    Default paid to buy Tampons!!!

    FYI,

    I so can't believe that I am the one posting this but......

    At Walgreens this week Always are on sale for 2.99 with $2.99 register rewards that you can use on a future purchase. Also there is a coupon in one of the flyers over the last few weeks for $1 off. So you get paid $1 for every pack of tampons you buy.

    I almost...almost....but didn't do this.

    btw, I did take the coupons with me to Walgreens when I went to get some other things and gave the coupons to other people that were buying them.

    That was sweet of you to pass on the coupons to those that could use it.

    I was wondering what you would be doing buying tampons. But, you know, they are good for bloody noses. And, actually, they are supposed to be good to put in bullet wounds to help stop the blood.

    i have never seen always tampons around here - just always pads.

    FYI an extra pad is a great thing to keep in your glove compartment to quick soak up any spills in the car - or is you had a water bottle or other drink that sweated or maybe leaked thru the cup into the cup holder - use a pad to suck the water right up real quick .
    lots of uses for pads including the originally intended lol

    some of my pts with ostomys use the extra small tampons to keep their ostomys from leaking while they are doing ostomy care - so they can do the care more effeciently and have less skin irritation and the ostomy bags stick better .

    I think he said tampons because it's a "guy thing". My boyfriend calls ALL feminine products tampons regardless of what they are. LOL

    I have a couple of coupons for Always, I might just do this deal. Thanks Josephhgoins!

    Thanks Rhayne and you are correct, to me they are all tampons. I don't get into specifics.

    You could have bought them using the coupons and then donated them to the food bank.

    They are great for bullet wounds, especially in a 'field' setting.

    Now that is good information to know, the bullet wounds. But wow, I hope I never need to know this.

    lol i thought maybe they had tampons in other areas but no i looked at the website all pads . funny all the same to guys- VERY different to the girls.

    quite a few of my senior lady pts on diuretics use pads just in case they have problems getting to athroom on time and leak a little - they dont need adult diapers and those poise pads for leakage are $$ so they use the pads just in case -.

    McD, who are you hanging out with? What kinda crew you got that you would know this?

    Also, I think I would just donate a little more money to the food bank this month. I had a hard enough time jsut cutting out the coupons and giving them away. NOT about to actually buy some.
