    Hi newatthis - you will want to read the list of couponing abbreviations I have here on the blog:
    http://www.wral.com/news/local/story/6517799/. Speakign couponing is like another language sometimes!

    MQ = Manufacturer's Coupon

    WYB 2 = when you buy 2 of an item

    RR = Register Rewards (rebate program through Walgreens - read the drug store program details on the home page of the blog as well)

    RR WYB = earn Walgreens's Register Rewards when you buy qualifying products

    Hope that helps! It may also help you to read the articles I will be posting on the next 4 Thursday's about cutting grocery bills in half. We are on week 4 of a 12 week series on getting back to basics with a new article posted every Thursday. This Thursday we begin the section on cutting grocery bills.

  • newatthis Jan 26, 2010

    What is MQ, wyb2 & RR WYB?

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Jan 26, 2010

    You are welcome, nckirks!

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Jan 26, 2010

    Hi minthi - Thanks for your comment! I do love to support our local retailers, especially farmer's markets. But, the purpose of this blog is to highlight the best deals and Kerr Drug doesn't offer the competitive sales, freebies and rebate deals that the big 3 bring to the table.

    They do offer one great benefit, though - prescription transfer gift cards! I transferred a prescription to them last week, used a $25 gift card coupon (from the sales ad a couple weeks ago) and got a $25 gift card. I then used it to get a bunch of tp, paper towels, tin foil and plastic wrap for free.

    In the ad this week, I saw one good deal - the Trident Layers Gum on sale for .88. Use the .75 coupon found on displays & it = .13. BUT - it is free everyday at Lowe's and HT because the coupon doubles there. If you see some good buys at Kerr, please share them here!

    They are a good neighborhood store, but for couponers, they just don't always offer the best buys.

  • nckirks Jan 25, 2010

    Thanks for posting the site for the Dove coupon! I will be heading to CVS!

  • minthiesnipes Jan 25, 2010

    Hey, where's Kerr Drug? Let's support our local chain.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Jan 25, 2010

    Thanks for the heads up Nancy! Be sure to get a raincheck (if they will offer them considering the strange circumstances).

    I stopped by CVS today and found some good items on clearance! Today I bought 2 Dove Ultimate Deodorants - $2 coupons (earn $2 ECB's wyb 2), 1 Kids Crest - .75 coupon (earn $1 ECB wyb 1), 1 Gillette Shampoo (clearanced to $1.07 - $1 coupon), 1 Aussie Shampoo (clearanced to $1.17 - $1 coupon), 1 Pantene Hairspray (clearanced to $1.25 - $1 coupon) and 2 chocolate hearts for girls valentines gift.

    Total before sales and coupons: $18.02.
    Amount Paid: $1.39 (.66 was tax)
    Total Saved: $16.63
    AND I earned $3 in ECB's to use on next week's sales!

    FYI - In addition to the coupons I used on this transaction, I also used a $5 ECB I earned from the deals I bought last week.

    Any totals you want to share this week? (remember, you can only post comments M-F during business hours)

  • Nancy Jan 25, 2010

    CVS: The Motrin deal ($5 ECB) is off this week, no Motrin on the shelves due to recall of product. Hope they run it again when they get new product in!
