Weekly Drug Store Wrap-Up 9/02-9/08

With the pending apocalypse {yes, I’m preparing for the zombies}, I’ve decided to step-up my couponing a bit and to keep me on track, I’m going to share with you guys how I do each week.  I already use coupons for a lot of the things I buy in stores, I’ve always thought of myself as an “everyday couponer” instead of some sort of “extreme couponer”.  While I definitely don’t plan to go to the lengths of EXTREME, I do plan on taking more advantage of some of the better deals that go on each week.

Please note that I will not be snagging every deal every week.  I will only be grabbing those deals that are for items my family will actually use.  Don’t worry, though, I’ll try and share all the deals you can take advantage of, not just the ones I like :)

That being said, it’s the first week of September and while there weren’t any coupon inserts in this past week’s Sunday paper, there were still plenty of deals to be had this week at Walgreens, Rite Aid, and CVS.

Walgreens

As usual, I can almost always find good deals at Walgreens and this week was no different. I was able to stock-up on me and Hubby’s favorite deodorant, my favorite shampoo and conditioner, as well as plenty of mouth wash.

Here Are The Deals I Used:

  • Mitchum Deodorant 1.5-2.7 oz – $3 ea wyb 2 {Buy 2, Get $4 RR}
    * USE $1.50/2 coupon [SS 8/19]

Rite Aid

I rarely shop at Rite Aid {and need to opt out of this new electronic method of rewarding +UP’s – I want my individual paper ones back!}, but was pleasantly surprised with the BETTER-THAN-FREE deals available this week :)   There were quite a few deals for Rite Aid this week, but I didn’t want to take advantage of more than I did.

Here Are The Deals I Used:

    * USE (2) FREE coupon [RP 8/26]
    = $1.24 MM {so make sure you use a filler}, Receive $2 +UP’s = $3.24 MM!!
  • Ban Deodorant – $3.99 {BOGO & Get $5 +UP’s}
    * Buy 2 – NO COUPONS REQUIRED
    = $3.99, Get $5 +UP’s = $1.01 MM!!

CVS

I only took advantage of one deal this week at CVS because I love Schick razors and wanted to add to my ever-growing stock-pile of razors. I gave away a big bag of them a month ago and STILL have a basket full of razors in my linen closet!

Here Is The Deal I Used:

  • Schick Hydro 3 Blast – $9.79 {Get $4 EB}
    * USE $4/1 coupon [SS 8/19]
    = $5.79, Get $4 EB = $1.79

 

All-in-all, I came OOP $22.51 {plus tax which will vary by state} and have $18 in rewards bucks towards next week.  Pretty good if I do say so myself :)   Keep in mind, your scenarios might result in more or less OOP {like using previous rewards bucks towards your OOP}.  For some great scenarios each week from these great drug stores, make sure you keep an eye on The Krazy Coupon Lady!
