Wick candle coupons, there are many different deals to be had.


Now, for Walgreens I have 3 of the $5 Super Jingle Cash from last week. I normally don’t mind having extra RR because I can just use them at Safeway as MQs, but the Super Jingle Cash are actually store coupons. They also state only one can be redeemed per transaction, so I need to have three separate transactions to burn through these before Sunday.
