Sunday Drugstore Deals

126.10 Subtotal before Savings/Coupons - 123.69 in Savings/Coupons = $2.41 Total Out of Pocket! Savings of 98%!

This week I just went to CVS and Walgreens and skipped Rite Aid because I just didn't see anything that made me want to go the extra few miles to drive there. But, there were some really good deals this week at CVS and Walgreens (<--check out the links for coupon match-ups!). I was mostly excited this week to get the Neutrogena Wave and refill pack and only paid 0.48 cents TOOP! My daughter is starting middle school this year and I have been trying to teach her to wash her face everyday, so I'm hoping this will make it a little more *fun* for her.
CVS Trip
Subtotal 71.85 - 71.13 Savings/Coupons = 0.72 TOOP
Savings of 98%!

*I think the thing that excites me the most this week was that I used 24.68 in CVS ECBs, but I got back 24.99 in ECBs!* Plus, I still had some left from early deals and such, so I now have 32.99 in ECBs!*

 Here's a quick coupon breakdown (please remember, some of the coupons may have already reached their max limit of prints or the promotion is over so you may not be able to find them):
*5 Skintimate Cream Shave on sale for $2.19 each (total of $10.95)
Used 2 $1/1 and 3 $1.50/1 (should have brought total to $4.45, but for some reason one of my $1/1 coupons wouldn't take, so I just told the cashier not to worry about it so my total was $5.45)

*1 Schick Xtreme 3 Disposable Razor on sale for $9.29 (bringing total to $14.74)
Used 1 $3/1 coupon (bringing total to $11.74) 

*3 SoftSoap Pampered Hands Handsoap on sale for $2.00 each (bringing total to $17.74)

Then, I used, $24.68 in ECB's that I had from a previous week, so my total was $0.72. Here's the ECB I received back:
$10 ECB for Skintimate/Schick deal
$6 ECB for Baush & Lomb ReNu deal
$1.99 ECB for Papermate pen deal
$3.00 ECB for Softsoap deal
$2.00 ECB for Bengay deal
$2.00 ECB for Kotex deal
For a total of $24.99 back in ECB!

Subtotal 54.25 - 52.56 Savings/Coupons = 1.69 TOOP
Savings of 97%!

*I was super excited to do the Neutrogena deal! I ended up using some of my RR to buy it knowing I wasn't going to get any back for it, which I try to avoid doing, but since I was still going to have a few RR left, I figured it was still worth it! I used $22.50 in RR today, and I still have $4.50 RR left.*

  1. Great trip! I would love to know how you got the Wave for such a great price... did you use a ton of RR? Thanks!

  2. Hi Jori! I did...The Neutrogena products were BOGO 50% off, so I used a $3 WAVE coupon from the website on the wave, and a $2 WAVE refills coupon. I bought both. The wave was 9.99 and the refills were 6.99. The sale made it 9.99+3.49= 13.48. My manufacturer coupons made it 7.48. So, then I had to grab a few fillers (25 cent laffy taffy, lol, I grabbed 4) and I used a 2, 3, and 4 RR from the week before. This deal is still going on till Sunday am, so you can still get it for a pretty good price even without using RR (7.48). HTH! :)
    Ps...The Neutrogena Wave coupon that was in the July walgreens coupon book wouldn't work on the regular wave...It was only for the next one up and that one is 16.99 regular price. I didn't think that was a very good deal, so I got the 9.99 one.

  3. Thanks so much for the fast reply! I don't have any RR, but have been wanting one of these for a while. Had it not have been for you I wouldn't have even noticed the deal! Thanks again... by the way found you through Southern Savers Friday Finals :)

  4. wow u did an awesome job. i am now a fan of yours on facebook and i became a GFC follower.

  5. Your welcome Jori! I try to get back ASAP, but I seriously have so much on my plate right now. I love doing this blog, but sometimes I wonder if anyone reads it? LOL! So thank you and Jessyca both for posting to it! :) And Jessyca I'm checking you out right now! :)

  6. Oh, and I *try* to notice the deals that sometimes are missed...Like the Neutrogena one. That way I don't have to worry so much about it not being there because it wasn't listed on the major "couponing" sites. Also, I like to get into the practice of handling the ads myself because I've come to the conclusion that sometimes what one blogger may decide is a great deal, I might not always want or need for my family...AKA families are different. For instance, I really have no need for diapers (although I am planning a baby shower in the next 4-6 months, so I will be buying some of this right now) or other baby items. Also, our dog passed away a few months ago, so I no longer need any spectacular dog food deals. But, someone that has a baby and a dog would want to pay attention to those deals! So, I try to shop to my family's needs and wants and not necessarily what other bloggers find to be the best deals! :)
