This week's Walgreens deals sound fabulous, but my fading brain can't quite do them justice. Here are some highlights from this week's ad, and I'll plan to update this post when I have more brain power. :-)
Wednesday, May 7 only: Free 8x10 photo enlargement. Use in-ad coupon.
Zantac Cool Mint 8 ct: 3.99; produces $3 RR; use $5/1 printable coupon (will probably need to be adjusted down). Final cost: Profit
Gillette Venus Embrace: 9.99, produces $6 RR; use with $4/1 coupon from 5/4 paper insert. Final cost: Free.
Ascensia Breeze 2 Blood Glucose Monitoring System: 9.99; send in for manufacturer's rebate. Final cost: Free
Post Chocolate Honey Bunches of Oats: 1.99; use with $2/1 printable coupons--and this one, this one, and this one. Final cost: Free.
Dawn dish soap: .79 with in-ad coupon; use with .25/1 from 4/6 paper. Final cost: .54
The big news for the week is the P&G Register Rewards deal. It gets a bit complicated, but here's the gist of it: Get $4 RR when you buy 3 participating products, $6 RR when you buy 4, $10 when you buy 5, or $20 when you buy 9. There are numerous coupons to combine with this deal--and more coming in Sunday's P&G Saver. Briefly, if you do a transaction with nine items, you get back $2.22 per item--so anything with a cost less than $2.22 will earn you profit. Following are some coupon match-ups to help get you started. What else do you see?
Cascade Action Packs: 2/$5; use $1/2 coupon from 4/6 P&G. Cost after RR: Profit
Charmin Freshmates: 1.99; use .25 coupon from 4/6 P&G. Cost after RR: Profit
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, cleaner, or wipes: 2/$5; use .50 coupons from P&G Solutions mailer. Cost after RR: Profit
Crest Pro-Health toothpaste: 2/$5; use $3/2 IVC (there are also several different manufacturer's coupons floating around--some have been found at dentists' offices). Cost after RR: Profit
Cover Girl cosmetics: BOGO1/2. Use with BOGO or $1/1 coupon from 4/6 paper insert or B3G1 coupon from 5/4. If this promo runs the same way the Suave deal did a few weeks ago, buying 6 items will give you credit for 9, thus producing a $20 RR.
