If any of you purchased the Scrubbing Bubbles Action Scrubber refill packs and expected to get a Walgreens rebate for them, you may need to call the EasySaver™ Catalog Customer Service number (888-324-3028). This is rebate # 30. In the book, it is listed as "Action Scrubber, 6 Pack." The rep I spoke with told me that I bought the refills, which didn't qualify. He said I needed to buy a 6 pack of the Action Scrubber. To those of us who purchase and use this stuff, the rebate is obviously for the refill packs. I tried politely explaining to him that they didn't even make six packs of the Action Scrubber, but they did make six packs of the refills for the Action Scrubber. He didn't believe me, but said he would go ahead and do a one time approval. A one time approval? What am I going to again in an hour and ask someone to approve it a second time? I thought it best not to ask. I just want my rebates w/out any more hassle. If he keeps his word, I should have $130.83 put on my card within a few days.

Walgreens had an unadvertised special on Quilted Northern Ultra Plush 6 packs (larger rolls). They were stacked by the doorway and they were marked $3. I had two $1/1 coupons, so I bought two at $2 each. I'm not sure if that deal is going on everywhere, but here is a link for a $1/1 Q.N. Ultra Plush coupon.

****EDIT****I just realized there is also a $1/1 coupon for the Quilted Northern Ultra Plush in the October Easy Saver. So, I could have gotten these for $1 each.

I'm sorry to say that that was the highlight of my Walgreens trip. I've never had so many problems in one Walgreens visit. They didn't have any of their sales programmed in and the RR was not working on the cherry flavored Alka Seltzer (although the RR signs were posted beneath EACH flavor Alka Selzer). I had to ask for a manager no less than four times, and even she didn't know the policy (tried telling me you couldn't use a manufacturer's coupon and expect to get register rewards).

I love the deals you can get at Walgreens, but they could stand to make things less complicated for both the consumer and for their employees. If that manager had not been so nasty, I would have felt sorry for her. There was not a five minute span that went by without her being called to the register, I kid you not! In any case, I will stand my ground in these situations every time. I work too hard to figure my deals and drive too far to get them to go home with anything less. You advertise it, you honor it!

Dillons A.M. Mad Dash...

I left early this a.m. so that I could hit Dillons on my way in to work. The loot:

The cost before coupons: $27.29
The coupons:
4 B1G1 - Glade Plug Ins Scented Oil Warmers (ALL FREE!!)
1 .55/2 Williams Chili Seasoning
1 .45/1 Fleischmann's Yeast
1 $3 catalina for Johnson's purchase
1 $2 catalina (from last week's Glade Plug Ins deal)
1 .50 catalina (from yesterday's Fleischmann's Yeast purchase)
Total after coupons: $2.43 + $1.89 tax = $4.32 OOP
Received $15 in catalinas (3 $4 catalinas - good on any purchase; 1 $3 off any 3 Johnson's Baby product)

I was happy to see that they doubled the .50 catalina, but I didn't get another .50 catalina for this Fleischmann's purchase. ??? I'm not complaining, just contemplating...

New P&G eSaver

A while back, I registered my Dillons card with P&G so that I could load it up with online coupons. While I love the idea of this convenience, I'm usually disappointed with their lackluster offers. However, this latest batch actually has some good deals! There are some B1G1 deals on Olay Ribbons Body Wash, Cover Girl Mascara, and Pantene hair products. There are also some higher value coupons for $2, $3, and even $5 off. If you have a Dillons/Kroger card and you're not loading it up with e-coupons, you might want to consider it.

You can register here: P&G eSaver

You can get even more e-coupons by registering your card with You can do this at (look for the Shortcuts link in the lower left hand corner). Or you can register directly from
