  • Top Ten Best Deals This Week: 6/24/2013

    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. Cheap Coppertone Sunscreen at Target

    We got a high-value coupon in yesterday’s newspaper that makes for a great deal on Coppertone sunscreen this week:

    2. Cheap Coppertone at CVS

    If you don’t have a convenient Target store, you can get cheap sunscreen at CVS this week:

    Buy: 2 Coppertone Sunscreen at $9.99 each
    Use: $5/2 Coppertone Products from 6/23 Smart Source
    Pay: $14.98

    Also at CVS, you can get a free Venus razor:

    Buy: 1 Gillette Venus Razor @ $6.99 {prices may vary somewhat by store}
    Use: $5/1 Venus Razor from 6/16 Red Plum
    Pay: $1.99
    Receive: $4 ECB

    4. Free Venus Razors at Ralphs

    Through tomorrow, Venus razors are part of the Buy 4, Get $4 off Sale at Ralphs. Since you need to purchase 4 participating items for the deal, the Venus razors can be a great way to round out your 4 items, even if you don’t have 4 $5/1 coupons. The razors are priced at $5.99, and come down to $4.99 after discount – so I’m hoping the coupon won’t beep and need to be adjusted.

    Ends 6/25.

    5. Free Copy Paper at Staples

    Staples has some great offers this week, including free-after-rebate printer paper:
