Pharmacy Recap- CVS and Rite Aid- March 1- March 7 Deals

Total Out Of Pocket $3.51

How did you all do at CVS and Rite Aid this week?

Thanks to Home Economista B’s post last Saturday entitled Shopping Suggestions Saturday I was able to discover some good deals at CVS for the upcoming week.  I decided to skip Rite Aid this week.

I got $51.51 worth of items for $3.51 and received 1 Free 6 Roll Package of Charmin Ultrasoft toilet paper and $5.00 Extra Bucks for buying the two pampers and $4.00 Extra Bucks for buying the Gillette razor.

See below for a detailed list showing my transaction. Note- the big question I had this week was whether I would be able to use a $1.00 Charmin coupon to reduce my total bill (I was going to be getting Charmin toilet paper for free as a result of buying $20.00 worth of Bounty towels). When I got to the cashier, I explained my question.  I was told that CVS would take my Charmin coupon

Here is how my shopping trip worked out.
1 Pampers Ez Up 26Ct $10.00
1 Pampers Ez Up 26Ct $10.00
1 Gilette Fusion Gamer $7.99

Total: $3.51

There is still time to go shopping… the current flyer expires Saturday.  If CVS is out of an item when you go, ask for a raincheck that reflects the Extra Bucks earned or the free item.  Unless the flyer says no rainchecks (which it did last week with the Viva paper towels) you will be able to receive a raincheck.  You will be glad to have this raincheck when the items are back to their regular price.

Pharmacy Wrap Up- CVS and Rite Aid Saturday 2/28

How did you all do at CVS and Rite Aid this week?

I was hoping to get some Viva Paper Towels at CVS but they were sold out. So- I got some Revlon makeup and also some Maybelline items. I need some foundation and have decided, in the name of being a Recessionista, to try out some drugstore brands. My regular brand is Paula Dorf- which I love, but, it will be a nice experiment. I will let you all know how it works in a review- coming soon.

Here is what I got at CVS. Rite Aid Follows.

1 Revlon Beyond Natural Concealer $9.99
1 Revlon Beyond Natural Skin Matching Foundation $12.99

Here is how I did at Rite Aid
I had gotten some Garnier Fructis shampoo which I am using and liking so i ran in to get the Garnier Fructis Conditioner. I discovered a bunch of coupons thanks to Home Economista B (who had given me a stash of those she didn’t want as I have been too busy to do coupons recently) and the coupons made the Rite Aid deal even better than it would otherwise have been.
