Field Update: CVS, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, and Walmart- Week of 7/3/11-FREE Oral B Toothbrushes, Crest Mouthwash, Mitchum Deodorant, Puff Tissue & more!

I'm back from a half day of shopping with family and braving the heat. Here's the deals I tested out and ones I plan to test out later this week at CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, and Walmart!

There are a few notable bargains this week at CVS especially along the dental care aisle. Also, the coupon machine is spitting out a Hershey's Air Delight Q making for a FREE chocolate bar! Here are my favorite freebies, mm, or deals to be had! Everything went smoothly at CVS this morning!
Scan your CVS Card at the coupon machine for FREE Hershey's Air Delight Chocolate coupon (Value: $1.19)
2 Oral-B Pulsar Battery Toothbrushes, Always Infinity Pads, and Hershey's Air Delight- eat immediately b/c mine melted in my car and I had to put it in the freezer when I got home!

Next it was Rite-Aid which had some pretty awesome dental care deals as well. Not sure why, but maybe the manufacturers think that we need to all brush our teeth after the July 4th holiday BBQs! I also tested out the Mitchum Deodorant deal that I mentioned last night and got FREE deodorant! 
Also, if you did not get a chance to grab any Crest toothpaste this week, don't fret. Grab a raincheck b/c there's a single check rebate for $2.69 beginning 7/10/11.

I learned both suggestions the hard way before!
