More Excedrin

I stopped by another A&P tonight and picked up 6 more Excedrins. They are on sale for $1.99 each and there are tons of coupons out there. I also used the A&P Excedrin coupons I received on my previous transaction. My total was $0.94 and I got back $7 in Catalina's and two more $1 Excedrin coupons. I'll also submit for a $3.79 Excedrin Back & Body rebate.

You get catalinas for Excedrin?? How many do you have to buy to get catalina? is there a limit? I use excedrin all the time (migranes since I was a child) so this would be a major score for me.

I love Excedrin migraine - it really helps my headaches and I unfortunately get migraines a lot too. The deal is that you buy $10 worth of various items (listed on the front inside flap of the circular) and you get back a $5 catalina. The Excedrins are on sale $1.99 and there are a ton of $1 and $2 coupons out there (check out the Upcoming Deals post from a couple days back for the details).

So you buy $10 worth of Excedrin (6 boxes) and depending on the coupons you use, you can get your OOP very low (my first order was zero, second was under $1) and get back $5! The kicker is that for some reason, its printing two $1 catalinas IN ADDITION to the $5 - so that's $7. My machines also printed more A&P Excedrin coupons that I was able to stack with manufacturer's coupons on the second transaction.

Sweet! I have bunch of $1 coupons but no $2. I guess I can try to see what works.

frugal, where exactly are these coupons? I looked through all of my coupons last night and didn't find any excedrin coupons. I need more excedrin but couldn't find any coupons. And A&P doesn't accept IPs so thats not an option. Help!

Amiyrah - There are tons of coupons out there for Excedrin: $2 off Back & Body or Excedrin PM (4/20 Parade magazine in paper), $2 Excedrin PM (6/8 SS), $2 Back & Body (5/4 SS), $1 off any (5/4 SS), and $1 coupons on some packages in the store. The circular actually advertises the price per box is $0.99 after using the coupons on the box, but I didn't see any. I actually got one off a bottle of Excedrin I bought at ShopRite earlier in the week. There was also a MIR for Back & Body in the 6/8 SS, and I think there's another rebate form coming out in Sunday's paper.

I guess I might have sent mine to another hound thinking I wouldn't use them because I don't have any excedrin coupons at all :o(

Oh well!

I have another newbie CVS question for you.. why is it that nobody is all over the free $9.95 credit on a loadable credit card? I mean couldn't everybody use a free $10?

frugalsuz said...

Amiyrah - Oh no! Don't you just hate when that happens! There were $2 Excedrin PM coupons in today's paper. Depending on how many you bought, you might be able to still do the deal.

Melissa,

I don't know! I saw that in today's circular and thought it would be a great deal. Let me see what I can find out.
