So instead of answering a bajillion questions a day about what coupons I used and what stores I got my deals at and why I’m so pretty and amazing all the time, I’ve decided to post my weekly deals on here for you all.
Every Saturday, Sunday and Monday I will attempt to find the absolute best deals I can on things that you can get for super cheap and/or free! You’re welcome!
I dipped my toes out of my comfort zone a bit this weekend and decided to explore a few other stores and test their coupon policies. I’ve done CVS before, but never with much luck. I didn’t really “get” the whole Extra Care Bucks (ECB) thing until yesterday. ECB is the advertised “cash back” type deals at CVS. You buy a certain product, or certain amount of product and earn money back to use towards the store (kind of like a giftcard, but it prints on your receipt). But when I was browsing through the inserts there was a deal too sweet to pass up.
Shampoo and conditioner. 2/$7. Seems like an OKAY deal on the surface, but when you pair it with the ECB deal that’s going on for P&G products, it’s pretty awesome. Spend $20 on P&G products and get $5 ECB. Spend $30 and get $10. Pantene is a P&G product and just happened to have a B1G1 coupon out in the coupon insert from 7/7. Oh, and there’s a coupon off on coupons.com
for $2/2, which can be used too.
So here’s what you do to get all this for less than $8 AND get $10 ECB back!
Clip 4 B1G1 free Pantene coupons from Sundays (7/7) paper.
Clip 3 20 cent Dawn coupons from Sundays (7/7) paper.
Buy 4 Pantene shampoos and 4 Pantene conditioners and 3 Dawn dish detergents (on sale for 97 cents!). Your total should amount should be around $7.38 then your receipt will print off a $10 ECB! You basically just got paid $3 to $40+ in product! In my first attempt (pictured above) I only bought 2 Dawn dish detergents because I thought that would knock the total to $30. It didn’t and only $5 ECB printed, so I bought another thing of detergent and used my CVS card and got the other $5 back! You MUST have a CVS card to get this deal with the ECB back.
Retail value $43.90, with coupons $7.38 plus $10 ECB back.
I love Wegmans. I mainly went there because I heard they had my favorite wine on sale, but checked up on their coupon policy before heading out. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that they doubled coupons valued under 99 cents!
Some of the best deals I found were these:
Barilla Pasta: Retails for $1.29, had 3 $0.75/2 coupon found on coupons.com
, so I spent 54 cents per box of pasta.
Colgate toothpaste: Retails for $2.99, on sale for $2.29. I had a 75 cent off coupon
which doubled, making the toothpaste only $0.79!
St Ives face wash: Retails for $3.29. Had a 75 cent off coupon
which doubled, making this only $1.79, which is a bit of a splurge for me, but I needed face wash.
Go-Go Sqeez: Retails for $2.49. Their Facebook page
has a $0.90 coupon if you share their page, which doubled making these only $0.69 each! Little S is obsessed with these. I need to go get more.
Wegmans Organic Jam: Retails for $2.99. Their website has a direct link
to a $2 off coupon, making the jam only 99 cents!
Snikiddy Snacks: Retails for $2.50, on sale for $2. Their website has a 75 cent off coupon
, which doubled making these only 50 cents. Never had them before, but I figured for 50 cents I’ll let Little S try them.
Retail Value $31.07, with coupons spend $10.48
I’m working on a few good Target deals too, I will update once I get in a trip to the store 🙂
If you have any questions please leave them on my blog and I’ll do my best to get back to them ASAP.
