Walgreens deals: February 17-23

I'm posting the Walgreens deals a bit earlier in the week in an attempt to both give y'all more of a head start and to work better with my schedule.

The big news is that it's officially Jane week... or something like that!

Jane makeup: BOGO; use with 2 of these $2/1 Jane coupons. And if you're buying mascara, also use the $2/1 IVC (page 7). Most products should be free or very close to it between these coupons. (In the case of the mascara, you should get $3 overage for each two mascaras you buy.) As always when using multiple coupons with a BOGO sale, YMMV.

Moneymaker: Venus Embrace: FAR all month (but rather scarce in stores...), use with $2 coupon from 2/17 newspaper. Some have reported finding a $10 MasterCard debit card inside the package, redeemable after filling out a survey. Beginning 2/22, there will be a $5 RR on this item. You may want to wait until then to purchase your FAR razor.

Twizzlers: use B2G1 tearpad coupons (found at Kmart), 2/2.29 7-day coupon, and $1/2 IVC (page 2). YMMV as to exactly how this rings up, but it should look something like this for six packages (depending on how they ring it up, you may get a bit of overage):

1.50 (regular price of the Twizzlers is 1/1.99 or 2/3.00)
x 6
9.00
-3.00 (B2G1 man q x2)
6.00
-2.13 (7-day store q)
3.87
-3.00 (IVC)
0.87

Free after RR: Gillette Fusion Phenom Razor: 9.99; use $4 coupon from 2/10 paper insert; produces $6 RR. (This is also reportedly included in the $5 RR deal with the Venus Embrace, beginning 2/22. That could mean you'll get $5, $6, or $11 in RR if you buy the Phenom on 2/22 or 2/23... We'll see, but I'm hoping for the $11.)

Free after RR: ChapStick Naturals: $2.00, produces $2 RR (currently unadvertised)

Photos: 7-day coupon--25 free when you buy 25

Maybelline lip & nail color: BOGO; use with $2 off any lip product from 2/10 insert.

Sunsilk: $3 RR WYB 3 products. Some have reported finding these on clearance; use with $1.50 coupons from 1/13 paper inserts or with this printable coupon. (Thanks, CentsibleSawyer!)

Revlon lip color: BOGO; use with $1/1 lip product from 10/21 paper. Coupons expire 2/21.

The March EasySaver period is reported to begin on February 22, giving a two-day overlap between the February and March rebate periods. This would be an ideal time to pick up some March FAR items with Jane overage. You can find the list of March rebate items here, with thanks to Irish Lass.

Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew: Buy on 2/22 or 2/23; using February $3 IVC (page 7) and manufacturer's coupon: $1 coupons from 11/11, 12/2, and 1/27 inserts, $2 tearpad coupon (found at Kmart), or possibly this $2 coupon. Send in March ESR for several dollars overage.

True Lemon (individual packets of powdered lemon juice): 1.99 (normal price); use $1 printable from coupons.com.

Dove & Degree Deodorant are on sale for $1.99/ea. If you clipped the $1/1 coupons from past papers, you can get these for $0.99/ea. My store had bonus packs of both items that included a travel size of each product, which is an added bonus. (Thanks, Meredith!)

Thanks to Hot Coupon World and Irish Lass, you can find the ad scans here. What other deals do you see?

Oh no! I didn't read this ahead of time and already bought the Venus razor (free though since I used a bunch of RRs on it!). BUMMER!

Help! What does YMMV stand for? Your something May Vary?

Thanks for posting your deals! I always check out your site before heading to Walgreens!
