Walgreens deals: March 2-8

The big news for this coming week is the Olay bar soap deal--for weeks it's been a hot topic in couponing forums. And in an unprecedented move, I actually bought coupons for this deal. If you're planning to cash in on this particular promotion, do it early in the week. It's a hot item and will move quickly.

Moneymaker: Olay or Zest bar soap multi-pack: 2/$4; prints $4 RR; use $2/1 Olay bar soap pack or $1/1 Zest bar soap pack (both from 2/10 paper insert).

The following are all part of the same promotion, but I will list the details separately so as to not cause confusion with different coupons. The following 6/$20 deals are mix and match, so you could, for instance, buy two Olay body washes and four Aussie products and get $12 in RRs. Because the bar soap and body wash/hair care deals are all P&G, it is not a given that the RR will "roll" from one deal to the other. I will post when I know if it does.
Edit: It appears that the RR will not roll from one deal to the other.

Moneymaker: Olay Botanicals body wash: 3/$10 or 6/$20; prints $4 RR if you buy 3 or $12 in RR (3 $4 RRs) when you buy 6; use with 6 $2/1 bar soap or body wash from 2/10 paper insert. It's a better moneymaker to use the Olay coupons on the bar soap, but if you need body wash, this is still a good deal.

Herbal Essences hair care: 3/$10 or 6/$20; prints $4 RR if you buy 3 or $12 in RR (3 $4 RRs) when you buy 6; use B2G1 coupon from 2/10 paper insert. Your OOP may vary depending on what price the cashier enters for the free bottle, but (for 6 bottles) shouldn't be more than $13.34 and you'll receive $12 in RR. ***Some have reported finding HE hair gel on clearance for $1. Since the RR is based on the number of items purchased, you should be able to buy six of these and receive $12 in RR.

Aussie hair care: 3/$10 or 6/$20; prints $4 RR if you buy 3 or $12 in RR (3 $4 RRs) when you buy 6; use $2/2 coupons from 3/2 paper insert.

Old Spice body wash: 3/$10 or 6/$20; prints $4 RR if you buy 3 or $12 in RR (3 $4 RRs) when you buy 6; use $1/1 coupon from 3/2 paper insert.

Pantene hair care: 3/$10 or 6/$20; prints $4 RR if you buy 3 or $12 in RR (3 $4 RRs) when you buy 6; however, I do not know of any coupons to use on this. (There will be Pantene coupons in the 3/2 paper, but they're for a different size bottle.) Edit: The trial size Pantene shampoo and conditioner (1.7 oz) are producing the RR.

Gillette Fusion Phenom or Venus Embrace razors: 9.99, prints $5 RR; use $4/1 Phenom coupon from 2/10 paper insert or $4/1 Embrace coupon from 3/2 paper insert. (If you're buying both razors, buy them in separate transactions so that both RRs will print.)

Crest Dental Care: 3/$9, produces $3 RR. There are some low-value coupons out for these products, but it only looks to me like a good deal if you picked up some of the $3.50/1 coupons some report finding at their dentist's office. You can also request a $3/2 dental products coupon by clicking here, though it probably won't reach you in time for this sale. This RR should keep printing through 5/31.

Post cereals: 1.99 each; if your store carries Chocolate Honey Bunches of Oats, use this $2 printable to get those free (may need to be adjusted down one cent).

March FAR deals:

Garnier Fructis Hair Stylers 2-8.5oz (excludes shampoo, conditioner, serums, and treatments), up to $4.29; use $1/1 coupon from 1/6 or 2/3 paper inserts.

Colgate Total Advanced Clean or Whitening Toothpaste 4-4.20 oz, up to $3.29; use $1/1 coupon from 2/3 paper insert or the $1/1 printable here.

Theradent Oral Rinse 8 oz, up to $9.99; use $1/1 coupon from 2/10 paper insert.

Listerine Smart Rinse 250 ml, up to $3.99; I don't know of any readily-available coupons for this item, but since it's a new product, they may offer one soon. (Some have reportedly found a tearpad for Listerine mouthwash at their dentist's office.)

Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew, up to $12.99; if you buy a cleanser or moisturizer, use $3/1 from the 1/27 paper inserts or this $2 printable.

Nature Made Liquid Softgels: Vitamin D 1000 IU (90 pack), Super B (90 pack), Vitamin C (90 pack), Calcium 600mg w/D (100 pack), Multi for Her (60 pack), or Multi Complete (60 pack), up to $8.00; use with $1.50/1 multis printable (signup required).

Thanks! There is not a CVS within 400 miles of me, but there are a lot of Walgreens. It's nice to find someone who relies upon the Walgreens deals, too!

Ok, all this makes my head hurt :)

If I don't have the coupons, could I get two Olays for $4, get the RR and use it towards my monthly freebies?

Weee! I have been waiting for this week for a while. I preordered my soap bars and they are ready and waiting for me. This is going to be a great week for deals!

Kim: Thanks for asking. Yes, if you don't have the coupons, the Olay bar soap packs are still free after the RR.

I was wondering if have have to buy 6 olay or if I can buy one of each of the brands (like Old Spice, and Pantene, and Herbal Essances) just so it is 6 items?
