    • tonya

      i am new to all this couponing. does anyone know if i can print coupons from previous months inserts?

      thanks for your time,

      • Jenny

        You actually can’t print insert coupons online. If you are wanting some coupons from old inserts look on ebay or http://www.thecouponclippers.com and try ordering the ones you want.

    • Becky

      Softsoap rolling stopped yesterday afternoon in our area. :(

    • tonya

      so, do i just keep a file of coupons that i clip out of the sunday paper each week and go through them to see which ones i need before shopping. sorry to seem so behind. everyone else on this website seems to have this all down to a science. i only last night discovered what ss and rp meant (read the coupon lingo box). it makes me so mad to think of all the money i could have been saving over the years.

    • Fern

      Another deal this week is on Menthos gum. They were marked 2 for $2 and there were 2 coupons for $1 off any Menthos in the Sunday insert sometime this month or last. So get two for free!! Can’t beat that.

    • mandy

      softsoap deal not rolling anymore in hattiesburg, ms

    • The Soft Soap deal in GA stopped rolling Monday afternoon.

    • Shannon N.

      The softsoap stopped rolling everywhere around 2pm yesterday (Monday, 3/30)

    • Where can you find the welchs aqua juice??

      • Jenny

        If you mean in what stores i know our Kroger sells it, it is in the juice aisle with regular Welchs

    • Alicia W.

      Also, Target has Leapster games on sale this week and coupons.com has a $5 off Leapster Games coupon (makes them $13.99).

    • Kati

      Last night I needed some Benadryl. I was on my way to go CVSing but needed to stop sneezing before I got there! The Wal-dryl was on sale but when they rang it up… WOW… was it ever on sale. It rang up 99 cents! In case you need some antihistamine… go stock up at Walgreens!

    • Shana

      Check for clearance Edge and Skintimate too! As long as they’re regular sized, not trial, they seem to still give the RR. I found a can of Edge clearanced to $1.79 on Sunday and it gave me the $3RR, so it was a $1.21 money maker for me! :)

    • Mommyishome

      Can you tell me about using a $30 coupon at Walgreens for a $15 product? I haven’t tried this yet, but I already know they are going to tell me I can’t use it because the coupon is more than the cost of the product. Do they have a policy about this, is it cashier specific, what do I tell them (adjust down the coupon? – can they do that?) Thanks!

    • Tonya in jax

      Just found out today that the Walgreens around here offer 15% military discount. Would have been nice to know 2 weeks ago, but I’ll take it! It’s only on Tuesdays and a manager has to ring you up in photo or cosmetics. It made my 2/$5 Cottonelle deal $3.74 after using $1 in coupons.

    • Lynn

      Mommyishome, the coupon I’m reading says (in the medium-sized print) “up to $30.00 off,” which suggests it should be adjusted down if the cost of the item is less.

    • Mina

      MommyIsHome and anyone else who uses the Up to $30 glucose meter coupon – it’s one of those coupons that require the cashier to fill in the amount of the item. I give it to the cashier immediately after she rings up the meter because that’s when the information they need is most easily available. Giving it to them then helps speed the checkout process. Also, please prompt the cashier to fill in the serial # of that particular meter as well as the amount. (The serial # is located on the bottom of the box.) If that info is not entered on the form, the store will not be reimbursed by the manufacturer. The cashiers don’t see this coupon often enough to automatically know just what needs to be filled in. You can help them to help you by explaining as you go. HTH

    • Wendy

      I found a Softsoap Body Wash coupon in SS 3/29 for $.75 which you can put with the $3.00 RR from Edge Shaving Cream and get the softsoaps for $.25, then get your Softsoap coupon for a free one on next purchase.

      Also the $1.99 RR from Chapstick would cover the Egde Shaving cream cost for the ones on clearance at $1.79. You could alternate these deals like crazy!

    • Just remember that you have to pay tax on the item even if it is free (at least you do here in Kansas and Missouri). So, for me, the meter\Crest deal wouldn’t be a moneymaker after tax but I would get the meters and Crest for something like $.40! A good deal if you need Crest and you can always donate the meters.

    • Is it all the Edge Shaving cream or only the Edge Energy that is pringing the $3 RR?

      • Jenny

        It is all of the Edge creams, even $1.49 sizes!

    • YIPPEE!!! Thanks!

    • Kristie

      I found Dry Idea roll on deodorant on clearance for $2.29. It’s a sweet deal when paired with the $2 coupon for Dry Idea from coupons.com.

    • Jen

      Where do you get all these coupons and RebateRewards? I know the Walgreens ad has a lot of them but I don’t really understand how RR works…can anyone help me?? I’m getting married soon and I want to save as much money as we can!

    • Robert

      Edge/Skintimate deal does not work in Marietta.

    • Mina

      Heather and Jenny, it is now only the new style Edge (green can, either Comfort or Hydrating), and the new Skintastic with a curvy can that qualify for the $3RR. RR’s spit out for all of them on Sunday and Monday, but the Catalinas were adjusted Monday night to only recognize the new style. Interesting note – the new Skintastics are 20 cents more than the previous cans, and they contain 1 oz. less product.

    • Farrah

      Is it better to wait and use the coupon for the Bayer Glucose meters when there is a RR or ECB? Or is that unlikely to happen b/c the coupon makes it free in most cases? I know my coupon is good until September.

      • Jenny

        I always hold my coupons for ECB deals. They have them every few months but it for $14.99 get $5 ECB, so it is just free ECB for you with the coupon!!

    • Shon

      I thought the $14.99 for the Glucose meter ended on Sunday? Also is the Shaving Cream RR deal listed in the ads regionally bc I don’t remember seeing in my store for this week?
