CVS and Walgreens Deals

First up was CVS. I love when the coupon box spits out bonus coupons...

CVS and Walgreens


Our first stop of the morning was CVS. Jonah and I impressed our cashier Joyce with our massive savings...
  • Pampers Jumbo Pack: $8.99. I thought these were the ones to get $2ECBs, but apparently that was only certain sizes? I'm not really sure... Used $2/1 (P&G mailer) = paid $6.99.
  • 2 Kleenex (200 ct.): 3/$4, or $1.33 each. Used $0.50/2 (April All You) = paid $2.17/2. Not the best price, but we were all out.
  • 5 Fuze Juice: 5/$5, get $2ECBs when you buy 5. Used two $1/2 (SS 4/10/11) = paid $3/5, got $2ECBs!

  • Crest Kids toothpaste: $1.99, get $1ECBs. Used $1/1 (P&G mailer) = paid $0.99, got $1ECBs!
  • Preparation H wipes: $3.99, get $3.99ECBs. (Sorry, Mankato friends, I took the last one at the Madison store). Used $2/1 printable = paid $1.99, got $3.99ECBs!

  • Used $5/$25 from my email, and $7ECBs from previous purchases.
  • Total spent: $4.82, and I got $7.99ECBs!
Jonah and I continued our shopping at Walgreens. There weren't a ton of deals that I was interested in, but there were a few sales on items on our weekly grocery list.
  • Huggies Wipes (216 ct.): $5.99 each. Used $2/1 (Walgreens Infant - took off $4), $0.75/1 (Huggies mailer), and $0.50/1 (SS 5/15/11) = paid $6.73/2!

Walgreens, CVS, and Target - Diapers and Candy!

Our first stop of the day was Walgreens. I picked size 4 diapers for this stop because I knew there was a diaper sale at CVS too, and I was going to get size 1 diapers there. Unfortunately, they don't sell the big boxes of size 1's at CVS, so I had to get more size 4's there. So Jonah is definitely stocked on diapers for our Colorado trip next month.
  • 2 Huggies Jumbo Packs: 2/$18, get $3RR. Used $3/1 printable and $2/1 printable (no longer available) = paid $13, got $3RR!
  • 2 Hershey's Bliss: 2/$6. Used $1/2 (May Walgreens) and $1/1 (SS 5/1/11) = paid $4/2.
  • 6 Snickers Peanut Butter Squared: $0.39 each (limit 6). Used two B2G1 free (insert, not sure which one) = paid $1.56/6, or $0.26 each!
  • Used $4RR from last time. Spent $15.18 and got $3RR for next time!

Next was CVS, for more diapers and candy! Did you know you can swipe your Extra Care card more than once per trip and get more coupons? I found that out this week, so I tried it. I got a diapers coupon and a healthcare items coupon the first time, and two candy coupons the second time. The third time it told me no more coupons available, so definitely keep swiping until you get that message.
  • Huggies Box: $19.00 and Huggies Wipes Refill: $6.00. Get $5ECBs when you spend $25 or more. Used $3.50/1 diapers printable, $0.50/1 wipes (SS 5/15/11), and $4/1 diapers and wipes CVS coupon box = paid $17, got $5ECBs!
  • Speed Stick deoderant: $2.99, get $2ECBs. Used $0.50/1 (SS 5/1/11) = paid $2.49, got $2ECBs!
  • 2 Hershey's Pieces: 2/$6. Used $2/2 (SS 5/1/11) and $2/1 CVS coupon box = paid $2/2!
  • 3 M&Ms: on clearance for $0.56 each!
  • Used $9.77 ECBs from last time. Paid $14.63, got $7ECBs back!
And finally, we went to Target to kill a bit of time before dropping some stuff off at the thrift store. That's what happens when your kids get up at 6am - you have to wait for some places to be open. I was really excited to stock up on Seattle's Best Coffee, which I could have gotten for $3.49/package with my coupons (as opposed to over $8 for my Millstone, my absolute favorite brand, but this is a close second). And then I was disappointed because our Target doesn't carry it. Sad.
  • Propel Zero 6-pack: $3.29. Used $1/1 printable (no longer available) = paid $2.29, or $0.38/bottle!
  • 2 Vitamin C drops: $2.69 each. Used two $0.75/1 (SS 3/27/11) and two $0.50/1 Target printables = paid $1.19 each!
  • 2 Up & Up dryer sheets (40 ct.): $1.37 each. Used two $0.50/1 Target printables = paid $0.87 each!
  • 2 Up & Up panty liners (22 ct.): $0.89 each. Used two $0.75/1 Target printables = paid $0.14 each!
  • 2 Glade Spring Collection candles: $2.99 each. Used $2/2 printable and two $1/1 Target printables = paid $0.99 each!
  • Tide travel detergent: $0.97. Used $1/1 (P&G mailer) = free!
  • Toy microphone: 2.99. This is a prop for my matron of honor speech for my sister's wedding next month.
  • Total spent: $13.70.
