Walgreens: Dr. Scholl’s money-maker

I’ll have the full list of Walgreens deals up in a little while, but I wanted to share these two hot Dr. Scholl’s deals with you:

Remember the free Dr. Scholl’s deal at Walgreens? Well, it just got hotter this week since the free Dr. Scholl’s products also produce a $5 Register Reward when you purchase two.

Buy 2 Dr. Scholl’s for Her Hidden Arch Inserts at $6.99 each
Use 2 $2/1 Dr. Scholl’s For Her Insoles coupon (IE) (FF)
Use 1 $5/1 Walgreens Dr. Scholl’s coupon from the July coupon booklet (available by the weekly sales fliers — will deduct $10)
Free plus you’ll get back $5 Register Rewards
Please note that you’ll need to add in a small filler item if this is all you’re purchasing as otherwise your total will be negative and the register won’t allow the transaction.

If you don’t want to have to add in a filler, here’s another scenario you can do:

Buy two Dr. Scholl’s for Her Rough Skin Eraser Cream 3oz $6.99 each
Use $5/1 Walgreens Dr. Scholl’s coupon from the July coupon booklet (available by the weekly sales fliers — will deduct $10)
Pay $3.98 plus tax out of pocket, Get back $5 register rewards
Free plus small overage after coupon and Register Rewards

Thanks, EE Endeavors and Common Sense with Money!

Back-to-School Deals: Teachers and homeschoolers have a limit of 25 at Staples; price-matching at Walmart

I’ve posted the Staples back-t0-school deals the past two weeks and failed to tell you an important piece of information. A reader wrote in with the following and I wanted to post it in case some of the rest of you didn’t know:

Please feel free to remind  your readers that if they are a teacher and show their faculty I.D. they can get increased limits on all 1-cent and some 25-cent sale items at Staples. For example, the 1-cent folders had a limit of 5, but teachers can get 25. Glue had limit of 2, but teachers can get 25.

Does anyone know if this is also true at other stores?

Also, if you want to keep things simple, don’t forget that you can price-match any of the back-to-school deals at your local stores at Walmart. Just bring in the competitor’s  ads and Walmart will price-match any advertised price.
