School Supply Freebies and Deals 7/10 - 7/16

The school supply season has officially started.  Please note that the deals do vary in different areas of the country (I recommend you check your ads or visit each store's website to confirm the deals before you head out to shop.).  The deals I list are what is valid in the Las Vegas area.

      CVS: (Thanks to I Heart CVS for the following deal information.)
      • Balance Bar (1.76oz) $1.69 - ($1.69) ecb = Free
      • Complete Multi-Purpose Solution (12 oz) $7.99 - ($7.99) ecb = Free
      • Lumene (any) Buy $20 get $5 (buy following combo of items):
        • Lumene Wipes (buy 5) $4.19 - 5($4) 6/19/11 ss - ($5) ecb = Free + $4.05
        • Lumene Creme (buy 7) $2.99 - 5($4) 6/19/11 ss - ($5) ecb = Free + $5 (Most CVS stores will not give you overage on coupons. The computer automatically adjusts them down...which is why I say to use 5 rather than 7 coupons for this transaction.)
        • There are other combos of deals, but you get the idea.  Find the best combo utilizing the $4 coupons that you have to (ideally) pay no more than $5 before ecb yielding you free products.  (Or even better...profit up to $5 after ecb!)
      I would encourage you to do deals for extra-cheap school supplies or free products even if you won't use that item.  You can donate what you cannot or won't use to others.   SOS is accepting donations in office for school supplies.  You can also donate them to most food banks.  Find one in your area by going to Feeding America.

      If you have any questions about a particular abbreviation or word, check out my coupon definitions. If you still can't find the answer, post here or shoot me an e-mail.
