Walgreens is Acting like CVS!

I could not believe the amount of good Register Rewards deals at Walgreens this week. Since we got a CRAPPY CVS ad with only 3 ECB deals in it in my part of Ohio, I had to go get me some deals at Wags! I know, I know! It’s terrible. I was very nervous because half the time their Register Rewards deals seem to not work, but miracle of miracles, this time they all did! I won’t break it down by transaction for you, but I did three transactions and got all this for a PROFIT of $4.50 after Register Rewards! And I put all the out-of-pocket expenses on my Walgreens gift card from last month’s rebates. YAY!

walgreens profited $4.50 in register rewards

Of course I DID get a couple of things at CVS. You know me, I can’t let a Free After ECB item go unbought!
CVS stuff

Cover Girl foundation $5.49
Cover Girl powder $5.49
Milk $2.99
Crayola markers clearance $.49
Dawn Hand Renewal $.99
Total = $15.45
CVS $3/$15
Covergirl BOGO (took ff $5.49) manu q
$1 off Covergirl product manu q
$1 off Dawn manu q (adjusted to 99 cents)
Total = $4.97

I paid with 5 ECB adjusted down to 4.97 and got back 5.79 ECB for the Cover Girl (even though it only cost $5.49! weird huh? But I will take it!)

Later in the week, I found some SWEET clearance deals at CVS!

79 cents each!?!?! yessss!!!
These fabulous fake Crocs were marked down to 79 CENTS EACH!! Joshua has worn these all summer and they are totally fine. Haven’t fallen apart, have been great shoes. So, I got 3 pairs for each of my kids in varying sizes for the next couple of summers! I paid with a $5 ECB adjusted down to $4.74 and paid zero out-of-pocket. YAY!

Then, Thursday I needed milk so I headed to CVS to see if they had any of the freebie October monthly deals in yet (they didn’t! BOO!) I found some Huggies Little Swimmers clearanced to 89 cents and I had $1.50 off coupons! They gave me the overage on them so I only paid $1.77 in ECB (a $2 ECB adjusted down) for this, and paid zero out-of-pocket!

got paid 61 cents each to buy the litte swimmers

So, all in all, it was a pretty good week! Hope you all got some great bargains too! To see how the rest of us crazy coupon ladies did, check out CVS Superstars at the Centsible Sawyer and Super Savings Saturday at Money Saving Mom!

  1. Lucky duck. Our CVS did not have the Hand Renewal on sale for the $.99.

    I don’t know… I might have to break down and give Walgreens a try.

  2. I wonder when my CVS will mark down their Little Swimmers. They have four shelves of them still at 8.99 and there definitely will not be any more swimming days up here (MN). I don’t know what their waiting for, probably for all my coupons to expire, lol.

  3. I know what you mean!! I walked away from WAGS with $13.50 in RR! Not to mention all the FARs… CVS who???

  4. I finally snagged some of the fake crocs on clearance, so I don’t hate you anymore. 😉 I got a pair of 7/8 and 9/10 in pink at the Huber store last night.

    I can’t find any marked down swim diapers though – and I want some. We are members at the YMCA and my mom wants to take B swimming in the indoor pool this winter while I do some much needed cardio.
