    I looked for the Bic Crystal pens at the Walgreens off of New Hope Road and New Bern Avenue today. Apparently the store never received these pens. Sigh...I was looking forward to getting these for free using my $1 off 2 manufacturer's coupon. Anyone know of any other Walgreen's stores that have the pens in stock?

    Thanks Nancy!

  • Nancy Aug 6, 2012

    justme - on their website it's listed at $6.49 for the 50 ounce Purex laundry detergent.

  • justme463 Aug 6, 2012

    Anyone know how much the Purex laundry detergent is at CVS? I know it was in the ad for BOGO but wasn't sure of the price.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Aug 6, 2012

    Awesome score on the Scunci hair bands, Nancy!

  • Nancy Aug 5, 2012

    "I found 3 packages that were specially marked B1G1 and had two 18 ct wrapped together and they rang up at the sale price of $2.99, so ended up getting 18 for 99 cents! "

    ugh, that should read, "so ended up getting 36 for 99 cents!"

    Another mentalpause moment :(

    On the CVS Beauty deals and what counts as Beauty, the cashier at the CVS at the corner of Sunset Lake Rd and Holly springs road told me all items in Aisles 1-3 (includes make up, hair/skin care) counts - and it counts on the cumulative Beauty Savings Club deal too. Love CVS :)

  • Dr D Aug 5, 2012

    Yes, awesome deal Penny! It didn't occur to me to try the $5/$15 cosmetic Q for shampoo. I used the $3/$15 beauty Q plus 3 of the $3/2 MQs, so my 6 bottles were $6 then got back the $5 EB. We really like the Dove products. :-)

    Rite Aid has the Scunci hair bands on sale for $2.99 for 18 ct and get $2 +UP rewards back, good enough deal. BUT today I found 3 packages that were specially marked B1G1 and had two 18 ct wrapped together and they rang up at the sale price of $2.99, so ended up getting 18 for 99 cents!

    You can do that Scunci deal 4 times as well. Check for those specially marked double packages, they're scanning on sale and with the +UP rewards.

    Great job on the shampoos Penny!! Thanks for sharing!
