Free Carmex Lip Balm (Lime Twist or Vanilla) at Walgreens

Guess what my new obsession is? Coupons! Ever since I saw an episode of Extreme Couponing on TLC, I've been wanting to be a couponer too. These "Extreme Couponers" have learned the simple basics of the coupon system and used that to save them a whole lot of money on grocery and drugstore products. It's amazing! They have a lot of short clips on youtube, so I suggest you check them out if you haven't seen it.

So I've been collecting coupons for almost a month now and I went to Walgreens today and matched some of the coupons I have with their sales.

Here's what I got...

I got this Carmex Lime Twist lip balm for FREE
Here's how:
Buy it for the retail price of $1.50 and you get $1.50 Register Rewards that prints out right after you pay. It's like I just got my money back and it's like paying $0. You can get back in line and pick up the same product and use your register reward right away or you can wait for another day. They have short expiration date so prefer using on the same day so I won't forget. 



I also got these 2 Crest Complete Multi-Benefit Whitening toothpaste for FREE!
Here's how:
They are currently on sale for 2/$5. I used a $1 off Crest coupons that I got on the Sunday paper for each toot paste which brings the total to $3. Then I got $3 Register Reawards back, which pretty much makes the total $0. It's like paying nothing. Again, I can use that Register Rewards on another transaction.


I used my $3 Register Rewards from purchasing Crest Toothpaste towards these Vanity Fair Dinner paper plates. They retail $4.99 and are currently on sale for BuyOneGetOne Free. I also used a 55cents off Vanity Fair Coupon that I got in the Sunday newspaper.
So $4.99- $3= $1.99- 55cents is $1.44
I could have used my $1.50 Register Rewards from my Carmex purchase, but I plan on going back to Walgreens and use it towards another Carmex lip balm.




I hope I didn't confuse you guys lol.

  3. I absolutely love the Carmex click-sticks. They are so flavorful and don't taste disgusting like the original Carmex pot does!
    I'm going to have to try this lime one, though. I have the cherry and its delectable!
