Smokin Deal on Batteries at Walgreens

My kiddo has tons of toys that require batteries. My family has flashlights that need batteries in our emergency kits. So many things are battery operated, and it's really nice because if your power goes out then you can rely on batteries.

This week, April 28-May 4, Walgreens has their store brand batteries on sale for Buy 1 Get 1 Free. They are regularly priced at around $3.99.

To make this deal better, be sure to look in Walgreens for a "Happy and Healthy" book with Fergie on the cover. The booklet can be found near the sale ads or at the checkout counter. Inside of "Happy and Healthy" there are store coupons which expire around May 18. One of these coupons will allow you to get Walgreens brand alkaline AA or AAA, 4 packs, for $0.99. The coupon states limit 3.

Here's how the deal will work:

Buy 2 Walgreens brand AA or AAA, 4 pk on sale for Buy 1 @ 3.99 each, Get 1 Free
-Use (1) $0.99 coupon from the "Happy & Healthy" booklet (this coupon will bring each pack of batteries down to $0.99)
-Minus Buy 1 Get 1 Free Sale

Final price: $0.99 for both packs!

If you wanted to buy more than the 2 packs, you can, since the coupon allows you to get 3 at the $0.99 price.

Here's what you will do if you wanted more:

Buy 6 Walgreens brand AA or AAA, 4 pk on sale for Buy 1 @ 3.99 each, Get 1 Free
-Use (1) $0.99 coupon from the "Happy & Healthy" booklet
-Minus Buy 1 Get 1 Free Sale

Final price: $2.97 for 6 packs!
(How this deal worked out for me in the store is that the store coupon made 3 packs of batteries
$0.99. The other three packs simply showed up as free on my receipt.)

*HOT* Digiorno Pizza Deal at Target

Until Saturday, April 27, Target has a sweet deal on Digiorno Pizza! Right now the pizza is on sale for $5. If you buy three pizzas, then you will get a box of Nestle drumsticks for FREE. Of course we have coupons to make this deal even better!

Remember: You can print two coupons per computer. All you have to do is go through the link a second time or simply refresh the page.


Deal Idea:
Buy (4) Digiorno Artisan Pizzas $5 each = $20
Buy (1) Nestle Drumsticks = FREE w/ purchase of  pizzas
-Use (1) $5 off $20 Nestle Purchase Target coupon
-Use (2) $2.00 off Artisan Pizza coupons (from Facebook)
-Use (2) $1.50 off Artisan Pizza coupons (from

Final price: $8.00 or $1.60 each!!!

(You can print two coupons per computer to give you a total of four)

Deal Idea:
Buy (4) Digiorno Artisan Pizzas $5 each = $20
Buy (1) Nestle Drumsticks = FREE w/ purchase of 3 pizzas
-Use (1) $5 off $20 Nestle Purchase Target coupon
-Use (4) $2.00 off Artisan Pizza coupons

Final price: $7.00 or $1.40 each!!!!

  • This deal is not advertised in the ad, but there are tags showing the deal in-store. I actually called my Target to make sure that they were participating in the deal since it's a regional offer (meaning not all places are doing it). 
  • Some people have said that the Nestle drumsticks counts toward the $20 purchase. So, they bought three pizzas and one box of drumsticks and paid $4 for all of it! Your experience may vary. I say it doesn't hurt to try. You could take a fourth box of pizza to check out in cash buying three doesn't work.
  • After the cashier scans your items, hand over the $5 Target coupon first!
  • If you were able to print the $2.00 off any large Digiorno Pizza that I posted about on Facebook then use those, too! They will allow you to branch out from just getting the Digiorno Artisan Pizza.
  • Play around with the deal ideas and see how you can make it fit best for your family! 
  • Use your Target debit card to save 5%.
Thanks, Totally Target!

FREE Angel Soft Toilet Paper at Safeway

Note: This deal is for my fellow Arizonians who have a Safeway that doubles coupons.

Safeway has the 4 pack Angel Soft regular rolls on sale for $1.00. This is a good deal in and of itself, but it gets even better because there is a coupon for it. The coupon has no size restrictions, which means that you can use it on the 4 pack.

The coupon value is $0.25, but Safeway makes all coupons under $1.00 valued at $1.00. For instance, a $0.25=$1.00, $0.50=$1.00, $0.60=$1.00.

Here's what you do:
1. Go to the Angel Soft website and click on the "Grab the Coupon" button.
2. Print out the coupon (should be able to get two prints per computer).
3. Take the coupon into Safeway and pick the 4 pack Angel Soft.
4. Head to checkout, give the product and coupon to the cashier, and you will just pay tax!

$0.50 Flip Flops at Target!

Summer is coming! I don't know about you, but I do not like wearing close-toed shoes in the summertime. I like for my feet to be free. Thankfully, Target has released a $2.00 coupon for women's flip flops and flat sandals.

Target has flip flops for as low as $2.50 as part of their normal price. With the coupon, you can score a pair of flips flops for only $0.50! That's cheaper than Old Navy's popular $1.00 flip flop sale!

I was able to try out this deal in the store, and I can verify that it works. I had no troubles. You should be able to print two coupons per computer!

Thanks, Krazy Coupon Lady!

CVS Advisor Panel

Update: I took another survey on May 13 and got a $10 extracare bucks! The survey was just as the simple as the first one I took. I'm loving being a member of this panel!

If you have some extra time on your hands, you might be interested in signing up to be a member of the CVS Advisor Panel. You will have the opportunity to take surveys and give your input about the CVS stores, websites, products, etc. After qualifying for and completing each survey, you will earn extracare bucks (CVS money to use in store to purchase items).

I signed up in March and took my first survey at the beginning of March! It was relatively easy and interesting to complete. It didn't take much time. Immediately after completing the survey, I received a $5 ecb! I would definitely recommend signing up for this panel because those ecbs will make the CVS deals even better!

How to Shop at CVS

CVS is by far my favorite store to shop when buying personal care products. You can often pick up items for free or really really cheap! Toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, body wash, shampoo, pads, vitamins...there's so much you can get by paying very little.

Sign up for an Extracare card in store
  • You can link your phone number to your card if you don't want to carry it around with you.
  • Allows you to buy items at the sale price offered at the store
  • Register your card at so that you can receive coupons by email
    • Often these coupons are for 20% off your purchase or $4 off $20, etc 
  • Card keeps track of purchases needed in order to receive ecbs
  • You'll receive 2% back on all of your purchases (which will print out as an ecb at the end of every quarter/3 months)
Extracare Bucks
  • Also called extrabucks rewards (abbreviated as ecb) are what make CVS so wonderful. 
  • Ecbs are store coupons that print out at the bottom of your receipt that you can use to purchase items in the store. 
  • Cannot be used to purchase prescriptions, alcohol, gift cards, lottery, money order, postage stamps, pre-paid cards, and tobacco products. Everything else is pretty much fair game!
  • How do you know if you'll receive an ecb by purchasing a product? Usually it will say so in the ad or you can see if it's tagged in your store.
  • Deals which offer ecbs have limits to allow others the opportunity to purchase the same products
  • Here's an example: If you purchase one Colgate toothpaste at $2.99, you will receive a $2.00 ecb. Notice the small print at the bottom. It limits you to doing this deal twice. If you were to buy a third toothpaste, you wouldn't receive a third $2.00 ecb.
  • There are some times when you have to spend a certain amount before you receive an ec. Example: In the picture below, you have to spend $10 BEFORE using any coupons to get the $5 ecb. Even if your total is $5 after using coupons, you will still get that $5 ecb as long as your total was $10 before the coupons. You don't have to make all of your purchases on one day, either, because your card will keep track of how much you've spent towards the deal.
  • Ecbs can roll! This means that you can use ecbs to buy other products that also produce ecbs. For example, you can use the $2.00 you earn from buying the Colgate toothpaste (above picture) to pay for the Crest toothpaste. 
  • Can't get change back from ecbs. If you use your $2.00 ecb to pay for an item that cost $0.99, your $2.00 ecb will be adjusted down to $0.99. You will lose $1.01. 
CVS Coupon Machine
  • Inside of each store is a coupon machine that prints out store coupons when you scan your card
  • After your first batch of coupons print out, scan your card again to get more coupons from the machine
  • If you go into the store and find that the $2.99 Colgate toothpaste has run out of stock, you can ask the store associate to write a raincheck for you. 
  • The associate would write the sale price of the item along with the amount of ecbs you would receive with it. When the product is back in stock, you can simply take your raincheck to the store and buy the product at the price listed on your raincheck. If your purchase qualifies for ecbs, the associate will force print the ecb at the register for you.
  • CVS rainchecks have no expiration date which means that you can use it whenever you're ready!
CVS Beauty Club
  • Head over here to sign up
  • For every $50.00 you spend (before coupons), you will earn a $5.00 ecb.
  • You'll receive a $3.00 ecb on your birthday.
  • Qualifying Beauty purchases include: Cosmetics, Ethnic Hair Care, Fragrances, Hair Accessories, Hair Appliances, Hair Care, Hair Color, Hosiery, Healthy Skin Care and Skin Care.
You can find the CVS coupon policy here. I recommend printing it out and taking it with you to the store whenever you shop.

Get FREE Products from Betty Crocker

Betty Crocker often has great promotions for their members. Just the other day, I received a free pouch of Sugar Cookie mix. It's absolutely FREE to sign up! All you have to do is go here and go through the steps to fill out your information.

Another great thing about the site is that you can print coupons for even more savings!

Don't wait to sign up. When they have the promotions for free samples (like the sugar cookies), you have to be a member prior to the day of each promotion.
