Okay, I feel led to share this with you b/c I think it's great! I am not an expert by any means and I'm not trying to be like one of 'those' blogs in which they feature good deals or money tips but I have some great advice about saving money on diapers! This info works for me and it may not be for you so keep that in mind! In my opinion, there is no reason to ever spend more than $6 on a pack of name-brand diapers unless you are picky! This week I was able to purchase 6 packs of Huggies for $21! That is $3.50 a pack!!!! Which is way better than generic pricing! Here's how!! (Bare with me as I explain!)
First let me say, you have to be willing to put a little time and energy into making this work and have patience but if saving money is money is important to you....it's definitely worth the hassle!!!!
I used to like Pampers and also was open to generic brand diapers but soon realized that Huggies go on sale a lot! Normally Huggies diapers are about $11, but at least once a month, CVS & Walgreens sells them for $9 a pack. And if you go to http://www.coupons.com/, you can print a coupon for $3 off the Huggies pure and natural diapers. BUT-this coupon works on ANY Huggies diaper. (The pure and natural diapers never/rarely go on sale!) So here was my money-saving strategy this week! This week at CVS, Huggies diapers are on sale for $9 a pack. If you buy 2 packs then you receive $4 in Extra Care Bucks back. ECB's are like free money. Basically, it is $4 worth of CVS money to use on another purchase. I purchased 2 packs at $18 and used 2 -$3 off coupons from coupons.com; therefore, making my total $12 plus tax, but I had 2 ECB's from another purchase that I used towards this purchase so I actually purchased my diapers for $10! Now on the coupons--I had 3 already from last month but I printed two more at my home and two more at my local library b/c you can only print 2 per computer and you can always find a diaper sale to use these on! Now, I went back to CVS yesterday b/c I had my 4 ECB's from the other day, 3 more $3 off coupons, and a 'spend $25 and get $5 off 'CVS coupon and I purchased 3 packs of diapers and was able to get those for $10 plus tax!! Okay-stay with me!!! And, now today I plan to go to Walgreens b/c they have Huggies diapers on sale also, but are not offering any kind of ECB/register reward back with purchase. (that's why I originally purchased my diapers at CVS.) But, today I'm going to Walgreens to buy one pack b/c I have one more $3 off Huggies coupon and $5 worth of Walgreens register rewards from another purchase made which are just like CVS's ECB's. The diapers are $9 a pack there. I will have $3 off coupon plus $5 in register rewards making the diaper pack $1 plus tax!!!!! The sales are always different in that you may not get to receive any kind of store reward for you purchase but if you do it makes it even better! CVS has all kinds of store coupons! They email me one at least 3 times a month. Also, if you go to their pharmacy and ask for the coupon booklet there are all kinds of deals like 'spend $20, get $4 off' and that $20 is before coupons are used! I've really been trying to coupon and bargain shop more and I have a ton to learn but this is one thing that I've come across and think is great! The best advice is to print as many of those Huggies $3 off coupons as possible! Ask family to do it for you, go to the library, etc.! (Last fall they had a $5 off coupon for a while and I was able to buy over a years worth of wipes for less than $10!!!!) One more thing...if you visit this site and register http://www.caregiversmarketplace.com/FrameSetup.asp, then you can send in all your huggies receipts and receive 75 cents back per huggies item purchased! I have not done this yet but plan to and it will increase my saving even more!
I know this is a lot of info but you can do it and it's really not that difficult once you do it! I'd be more than happy to walk you through it over the phone or in person if it is possible! It's a little mind boggling at first but so, so worth it in my opinion!
