For those of you who’ve been around for a while, please bear with me for a second (or skip this part!!)
For those of you who’ve just recently found my site I want to start off by telling you what I tell other “newbies.” Did you know you can get FREE things at CVS and Walgreens? I’m talking completely and utterly free and if you don’t believe me, check out the pictures of my closet here. This site is about great deals in the Chicagoland area and free things and if you’re new at this, please check out my Mummy’s 411 section in the top bar. It will really help you navigate your way to free stuff! If you just read this post it may not make sense so take a mo and read 411 first and if you still have questions, I’m always available via email!
Please note that you can sign up to get my email alerts each day in the side bar and also please take a second to answer my poll or suggest things here.
Ok on with the deals. This is a GREAT week to go to CVS:
* Buy $20 worth of Duracell batteries, get $15 in ECBs!!!! Limit 3
There are coupons out there for the batteries so check old copies of newspapers. Also, there may be “peelie” stickers on the packs themselves when you get there.
About $5 for $20 worth of batteries!! I’m thinking toys at Christmas??!!
* Buy L’Oreal Age Perfect Calcium Radiance Pefector sheer tint moisturizer 1.7oz at $15.99, get $15.99 back in ECBs.
When I scanned my card in at the card scanner thing at the store, I got a coupon for $2 of any L’Oreal skincare product. I also had a newspaper coupon for $1 so yup this may be a moneymaker!!!
FREE after ECBs and maybe a moneymaker!
****Quick word of advice? These top two will get you back a ton of ECBs and sometimes it’s hard to spend those as you have to spend it all or you won’t get money back. So, what I did was buy my moisturizer first and then once I’d done that transaction I moved to the back of the line (to be polite !!) and then used those ECBs to do the batteries and a couple of other things I needed.
* Buy Crest ProHealth whitening toothpaste at $3.49, get $3.49 in ECBS. Limit 2. I’ve heard a rumour that this is Limit 5. If anyone would be willing to test it in NWI/Chicago, please lemme know. I was going to yesterday (and then return them if they weren’t free!) but my CVS didn’t have enough.
