Walgreens :: Super Sweet Dove Moneymaker!

As you may remember from my weekly Walgreens matchup deals, Dove Hair Care products are on sale this week for $4 with a $4 RR. Well, today at my Walgreens, I found the 12oz. older packaging of the Dove Go Fresh Cool Moisture Conditioner on clearance for $2.59. I had a $1.50 Dove peelie coupon, so I thought that I would take the gamble to see if it printed thE $4RR! Well, it did! So, I paid $1.38 OOP, and received back a $4 RR! Even without a manuf. coupon, it is still a money maker deal! 

 Also, remember that if there is not a clearance price in front of the product, to have the cashier price check it for you! Many times I have found super sweet deals this way! Hope you can find this! 🙂

CVS :: *HOT* Deal on Stayfree Pads!

As you may know from my previous post, there is a monthly Stayfree/Carefree deal going on right now at CVS. Buy one package of Stayfree or Carefree pads (14-24 ct) or Pantiliners (38-60 ct) and receive back $2 ECB (limit 4) 

There was a BOGO Stayfree coupon in the 1/3 RP. In yesterday’s (3/28) RP there was a $2/1 Stayfree coupon! You can make this deal a moneymaker with the following scenario:

Buy 4 packs of Stayfree Pads @ $3.89 each (that is the price at my store, may be higher or lower elsewehre) (FYI-the only ones that I have found to work for the deal are the Classic 24 count pack)

Use 2 BOGO coupons from the 1/3 RP + 2 $2/1 coupons from yesterday’s (3/28) RP

Pay $3.78 OOP and receive back an $8 ECB!

This is a great moneymaker deal if you have not already done the deal and have the corresponding coupons! Remember though, this is a March ECB deal, so you will want to do it in the next couple of days!

(thanks, Smart Couponing)

Target :: Snuggle Fabric Softener only .99!

Did you receive the high-value Snuggle Fabric Softener coupon in your inserts yesterday? If you received that super sweet $3 coupon, then you may want to head over to Target! Snuggle Liquid Fabric Softener (32 load) is regularly priced at $3.99 each, so you can score a bottle for only .99! If you prefer the Snuggle Fabric Softener Sheets, the 70 count box is regularly priced at $4.14, so with the $3 coupon, they would only be $1.14 per box!  

Also, I remember from the last time this coupon was in inserts, that Family Dollar has the Snuggle Fabric Softener for $3, so you can score it for FREE there with the $3 coupon! I am going to try to check the Family Dollar near me tomorrow, to see if they have any!
