Walgreens: Another MONEY MAKING deal!

Earlier this week I posted a money making deal that is valid until tomorrow (Saturday) as apart of the buy $25 get $5 in RR back. Well I am glad to say there is another MONEY MAKING deal to be had!

You might have seen here that Walgreens is offering the Loreal Age Perfect Pro-Calcium item that was FAR last month as a FAR again this month. Although it is not in the easy saver book and it might not show up when you enter your receipt it is valid that you will get a full rebate when this item is purchased and receipt entered for rebate. Here is the deal I did this morning and is only good until the end of the day Saturday!:
  • Buy 2 Arm and Hammer detergents=13.98
  • Buy 1 Loreal Age Perfect=14.99 (rebate is up to 19.99 but most stores in Topeka have these on sale for 14.99)
  • Total=28.97
  • Use 2 1/1 Arm and Hammer printables=$2
  • Use 1.99 Arm and Hammer in ad coupon=-$10
  • Total=16.97
You will get back $5 in RR and turn in for a 14.99 ES rebate for a total back of 19.99=$3 MONEY MAKER!

Note: I did this deal this morning and actually used $15 in RR to pay for it so I only spent 1.97 OOP. 1 of my RRs was the $5 RR I already got from this week and I was able to use it and still got my $5 RR back! Make sure you pay with RR first, then MF coupons and lastly the Walgreens Arm and Hammer in ad coupon!

P&G $120 Coupon Book!

P&G is offering a coupon book with $120 worth of coupons inside! You have to buy $50 worth of P&G products to obtain this book. Considering that we are able to pay very little each month at CVS and Walgreens for P&G items I bet getting this book will be easy! You can read more details here!

Hy-Vee for 12/10-12/16

Looks like some good deals. A few of them even beat out the Dillons price this week! My goal with this post is to find the best deals for the week from the flyer. Not all deals in the flyer are a great deal so I don't post everything. I always look to beat the Aldi price since they generally have the lowest prices. I try to post the Aldi price next to the Hy-Vee/other brand price so you can see the extra savings you are getting.
  • Hy-Vee whipped topping=.77/1 (I think this beats the Aldi price?)
  • Hy-Vee cream cheese=.88/1 (beats Dillons and Aldi this week!)
  • 5 lb. boxes of California Clementines=5.88 ( if this is the "cuties" brand then you can use a 1/1 coupon getting this for 4.88- beats Dillons price!)

In-ad coupon deals:

  • Cook's whole Ham=.99/lb. (might be worth getting one now for Christmas dinner!)

  • Selected Varieties of GM cereal are $2/1 wyb 4 this week. The sale is 4/$12 and wyb 4 boxes $4 is automatically deducted from your total. Use .55/1 coupons off of the widget and here to get select boxes for $1!)

Walgreens: 4-day MONEYMAKER DEAL!

Note: I did do this deal this morning and it worked out great! I even used last week's RRs to pay for it and had no problems!!! I did have to add in an extra item to make sure my total was over $5 before using the RR. Remember to use RRs first, then mf coupons and then Walgreen's coupons.

Walgreen's has a 4 day ad (Wed.-Sat.) out again this week! This works the same as last week where when you buy $25 worth of any product you get $5 RR in return! From what we know your total DOES NOT have to be $25 before coupons- YAY! Below is my MONEY MAKING scenario for this ad. Other scenarios along with a link to the ad can be found here.
  • Buy 2 Arm and Hammer detergents at 6.99/1=13.98
  • Buy 3 Robitussin at 3.99/1=11.97
  • Total=25.98
  • -2 1/1 Arm and Hammer coupons found here=-$2
  • - 3 3/1 Robitussin coupons found here=-$9
  • - 4 day sale In-ad coupon making Arm and hammer 1.99/1=-$10
Your new total will be $4.98 and you will get back $5 in RR for the $25 promotion AND $5 RR for buying 3 Robitussin!!! That is a $5 MONEYMAKER!

Note: The limit on the Arm and Hammer is 2 PER COUPON/TRANSACTION. Some blogs are promoting a deal plan where you buy 4, but I don't think that will work because of the limit!

Ham Cheese Stuff and Puff: Price Breakdown

My apologizes for getting this up so late. We were tied up this morning and then I most definitely needed a nap this afternoon! The recipe for this can be found here!

Ham and Cheese Stuff and Puff: Serves 6
  • 5 eggs (I bought 1 dozen for 1.55 the other week)=.65
  • 1 cup milk= (1 gal.=2.99 and has about 16 1 cup servings)=.19
  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream(I got my sour cream for FREE the other week! However, for regular purposes Aldi 16 oz. sour cream is .99/1)=.24
  • 1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped broccoli, thawed, drained (I got mine for .27 the other week, however on regular occasion you can get a bag of frozen veggies on sale most weeks at .99/1)=.99
  • 1 pkg. (6 oz.) Stuffing Mix for Chicken=.79 (I use Aldi brand)
  • 9 oz. (1-1/2 [6-oz.] pkg.) Smoked Ham, chopped (At Aldi I just buy what looks like half of of a ham roll that has been pre-cooked. I can usually get 2-3 meals out of this when I chop it up myself. These usually cost around $5)=2.50 or less
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided (I never pay more than 1.77/2 cup bag)=.89
Total for this meal=$6.25 or $1.04 per serving!

For me this week this meal will only cost me $5.26 b/c of the deals I got on frozen veggies and sour cream!

I hope you enjoy this one!

  • Buy 3 Robitussin at 3.99/1=11.97

You make an overage of $2.03!!!!
