  • Top Ten Best Deals This Week: 6/3/2013

    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 Toothbrushes at Ralphs

    I haven’t received my advance copy of the new sales at Ralphs, but I’m going off previous experience to guess that $1 Oral B toothbrush deal will continues through 6/11:

    Buy: 2 Oral B Indicator Toothbrushes @ $1 each
    Use: $1/2 Oral B Indicator or Cavity Defense Toothbrushes from 6/2 P&G insert (exp 06/30/2013)
    Pay: $1
    Net Price: $0.50 each

    If the toothbrushes stay $1, the Crest toothpaste for $1 deal should also continue, so get a tube for $0.50 when you use the $0.50/1 Crest Toothpaste, Oral B Floss or Crest Rinse coupon, also from the 6/2 P&G insert.

    May end 6/4, hopefully not until 6/11.

    2. Cheap Scunci Elastics at Walgreens

    Buy: Scunci Elastics @ $2.99
    Pay: $2.99
    Receive: $2 Register Reward
    Net Price: $0.99

    Sometimes these are free after store rewards, but it’s been a while since we’ve seen that deal. If you are running low, this is a great stock-up price.

    Ends 6/8.

    3. Moneymaker on Sundown at Walgreens

    Buy: Sundown Omega 3 Fish @ $7
    Use: $1/1 Sundown Naturals Vitamin or Supplement from 5/5 Red Plum {expires 6/4!}
    Pay: $6
    Receive: $7 Register Reward
    Net Price: $1 moneymaker

    Sale ends 6/8 but note coupon expires 6/4.

    4. Free Garnier Hair Care at Rite Aid

    Buy: 1 Garnier Fructis Volume Extend or Hydra Recharge Shampoo or Conditioner @ $2.99
    Use: $1/1 Garnier Fructis Shampoo, Conditioner, or Treatment from 6/2 Red Plum
    And use: $2/1 Garnier Fructis Volume Extend or Hydra Recharge Rite Aid Facebook printable
    Pay: $0

    Ends 6/8.

    5. Cheap Head & Shoulders at Rite Aid

    There is a new monthly +UP reward offer on Head & Shoulders that makes for cheap Head & Shoulders:

    Buy: Head & Shoulders 2-in-1 Deep Clean Shampoo @ $6.29
    Use: $2/1 Head & Shoulders Product from 6/2 P&G insert
    Pay: $4.29
    Receive: $3 +UP reward
    Net Price: $1.29

    If you are a regular Rite Aid shopper who has the 20% off Gold Wellness+ Discount, your net price will be just 4 cents!

    I’ve also seen reports that you can get Head & Shoulders for under $1 at Walmart after coupon.

    Rite Aid deal ends 6/29.

    6. Free Almay Eyeshadow at Target

    There was a high-value Almay coupon in yesterday’s paper, and you can use it to get free eyeshadow at Target:

    Buy: Almay i-color Eye Shadow Powder or Stick @ $4.99 {may be higher at some stores}
    Use: $4/1 Almay Cosmetic from 6/1 Smart Source
    And use: $1/1 Almay Intense i-color Cosmetics Target Web Coupon
    Pay: $0

    The $4/1 Almay coupon has a short expiration date of 6/16, so use it while you can!

    Ends 6/8. Thanks to Totally Target for this deal!

    7. Cheap Secret Clinical at CVS

    It’s extremely rare {like once a year or less rare} to find name-brand clinical deodorant for the same price as “regular” deodorant, so this is a particularly good deal at CVS:

    Buy: Secret Clinical Deodorant @ $4
    Use: $3/1 Secret Clinical Deodorant from 5/19 Smart Source
    Pay: $1

    Ends? Thanks to Southern Cali Saver for this deal!

    8. $20 off Kindle Fire HD

    Through June 8, Amazon is offering $20 off the Kindle Fire HD, Kindle Fire HD 8.9″, or Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ 4G when you use the promotional code DADSFIRE at checkout. That makes the Kindle Fire HD 16 GB With Special Offers just $179!

    9. Cheap Puffs Tissue at CVS

    I’m making an exception to my “not too many coupons” curating of the weekly Best Deals, and including this scenario, which I did at CVS this morning. We’ve been going through a ton of tissue due to allergies, and I was down to just four unopened boxes (which would last less than a week at the rate we’ve been using tissue). The thing about this scenario is that the coupons are actually low-value, so you can get a great deal even if you only have a couple of coupons, or none at all:

    Buy: 20 boxes of Puffs Tissue @ $0.99 each
    Use: 4 x $0.25/3 Puffs Tissue from 5/12 P&G insert
    And use 2 x $0.25/3 Puffs Tissue from 6/2 P&G insert
    Pay: $18.30
    Receive: $5 ECB
    Net Price: $0.67 each

    There is a limit of 4 like P&G coupons, but the 5/12 and 6/2 coupons have different bar codes so I did not consider them all “like” coupons. None of them would scan so the cashier did have to manually enter them for me (I was at self-checkout, and none of the P&G coupons ever seem to scan there).

    Ends 6/8.

    10. Moneymaker on Tena Pads at CVS

    I don’t know how many of you will find this item useful, but it’s a slight moneymaker and can help roll over any expiring ECBs at CVS:

    Buy: Tena Pads, 10–30 ct or Liners, 26–44 ct @ $3.79
    Use: $1/1 Tena Product from 4/14 Smart Source or printable
    Pay: $2.79
    Receive: $3 ECB
    Net Price: $0.21 moneymaker

    Ends 6/8.
