End of the Week (8/5-8/11/12) Shopping at CVS, Rite Aid, and Walgreens

It’s the end of the week… for many of you that means it is payday, and this is when you would be doing your shopping.  I get paid only once a month, so my shopping tends to get done that week primarily, unless there is a deal that is too good for me to miss, there is something on stock up prices that I need more of in my stockpiles, or that I can rollover my rewards into buying with getting an equal amount or more rewards back for getting.  This week there are no deals that I need to add to my stockpiles that badly, not that I will even spend $0.80 for shampoo/conditioners.  But if you don’t have a stockpile like mine yet, then these are what I would recommend grabbing this week while they are at such great stock-up prices.

CVS:  

Remember if you have any Extra Bucks from last week or previous transactions you can roll these over into the purchase of these items to make the cost even less out of pocket.  These deal ideas below are given under the assumption you are just starting, and have no extra bucks to start with.
