CVS Deals 7.20 - 7.26

FREE paper towels at CVS this week! Just scan your store loyalty card at the Magic Coupon Machine and you'll receive a $0.79/1 coupon for Just the Basics single roll. They're on sale for $0.79 each, making them free!

Side note: A coupon fairy left her $0.79/1 coupon by the Magic Coupon Machine. I assumed that since the last four digits of the rewards card number is printed on the coupon, that it would only be valid if the reward card holder used it. HOWEVER, since I was unsure of the policy, I brought two rolls of paper towels up to the register and asked. Never hurts to ask, right? The cashier wasn't sure either and tried to ring it through. It didn't work... but she honored it anyway! I'm sure this varies by store, but it's worth trying. So today, I got two rolls of paper towels for free :)

I plan to pick up some other moneymakers later this week, but before I left, I took a gander through the aisles and look what I came across in the medicine aisle:


Some of my favorite cold remedies marked down to 75% off! I scooped up a 2-pack liquid form of NyQuil (my hubby's and my favorite cold remedy - and the last one on the shelf!) for just $4.74 (originally $18.99). I didn't have a coupon for it, but if you plan ahead, you can stack it with the clearance price!

Got kids? Dimetapp Kids Cough Syrup is also 75%. Plus, there are $1.00/1 peelie coupons attached to some packages. That brings your total from $7.99 to $1.99, plus an extra $1.00/1... that's just $0.99! Doesn't get much better than that. 

There are several other items on clearance including cough drops and other cold remedies. Never hurts to plan ahead for fall and back-to-school. Just be sure to check the expiration date before heading to the register.

I left the store spending just $5.73 for $29.36 in product! That's an 80% savings :)

Ends Today! Famous Footwear's Clearance Event!


So. My dear friend is getting married next month, and I've been searching for gray shoes to go with my bridesmaid dress all week. No luck. Until today!

Famous Footwear is having their Semi-Annual Clearance Event (ends today!), giving customers BOGO50% on all CLEARANCE!* Prices are already slashed, but they're giving you an extra 50% off your second clearance pair of equal or lesser value.

Needless to say, I couldn't resist. I purchased a pair of gray heels on clearance and a pair of nude heels, because, well, every wardrobe needs a pair of nude heels, right? And the price couldn't have been sweeter. The breakdown is to the right ---->

Two pairs of shoes valued at $119.98 for only $27 shipped! Heck yes! That's a $97.48 savings!

You'll notice that I got an additional $5.00 off by applying a promo code. Just sign up for emails on the homepage and keep refreshing your email until you get a unique promo code. It's like getting free shipping and then some!

Click the banner above and start shopping :)


*Some exclusions apply. Excludes accessories.

Milk Coupon!

We all know there aren't many opportunities to save on milk. And when there are, you're limited to a brand and size, and flavors are out of the question.

Not any more! Snag this coupon while it lasts! It's for $1.00 milk, any flavor, any size, any brand when you buy two Kellogg's cereals (8.7 oz or larger).

This coupon was too good not to share. :)

Market Basket Coupon Matchups 06.01 - 06.07

Below are a handful of several coupon matchups that I thought were worthwhile to share. Some I discovered in store and they were not mentioned in other coupon blogs - so spread the word! I have also calculated the additional 4% you'll receive off each item. That 4% really adds up!

Here we go:

Turkey Hill Ice Cream, 48oz.
On sale for $2.50
Plus 4% off = $2.40
Buy two, use $1.00/1 coupon = $1.40

Colgate Total
On sale for $2.00
Plus 4% off = $1.92
Buy one, use $1.00/1 coupon = $0.92

Downy, 103oz.

Plus 4% off = $7.67
Buy two, use $3.00/2 coupon = $12.34 (or $6.17 each)

So Delicious Coconut Yogurt, 6oz. Pkg
On sale for $0.99
Plus 4% off = $0.95
Buy one, use $1.00/1 coupon = FREE (Keep in mind this that Market Basket will take $0.99 off, not the full value of the coupon.)

Polar 2L Bottles
On sale 5/$5.00
Plus 4% off = $0.96
Buy four, use $1.00/4 = $2.84 (or $0.71 each)

Vitalicious Muffin Tops
On sale for $2.99

Buy one, use $1.00/1 coupon = $1.87 (P.S. These are in the frozen foods section!)

Hunts Snack Pack, 4pk.
On sale for $0.99
Plus 4% off = $0.95
Buy three, use $0.75/3 coupon = $2.10 (or $0.70 each)

Freshetta Frozen Pizza
On sale for $4.50
Plus 4% off = $4.35
Buy two, use $1.25/2 coupon = $7.45 (or ~ $3.73 each)
A note: There is also a $1.00/1 coupon in store on the freezer door if you cannot find the online printable.

Hatfield Ham Steak
On sale for $2.19
Buy one, use $2.00/1 coupon on Bourbon BBQ Hatfield Ham Steak = $0.19 (Thanks YesWeCoupon! Search under 07730 Zip Code.)
A note: My store did not have this variety in stock.

Pepperidge Farm Swirl Breads
On sale 2/$5.00
Plus 4% off = $2.40
Buy two, use $1.00/2 coupon and get $0.25 back from Checkout51 = $3.30 (or $1.65 each)

Tostitos, Doritos and Lays Party Size Bags
On sale 2/$6.00 (The sign will say 2/$3.00 WITH COUPON)
Plus 4% off = $2.88 each
A note: The coupon that is stuck to the bag essentially says, “Buy two Tostitos and get a Tostitos salsa for free.” However, if you buy two bags and bring this to the register, they will deduct $3.00 to bring the total for each bag to $1.50 (the sale price "with coupon" advertised on the sign). Don’t do what I did and buy the salsa! The cashier deducted $3.00 as she should have, and I mistakenly told her that the salsa was only $1.99 and that she had deducted too much. She adjusted the sale and I later learned I paid $3.00 for each bag! I thought the sale price was the sale price and that the coupon was the cherry on top. Don’t make this mistake! With the extra 4% off, you could get both bags for $2.76 (or $1.38 each). Stock up!
  



Sticky Finger BBQ Sauce
Regularly 2/$4.00
Plus 4% off = $1.92
Buy two, use $1.00/2 coupon = $2.84 (or $1.42 each)

Any other deals I missed that are worth mentioning?
