Walgreens. Free Stuff. I like! I must say, it was a total MESS though! Sigh!
But, lest I complain about my great deal and wonderful savings, I must praise the wonderful employees at the Walgreens I went to! Miss Liz was AMAZINGLY patient and nice (my cashier) and Mr. Edward was exceedingly pleasant to deal with and helped me by solving my problems quickly and with a smile. How REFRESHING! How nice! Plus, it was not their fault I had issues! It was partially mine, partially the ads posted on the shelves, but here it is:
I bought several things. The REACH toothbrush must be the new one, it was not, but there were coupons taped over the price/description and over the two rows of toothbrushes, so I ASSUMED they were the right one. This was Problem #1. Hair color for the Loreal Match, shows a coupon underneath the boxes for $2/1 using the ES coupon. I could NOT find an easy saver coupon for this product. I looked, the cashier looked, mr. manager looked. NOPE. Finally, he just told her to adjust the price to reflect a $2 savings. Problem #2. BLINK eye drops/tears had the same sale stickers over the tags for 2 rows of products, so I just looked at pics in ad. Mistake. I picked up the bonus box, as it was marked on sale and with RR. I was NOT. NO RR PRINTED. Problem #3. Of course, 2 problems not discovered until I was checking out, RR one once I was done and had to go back in!
Look at the pics! I got all that you see pictured for $22.58. Which seemed high. I saw that I was charged $14.99 for the BLINK, because it was the wrong product! I took it back inside and Mr. Edward found that they had NO product that matched. SO, he said, I'll fix it and exchange it and give you a coupon anyway. OK>>>> Not sure what he was gonna do, but he exchanged the big for the small (not the right one) and I was refunded $7.50 CASH. So $22.58-$7.50 = $15.08 OOP for this shop.

Ok, so let's discover what the unknown $3 RR was for. Perhaps the Mylanta? It says, thanks from McNeil-PPC, Inc. Let me go look. Ok, I was wrong, this was from the REACH toothbrushes! I got the wrong ones for the ad price (they were priced/tagged wrong), they price adjusted, and I got them free, I didn't realize there was a deal, but in the ad it says buy 3, get $3 RR. Solved!
$724.76-$15.08 OOP= $709.68 left in budget!
