CVS limit Update!

For 2 of the FREE after EB monthly deals what catalog states is the limit is actually wrong. I was lucky enough to be able to purchase all the Free after EB monthly deals on Jan. 1 and noticed on my receipt that I did not hit my limit for 2 of the items. Because our store here has not had any of the Free after EB monthly stuff back in stock when I have been in the store I have not been able to buy anymore to tell you what the actual limits are.

The 2 items where the limit is more are:
  • Children's Throat Cooler Ice Pops 6ct=4.99
    Get 4.99 in EB back = FREE!
    Printable B1G1F Children's Throat Cooler Ice Pops 6ct
    You can buy 2 and make 4.99 in EB or buy 4 and break even!
  • Nutra Trim Weight Management chewing gum 48 ct =3.99
    Get 3.99 in EB back=FREE!
For both of these items the stated limit is 2, but it is more. If you have been able to purchase more than the stated limit and know what the limit is please let us know!

Dillon's closing

Yesterday I wrote about the discounts that could be found at the 29th and Topeka Blvd. Dillons that is closing. While those are great deals, it has been brought to my attention that many of you possibly shop there are might be disappointed about this closing.

If you would like to contact Dillons and ask that they keep this store open or simply express your concern you can do so here. Remember that a kind friendly email goes much farther than one that attacks or complains!

Dillons: 29th and Topeka Blvd. Closing!

A reader wrote in to tell me that the Dillons at 29th and Topeka Blvd. is closing! They have all of their dairy products (excluding milk and eggs) and all their frozen items (excluding pies but including meat and seafood) marked down 33% off. After coupons you should be able to score some great deals!

A clerk at the store said that for now they are not marking down any non-food items. If you shop there and notice that they have be sure to let us know!

See all other Dillons deals for the week here!

.57 cents for a 12 pack of Pepsi!

I was reading here that at Walgreens this week when you buy $20 worth of Pepsi Products you get 10 RRs back! If you have 4 computers and are able to print 7 of these Pepsi coupons for Pepsi One you could get 7 12 packs of Pepsi for .57 a piece!!!! Here is how it works:
  • Buy 7 12 packs of Pepsi One at $3/1=$21
  • Use 7 1/1 coupons=-7
  • Total OOP=$14, and you get 10 RR back
You pay $4.00 for 7 12 packs or .57/1!!!

Now if you don't want to spend the money OOP and would prefer to do a similar deal at CVS using EB's you can can get 10 EB back when you buy $20 worth of Pepsi products at CVS starting this Sunday. 12 packs are on sale 3/10. Here is how the deal would work:
  • Buy 6 12 packs of Pepsi One=$20
  • Use 6 1/1 Pepsi One coupons=-$6
  • Total=$14 and you get 10 EB back
You pay $4.00 for 6 12 packs or .67/12 pack!

K-Mart: Cheap GM cereal!

Alert: the North Topeka K-mart is doubling coupons this week... that makes these boxes of cereal practically FREE!

At K-mart this week General Mills cereal is on sale 5/$10. When you buy 5 boxes of cereal you can get a $5 K-mart gift card by mail or when you buy 10 you can get a $10 gift card by mail. The rebate form prints out after your receipt at the register.

There are many coupons for General Mills making this a very sweet deal! Most of the coupons you should have are $1/2 (any GM ceral) or .75/1 (Total cereal).

Deal Idea:
  • Buy 5 boxes of Total=$10
  • Buy 5 boxes of other GM cereal=$10
  • Use 5 .75/1 Total coupons=-3.75
  • Use 2 1/2 GM coupons= -2.00
  • Total=14.25
You can send in for a $10 K-Mart giftcard since you purchased 10 boxes of cereal making it $4.25 for 10 boxes of cereal. That is like paying .43 a box!

It has been reported that upon check out you also receive a K-mart coupon book also!

Note: Depending on your coupons you may pay a little more, but you shouldn't pay more than $1 a box if you have MF coupons.

Hy-Vee: redbox!

In the coupon booklet you can get upon entering Hy-Vee there is a coupon for a FREE redbox rental expiring 1/15!!! Make sure you get your booklet and order your free rental before Thursday!

Also a reader pointed out that if you sign up with redbox online you can get a FREE rental from that as well!

Just yesterday our Topeka CVS marked all of their Christmas stuff to 90% off! A reader was in and said they still had a good supply of stuff especially CANDY! Hurry before it is gone!
