Boatload of Stuff

Some FYI stuff - I updated my weekly deal post with a fabulous deal on Huggies diapers at RA. Also, check your CVS CRT's for a $2.50 off $10 pain reliever coupon - it will be great with the Tylenol deal this week. Thanks pubbler for the head's up on that one! Finally, all the school supplies at CVS are on sale until Tuesday only. After that, no EB's. CVS - my card
  • Paper Mate Grip Pens (8 ct) $0.99, got back $0.99 EB (Limit 3) = FREE
  • 2 Caliber or CVS School Glues (5 oz) $0.99 each, got back $1.98 EB (Limit 2) = FREE
  • Caliber or It's Academic 5" Pointed or Blunt Tip Scissors $2.99, got back $2.99 EB (Limit 2) = FREE
  • Used $0.99 EB (this one beeped - it was from the CVS pantiliner deal last week should have only been $0.89 - they forced it through), $1 EB, $1 EB and $1.98 EB, total was $1.06

CVS - DBF's card

  • 2 Caliber or CVS 1 Subject Notebooks (70-80 sheets) $0.99 each, got back $1.98 EB (Limit 2) = FREE

  • Used $1 EB, $2.97 EB and $10 EB, total was $0.98

I hadn't really planned on buying all these school supplies, other than the pens which I'll use. But my mom told me that they are doing a school supply drive at her office, so I'll give her the goodies to donate.


  • 2 Staples Photo Printer paper $9.99 each, will submit for Easy Rebate for $8.99 each (Limit 2) = $2 or $1 each
  • Staples Copy Paper $3.69, will submit for Easy Rebate for $3.68 (Limit 2) = $0.01 *Rebate is only valid until 7/15
  • Used $5 off $20 coupon (from front page of circular - wonder if you can print this one?), total was $19.98, overall profit $1.68 (after tax)

Rinse and repeated later on - will do rebate in DBF's name

A&P - triple coupons baby! I bought all this stuff over several transactions
  • 7 Finesse sham/cond $1.49 each, used seven $0.75 coupons (5/17 SS *tripled fully) = $5.32 profit or $0.76 profit on each

  • 8 Huggies wipes $2.99 each, used eight $0.75 coupons (6/21 SS, *was hoping the second one would be cheaper as mentioned on HCW, but no dice) = $5.92 or $0.74 each
  • Milk $1.99
  • Got $4.10 as employee discount, total OOP overall was $3.64

Wow, awesome deals! I'm loving CVS this month. thanks also for posting the Staples scenario. Now I know how to best use the 5/25 Q.
We found a store in MI that's tripling this week too, so we'll get some similar deals to yours. I'm so happy we're finally getting triples.

if you have any huggies coupons left, try to get the small packs that are on sale for 2.00. If you go through self checkout, you can get overage :o)

Also, thanks for posting the diaper deal. When I asked you to start doing that last week or so, I thought I made you mad, since you didn't respond. We mamas really do appreciate it!

BTW, have you entered my 50.00 contest yet? Hmmmm? lol

ooh! one more thing! the luigi's italian ices are giving overage as well, so hop to on those! I used some of the overage to get wild alaska salmon on manager's special today.

My A & P is on to me, no more overage :(

Ooh, have fun with triples!

Thanks for the tips, but I'm out of Huggies coupons and I've never really liked Italian Ices. I just can't get into them for whatever reason. Plus my freezer is packed already!

I've had a ton of stuff going on and I forgot to post the Huggies deal last week. Its better this week anyway.

That stinks. The A&P closest to my apartment has self checkouts where the cashiers don't have to approve your coupons, so I usually save the overage items for this store.
