Walgreens: Good Deal Alert — Right Guard

Walgreens: Good Deal Alert — Right Guard

Just a quick deal. Walgreens has Right Guard products buy one get one free this week [[ending 06/04]]. This includes body wash and deodorant.

There’s a BOGO coupon in the 05/01 SS, so you can get two for free.

Thing is, the BOGO coupon expires tonight [[05/31]]. I just got back from Wags and picked this up, so sorry I didn’t know about this sooner. Hurry to your store and get in on the deal.

CVS: Changes In Expired Policy In New City, NY Store

CVS: Changes In Expired Policy In New City, NY Store

I know I have some readers who live locally, so this post is definitely for them.

The CVS on Main Street in New City, New York had always taken expired ecb, up to one year from the expiration date.

Not anymore.

My aunt went into the CVS to try to use her expired money, and they told her that she can only use them up to one month expired. The cashier said that there’s a new store manager and that’s the new policy.

I went into that CVS myself and spoke with one of the seasoned cashiers who confirmed this.

So, just a little heads up in case you’re in my area.

Sunday Speak: How Stocked Is Your Walgreens?

Sunday Speak: How Stocked Is Your Walgreens?

I know it’s not Sunday, but we didn’t have a Sunday Speak this week, so we’re having it on Tuesday.

Here’s where this comes from: I was emailing with a reader named Geri on Monday, and she was mentioning that the shelves at her Walgreens are never stocked. So, through conversation, I got to wondering: How many other people encounter this problem?

Geri said that it’s only through persistence that she can get cashiers to get sale items out of the back. And she said two-day sale items are never stocked at her store — and the staff tells her that the truck comes in on Tuesday.

How is that helpful?

I’ve actually noticed this at my stores, which is why I began boycotting Walgreens once upon a time. Shelves were usually clear. Not always, but I had trouble getting what I wanted. And with Register Rewards having a short shelf life, it was frustrating.

CVS is generally well stocked. And if CVS doesn’t have a sale item, it’s easy to get a rain check [[which never expires]] and the cashiers can manually print your ecb if you buy an item outside of the sale period. Walgreens will write you a rain check that’s good for 30 days and cashiers cannot [[at least, in my experience cannot]] force print RR.

Have you experienced empty shelves at your Walgreens? How have you handled it?

Tiny Prints: Five Free Father’s Day Cards [[Potentially]]

Tiny Prints: Five Free Father’s Day Cards [[Potentially]]

I just read this over at Common Sense With Money, but I haven’t tried it out myself yet, so I can’t verify if this works.

She said that Tiny Prints is giving away five free personalized Father’s Day cards with the code OKL5CARDSFREE.

I love Tiny Prints cards and have been using them for every holiday since I discovered the site. The cards are always phenomenal, and my recipients have loved them.

I’m running out to a BBQ now so I can’t try the code, but if you do, let us know if it works.

CVS: Good Deal Alert — Fuze

CVS: Good Deal Alert — Fuze

My husband’s newest obsession is Banana Colada Fuze. My I hate bananas and coconuts so this is not for me! But he loves it and Fuze is not cheap. But it is this week at CVS. Fuze is on sale 5 for $5. And if you buy 5, CVS gives you back $2 in extra bucks.

There are $1/2 coupons. I will buy 6 Fuze for $6, use three of the $1/2 coupons and pay just $3. Then get $2 back in extra bucks. Total will be just $1 for 6! Too bad the limit is only one!
