A lesson on Rainchecks

I used my first raincheck tonight..It felt great!! Ahhh Haaahaaaaa! :)  Okay seriously, it was really
cool to get a sale that the store had over two weeks ago!!
So, I had an awesome coupon for RightGuard Body Wash B1G1 (actually several coupons) and Walgreens had a deal a couple weeks ago for RightGuard Body Wash B1G1...and we know what happens when you match a Buy one get one Free coupon with a B1G1 sale...It it FREE!!
Well, walgreens ran out of the bodywash early in the sale week...all you have to do it is ask for a
raincheck and the sale is good for a year!
Tonight, I finally found the bodywash at walgreens and I was able to use my raincheck and coupons to get the B1G1 sale!!
I was really excited...Each body wash was $4.99 a piece and I bought four...I only paid tax!!
I should have paid $21.61 and I paid only .77 cents!!

When I got back into the car even our oldest Shane was impressed :)
 In the beginning of this coupon mania, I was feeling bad like I was ripping off the stores but in reality they are making more money when I use coupons!! The stores get reimbursed for the face value of the coupon plus 8 cents for every coupon I use so, we all win!!

  1. I've had the same feelings about "ripping off the store" and feeling guilty about it..didn't know that they were making a little extra! Thanks for sharing! :) Chrissy
