The back-to-school sales remain in full swing this week with tons of deals on school supplies, including some penny deals. Read on for a store-by-store breakdown of the very best deals.
All three drugstores have free items this week, but Walgreens is the most generous with five free items after coupons and rewards plus very cheap M&Ms and a great deal on Cottonelle toilet paper. At Rite Aid, there's free Carefree pantiliners and a great deal on Listerine Smart Rinse and Scope. At CVS, there's a mystery freebie from the coupon machine, along with free Finesse shampoo and Gatorade and a killer Huggies diaper deal. And finally, Kroger has $2.89 a gallon milk, the cheapest price I know of, and 18-cent Dial soap and 39-cent Suave shampoos and conditioners. And if you don't have your school supplies yet, there are deals on those at all four stores. Read on for a store-by-store breakdown.
There are some really great deals this week at the drugstores and Kroger. Some of the freebies I spotted:
- FREE deodorant at Rite Aid.
- FREE lotion, mouthwash, toothbrushes and crayons at Walgreens.
- Free toothpaste at Kroger.
There's also a hot deal on diapers at CVS where Pampers are just $3.99 after rewards and coupons. And, of course, there are tons of school supplies deals.
Read on for all the deals that jumped out at me. Please leave me your comments on the bargains you discover on your shopping rounds.
It's a fantastic week for deals at the drugstores with plenty of freebies and bargain-priced items. There's free chocolate, a free razor and 49-cent specialty toothpaste at CVS. At Rite Aid, there's bargain-priced Pampers, free toothbrushes and cheap Dawn dish liquid. Walgreens has got seven freebies, including free Crayola Washable Markers and Goody hair clips. I'd go early because they will sell out.
At Kroger, rotisserie chickens are just $3.99 each, a fantasic deal. And that doesn't even count the money you'll save by keeping your oven turned off in this heat.
Kroger also has the best price I could find on milk: $1.66 for a half-gallon or $3.32 a gallon.
Read on for all the deals and give me a shout if you found a good deal I missed.
Lots of CVS shoppers are reporting that the drugstore's coupon machine is printing out a $2/2 coupon on shampoo, conditioner and styling products this week.
There are lots of possibilities for this coupon. Since it's a store coupon, you can stack it with two manufacturer's coupons to make yourself a better deal on a favorite brand.
If you're interested in scoring a couple of freebies, check the travel section for trial size shampoo or conditioner.
Or you can pick up two full-size bottles of VO5, which is on sale this week for 82 cents each.
Even if you don't care for VO5 products, consider purchasing it for donation to your favorite charity.
Who can resist a 1-cent sale? That's what the back-to-school retailers are hoping.
It makes for smart marketing, but not necessarily smart shopping. So be careful out there and read the fine print.
Here are my favorite school-supplies deals for the week with the fine print in bold to help you out:
Each of the drugstores has some excellent deals this week, including free pens and toothbrushes, along with cheap toothpaste, feminine products and hand soap. But Walgreens probably has the best deals among the drugstores this week, with free Irish Spring deodorant, free hair Scuncis and free tampons, along with bargain M&Ms and 39-cent Sharpie markers.
At Kroger this week, there's a terrific deal on General Mills cereal that gives you $6 off your order instantly when you buy four boxes. Match that with coupons and you get yourself some Cheerios for as low as 49 cents a box.
Kroger also has a 10 for $10 sale that includes store-brand pasta sauce, Crest, frozen veggies and many other items. After coupons, the Softsoap hand soap ends up being just 30 cents. (And remember, you don't have to buy 10 items to get the deal!)
Read on for all the deals. And as always, please post the bargains you find.
It's not a blockbuster week for deals this time around, but there are still a few opportunities for free items and a great week to pick up some great bargains on school supplies. Walgreens has 9-cent folders and mini highlighters and 19-cent packs of pencils. Target has free scotch tape.
At Kroger, the Mega Event continues with great prices on Pepsi 2-liters and Steamfresh veggies. It also has Hillshire Farm lunchmeat for 30 cents after coupon, a stock-up price for sure.
Read on for all the top deals.
Next time you go to CVS, check your receipt.
The drugstore has changed the look of its Extra Bucks, the as-good-as-cash rewards that print on the end of your receipt when you purchase qualifying items.
There are plenty of deals to keep you busy at the drugstores, Target and Kroger this week. Free items are available at each of the drugstores, some of them free without even clipping a coupon. You can get a FREE two-pack of Sharpie markers at Target. And Kroger has got another Mega Sale with great stock-up prices on Steamfresh veggies, Pepsi 2-liters and Colgate toothpaste, just to name a few.
Read on for all the great deals. And let me know what you find.
