Walgreens deals this month

I haven’t been writing about drugstore deals as much lately. Sorry about that. I haven’t been going as often, these days.

Hey, Pittsburghers, if you have a coupon for Skippy peanut butter, take it to Kuhn’s. The coupon is worth .40 (but they double it at Kuhn’s) and peanut butter is on sale this week for $1. So, .20 peanut butter!

There’s some free-after-rebate deals at Walgreens this month. Limit 1 on all these:

  • Garnier Fructis shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner, or masque (rebate up to $4.29; at my store it was $3.99). Use a $1 off coupon from recent inserts, and make money on the deal!
  • Clear Care travel pack or convenience pack (contact lens stuff) up to $5.99
  • Gillette Venus Embrace razor system $9.99. My store didn’t have it in stock, darn.
  • 5-Hour Energy Drink 2 Pack $4.49
  • Softsoap Spa Radiant Body Wash 18 oz. $4.49
  • Mennen Speed Stick 24/7 $3.99. I had a buy one, get one free coupon (expires on Feb. 2) so I got 2 free deodorants.

I bought the shampoo, contact stuff, body wash, and two deodorants. Total before coupons (not including tax) $22.45. Had $4.99 in coupons, bringing it to $17.46. Add on a hefty $1.57 in tax, and I’m at $19.03. I paid for my purchase with a gift card, so no money out of pocket.

I’ll have Walgreens put my rebate money back on my gift card, earning me an extra 10 percent. The regular rebate would get me $18.46, and 10 percent of that is $1.85. Total, that’s $20.31that I’ll get back. Not too shabby!

I don’t plan to get anything else at Walgreens for February, so I’m going to send in my rebate form soon, so that I’ll get my money sooner.

So, those deals are the obvious ones–what are some other deals you’ve found?

  1. Thanks for the great saving tips. Is this at all Walgreens nationwide? It looks like this is a good place to find out how to save some money.

  2. Hey Dave–

    Thanks for dropping by. Yup, these deals should be at all Walgreens locations nationwide. These deals are featured in the monthly “Easy Saver” catalog.

    It’s a slim booklet that’s near the front of the store and the weekly ads. Ask an employee if you have trouble finding it.

    In that booklet, you’ll find store coupons and the items that will generate a rebate. The booklet also has the rebate form inside–it’s an important document!

  3. Hi Kacie,

    I’ve been lurking for a while and am enjoying reading your blog. The Walgreens deal for the new Venus razor says that it won’t be available until Feb. 7. I went Sunday evening and purchased the other items, except for the Speed Stick (DH won’t use that brand).

  4. There is Maybelline lip plumper on sale for the rebate price this week. It wouldn’t surprise me if they did the same with the Buckley’s Mixture or the Shell Oil before the month is over.

    There’s a pretty good deal on Kleenex this week, too, detailed on my blog.

  5. @ Melissa–Thanks for commenting! And, thanks for letting me know about the Venus razor. I might hold out on sending my rebate form in, now. I’ll have to think about it.

    @Centsible–I wasn’t sure if this was free or not, because at my store it was listed at $8 something. I don’t know if it just didn’t have the sale price on it or what. Thanks for letting me know!

  6. I don’t think they had the sign up at my store yet, either, but it was in the flier and the beauty adviser mentioned it to me when she saw all the other rebate stuff I was buying.

Sorry, comments for this entry are closed at this time.
