Drugstore Shopping: CVS & Rite Aid

I was planning on doing this much sooner, but as I was called in to pick up extra hours at the store further away I ran out of time. That's okay because Rite Aid got the men's Nivea body wash back in stock. I hate it when the run out of stock and it's only Monday! ARGH! Any who . . .

CVS was a bit lack luster this week in general. I was happy to see the coke back on sale at a descent price again. 4 for $13 and $3 extra bucks back is nice. We've been out of coke for two or three weeks and Sweetheart has been thirsty for his. I was happy to finally see the Gain dish soap on sale at CVS. More often than not when the new product comes out I see it on sale at CVS before I see it other places. Rite Aid beat out CVS big time. (It was on sale two or three times before CVS had their sales!) The other thing I picked up this week was the multi-pack of mesh sponges. I'm going to break this apart into gift baskets.

4 Coke 12pk @ $3.25 each = $13.00
Gain Dish Soap $.89
Mesh sponge multi-pack $4.99
Total Before Coupons: $18.88

$.89/1 Gain Dish Soap
Total After Coupons: $17.99

$3 EB Coke
Net: $14.99 (Not the best week, but it's Coke and I had EB to spend.)

After a break from Rite Aid due to the uninteresting sales I've ventured back again. First disapointment when the body wash was out of stock to only slight frustration because the other kind of toothpaste on sale was out of stock. Geerrr . . . Rite Aid Trip:

3 Men's Nivea Body Wash @ $3.99 each = $11.97
3 Women's Nivea Body wash @ $3.99 each = $11.97
Crest Scope Toothpaste $2.99
Total Before coupons: $26.93

$5 off $25 purchase RA (only one from Redplum printable)
3 $3/1 Men's Nivea Body Wash ($9)
$2/1 Nivea Body Wash (Form an All You Magazine, I forget which issue)
$3/2 Women's Nivea Body Wash (I love you Nivea, but why do the men get better coupons?)
$1/1 Crest 4.0oz+
Total After Coupons: $6.93

6 $1 +up
$2.99 +up Crest
Net: $2.06 profit

In other news I spotted these signs at CVS with the L'Oreal cosmetics. Some lines are being discontinued. Better hurry if it's something you really like, it's going to be gone, gone gone!

  1. There's always something to find at CVS isn't there? Even when I say, "this won't take long" the coupon machine surprises me and I have more to buy and re-figuring to do. Thanks for linking up your CVS shopping trip at Simply CVS.
