CVS'ing Like Crazy!

TOTAL PROFIT FOR JANUARY SO FAR: $122.93 Walgreens
  • 3 Garnier stylers (I know, I know...you're thinking, MORE Garnier frugalsuz?!? Well...umm...yup! I got more! lol) $2.99 each, used three $1 coupons (11/9 or 1/4 RP) and $2 coupon in WAG Easy Saver coupon book (scans three times) = $0.60 after tax, paid with gift card

Rite Aid

CVS - kudos to pubbler for this great Stayfree deal! Grr, just realized I had a $2 CVS coupon for Stayfree I could have used today. Sigh.

  • 6 packages Stayfree pads (24 - 48 count) $4.50 each, used three BOGO coupons (1/4 RP) and got back $10 ECB (when you spend $20, Limit 1) = $0.50 for 6 (when you also include $3 off $15 coupon)
  • CVS snack bags $2.99, used $3 CVS brand purchase coupon = FREE *didn't beep - so you can get overage with this coupon!

Take two - rinse and repeat on DBF's card

There are many things in CVS that you may not realize are actually CVS brands. These include Essence of Beauty, Lumene, Skin Effects and I think possibly 24.7 as well. Anyone else know of any others? Here's a great list from Beth (thanks again!)

What newspaper do you get? The q's in my paper stink and the next closest paper usually has the same q's just in a different order. I see by your deals that you get better q's than me and I would like to call your paper and see if they will deliver to me by mail. With the q's of course!

Central,
What a great idea! I wonder if they'll do this for you. Depending on whether I'm in my neck of the woods or my boyfriend's, I buy either the Star Ledger: http://www.nj.com/starledger/ or The Bergen Record: http://www.northjersey.com/. Good luck!
