  • Best Deals This Week: Dec 9, 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. Conair Products for as low as Free at Rite Aid

    Update: There is reportedly signage now stating that there was a misprint in the ad, and the deal is actually a $10 +UP reward when you spend $30 on Conair products. 🙁

    Rite Aid is offering a $10 +UP reward on various Conair products, including dryers, straighteners, curling irons, haircut kits, and trimmers. Prices start at $9.99, so buy one of those and get it for FREE! Plus, there is a limit of 4 on this offer, so you could get as many as four products for free!

    There are also some Rite Aid Facebook coupons that go with this deal:

    Ends 12/28.

    2. Discounted GAP Brand Gift Cards at Rite Aid

    I love getting discounts on gift cards, because I can save even more when I find a good sale. In California at least, gift cards don’t expire, and the GAP Brand gift cards can generally be used at any GAP Brand store, even if it’s not the one on the front of the card (e.g., the fine print on the back usually says you can use a Banana Republic gift card at GAP).

    BUY: 1 $25 Banana Republic, GAP, or Old Navy Gift Card
    Pay: $25
    Receive: $5 +UP reward
    Net Price: $20 {it’s like saving 20% before you even start shopping!}

    3. Discounted Home Improvement Gift Cards at Rite Aid

    Rite Aid is offering a $10 +UP Reward when you buy a $50 Home Improvement Gift Card. The gift card can be used at various home improvement retailers, including Home Depot, Lowes, Ace, Sears, True Value, and more.

    BUY: 1 $50 Home Improvement Gift Card
    Pay: $50
    Receive: $10 +UP reward
    Net Price: $40 {it’s like saving 20% before you even start shopping!}
