Here are all the best deals you can find at drugstores this week.  If your store is already out, ask them about letting you do a rain check purchase at Rite Aid.  This means you buy it now, and pick it up when they are in stock again.  Not all stores will let you, but it never hurts to ask.

My favorite this week has to be the Pampers deal at Walgreens.  I don’t have kids in diapers, but it’s awesome to help anyone out in need too!

If I have left something out, leave a comment and I’ll bring it up to the list. Enjoy!

    • tina

      is the clean and clear body wash free at walgreens with the buy one get one free coupon?

      • Paige

        Yes!

        • lyndsey

          i tried this at walmart because my walgreens was out. i heard of other walmarts doing it but mine was like… you cant get it for free! you have to pay for 1! wasted 30min of my life… they tried to ring them up @2.48 a piece(to equal 1 at walmart's price) and use the bogo coupon on that. so i just didnt get. will try another one and target too if i cant get any at walgreens

          • ADPL

            My Walmart tonight wanted me to pay $2.99 each.

    • Mommatonk

      Beware of using RR again on second purchase of same item that you received them for. You can't get them again. For example, it you buy pampers that give $3RR and you go back in and buy more pampers, use your $3RR expecting $3RR again, you won't get them. It cancels it out.

    • Minkyatee

      If Wags is out of Clean and Clear body wash. You can bring the Wags circular to Target and they will honor it. (BOGO). I think the coupons expire shortly.

      • ADPL

        The Target near me (Northeast Columbia) told me today that they do not price match BOGO even if it has a price.

    • Pepsi1williams

      i cant find the infant care booklet every one is selling them on ebay shame on them

    • Rebecca

      Where do I get the Walgreens coupon for the Pampers?!?
      Thanks

      • Pennydealchick

        ask an employee to help you find it…every store is different as to where they have them…

    • Cayoung_8

      LYSOL WIPES ONLY 30 CENTS EACH AT WALGREENS

      My walgreens in Gainesville Ga had the LYSOL WIPES on BOGO for 3.59. If you printed the 1.50 off 1 lysol wipe coupons that were out a few weeks back you can score this deal: Buy 2 for 3.59 use (2) 1.50/1 coupons pay only .59 cents for 2 or approx 30 CENTS EACH!!! I didn't look to see if this was in the ad, just noticed it on the shelf.

    • Fallaya

      Is that Huggies diaper coupon a manufacturer coupon or a Walgreens coupon? Is there a way to know for sure? The cashiers at my local Wags says that they are manufacturer coupons and can't be used with any other coupons…

      • Fallaya

        OOPS meant Pampers coupon!!

      • Pennydealchick

        The coupon in the Wags book reads that it is a mfr coupon…but it is coded for Wags…if they state they need to keep the Wag coupon show them that the monthly Wags coupon book reads the same way and they never keep those…I had a manager take my book and started to cut it out..I asked him to wait until so I could show him the monthly book first…he was very nice after that…Thank goodness I got to keep my Infant book…

      • Amayle04

        I was told that they were manuf. Q's when i was there on sunday. They did take my coupon even after i tried to explain it was a walgreens Q. The manager told me that originally they thought it was a walgreens Q but recently found out it isn't and they need to send it in to be reimbursed. I'm wondering what they do with the Q for walgreens diapers in the same book? Do they send it back to themselves? I was also told i could not use the code, they need a physical coupon. Not so happy.

    • Forbushab

      I didn't get the $5 RR for the Pampers Diapers. I just got a $5 off coupon for my next purchase of Pampers there. So it wasn't as cheap for me as it should have been. :(

      • Whitney

        The same thing happened to me. Only got a $5 off coupon for more pampers.

        • Brenda

          That's what happened to me, so I went back got one more pack of diapers, used the $5 off and the $3 RR which left a dollar and the tax…I did buy a pack of chocolate covered peanuts which were on sale for 49 cents too, so sorry I couldn't be more exact..but it was around $2 for the whole thing.

          • Adamsdmd

            So you were able to use the $3 RR on more pampers?
            Also, anyone know if you buy $20 more of pampers do you get another $5 q?

            • Pennydealchick

              yes you will get the $5 back each time you do the deal. Even if you use the $5 from the 1st to buy the second. Hope this helps

          • Jjrutt

            If you only spend the 18 and not the 20 you get a $2 off coupon instead of the $5

        • cheryl

          Happened to me also. Manager said it was because I used a $3 RR from last week. (Not from Pampers, however) He did eventually manually print me the additional $3 RR when I said I wanted to return everything and get my coupons back. Wags can be a real pain even when you buy enough filler items to meet your number of coupons. I honestly hate to shop there. But I wanted cheap diapers today so……

          • Jjrutt

            Could your RR be a P & G RR, if so it would not have printed your $3 RR because you cant use the same brand RR to buy another P & G product

    • Isaacsmawmaw

      The Walgreens in the Easley and Greenville area are not doing the 5 wyb 20 nor do they have the Infant book. Disapointed.

      • elizabeth

        Mine didnt even know what the infant book was, but my cashier and the manager were SO sweet. I told them I knew the code to punch in (5521) so they did that no problem! The $5 isn't a RR though FYI its $5 off your next pampers purchase and it ROLLS!

        • momof3

          I also got a $3 PG as well…

        • Nursehendren

          what do you mean when you say it ROLLS?

          • corsicab

            You can use it in your very next transaction for Pampers and get another $5 coupon. It's not like a RR where if you use it on the same item it won't print another one.

    • Deanna25

      where do you get the infant care booklet to use at walgreens?

      • Melissa

        try looking in the cosmetics section, that's where they are in my store

      • momof3

        Deanna, I'd ask. My store puts things in odd places, but they always know where they are…For example, mine were in with the vitamins…Logical, right? I find that the cashiers and folks are really helpful!

      • Ashley Wilkerson

        I got them off ebay because they are no where to be found in SC!

    • i know cvs didn't have a great ad, but here is what i grabbed today:

      allegra 30ct, $17.99 (much needed at our house!)
      -register coupon for $5/1 allegra 15ct or higher
      -$4/1 allegra 30ct or higher (printable)

      -$5 off $25 emailed CVS coupon

      Total OOP: $13.97 + tax
      ECB Remaining: $7 (revlon products)

      I also grabbed the following deals on my husband's CVS card, which is seperate from mine. Therefore, can't use the ECB from above on the below deals since they are seperate card numbers.

      Covergirl Lipstain, $6
      -$2.50/2 Covergirl products

      -$2 ECB (from 2wks ago)
      -$3 off $10 in cosmetics, CVS coupon kiosk

      -$1/1 Herbal Essence product
      -$3 ECB from above deal

      Total OOP: $1.97 + tax
      ECB Remaining: $2

      For the whole trip I spent $20.44 and have $9 ECB remaining. That is for $52.94 in products. Not bad for a slow week!

    • elizabeth

      The code for the Pampers is 5521 if you can't find the book in your stores. My cashier typed it in for me no problem and the manager was impressed that I cam so prepared- its worth a shot if you don't have a book! The worst thing they can say is “no” right? :)

      • Kking0720

        So you just tell them that you have a “code” for pampers?

        • corsicab

          I asked my Wags cashier for the Infant Care booklet. She said she had never heard of it. So I asked her if she would use a code I had found for the Pampers coupon in the booklet. She said she would gladly try it and it worked just fine. :)

    • Daniel

      Got two things for you. 1. The Infant Care coupon book is no longer available. That was a one time thing. They were sent to us and after trying to order more, the Walgreen sign shop said that they were provided by a third party and no longer available. 2. Did you know that we have to take Walgreen coupons BEFORE manufacturer coupons or else our stores lose money? In your couponing technique guide for Walgreens, you state to use Walgreen coupons last. Why would you promote doing something that actually hurts Walgreens? I have couponers who come into my store and PURPOSELY hide their Walgreen coupons until all their manufacturer coupons have been scanned. Sure, using the Walgreen coupons last saves more money for the couponer, but it hurts the store they are frequenting. Why do you suggest this technique? I don't understand abusing a system just to save a few bucks. Instead of playing games with coupons and hurting people in the process, why don't you promote using coupons just to save money on things you need?

      • Brittany

        How is it hurting you? You are still reimbursed for the manf. coupon being used! Second, until you have actually been to one of Jenny's couponing classes you shouldn't judge or make assumptions about her! She ALWAYS encourages ethical couponing. It seems to me that you are being extremely judgmental and simply wasting your time!

      • cheryl

        I separated my Wags coupons and my MFR coupons today and asked the cashier which she would like first…she said she couldn't care less…if they went thru..fine…if they beeped…too bad for me !!!! Is there something to be said for cashiers abusing couponers, or do you only see it from your perspective? You sound like a grumpy Wags store manager!!

        • Rgnurse911

          I hate shopping at walgreens. I rarely go there. They have a few friendly cashiers but not many.

          • Toni

            I have found that some Walgreens stores from several different Florida counties do not train their cashiers well. The cashiers do not watch what is happening on their monitors. I have even experienced them scanning the wrong side of the coupon and not even noticing it but insisting all the coupons have scanned. Some stores keep the customer in the dark as to what is going on on the monitor of the cash register. I have wasted literally hours of time shopping at Walgreens because of such imprecision. One Walgreens I have shopped at in Citrus County won't even let cashiers deal with coupons on their own; they have to call a manager over every time. It is their manager's policy. Wastes the time of everyone in line. Walgreens, please get your act together. Either take coupons according to your coupon policies, or change your policies. If you are going to take them, stop behaving with resentment toward them. Train your cashiers. Customers are getting tired of you.

            • Toni

              I have one thing to underscore: Walgreens, please train your cashiers so that they know how to deal with coupons according your your coupons policy that is on the Walgreens website. That would solve all our problems.

      • Hey there,

        All manufacturer coupons are reimbursed at their face value no matter the sale price. That is why the Walgreens coupon policy even states you can use (2) coupons on B1G1 deals even though one item is technically free. So the store is not affected either way as to when a coupon is used. Scanning Walgreens store coupons last is needed only because your register system is not set up to handle a coupon that is more than the price of an item. Your coupon policy states that you will reduce the value of the coupon if needed (which is fine) but most shoppers will tell you that very few cashiers actually know how to do this.

        Either way, there is no effect to the store since again the manufacturer reimburses the store at the face value of the coupon no matter the sale amount (look at the new Walmart policy as an example of stores realizing this as well).

        Hope that helps.

        • thanks Jenny for clarifying an “uninformed consumer” and Wags employee! I had been frustrated with my local Wags, but recently the store manager replaced the employees who were not treating customers (couponers) right and has put in place a much better team. I checked out at the cosmetic counter last week and was very pleased with the service. Hoping it continues and more managers follow suit…….

        • Medicgirl014

          Went into 2 different Walgreens today. Each time I was told by the cashier to use my manufactuers coupon first because I would benifit from it. I did have a problem with the $5 reg. reward and when the manager was called over to help he acutally cut the price of some vit. by $5 which in turn made the second bottle free! I am extremly new to couponing but I love Walgreens and have never had a issue there.

        • Daniel

          Clearly you have quite the following. I would like the opportunity to respond to the comments below. 1. I appreciate having couponers in my store as long as they use their coupons in an ethical manner and have patience when things don't work 100% in their favor. 2. I am amused that couponers are telling me how my store gets reimbursed for coupon usage. If the system is stopping you from using a manufacturer's coupon after Walgreen coupons, there is a reason. And that reason is that ultimately Walgreens will lose money if it doesn't. It's simple math, really. 3. Maybe I am lumping couponers into a general lump. This is not fair to everyone. The couponers who come to my store are very rude to my employees (which by the way, I care for a great deal) if their “coupon game” is not working perfectly for their own gain, they hold up the line for my other customers as we try to 'figure out' why the coupon did not take for their own gain, they try to ring different transactions for the exact same item just to get more Register Rewards therefore depleting my shelf for other customers for their own gain, and they expect me to smile and all rainbows and sunshine.

          So, I apologize to those many couponers out there who I might have offended in my previous posting. My bit of advice for the new couponers is to please treat your cashiers right. Don't cause the manager of a store to fire and rehire cashiers as the one comment said below. Those poor cashiers now do not have jobs because of coupons. And please keep in mind that forcing a system such as Walgreen registers to take something that is not meant to be taken, such as manufacturer coupons, is not an ethical move no matter who says it is.

          This will be my last comment left as I am certain I have no strength here. All I ask is that you take a moment to chew over my side of things as I'm sure you've heard all about your side of things. Once again, this will be my last comment as I did not intend on fighting or defending, just informing.

          Thanks for reading and I hope that we can all have a very beneficial relationship together. And hey, listening to a below comment, maybe I'll see you at some workshops!

          Take care,
          Daniel

          • Sara

            I mean no disrespect to 'your' store in this comment. I also get so frustrated at the women who 'play the game' with wrong attitudes. I get so ill at people who hoard items instead of taking what they need, will donate, or what they can store and use before expiration. That being said, I am an honest couponer. I don't try to 'bend the rules' and I certainly don't disrespect the employees if something doesn't go my way. I also am so fed up with my local Walgreens (multiple stores, different owners/managers) that I could spit. I have never, NEVER, had an issue at CVS. Only once when **I** misread the coupon and picked up the wrong item. I would go into Walgreens combining a sale price with a coupon (never bothering with WG coupons or RR because of the hassle) and they would still reject it. As I said before, I don't try to rip any stores off so when CVS took the coupon for the same item and **I** was disrespected at Walgreens by the employees because the coupon 'just wouldn't work', I never went back. It sounds like if Walgreens as a whole – be it their computer systems or the employees understanding how to differentiate between honest couponers and scam artists – would work like your store does then the problems would cease. I just wanted to point out that there are honest people fed up with coupons there. Pick on all the 'crazy coupon ladies' you want (or kick them out of your store, doesn't bother me) but don't think they are the only ones who are jaded by couponing at walgreens.

          • Frustrated at WAGS

            This is exactly why I stopped shopping at any Walgreen's store.  You have the wrong attitude toward people trying to save a few dollars in this tough economy.  I had a bad experience some time ago when the store manager was annoyed I was trying to buy all the deals JUST in the Walgreen ad.  I can spend my money elsewhere if your store is too good to handle people with a few coupons.

      • $avin'some$

        @Daniel- this blog is absolutely ALL ABOUT ethical couponing. Obviously, you wouldn't have posted what you did if you didn't believe it to be true- but I hope you will look further into it when you go back to work so that you aren't misinforming your customers.

      • momof3

        I got several of the books in my store…Floyds Knobs, IN….Secondly, I've never seen her suggest anything like putting the coupons in a specific order…I just see a list. I'm assuming that you are an employee who isn't thrilled with us couponers to begin with…I truly hope your day gets better!

      • wags employee

        I work at walgreens, and our manager said man. first then walgreens.So maybe you are wrong????????

      • Herndonquad

        Had the worst experience in Walgreens this weekend. Terrible customer service and attitudes by the employees

      • Creekindiannana

        Daniel did you ever manage a store in Bradenton, Fl. because you sound just like a person I worked for at Walgreens in Fl. Get a grip Daniel… No one is trying to rip off Walgreens. People like you always get upset when the consumer out smarts you. Why don't you tell people how your store bonus is riding on us using the coupons the way you want us to. You take Walgreens coupons before manufacturers coupons because your bonus rides on your stores sales. How much do you make a year? Do you have to use coupons for your families budget? Like I said before… Get a grip Daniel!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Seaya367

      I'm kinda new to Walgreens rr do I get the rr for Pampers And use them in the same transaction. I have the code and the other coupons so wondering about the rewards part.

    • Cahugh4

      Un-Advertised Deal Alert!!!! The always ultra thin pad 20ct are BOGO for 2.99. Match it with a $1/1 Q and you get both for $1.99. Jenny (or any one else who may know the answer) would it be possible to use 2 Qs on this deal, making it 2 for .99?

      • What store are you talking about? And yes, you can use 2 coupons.

        • Cahugh4

          at walgreens

        • Talia

          does walgreens bogo items ring up half price each?

          • Tburch329

            My store rings up the 1st as full and the second one free. So you have to get both to get the best deal.

          • No. They both ring up at full price and then the register deducts the price of one of them at the bottom.

    • Talia

      Help me out, haven't really dealt with walgreens and by some comments i need to be prepared. I have 2 of the clean and clear bogo coupons and also have a $1.00 & $2.00 off any one clean & clear products?

      • Rgnurse911

        @d7e939441f3b268899cd076a4d748ce3:disqus What is your question?

      • KA

        You only need to use the 2 BOGO coupons, and get 4 bodywashes. You will only pay tax, since they are 5.99 and BOGO already. The store will give you 2 free and your coupon will give you 2 free. You dont need the $ off ones.

    • Rachel1318

      Ok at Walgreens if I buy 2 pampers diapers and 1 wipe can I use, $2 off infant care booklet 2 times taking $4 off, $1.50 off diapers coupon , $.50 off wipes coupon and then I have a $2 off Walgreens coupon for diapers and wipes? Thanks!

      • Rgnurse911

        @5c9a208afc370f69c465ddfc0049d986:disqus At WG you cannot have more coupons than items. It sounds like you are buying 3 items and have 5 coupons. You need to find what is called a “filler” item. Find something small a pencil or eraser for 10 cents or a small candy bar, try to find something that is less than the coupon you are wanting to use or it wouldn't do any good to use the coupon. Just need as many items as you have coupons you want to use even though the coupons aren't aren't for those items. Hope this helps and it isn't too confusing what I am trying to say.

        • Rachel1318

          Thanks so much! Can I use the infant care $2 and a $2 wags coupon that printed out after a transaction?

          • Jjrutt

            Yes you can because the printed one rings up as a manufacture coupon.

    • Wgkgbm03

      Ok so I am new to your site and still learning please tell me how I know which of the above sales are for my area and if some of the places to get the coupons are for certain states. I have never heard of the recycle bank and do not know about the pharmacy booklet. Kroger home mailer do you sign up for that. Thanks in advance for your help.

      • carmen

        you can go to walgreens website to view their circular and put in your zip code to make sure the store near you is having same deal. the pharmacy booklet is a book you get in the actual store. recyclebank.com is a website you sign up for and earn points doing different stuff and you can use the points to get rewards (coupons) on their website. Not sure about the korger home mailer b/c we dont have one where i stay

      • Hi, just start slow. Jenny has lots of great tips for beginners. I would start by picking a store and then go to Jenny's section on that particular store and read the beginners info so you can familiarize yourself with the basics for that store.

      • Mel

        You're not going to have all the coupons she mentions. Just keep following her site and she'll have posts about various things like Recycle Bank (or do a search on her blog for past posts). Kroger home mailers are a pain–some people get them, some people don't. You can call customer service and ask them about getting coupons mailed, but there's no guarantee. I don't shop Walgreens, so I don't know about the pharmacy booklet–probably in store somewhere–you could ask. Take it slow, keep reading the blog, and things will fall into place. Oh, and feel free to keep asking questions. I had a million when I started!

    • Rgnurse911

      I hate shopping at walgreens. I rarely go there. They have a few friendly cashiers but not many.

    • DGgirl09

      I don't see the Pampers $2 off store coupon on Walgreens website…

      • couponmama

        It's in the Infant Care savings book available at Walgreens- check at the cosmetics counter or ask a manager to give you one.

    • Hailey

      I keep going over the Pampers deal idea, and I keep coming up with 12.99 out of pocket! What am I not getting? It's 20.99 before coupons, then a $1 coupon, 2 $1.50 coupons (so $3), and then a $2 that will go twice (so $4). That's $8 in coupons, subtracted from 20.99 is 12.99!! I must misunderstand..

      • Rachel1318

        You get back $8 in RR.

        • Hailey

          Thanks for your replies! I was just curious as to why it says you pay 15.99, when I come up with 12.99. I understand that the deal works and that you get back RR, but when I calculate OOP I don't include the RR. I include the RR value when I actually USE it. :) So 20.99 – $8 in coupons still equals 12.99 OOP! lol

      • SweetGirl

        I think if you spend 20$ for dipers this month they give you 5$RR back! If it is right so after transaction you will get 2 coupons RR 3$ and 5$. So 20.99$-8$ coupons-8$RR=4.99$. But it is hard to believe you get 2 times RR on the same product in 1 transaction, have to try I guess. Basically you still pay 12.99 and get 8$ back.

        • Jen

          I did this deal twice. I have a 2 year old and a 2 week old so I need a LOT of diapers in all different sizes. My first transaction, I bought 2 packages of the newborn diapers and one package of thick wipes. I received one $3 RR, one $5 RR and one $5 off pampers coupon! Fantastic deal!
          Second transcation: bought 1 size2 package of diapers, 1 size 3 package of diapers and one package of thick wipes. I only received back one $3 RR and one $5 off pampers coupon. I didn't receive the additional $5 RR in this transaction.

          • Jjrutt

            Did you use p and g RR to pay for the second transaction, if so that would be why you didnt get it.

          • Bamabobbie

            Did the same deal once and only recd the $3.RR and a $5. coupon good on the next purchase.

      • SweetGirl

        Hailey, it works!!!!!! Just got mail from my friend, you get back RR 3$ and 5$!!! But this 5$ is COUPON for you nex purchase of Pampers!!!!!!!!!1

    • SweetGirl

      Ok, need advice from Rite Aid shoppers! Can I use 2 the same manuf. coupons for deal B1G1 50% off??????????. Thanks!!!

      • Jdsimon12

        YES!!!! totally!

    • ppete davisete davis

      my problem is these Drug stores are always out of the deals i get my rain checks which you cannot use with a coupon ! so i take ad or booklet deal to Walmart to get a price match no RR or Ups no doubling but at least they have it…. Tylenol precise $5 off in ATL was only good for one week!! wall=mart had it drugs stores did not!!

      • br

        A lot of people buy them all out on Sunday and Mondays so there is none left for others. I hope there are no “extreme couponers” in your area. Seems to be in ours. Even Publix has put a sign out with the limit on bogo specials.

    • Cjfd43

      I am new to the lingo so what does rr mean? On the above what does the m and s in boxes mean and also the ss? I need to learn this lingo.

    • Rntobe10

      Just went to walgreens and the cashier used the pampers code. Got 2 pampers and 1 wipe and 2 pieces of candy (filler) total was 12.96 OOP and got back $3 RR and a $5 coupon on next purchase. I did not get another $5 RR. wonder what I did wrong not to get it.

      • Jenncalhoun

        its not a $5RR she has it listed wrong. Its a $5 off coupon on your next Pampers purchase

        • anninnc

          I did that scenario too and me and the cashier were going over it and could not figure out what she was talking about,it is a 5.00 pamper coupon.

          • Atdevore

            same here and was surprised to get the coupon and not a rr, also the baby care book is no where to be found…..manager said the dates last a long time and when they get them they only get 1 case per store…ughhhhh

    • Jenna

      I am going to try to do the RiteAid deal of getting 3 bottles of Aveeno lotion. The coupons Jenny listed are 2 $2 coupons then a B2G1 coupon. My question is these two sets of coupons are different products. The 2 $2 coupons are for suncare products and the B2G1 coupon is for positively nourishing lotion. I'm confused as to what 3 lotions to get. Do they need to be a combo of suncare lotions and positively nourishing lotions?

    • KC

      I have a few dumb questions. Do I have to use a rain check from Walgreens at the same store that I got it at or can I use it at any Walgreens? Also the coupon I have for the items expires on Saturday. Can I still use it once the items are restocked next week or am I out of luck? Thanks for any information. I appreciate all the helpful advice on this site. Thank you Jenny for all you do!

      • ShannonV

        The rainchecks are good at any store. Coupon expiration dates aren't extended. I ran into that issue a few weeks ago with the free Splenda deal.

    • Saraogles

      Went to CVS today and had a little more luck than just the carefree liners mentioned above. The Oral B toothbrushes on sale for 2/$5 include all of the manual singles. So the $1.50 PG coupon would work. I got 4 (five dollar) toothbrushes for the $10 sale price, subtracted $6 in coupons so they were only $1 each.

      Also (since I love nailpolish…) I used two Revlon coupons ($1 off) for two colors and used another ($2 off) a 9 dollar concealer that I needed anyway. I popped the $3 off $10 beauty purchase Kiosk coupon on top of that and paid $15 dollars for the three – getting $7 back for next time.

    • ashley

      Every time I try to print the “printable” link coupons that lead to “brick.coupons…” It says that my printer does not support it? I'm a mac user, and have a HP printer that works fine. Help!

      Ladies, check your binders to see if you have a store coupon for pads and liners from the CVS kiosk. I did the CVS deal for Carefree liners this week. Last week the CVS kiosk had given me a coupon for $2 off any pads or liners. I used this store coupon plus two $1 manufacturer coupons from Sunday's SS insert to get two free packages of liners (with profit) and a nearly-free tube of Crest toothpaste for which I used a raincheck in order to receive $3 ECB back.

    • SweetPea

      In a cvs store they had placed a tear pad for $1 off any 1 Revlon product. I used that with the $2 of any Revlon face product. I bought 3 of the Revlon Luxurious color one shade eyeshadows at $4.89 a piece. I also had the $3 off $10 purchase of cosmetics. I got $3 off each eyeshadow leaving $1.89 on each eyeshadow. I then used the $3 off $10 cosmectics bringing my total down to $2.67 plus tax. I got the $7 ECB back. I made a $4.09 profit. I'm new to couponing but it's getting exciting.

    • Wolfygersh

      I just earned a dollar at CVS buying ziploc bags and using my ECB's.  It was my first time and my husband was with me.  When the transaction ended, the guy at the register said, “well, we just paid you a dollar to shop with us today”.  Over an hour later, my hubby was still shell-shocked.  He said he could still hear the register guy in his head.  I think I just got him hooked!

    • Creekindiannana

      I went to Rite Aid yesterday. The $5.00 UP reward when you buy $20.00 of the colgate products… You have to spend $20.00 … that is after the B1G1 is taken off. The register will not issue the $5.00 reward! The ladies at the store were so nice! We rang the order 3 times so I could get the $5.00 UP reward to use on another order. Just keep that in mind. All in all, I saved about $50.00… that is always nice. I really like your site.

    • Russells4him

      We had our family's dental appointments this week.  Our hygeniest gave us coupon sheets.  One the sheets were $1 off Colgate toothpaste, $1 off Oral B toothbrush, $1 off Colgate toothbrush and one other, I can't remember and my coupon box is in the car.  Anyway, I used the $1 Colgate toothbrush on the colgate toothbrushes that Kroger normally has for 98 cents.  She gave me ten sheets!  I hope to use the rest on the Colgate sales there this week.  So you might want to stop by or call your dentist office, they may have them too. :)

    • Inkpressed

      Jenna, I just got on here to say this exact same thing about the coupons not being the same. I did not even try to make the purchase after I got there and realized the q's were not for the right product. Two months ago when I started “Q-ing” this was the first site I found out about and one of the first things I read was not to cheat because that was just like stealing. I do not think Jenny does it one purpose because she has a lot to keep up with, but it is dissappointing to see that a deal is not real. I have pretty much developed a “check it out and see” attitude. I am still grateful for all I can get because of this site.

    • Brannedy

      I am new to this site and am trying to learn what everything means.  What does “rr” mean on the Walgreen's advertisements?  And how do you use it?

    • Jessicabutcher80

      I got a really good deal at CVS today. I bought two Airwick starter kits for 5.99 a piece and had two $4.00 off coupons and got both of them for $3.99.

    • Important Question

      PARDON THE CAPS, BUT I HAVE AN IMPORTANT QUESTION:

      Can anyone confirm that the Reach toothbrush deal is working at all stores?  I'm getting ready to take the bus with the 2.5 year old, and I'd like to stop by Wags while we're out, but if the deal is not working, I'd rather not waste my time heading over there.  Thank you, and once again, excuse the caps.
