Drugstore Deals 11-22 to 11-28

These are the regular weekly deals.  The Black Friday deals are here.  If there are terms you are not familiar with (EB, RR, etc), check out the sidebar to the right of the post 🙂



  • Complete contact solution $8.99, get $8.99 EB (limit 2).  Use the $1 coupon in the 10-25 RP to make this a money maker.
  • Buy $15, get $5 EB when you buy Clean & Clear products.  There is a $5 printable coupon on the Clean & Clear website for the complete acne kits.  That makes these $10 after coupon & EBs.
  • T-Mobile pre-paid wireless handset $14.99, get $5 EB.
  • CVS batteries BOGO
  • Go to CVS.com and buy giftcards.  When you buy $25, they throw in an extra $5!  This is a great way to get some cards to use over the next year since they don’t expire.  Can’t beat free CVS money!

Overall, not a particularly impressive CVS week.  I will go to get my Complete solution, since that’s what I use.

  • Some small appliances are $9.99 this week.  There is an in-ad coupon to get an additional $3 off.
  • $3 RR when you buy $10 worth of Nabisco crackers – $2 each.  There is a $10 rebate here when you buy 10 boxes.  Use the $1/2 boxes coupon, and the $1/2 100-calorie packs from the Diabetes & You magazine.  Can also use the $1 coupon in the 11-8 SS.  Great way to make money on buying crackers!
  • Theraflu – $5 each, get $3 RR when you buy 2.  Get the sugar free powder version – use the $2 coupon in the Diabetes & You magazine (found in the pharmacy – will take off $4 if you buy 2), and use the $1.50 coupons found in the blinkie machines (the little things on the shelves that spit out coupons – I found mine at CVS).  Or you could use the $2 coupon from Theraflu.com if you have not printed it yet.  You will pay $3, and get $3 back.
  • Tylenol Cold $4.99, get $3 RR when you buy 2.  There is a $1 coupon in the Healthy Savings booklet, and there are some $1 peelies on the products.  If you cant find the peelies, you can use the $3/2 fron the 9-13 RP or the $1 coupon from the 11-8 RP, 10-4 RP, or the 9-13 RP.  Use both coupons on each item, pay $6, and get $3 back.  Great time to stock up, lots of coupons available!
  • Triaminic cold $5, get $5 RR when you buy 2.  Use the $1.50 printable or from the 10-18 SS, and use the $2 coupon in the Healthy Savings booklet.  Pay $3, get $5 RR back (a $2 MM!).  Great deal for kids’ medicine if you need it.
  • Enfamil $22.99, get $2 RR.  There is a $5 coupon here.  This comes to $16/can after coupons & RR.  Remember, you can use the checks on top of this as well if you have some.
  • Coffeemate creamer $2.49, BOGO.  Use the $1 coupons (print 2) to get 2 for $.49!
  • There is a $5/$25 purchase coupon.  Its good 11-22 and 11-13 (Sun & Mon).  The coupon states you must have $25 after all coupons, but some stores let you use it before the coupons.  Just be careful – if Walgreens coupons take your pre-coupon total below $25, this will not work.  So make sure you are above $25 after all Walgreens coupons, and it should work just fine.

    So on the crackers –

    If I’m buying five boxes can I use 2 MFCs for $1/2 and the Wags coupon $1/2 (x2) PLUS the SS coupon for five coupons to five boxes? Making it actually $5 for 5 boxes w/ 3 RR.

    • 2. sammyssecrets  |  November 21, 2009 at 12:33 am

      Yep, here’s how it works:

      5 boxes of crackers
      -$2 ($1/2 coupons x 2)
      -$2 (Wags coupon, might take off 2.5 depending on the register)
      -$1/q ManuQ
      =$5 OOP (or 4.50), get $3 RR. Do this twice & spend $10 OOP, get $6 RR, and submit for a $10 MIR. So its a $6 MM.

    SO doing it tomorrow! We’re out of crackers, too! 🙂

  • 5. Sarah  |  November 21, 2009 at 4:18 pm

    Ok, Do you know if you do the 10 box deal for the rebate, will you have to do two transactions to get RR for all 10? And if so, will Kraft Foods do the rebate if the ten boxes are on two receipts? I looked at the rebate form and it didn’t specify, and it seems like when I do RR, there is always some loophole that I don’t get as many as I expected, so I want to make sure that if I’m buying 10 boxes of crackers, I get the deal I’m after.

    • 6. sammyssecrets  |  November 21, 2009 at 8:43 pm

      Yes, you do have to do them on 2 separate transactions, or else you would only get the RR for one deal. You can not use the $3 RR from the first one to pay for the second, or else you will not get another $3RR. You can either roll your initial $3RR into something else, & then use it to buy your crackers, or you could pay the $5 out of pocket for both & use the $6 to buy something else later.

      The rebate form will allow separate receipts, just make sure to circle the items (I always like to highlight them too to make it easier).

    Just a note that for the BEST money maker, it’s limited to Triscuits and Wheat Thins bc that’s what the Wags coupon is for. If you want to mix in some Ritz, the best way to do it would be 4 box of T or WT and 1 Ritz per transaction making your total cost just $.50 higher each time. If you buy more Ritz than that, you’ll not be able to use the wags coupon.
