    Best Deals of the Week

    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!}

    Limit 2. Ends 12/14.

    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!}

    Best Deals of the Week

    Please note this post may contain 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.

    When I started this series several months ago, I didn’t give any thought to what it would mean the week of Black Friday. There are far too many deals this week to compile into one manageable “Best Deals” list. So I’ll just highlight a few of my favorite deals below, and let you know where you can see a full list for deals at that store:

    1. CVS – through Tuesday, 11/26

    Among my favorite deals at CVS the first half of this week are some gift card deals:

    • Buy $75 in iTunes or App Store Gift Cards, Get $20 ECB, Limit 1
    • Buy $100 in GAP Brand Gift Cards, Get $25 ECB, Limit 1
    • Buy $150 PayPal Reloadable Prepaid MasterCard, Get $50 ECB, Limit 1

    Note that the terms of the PayPal MasterCard are rather unfavorable – you’ll need to pay a $4.95 activation fee, which still leaves you with a whopping $45.05 moneymaker! But as long as there is a balance on the card, you’ll be charged a monthly fee of $4.95. Therefore, I recommend using the card immediately and closing the account as soon as possible to avoid any additional fees. You can read all of the PayPal MasterCard terms here. Also note that this is apparently a regional deal, but it’s in my online CVS ad so it should be available in Los Angeles, and possibly all of SoCal.

    My current ad says it’s valid through 11/26, and then Black Friday deals start on Thursday, 11/28. So I’m not exactly sure if these deals will still be available on Wednesday. View all of the CVS deals here.

    2. $5 Moneymaker at Walgreens

    BUY: 1 Swisse Product 60ct @ $10
    USE: $5/1 Swisse Product from 11/24 Smart Source
    Pay: $5
    Receive: $10 RR
    Net Price: $5 moneymaker

    Ends 11/30. There are other good deals through Wednesday, and starting Thursday, you can get free Crest, Blistex, and other freebies! See all of the Walgreens deals here.

    5. Rite Aid – through 11/30

    Rite Aid has some discounted gift cards this week, including:

    • Buy 1 $50 iTunes Gift Card, Get $10 off with in-ad coupon, Pay $40, Limit 1
    • Buy $25 in participating Movie Gift Cards, Get $5 +UP, Limit 2
      Includes: AMC, Fandango, and Regal Cinema
    • Buy $75 in participating Shopping Gift Cards, Get $10 +UP, Limit 2
      Includes: American Eagle Outfitters, Bass Pro Shop, and Sears

    There are also some great freebies at Rite Aid this week! See all of the Rite Aid deals here.

    4. iPad Deals at Target

    Target’s Black Friday deals include $100 gift card offers on iPads and $75 gift card offers on the iPad Mini! If you have a Target RedCard with the 5% discount (or a 5% off coupon from Target Pharmacy), you could do the following:

    BUY: 1 iPad Air Wi-Fi 16GB @ $479.00
    5% Disount: -$23.95
    Pay: $455.05
    Receive: $100 Target Gift Card
    Net Price: $355.05

    For comparison, a 16GB Wifi iPad Air is over $500 at Amazon. Note: The 5% discount doesn’t always apply, and while I *think* it will apply to the iPad deal, there may be some fine print excluding it.

    Valid 11/28 – 11/30. See all of the Target deals here.

    5. Free Reusable Bag + 20% off at Staples

    Through tomorrow, you can use the printable coupon here to get a FREE reusable bag at Staples, plus 20% off everything you can fit in it (with restrictions, of course).

    Ends 11/26.

    6. Free Photo Canvas from Canvas People

    For a limited time, get a FREE 8×10 photo canvas from Canvas People. I’ve ordered from them several times and been happy with the results {I’ve given the canvases as gifts to the grandparents, who were thrilled}. Shipping starts at $14.95.

    Ends ?.
