Took advantage of three new deals today that came to light Sunday while I was out shopping. The first: Two coupons were printing from the CVS Magic Coupon Machine Sunday (the first of which is printing every day): $10/$30 Gillette shaving purchase, and a $2/1 Venus cartridge. I combined these coupons with a few P&G coupons to get some Venus and Olay products tres cheap!
Second: Turns out the Buy 3 Hallmark cards Receive $3.00 Extra Bucks deal works with the $0.99 cards! Now, it's not supposed to, so this could be fixed at any time. But in the meantime, why not exploit the error and get yourself some free cards!?
Third: There's a $1.00/1 U Kotex Adperk coupon this month that has no size restrictions listed. If you combine this with a $1.00/1 (or combine 2 with a $2.00/2) manufacturer coupon, you get some moneymaker pantiliners! This is even better if you're eligible for a Gold or Silver discount!
Also I picked up some cheap pistachios as a filler to absorb the overage from the pantiliners (Remember: Rite Aid can't give you money back, so you have to buy something else to absorb the difference), and I picked up some relatively cheap bottled water. Not exactly my stockup price (which is $2.50, in case you were wondering), but we were low and it was good enough.
So here's what I did!
Bought 1 Gillette Venus Pro Skin Moisture Rich Razor, 1 ct $13.49, regular price
Bought 1 Gillette Venus Pro Skin Moisture Rich Razor Cartridges, 4 ct $16.99, regular price
Bought 1 Olay Body Wash, 18 oz $7.49, regular price
Used 1 FREE Olay Bar, Body Wash or In-Shower Lotion, when you buy (1) Gillette Venus Refill from PG 6/3
And used 1 FREE Gillette Venus Razor up to $12.99, when you buy (1) Cartridge from PG 6/3
And used 1 $2.00/1 Venus Razor or Refill, excludes trial/travel sizes from PG 5/13
And used 1 $2.00/1 any Gillette Fusion or Venus Cartridge Refill CVS coupon from Magic Coupon Machine
And used 1 $10/$30 Gillette Shave Purchase CVS coupon from Magic Coupon Machine
Final Price: $3.49 ($1.16 each) for all 3 items
Bought 3 Hallmark Greeting Cards $0.99 each, regular price
Buy 3, Receive $3.00 Extra Bucks, Limit 1
Paid $1.98, Received $3.00 Extra Bucks
Final Price: $1.02 MONEYMAKER
Okay, so apparently this coupon isn't actually a manufacturer coupon but can only be used in Hallmark stores. Also, I had a B3G1 Free CVS coupon that printed from the Magic Coupon Machine awhile back that would have not only given me another free card but would have taken off a whopping $2.50 from my total. Except I completely forgot about it. Le sigh. Let's just call this a learning experience and move on, shall we?
