Free & Nearly Free Stuff – With & Without Coupons

Yesterday I made an unscheduled CVS visit.  I was passing by and wanted to grab some Bengay before there wasn’t any left. 

1st things 1st:  Scanned my ExtraCare Card and out came a coupon for a free full-sized package of the new Newton Fruit Thins.  Lucky for me, there was one package left in the store.  The cranberry citrus oat is delicious.  I’m already hooked.  Nabisco surely got their money’s worth out of giving me a bag of cookies, because I will definitely buy them and recommend them.

  • Coupon:  1 CVS ExtraCare for free Newton Fruit Thins
  • Clearance:  Fan was 75% off on clearance

OUT OF POCKET:   $5.97

TOTAL VALUE:  $35.97       =     83.4 % Savings

No ECBs Used.  No ECBs Received.

********************************************************

NOTE:  Bengay is also on sale for $5.99 at Walgreen’s this week for variety of sizes and types, including 4 oz sizes.   If you have only of the $5/1 Bengay coupons, then the Walgreen’s deal is the better choice because you can get a 4 oz tube vs. CVS where you would need two coupons to get 4 oz.   

  • One 4 oz tube at Walgreen’s = 99¢ out of pocket.  
  • Two 2 oz tubes at CVS – 98¢ out of pocket.
More shopping to come.
