**Beckee heads to Walgreens and Hy-Vee...

Just went to Walgreens and Hy-Vee and got some free stuff and great deals. Here is what I got:

The picture above is from my Walgreens reciept. I spent $12.35 out of pocket and saved a total of $18.94 between Walgreens store savings and Manufaturers coupons. Here is what I bought:
  • 4  12-packs of Diet Coke with Lime ($2.60 each)
  • 1  12-pack of Sprite zero ($2.60)
  • 1 12 pack of Cottonelle Toilet paper ($4)
  • I used a $5 RR

The picture above is from my first transaction at Hy-vee where I got 17 items for only $15.14 and I saved $23.70 in coupons. Many of the items were free because I had free coupons for them. Here is what I bought at Hy-Vee in that transaction:
  • 1 Campbell's Chunky Soup $.89-coupon peelie for $.75 = $.14
  • 1 6-pack Orville Reddenbacher popcorn (FREE with coupon from Vocalpoint)
  • 1 bag Sunchips (FREE with coupon from Sunchips Facebook fan page promotion)
  • 1 20 0z Vitamin Water (FREE with coupon from Vitamin Water Facebook fan page promotion)
  • 3 Keeblers UpBeat drinks 1 FREE with online coupon, Other 2 B1G1 coupon at store=$1.68 total
  • 1 Silk Almond Milk  $3.66-$1 coupon=$2.66
  • 2 Gallons Chocolate Milk (FREE with catalinas from cereal the other day)
  • 4 bags Kraft shredded sharp cheddar cheese on sale 2/$3, had coupons there for $1 off 2 bags, so ended up as 2/$2 or a total of $4 for the 4
  • 3 soda 12 packs on the 4/$8.88 sale. I have no clue how I forgot to grab a 4th one...oh well. they were $2.22 each anyway.
I did a second transaction at Hy-vee where I bought 7 more Frosted Flakes boxes for a total of $6.16 + I got back 3 coupons for free milk valued at up to $4.19 each(for a total of $12.57 in free milk). Best thing there is the cereal boxes also have codes to enter online to earn free Toy Story 3 prizes and with 6 codes I get a free movie pass to see the movie in the theatres. I have 7 codes in the 7 boxes!!

My favorite Register Reward deals at Walgreens this week

Well, since I started shopping at Walgreens and getting Register Rewards (RR), I seem to always have RRs that I need to use before they expire. So I try to "roll" the rewards by using them to pay for things that give me new RR, and it is a bonus when those things I can roll are things I really need, or can get free. So, this week I have $4 RR I need to use and as I read through the Walgreens ad for the week, I looked for items that will give me RR and are products I would buy or can use. Here are the items with RRs this week that I think are good:
  • Crest 3D White Dental Care, toothpaste, rinse or toothbrush (Oral B) is $3/9 and you get a $3 RR back.  I LOVE this stuff and am really excited about this RR deal.
  • DenTek Floss on sale for $2 and you get a $2 RR back (so like it's free)
  • Dove Shampoo, Conditioner, or Styling Products  on sale for $4 with a $4 RR back
  • Simply Saline Allergy and Sinus relief nasal mist on sale $7 with a $7 RR.
  • Cottonelle Toilet paper 12 rolls on sale for $5 and you get a $1 instant coupon so it ends up being $4 (This one is not a RR, but I think a good deal anyway.)
Please note, I am not typing out all the detalis of the products. Make sure to check your local ad for all the details of which items qualify, You can find the ads here.


**Soda deals in Omaha + Hyvee deals through 3/30

If you know my family personally, you probably know that we drink a lot of diet sodas here. So, I am always on the lookout for deals on sodas, and right now there are 2 really good ones here in Omaha! I usually jump at a deal when 12 packs are under $3, and I get REALLY excited when we get near $2.50. So I already told you that Walgreens has Coke (YEAH!) 12 packs this week at 5/$13 making them $2.60 each. That is a great deal for Coke products, and I am sure I will go buy some (BTW-you MUST buy 5 to get that price).

The other, even better deal is at Hyvee today and tomorrow only. 7Up, A&W, Sunkist, Dr Pepper (yeah), RC & Diet Rite 12 packs are (gasp) 4/$8.88! What?! Only $2.22 each?! I am there!!! Seriously, I will be leaving for Hy-vee shortly!

A few other great prices a HyVee through tomorrow (March 30th) are as follows:
  • Grimway baby carrots 1 lb $.88
  • Duncan Hines Cake Mixes $.88
  • Cook's Ham Portions $.98/lb
  • Van Camp's Pork & Beans 15 oz $.38
  • Nabisco Snack Crackers $2.28 (a great one if you happen to still have the $1/1 coupon from the Smart Source insert on 1/24/2010)

Coupon code for $10 off $10 purchase at New York & Co.

Right now you can get $10 off a $10 + purchase at New York & Co by using code 1068 at checkout.

I went over there and looked at their sale items and found some cute shirts for around $11-13, and there are some wallets for around $12. The above pictured shirt was $13.18, minus the $10 plus $4.95 shipping brought the total to $8.13.

Thanks Couponing to Disney.
