DEAD DEAL: Deal Hunting Days

Source: Walgreens Website

It’s been a couple of months since I have seriously shopped Walgreens. I have done a couple of small transactions here and there but nothing like at the beginning of my deal hunting days. But double dipping days are here and this is a good month to dip in.

What is double dipping? Double dipping happens when the end of one rebate period overlaps with the beginning of another rebate period at Walgreens. During these two days, the coupons in the EasySaver booklet from the period that is about to end are still active and the coupons from the period that just begun become active as well. So you can double dip by using the coupons from both Easysaver booklets on the same items. Of course this situation is entirely YMMV and depends a lot on the cashier you get whether you can do it or not. For a complete list of all the double dipping deals you can do today check this thread at HCW.

I am keeping it simple and mostly I am trying to get some simple overage deals:

  • Loreal Vive Hydragloss BOGO sale with BOGO coupon, use the 1/1 off any Vive from the August ESR and get $2 in overage for every two bottles I buy. I have six coupons to use. For a possible of $12 in overage.
  • Maalox Junior on clearance $3.19. Use $2/1 manufacturer coupon and $2/1 July ESR coupon for 12.15 in possible overage.
  • Benefiber Caplets (72 ct) $3.19 clearance. Use $2/1 manufacturer coupons and $2/1 July ESR coupon, have 20 coupons to use. For a possible of $16.20 in overage.

I have not tried the double dipping on the Walgreens diapers, but if you are interested this is what you can do:
$17.97 Buy three packs of jumbo size Walgreens brand diapers
-7.50 deducted when you use the $5/2 July Easysaver coupon
-7.50 deducted when you use the $5/2 August Easysaver coupon
=2.97 + Tax and you get a $5 Register Rewards on top of that!

I am still not sure the diaper double dipping works at my store, which is why I haven’t given it a try. But other people report great success. If you decide to give this a try, today is the last day to do it!

Happy deal hunting!

    Thanks for the info on the diapers, I was going there today to get some and did not know about the August coupon. They let me! So my friend and I scored ALL they had. =)

    I went to several stores and FINALLy found the August book. They wouldn’t give them out at any of the stores. The shelves were empty except 3 size 6 packs which I grabbed. I got diapers, 2 Vive Pro (using the IVC and BOGO), the scrubbing bubbles shower scrubber (using 2.75 IP) and the total was 6.31 with tax! Now I will get 5.69 back from Scrubbing Bubbles and 1.50 from WAGS not to mention the $5 off catalina. Whoo hoo! I was so excited I went to one last store and they were so rude and hostile I felt like a total jerk when I left empty handed.

    I didn’t do too bad. The thing with going today was that the stores were mostly bare. Which was fine with me. Then this evening I hit my regular store and they had diapers! I only bought 17 though. Pretty tame in comparison.

    You can print the August ES coupons online and then you don’t have to hunt for the book in the stores. I wish that I had saved my Loreal BOGO Qs!!!
