Black Friday Sales at Rite Aid and CVS Offer Free Items!!!

Black Friday Sales Fliers at CVS and Rite Aid Offer Free Stuff

As promised, here is the list of free items you can get at the Black Friday sales at CVS and Rite Aid. Walgreens used to always participate in this, but are not doing it the same way this year. While you can get half off deals on some items at Walgreens, Rite Aid and CVS were the only ones offering free items.

If you aren’t familiar with these Black Friday sales, let me explain how they work. First, you need to either already have a store card for Rite Aid and CVS, or get one before you go shopping for Black Friday.

The CVS Extra Bucks Rewards Program

CVS has a program called Extra Bucks Rewards Program. When you buy certain items, that are advertised in their flyer with an Extra Bucks explanation near it, you will get some or all of the money you spend back in the form of a paper coupon. This coupon comes out of the register at the end of your order. The Extra Bucks coupons do have an expiration date of one month, and they have to be used by that time.

The Rite Aid Plenti Points Program

Rite Aid has a similar program but it is called the Plenti Points Program. You buy certain items that are advertised in the flyer as an item that will earn you Plenti Points, and the points go onto your store card. Each 100 points equals $1.00. You have a certain amount of time to use them as well, but I don’t know the exact length of time you have to use your points at Rite Aid.

These deals are amazing and if you play your cards right and get there before the stores run out of the items, you can do very well for Christmas gifts/stocking stuffers and get a lot bought in one day. They do not give rainchecks on these items. You do have to shell out the money in advance when you purchase the items, but once you do it, and use your Extra Bucks or Plenti Points in a future visit, it means you go all the stuff you purchased for free!

There are lots of sales going on at both CVS and Rite Aid that will save you money, and some of the sales go through the weekend but for this post, I am only going to focus on the free items you can get from these two stores. Take a look at the flyers if you can before you go and make your list so you don’t miss any deals that will save you money.

Both stores are open tomorrow, on Thanksgiving Day. These sales both run through Saturday. Personally, I think employees should be home with their families on Thanksgiving so I don’t shop until Black Friday, but that choice is yours.

Here we go:

CVS Black Friday Deals: (The sale is from Thursday through Saturday)

Colgate Max or Total Toothpaste is $3.50 – scan your store card at the coupon machine inside the store and you will get a $3.00 off coupon, making the toothpaste 50 cents. BUT there is also a manufacturer’s coupon that recently came out, and an online coupon available so if you use one of those, the toothpaste is FREE!

Physician’s Formula Make Up is $9.00 ( certain ones only) but you get a $9.00 Extra Buck back so it makes the makeup FREE!

Altoids Smalls, Skittles, Necco Wafers, Starburst or any Wrigley’s Gum singles are 99 cents and you get 99 cents back which make the candy FREE!

GUM Brand Deep Clean or Sensitive Care toothbrushes are $2.50 for a 2-pack, but you get $2.50 back which makes it FREE! There is a limit of 1 on most items but you can do this twice and end up with 4 toothbrushes.

Zim’s Max-Freeze Pain Relievers or Foot Cream is $5.00 and you get $5.00 back in Plenti Points, making it FREE!

I would suggest you get the paper tomorrow on Thanksgiving Day so you can get the Black Friday fliers and see for yourself what is on sale, and make a list before you go to the stores. If you don’t want to do that, get a flyer at the store and take a minute to circle what you want, or write a list so you can stay organized. Sometimes the stores will have the sale items near each other so ask if you can’t find something.

I LOVE these Black Friday sales at Rite Aid and CVS and it is the highlight of my Black Friday every year! I will post pictures of what I got after I go shopping on Friday.

Money Saving Deals You Don’t Want to Miss This Week, Including Free Coffee

Free Coffee on 9/29/17 for National Coffee Day

Hello all my money saving friends. There are some deals out there I just don’t want you to miss this week so I am posting about them and hopefully, you will read this post in time.

Friday is National Coffee Day and Sunday is International Coffee Day

If you enjoy a good cup of coffee, you won’t want to miss this special day. On Friday, 9/29/17, various coffee hot spots are giving away free cups of coffee in honor of National Coffee Day. Some are for Friday only, and some go through the weekend until Sunday night because Sunday, October first is International Coffee Day. Here’s a list of where you can get free coffee:

Friday Only

Wawa – 1 free cup of coffee, any size

Dunkin Donuts – buy a medium sized cup of coffee or larger and get one free medium-sized coffee. Use the extra cup for a friend, or take it home for yourself!

Cinnabon – get a free 12-ounce cup of coffee all day long

Cumberland Farms – Text the word FREECOFFEE to 64827 to get a coupon for a free cup of coffee from Cumberland Farms

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday

 

Krispy Kreme – get a free hot or iced premium blend coffee Friday, Saturday and Sunday

 7-11 – 7Rewards members get one free cup of coffee per day on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. This can be for hot coffee or 7-11 chillers.

Enjoy your free coffee!

Good Deals at CVS This Week

This week, until Saturday, September 30, you can get some good money saving deals at CVS. You will need to get a CVS card in order to take advantage of these deals and to collect your Extra Bucks Rewards, which are like coupons to use on your next purchase, for those of you who are not familiar with the Extra Bucks Rewards program. The Extra Bucks have an expiration date on them of approximately one month so you have one month from the day the register prints them out to use them.

FREE CANDY

The best deal is something that is free. If you buy a bag of Trolli candy for $2.00, you get an Extra Bucks reward of $2.00 at the register, making it free. Just don’t forget to use the Extra Bucks coupon before it expires. Not a candy person? Give it to a friend with children or save it for a stocking stuffer at Christmas.

MAYBELLINE MASCARA

I love the Maybelline New York Great Lash mascara because it is the only one I can wear all day without it smudging. The money saving deal here is that you buy 2 for $5.99 each and you will get an Extra Bucks coupon at the register for $5.00. That brings your cost down to $6.98. There were also coupons in the Sunday paper recently for $2.00 off one Maybelline product so that brings your cost down to $4.98 if you have 1 coupon and $2.98 for two if you have two coupons. You can probably guess that I had two coupons so paid $1.49 for each mascara. I love it when we can combine manufacturer’s coupons with Extra Bucks. What a great deal!

Freebie Fridays

Some stores have started giving an item free each week which is very exciting. I will be writing a more detailed post about Freebie Fridays, but for now, I just wanted to mention this because tomorrow is Friday and I don’t want you to miss out. If you live near  Kroger, IGA or K-Mart store, make sure to download their coupon for the free item.

For the items from Kroger, the coupon is downloaded to your card and you have two weeks to pick it up so you don’t have to actually shop on that day, but you do have to download the item to your card each Friday.

For IGA and K-Mart Friday Freebie items, you have to go to the store and pick up your item on Friday, Saturday or Sunday because, after Sunday of each week, your free item coupon expires. You give them your telephone number when you check out and if you have downloaded the item, the amount of the item will come off your bill.

If you know of any other stores that offer Freebie Friday items, please leave the information in the comment section below.

If you would like to share the information in this post with your friends, especially the free coffee offer for tomorrow, please feel free to use any of the sharing buttons below to get the word out.

Happy Saving!
