My Walgreens plan

Since Walgreens came out with a two-day only coupon for $5 off a $20 purchase, I'll be making a stop today or tomorrow. The big factor in my decision is the free-after-monthly-rebate water pitcher filter that fits Brita pitchers, since I've been waiting for this coupon to buy the filter.

Here's my plan:
3 bags of Walgreens brand plastic ware, 39 cents each with weekly ad coupon (I'm starting to stock up for Tyler's birthday party) - $1.17
6 bubble mailers, 39 cents each with weekly ad coupon - $2.34
water pitcher filter - $6.99
Bioinfusion shampoo - $5.99
6 boxes Jello, 39 cents each with weekly ad coupon - $2.34
3 boxes Jiffy, 39 cents each with weekly ad coupon - $1.17

Total: $20.00 (I couldn't have hit that total exactly if I'd been trying)

I'll pay $15 plus tax, and I'll get rebates of $6.99 for the filter and $5.99 for the shampoo, plus 10% because I'll have them applied to a Walgreens gift card, for a total rebate of $14.28. Or in other words, I'll get all of the above for 72 cents plus tax.

    I went to walgreens this week and used one of the in-ad coupons for $.39 for the Jello. I bought three but later when I got home I noticed it only took off of 1 of them. Do they need to scan the coupon once for each item?

    WOW! That is seriously impressive!!

    Is there any way you can throw in 2 "kraft free" coupons, from the All You Mag, considering all the jello you're buying? Either way, that is quite impressive. Good Job!

    @Jennifer - No, the coupon only needs to be scanned once. I've never run into that problem before, but thanks for the heads up!

    @Shan - Thanks :)

    @Bec - Thanks, that's a great idea, but I don't have those q's. I wish I did, but I don't go to Wal-Mart and I haven't subscribed to All You yet (I keep thinking there will be a great deal for it, but I should probably just bite the bullet). It would certainly make it an even better deal, though!
