  • Top Five Best Deals This Week: 8/4/2013

    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.

    1. Back to School Deals at Staples

    This week at Staples, you can get filler paper for $0.01 with a $5 purchase, 5-packs of mechanical pencils for $0.25, free-after-rebate pens, copy paper, and photo paper, and free-after-coupon dry erase markers. Get the details.

    Ends 8/10.

    2. Cheap Up & Up Crayons at Target

    24-count packs of Up & Up crayons are just $0.25 this week at Target. But to make the deal even better, there is a printable Target coupon for a FREE pack of crayons when you buy 2. So you can get 3 packs of crayons for $0.50, or just $0.17 each!

    3. Free Nail Polish at CVS

    BUY: 1 Revlon Nail Polish @ $4.99
    USE: $2/1 Revlon Cosmetic from 7/28 Smart Source
    Pay: $2.99
    Receive: $3 ECB
    Net Price: FREE

    There has been some question in the past about whether nail polish is a “cosmetic” but according to posts I’ve read on the coupon forums, Revlon’s customer service has confirmed that it is.

    The limit on this deal is 6, so if you have enough coupons, you can get up to 6 free bottles of nail polish!

    Ends 8/10.

    4. Cheap Quilted Northern Bath Tissue at CVS

    BUY: 1 Quilted Northern Ultra Plush or Ultra Soft & Strong Bath Tissue 12-pk @ $6.99
    USE: $1/1 Quilted Northern Ultra from 7/14 Red Plum or Soft & Strong printable
    Pay: $5.99
    Submit for: $0.75/1 Quilted Northern Ultra Plush or Ultra Soft & Strong Bath Tissue Ibotta offer
    Net Price: $5.24

    That works out to $0.44 per double roll, which is an awesome price for bath tissue, and especially for Quilted Northern. There are separate Ibotta offers for Ultra Plush and Ultra Soft & Strong, so you could do this deal twice if you have two coupons.

    Ends 8/8 (when the Ibotta offer expires).

    5. Free Toothpaste or Toothbrush at Walgreens

    BUY: 1 Colgate Total Advanced or Sensitive Toothpaste or 360 Toothbrush @ $3.49
