It is Freebie Friday time again. My mailbox was overflowing with magazines this week. Rollingstone seems like it comes every other week. It must be a bimonthly publication?
Family Fun magazine, Rollingstone magazine, Purina One Smartblend with $4.00 coupon, W magazine, Super Chevy magazine, coupon for free Schick Hydro razor and dollar off amounts, Tide pod, coupon for free Pepsi Next 2 liter, Elmer’s Probond Advanced
Pantene Expert Age Defy shampoo and conditioner with $5 coupon, Kotex bracelet with $1.00 coupon
TIP: Reserve your coupons, like the free Schick razor coupon, and redeem them when the drugstores are offering incentives to purchase those particular products.
These programs, such as Walgreens’ balance rewards, register rewards and CVS’ extra care bucks, allow you to receive incentives that can be used on a future purchases. If you use coupons for free items on your initial purchase then any savings you earn beyond using the free coupons are bonuses. We’ll explain drugstore reward programs in depth in a future post.
If you are eager to learn more about these drugstore programs check out these links. They include information on Walgreens’ balance reward program, register reward program and CVS’ extra care buck program.
UPDATE: I was able to redeem my Schick razor coupon to receive a free razor and earn $4 from a Walgreens’ register reward. So now I can use the $4 register reward to buy something else in the store. The best part is I didn’t spend any money out of pocket in order to earn the register reward. I did pay tax on the razor. Unfortunately, you can never get out of paying tax on taxable merchandise regardless if the coupon is for a free item or not. Bummer
