*FYI from iheartwags: "this coupon says "Save $1 on any featured SoftSheen-Carson product" but it doesn't picture "Roots of Nature" even though you have to click on "Special Savings from Roots of Nature" to get to it. so although it looks like the manufacturer is encouraging us to use this on "roots of nature" products, your cashier may not allow it. you may want to print the page this link goes to showing "roots of nature" and the coupon so that you can show it to the cashier if needed."

Hi, Suzanne! I linked to your blog from mine this morning, and there is another link in tomorrow's post. Thanks!

frugalsuz said...

Cool, I'll check out the post. :)

Pubbler said...

FREE Reach toothbrush at WAGS. t/brush is 99c (7 day Q), use $1 Q (RP 4/26).

Precious said...

I ams sure that CVS and Walgreens watch each other all the time. :-)

Rebecca said...

Wasn't there a Coke deal as well?

frugalsuz said...

Ooh, good catch, thanks!

I'm sure they do too. And I think the manufacturer's have a huge part in determining what's on sale too, so this was probably Bayer's decision anyway. Its just funny when two stores have the same exact sales!

I don't see anything, do you know which store? Are you thinking of CVS's sale on Coke THIS week?

Together We Save said...

Thanks for the info. I need to start planning my shopping trip.

Stephanie said...

Schick razor deal??

frugalsuz said...

Sheesh, Steph, getting a little demanding are we? lol I didn't list it b/c I don't like to pay for razors, but I'll post it for ya.

Stephanie said...

LOL! Well I like to print out your lists for CVS and take them with me!! Oh and I'm one of those lucky ones who got a $5/$30 emailed from cvs so that should take care of any oop I would have to pay on the razors : )

Thanks for all that you do!

frugalsuz said...

Ok, flatter me and all is forgiven. Smart, smart woman! :)

Tshanina said...

Have you tried the Walgreens Dr. Scholls coupon yet?

frugalsuz said...

I didn't get those coupons in my paper so I ordered some off ebay. I'm just waiting for them to arrive.

Stephanie said...

Just wanted to share!

I was at CVS and bought:

2 schick quattro razors and 2 schick trimmers @ $8.99 each = $35.96
1 Kellogs corn pops = $2
Total was $37.96 + $1.10 tax= $39.06

-$16 razor coupons (-$4 x4)
-$1 cereal coupon
-$5/30 cvs coupon
-$15 ebs

= $2.06 oop & $16 ebs to use next week : )

frugalsuz said...

Great job! Its so satisfying to get deals on things you really need or want. I wish the deal had been on men's razors, my dad just told me he really likes a Schick razor I gave him ages ago. Hopefully they'll be a sale on those soon.

Stephanie said...

Thanks! It really is : )

Ya know, those four razors were ALL they had out and I was literally the first customer there??? Do they hold some back or just put a certain number out all week or what?

frugalsuz said...

Its really hard to say because it depends so much on your store. Some stores will only put a couple out at a time, some stores really just haven't had a chance to put out stock yet, some stores just don't get much stock and some stores are cleaned out by folks who got there before you did. Don't forget you can always get a raincheck if they were out. And now the cashiers can manually print your EB's for you later on. Yay!

Stephanie said...

Good to know : )
