Field Updates: CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Target, Staples, Office Depot, & Office Max!

Here are my field updates for this week's deals. My update covers CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Target, Staples, Office Depot, and Office Max! For my detail $1 or less shopping guide that covers all of the stores featured here, check out my previous posting!

Coupon Machine Printed Today 7/17/11
-$5 off Facial Skin Care Purchase $20+ more x1 day from print
-$5 off $20 Revlon or Maybelline cosmetic purchase x1 day from print
-$2 off $10+ Breakfast Bar Purchase x7/31/11
-.50/1 bottle of Big Chill Purified Water, 20oz x7/24/11
-.50/2 Dove large bars,3oz or more x7/24/11

Caliber Paper $1.99 w/EB $1.99= FREE, LIMIT 2
Receipt only printed $1.99 once and it said "offer limit reached". I asked the cashier and he printed another $1.99 for me after I showed him how the ad read "limit 2". Either it was a printing error or the stores did not code their registers correctly.

Crest Toothpaste $1.99 w/EB $1 = .99 cents, as low as .24 cents w/Q, LIMIT 2
Worked fine. I used TWO .75/1 MQ from 6/5/11 P&G June 2011.

Honest Tea 5/$5 or $1 each
Not all the flavors are ringing up correctly (e.g. mango tea rung as $1.79 today). Manager did not believe me when I said I didn't have to purchase 5 bottles in order to get the $1 each price. She rung up another flavor and surely it rang as $1.
3M Post-Its Labels .99 cents each, FREE w/MQ
Make sure to have them adjust the coupon down to .99 cents. Otherwise, you will have problems at the register. Very sturdy labels! These are NOT located in the post-it aisle and instead are found in the labeling/near the ream paper section.

Scotch Tape $1, FREE w/MQ & FREE Reusable Bag w/2 Post it OR Scotch Brand purchase!
Look carefully at the Scotch Brand/Post-It display. There should be a FREE resusable bag w/2 Post-Its OR Scotch Brand purchase MQ! The bag is so cute! On top of the bag, the tapes were free, but both the MQ and the free bag MQ had problems at the register. 

Nair Waxings Strips/Cream, Spend $10+, Get UP+$5 back, LIMIT 4
This worked fine. Cheapest item qualifying for this promotion is $4.99 (face waxing cream). Since I had no use for this, I got two waxing strip kits (priced $5.99). Used the $3/2 MQ. Paid $8.98 OOP and got back $5 in +UP Rewards= $4.02 for both!

Rembrant/Listerine, $4.99 w/UP+ $2= $2.99, as low as .99 cents, No Limit Listed
I did not get this deal, but it looks like there were plenty on the shelf.

Make sure to use your Back to School Savings Card (Cost: $10.00 and expires 9/17/11) for an additional 15% off your purchase! Again, the break even point before rebates is $67! Definitely get it if you will be shopping during this back to school season.

Avery 5-Tab Dividers, .50 cents
My store had none of the.50 cents 5-tab dividers. Make sure you pick up the right ones as there were many similar ones that are not on sale. Other than that, everything was well stocked and relatively easy to find.

Highlighters, 5 Pack, $4 w/$4 Staples Easy Rebate= FREE
Used Savings Card (15%) and looks like I will still get $4 back. 

Scotch Tape .50 cents, FREE w/Target Web Q
Q did not work. Cashier had to put it through.

BIC $2/1 Ballpoint Pens, .50 cents, FREE w/Target Web Q OR $2/1 BIC items MQ
Worked fine.

Summer Clearance Items- Up to 75% Off
I scored some seasonal GLAD kitchen wrap for .75 cents last night. Other items include beach/summer toys (dive rings, frisbee discs, outdoor cutlery, cups/plastic utensils and more). Typically, if there's room for your store to have these items out, expect 1 more price cut at 90% off!

Milka Chocolate bars 2/$3, FREE w/TWO $1 MQs and $1/2 Milka Chocolate Q from July 2011 Book
Worked fine.

Carefree Pantiliners, .99 cents, as low as FREE w/Qs
$3/2 Carefree 16ct+ Q in July 2011 Booklet not working w/this week's promotion. It simply would not scan. I am not sure why since the Q worked a couple weeks ago for Carefree Acti-Fresh as well. Your best bet is to use a .50/1 or .55/1 MQ and the in ad Q- making it .49 or .45 cents for 20-22ct.! Still not shabby at all!
