A Week to Rest 8/9 - 8/15

As always, my deals all come from the wonderful folks at HCW, Slick Deals and Erica at iheartcvs.com, iheartriteaid.com and iheartwags.com.
Office Depot - FREE Tug backpack with minimum $10 purchase. Lots of cheap office/school supplies this week!

Staples - there's a $5 off $50 coupon in the circular too! Buy all the stuff below and you're at $52. :) **UPDATE - thanks Stacy for the update on this. Because of the instant savings, if you buy all the items below, your total will only be around $39 so you'll need to get another $11 worth of stuff to get to $50 so you can use the coupon. Rats!
  • Casio Handheld Label Maker $19.99, $5 instant savings (basically a sale) and get back $15 Easy Rebate (Limit 1) = FREE *If you bought this before, go ahead and buy it again. This is a different rebate.

CVS - there's a printable coupon for $5 off $25 on cvs.com. Click on the Rx quiz, complete the quiz (doesn't matter if you answer everything correctly) and then you'll be able to print the coupon. Folks are saying it starts 8/10 even though it doesn't specifically say that and will beep if you use it beforehand. You can also ask the Pharmacists for info about the Ready Fill program and they should give you a booklet with coupons. I think there's a $4 off $20 coupon in the booklet.

The Sharpie coupon is great! I plan to get a ton of these - DF goes through highlighters like you would not believe!

Sarah,
That's great :)

pubbler,
Thanks, I thought there was something I was missing with Reach. I'll update the post.

Precious,
I definitely will.

pubbler,
Wait a tick, how is that free? You'd buy three items at $3 each, so $9. Then if you used a $3 coupon, that's $6 but you only get back $3 RR. If you used the $5 coupon and got back the $3, you're still paying for the items. What am I missing here?

Thanks for the Staples scenarios - I printed it out and followed it to the letter. Only when I got to the register it totaled $39.02. I had to buy a couple things to make up the $10.98 difference to use the $5/$50 coupon. I'm new to this, so I am thankful for your help!

stacy,
Oh, I wasn't sure how the totals would work with those "instant savings" things. Thanks for the head's up on that!
