    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.

    Ends 11/9.

    2. Free Shave Gel at CVS

    This is an unadvertised deal that may be changed at any time so as to exclude the small cans. However, it’s reportedly working for now:

    1. Better-than-Free Toothpaste at Walgreens

    Hopefully you printed that $0.75/1 Colgate coupon last week when I told you about this deal, because it’s always nice to make some money on something everybody uses! But even if you don’t have the printable, you can still get free toothpaste:

    BUY: 1 Colgate Total Toothpaste @ $3.00
    USE: $0.75/1 Colgate Toothpaste printable {or $0.50/1 Colgate toothpaste from 10/27 SS
    Pay: $2.25 or $2.50
    Receive: $2.50 Register Reward
    Net Price: FREE to $0.25 moneymaker

    Ends 11/2.

    2. Cheap Tide at CVS

    If you prefer Tide detergent, you probably know that it’s hard to get as cheap as other brands. But you can get a good deal on Tide at CVS this week:

    BUY: 1 Tide Liquid @ $5.94
    USE: $2/1 Tide Detergent from 9/29 P&G (exp 10/31) or 10/27 P&G
    Pay: $3.94
    Receive: $1 ECB
    Net Price: $2.94

    That’s less than $1 more than my stock up price of $2 for detergent (I usually opt for All Free & Clear for $1.99 or less). Less than $3 is a great price for a bottle of Tide.

    Ends 11/2.

    3. 17% off iTunes or App Store Gift Card at CVS

    I prefer to get at least 20% off iTunes gift cards, but 17% is pretty good if you need one!

    BUY: 1 iTunes or App Store Cards @ $30.00
    Pay: $30
    Receive: $5 ECB
    Net Price: $25

    Ends 11/2.

    2. Cheap Hand Soap at Walgreens

    It’s been a long time since I’ve seen free hand soap available, and Softsoap in particular is difficult to get for under $1 because of restrictions on their coupons. So this is a rare deal:
