  • The Drugstore Game: My CVS deal this week

    Just a heads up, there’s no Morning Coffee post today – I have too much else to talk about! Obviously, I found some deals I couldn’t resist posting! :)

    I’ll have an update from Nicole, our Drugstore Game Padawan, tomorrow. In the meantime, I managed to hit CVS yesterday to get myself some almost free paper towels:

    1 Bounty 6 roll $6.88
    1 SoyJoy 6-pack $6
    2 Oust $3.99 each

    Coupons used: $5 off $20 purchase printable coupon (no longer available), 25 cents/1 Bounty from 12/27 P&G, B1G1 Oust from 1/3 SS, $4 and $6 ECBs (plus I remembered to scan my Green Bag tag at self-checkout)

    Paid: $2.72 including tax

    Received: $6 ECB SoyJoy and $6 ECB Oust

    Oddly, the Oust deal is noted on my receipt under Glade, as noted at I Heart CVS. I may go back to CVS to repeat the SoyJoy and Oust/Glade deals later this week, especially since the SoyJoy bars will be good to send via

    Speaking of AnySoldier, I saw a request for odor neutralizers and I’d love to send my free cans of Oust over there. Their forum archive suggests that pressurized cans can be sent, but I think I’ll call the USPS to see what the official rules are.
