Walgreens - HOT deal on Gillette Bodywash and deodorant!


I stopped in Walgreens today because my $2 Noxema RR was expiring. I think I scored a pretty good deal on Gillete Bodywash and deodorant.

This week, the Gillette bodywash is on sale for 3/$10 and triggers a $3 RR wyb 3
(apparantly at my store they are also ringing up buy 1 get 1 50% off).
The Gillette deodorant is on sale buy 1 get 2nd 50% off @ $4.99 regular price
The Softsoap bodywash is 2/$6 and earn $4 RR wyb 2
The Scotch tape is buy 1 @ $1.99 get 2 free (with in ad coupon!)

Here is how I maximized these deals and successfully rolled my Noxema RR:

4 Gillette bodywash $13.34
4 Gillette deodorant $ 19.96
2 Softsoap bodywash $6
3 Scotch tape $5.97
1 clearance candy @ .24 (sorry I ate it, so not pictured, lol)
-$19.96 - 4 buy Gillette bw get deod free 5-1 PG
-$8 - 4 $2 off Gillette bw 5-15 RP insert
-$5 - 2 50% on the Gillette deodorant
-$3.34 - 2 50% on the Gillette bodywash
-$3 - 3 $1 Scotch tape IP(no longer online but I had some left over from the last time they were available ;)
-$3.98 - Scotch tape in ad coupon
 -$2 Noxema RR
Final cost : .23 + .02 tax = .25

I earned a $3 for the Gillette bwash and a $4 for the Softsoap making today's run a profit of $4.75

$2 RR + .25 oop - $3 - $4 = $4.75 PROFIT

I'm curious - why did you get 4 of the gillette bodywash if you only need 3 for the $3 RR? was it to match up and get 4 free deodorant or is there another combination I'm missing? I would think it would have been a better deal to just get 3 and 3?

Anon, it was a better deal to do in 4s since the items were also on sale buy 1 get 1 50% off:

The way I did it:
4 bw 13.34
4 deod 19.96
-19.96 for bogo coupons
-$8 bw coupons
-$5 b1g1 50% sale on deod
-$3.34 b1g1 50% sale on bw
= -$3

If I had done 3
3 bw 10.00
3 deod 14.97
-14.97 for bogo coupons
-$6 bw coupons
-$2.50 b1g1 50% sale on deod
-$1.67 b1g1 50% sale on bw
= -$0.17

Thanks so much for your clarification. I actually got to my store last night and saw that my store also had them marked as buy one get one half off. I did a little math since I only had 3 of the $2 bw coupons but 7 of the bogo deo wyb bw coupons. I saw the benefit of buying 4 even without the extra bw coupon or without the benefit of increments of 3 for the rr. (how's that for a lot of abbreviations?!?! LOL)

Thanks for explaining - I am glad I saw your transaction even though I didn't put together the puzzle pieces before going to the store. I had missed the deo matchup so you helped me score a TREMENDOUS deal! Made my errands last night totally worth the trip! :)

Love your blog - even though I miss your Kroger posts. But, I would act the same way given the TX circumstances. :)
