More to come (either from me or Erin)


  1. On the Physician's Formula, where is that Rite Aid coupon from? It says manufacturer coupon on it - that's why I was wondering. If it truly is a man coupon, then you wouldn't be able to stack it with the $1 man coupon.

  2. It is the same one from last week that I got from Southern Savers. When I ask my RA about it they said it would be taken as a RA coupon b/c it says RA on it and I was able to stack them. We will see what happens this week.

  3. Some of those Physician's Formula bronzers have a MFC peelie on them for $5/1??

    Also, some of the Blink Tears at Walgreens have a $4/1 MFC peelie on them (there are also $2/1 MFC peelies) - just in case you happened to have gotten some from there recently.

  4. Has anyone actually gotten the physician's formula using 2 of the Rite Aid coupons? They print huge! and say one only correct?They were out of Blink Tears in my Rite Aid so I didn't try the deal. thanks J

  5. For the Old Spice, there are buy one body wash, get a deoderant free as you had listed. But there are also buy a body wash and deoderant and get a spray free. Can both of these coupons be used in the same transaction to get two free products? If so, can you also use the $1/2 coupon on top of the others? I know GE and CVS allow a BOGO and $ off in the same transaction, but not sure about RA or about two B#GO

  6. RA does allow a B1G1 coupon and a money off coupon in the same transaction. BUT it would need to be $1/1 not $1/2. The reason is that you are only allowed 1 MFC coupon per item (unless it is a MFC coupon printed in a RA ad - then you can use another MFC coupon found in the newspaper or online - per RA's coupon policy).

    So, you are buying 2 items and you have a B1G1 coupon:

    Item 1 - you buy this and are allowed to use a $/1 coupon (ex. $1/1)

    Item 2 - use B1G1 coupon (this coupon only applies to this item - think of it this way - Since you are buying the other item, you can use this coupon to get item 2 for FREE.) You may not use another $/1 coupon. You've already used a MFC coupon on this item. (ie. You can't use a $1/2 coupon on item 1 and 2 because you're using the B1G1 coupon on item 2.)

    Now about your using a B1G1 coupon and a B2G1 coupon. . . Technically it IS legal.

    Item 1 - $1/1 coupon or no coupon

    Item 2 - FREE using B1G1 coupon

    Item 3 - Free using B2G1 coupon

    HOWEVER, all this being said (or typed) you'll probably run into trouble with the cashier. Most cashiers and/or managers probably won't allow this. Most will probably think it not legal. But it is legal. . . so, if you want to try it, do. I just wouldn't push the issue if you run into trouble as it is better to miss out on a small deal and maintain a good relationship with your local RA cashier. : )

    I hope this makes sense.

  7. I was able to use 2 of the $5.00 Physicians Formula Make up coupons b/c again they are telling me that they are RA coupons not MFC's even though that is what they say. I would definitely try it with your RA but I wouldn't argue if they won't. Maybe I have just been lucky both times.
