Originally I wasn’t going to buy Maalox, but when I saw that Walmart would pay me to but them, well, I couldn’t pass that up!
At Rite Aid the cashier asked me to buy a candy bar (.88) so she could take all my coupons and Rite Aid reward, otherwise the whole trip would have been free, with a payment in Rite Aid rewards of $7 for next week!
Loving the coupons!!

    I want to know where the candy bar is… I don’t see it in the picture ;oP

    Also, I’m hoping you meant to say that you use 2 $1/1 Stayfree coupons… right?

    Buy 4 Stayfree
    Use 2 B1G1 (makes two free)
    Use 2 $1/1 Stayfree coupons (for the remaining two)

    The write up says you used 4 $1/1 coupons, and that would be too many.

    Sorry, I totally spaced, put the candy bar in my candy drawer as soon as I got home, so little hands couldn’t get it. And yes, I boo-boo’d on the coupon count : ) for the pads, I forgot to add that I had a $1 off the Gain so that was completely free-DUH!!
    My two and a half year old was on a tear and pulling apart the couch while singing “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”. LOL ; )

    My Walmart wouldn’t let me get the Motrin ib because the coupon states 25 count or more and those are 24 count. I have heard others say though that they were able to use theirs.

      You may want to try again, I read my coupon carefully and it said ” Zyrtec 25 ct”, then lists the rest of the products allowed. It does not list a number of tablets for the Motrin IB. You could check directly with the store manager before you buy, just to make sure. usually they want you to buy at their store, so they can be pretty cooperative, if you make it seem like you will gladly go someplace else that will take your coupon. I know some stores can have different responses to what the coupons say, so good luck!
