Drug store deals 5-23

Posted May 24, 2010

Sorry for posting the deals a day later than usual. I had a great time meeting folks at the WRAL booth at the Wellness Weekend yesterday but had no time to work on the drug store deals.  There are some great deals this week at Walgreen's using the register rewards and coupons including Goody hair clips and Complete contact solution (I really can't remember the last time I actually paid for contact solution with all the great rebates the stores offer!). CVS has a few good freebies and the Rite Aid ad has 2 coupons for $25 gift cards when you transfer a prescription.  All the links to the printable coupons are in the box to the left. Enjoy!

    Walgreens also has Huggies Little Swimmers swim diapers for $4.99. 6.99 - 2.00 in store coupon. This was a little confusing to me b/c I thought it would automatically ring up that way, but there is a coupon book at the register that has the coupon to be scanned. This is a MQ, so you can't use your own coupons on top of this savings...I tried. Still a good price though

  • j3434 May 24, 2010

    Save $10 after mail-in rebate off the purchase of $15 of total basket items, excludes tobacco, gift cards, and Rx's. You are to send in the rebate certificate and original dated, store-identified cash register receipt(s) with $15 total basket purchases circled. I went with the safe bet of after Q's myself...I even got $14.94 on the first trip (subtotal after Q's, before tax) and decided to go ahead and pick up one more thing I had forgotten anyway just in case. Everything I got was sale or Q items anyway.

    Dkg - there is no Walgreens card available so you don't need one. The register rewards print out of a coupon machine like the ones in the grocery stores. They are not attached to your receipt like those from CVS.

    Boomer - Not sure of the wording since I don't have the rebate form yet. J - did it specify after coupon total? I am guessing that as long as your total receipt is at least $15.00 paid, you can get the rebate. If you try to send in a receipt with a $5 total after coupons, you will probably not get the rebate.

    Is the rebate for net $15 after coupons. Thanks

  • dkg0502 May 24, 2010

    For Walgreen's do you have to have a Walgreens card to get the register reward at the bottom of your receipt?

  • j3434 May 24, 2010

    Morning, Faye! I got the Walgreen's rebate form last night. At the 40/42 Walgreen's, what you had to do was buy your $15 worth of stuff, then the cashier hands you the rebate from a tear-off they have behind the counter. Surprising methods...but mine's going in the mail today! Thanks for all the info!
