When couponing makes me crazy...

CompoundW Freeze Off or Wartner Freezing Wart Remover Limit 1 Rebate per brand Rebate only valid 7/10-7/16/11 See in store Single Check Rebates directory for details. Single Check Rebate offer requires sign up at riteaid.com/SCR or by mail. <br />price with wellness+ cardRite-Aid has a deal on Compound W this week. Normally, it's $18.99, but it's on sale for $10.99. Then there's a $2.00 off coupon on coupons.com. PLUS, there's a $10 mail-in rebate. So in the end, it's a $1 money-maker.

Pretty cool, especially considering Scott just told me last night he'd like me to pick up some Compound W. (http://www.riteaid.com/stores/weekly_ad/detail_item.jsf?tnumber=T43163&circularId=2663&page=3&region=westfrdy)

So I printed the coupon. Except my printer decided not to work and on some sites, you can only print the coupon once. So according to the site, I'd printed it and couldn't print another. ARGH!!!!!

Annoying, but not the end of the world. I hopped on the kids' laptop and tried to print it from there. More problems. So I got on Scott's laptop. Even more problems! I was pulling my hair out.

All for a flipping $2 coupon.

I know, I know. At some point, it's just not worth it any more. But before I went to Rite-Aid this evening, I tried once more on Scott's computer and... SUCCESS! I got my coupon.

Not that I could use it or anything. Rite-Aid was out of the product. Natch. And the dumb Rite-Aid employees were absolutely no help. I had to go back and forth from the aisle (in the back of the store) to the front counter FIVE times trying to get the right product.

I finally just got a rain check. Rain check number three. Since, of course, they were out of the other two things on my list.

Target, too, was out of all four things I was super-couponing. Now I'll have to go to the Super Target 12 miles away. Big inventory means bigger chance of success.

Oh, and while I'm talking about Target, guess what??? My local Target is putting in a big ol' grocery section! I can't wait!!!!!!

October 9th is the expected completion date. Guess who'll be first in line at 8am that day? LOL
