Drugstore Deals

This is a tricky week, in a good way, as the monthly sales are ending and starting in addition to new weekly deals. At Walgreens, you can use both the April and May EasySaver deals until tomorrow, 4/28. At CVS, the May deals will start on the 1st, so you can wrap up your April deals this week.

Here are some high points:
Con-Agra foods, buy $10, get a $5 rebate (May)
* I bought
–2 Orville Redenbacker popcorns for $5
— 3 Hunt’s Snack-Pack pudding 4 packs for $3
— 4 cans Butterball chicken broth for $2

Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil is on sale 4 for $3. I am waiting on some coupon trades to arrive in the mail early this week for $.55 of each, making them 20 cents per roll.

April Deal ending this week — free after rebate on Colgate 360 toothbrush + $1/off coupon in today’s paper = $1 profit

The Softsoap deal has changed up a bit — a bigger size and price, still free after ECB. There is a dollar coupon in today’s paper, making for a $1 profit.

All (brand) detergents are buy one, get one. I am stocked up on detergent, but I peeked at the shelf anyway. The Small & Mighty free and clear had a tag for $1.59 (normal price is 6.49). That can’t be right, I thought, but I stuck two in my basket. I had a $1/off coupon, too! I had the checker verify the price before she started scanning, and sure enough, on clearance for $1.59 minus my $1 coupon. Now, I did not get the second one free. Sure, I could have complained and had her fix that, but I felt like it was a good deal — 4 cents / load, compared to my price point of 13 cents/load. If any are left tomorrow, I’ll get two more and see if they’ll honor the buy one get one since I don’t have another coupon.

The CVS generic of Neosporin with pain-relief is on for buy two (3.99 each) get $5 in ECB. I need one for my purse now that skinned knee season is upon us, so I bought those and got my ECB.

I’ve found two sites really helpful in planning ahead and getting ideas for savings:
Hot Coupon World and Slick Deals (forum). Check those out. For next week, I’ll gather some links to my favorite frugal bloggers.
