I had a couple good B1G1 qs for Olay lotion and body wash that expire this week so the deal at Walgreens where you get a free bottle of Tide ($8.99) when you buy $30 in Proctor & Gamble products was good timing for me. I actually could have made out a little better on this deal by getting larger bottles of the Quench lotion instead, but I absolutely LOVE their new in-shower body lotion so I nabbed the last two bottles of it that they had instead 🙂 Since I got the smaller bottles I won’t do as well on the rebate either, but I’ll still get $8.83 back on the MIR.
They had the boxed colognes and other gift items on sale for 50% off so I got my dad and my husband each some Old Spice, plus I just had to get one more of the Nivea lotion / lip care deals before the end of the month (free lotion and 2 free lip). Here are a few of the deals I got:

When I was walking out of the store I realized that the catalina machine had not printed my coupon for the free Tide so I marched right back in and explained that I had well over $30 in P&G products and according to the ad I should’ve received the coupon. Well they sent me to the cosmetics counter to wait for a manager who took everything out of my bags then disappeared with my receipt to “find a calculator”. When he came back he said that I had $32.90 in listed products “before coupons” so he thinks that’s why it didn’t print. I told him I’d be happy to take the Tide instead and he agreed to let me do that 🙂 So just an fyi – be sure you got the coupon before leaving the store if doing this deal while using a bunch of qs!
