Walgreens deals today OOP $10.75

I went to Walgreens when I got off work at noon. With gas prices so high, I try to do all my errands when I get off work and not make special trips just for shopping.
I knew I wanted to get the Chex Mix and Excedrin because I had coupons for them to get them pretty much free. I was not sure if I was going to try and use the 10$ off $30 today but when I saw they still had my favorite Quilted Northern 9 big roll packs for $4, I decided too.

5 Chex Mix, on sale for 99 cents, used $1 coupon on each one
3 Excedrin, on sale for 1.99, used $2 coupon on each one
2 Reach Dental Floss on sale 1.00
2 Ajax dish soap B1G1F $1.79, used 20 cent coupon on each
4 Northern, $4 each
6 Puffs Plus were on the clearance end cap for just 25 cents a box!
My total before coupons was $36 so I got one more Northern than I needed to use the $30 coupon but that is fine. You can never have too much, I guess
After coupons $10.75, that includes $1.94 sales tax.
If you do this deal, give the cashier the $10 Walgreens coupon first, then any other coupons you are using.
Walgreens was surprisingly well stocked today. They had everything I wanted and I did not clean the shelves on any of my purchases.


  1. You did a nice job at Walgreens. I don't usually shop there but with the $10 off $30 I thought it was a good opportunity.

    Before savings mine was $36 too but I ended up spending about $20. I was hoping to do better, but didn't have a lot of manufacturer coupons to match the store ones.

    As a side question, I was wondering how you calculate your savings each week? Do you add up the coupons only? I want to keep a tally also, but notice some people include sale price differences on the products (which I don't think is real savings because I wouldn't spend full price anyway). Is my question clear as mud? Thank you. :)

  2. Hi Lyn, I think you question is clear, hope I answer what you want.

    figuring grocery costs and savings can be as complicated as you want to make it. I figure mine really simply - just how much money I spent and how much was taken off for coupons.
    If you are an Excel whiz, that program might help you keep track of actual percentages but I don't have the time to do anything that complicated.

    About my Walgreens trip, my total was low because I did have several high value manu. coupons.
    Some trips are better than others and I am happy with this one.
    I have seen where other people got more and spent less but everything I bought is stuff we will use.

  3. Hi Rhonda,
    Great minds think a like.LOL I got my toliet paper and Chex Mix today too at Wal Greens,
    I am so glad you came for a visit.

  4. Very cool! I used my Walgreens $10 off like this:

    Eucerin Cream - $14.99 (Buy 1, get one 50% off)

    Eucerin Lotion - $7.49

    (2)Eucerin Lotion with SPF 30 - same deal -$14.23

    Total cost = $28.32
    Total savings = $22.49


    I've already sold all them on eBay for a profit (after fees) of $45. (They were presold before even purchased them!)

    Gotta love Walgreens!

  5. Thank you for answering my question so well.

    I agree with how you calculate your savings and simple is how I'll be doing it too.

    CVS is actually my store of preference as I do better there, but I know not everyone has them. Today's Walgreens offer was a good deal. Thank you for sharing and for replying back.

  6. A coupon cutter after my own heart! :) One question though, where's this $10 off $30 coupon because I, too, wanted to get the Eucerin cream but thought the price was a little steep. I would have bought it if I had another coupon ...

  7. Jennifer,
    Walgreens offers one day coupons about every other month or so. The one I posted about was only good on May 30.

    To find out about them,
    look on blogs like mine or Money Saving Mom. Also coupon boards like

    Also, sign up at and they will email it to whenever they have one or a sale.
