Sunday Morning Shopping

A few weeks ago I posted Sunday Morning Shopping making it very clear that I may not be out shopping on Sunday ever again (or at least not every week). This is a reader driven post having little to do with me – except I may run out to get whatever good deals you all post in comments. 😛

I also added an email notification for additional comments. Definitely read this post so you know how to opt in or out.

Ann’s Sunday Morning Shopping

Hubby and I were out bright and early this morning. No particular reason, we just were up early and so headed out to shop.

The first stop was Walgreens. I had a $1 RR expiring today, and I figured I’d get the Nutrition Peanut Butter for $2.99 with a $3 RR. The shelf was empty at my local Walgreens, so I asked the MOD (who is all sorts of awesome) for the scoop. He said that a truck was coming in Tuesday with at least 50 of each flavor, so stop back Tuesday afternoon! This is a great deal, and I may very well stop in. In the meantime, I needed something to use my $1 RR on, and it was Hubby to the rescue!

Walgreens Order

(3) Zyrtec (5ct) $6
(6) Arizona Tea 2/$1 (w/in-ad coupon)
= $23
– (3) $6 Zyrtec coupons (4/28/13 SS)
– $1 RR
= $2

At CVS the sad news about the bag tag program ending was confirmed. 🙁 At checkout I received $1 ECB for using the tag today (was not my fourth shop), and $1 in ECB for what I “paid” for the bag tag. So, next time you shop CVS make sure you scan your bag tag at check-out and you will receive a $2 ECB

From the CVS Kiosk today we (almost all of these were Hubby’s) received these CVS Coupons:

• $2/$8 Cosmetic purchase expires 5/12/13
• $1.50/$5 Deodorant purchase expires 5/12/13
• $6/$20 Facial Skincare purchase expires 5/12/13
• $3/$10 First Aid or Footcare purchase expires 5/12/13
• $2/$8 Greeting Card purchase expires 5/12/13
• Beauty Club $5 expires 5/12/13
• Dove, Caress, Lever Bar (6-8pk) or Dove Body Wash (18-24oz) $1 expires 5/5/13
• Maybelline Cosmetic $1 expires 5/5/13
• M&Ms Sharing Size, Snickers 2 Go or Twix to Go 75¢/2 expires 5/5/13
Mars or Hershey Bar 99¢ expires 5/5/13

CVS Order

Snickers Bar 99¢
– 99¢ CVS coupon
= $0

This was a great stop… Zero order and a $2 ECB from the ending of the bag tag program, and $5 ECB from the beauty club!

The other stop we made this morning was Tops. We actually spent a lot of money there, and it looks like we got very little. That is because Tops is offering a 4x gift card promo, and one of the featured cards is Tim Horton’s! We bought $200 worth of gift cards in $25 increments which make for nice keep-in-the-card or present amounts. That $200 earned us 800 in gas points which equals 80¢ off per gallon to 30 gallons or $24 off! Gas and Tim Horton’s is something we buy frequently (ok, the Tim Horton’s is far more frequent), so for us this was a no brainer!

I may end up back at Tops this week. We are down to three freezers and have no freezer room for the Marie Callendar deal. The garage fridge/freeze combo seems to have finally bit the dust. I guess we will take a look at the National Grid refrigerator program unless I can (unlikely) talk Hubby into the budget-busting Gladiator.

All-in-all I was very pleased with our shopping today. Anytime you can get a bonus for something you buy regularly, and have the bonus be for something else you buy regularly – that is a great deal!

How was your shopping this week? Did you go Sunday Morning Shopping? Did you find any great deals? Anything we should all run out for? Detail folks, details!

  1. I was sad to hear that at CVS yesterday regarding the bag tag program. I wonder how this came about with everyone getting greener?? I may do a quick Tops run today, but when WNY reaches the 70’s- who wants to shop? It has been a long winter.
    I am leaving soon to get my walk in on the bike path. 🙂
    My computer took a &%#* this week so I had to buy one. 🙁

  2. MichelleK says

    Oh my – it’s like the “old Ann” is back…. even if only for a minute…. LOL I cant stimulate any interest in this week’s deals… instead I am cooking – on a day like today… aghhhhhhhh – Just posted the Menu and Meal Plan – otherwise WE can’t function – apparently cereal every night for dinner is NOT acceptable!! Sorry about your computer Lea Ann and Ann – if you want somewhere to throw that Rumba – just let me know!!!!

  3. Hi. I was interested in buying the Tim Horton’s cards but was not sure how it works. It says earn 4 times gas points but doesn’t say when you buy 1 or 2 or more. As I look at the deals all the time it says 200 gas points when you buy 5 or 6 items specified so if you bought 8 cards wouldn’t you get 16000 points (200 gas points into 8) or it’s not based on the 200 gas points. Could you explain a little bit please? I am new to your site and really like reading your blogs. They are very informative and helpful. Thank you in advance.

    • Hi Denise, on the Tim Horton’s the promotion is 4 times value for gas points. So, instead of getting 25 points for a $25 gift card ($1 = 1 point), I got 100 gas points for a $25 card. I bought (8) $25 cards = $200 so 200 points x 4 = 800 points. The smallest card value I saw for Timmies was $15, and that would give you 60 bonus gas points this week (15 x 4 = 60).

  4. Will hit the drugstores tomorrow, but today DD#2 & I hit Nordstrom Rack where they were giving an extra 40% off all clearance! Picked up some great Cole Haan &Via Spiga shoes along with baby items for a song. Great fun! Alas, it was only for today 🙁

    And I need to start working on grocery stockpile again. No peanut butter, no spaghetti sauce, no chicken in freezer. Only thing I had a lot of was chocolate & I gave it all away. With the girls out of house, I was only one eating it. Not good.

    • Patti which one did you go to? I’ve never had much success at Nordstrom Rack… I think a pillow was the best deal I ever got. My mother loves the place and seems to find great deals regardless of what city she is in.


      • Here in Boise, ID…….long ways from you. I have been to many on west coast & it’s always a bit hit or miss. I stopped last week & didn’t find much, so really wasn’t too anxious to go today. But they must have received a shipment or two, so it was super!
        I have the best luck with accessories (and hunt every time I go for Wacoal bras). And I am lucky enough to have DD #2 here. She is a super shopper & has awesome taste. She always finds the hidden gems. I have to be careful. It’s dangerous on my pocket book to shop with her. She, however, is VERY disciplined with her $’s. Maybe something rubbed off!

  5. Very nice haul Ann!! I never didn’t shop yesterday, too gosh darn beautiful!! Finals this week, so major papers due, so I was on the deck doing my homework. It was gorgeous outside!!

    Received a call that unexpected guests were coming over, so as I was making the dip, sent hubby to Wegman’s for some gourmet bread, and since he was out… 😉
    Asked him to stop by Tops and get the Purina 1 for the dogs and some doggie treats. He did the CAT deal.

    I will go to Aldi’s probably today to pick up some almond milk and some eggs since it’s our Easter this Sunday and I want to dye some eggs. Other than that… nothing is interesting to me.
    When did they announce the green tag thing with CVS? Man am I out of the loop or what?? Yikes!!

    • No idea when it was announced Didi. I had heard rumors since January, but was surprised when I was told the program was definitely at an end on Sunday.

      Good luck with your finals! I know you will ace them!

      Happy Easter to you!


      • Thank you for the well wishes Ann!! ♥ I’m just trying to get this schooling over with, yuk!!

        Looking forward to Spanakopita more so than the lamb, lol!! 🙂
