It is simply amazing how many absolutely free things you can get every week! To keep you up to date with all the free deals, each week we publish a post outlining the freebies and moneymakers. Of course, free deals are extremely popular so you may run into times that the shelves are empty. Don’t forget to get a rain check when that happens. I love rain checks because then I never have to miss out on a free deal! Also, ask your store when they restock, and plan to shop that day if you miss the deals earlier in the week!

These deals are valid Sunday 6/03– Saturday 6/09. Check back through the week as we update this post!

    Hi Im new to couponing ..yesterday , i headed over to cvs n bought few products with my cvs card .. but the computer did not generate the EBs.. manager said he could not help too ..anyone faced this ?

    • Anonymous says:

      Poppycock! The manager can generate the EBs for you.  This happens to me every once in a while and especially if I have a raincheck that is supposed to generate EBs.  They just have to manually enter the code into the register and presto, EBs for you to walk away with in your hands!  Show them the ad or walk them to the aisle where you found your items with the tag that says the deal.  CVS is usually much better than this.

      • Anonymous says:

        Agreed!  They will manually generate them if they do not print.  I would go back in with my receipt (the bottom won’t be torn off from the EBs) and see what they can do for you.  That really sucks, I’m sorry!

  2. lightbuld coupon has ended

  3. Anonymous says:

    FYI the lightbulbs at Walmart may cost more (in my case, 2.88 a pack) depending on your location.

    Also, I was given a REALLY hard time about the ‘free’ Kotex stuff because the cashier tried to debate me on whether or not the smallest packages should be considered trial size.  Walmart was/is a big pain in the @$$ with this stuff!

    • Anonymous says:

      This is where profiling for the daydreaming young cashier comes in handy. :-) My husband calls it “cold hate” when someone is just mad that you are getting a deal and just can’t stand it. :-)

      • transformedgeneration says:

        Yeah, I’m pretty sure my Target will consider the 18 count Kotex “travel size,” as they seem to be so alert for us deal-hunters. Sometimes profiling works, sometimes it doesn’t.

        I offered her a coupon and said she was more than welcome to help herself to some panty protection ;)

        I LOVE young cashiers.  Tonight at Kroger/Fry’s I had a self scan malfunction and she was more than happy to take my coupons and even thanked ME for MY patience.  I don’t get why people get hateful about anything, but especially coupons.  I never use more than 2 or 3 like coupons in a transaction, so I’m not one of the extremists by any means.

    • I had the same problem with the schick extreem 3 razors at walmart. I called customer service corp. 1800 925 6278. I was told i could not use wags card deal. So i went to walmart.com and printed the policys. geuss what they assept them! So now they have to let me get all of them about12 in all for the price i would have paid last week! FREE! Carry the policy and rite the 1 800# on it and they will be fine then, or you will call they dont want that!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ok, this is about the 20th time this has happened to me, so I’m finally going to ask about it! This week at CVS you can get gillette razors for $.25 each by using coupons from P&G May 2012. All of my P&Gs expire the last day of the month they came out. So mine all say “expire 5/31″ WHAT!? where are you finding these coupons from the May P&G that expire on 6/19?!?!

      Lol! Confused about the couponing lingo?? Wags= Walgreens.  wyb= when you buy.

      Hi Yayas10: 
      I would suggest going to the section on here called “Beginners”.  I found all the info helpful when I was first starting out.  The lingo is on Day 5.  I hope that helps! :)

    The Gillette razor and Venus razor coupons are beepers when you try to combine the B1G1 with the $2 off.  The B1G1 is coded so that you can’t use a $ off with it like you could the Pantene.  I am sure there are many that will have cashiers that push it through anyways though.  I didn’t really need those razors anyways since I got the Schick Hydro Silk for 50 cents each. 

    • Anonymous says:

      i used the $2 off at my local target. i bought venus razor,blade cartridges, olay liquid shower soap. they gabe me the $2 off, and they let me use the BOGO Q for the razor AND the soap I paid 11.98.  BUT… i had to go back in because i was supposed to use the cash i had for something else so i returned for SAME price I paid telling associate I had more Q’s if it couldn’t be tranferred directly to my card. come time to pay again, i took my Q’s to the same counter(cuastomer service) and the same girl wasn’t there but her sup. who had helped w/ the last transaction was and wouldn’t let me use the 2 BOGO. she kept giving me the “stink eye” like i was trying to get over, i showed her the reciepts and explained i wanted no $$ just  what i had purchased a few minutes before at the same price. no go, I guess i will live and learn, and  belioeve strongly in Karma.

    anyone know if there are coups for the brain strong or the omega smart fish oil?? a couple of ppl in the brag lounge said they used some.

    • Anonymous says:

      There is a $4/1 any Brainstrong coupon in a Walgreen Answers -Vitamins and Supplements book. It is a wags coupon so they don’t need to take it. I’ve bought several and got the RR each time. BTW I found some Brainstrong at one store in the clearance for $3.24 but they scanned fot $10. The cashier and I agreed that it might not print the RR if she price adjusted it. Decided not to be greedy – $4 MM each is plenty. :-)

    • Amber Brown says:

      i know i’m a little late but the brainstrong coupon is a manufacturer coupon and DOES need to be given to the cashier each time. Otherwise they won’t get reimbursed. I know it’s in a walgreens coupon book but it has two barcodes which make it a manufacturer coupon

    I have a question about free items.  I went to target to get some free toothpaste and marinade.  Along with my order I also got some up and up soap.  Everything should of come out free with overages except the soap which is 49 cents each.  When I got up to the register everything rang up great but when she got done with all the coupons but the 4 soap coupons they wouldnt let me use any more coupons because I would even out and I had to pay tax.  My question is i’ve seen on the extreme couponing show several people even out or even get cash back so how does this work with sales tax? Thanks, Ashley.

      Target is a pain…i have avoided it like the plague for about 2 months now and am doing just fine.  I would rather not go there and avoid the headache dealing with them. 

    • Erin Watkins says:

      Target doesn’t allow cash back or overages, and they are supposed to adjust the coupons down the the price of the item if the coupon value is too high.  So you should have just had to pay the 49 cents each for the soap and then pay the sales tax.  If the coupons took your total down too low, then the cashier must not have adjusted the coupons properly. Sometimes I’ve noticed that Target does give overages, but you have to have enough items in your order to “absorb” those overages, since they won’t give cash back or let the overage pay for the tax. Does that make sense??? At Walmart (and some other stores, but not Target), you can get overage which will help pay for sales tax or even get cash back.  Please, please ignore what you see on extreme couponing….stores will often ignore their policies in order to look good on TV! Hope that helps!

      It depends on your state if you have to pay the sales tax on free items.  Their register should be able to figure this out.  I worked for Target as a kid and many times would have free items like 20 oz. soda coupons and then the customer would pay the sales tax and deposit.  Always have your Target coupon policy with you.  Even many Target shift managers don’t know their own coupon policy.

      • Anonymous says:

        Now should I be paying tax on my entire order or should I pay tax after coupons go through?

        • Anonymous says:

          Again, this will depend on your state, too. I live in Missouri, we have 2 different tax rates for food and non-food items (state versus county/city rates).  I also don’t have to pay sales tax on free items. It’s not unusual for me to walk out of CVS or Walgreens without paying a penny if I play my EB or RR right. Here’s what I think you’re talking about….Say if I bought pickle relish for $.88 and used a $.55 coupon, I only have to pay the food tax on $.33 for the final price of the item, not $.88.  This is one of the reasons I love living in Missouri.  When I lived in Iowa (there’s no sales tax on food) and say I bought a pop (there’s sales tax on pop) and had a bottle cap coupon for a free one, I would have to pay the sales tax on that item. You may have to do some recon work and decipher your receipts.  I would do a little test run with 1 food and 1 non-food item and use coupons with them. Then you will have to compare the amount of tax to the original price of the items versus the after coupon price of your receipt.  I know it’s complicated.  The registers are programmed correctly at your stores to follow the law.  Trust me, there’s big penalties to the stores for not properly collecting sales tax.  The recon work is really for your own piece of mind and in my case, shows me an even greater savings since I only pay tax on the final price of the items I actually pay.

      • I had an issue at target the other day, and stupidly did not have my policy with me because I grabbed what I was going to Wal-Mart with and wasn’t expecting to go there.  To get what I wanted to for free I had to go to the nearby Target.  I talked to a supposed manager and she said I couldn’t use the coupons I had brought.  I was using the $2/2 Kotex products (not the U by kotex ones) so each item I was grabbing was $0.99 and had a one cent overage.  The original cashier I went to got confused and asked the off duty employee(a manager of some sort apparently) behind me if he could apply the coupons and she said I couldn’t use them.  What happened in the end is that I was told customer service had to help me because as far as the manager was concerned I couldn’t use the coupons unless two kotex items added up to $2 or over.  Once getting up there, having the product double checked that it wasn’t a trial size (this target declared it “legal” because the liners are not located by trial size items, but in the actual feminine care aisle), and talking with two people about what had taken place so far I was able to use the coupons (I was using 3 at that location simultaneously) and got 6 free packs.  The breakdown before coupons Total of $5.94 and the coupons were discounted $2 for first, $2 for second, and $1.94 for the third one.  It automatically discounted the last one. Granted, this is all I picked up that day at target so ymmv.

        After this transaction I plan to go to customer service or ask for a manager before beginning a similar transaction to help alleviate confusion and frustration for all involved.  They may have a preferred way to handle such orders.

      I understand that Extreme Couponing is really just a reality TV show and it doesn’t really work that way in real life.  NO ONE gives you back FREE MONEY.  Taxes is something that I know nothing about since I live in Oregon and there is no sales tax.  I would guess though that in a state where there is a sales tax and you have coupons that allow you to get free products, you still have to pay the sales tax on them.  I would have just used the four soap coupons on a new transaction.  Even if you had to leave the line and get back in it, it would be worth it.  

      • Rosa Lopez says:

        I get FREE money back all the time so it isn’t just a tv show :) Publix and Walmart actually give you money back. It’s not much but I’ve walked away from Publix with about $6 cash and a cart full of stuff and away from walmart with a little over $15 and a bunch of stuff :)

    • Anonymous says:

      It depends on the store you are at and your state.  I was able to get the free toothpaste and liners (with overages) and also got soap.  For $6 worth of items, I only paid tax on $3 of the purchase.

      I personally find Target a lot easier to deal with than Walmart or Walgreens.  CVS is great for couponing as well.  Don’t give up on them just yet!
