IF the 20% had kicked in, my total would have been $30.80. With that in mind, there were several products I would have bought INSTEAD of the day moisturizer:
1) Neutrogena Intense Day Moisturizer - $13.49
2) '' 50% - 6.49
3) Neutrogena Original bar soap - $2.99
4) '' - 1.49
5) Acne Soap - $3.19
6) '' - 1.59
7) '' - 3.19
8) '' - 1.59
9) Neutrogena Unscented soap - 2.99
10) '' 1.49
Minus (10) 1.00 off coupons
Minus $5/25 or $4/20
Total 23.50 Get 15 up.
Now, what you could do is get rid of the top two items and instead, buy two items that cost about $7.99 each, which would bring your total JUST OVER $30.00. Then, use the 10 neutrogena coupons (even better if you still have one of the $3.00 off), and your $5/25, for an OOP of $15.00, not including UPs earned, or Ups used to pay.
For me, I guess, a good deal depends heavily on how many UPs I have left to burn. For me, it was great - I had like $30.00 UPs left that I HAD to get rid of anyway, so even overspending a little bit, it worked out well for me.
Thanks! If I have UPs to burn I would rather use them for milk, sugar, and eggs though....
Got enough skin care stuff in the garage to last a lifetime already.
