This week’s grocery haul: I got paid $17 to take $108 worth of Vitamins, Advil, Lysol, Soap, Seasoning, Makeup, Drinks, Snacks, and More!

Here are the goodies.

This haul is actually a lot smaller than I thought it'd be, haha. I planned most of it the night before (usually a bad idea), but when adding it to my spreadsheet it turned out a lot less than expected. I got a few non-money-making deals just because I needed the items or I had rebates that were expiring (lactaid, nature valley, etc). This definitely could have been a better deal without those. I also managed to get 20 Ibotta offers when I only needed 18. Whoops.

No coupons this week!

 


Total: $107.87

Total Cash Back: $125.39

Final Cost: -$17.52 – Money Maker!

Here is the complete break down and sites used. If the image looks fuzzy, please zoom in or right click and open the image in a new tab. Imgur is being weird. The stores I went to are in the breakdown image. I don't include sites that take any receipt such as Coinout, ReceiptPal, etc on my breakdown. The stores are listed in the breakdown image. Brandclub takes a while to credit, so the amounts listed are what I expect to get once it finishes pending.

 

Brandclub is a newer addition to my hauls. If you're not familiar with the app, you can read about it on the post I made the other day. I also have a guide about how I do trips like this if you're interested. Note: Individual deals vary by user for most apps. If you don't have the deals right now, you can try checking back later.

If you aren't interested in this kind of thing, please keep your comments to yourself. If you don't like what I buy, you can buy different products. If you don't like hunting for deals, you can do surveys, microtasks, games or whatever else you like instead. There is no need to discourage other users just because you aren't interested in the same things!

 

Some additional deals I didn't/couldn't take advantage of:

Note: Normally I review all of these before posting, but I have a pretty nasty migraine so most of this is what I saw from last week. Some deals may no longer be available.

 

  • Arm & Hammer Slide – $10 back on SB when you buy two as well as $3 back each on Ibotta. They're $10.66 at my local Wal-Mart.

  • Johnson & Johnson deal – $5 back on a $15 purchase or $10 back on a $25 purchase of qualifying products like Motrin, Lactaid, Neutrogena, Band-aid, Aveeno, etc. There are a lot of good deals on Neutrogena at CVS this week where people were pairing it to end up being only a couple bucks. Expires 7/2/22

  • Garnier Fructis is $3 each at Dollar General, and there is two stacking $3 off 2 digital coupons. (Note: People have reported issues when buying one shampoo and one conditioner – the shampoo needs to be scanned first.)

  • Certain Covergirl products are $4.50 with a $4 coupon at Dollar General.

  • Beyond Jerky is on Ibotta and Shopkick. The 1oz bag comes out to be like a quarter.

Afterthoughts

I got another big bonus for the next week and a half. It should be easy enough to finish, I hope. I've noticed a lot of Any-Brand rebates the past couple days as well. They aren't lasting very long, but I've gotten about a dozen so far this week which has been nice.

I took a the photo on my tiny kitchen counter since I didn't want the Lysol on my bed, and my table is currently covered with stuff from a project. I tried to make everything readable, but feel free to drop a comment if you can't figure out what something is.

 

This week's haul was a split of the pickup order and some in-store shopping again. The first 10 items were from pickup as well as one Hormel Pepperoni. I decided to try to get a few more items with pickup this week, but I'm starting to run into problems. I found out that the any-brand rebates don't seem to work (I checked to make sure the "Any Sauce" would work beforehand on both sauces). I also found out that Fetch's e-receipt only seems to grab the first four items on the list, so I ended up having to edit my receipt to add everything else. I also messed and did a pickup order for one item which I then also grabbed in the store (the pepperoni). This is entirely my own fault, but considering I usually "plan" my haul by adding things to my Wal-Mart cart… I most likely will make this mistake again. Not to mention I have to remember to shop in-store, then sync BC, then grab my pickup order if I want everything to go into pending. It's starting to seem very inconvenient so I likely will stop using it once I run out of these Revlon rebates.

 

The haul in the store didn't go so bad aside from a nasty cashier. I found the Enfamom and Nature's Bounty on clearance which was great. I also found some cat toys that I know my cat likes. The Nature's Bounty had a $3 coupon on it, but it was expired and the cashier very rudely told me that they would not accept expired coupons. I only asked because my usual Wal-Mart honors all coupons taken off of the products… I didn't argue or anything, just asked nicely if there was anything they could do. Well whatever, it was still a great deal, but it is getting annoying having expired coupons on products. I have to run by that Wal-Mart again later today so I'll probably pick up some more Advil. It'd be nice if my Ibotta rebates reset so I can get more of those clearance items, but it usually takes two days, so I doubt I'll get that lucky.

I did end up messing up a bit in the store. I got 20 items instead of the 18 I planned. I just got all mixed up while I was there, and I had a migraine so my brain just wasn't working. I planned on getting the Any Sauce rebate from my pickup order which didn't happen. I also planned to grab a couple other items that weren't in this Wal-Mart. But I found the clearance items, and I grabbed the nature valley bars on a whim (I just wanted a protein bar since I was hungry, and my BC rebates are expiring sometime soonish). I thought I had recalculated properly, but clearly I didn't. Oh well, haha.

 

Time Spent

I planned my haul in the span of about an hour while I played with my cat and then my rats. I was in the store for about an hour total including doing my regular shopping, but I was intentionally wasting time since I had things to do afterwards and accidently left the house early. It took maybe 5-10 minutes to get my pickup order.

 

Food From Deals

I've been fighting a migraine all week so I didn't make anything. I've just been eating up the Bratwurst and Deep Fried Turkey with Sauce from last week. I think I'm going to make some more Peanut Butter Cranberry bars later this week if I'm feeling better. I need to figure out what I'm going to do with all this milk as well. Perhaps I'll make some fruit-on-bottom yogurt with that strawberry rhubarb jam I made last year.

Do you guys want me to continue showing things I've made using ingredients I got from rebate apps on these posts? Let me know in the comments, or you can vote on this poll if you want to remain anonymous.
