Walgreens 3/9 to 3/15

More "FREE" Jane Make-up!

All Jane make-up is buy one, get one free through Saturday, March 15th. Most items are 4.00 or less. Use the coupon here: to get make-up VERY cheap!

Here's how it works: Print out as many coupons as you want (one per item). Make sure you buy an even number of items. After your cashier gives you the total, give her the most coupons you can (without making the total go below zero). This works because you can use one coupon for each item (even the free ones!). Unless you get more expensive items, you will not be able to use as many coupons as you have items because it will make the total go below zero. Just find out the total, divide it by 2, round down and use that many coupons. (Clear as mud?) I did several transactions for this promo a few weeks ago and all were under $2 total out of pocket!!

Disclaimer: Your cashier may not want to let you use coupons on the free items. The store will get reimbursed for the coupon but if the cashier and the manager don't allow it, just try another store!

My Favorite Grocery Deals 3/5 to 3/11


Frozen Foods Promo

Update: When I went to Bashas' last night, they had a sign up by the ice cream that said, limit one Blue Bunny coupon per transaction. Still, FREE ice cream! Buy 6 for $6, use (1) $1 coupon. Spend $5 out-of-pocket, get a coupon for $5 off your next purchase! If your Bashas will take more of the ice cream coupons then the scenarios below still apply:

Purchase 6 participating products and get a coupon for $5 off your next order. Get a stack of ads at Bashas because all the coupons you need are in the ad!!

First transaction:
Buy 6 Blue Bunny Personals ice cream or gelato (sale $1 each)
use (3) $1 off 2 coupons (in the Basha's ad)
out-of-pocket cost: $3
Get a coupon for $5 off your next purchase! (You just made $2 buying ice cream!)

For each additional transaction, make sure your total is $5 or above so you can use the $5 coupon from the previous transaction. If you do this right, you should have little or no out-of-pocket cost for each subsequent transaction.

Some different options:

  • Buy 6 Pictsweet Vegetables Deluxe Steamers (sale 1.25 each) Use (3) $1 off 2 coupons from Bashas ad. Throw in some gum or any other .50 item. Total will be 5.00. Use your 5.00 coupon from the first transaction to pay for this one. $0 out-of-pocket and another $5 coupon to use on your next transaction!
  • Buy 6 Blue Bunny Personals (use 3 coupons from the ad) and any $2 grocery item. Total will be $5--use your $5 coupon to pay for it and get another $5 coupon!
  • Buy 4 Blue Bunny Personals (use 2 in-ad coupons) and 2 Krusteaz Pancakes or French Toast (sale, 2.50 each, use (1) in-ad coupon for $1 off 2). Final price will be $6, use your $5 off coupon so the total out-of-pocket is $1 for 6 items! (And get another $5 coupon....)
  • Buy 4 Blue Bunny Personals (use 2 in-ad coupons) and 2 Van De Kamp's Fish 18-26 oz family size (sale 3.50 each, use (1) in-ad coupon for $2 off 2). Final cost after $5 coupon is $2 for 6 items.

You can roll these $5 coupons over as many times as you would like and do as many transactions as you want. Just be considerate of the customers behind you in line and those who may come to the store later than you (i.e. don't clear the shelves). Just buy what you have room to store and what you can reasonably use before the expiration date.

Other Bashas freebies:

Arrid Extra Dry Deodorant 1.00 each--use coupon from Feb. 10th to get it for FREE!

Propel Fitness Water 1.00 each--use coupon from Feb. 3rd to get it for FREE!


FREE Cereal and Fiber One Bars

Select General Mills cereal, fruit snacks, and cereal bars: sale 4 for $8, plus $4 off when you buy 4 = 4 for $4!

Fiber One Bars, Total Cereal and Cheerios Cereal printable coupons here: (should be able to print 10 of each coupon!) Coupons will double to $1 and the cereal and Fiber One bars will be FREE! (Split up into multiple transactions, buy 4 in each transaction.)

Also, you can print 2 Honey Nut Cheerios coupons here: Mix these in with the other cereal!

Disclaimer: These printable coupons say, "do not double or triple". Manufacturers sometimes put that on their coupons as a favor to the stores. In reality, it does not change the amount a store will get reimbursed for a coupon. Stores are always paid the face value of the coupon plus a small handling fee. Certain stores offer "double coupons" as a way to entice customers to their store. They are never reimbursed for the doubled amount. Long story short, these coupons will ring up doubled but your cashier MAY manually suppress the doubling. But .50 for a box of cereal is still a great deal!

FREE Sausage

Farmland Breakfast Sausage, sale 1.00 each. Use the $1 off 1 coupon from Jan 6th to get it for FREE!

Tuesday, March 4, 2008

Remember, at Walgreens, you cannot roll over the register rewards into another purchase for the SAME register rewards. (Olay body wash and Herbal Essences are the same deal, both razors are the same deal.) But you CAN buy the bar soap, get $4 register rewards, turn around and buy the razor with your $4 rewards and get the $5 rewards. Then use the $5 rewards on the Herbal Essences and get the $12 register rewards. Make sense? (If not, please post, and I'll try to explain myself more clearly!)
