Some Great Deals This Week

I love it when I get a great deal without the hassle of coupons. (Although it IS a hassle well worth it!)

Just this week at Target, there were several brands offering a $5.00 Target gift-card when you bought three of the participating products. (& you could mix & match!) So, with a little planning, to ring up each deal separately so I could use the gift-cards right away, the cost I figured for my products was really good.

First up, Suave dry shampoos were only $2.99. Three of those is 8.97, but subtract the $5 I got back at a gift card & they were less than $1.33 each!

Then I mixed up the second batch, a lotion my son loves, but still has back-up (thank you couponing.) and a couple more for us to try out. (Someone always ends up using them...) The Vaseline lotion (Son's favorite) was $2.99, as was the Moroccan Infusion Suave lotion, and the other Suave lotion was $2.59. That made my pre-deal price $8.57. Minus the $5 gift-card earned, a great $1.19 each!

Now, I also had a great score with coupons. I luckily had some promotional coupons for $4 off two bags of Starbucks coffee. I wasn't very big on Starbucks because of the price, so I was hunting for deals after receiving some very tasty coffee from them through Bzzagent. This deal just fell in our laps, my friend saw it while we were walking by an endcap at Dillons. She always finds the greatest things, that's why I share my coupons with her!
Yes, that is SIX delicious bags of Starbucks coffee. Total retail cost (at this store) is $56.94! They were already on sale for $6.99 each... so the total of $41.94 is still pretty good. They ALSO had a deal that you'd get $3.00 off if you bought three. So, of course I had to buy six. $35.94 is still a great price, but I also pulled out 3 of my $4.00/2 coupons. (all I had left after giving some away) So my grand total was $23.94. Or a whopping $3.99 each! Far less than half of retail!
