Shave a Few Bucks off The Price Please

Yet another reason I love Sheila's blog - she posts the best deals!  I haven't had a chance to keep up with Slick Deals this week, so its great to check in with her blog to find the best stuff.  Here's what I got at CVS today -

  • Gillette Fusion Cartridges (4 ct) $15.49, used $2 cartridges CRT (got this last week)
  • Gillette ProGlide Razor $9.99, used FREE razor coupon (WYB cartridges, 6/3 P&G, cashier took off $10.99), got back $4 EB (Limit 1)
  • Gillette Fusion Shave Prep $2.49, used $1 coupon (6/3 P&G) - thought this was around $5
  • pur-Absorb Supplement $15.99 (raincheck price), got back $16 EB (raincheck) = FREE 
  • Nexxus Shampoo $3.59, used $3 Nexxus CRT (off sham/cond) = $0.59
  • Plastic Bin $1
  • Used $4/$20 coupon, $10/$30 Gillette CRT (this went thru even though I didn't spend $30) and $15 EB, total was $4.99, final cost for everything (including tax) = FREE!

I bought the pur-Absorb, Nexxus and plastic bin so that I'd have an additional $20 in purchases above and beyond the $30 Gillette stuff.  Last week when I tried to use a $4/$20 along with a coupon that required an additional $10 purchase, it beeped.  I guess when you use these kind of coupons in combination, you have to spend enough to satisfy both - is that right?  I haven't had any X off X coupons in so long, I've forgotten the rules!

If I hadn't purchased the non-Gillette stuff, it would have cost me about $5 (before tax) and then after the $4 EB for the razor - about $1.  You can't beat that!  Da boyfriend loves Gillette and the deals on them have become pretty scarce.

I had to scan my CVS card three times before I got the $10/$30 Gillette CRT so don't give up.  I got a great bunch of CRT's - $4 off $20 beauty purchase, $2 off two Tresemme hair care (use on the trial size bottles at $0.99 each, I couldn't find any at this store), $3 off $10 CVS brand purchase, $7 off Physician's Formula makeup and $15 off Physician's Formula skincare.  What a great haul!

where are you getting your 4/20 coupons? thanks

I've been buying them on ebay. There's a seller called tylam2000 that sells them for really cheap and they don't beep! Plus once you purchase them, you get an email right away with the links to the coupons. Print and you're ready to shop!

Awww, you are too kind. All I can say is that I learn from the best. You really had me fooled with that title - I thought you got baited back to RA ;)

haha, I thought about it! I was looking at what you've bought at RA this week and then I just went - naaaaaah and headed off to CVS. lol
