Light Week 1/10 - 1/16

(did I say light?) What I meant to say was, it started out as light but everyday, it seems there's another deal popping up to contradict my title. Its a conspiracy I tell you!

As always, my deals all come from the wonderful folks at HCW, Slick Deals and Erica at, and

  • CVS Green Tag and/or CVS Reusable Bags - buy two and get back $1 EB (Limit 1). If you don't have a green tag, you get back $1 EB for every four times you use it, so it pays for itself pretty quickly.

Bonus Packs - They can usually be found in a promo aisle somewhere in the store. The deals are good until 2/14. Here's a list of all qualifying items.

  • Glade Fabric & Air Spray $3.99, get back $3 EB (Limit 6) - also qualifies for $5 SC Johnson rebate (WYB 3, Limit 3 offers per household) = $2.03 profit for every three bottles you buy. I bought UPC 0 46500 70475 8 and I was able to use bottles from the regular air freshener aisle. *Be sure to buy no more than three bottles at once. Although you can do the SC Johnson rebate three times, you have to submit each rebate separately.

There is an J&J rebate available on for $10 when you spend $30 on any Ambi, Aveeno, Clean & Clear, Purpose, Lubriderm or RoC products. You have to buy products from at least two brands and trial sizes and cleansing bars don't count. Aveeno, Clean & Clear, Lubriderm and RoC are all BOGO 50% off this week. The receipt will list the second item as the 50% off price, so you have to be sure you have $30 worth in total, including sale prices. Here are some items that are on sale with coupons available:

Hopefully there will be a way to make this deal a moneymaker. I'm going to go for it to use up some RR's.

  • Triaminic Thin Strips $5, buy two and use two $3 coupons (12/6 SS) and get back $5 RR (WYB 2) = $1 profit
  • Thermacare Heat Wrap Arm/Neck Single (trial size) $2.49, use $1 coupon and get back $2.50 RR = $1 profit or FREE without coupon

Walgreens Month Long Deals 12/27 - 1/30

  • Bayer Breeze 2 Blood Glucose Meter $14.99, use freebie coupon (10/25 RP) and get back $5 RR = $5 profit
  • Bayer Contour Blood Glucose Meter $14.99, use freebie coupon (10/25 RP) and get back $5 RR = $5 profit *Don't buy the meter in the green box or the one with a free attached ac1 (whatever that is) - they won't print the RR's

*Its reported that if you buy these both together, you'll get the $5 RR for each plus a $3 RR for buying 2 Bayer items = $13 profit overall. Or if you add on a third qualifying item, you'll get back $6 RR for buying three items.

  • Bayer Quick Release Crystals (20 ct.) $4.19 each (clearance price on iheartwags, YMMV), buy three and use three $1.50 coupons (10/25 RP) and get back $6 RR (WYB 3) = $2.07 *But may be a moneymaker when combined with buying the meters
  • Neosporin Lip Health $4, buy two and use two $3 coupons and get back $3 RR (WYB 2) = $1 profit
  • Pepsi/Tostitos - spend $20, get back $10 RR. Wait until the week of 1/17 when they'll be on sale. Combine with the Coors rebates below...

General Printable Rebate Offers

These rebates will be awesome when combined with Walgreen's month-long sale on Tostitos and Pepsi items (spend $20, get back $10 RR). Its even better during the week of 1/17 when the qualifying items will be on sale. I can't wait!

Don't forget to use the $2/10 Soyjoy Qs (SS 1/3) when purchasing 2 boxes.

Oh that's right, thanks!

Couponing Grad Student said...

For the SC Johnson rebate, can you really submit it for the Oust? On the top of the rebate page it says including these products, but one the directions to receive the rebate it says any of the products mentioned above, and Oust isn't mentioned. Do you think it will work?

frugalsuz said...

Couponing GS - a couple of my online buddies have called SC Johnson and they've confirmed that you can use ANY SC Johnson product towards the rebate. Cool huh?

Jennifer said...

the link for "J&J Spend $30..." takes you to a page. is that were the rebate form is located?

frugalsuz said...

Yup, that's correct. Its usually on one of the later pages of coupons.

mb said...

Can we use the Coors Light PDF print out or do we need to find the actual rebate form??

Gina said...

I looked at the rebate form for the coor/tostitos/pepsi. I live in CT and the form you have posted said no beer purchase required, but the form says you have to buy the beer. EWWW. Do you know the story?

frugalsuz said...

Yup, you can use the printable, isn't that great?

Are you looking at the right rebate? There are four separate ones on that link. You have to scroll down for each separate one.

I made the mistake of buying all 6 cans of oust at once and using the BOGO coupons, only $9eb printed out. The manager was nice enough to print out the other $9 when I showed her what happened : ) I guess these need to be purchased no more that three at the time, even tho the limits have changed.
