There's a 3 day sale with bunch of free after extra bucks school supplies, plus Sobe Lifewater is free with a printable coupon (BOGO coupon plus BOGO sale = both free). Get details here:
Go to the CVS Pharmacy and ask for a Readyfill coupon book - it's got $4 off $20 purchase coupons in it
You can get:
2 pencil boxes
2 stacks of filler paper
2 mini notebooks
2 packs of Papermate pens
1 pair of headphones
all will print out the full price in extra care bucks on the receipt when you use your CVS card.
Plus if you have a Buy one Get one printable SoBe coupon, you get 2 bottles free. That puts your total over $20.
Get all the "free" stuff in one sale and use the $4 off $20 coupon to make a 4 dollar profit - you'll get $4 more in extra bucks than you spend.
The other way to do it is to do several small consecutive purchases and roll the extra bucks from one into the next one, so you pay less out of pocket and don't end up with buttloads of extra bucks with expiration dates. If you don't use the extra bucks before they expire, it's not much of a deal.
Also- if you have a Kmart Pharmacy near you, you can transfer 4 prescriptions there and make $25 each ($100) in Kmart gift cards. Think I'm going to make a trip to Nashua this coming week on my way to visit friends. I can just transfer the prescriptions back to my regular pharmacy the next month, or wherever else is offering a dea that month.
And if you shop at JC Penney and have a Mastercard, you can get an extra good deal on your back to school shopping with this $10 off a $25 purchase coupon... print a bunch and use on several purchases.
