CVS Dec. 7th

Well there isn't much this week, but if you are looking for a way to "burn" some of those extra bucks you "made" from black Friday there a few deals you might be interested in. Below are the best deals I see:

Powerade 32 oz. select varieties=1.59
Get $1.59 back in EB=FREE!!! Limit 1

Buy $20 in Energizer batteries, get $10 EB back, limit 1
Prices start at 5.99

Use 1.25/1 coupons from recent inserts or 1/1 coupon here
  • Deal Idea:
  • Buy 4 packs at 5.99=23.96
  • Use 4 1.25/1 coupons=-$5
  • Total=18.96 and get $10 EB back=8.96 for 4 packs of batteries! Might come in handy for Christmas gifts!
Spend $25.00 and get $5 in EB back on Huggies products, limit 1
Jumbo pk. diapers or pull ups (excludes overnights)= $10.00
Huggies wipes or wash= $3.00
Use 1/1 or 1.50/1 diaper coupons
  • Deal Idea:
  • Buy 2 packages of diapers=$20
  • Buy 2 wipes/wash=$6
  • Total=$26
  • -2 1.50/1 coupons
  • total=$23, and you get back $5 in EB=$18 for 2 jumbo packs and wipes/wash. Remember you can turn the diapers in to caregiver's marketplace for $1 each. So your total will actually be $16 after EB and rebates. Not a great deal but if you need to burn bucks this is the way to go.
I don't have a plan yet but if I buy anything it will be the Powerade and diapers. Please alert us to any other great deals you might see. Don't forget to check out the December EB deals here!

Walgreens: $5 RR plan

From now until the end of the day Saturday you have the chance to gain a $5 RR from Walgreens when you spend $25 on ANYTHING in the store. There are conflicting comments about this RR and how it works. Some say your subtotal has to be $25 after coupons and other reports deny this to be true. The ad says nothing about the use of coupons. So I have created a "safe" plan that should work regardless and you are only spending 1.99 OOP! Here it is:
  • Buy 1 Colgate total or Max Fresh toothpaste=2.99 (get $2 in RR back)
  • Buy 1 FAR bald guys item=5.99 (FAR, 5.99 back in monthly rebate)
  • Buy 2 Reach products=$6 (get $6 in RR back)
  • Buy $15 worth of coke products=$15 (get $5 in RR back) (I will be buying 3 12 packs and 4 2 liters)
-1/1 colgate coupon
- 3 1/1 Coke coupons (printed from coke rewards)
New total=25.98

I will get back $5 RR for purchasing $25 worth of stuff, $2 RR for Colgate, $6 RR for reach, $5 RR for Coke and a 5.99 rebate for the monthly product=23.99 back, which means I only spend 1.99 OOP for all that!

I like to look at this as getting 3 12 packs of Coke for only 1.99 or .66/1!

What is Walgreens up to?

Did you get the 4 day ad for this week? I just heard about it from a friend. I guess you will get a $5 RR when you purchase $25 of ANYTHING in the store. The great thing about this is that this works different than a $5/$25 coupon... your subtotal does not have to be $25 after coupons. You can actually spend less than $5 out of pocket and still get your $5 RR! You can see more details about this deal here. You can also see the Walgreens ad running this here. Be sure to check back later in the day for the deal I cook up- you won't want to miss it!

  • 1 large onion (1 cup) of chopped onion (bag of 5=1.20 ish at Aldi)=.24

  • 1 cup of milk=.20 cents
  • 1 cup of shredded chedder cheese (This week I payed 1.67 for a 2 cup bag)=.84 cents
