Hooked On CVS

Hooked On CVS

If there’s one thing I learned at CVS this week, it’s that creativity pays — literally. Case in point, the Roc deal I posted earlier this week. But if face wash isn’t really your thing, then there’s still another way you can earn some completely free ECBs. Yes, free, that magic word that catches everyone’s attention.

This week at CVS, buying $15 worth of Scotch 3M products will earn you a $5 ECB. This includes the Command adhesive hooks, which are currently on sale for 2/$5. At most stores the shelf stickers only advertise this price on the plastic hooks, but it works on the metal hooks too [[yes, even the big metal hooks that are marked $6.99 are included in the 2/$5]]. This is a beautiful thing because this link will take you to none other than a $2.50 off Command metal hooks coupon, making these little suckers completely free. What makes this deal so sweet is that by taking home six of these freebies you will also earn yourself a $5 ECB with no out of pocket expense.

What are you still doing here? Go before they run out!

You’re Such A Ham

You’re Such A Ham

Unilever put a rebate form in its coupons on April 5 for a free ham or turkey, up to $20. All you had to do was buy $40 worth of Unilever products.

The small thing: The receipts have to be dated between April 5 and today, April 30. It can be on multiple trips and whatnot, but today’s the last day to shop. And the form has to be postmarked by May 7.

So, go through your old receipts, see what you totaled, and buy the biggest ham or turkey you can. Well, closest to $20. After that, you’re on your own.

Say What You Need To Say

Say What You Need To Say

There’s a chance that, for the rest of her life, your mom is going to treasure the Mother’s Day card you get her. There’s also a chance that once the holiday is over, she’s dumping it in the garbage.

Since you don’t wanna throw any money in the trash — and since 99 cent cards for Mom are out of the question — head over to Hallmark’s site. Design a card for mom, enter CARD4MOM at checkout, and you’ll get a card for free. Hallmark will even send it for you.

I mailed one to Beth last time Hallmark had free cards, and it was awesome [[although I didn’t see it on display when I was over that way last weekend. Hmm … ]]. I also sent one to my grandma, who loved it. If you’re looking to send two cards, you can also use the code APRILCARD to send one for free. But you better hurry. That code seems like it’ll probably expire soon.

Tea For You

Tea For You

The problem I have with Arby’s is that it’s expensive [[ask Beth about her problem with Arby’s. It’s much funnier and isn’t resolved as easily as mine]].

When Arby’s decides to give me some things for free, my problem is fixed because the more items you get for the same amount of money, the better.

Between right now and May 5, with the purchase of any sandwich, you can get a free Iced Fruitea with this coupon. It comes in Passion Fruit, Mandarin Peach, Diet Peach, and Diet Blackberry. There’s no scientific proof that the first one will get you any closer to the ladies, but for free, you might as well try it out.

I Scream, You Scream …

I Scream, You Scream …

We all scream for FREE ice cream? [[I’m not so witty as the others, but I try]].

Carvel Ice Cream is giving away a free Iceberg — your choice of soda, blended with ice and vanilla flavoring, topped with a scoop of soft serve ice cream — today, Thursday, April 30th from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. to celebrate Carvel’s 75th anniversary.

Not all locations are participating so hopefully your local Carvel is a participating location!

Free Cleaning

Free Cleaning

A big thank you goes out from us at Drugstore Divas to Cindy from Living Rich with Coupons. And, if you have a ShopRite in your area, you should be thanking her too.

At ShopRite, many Lysol products are on sale for $1.88. This week, there were a ton of Lysol coupons from the paper. Wanna know what they were? You’ve gotta check out our coupon database for that.

Here’s Cindy’s scenario [[with little asterisks inserted by yours truly]]:

1 Lysol All Purpose Pourable Cleaner = $1.88 -$.75/1 4/26 SS insert (doubled)*
1 Lysol All Purpose Trigger Cleaner = $1.88 – $.75/1 4/26 SS insert (doubled)
1 Antibacterial Kitchen Cleaner Trigger = $1.88 – $.75/1 4/26 SS insert (doubled)*

Total after coupons: $1.14 for all three

Then submit the rebate form to Lysol and receive $3 from making this a moneymaker of $1.86.

The rebate she’s talking about is one we talked about not too long ago. If you didn’t stock up on cleaners at CVS last month, you can still do it.

The asterisks are there because of this: The coupons in my paper [[and presumably yours too]] may have been 50 cents off the pourable cleaner and the trigger. If that’s the case, you’re looking at a total of $2.14 instead of $1.14. But hey, 02/14 is Valentine’s Day, and you can [[almost]] never go wrong with love.
