The Robitussin/Dimetapp is on sale for $4/each this week (I believe the regular price is $6.49-$6.99)

1. Print five of the $2 off coupons (the links are posted here).

2. Visit your local Walgreens. If you can get your hands on five bottles, you will spend $10 out of pocket after coupons, but you will get $20 in RR (if you buy them before 12/31). After 12/31, you will get $15 in RR.

Based on posts on HCW, the following UPCs are confirmed to be working for this deal: (these are for 4 oz bottles)

Children's Dimetapp Cold & Cough (3-0031-2234-13-2 = UPC)
Dimetapp Cold and Allergy Elixir (UPC=0031 2235 12)
Children's Dimetapp Cold and Allergy (UPC=300312235-139)

Adult Robitussin Cough & Chest Congestion, Sugar-Free DM3-0031-8686-13-3 = UPC
Adult Robitussin Cough, Sugar Free DM (UPC =3 0031 8686 12 6)
Adult Robitussin Cough & Cold CF (UPC = 3-0031-8616-14-7)
Adult Robitussin Cough & Chest Congestion DM (UPC = 3-0031-8685-15-0)
Adult Robitussin Cough & Chest Congestion DM Max
Adult Robitussin Cough Syrup CF (UPC=3-0031 8616 14)
Adult Robitussin Night time Cough Cold and Flu (UPC = 0031 8642)

Does not appear to be working:
Adult Robitussin Night Time Cold and Cough 4 oz

3. This week, there is a deal where you earn $10 in RR when you spend $20 on Robitussin/Dimetapp. This deal overlaps with two other catalina deals: (This information came from Common Sense with Money)

*Get $5 RR when you buy three Wyeth products (ends 12/31)
*Get $5 RR when you buy $10 in Wyeth products (ends 1/31)
*Get $10 RR when you spend $20 (ends 1/31)

If you buy the Robitussin/Dimetapp before 12/31, you will get $20 in RR. If you buy them after 12/31, you will get $15 in RR.

A few additional notes:
**If you try to use RR from a previous Dimetapp/Robitussin deal to pay for your out of pocket on the next round, your RR will not print.

**RR are treated as manufacturer's coupons and you can only use one manufacturer's coupon per item. If you are using a Wyeth coupon for each cough syrup and additional RR (from deals other than the Dimetapp/Robitussin deal), you will need to add "filler" items so that you can use your RR.

**The Wyeth coupons state "one per purchase" not "one per transaction" which means that you should be able to use one coupon for each item you are buying.

**Using coupons should not prevent your RR from printing although plenty of store managers and cashiers will try to tell you this. Before making your purchase, it helps to make sure that the green light on the catalina machine is on. If there is a red light or a flashing light, there may be a problem with the catalina machine.

**If your RR does not print, here's what you need to do:
A1: The store will give you a form to fill out and mail in to catalina
A2: 1-888-8coupon, option 3
A3: use the online form: Contact Catalina Marketing
(I haven't had much luck using the online form and have had the best luck just calling them)

**If your store is out of the Dimetapp/Robitussin, get a rain check for the $4 price. You can buy them when they are back in stock and you should still be able to get the $15 in RR.

So it's been awhile since I updated! Woo, it's been a stressful last few weeks! Just wanted to point out a few good deals right now!

1. In last Sunday's paper, there was a $.50 off ANY Cottonelle 4 pack toilet paper. Well, Kroger has a 4 pack of Cottonelle everyday low price of $.99. Most Kroger stores double coupons up to $.50, so doubled, that makes for free TP! Great deal, stock up now. If you need more of the coupons, look on,, or Coupons can usually be found fairly cheap!

2. Walgreens is having a 2 day sale!! Today and tomorrow only! They have this 7 inch digital photo frame for $39.99, which is a good deal in and of itself! But it gets better! They also have a $20 Easy Saver Rebate on this frame making it only $19.99!

They also have a 3.5 inch frame, on sale for $29.99, again with a seperate $20 Easy Saver Rebate, making it only $9.99! In case your not familiar, Walgreens Easy Saver Rebates are really simple. You sign up online, enter your receipt number, check off which rebate you are turning in, and then claim your rebate! A little tip: If you choose to have the rebate loaded onto a Walgreens gift card, you get an extra 10%!!

3. Walgreens has a sale starting Sunday with a hair dryer (Conair gel grips) for $10, you get a $10 Register Reward with purchase, making the hair dryer FREE!! A register reward is used like cash and can be used only at Walgreens. There are a few exceptions and limitations, including no purchase of alcohol or tobacco while using a register reward.

4. Starting Sunday, CVS is having a 2 day sale with many items FREE after Extra Care Bucks!! And what makes it even better, you can use manufacturer's coupons to make each item a MONEY MAKER!! For instance, they have Arm and Hammer Essentials starter kits for $2.99, and you earn $2.99 Extra Care Bucks! In this past Sunday's paper, there was a $1.00 coupon so it's a $1.00 money maker! There is a limit of 5 on that deal, so you can do it 5 times. All at once or split them up into seperate transactions. You can also print the $1.00 Arm and Hammer coupon here

My New Fav. Product

YOPLAIT® LIGHT LETS YOU HAVE YOUR CAKE … AND EAT IT, TOOIndulgent, Cake-Inspired Flavors – Strawberry Shortcake, Raspberry Cheesecake and Pineapple Upside-Down Cake – Debut to Tame That Sweet Tooth with Guilt-Free Yogurt Options
Yoplait® Light granted three wishes to dessert lovers this summer by introducing new great tasting yogurts that deliver sweet cake flavors with a better-for-you, fat-free bonus. Classic confections now available in the yogurt aisle include Strawberry Shortcake, Raspberry Cheesecake and Pineapple Upside-Down Cake.
Yoplait is expanding its Yoplait Light offering to feature even more delectable options Americans enjoy – and each new flavor is a healthful alternative to higher-calorie choices. For example, one 6 oz. cup of Yoplait Light Pineapple Upside-Down Cake yogurt contains 110 calories and 0 grams of fat. Compare that to a slice of traditional Pineapple Upside-Down Cake from the bakery or dessert menu, which delivers on average 367 calories and 14 grams of fat*. In addition, each serving of the new Yoplait Light cups contains 20 percent of the recommended daily value of calcium and vitamin D and 110 fat-free calories – the only leading yogurt with calcium and vitamin D in every cup.
The new flavors from Yoplait Light are the perfect, guilt-free solution to the mid-day munchies, says the author of Hungry Girl: Recipes and Survival Strategies for Guilt-Free Eating in the Real World and the Hungry Girl daily newsletter.
National research reveals need for “smart snacking” options
National dietary research from NHANES (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey)** revealed that traditional meal patterns are rapidly changing. On average, Americans are snacking more than twice a day and are consuming more than 240 calories per snack. Given this fact, consumers would benefit from snacks that can satisfy a craving and provide important nutrients without a lot of calories.
No matter how you slice it, the rich and creamy flavors of Yoplait Light will help health-conscious consumers enjoy everyday indulgences without the guilt, says a Yoplait marketing manager. Here’s proof that it is possible to have your cake and eat it, too!
The new Yoplait Light cake-inspired flavors is available nationwide at a suggested retail price of 72¢ per 6 oz cup.

Welcome to All!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Your probably wondering why I started this blog, huh? Guess I decided to jump on the bandwagon, considering that all my friends have a nifty thrifty blog that I love reading, so I thought, hey, why not me? I tossed the idea back and forth considering I'm already over my head and out of time most days, but... You know! So don't jump me if I don't post EVERYDAY, I'll post when I can and update everyone.
So, I'm new to all of this and just getting the hang of it, don't tighten the noose too tight!

First bargain related post: Kroger has Cottonelle toilet paper 4 packs, everyday low price of $.99. In this past Sunday's paper, there were coupons for $.50 off ANY one Cottonelle 4 pack or larger. Most Kroger's double up to $.50 (I'm lucky, mine doubles up to $.99 everyday!) but with the coupon doubled, that means free TP!! Woohoo! I love a good bargain!
