Drugstore.com Penny Sale

on 9.6.2010 at 11:37pm

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.

You can get 5 items for a penny each at Drugstore.com.  You will owe shipping but in the end my total came to $6.04 for the 5 items and I got 6% cash back.  There is a limit of one deal per account.

To get the deal:

1.  Go here and login/register with Ebates.
2.  Click on the first coupon on the page for the Penny Sale.
3.  Add 5 participating items to your cart and the total will be adjusted

You will get your 6% cash back in your next Ebates check.  If you are new to Ebates you’ll also get $5 for signing up!

      Is it just the one page that you can get the penny sale? Or are there more?

      • Ginger

        my question also. only the 14 items, various soaps and washes?

      • Just that page. Would be awesome if there was more.

      Love it! I have been meaning to get to Dollar Tree to pick up some hand soap for the bathrooms but for $.20 more, I've got some high end hand soaps! I got 3 Lavender and 2 Citrus Vanilla liquid hand soaps. Thanks! :D

    • guest

      i must be blind because i dont see the page. where exactly is it located?

      • melissa

        click on ebates coupon box for penny sale…NOT THE LINK AT top of page to go now. Must click one in the coupon code box

    • pattipate

      I'm so confused. Where do you click to get to the penny sale items.

    • Cathyplong

      HELP!!!!!! I can't figure any of it out. :-(

      • Revmcgahee

        When I got to the first page, I typed penny sale in the little search box and it brought up the drug store penny page…just go from there..It worked for me..

    • Hertreasure

      You click on the first coupon on the Ebates page for the Penny Sale. Then you choose your products. It is mostly lottions and soaps.

      • momof3inATL

        Success! Thanks for the tip.

    • Melly

      it won't do anything for me either. I logged in and it doesn't go to drugstore.com???

    • dkshipp57

      I tried diffent things and still didn't get the penny page. Do u think it's over?

      • Revmcgahee

        When I got to the first page, I typed penny sale in the little search box and it brought up the drug store penny page…just go from there..It worked for me..

    • Allysonhage

      I love drugstore.com. But, all of these penny items contain Sodium Laureth Sulfate and parabens. I’ll skip this sale…

    • Brooke99

      shop at home 8% cash back

    • Kelli

      I took advantage of their sister store-Beauty.com, too, while I got my.01cent items. Ive been needing to buy Urban Decay All Nighter(if you mist your face with this good smellling spray, your makeup will stay set perfectly ALL DAY. Even in humdity and being outdoors. It’s awesome stuff) I usually get it at Ulta for $29 + 10% TN tax. I got it for $29, with no tax, free shipping, my 5, .01cent items. So my total was $29.05, plus I requested my free 3 samples from Beauty.com.
      What a deal!

    • klb

      I’m having trouble finding the penny sale link or coupon to click on
      on drugstore.com Any ideas? thanks

      • Clarkwoman

        follow it from ebates after signing in.

    • Asisson

      Thanks that was fun!

    • dalight1

      shop at home.com has a cash back promo also. 9th one down the list – the penny item sale today only + 8% cash back.

    • Robertawhetsell

      this is awesome..just placed my order and it said i actually saved $30!!! WOOHOO

    • Jennifer
    • momof3

      Oh, well…I guess I missed it…Couldn't find the sale anywhere on the site…:(

      • Rivera Kelli

        Once you click the ebates link, look below the picture for the drugstore.com page (don’t click the main “Shop now” button. you will see a list of “coupons and coupon codes.” the first one will be for the penny items. Click that shop now button and it should work.

      • I've been trying for about 30 minutes with no success. I saw somewhere that it was supposed to run through September 13, but maybe the response was overwhelming.

      • Cryslynn29

        It just worked for me. If you sign in with ebates, it will take you to to a page that says online coupons and discounts…scroll down a little bit and you will see a box about the penny sale, in that box click shop now… it will bring you the the drugstore website with the items that qualify (on this page it doesn't show a penny, but when you add to the cart it adjusts the price). good luck!!

    • Dsease

      This was my first time making a purchase with ebates. This sale was not listed on my history. Does it take awhile to register and I didn't see anything about the $5 special for signing up?

      • AT

        It will take a few days to show up.

    • melissa

      ******************** OK, ladies, let's be smart here! This is exactly how it's done…
      once routed to Ebates, scroll down just a little where it starts to list rectangular boxes for “ecoupons.” It should be the first one that mentions penny sale. Click shop now ON THIS BOX and it will take you there! YEAH

    • Shannon

      This was great! I saved a total of $29.90!!

    • Mrsstags

      • Ajawee83

        Thanks! Worked for me!

    • lenalou

      This was a great deal! I also am new to ebates. I hope they pay off in the long run. I'm always reluctant to try new things. However this went very smooth. I spent 6.04 and got some really great hand soaps for the bathroom. I don't look at saying I spent 5.99 on shipping. I say I got everything for 1.20 each. For the size of the bottles that is a great price for hand soap. Very pleased so far. Thanks

    • mandy

      Thanks SueMac1! I also found added the “free Rosemary bath kit!” by searching in the search field for “freebie.” Once I did this, I pulled up the deal for the free kit! I did have to add some soap for the item to pop up in my cart. I added the $2.99 soap, and then the free item appeared. Spent: $9.03, saved $48.89!!!

    • Pammie

      whose email address can I put as referring me to ebates?

    • Wilma R

      How do I know which items are participating items?

      • Mandy

        you have to go thru ebates.com, search for the store, click on coupon link which connects you to the web page

    • Jennifer Brooks

      Thanks, spent $8.49. Got free shipping and saved $40.40!

    • Ashlee

      Is anyone having problems with this? When I click on the ebates link for the penny items, it says Sorry. Any help with this?

    • NATLEWIS2126

      I have tried to sign up with 3 different email addresses, each one gets an error message saying “invalid email”! Any suggestions?
      H E L P !!!!!!

    • ireneY

      I have 8 items in my cart for $7.53, but unable to press “checkout.” Am I the only one too cheap to pay for these items?!!! Sounds like the deal may be over anyway.

      • Sheila

        I definitely debated for awhile. In the end, I ordered. It's really not a bad deal with the additional freebies. At some point, I'll be able to give this to someone as a gift and the recipient will be happy and so will my wallet. Plus, I like getting packages in the mail. :-)

      • Shelby

        I went for it, although I thought hard. I did the ibuprofen to get the free shipping, although I missed the get 5 for a penny and only got 3 for a penny I picked up a few other freebies to make me feel better. :)

    • L Sherrill

      This was great! I got the 5 de-luxe items for .01 each, a free travel size Almay eye makeup remover, free Visine eye drops, 2 free samples of Fekkai hair products and bought the 500 count ibuprofen for $8.49, which made shipping (normally $5.99) free! I got the whole lot for a grand total of $8.54. You can't beat that!

    • Lisak120103

      You have to go thru the ebates site to find the penny page.

    • Bamabobbie

      It's now down to one item for a penny. Glad I finally got mine earlier.

    • Lori

      Mine offer went from only 3 items to 1 in the 5 mins I was shopping then logged in?? anyone else have this prob?

    • JRaper77

      Yup – now down to only one item. Would have been a fantastic deal if I saw this before I left work. Aargh.

    • cl

      I went to this link. You can only get 1 item for a penny.

    • sww

      hmmm…when i checked out, it was priced like jenny's deal ($6.04 for five items). i just got a shipping confirmation and the invoice has charged for all of it!!! anyone else have this happen? any thoughts?

    • Allison

      How did you do that! They would only let me get one item for a penny not five.

    • April

      Has anyone gotten an email saying part of your order has been cancelled? I just got one telling me that part of mine was cancelled due to backorder, including the de-luxe BAIN Bath Set in Abaca Bag, Rosemary Mint (this was the 3 items that you got after spending $25 on de-luxe, which I didn't really do but it worked anyways) along with the Almay pads and one of the free samples. Still a good deal.

      • Jackie O

        Yeap, I got the same email saying they had to cancel the free Abaca Bag free gift.

    • Melissa

      Only allowing 1 item for a penny now. Oh well, I was gonna use these as Christmas gifts.
