Walgreen's Oct 5 - Oct 11 sale

First you need to look at the above picture then come back here and read the details.

Okay I know it doesn't look like alot but for $3.24 I personally think it was awesome!

I am going to go over how I got these items for this price, keep in mind that I am in an area where the paper comes out on Thursday for the following week so the local Walgreens honors next week sale prices a few days early. This allowed me to use the $5/$20 coupon that is good only on Oct. 4th and Oct. 5th.

First the abbreviations:
c = coupon
ivc = instant coupon from the easysaver book
ic = internet coupon

Garnier Shampoo + styler = $2.99 - $1 c = $1.99
Oral B toothbrush = $1.99 - $1 ivc - .75 = .24
Crest toothpaste = $1.99 - $1 ivc - $1 = $0
Glade candle = $3.99 - $2 c = $1.99
Hershey candy bogo c, buy milk chocolate get the dark chocolate free - x2 = .50 + .50 - .79 - .79 = -.59
Oxy cleansing pads x4 (in store bogo sale = 4.99 -$0-$4.99- $1 c- $1c =
Newspaper = .50
used walgreens coupon = $5/$20
used register rewards coupon = $2
TOTAL : $8.69 - $5.45 refund = $3.24 oop

I forgot to give them a coupon for buy two get one free on the Oxy so they refunded me $5.45, making my out of pocket total $3.24! Total savings of $36.76! (The B2G1 was obtained at, just go under the Walgreens/CVS deals forum, look for the Walgreens sales info for Oct 5th - Oct. 11th, and then look for post containing the coupon)

I also got a $1 coupon with the garnier shampoo. Just to let you know they have the shampoo on the shelf but if you head to the beauty department you can get a 24 oz bottle of the shampoo or conditioner with a free styler attached for the same price as the others.

Good luck. Send me replies back and let me know how you do!


  1. Isn't it funny when you start saying "I know it doesn't look like a lot for 3.24..."

    LOL! You should post the regular retail price! *Someone* paid regular price out there...

  2. I considered putting my total on the blog but it was so confusing because of the unused coupon that I got credit for that I was having a hard time figuring up the total savings! Maybe next time won't be so hard. I like the it though.
