Walgreens Scenarios - week of 11/28

I know for a fact that I will be near a Walgreens today, so I took a look to see what deals would be worth stopping in for. My list started with a lot of candy, not a good thing, seeing as how I am trying to monitor what I eat and I have a large chocolate tooth, but I figure that if I need the candy for the holidays, it is at least better to get a good deal on it.

Transaction #1
2 - Nyquil/Dayquil Sinex

-$4 any Sinex product
-$4 any Sinex product

Total $2 OOP, earn $5 Jingle Cash.

Transaction #2
2 - Cap'n Crunch Cereal
3 - Eclipse Gum

-$1 $1/2 Cap'n Crunch mfg coupon

Total $6, pay with $5 Jingle Cash and $1 OOP. Earn $2 and $1 Jingle Cash.

Transaction #3
4 - M&M Holiday

-$1 $1/2 M&M mfg coupon
-$1 $1/2 M&M mfg coupon

Total $8, pay with $2 and $1 Jingle Cash and $5 OOP. Earn $5 Jingle Cash.

Transaction #4
1 - Gillette ProFusion Razor

-$4 Gillette ProFusion mfg coupon

Total $5.99, pay with $5 Jingle Cash and $.99 OOP. Earn $4 Jingle Cash.

Transaction #5

Total $4, pay with $4 Jingle Cash. Earn $2 Jingle Cash.

Transaction #6

For my trip, I will have spent $8.99, for $43.99 in product at sale prices. A savings of about 80%.

for #4, you wouldn't be able to use both the maufacturer's coupon and the JC.....you would have to have a filler.
I see in the other section that the Disney Puzzle is put in...
I have $41.23 in JC to mess with so I'm rolling ideas around in my head to get them used before they expire....and having to be careful too that the ones from P&G state they can't be used on other P&G products. I think I will be ok as they will count off on the fillers right?

I've used P&G JC on other P&G items, and it worked as long as it's not for the same value. Ex: I couldn't use a $3 P&G JC for an item that will produce another $3 P&G JC. However, I could use the $3 JC on an item that will produce a $2.50 JC. I did 19 transactions very early Thursday morning to get all the good weekend deals, and this worked just fine for me, and I picked up probably 30-40 P&G items, all that produced JC.

Marsha S - yes, I realized that when I got to the store today. Thank you. also, learned that for my Quaker transaction I also needed one, because a $1/2 coupon counts as a coupon for each of those two items.
