      Congrats!!!

      The bigger savings come when you have several weeks worth of

      coupons, too.

      Oh- and at Walgreens, if something is Free after Rebate (FAR), you

      can use a coupon on it AND redeem the rebate for the full amount

      BEFORE the coupon!

      So, if it’s $4.99, and you have a $1.50 off, you pay only $3.49, and

      then you receive $4.99 back in the mail. And, if you choose to get

      it back in the form of a Walgreens gift card, you get 10% added to

      it, so you get a gift card for $5.48 back, meaning they paid you

      $1.99 to take it out of their store, not counting tax. And hey,

      either way, it pays for the tax on the item, and you still get extra

      back.

      Good luck!!
