Sunday, June 29, 2008


Thanks Erika for pointing this one out to me!!! I'm going tomorrow, we tried tonight but the pharmacy was closed! :o(

There is going to be an awesome deal coming up at Walgreens for the week of June 29th that will get you free Walgreens brand diapers.

On June 29 the new sales ad will start. Walgreens brand Jumbo packages of diapers (both the white and red packages) will be on sale for $5.99 each. In the July Easysaver booklet there will be a coupon in there for $5 off 2 packages of Walgreens diapers. This coupon will automatically
adjust itself and give you 2.50 each package you buy. This booklet will be available in stores starting June 27th.

You also need to go to the pharmacy and ask for a $50 Walgreens savings booklet. These booklets are free to anyone who asks about the newprescription savings plan. You don't have to buy the savings plan justask about it and get the booklet. Many employees don't know where the
booklets are so insist that someone who does know get one for you. They are a white and red booklet that is folded over 3 times and contains various Walgreens coupons for their store brand items. One of the coupons inside that book is for $2 off one package of Walgreens brand
diapers. This coupon automatically scans for $2 off each package you buy.

Both of the above coupons are Walgreens store coupons. You can combine them for the same purchase. All you have to do is present them to the cashier and they both scan fine. Also since both are store coupons the cashier will not need them for their drawer like a regular coupon. She
scans them and you can keep them for future purchases. So hang on to them both! Even though they may say limit one they scan and give you the adjusted amount off for each package you buy.

During the entire month from June 27th until July 28th Walgreens has another deal where you buy any 3 listed products (this deal is advertised in the Easysaver coupon & rebate booklet) you will get a $5 Register Reward Coupon for anything on your next purchase. Walgreens
Jumbo diapers are one of the qualifying products.

So this is how to maximize the deal and get FREE Diapers! Remember for the week of June 29th!

Buy three packages of Walgreens brand Jumbo diapers (white or red package) for $5.99 each on sale. Your total will be $17.97. Give the cashier your Easysaver coupon in the Easysaver booklet for $5 off when you buy two packages. Remember this will give you 2.50 off each package for a total off of $7.50 Your total now will be $10.47. Now give the cashier your $2 coupon that is inside the Pharmacy coupon booklet. This will give you $6 off total. Now your total will be $4.47

You need to pay the $4.47. After you pay you will recieve a coupon from the coupon machine next to the register for $5 off your next purchase of almost anything. This makes the diapers FREE in essence.

This deal is unlimited! But there are a few tricks to get the mostout of it. Do not buy more than 3 packages in one transaction. If you buy 6 packages you will not recieve two $5 Register coupons. So only buy 3 at a time.

Remember to keep your two coupons for each additional purchase you make. The cashiers do not need to keep them since they are store coupons and the register automatically keeps track of how many are used.

When you get your $5 Register coupon DO NOT use it to help pay for your second transaction of more diapers. This will void out you getting another $5 coupon. The only way to get a $5 register coupon for each transaction is to pay with cash, debit, credit or giftcard. Just save all your register coupons.

The pharmacy coupon booklets are available now. So if you want to get that early go ahead. The July Easysaver booklet that has the $5 diaper coupon will not be available until June 27th. The sale price does not start until June 29th. So get yourself together and ready to do this deal for the week of June 29th.

CVS June 9th

I have been without a car for over a week and am LOSING MY MIND! Just ran a quick CVS run to at least go get the weekly flyer since it wasn't in my paper yesterday. Of course when I got there, yup no flyers left LOL! I was surprised to see that they had 3 Papers and 1 set of inserts left from yesterday!! Mental Note...check that next time I go in before I complete my purchases. I bought these (3, plus 1 free set of inserts that were at the bottom) and had to blow ecbs on them since they wouldn't just give them to me. Yes, I did try to get them to just give me the inserts, didn't work! But that's okay, I made out a ton for my next trip this week with LOTS of Dove, Nivea and General Mills qps! Definitely not a loss, but I really like, uh LOVE free!

So here was my quick trip tonight... These were on one of my four cards. Nivea is limit 4 per card so I can still do this 3 more times on this card and another 15 times if I were crazy! LOL Definitely do NOT need that much shaving cream, HA!

4 Nivea Shaving Gels (limit 2/card) $10.36 (used $4/2 qp, $1 qp)

CVS June 1st

So-So trip last night to CVS. I only did two of the four cards and had 2 transactions on each, too busy to figure out scenarios this weekend but I think I did okay on a whim!

Trans.2: Pampers Wipes 2.99x2 $5.98 (use $2 off 2qp)
Gillette Fusion Razor $9.99 (use $4 off qp)
Subtotal after man qps $15.97
(5.00) $5 off $15 CVS qp)
(3.49) ecbs from previous transaction
TOTAL $1.60 oop (used my giftcard for transferring a prescription today so really nothing out of pocket!) EARNED $5, $4 ecbs for next week (Pampers and Fusion limit1 of each per card) **lost a couple ecbs on this one but needed diapers and didn't have time to plan the scenarios out!**

Card #2 (Burned about $7.47 on this card, ugh!)
Trans.1: Dawn Dishsoap x2 $2.00 (used $.25, $.25 qps)
Bounty PTowels 5.99x2 $11.98 (used $.25, $.25 qps)

Gillette Fusion $9.99 (used $4 qp)
Subtotal after man. qps $19.97
(5.00) $5 off $15 CVS qp
(8.49) ecbs
TOTAL $6.47oop EARNED $10 Bounty/Charmin, $4 Fusion (used my gc again and although the oop was $6.94, I earned back $14 for next week

So all in all, I blew a few bucks since the diapers weren't the best deal and I didn't work out my scenarios in advance, I literally was working as I was walking through the busy store! I wasn't going to have the car this week since it's in the shop so I desperately ran out to do my cvsing before my $11.47 ecbs and $5off$15 expired. I learned a lesson...plan to a tee! Hubby still thinks I got a great deal if you think in terms of 11 bucks for all that stuff plus ecbs for next time, but you real cvs'rs know better! lol Thank goodness for the giftcard but I still don't feel like I did that great! Maybe I'll try to work some scenarios for my other two cards for next Saturday, I'm a little bummed and am not in the CVS mood right now! :o)

What were your scenarios this week?
