Drugstore Deals for May 9-15

My hubby just surprised me with a dozen white roses. So so pretty. I love Mother's Day. Hope all you moms are enjoying this day. Not really a day off for me but at least we have cake (lemon, and I didn't have to frost it!)

We only got one Smart Source insert this week, and our region did not get the $5 off 1 Shcick Hydro Razor. Which is too bad because Target released a $1/1 coupon perfect for the Target $5 GC deal. Plus, my Wal-Mart didn't have FREE inserts at Customer Service and I wasn't about to buy a paper that was missing the only coupon I needed. Oh, well. It just forces me to take a break from coupon clipping this Mother's Day.

There are lots of items on price cuts every week besides the Target GC deals and weekly match-ups. I try to visit Totally Target a couple times a week because that gal is just super! with the Target deals.

If you have the Schick $5 Q, please do this deal for me:
FREE $5 Gift Card wyb 2 Schick Hydro 5 Blade Razor $7.99
Buy 2 use these Qs:
-two $5/1 from 5-9 SS
-two $1/1 Target Store Coupon PRINT
Pay $3.98 out of pocket, get $5 gift card
= $1.02 overage after Gift Card!

Other deals to note:
1 lb Strawberries, $1.49
Lean Ground Beef, $1.99/lb
Keebler Wheatables Nut Crisps or Crackers, $1.99(Use $1.50 PRINT = only $0.49!)Walgreens has a few freebies. Nice as they are, I might skip them. I'm terrible at cashing in my Register Rewards. Thanks for the match-ups, I Heart Wags!

Buy EOS Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream for $2.99
Get $2.99 RRs back

Buy Schick Hydro for $7.99, Get $5 RR
Use $5 Q from 5/9 SS
Pay $2.99, get $5 RR
=$2 money maker!
Plus, the RR is reportedly rolling!

The two above would make for easy $5 Wags Challenge. Plus you'd need a small filler item for the second transaction because you need the same or less number of manuf coupons for the number of items you have.

First buy EOS Shave Cream for $2.99 & get $2.99 RR

Second transaction: Buy Schick Hydro, $7.99
For filler item, buy $0.39 candy
Use $2.99 RR from #1 & $5 Q from 5/9 SS
Pay $0.39! Get $5 RR

Total: Paid $3.38 out of pocket, got $5 RR left!

If you are planning to shop CVS this week, take note of the few money makers. For some reason, though, our ad prices are more expensive on some items like Right Guard. But it's still comes out FREE with a small kickback so we just take what we can! Thanks to I Heart CVS for coupon match-ups!
Here's my shopping list:
Buy U by Kotex for $4.99, Get $4.99 ECBs, Limit 1
(Use $1 CVS Q and $1 PRINT or April All You = $1 overage)

Buy Right Guard Total Defense for $2.99, Get $2 ECBs, Limit 2
(Buy 2, use $3/2 PRINT= $1 overage!)

Buy Crest Pro Health toothpaste or rinse for $3.50, Get $3.50 ECBs, Limit 2
(Buy 2, use two $0.75 from 5/2 PG= $1.50 overage)

Buy 1 Gallon Milk for $3.69, Get $1 ECB, Limit 2
(Great way to roll over ECBs for something you will truly use!)

Buy Bayer Breeze 2 for $19.99 (starting price), Get $15 ECBs
(use $10 Q from 4/25 RP- regional Q = $5 overage!)

Buy Schick Hydro razor for $8.99, Get $4.99 ECB, Limit 1
(Use $5 from 5/9 SS = FREE - but our area didn't get this Q!)

The $5 CVS Challenge is a great way to get started. It shows how, even if you only have $5, you can roll over your ECBs in different transactions and come away with a lot more bang for your buck!
First Transaction:
Buy U By Kotex, $4.99
-$1 CVS Q and $1 PRINT
Pay $2.99, get $4.99 ECBs back

Second Transaction:
Buy 2 Right Guard TD, $2.99 x 2
-$3 off 2 PRINT

All in all, you'll spend $4.96 and get $8.49 ECBs. You don't even have to stop there. You could keep going and stock-up on all the other great deals.


  1. Thanks Anna...I really enjoy the simplified breakdown of these deals! Luckily I grabbed a Mobile paper today cos my newspaper guy failed to deliver my PNJ so I did get the schick razor Q! ☺ (doin' the "happy dance") ha ha

  2. You know, I even tried buying it online and ebay is selling 20 Qs for $8.50! My regular clipping service is of course out of stock. Next time, I'm checking out the Mobile paper. I think they sell them at Publix, too.

  3. Anna... you can get the Mobile paper @ Greers in the outside coin machine.(that is where I got mine) Shcick deal IS rolling...just got TWO today ☺ LOVE IT!! I also got FREE Olay facial cleansers from Publix stacking 2.00 store Q (Live Well Feel Beautiful) with the 2.00 MQ from PG either 5/2 OR 5/9 (on the back page)

  4. how do you get a mobile paper?
