What $6.00 can buy

So I don't usually buy Pop-tarts and Nutri-grain bars, but I couldn't pass up this deal at Walgreens.

Buy 4 cereals for $10, get a $5 coupon good off next Walgreen's purchase. Plus $1 off coupon in Sunday paper.

Buy 4 Nutri-grains for $10 get $5 coupon good off next purchase. Plus $1 off coupon in Sunday paper.

Buy 5 Pop-tarts, Cheez-its or Rice Krispies Treats for $10 get $5 back. Plus 2 $1 coupons in Sunday paper.

In the ad it looks like you can use both combinations of 4 Nutri-grains or 5 Pop-tarts to get 2 coupons for $5 each back, though only one spit out for me. The cashier gave me a mail-in form to get the other $5.00 so I'm not sure if it will work.

Also in the paper next to the coupons is a $10 mail-in rebate form if you buy 10 of these Kellogg's products. Keep in mind you also need to send in UPCs. I realize much of this discount is in the form of in-store credit, but they also have great deals on school supplies and 75% off summer stuff (goggles, diving rings, lawn chairs), so I will have no trouble buying things I would be shopping for anyway.

So best case scenario if I also get the Walgreen's mail-in rebate, I got all this "junk" for one dollar!!!

Oh, and I also made $2 by picking up their Pert shampoo free after rebate AND using a $2 coupon from the Sunday paper.

As if these deals aren't fabulous enough to make you pee in your pants a little, Walgreen's now does rebates online. No stamp necessary!!

Ooh! Don't even make me go into how much money I could make if i had my irresistible darlings selling these Rice Krispie treats and breakfast bars along with ice cold lemonade at our garage sale coming soon to a neighborhood not near you. Cha-Ching!

Oooh you are good! I love the Walgreens... BOGOs on makeup are the best!
If i lived closer i would bring some of my shabby chic stuff over to sell at your garage sale. My guess is that I would want to buy your stuff and you might snag some of my stuff! When is the actual garage sale?

As always, I am impressed. I should pay more attention to these things.

Sabrina, the sale is this weekend. Wanna come up? I'd love to turn it into a swap meet. I have some simply shabby duvets.......:)

so, where exactly are the extra $1 off coupons? I am just starting to get interested in occasionally using a coupon, so I want to do this right! I need information!

I'm pretty sure the coupons were from Sunday's Star Trib., though there is a small chance they were from our local paper. I subscribe to both because I want local news, but the coupons are usually way better in the big city paper. There is a whole flyer full of Kellogg's coupons AND the rebate form. Or you could always check ebay;)

You're like the money-saving-coupon-clipping-go-to-guru of bloggyland.
I just gave you a title.
I wish I could go to your garage sale...
