For the next 2 days... well, today and Saturday, Walgreens has coupons and rebates in their EasySaver Catalog (monthly booklet of coupons and rebates that they put out) that overlap. By overlap I mean you might find 2 coupons for the same products, one in the August EasySaver and one in the September. When you do two deals together, a coupon and then a rebate, we call it a double dip.
An example this week is this:
Buy 6 Garnier Fructis items at $3.99 each
Use $1/1 coupon from August EasySaver booklet (this should take off $6-computer takes off $1 for each one)
Use 6 $1/1 coupons (from 05/04 and 06/22 RedPlum inserts) or 6 $2/1 hangtags that are being found at Dollar General
Spend $12 plus tax out of pocket (or approx. $6 out of pocket if you have the $2/1 coupons)
Get $10 rebate from September EasySaver booklet
$2 out of pocket (or free plus overage with $2/1 coupons) after coupons and rebate!
There are several deals to be done this time around and I'll leave it to Money Saving Mom to give you the details. She has it all laid out in great format to walk you through it.
Keep in mind the $10 off $40 coupon and the John Freida hair care deal if you think you may spend that much.
If you've never done Walgreens rebates before they are great! They recently put them online which makes them even better because now you can sometimes do even better than a double dip because with the online forms you don't have to send in your receipt. This makes it easy to send in for a manufacturer rebate as well if there happens to be one.
During these 2 days you can use coupons and buy things for both months worth of rebates, so if you haven't done the ones for August yet you still can.
Be sure when you do the rebates online you that you save your form until you are sure you have purchased everything that you were going to for that month. Once you click to submit your rebate to Walgreens you can no longer add any rebate purchases to it, so don't submit it until you are sure!
Another great thing about Walgreens rebates is that if you get a gift card from them and choose to continue to get Walgreens gift cards instead of an actual rebate check they give you an extra 10% bonus for choosing the gift card option. It's good for them because they want to keep you coming to the store, good for you because you get extra $ back!
I will be posting a Walgreens 101 shortly....
