Prescriptions Earning $$

Prescriptions Earning Money
Prescriptions are a big expense for our family. With six people in our household, four of whom take daily medications, and all of whom are subject to catch ANYTHING going around town, it's a big expense, and one you can't always prepare for.

So, we play what I call the "Prescription Transfer Game"!

This is how it's done. Say I'm taking a monthly medication that has refills on the prescription. I might fill it the first time at a CVS, and I'll use a gift card coupon from CVS or from another store (they very often accept competitor's prescription offers). I may pay my $15 copay, and earn a gift card anywhere from $10-25!

Next month when it's time to have it refilled, I'll transfer it to Walgreen's. They, too, accept competitor's prescription offers, so if I don't have a coupon specific to Walgreen's, I'll print one for Rite-Aid, often available online. Again, I may pay $15 for my month's medicines, but I'll earn $25 for having it filled at Walgreen's.

Then, the next month, I'll transfer the prescription to Rite Aid or Publix. Sometimes Publix will accept competitor's coupons as well--it just depends!

Target has a pharmacy, too, and they often print their own prescription coupons in their weekly ads or on receipt coupons at checkout. KMart runs these coupons in their weekly ads FREQUENTLY!!!

This past week, for example, I had an RX filled for my oldest son, and spent $35. I earned $10 at CVS for it. I had an RX filled for me at RiteAid. I spent $15 and got a $25 Rite Aid card. I had two RXs filled for my husband, and we spent about $8 for them both, since one was free with the Publix antibiotics program. I didn't earn anything for them but I got something free! Then yesterday after my son's surgery, I had two prescriptions filled for him. Our out of pocket cost was $0 because we used a CVS gift card to pay for them both, AND we earned a $10 CVS card b/c I had a prescription coupon from this past Sunday's paper for KMart. I've got one waiting for me at CVS, a transfer, and when I pick it up, I'll pay $15 and earn $25 by using a KMart or RiteAid transfer coupon that CVS thinks is a competitor.

I say all this to prove to you that there's no need to pay full price for a prescription!!!! Look into all the different options you have to either PAY less or EARN more when buying them!!!

Publix $10 rebate on Huggies/Pullups Products

In the front of the new Publix coupon blooklet called "One Stop, One Store," there's a $10 rebate form for purchases of $35 of more worth of Huggies or Pullups products made in the same transaction.

Beside this rebate form is a Publix coupon for $3.00/1 mega pack of Pullups or a box of Huggies diapers. I have three kids in Pull-ups at least part-time, so anytime I can save on these I will!!! I combined this $3/1 coupon from Publix with the manuf. coupon for $2/1, making each mega pack of Pullups only $10.99. I bought three.

Their total value is over $47, so I can submit for the rebate, and I will today!!!! When I get the $10 back, it makes the Pullups only $7.66 per mega pack (40 in one size, 33 in another). This is a total savings of 52% and I'll ALWAYS take a savings on Pull-ups!!!!

Hope you can take advantage of this great deal, too!

Great Shopping Day today!

Today was a great shopping day for my daughter and me. We visited Kroger, Publix and Target, spending only $57.49 for $236.04 worth of products and groceries!!!

Didn't find the Princess and Frog in stock and Target but that's okay because I didn't bring my coupon......darn!!!! I must admit when I saw the holder for the movies was empty I was relieved. There's nothing like KNOWING you could've saved money if ONLY you had that coupon with you!!! I've got to find it and do better!!! The coupon expires on the 21st, so this afternoon my mission is to figure out what I did with that $10 coupon! If you haven't printed yours yet, visit http://www.disneymagicalsavings.com/ to print a $10 coupon off the purchase of the DVD/Blu Ray combo pack!!!

Anyway, I did get the other things I went for....and some others! In the end I paid only $5.55 out of pocket for $48.16 worth of products, including the Band-Aids I needed to do the rebate with the purchase of the Princess and the Frog movie!

At Publix, I stocked up on frozen foods like Fast Fixin's, which are bogo this week....and there's a printable coupon out there (or there was)....AND there are Publix coupons for these in the Healthy Kids coupon book that expires on 3/20....got some other frozen food and mostly BOGO items today. With those sales and my coupons, I spent $37.87 and saved over $91!

At Kroger, I had a less-than-stellar experience with the cashier....this is why I hardly ever go to that particular Kroger anymore....I think I'm writing a letter to Kroger corporate in the next day or so.....

but anyway, with the Buy 8, save $4 sale, I spent $14.07 for $58.80 worth of groceries. I DID have to pay close attention to the coupon discounts, though. She was definitely not helpful!

The biggest deal I got at Kroger was on Kraft block and bagged cheeses, normally $3.29/each. Right now they're .99/ea when you participate in the Buy 8, save $4 sale. At the store I visited today, there were coupons RIGHT there for $1.00/2. That made them only .49 cents each! I bought 8 of them and it cost me only $4.00!! That's only .71 cents more than 1 would cost at regular price! This is why we buy like we do and stock up when we can! It's the best way to save the most!!!

Alrighty...headed for lunch. The little kids are asleep and it's about an hour until the older kids get off the bus!

Monday Morning Deals to Report

Hey guys!
Just wanted to let you know about a couple of deals that are worth noting this Monday morning!

Jennie-O Turkey Burgers
During my Sunday afternoon trip to Kroger yesterday I found that Jennie-O Turkey Burgers, regularly 7.99 are priced at $5.99 this week. There's a Jennie-O $5 Mail In Rebate out there that you can use to have the whole box for only .99 cents out-of-pocket (OOP)!!!!

Springer Mountain Farms Chicken
I also found the Springer Mountain Farms Chicken, which appears to be a very healthy chicken option--not to mention it's a product of the state of Georgia, so I'd LOVE to support the company! In the 3/7/10 coupon inserts there's a $1.50/1 coupon. I found a package that was priced at $4.01 and used the coupon, making it just $2.50 for that package. BUT on the package was a scan-in coupon that you use with your cell phone--hubby will take care of this. It promises a $2 rebate to your paypal account, or if you choose, you can donate the $2 to a particular charity. Honestly, I'll take the $2. It makes the pack of chicken only .50 cents. AND, I'm pretty sure that I read each household could do this deal 2 or 3 times!

In my workshops I teach people to never let coupons for fresh fruit or veggies, milk, or meat expire because they're so rare! Same thing here!!!

Snapfish--Free Mug w/$10 purchase!
Lastly, I got an email from Snapfish today with this neat deal! I know it's not Christmas, but think ahead....or think Mother's Day, Father's Day, Grandparents Day, etc....that happens between now and then. Or, order something for Christmas and add it to the Christmas gift stockpile you're collecting....You don't have one??? Get a Rubbermaid bin and get started today. I'll talk more about this in a future post!

Here's the Snapfish details:
Spend $10 at Snapfish.com and you'll get a free mug with a picture that you upload. This is a great deal b/c usually if you can find a free mug, business card, etc., the company charges a fee for uploading your picture or logo. But this is free, using the code SNAPPYBD at checkout. If you don't get the Snapfish emails, sign up to do so! In the month of April, as they celebrate "Snappy's" birthday, they'll have a "deal a day", games and giveaways all month long, and a special 10 days of savings from April 1 to April 10!

Have a great day; Keep saving centsably!!!
