The Best Things in Life are Free(bies!)...

REMINDER - since its a holiday weekend, there will be only one coupon insert - the P&G insert. You can check Taylortown to see if you want any of the coupons and if its worth it for you to buy the paper.

As always, my deals all come from the wonderful folks at HCW and Erica at iheartcvs.com and iheartriteaid.com (and very seldomly, from my very own noggin'!). If I've missed anything, please let me know! You can post a comment or email me at frugalsuz@hotmail.com. Here we go...

CVS - *the $2 CVS skincare Q expires 8/31 and you can print a $2 off $10 coupon on iheartcvs.com

  • Kiss or Broadway artificial nails buy two and get $5 ECB - prices start at $1.99 (limit 1) = $1.02 profit
  • Atkins bars $1, use $1 Atkins Advantage Bar coupon (6/1 SS) = FREE
  • Suave products - buy $6 worth, get $2 ECB (limit 5), body wash is $2/bottle and use BOGO coupon (6/22 RP). Buy three bottles = $6, minus $3 in BOGO coupons = $3 and get back $2 ECB = $1 for three body washes
  • CoverGirl Wetslicks $5.99, use $1 coupon (8/3 P&G *expires 8/31 or 8/31 P&G) and get back $5.99 ECB = $1 profit
  • Colgate toothpaste $2.99, use $1.50 coupon or from All You magazine and get back $2 ECB (limit 2) = $0.51 profit

Rite Aid - its the start of the September SCR's - valid from 8/31 - 9/27

  • Bic Markers 3 for $0.99, use $1 off 2 coupon (8/3 SS) = FREE *Buy 3 to get $0.99 price

Hmm, I wonder if you bought 6 markers, could you use three coupons? That would give you $1 overage...

  • *Buy on 8/31: Oral B advantage toothbrush $2.99, use $1 coupon (8/3 P&G *Expires 8/31!) and get back $2 (SCR #86) = FREE
  • Crest Toothpaste $2.49, use $0.75 coupon (upcoming 8/31 P&G) or $1 coupon (8/3 P&G - expires 8/31) and get back $1.74 (SCR #) = FREE or $0.25 profit w/$1 Q
  • Garnier fructis shampoo 2 for $7, use two $2 Garnier coupons (from Dollar General) and get back $3 (when you buy 2) (SCR #30) = FREE
  • L'oreal Advance Revitalift Anti Wrinkle Concentrate $14.99, use $3 coupon (7/20 SS) and $3 RA coupon and get back $14.99 (SCR #21) = $6 profit *Might also count towards SCR #24 as skincare.
  • Pantene Expressions $4.99, use $2 coupon (upcoming 8/31 P&G) and $1 in-circular coupon and get back $1.99 (SCR #31) = FREE

Triple Dip alert: Since Pantene is a P&G product, it should count toward SCR #75: $10 RA gift card with $30 P&G purchase AND toward SCR #24: Modella cosmetic bag (worth $25) and $25 in manufacturer's coupons when you purchase $25 of hair care/skincare/cosmetic items. Here's a great scenario from a poster called "jesusisprecieux" at HCW:

For SCR #75 (buy $30 of P&G products, get $10 RA gift card) buy:

  • Crest Toothpaste $2.49, use $1 coupon (8/3 P&G) and get back $1.74 (SCR#2) = $1.49 OOP, FREE after rebate
  • 3 Crest Pro Health $4.99 x 3 = $14.97, use three $0.75 coupons (8/31 P&G) and get back $10.00 (SCR #602) = $12.72 OOP, $2.72 after rebate
  • Pantene Expressions Shampoo $4.99, use $2 coupon (8/31 P&G) and $1 in-circular coupon get back $1.99 (SCR #31) = $1.99 OOP, FREE after rebate
  • Pantene Expressions Conditioner $4.99, use $2 coupon (8/31 P&G) and $1 in-circular coupon = $1.99 OOP (no rebate on this one - limit is one) or $2.99 if store won't allow you to use second in-circular coupon
  • Pantene Styling product $4.99, use freebie coupon WYB Pantene Expressions Shampoo/Conditioner (8/31 P&G) = FREE
  • Oral B Advantage Toothbrush $2.99, use $1 coupon (8/3 P&G) and get back $2 (SCR #86) = $1.99 OOP, $0.01 profit after rebate
  • Total OOP at the store will be $20.18 ($21.18 if you can't use two circular Q's for Pantene), actual OOP (after rebates) will be $4.70 ($5.70 if you can't use Pantene coupons) and you'll get a $10 RA gift card = $4.29 or $5.29 profit

For SCR #24 (Free Modella Bag and coupons w/$25 purchase)

  • Pantenes from above count towards this deal, so you'd only have to buy:
  • Loreal Revitalift $14.99 and use $3 coupon (7/20 SS) and $3 RA coupon and get back $14.99 (SCR #21) = $6 profit
  • Total OOP at the store will be $8.99, actual OOP (after rebates) will be -$6 and you'll get a handy, dandy, FREE bag!

AND (if you can believe it, there's more!) submit your receipt here for a $20 ebags gift certificate!

Walgreens

*Buy on 8/29 or 8/30 (this week, just wanted to remind you): Chemistry Shampoo $7.99, use $3 coupon (from August ESR booklet - Q expires 8/30) and get $7.99 rebate back (Sept. ESR #5) = $3 profit

  • Gilette Satin Care/Series shaving cream $1.99, use Gilette Q from 8/3 P&G or upcoming 8/31 P&G - buy 2 get $1 RR, buy 3 get $3 RR. My coupons were $1 each, so I'm going to buy 3, use three $1 coupons, pay $3 and get back $3 RR = FREE (thanks dancinmama for the deal!)
  • Cover Girl makeup BOGO sale, should be BOGO coupon coming in 8/31 P&G = FREE
  • Excedrin 24 count $1.99, use $2 Excedrin PM coupon (6/8 or 7/13 SS) or Excedrin Migraine coupon here and get back $1 RR = $1 profit

Below are some of the September monthly deals - these are good from 8/29 - 9/27. If you're not in a rush for any of these items, I'd suggest waiting for a $5 off $20 WAG coupon to buy them.

  • Nivea for Men Body Wash $4.99, use $1 coupon (6/8 RP - expires 8/31/08 or 7/20 SS - expires 9/30/08) and get back $4.99 rebate (Sept. ESR #2) = $1 profit
  • Revlon Nail Color or Nail Care $4.79, use $2 coupons (7/20 or 8/3 SS) and get back $4.79(Sept. ESR #7) = $2 profit
  • Loreal Advanced Revitalift Antiwrinkle Concentrate $16.49, use $3 coupon (7/20 SS) and get back $16.49 (Sept. ESR #3) = $3 profit
  • Visine 0.5 oz ~$3.49 or $3.99, use $2 coupon from Sept. Easy Saver booklet (page 10) and $3 coupon from the All You magazine (found in Walmart checkouts) = FREE or profit, depending on store's policies on overage
  • Walgreens brand Brita filter $6.99, $6.99 ESR = FREE

quick question for ya....under the CVS deals, you have covergirl wetslicks being purchased with coupon and getting a 1.00 profit but you don't say how. Is it going to be free after ECB?

Lisa said...

I was wondering the same thing as amiyrah on the wetslicks. Also is there a limit on these and is this next weeks deal or this week?

Thanks for all your deals you post. They really help me out.

My bad, sorry about that! I just fixed the post. The wetslicks are $5.99 and give back $5.99 ECB, so if you use a coupon, you'll make a profit. The limit is one and the sale starts next week 8/31. Hope this clears everything up! :)
