Over Reaction & Conversion to Cash

June 28th, 2010 at 10:53 pm

Okay, so the allergist visit wasn't so bad. They use something now that feels like a comb pressing on you. I reacted to just about everything. No big surprise there. The Dr. gave me 2 prescriptions and sent me on my way. He did say that allergies can get worse when a woman is peri-menopausal.

I have to use CVS/Caremark if I want to get the best price on medicines. I get a 3mo. supply for $15. So, I spent $30 for the 2 prescriptions.

I used my HFS card. It increases my savings by letting my use pretax dollars to buy approved items. I just give them the credit card I get at the beginning of the year, until all the money is spent. Thats the tricky part, or at least it was in the past. Now I can sign into my account and know exactly how much I have left. I only put in the minimum of $125 this year. I guess I will up that amount for next year. I just have to save my receipts.

While at CVS, I got a raincheck for the Schick razor deal. Spend $20 get a 10ECBs. Hopefully, they will get more in stock soon. I do like the flexibility to do the deal at anytime that a raincheck give. I have until the end of July when my $5 off coupons expire.

I did the JF deal 2x today. I spent one of my 10+ups to get SCRs and products. That turns my Ups into a rebate check. Things didn't go quite as I planned, so I will only get $2.50 after oop expenses instead of $6.50. I did get the tube of athlete foot cream I wanted for the Troops. You win some, you lose some.

Tomorrow, I plan to purchase $25 of Aveeno products. I will use one of my 10+ups to pay for it, plus MQ and RA coupons. In return I will get a $10 gift card from Riteaid. This will makes purchases more flexible. And, there is a $10 Aveeno Mail In Rebate. (rebate form is at Aveeno.com) Buy $25 in one purchase and get a $10 rebate check. Like the SCR it will help me turn my +up into cash. I should have only tax + maybe $1 oop. Plus I get 3 good products to use or gift. A good opportunity all around.

Good thing tomorrow is Tuesday. I've accummulated alot of items for the Food Pantry. RiteAid and CVS have Stayfree BOGO this week. I have lots of $2MQ and BOGO to make it free and with no tax on those products, I do mean free.

    Glad to know that they are doing things better with allergy tests, so it doesn't lead to so much discomfort! Also great that you are able to use the CVS card for your scripts... that plus insurance can make all the difference. Good luck!
