Walgreens deals

Walgreens has some fantastic clearance deals. I love those orange little price stickers, don’t you?

Today, I bought…

  • 100 ct. plus 24 bonus ct. of Excedrin Back & Body. It was on clearance down to $2.29 from $8 something (or more, I forget). I had a $3 off Excedrin coupon, so I was able to get that for free plus.71 overage!
  • A bottle of Iceland water for .99. I had a coupon for a free Iceland bottle of water that I got in my Entertainment Book.
  • Four boxes of pudding. They are 4 for $1 this week with in-ad coupon. I’ll need some vanilla pudding for some Amish Friendship Bread that I’m making later today.
  • A gallon of milk $3.59 (hmm, on the shelf it said $3.61.No complaints!)

In all, my total was $8.21. After coupons, it was $3.88. I paid for that with my Walgreens gift card, so no money out of pocket. Yippee!

I considered buying a space heater from Walgreens. For select models, you can get $10 rebate. Still, for the one I wanted, it would be $40 out of pocket and $30 after rebate. It’s not all that chilly in here, so I’ll wait until the end of the season and try to buy one on clearance.

If you’ve purchased a space heater, how much did it cost? Are they worthwhile?

  1. When we were in an apartment, we had one oil-filled heater, and didn’t have to turn our heat on until February. It heated the whole apartment all by itself last year- and paid for itself in one month. Our electric bill went DOWN when we got it.

    When we bought a house, we got a second heater, and they are doing the bulk of the job heating the house right now, thought the heat does come on when it gets really cold outside- we have he thermostat set to 62.

    I’m convinced the oil-filled heaters are safer, too, since they’re only warm to the touch when on, and there’s no metal that’s getting red-hot, possibly a fire hazard.
