Katie’s Shopping List: Week of 6/10

 Posted by on June 12, 2012

There’s a lot going on this week in the world of couponing; lots of Target deals, plus a great deal on Nivea for Men products at Walgreens that’s creating a lot of buzz in the coupon blog world (aka my home!).

It looks like the advertised deal for the Nivea products may or may not work at first, depending on what store you visit; the Walgreens closest to my house did not register certain products as being included in the 2/$7 sale (even though the ad clearly states that the only exclusions are for the Q10 lotion and the eye roller products).  I got all the way to the register Sunday morning and even discussed with the store manager, only to be told that they couldn’t honor the sale price for all the products I wanted.  So I had to call the Walgreens corporate number and have the sale inclusions verified; lo and behold – this morning I got a very nice call from my friendly store manager letting me know that he was wrong and I was right (duh!!), and that he had a stash of the Nivea face scrub hidden away at the register for me!  It’s a good lesson, though – even though we disagreed at the register, I never lost my temper on him and just called corporate after I left the store.  So you see, it always pays to be RESPECTFUL and KIND, no matter how frustrated you may get with any store manager or cashier :).

As always, you can review some coupon basicsThe Lazy Girl’s Guide to Couponing, and my favorite stores’ policies to learn how to get started at each store.  Happy couponing!

DISCLAIMER: As always, these deals are based on circulars and internet searches (see our Blogroll for some of my favorite deal-sharing sites) for the BEST deals in/on stores/products I visit/use in the Baltimore metro area.  Remember that there are some great deals out there that I just don’t use (for example, we have very little use for things like baby food in our house, no matter how cheap it is!), some price/coupon value differences by store and region, and some deals that just aren’t low enough to meet my stockup price. When I do my shopping and find mistakes or corrections, I update the list as soon as possible.  In the meantime, please feel free to share corrections, deals I missed, and other useful info!
