Two Quick Drugstore Dealies

1. The Walgreen's $5/$25 coupon has been extended through Saturday. You can print the new version from their Web site. Note that Walgreen's, unlike CVS, requires you to spend $25 AFTER COUPONS to use the coupon. The only way to avoid spending at least $20 out of pocket after the coupon is to use formula checks, which are not considered coupons.

2. CVS is giving each ExtraCare card holder a free gift this month. The coupon for this gift will print out with your receipt if you make a purchase, or if you scan your card at the red coupon machine found in most stores, it should print out.

If your coupon happens to be for a free pack of CVS AA batteries, like mine was, you should get in there by tomorrow if possible: Those are buy one, get one free this week, meaning that your coupon should get you two free packs.

Also keep in mind that these free product coupons are great for when you're trying to use a $4/$20 coupon like the ones currently available in little booklets from the pharmacy. Because, unlike Walgreen's, CVS DOES let you use the coupon if your total is $20 before coupons, a free product coupon helps you get up to that threshhold without spending any extra cash.
