HEB fun - FREE ice cream, BBQ sauce & almost free batteries

get everything pictured here for just $0.10 cents! (plus tax of $3.30) after all savings and money cards!! $3.40 is GREAT !!
details -
Currently, HEB has a YQ (yellow HEB in store coupon) for a free 1/2 gallon of Creamy Creation ice cream when you buy participating Energizer batteries.
They have another YQ for a free $10 HEB gift card when you buy any combination of $25 worth of Energizer Batteries, Schick Razors, Playtex Infant, Playtex tampons, Banana Boat, Hawaiian Tropic or Wet Ones.(The "B" coupons can be combined w mfg coupons per HEB's coupon policy)
They have a 3rd YQ for $1 off select size Energizer batteries (4 ct AA and AAA, 2 ct C and D and 1 ct 9V)

And finally, they have special 8ct packages with a little blue insert inside which can earn you a $10 debit card or $10 into your paypal account when you collect 3 codes (limit 4 rewards per household) you HAVE to purchase these to qualify for the $10 card See picture below:here is how it worked out for me -
1st transaction -
Energizer Max AA 8ct $5.97ea x 3 = $17.91
used 3 $1 Energizer insert coupons from my 5-22 SS (also can be found in the 5-1 SS) =$14.91
Energizer Max AAA (or AA) 4ct $3.57ea x 2 = $7.14
used 2 YQs for $1 off select Energizer (used for the 2ct pks) =$5.14
$17.91 +$7.14 = $25.05 (before coupon price) which qualifies for the free $10 gift card
( I have heard there are C & D 2 pks which are close in price to the 4ct AA or AAA which will work if your store carries these, may be priced different, so it might not be exactly the same cost though)
Creamy Creation ice creams $4.48ea x 3 = $13.44
used 3 YQs for free ice cream WYB batteries (only the 8ct qualifies for the ice cream) so FREE
(I found these YQs both near the ice cream and near the batteries)

HEB gift card $10 x 1 (must grab gift card yourself or ask cashier to do so) = $10 used 1 YQ for free $10 gift card wyb $25 worth of Energizer( found near batteries) = $0

KC masterpiece $1 x 3 = $3 used 3 $1 coupons from 5/15 SS = $0

total $20.05 + tax = $21.70
got the $10 gift card, and submitted the 3 codes for $10 mastercard = $1.70 total for everything!

2nd transaction almost identical to the first minus the kc masterpiece, and I paid with the $10 gift card from the first transaction, so my total was $11.70 and submitted these 3 codes for another $10 mastercard. $1.70 total for everything.

=$3.40 cost for
52 AA batteries
12 AAA batteries
6 1/2 gallons of ice cream
3 bottles of BBQ sauce

Randalls Run

I got everything pictured + pack of M&Ms not pictured (Val ate them) for $3.44 out of pocket, and I left with a $4.00 catalina, good towards my next shopping order.
(HAHA the tooth brushes alone are enough to last my girls more than a year, & I still have a few in my stash from my previous years of couponing!!)
the best deal was the reach toothbrushes, and glad I checked again because they were out the other day.
thru 6/12 get up to a $4 catalina WYB reach toothbrushes.
buy 2 get $1, buy 3 get $2, 4 or more get $4 (must be purchased in the same transaction)
there were kids 2pks for $1.87, also 1pks for the same price, and a coupon for $2off any reach 2pk, or $2 any 2 singles. If you can get 4 of the 2 packs, thats the best deal.
4 2pks @ $1.87 ea = $7.48, you can use 4 x $2 coupons which brings the total to -$0.52 and then you get a $4 CAT, over a $4 money maker!
my store only had 2 2pks, so I got 2 singles to bring it to 4packs total-
1st transaction -
2 pack - $1.87
2 pack $1.87
1 single $1.87
1 single $1.87
used 3 $2 coupons (-$6) = $1.48
used also a $1 cat I found on the floor = $1.01 OOP (should be lower but the tax was all screwy!!)
and got a $4 catalina
2nd transaction
4 singles $7.48 used 3 $2 coupons = $1.48 = tax = $1.60 OOP
got another $4 catalina
3rd transaction
2 joint juice 50% off on clearance rack = $1.50 ($0.75ea) used 2 $1 coupons = -$0.52
2 packs of 6ct paper towels $4.99ea 2 day in store coupon = $9.98 used $2 coupon from facebook game = $7.98
pack of M&Ms not pictured, Val ate them $1.19
$8.65 total used the 2 $4 catalinas I just received and then a + tax = $0.83 OOP I also got another $4 catalina for buying the Viva towels!

I don't know how long the paper towel catalina in running, but I got $4 when I bought the 2 packs of paper towels, and the in store coupon I think is only good through today, saturday?

Keurig B60

After receiving a roach infested used Keurig on Ebay (seller was really nice and refunded my $ within an hour), I decided I needed to buy new, I still however did not want to pay retail for it, and they are selling from about $139.99 - $149.99 in stores, and most big online stores. I did run across a seller "coffeehots" on ecrater (which is a host for online stores, kinda like ebay), and they (coffeehots) stated the item was brand new, and according to the buyer feedback the Keurigs were sent directly from Keurig. I paid $90.99 with free shipping, ordered it on Saturday and it got here today Wednesday! It is shipped from Keurig, and I opened it up and its identical to the ones sold in stores, extra sample k-cups and all!!!
I am making up the difference in what I paid for this new one by selling the 4 pieces that came off of the used Keurig since the seller did not want it back, and the pieces that came off were easily cleaned and sanitized in bleach, and were really popular on ebay. I have already made $24 off of 2 of the items selling via "buy it now" making the cost of the new one now at $66.99!!! and if I sell the other items at their minimum auction price that will bring it down to $49.99!
