The Walgreens ES has a $10 gift card with a $20 Huggies purchase. From your experience, will Walgreens have diapers on sale by the 31st to really take advantage of the deal?

The reason I ask is that I really don't NEED diapers, but CVS has them on sale for $7.99 and I have coupons expiring the 31st, so I want to be sure I use them at the right place and the right time.

Any previous experiences to guide me on this one? It seems that it never fails that I use my coupons and a good deal will come around the next week and I am left kicking myself! TIA!

They were on sale last week, so I'm not sure... but look at the deal hard...may be better for you to get them at Walgreen's anyway!

I use size 3's, so here are the figures for us:

I could get two packs at Walgreen's and use two 1.50 coupons, for a total of 10.49x2=20.98-3.00=17.98-10.00 (rebate) = 7.98 for two packs of diapers, which is 10 cents per diaper.

CVS is 7.99x2=15.98-3.00=12.98 for two packs of diapers, which is 16.25 cents per diaper.

It's actually better than when they're on sale for 8.99 at Walgreen's... then the breakdown is: 8.99x3=26.97-4.50=22.47-10.00 (rebate)=12.47 which is 10.39 cents per diaper. Not a huge difference, but still a better deal with them being full price and only needing to buy two to get the rebate.

(don't forget to grab your FREE after rebate Kotex while you're there, too!!)

Thanks! We need a diaper deal of the week thread. lol
Diapers are so expensive, especially if you are not careful.

Even with the 1.50 coupons and the sale and the rebate, it makes size 3's be 10.8 cents each, which is still not as good as getting three jumbo packs at regular price with 1.50 coupons. Good, but not quite as good.

Last week I bought the diapers for 899 (2 of them) and then bought a body wash for 399. Total=21.97-1.50 coupon for each diaper-1 coupon for body wash-10 gift card back=7.97 for the 2 packs of diapers and the body wash. So I figure it breaks down to about 3.50 for each pack and 1 for the body wash, making each diaper just over 10 cents/ apiece (we use size 4)

I always try to keep it as close to the 20 as possible in order to get the best deal.

I rarely have coupons for 1.50 off!

good shopping.

Are you signed up at huggies.com? I get coupons about every 4-6 weeks, and also the ones that come from Target are the MANUFACTURER'S coupons, and Walgreens will take them IF they scan, and I've always gotten the ones from Target to scan, and those are 2.00 coupons!

Anyway--if you aren't signed up at huggies and target, you should get signed up.

Does it say "manufacturer's coupon" on it? If so, their machine should recognize it.

Mine said both, but as long as it says "manufacturer's coupon" by the expiration date, it will work. If it's exclusively Target, then it won't. *sigh*

The ones that are IN the packs of diapers at Target are manufacturer's coupons, but they say redeemable at Target. They will work anywhere though.

Sorry you don't have any. That makes me sad. I have lots, but not the 1.50 ones--I used them up already.
