Walgreens Highlights - Week of 10/25-10/31

As I mentioned in my previous post, I wasn't up to posting much lately due to traveling and sickness in our family, but I think things are better now, so I'm back! If you're new to Walgreens shopping, check out my post here, which explains their system and how to get the most for your money when shopping there. Here are the best deals I see for the week of 10/25:

Buy 2 Trident Layers gum @ $.99 (with in-ad store coupon)
Use (2) $.75 printable coupons or B1G1 coupon from 10/18 insert
Pay $.48-.99, get $1 in Register Rewards; final cost = $.52 profit or FREE after coupons and Register Rewards
*Note: This Register Reward (RR) deal is not advertised in the flyer, but it is an October monthly deal.

Buy (2) Sudafed PE 20 or 24 ct. or OM nasal spray .5 oz. @ 2/$12, get $3 RR
Use (1) $2 coupon from 8/2 or 10/4 insert and $4 coupon from 10/4 insert (Note: must buy at least 1 nasal spray in order to use the $4 coupon)

Buy 8 select Dove hair care products @ $4.99, B1G1 free = $19.96
Use (8) $1.50 or $1 coupons from 10/4 insert
Depending on what coupons you have, pay $7.96-$11.96 after coupons and get $10 RR; final cost = $2.04 profit to $1.96 for 8 ($.25 each) after coupons and RR
*Note: This RR deal is not advertised in the flyer but is an ongoing October monthly deal. Also note that the $1.50 coupon is good only on conditioner, while the $1 coupon is good on any Dove hair care product.

Buy 2 Bayer Contour or Breeze 2 glucose meters @ $14.99 (these are part of the buy $20, get $5 promo)
Use (2) $30 coupons from 10/25 insert (coupons will need to be adjusted down to the purchase price; they will not take off $30 when the meter costs $14.99)
Pay tax and get $5 RR; final cost = $5 profit after coupons and RR

You could also use the Bayer "buy $20, get $5" deal to get free vitamins:

Buy 1 Bayer Contour or Breeze 2 glucose meter @ $14.99 and 1 box 50-100 ct. One-A-Day vitamins @ $6.99 = $21.98
Use $30 meter coupon from 10/25 insert and $2 One-A-Day coupon from 9/27 insert
Pay $4.99, get $5 RR; final cost = FREE after coupons and RR

Even if you don't use glucose meters yourself, as you can see, it is sometimes financially beneficial to buy them anyway. Plus, some charitable organizations accept them as donations, so you can also help others in the process. Or, you can strip them for parts - if the meter comes with test strips, many diabetics appreciate receiving just the strips, since those can be quite pricey. I have also heard that the batteries from the meters will work in some pacemakers.

In addition to the above deals advertised in the weekly ad, the following deals were advertised in the 9/27 ad but are actually valid for the entire month of October, so you can still get them:

Buy 1 Emergen-C Booster 2 pk., 2.5 oz. @ $3.49, get $3.49 in RR = FREE after RR

Buy 1 Vaseline Sheer Infusion Lotion, 6.8 oz. @ $6.99, get $6.99 in RR
Use $1 coupon from 10/18 insert or $1.50 printable coupon (if you printed it when it was available)
Pay$5.49-$5.99, get $6.99 RR; final cost = $1-$1.50 profit after coupon and RR

Buy 1 Halls Refresh @ $1, get $1 RR
Use $.75 or $.35 coupon from 9/27 insert
Pay $.25-$.65, get $1 RR; final cost = $.35-$.75 profit after coupon and RR
