    Thanks for the links Raleighcitizen!

    Hi Jenna - When I bought the Wisk on Sunday it was $8.99 regular price. I bought 2, used 2 coupons for $3 off 1 (yes, you can use a coupon on each BOGO item at CVS)and paid $2.99 for 2 ($1.50 each). Well, actually, I paid nothing because I used ECB's from last week and a CVS gift card from cashing in credit card points. It's a better deal at CVS because the price of each one is $1.50 after BOGO and coupons vs Walgreens which is $1.99 each after sale, RR and coupons. Hoep that helps - happy laundry!

  • jennawoodell Sep 7, 2010

    oh one more thing - sorry. I have multiple Wisk coupons - can I use more than one if I buy more than one - esp. with the bogo - it would be free!

  • jennawoodell Sep 7, 2010

    What is the price for CVS Wisk? I am trying to figure out if it is better to go to CVS or Walgreens to get them. With Cvs - reg price is $8.50 - $3 Q + BOGO would make them $2.75 each. With Walgreens it's on sale for $6.99 - $2 RR - $3Q is like paying $2 for one. Hmmm - I guess Walgreens is better if CVS doesn't have a sale price.

    BTW - you are awesome! Thanks a bunch for all your hard work on posting deals.

  • Oxymoron02 Sep 7, 2010

    Visit to print a $2 off 2 oz or larger Biotrue coupon to turn the RiteAid deal into a moneymaker. :)

  • Oxymoron02 Sep 7, 2010

    If you haven't hit CVS yet for cereal, you should. My Mom and I both scanned our CVS cards at that kiosk in front (Mom on Sunday, me on Monday), and it's printing $3 off $10 in groceries coupons. 4 boxes of Kelloggs cereal (the limit) is just over $7, so add on whatever foodstuffs you like (I added Sobe's that I had BOGO coupons for) to hit $10 for no more money than you'd already planned to spend (or less money, if your Sobe's were free).

    And if you visit Johnson's website (, you can print $1 off 1, $2 off 2 and $3 off 3 coupons for a lot of the Johnson's baby stuff at CVS. It would only let me print one of each per computer, luckily we're not a 1 computer household. I was able to print and use enough of those coupons to get $10 off 10 items. After ECBs back I paid $5 plus tax for 10 assorted containers of Johnson's baby products and Desitin (I'm due in November, excellent timing on this sale). :)
