Drug Store Shopping - My trip 9/27

Posted by Jen Ehrhardt on , ,
Today I figured I'd better run out to CVS and Walgreens to grab some deals while things are still in stock.  Here's what I got...

Vaseline Int. Care Sheer Infusions Lotion $7.99
6 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups - $0.89 each, buy 2 get 1 free = $3.58
- $1.50 Vaseline Int. Care coupon
- (2) BOGO Reese's Cup coupons (savings of $0.89 x 2 = $1.79 total savings)
- $7 ECBs from previous purchases
= grand total of $1.76!!

*Walgreens will only let you use 1 coupon per item.  They consider RR a coupon, so in order to use coupons and RRs you sometimes have to buy a cheap "filler" item such as a pack of gum to get your best deal.

~Transaction 1~
Vaseline Int. Care Sheer Infusions Lotion $6.99
Robitussin DM to-go 2-pack $2.49
Trident gum $1.29
-$1.50 Vaseline Int. Care coupon
-$4 RR from previous purchase
-$5 RR from previous purchase
=Total $0.65
Earned additional $7 and $2.5 in RRs

~Transaction 2~
Oral B 1-2-3 toothbrush $3
Chap stick green tea $2.99
Herbal Essences Hairspray $2.99
-$1 Herbal Essences coupon
-$7 and $1 RR from previous purchases
= Total $1.28
Earned $2, $3 and $3 RRs

~Transaction 3~
Gillette Fusion Razor $8.99
Halls Soothers $1
Dentek Floss $2
Blue Diamond Almonds, 2 packages, $3.49 (BOGO sale)
-$0.75 Blue Diamond coupon
-$4 Gillette Fusion coupon
-$3 and $3 RR from previous purchases
= Total $4.62
Earned $6, $1 and $2 RRs to use later

All in all, I spent under $7 out of pocket at Walgreens and I have about $15 in RRs left to use on next week's sales (I earned $26.50 in these 3 transactions, but I used some of them today also).  I hope this scenario makes sense to everyone and that it's helping you understand the amazing deals you can get at drug stores when you know how to play the game.  I may go back to Walgreen's tomorrow and use my $6 RR to get another bottle of lotion (and another $6 RR!).  I'm a little OCD about lotion so I need to stock up while I can.  I'll probably get some additionals of other items too :)
