Walgreen's Coupon - Use it if you dare

Here's a printable coupon for $5 off a $20 purchase at Walgreen's
Good TODAY Thursday 7/31/08 only
Be aware that this coupon requires your total to be $20 or above
after you scan all your manufacturer and Walgreen's Easy Saver coupons
the $5/$20 comes off very last = So you're still spending $15.+ OOP
(I'm late in posting this coupon because I'm really not a big fan of Walgreen's
in my experience their cashiers are ignorant regarding their coupon policies-
I actually had a disabled guy the other day that was banging himself in the head
because he couldn't figure out how to enter an Enfamil formula check- CRAZY!
besides that the manager's are not helpful and
the deals just don't compare to what I find elsewhere at your own risk, it's just not that enjoyable for me)

It's a Hidden Deal on Maybelline Mascara:

the advertised deal is "Buy both Garnier Nutritioniste eye roller ($12.99) and Maybelline Define-a-Lash mascara ($5.99) get $10 ECB" limit 2

it turns out that you don't have to buy the (expensive) eye roller after all. you can...

buy 2 define-a-lash at $5.99
and receive $10 ecb.

if you have $1 off coupons from 4-27-08 RP or tearpads,
♥ free mascara after ecb ♥

A couple more Target Deals

I thought I'd repost this great diaper deal one more time - the coupons expire 7/31/08
Disclaimer: I did this Pampers deal Saturday and told my friend about it. When she went and tried to do the same Pampers deal they told her "your friend was scamming Target."
The coupons are legit. I've done this deal many times as have many others. Just know that the cashiers might give you some grief - I'm finding some are not so happy for us to be getting such great deals. I think they're just jealous!

1 Pampers Jumbo diapers $9.99
1 Pampers Mega wipes $5.99
-$5 WYB 2 Target coupon (
A Full Cup)
-$3 WYB 2 Target coupon (A Full Cup)
-$5 Target GC WYB 2 coupon (A Full Cup)
-$1.50 Pampers diapers MC (7/27 RP)
-$0.50 Pampers wipes MC (7/6 P&G)
Total: $5.98 OOP for both the diapers & wipes
Get a $5.00 gift card for a future purchase

Turn around and do it again, pay $.98 for both diapers and wipes
and still get another $5.00 gift card!

then if you want to get some cheap Quaker Chewy granola bars do this:
buy 2 boxes for $4
use (2) $0.50/1 Target coupons (A Full Cup)
and -$1/2 Quaker Chewy MC (from recent insert)
Total: 2/$2 or $1 each

add in the PB&J from the next post
use your gift card from the Pampers deal
you'll pay NUTHIN' Out of Pocket = SUPER SAVINGS!!!

Cheap PB&J at Target

In the Sunday paper there was a Smucker's Q for
-$.35 off the squeezable fruit spread
It will stack nicely with a $1.00 off Smuckers Target Q
the squeezable bottles should be around $1.69 at the DFW stores
so by stacking they'll be just $.34 cents each

Pair that with the $1.00 off Skippy Target Q (price is $1.89)= $.89 each
and you've got cheap PB&J

Of all the couponing I have done over the years I have to say this was the best Super Savings yet. I paid $11.02 for EVERYTHING in the picture which was less than the original price of the huge package of chicken breast which was on sale for $11.52. Thanks to Albertson's Mega sale giving $5 off 10 qualifying items twice for a total of $10 off and using great manufacturer coupons and catalinas. Here's how I did it:

-(2) $1.00 South Beach Q's
-(2) $3.00 Planter's Q's
-$1.00 Post Cereal Q
-(6) $1.00/2 Powerade Q's
and I got a $2.00 Catalina for buying the South Beach Drink Mix

Transaction #2::
3 Cans Libby G. Beans $1.00 each
5 Cans Olives at $1.00 each
2 Bags Pictsweet frozen vegetables at $1.00 each
3 20 oz Snapple at $1.00 each
1 Canteloupe at $1.50
1 pkg Chicken Breast $11.52
- $5.00 Mega Event Sale
-(3) $.50 Snapple Q's (that doubled to $1.00 each)
- $4.00 catalina from a previous day's purchase
- $2.00 catalina from transaction #1

Random CVS goodies

1. I just got a lovely email from CVS
including a $5/$30 Coupon for this Saturday
Be on the lookout...hopefully you'll get one too!

2. I scored a great deal at my favorite CVS last night
they had bottles of Clorox Ultimate Care bleach
on clearance for $1.15 a bottle,
used a $1 ECB so I got it for $.15 cents

3. Lastly, I scanned my CVS card at the kiosk in the store
and got some GREAT CRT's - I always hold on to them because
you know they'll incorporate them in to some deal in the future!
Remember to scan your card each time you shop

This last transaction was not well thought out, I should know better but, I didn't have my stash of coupons with me. When I found the Tide on clearance I quickly picked up some items to get close to $15.00 to at least use the $3 off Q. In hindsight, I would not have bought the 2 Dasani waters. The cashier also rang up 2 candles when I actually bought 4 glade refills and just 1 candle - I paid a little more because of her mistake. Lastly, I didn't know that one of the refills was on sale...hence it did not generate the $1 ECB that I was expecting. Oh Well - I had a lot of ECB's to use and I got a GREAT SUPER SAVINGS on the Tide!

Total Product Value: $131.96
Total OOP: $7.05
ECB's Used: $23.96
ECB's Earned: $25.00

The Children's Place Clearance Sale

Get a jump on Back to School shopping at The Children's Place.

Here's what Sandra had to say about her Super Savings... "I went to children's place yesterday and they are having a huge sale 50% off the clearance price. I was able to get madeline some jeans for 2 dollars. I bought all three of my kids their back to school shoes and only spent 16 dollars for all three. I would hurry and go before there is nothing left. They have swim suits, t shirts, tanks, shorts, skirts, jeans, all kinds of things. I think you can google a 20% off coupon as well, if not I have one that I can e-mail you. I have been mass printing them everytime I go and they work everytime. I bought everything my kids need for back to school and even spencer and spent less then 200 dollars. I thought that was steal.

Here's a printable coupon for an additional 20% off

The sale ends July 31st.

There were also manufacturer coupons for $1.25 off Huggies Little Swimmers on the 6/22 inserts or you can use the $1.50 off printable here to get Huggies Swimmers for $1.49 a pack.

You can still find great Target printables here for $5.00 off WYB Pampers diapers and Pampers Wipes in the same transaction.
