I got 106 diapers for $7.98 out of pocket at CVS!
I loved this email from Jessica:
Just wanted to share my good diaper transaction with you!
First . . . I had been inspired by numerous mentions on your site about “just ask – you never know!” (I particularly remember one time that you got free bananas just because you asked for a discount on them – ha ha.) When our baby was born, I updated my Pampers account with her birthday and contacted Pampers to tell them she had arrived, and asked for coupons to buy their diapers for her, mentioning how well Pampers had already worked for my son. They mailed two coupons for FREE diapers to me, and I had been saving them for a rainy day.
Huggies diapers were on sale for $9.49 (yes, that’s a sale price around here!) and from having signed up for a CVS card, I had a coupon for $3.50 off one package. I also had Kimberly-Clark manufacturer’s coupons – the ones you mentioned in this post. I took at look at all the shelves to make sure I didn’t miss any clearance items . . . sure enough, there was an extra-large package of 56 Huggies slip-on diapers on clearance for $11.99 (normally $23.99) which I could save for when our baby girl is wearing size 4.
So I was able to use a $2.50-off Kimberly-Clark coupon and the $3.50-off CVS coupon on the clearance item, another $2.50-off Kimberly-Clark coupon on a second package of Huggies (size 5) and I used the coupon for the free Pampers diapers for a third package (size 6 – night-time wear for my son, which would have cost $12.49.) I also made sure that the cashier signed us up for the “double rewards” promotion that CVS is running for ExtraCare members.
Lastly . . . I wasn’t expecting any ExtraBucks from this transaction, but for some reason, I got $5 back! The receipt didn’t say what it was for, but it certainly was a great bonus – even though I can’t say that I planned it! So I was able to take home 106 diapers for $7.98, which is pretty good for an in-store deal, on brands that both run rewards programs. -Jessica
