    Best Deals of the Week
    I’ve compiled best deals available at the drugstores, Target, Ralphs/Kroger, and other stores. I stick to deals that don’t require too many or any obscure coupons, and I try to pick practical items that most people buy at some point.

    Use this list to decide which stores to hit this week, based on what you need. You might even use it to decide you can skip shopping for a week, because you don’t need what’s on sale. Please note this post contains affiliate links that help support this site at no additional cost to you. Thank you for using them! You can read CFO’s full disclosure here.

    1. Better-than-Free Yes To Facial Masks at Target

    Target has a new gift card deal: Buy 2 participating Yes To skincare products and get a free $5 Target gift card. As of right now, the deal includes single facial masks packets, which I found priced at $1.99 each and tagged as included in the sale. I don’t know how long this deal will last, and the register did not prompt the cashier to give me the gift card. I had to call it to her attention, and she had to call over her manager, who confirmed the deal and gave me a $5 discount at the register instead of giving me the gift card. (Which worked out even better for me because I didn’t have to pay tax.)

    Buy: 2 Yes To Facial Masks @ $1.99 each
    Pay: $3.98
    Receive: $5 Target gift card
    Net Price: $1.02 moneymaker

    My store was out of Yes To Cucumbers masks, but had plenty of Yes to Tomatoes.

    Ends 6/22 (or until they decide to remove the shelf tags for the masks).

    Update: Totally Target explains that the register doesn’t (and isn’t supposed to) prompt for a gift card with two facial masks because the total isn’t over $5; instead, use the masks as a filler with a more expensive item to get you over the $5 mark.

    2. Cereal for as low as $0.24 each at Target

    Target has another gift card deal for a free $5 Target gift card when you buy 4 participating cereals. If you have Kellogg’s Family Rewards points and can get four of the $1.50/1 any Kellogg’s cereal coupons, you can get four boxes of select Kellogg’s cereal for just $0.24 each – that’s the very best scenario for this offer. However, there are a number of ways to get cereal for less than $1 per box, which is a fantastic price. Here’s a list of the included cereals, along with any available coupons (my store was already sold out of some varieties, so you may want to go first thing in the morning):

    3. Cheap Cereal & Milk at Rite Aid

    You can also get cheap cereal + milk at Rite Aid this week, because there’s a Catalina deal for FREE Milk when you buy any 3 Kellogg’s Cereals, and several varieties are on sale for $1.97:

    Buy: 3 Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes, Rice Krispies, Froot Loops, Apple Jacks, Corn Pops, Corn Flakes or Raisin Bran Original @ $1.97 ea
    Use: 3 x $1.50/1 any Kellogg’s Cereal Kellogg’s Family Rewards printable {1,000 points}
    Pay: $1.41
    Receive: Catalina coupon for FREE Gallon of Milk {up to $4}
    Net Price: $0.47 each + Free Milk

    Note that not all Rite Aid stores have Catalina machines, but stores have reportedly been adding them so it’s worth checking. Even without the free milk offer, the cereal is a great price. If you don’t have enough Kellogg’s Family Rewards Points, here are some other coupons you can use:
    $1/2 select Kellogg’s Cereals, including Rice Krispies, Corn Flakes and Raisin Bran Cereals Kellogg’s Family Rewards free printable

    Ends 6/22.

    5. Cheap Right Guard Deodorant at Walgreens

    9. Free Photo Paper at Staples
