When is a Deal not a Deal?

I'm going a little deal crazy lately. It's like a drug. How cheap can I get something? Well, 2 weeks ago I spent $27 on about $60 worth of "stuff" at Walgreens. I got $15 in Walgreens Bucks for my purchases.

Because my Walgreens bucks were to expire on Sept 5th, I hurried in to cash in my $15. With my purchases, I acquired $13 more in Walgreens Bucks, having spent $4.55 out of pocket. I then went in yesterday to cash in more and walked out with $10 new Walgreens bucks, having spent $2.95.

Because I'm now an addict (and admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery, right?) I returned today. I cashed in my $10 in Walgreens bucks for 4 bags of Tostitos and a men's razor that contained 2 cartridges inside. I walked out having spent $2.24 and $4 in Walgreen's bucks in my pocket for another day.

My husband now has enough razors and cartridges to last him a lifetime. We also have more toothpaste and deoderant than any household needs. If you haven't tried the Walgreens/CVS game yet, I highly recommend it.

In the meantime, you'll find me in rehab. My name is KP and I'm addicted to Deals.

  1. There are so many worse things to be addicted to! I'm inspired to become addicted myself...

  2. I love these kinds of deals, but I always forget to use my Walgreens/CVS bucks. Quite annoying.
