    Alright, seriously, the Similac deal that ends at Rite Aid today is a money maker for any of you fine Mommy's lucky enough to have Similac checks you won't use lying about.

    The SCR is for Similac CONCENTRATE, but the store signage shows the rebate is good for ALL 32 oz, not just concentrate. The 32 oz Ready To Feed is free after in ad coupon if you pay with a $5 Similac check.

    I submitted receipts last night for 3/10 and 3/11. The 3/10 receipt updated and I've been credited $2 for each of that transaction's 32 oz Similac.

    I got formula ABSOLUTELY FREE to donate to the shelter, AND now they're rewarding my thoughfulness by giving me back $2 each for the first 4.

    OK, a deal.

    I know some of you ladies have babies. You've probably been getting formula checks. If you don't use Similac, you can pick it up this week at Rite Aid for FREE and donate it.

    There's an in ad coupon for $2 off any Similac. 32 oz ready to feed is under $7 (I've seen it $6.49-6.79). If you have $5 Similac checks, even after tax and without a Rite Aid discount (since they're regular price your discount WOULD apply) the coupon and check will cover the formula and tax, and even leave you a few pennies overage.

    Now, there's a $2 SCR on 32 oz Similac concentrate (limit 4), not the ready to feed. The concentrate is $10-11.

    BUT, the shelf signage in the store is showing the $2 rebate on ALL 32 oz. This may or may not actually work out, but since the formula can be freely bought it's not a big deal if it doesn't work out. I submitted my receipt because it has the Keri on it, but if I get $2 for the Similac too I'll be OK with that.

    Still waiting on RA. Dunno yet.

    Nancy, your daughter sounds like my kinda gal. :-)

    kpeele, my husband isn't allowed near tools. Bad things happen. I made the mistake of telling him "anyone can change their own transmission filter" and when I tried to walk him through it he pulled out several "extra" bolts that were "in his way" trying to get a good grip on the filter, but didn't keep track of which went where, and put them back in wrong.

    I really wish I was kidding.

    I too am impressed with you ladies doing your own work on your cars!

    My husband is very handy and works on our cars when he can. I'm pretty sure that once we started dating and my dad realized the wide variety of my sweetie's skills, my dad was trying to figure out what it would take to get me to marry him ASAP!

    "asked her Dad to hold her legs so she wouldn't spin!" - That is hysterical!

    Way to go on doing your own car repairs and maintenence, ladies!

    RCC, my kinda woman :) Back in the day (reference to my older years), I used to do all my car work maintenance wise. Now hubby does it all, and I do mean ALL. He has replaced entire motors, transmissions, etc. It's not his job but over the years the money he has saved us in car work would buy a decent house!

    My dear daughter, 23 yrs young owns an S2000 and does her own work. Funny, she weighs (wet) 100 lbs but when she couldn't get leverage on the frame she was pulling out of the back end, she asked her Dad to hold her legs so she wouldn't spin when she torqued it LOL! You can appreciate that :)

    We're a family of wannabe grease monkeys I guess LOL

    jzka, I can totally see paying to have it done if you don't have the time. When I was in college, I had all the time in the world. The only extra tools I *had* to buy was a cheap pair of C-clamps to compress the calipers. I decided I *wanted* to buy a torque wrench because, while I'm a fairly strong girl, I could generate enough torque on my own, I was a science major and was really interested and curious about getting the torque on the bolts *just right*.

    I replaced my front calipers (one was going, the other I figured I'd replace for good measure since it wasn't that much MORE work), rotors and pads, and bled the system. Even after buying the tools, it still cost me about half what having the one bad caliper replaced, and then having the rotors planed and the pads replaced would have cost me at the shop.

    I've special ordered high performance parts, for less than the bottom tier shop parts, had them shipped to the shop and installed.

    Better quality at a lower price.

    At Food Lion they have Hefty one zip bags for 10/$10 sale. There is an older coupon that went out about 3 weeks ago, it has hefty one zip bags $1off 2. If you buy 2 you get them for $1....good deal!! The coupon was in the group that had the McDonald's coupons on the back.
