    i see. thanks for the input!

    well if you want to get the ecb then the cvs deal is better (2.33 each versus 2.51 each at HT) especially if you have some ecb to use to lower your out of pocket on those. For out of pocket cost alone, HT is better. You just don't get the coupon to lower out of pocket costs later.

    Harris Teeter has 12 pack can pepsi on sale: buy 2 get 3 free (retailing at $6.29/each). I am trying to figure out if this is a better deal than CVS... any help? I am not brand specific for Coke or Pepsi and don't have a coupon.

  • lcsYeah Jan 30, 2011

    never mind. just got to the rite aid deals. :)

    Is the Gillette Fusion Razor sale not a good deal? I'm not sure how much those things costs regularly. I have a $4 and $2 coupon for the razor and cartridge.

    You really shouldn't beat yourself up over .25, momboozer. My sanity is worth way more than .25 if it keeps me from having to go to all the stores every week. If the Tilex was the same at Target, than you were only out .25 for the Clean and Clear. You definitely could have done worse at many other stores, so I think you did just fine. In the end, you will probably roll the $5 ECB's into another item you buy so your actual out of pocket is only .25 more.

    I'll have the other drug store deals up later this afternoon.

    I was disappointed in my CVS buys last week. Did the Clean and Clear deal, with (3) $2/each coupons plus $5 ECB. Went to Target tonight and could have used just my coupons and done $.25 better. The only saving grace is that I know these go on my Beauty Plan $$ so I will get some back on it.

    Also, Tilex 2/$4 with (2) $1 coupons. It was just as cheap to purchase at Target on this also. It gets frustrating to try and keep up with so much.

    Huzzah! A decent deal on Zegerid! Now if there were an awesome deal to be had on Tums too I might make my husband's week!
