Return of the Free Bags at Staples! 7/25 - 7/31

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

The Walgreens circular is advertising yet another Olay rebate (keep 'em coming Olay!) for $20 when you buy $50 of Olay Regenerist items. Woot!

Staples - buy any backpack, get the full price back in the form of a Staples Reward Gift Card = FREE Last year I did this deal twice (my card and DBF's card) and was able to get tote bags instead of backpacks. Tote bags are pictured in the online ad so I think I'm good to go! You have to have a Staples Rewards card (free to sign up - can do in store or I think online) and you submit your receipt info to their rebate website. That was easy!


  • U by Kotex $4.99, use $1 coupon and/or $1.50 CVS coupon (from Reinventing Beauty magazine found at CVS) and get back $4.99 EB (Limit 1) = $2.50 - $1 profit
  • Kodak Photobook $7.99, get back $7.99 EB (Limit 1) = FREE

CVS Monthly Deals - valid until 7/31

  • Bausch & Lomb Biotrue Multi-Purpose Solution (2 oz) $2.99, use $2 coupon and get back $2.99 EB (Limit 2) = $2 profit
  • John Frieda Root Awakening Sham/Cond/Stylers $5, buy two, use two $3 coupons (6/6 SS) and get back $5 EB (WYB 2, Limit 3 - but only buy two at a time to get your EB's) = $1 profit
  • CVS Pantiliners (22 count) $0.50, buy two and get back $1 EB (Limit 3 - but only buy two at a time, buying more may mean you don't get the right amount of EB's) = FREE
  • Milk Deal - buy 5 gallons, get one free (Limit 3) Valid until 7/24. Void in CT, LA, MA, PA, and WI.

Rite Aid - this week starts the August SCR's. Here's a $5 off $25 coupon good until 9/25. You can also print one on Redplum. SCR #556 is for Oral Care Products. When you spend $15, you get a $5 RA gift card or when you spend $25, you get a $10 RA gift card. You must use your Wellness Card with purchases. If included, the free/almost free items below are a great way to get started.

With all the varying limits on UP Reward items, I thought it would be helpful to report what's working for multiple rewards. "Multiple/No Stacking" = you can do the deal multiple times but you have to buy each item individually. "Multiple/Stacking" = you can do the deal multiple times AND buy more than one item at once. You'll get double (or triple or quadruple) the rewards on your receipt.

  • Colgate Total Advanced Toothpaste (4 oz) or Sensitive Toothpaste (6 oz) $3, use $1 coupon (7/11 SS) and get back $3 UP Reward = $1 profit Multiple/No Stacking
  • RA Brand/Office Expert Invisible Tape (3 pack) $3.49, BOGO sale, buy two and use $1 RA coupon (sorry, don't have a direct link) and get back $3 (SCR #129, WYB 2) = $0.51 profit
  • Listerine Pocket Paks or Reach Toothbrush $3.99, get back $1 UP Reward and $2.99 (SCR #80) = FREE/$0.01 profit Or use $1 coupon on Reach for $1 profit (FYI this coupon beeps) Multiple/Stacking
  • Nivea for Men Body Wash $1.99, use $1 coupon (7/25 RP) and get back $1 UP Reward = FREE/$0.01 profit Multiple/Stacking
  • Stride Gum BOGO sale, use BOGO coupon (5/16 SS) and $0.50 RA coupon for Stride Shift Gum = $0.50 - $1 profit depending on whether your store will let you use one or two RA coupons **Many are reporting that the Shift gum isn't ringing up BOGO
  • Rembrandt Toothpaste $5.49, use $3 coupon and get back $2 UP Rewards = $0.49 Multiple/Stacking
  • Arm & Hammer Spinbrush Pro Toothbrush $4.99, use $2 coupon and get back $1.99 UP Rewards = $1 Multiple/Stacking

Walgreens - nothing much yet, more cheap school supplies but no freebies.

Walgreens Monthly Deals - valid until 7/31

  • Celsius Green Tea (4 pack, 12 oz) $4.99 (your price may vary), use $3 coupon (4/25 SS) or $2 coupon and get back $3 RR = $1.01 profit - FREE

I sometimes have problems at RA using a manufacturers coupon, an in-ad coupon, and a Rite Aid coupon, so I decided to email RA customer service and they emailed me back confirming that we CAN use all three. So I printed this email and now plan on keeping it with me whenever I shop at RA. Just an idea I thought I'd share for anyone else having problems using all these coupons.
