Sunday Sales:

Kroger is having the second week of the mega event sale, so almost all of the sales will be the same as they were last week. This could be good if you missed out on anything you wanted last week, or bad if you (like me) didn’t find much appealing in the sale! Go HERE to check out the full match-ups!

CVS has one great freebie (Crest toothbrushes!) and a few cheapies. One that I wasn’t planning on getting, but was glad to see was a small bottle of Gilette Fusion shave cream for $2.19. You’ll get $2 in ECB back, making it only $.19! Go HERE for the best deals!

Walgreens has one GREAT deal that I was super-pumped to get! My husband is picky about what kind of soap he uses (he’s not a bodywash guy unfortunately because bodywash is easy to get for free!!!), and he was getting low, so I’m excited to get some Dove Men+Care soap for FREE!!!! They also have a pretty nice deal on diapers if you need some, so check that out!

Rite Aid has a few nice money-makers that I’m tempted to jump on! My problem has been keeping up with all of the different stores’ reward papers, but I’ve read that you can turn around and buy a Rite Aid gift card with their UP+ rewards! I may have to try it!

CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid deals 06/26-07/02

I am feeling really un-inspired by the drugstore deals this week. It could be just me because I’ve been so busy and tired lately. However, all sales have their ups and downs and I think that with all the amazing deals the past few weeks, what goes up must come down. There are still a few deals to be had, and bucks to be spent if you’ve been getting the other deals the past few weeks, so here are the best ones I see:

CVS

Rephresh tampons $6.79
 – $6.79 ECB
 – $1/1 printable coupon HERE
 = FREE plus $1 profit

There’s also a Dove deal going on that could be good, but I’ve heard online that the prices aren’t what they’re listed as in the ad and the ECBs aren’t printing. Maybe they’ll fix it?!

CVS and Walgreens this week

I went to CVS and Walgreens on Sunday (again, I’m so late in posting due to lack of a working camera and lack of sleep!) I haven’t had much luck the last two weeks in finding the best deals at Walgreens, so I had quite a few register rewards in my possession that were expiring. Usually, I try to use the RRs each week to get items that generate new RRs and not have to worry about them expiring, but my Walgreens has been completely out of the best deals by Sunday afternoon, so I had to burn some rewards or lose them! I used them on something that is hard to get a great deal on, and even without using the rewards, it was a pretty good deal. Here’s what I got:

Walgreens

Wal-Fex allergy medicine $3.99
 – $4 RR
Bayer advanced asprin $3.00
 – $2/1 coupon
 – $2 RR
Colgate toothbrush $2.99
 – $1/1 coupon
 – $2 RR
Sparkle 6 double roll paper towels (using my rewards!) $5.50 (x3)
 – $4 RR wyb $15 worth
Spree $.39 (x2)

Total before sales/coupons = $38.70
TOTAL AFTER  = $12.28 or 68% savings.

Because I used register rewards to pay for it all, my total out-of-pocket was only $4.55. The paper towels weren’t the deal of the year, but it’s something that is hard to find with a good sale or good coupons, and it’s something that we use. I normally shoot for no more than $.50 per roll, and these came out to be $.68 for a DOUBLE roll, so it was pretty good! Considering most of the bucks that I used were profit (from the free plus profit items the past few weeks), it wasn’t a bad deal at all!

CVS was the best of the trips once again!

Here’s what I got:

Motrin PM $4.00 (x2)
 – $1/1 coupon (x2)
 – $3 ECB (x2)
Zyrtec $5.99
 – $2/1 coupon
 – $6 ECB
Bayer Advanced $3.00
 – $2/1 coupon
 – $1 ECB
Papers $1.50 (x3)

 – $3/$10 First aid items printed form the coupon center (it worked with the painkillers!)

Total before sales/coupons = $27.96
TOTAL AFTER = FREE plus $.50 profit or 102% savings

My overage from the Zyrtec and the $3/$10 first aid items paid for my papers and then some!

I also paid only $.49 out-of-pocket!

Check Friday Finals to see how I made out this week in my $25 per week spending goal!

CVS and Walgreens trips 06/05 = 104% savings!

I planned on running out before church this morning, but it didn’t happen! So, I waited till naptime and left to do my drugstore deals then. Unfortunately by then Walgreens had been completely wiped out of just about everything that was free or close to it. Early bird gets the worm right?

I did get a couple of freebies, and CVS had everything (of course!) on my list and I had a GREAT trip!

First, Walgreens:

1 Reach toothbrush
1 Reach floss
1 bottle SoBe water
1 laffy taffy (not pictured)

Total before sales/coupons/RRs = $10.07
TOTAL AFTER = FREE plus $.30 profit

I spent $1 out of pocket because I didn’t have the exact dollar amount of RRs to completely pay for it, plus you always have to pay tax on items.

CVS

3 Sunday papers (my favorite guy on the corner to buy papers from was out by the time I got there this afternoon, so I had to pay full price in the store!)
2 bottles Crest Pro-Health mouthwash
2 OralB Pulsar toothbrushes
2 Colgate 360 toothbrushes
1 box John Freida foam haircolor
1 package Huggies diapers
2 boxes Excedrin

Total before coupons/sales/ECBs = $66.00
TOTAL AFTER = FREE plus $2.93 profit!

I spent nothing out-of-pocket because I used ECBs that I’d earned the past couple of weeks to pay for most of it and I paid for the rest with a gift card from prescription transfers (they take competitor’s prescription coupons!).

There were a few things that made my CVS trip so great. First is a $5/$30 purchase CVS coupon that you can get via email when you sign your email up with your Extra Care Card. The other thing was the John Freida hair color. I’d gotten a coupon in the mail to get one of these for FREE, plus CVS had a $3 ECB promo going, plus I’d gotten a $3/1 CVS coupon on my last reciept, so it was a $6 money-maker! It pays to hang on to those high-value coupons for something like this!

Total for both stores before everything = $76.07
TOTAL AFTER EVERYTHING = FREE plus $3.23 profit or 104% savings!

I’m also keeping track of my out-of-pocket spending, since I’m trying to keep that under $25 for the entire week for all my shopping! So, my out-of-pocket spending for the week so far is $1! I still have $24 left to go to Publix, Bi-Lo and Kroger with!

Last week, they stopped the tissue paper/wrapping paper profit deal after a few days, so you can try this, but it may not work for very long. Just be prepared for it to stop at any time!

Walgreens coupon for Hallmark wrapping paper!

*I JUST TRIED TO DO THIS, AND THE COUPON DOESN’T WORK FOR THE WRAPPING PAPER THAT IS BOGO, SO THIS WON’T WORK TO MAKE IT A MONEY-MAKER.

YOU CAN, HOWEVER, STILL GET FREE WRAPPING PAPER BY BUYING THE BOGO HOLIDAY WRAPPING PAPER, WHICH IS A COMPANY BY HALLMARK, AND IT QUALIFIES FOR THE HALLMARK RR DEAL. SO, IF YOU BUY 2, AT BOGO $1.99, THE COST WILL BE $1.99, AND YOU’LL GET A $2 RR, WHICH MAKES IT FREE. SORRY ABOUT THE CONFUSION. SOME OF THESE DEALS ARE SPECULATION UNTIL YOU GO OUT AND TRY IT YOURSELF!

Walgreens has published a printable coupon for Hallmark wrapping paper, which makes it
better than free!

Hallmark wrapping paper is BOGO $1.99 right now, and it’s part of the buy 2, get $2 RR back or buy 6, get $5 RR back deal as well.

You could combine this with the free tissue paper deal I posted about earlier to score all of them for free plus profit!

Buy two wrapping papers for $1.99 (after the BOGO)
-$.50/1 coupon (which should deduct $1 for buying two, since it’s a Walgreens coupon)
Buy four tissue papers at $.33 each after in-ad coupon
=$2.31 cost, plus you’ll get $5 RRs back!
