  • Quick Deal Roundup: 1/7/2013

    I went shopping for a while today, and picked up some great deals, like a year’s supply of dishwasher detergent. Here’s a quick summary of my deals:

    Rite Aid (valid through 1/12/2013):

    Listerine 500 ml 2/$5
    $2/1 Listerine printable, no longer available
    Receive $2 +UP reward WYB 2

    Final price: $1 moneymaker on 2
    (there’s a $1/1 Listerine printable available that will make your cost $1 for 2 bottles; this tracks as part of the Stayfree/Carefree deal)

    Sharpie 3-pack $4.49 & B1G1 Free
    Receive $2 +UP reward WYB 1 (part of Art Skills monthly deal)

    Final price: $0.49 for 2 packs
    (there are 2-packs for $3.19 each & B1G1 Free that will make these an $0.81 moneymaker but my store was out)

    Nivea Lip Balm 2/$5
    Receive $8 +UP Reward WYB $15 select Nivea Products
    $3/2 Nivea Lip Care Product 1/6/2013 RP

    Final price: $2 moneymaker on 6
    (I’ve been rubbing these on papercuts and really dry spots on my hands and feet and it works wonders!)

    Finish Gel Pacs or Powerball Tabs 32-count $7.99 & B1G1 Free
    Receive $3.00 +UP reward WYB $15 select products (monthly deal)
    $2.15/1 Finish Powerball, Gelpacs or Quantum 1/6/2013 SS

    Final price: $8.68 for buying 4 with 2 coupons (per RA coupon policy, you can only use 1 coupon per B1G1 deal; this works out to 6.8 cents/load, which is a phenomenal price – I would have done it again but I didn’t know the limit on the monthly deal, so I used the rest of my coupons at Vons as noted below)

    Note: Rite Aid’s Christmas clearance was up to 75% off at my store.

    Vons/Pavilions (valid through tomorrow, 1/8):

    Hefty Odorblock or Gripper Bags 45-count @ $8.99 each
    personalized just for U price $6.22
    $3 off WYB 2 or more qualifying products
    $1/1 Hefty Waste Bags printable or from 1/6/2013 RP

    Final price: $2.22 each WYB 2 or more (4.9 cents/bag – less than the 7 cents/bag I pay at Costco; the $1/1 coupons beeped, I think because there are so many discounts being applied to one item)

    Finish Gel Pacs or Powerball Tabs 60-count @ $9.99 each
    $3 off WYB 2 or more qualifying products
    $2.15/1 Finish Powerball, Gelpacs or Quantum 1/6/2013 SS

    Final price: $9.68 for 2 (8.1 cents/load, which is also an excellent deal)
