I got a few freebies at Walgreen’s today. Nothing complicated, since most of my coupons are just from today’s paper. I grabbed the Walgreens EasySaver catalog at the front of the store so I could see exactly which products are free after rebate this month.
In the past, I’ve had good success with simply getting the “free after rebate” items that I wanted. When you opt to put your Walgreens rebate on a gift card, you’ll get an extra 10 percent back. Gotta love getting free things AND earning 10 percent back! So, I’ll continue to combine coupons with those free deals, get the products I’ll use at some point, and use some of my leftover giftcard funds to get other things we need.
–Walgreens maxi pads 12-24 pack (check catalog to know which varieties) $1.99
–EARinse Ear Cleansing spray $9.99
–Walgreens standard light bulbs 4-pack $1.69 (The pack I got was on sale for .99)
–Kickers energy spray $3.29
–Oral-B Cross Action toothbrush $4.99 (mine was on sale for $4.49)(**I should have waited to buy this. I have a nagging feeling that there is/will be a coupon out for this thing soon)
–Orajel Kids plaque revealing rinse $5.79
–Nexcare cold sore lip treatment $8.99
Other deal of note: Pert Plus 2-in-1 shampoo is on sale for $3.50. There’s a $2.50 Walgreens rebate, and you can print a $1 off coupon here, making it free! I’ll probably pick up a bottle later this month.
I bought the pads, light bulbs and toothbrush. Also, I bought a 12-count pack of Breathe Right nasal strips for Shane. They were on sale for $5 and there’s a $3 off coupon in the Easy Saver catalog, so it was only $2. Even though it was called a “12-count” pack, there were actually two more strips as a bonus. Yay! I think later this month, I’ll pick up a few more boxes, as we have a snorer in our house. heh.
My total was $9.88, and I paid $1.19 of that with what I had left on my Walgreens gift card. Remaining balance was $8.69 out of pocket, and with the extra 10 percent gift card bonus, I’ll get $8.21 back.
