if U really need more L’Oreal…

photo.JPGSaw this on another site, but naturally had to personally test it. Good thing, too, because it did not work os posted. Walgreens has a points deal on L’Oreal Advanced products – Buy 2 and earn 2,000 points. You also get 50 points for every $1 spent on beauty and personal care through 8//30 (have them scan the coupon in the ad). There is also a RR promotion where you get a $1.50 RR when you buy two products or $3 RR when you buy three. You know which direction this post is going, right?

Note that the RR only prints when you purchase shampoo and/or conditioner, not all haircare products.  Trust me on this…lots of void transactions doing test runs.

Use the coupons in 7/27 rp (Chicago had Nesquik on the cover) and you’ll be scoring some really cheap products after RR and points.  How cheap depends on your coupons.

Dollar Tree to buy Family Dollar!

Good news for me ’cause the closest FD store near me creeps me out while I love everything DT (staff, selection, everything) – maybe FD will get a reboot!. Here’s the story from The New York Times:

Updated, 7:06 a.m. | Dollar Tree agreed on Monday to buy Family Dollar Stores for about $8.5 billion in cash and stock, uniting two of North America’s biggest deep-discount retailers.

The deal comes amid pressure on Family Dollar by the activist investor Carl C. Icahn, who urged the company last month to explore a sale of itself. But Family Dollar said in a statement that it had been exploring strategic options since the winter.

Under the terms of Monday’s deal, Dollar Tree will pay $74.50 for each share of Family Dollar. The bid is made up of $59.60 a share in cash and Dollar Tree stock worth about $14.90. Including debt, the deal values the target company at about $9.2 billion.

The bid represents a premium of nearly 23 percent to Family Dollar’s closing price on Friday.  Read the entire article here.

Jewel bargain shopping

Jewel has Febreze on 2/$5. I grabbed “a few” and used the BOGO coupon from the August P&G stacked with the $1 coupon from the July P&G. I also got $5 off instantly but don’t know why.  There is an instant deal showing in Wednesday’s ad, so maybe it got programmed in already!  My OOP was about 50¢ a can.

Dietz & Watson sausages are either 3/$10 or 2/$6, depending on variety.  Use the $2 D&W coupon in the current Big Book of Savings for some really, really cheap lunches and dinners!  Check the dates (you have to pull the sausages out of the cardboard sleeve to see them – some people are reporting expired packs.  These freeze great and will work very well in Fall dinners of stews and jambalaya… Don’t delay ’cause the sale ends tomorrow.

Bacon (applewood smoked) was on sale for $4.99 with $1 peelies and since we’re heading into prime BLT season…
