Unbelievable Deal on Newborn Diapers at CVS
Yesterday I saw on the 30 dollar weekly grocery challenge blog that Pampers Swaddlers were on clearance at CVS for $2.99, AT SOME STORES. I decided it was worth a trip, since I was near the CVS.
I know from experience that CVS puts items on clearance when the packaging of a product, or the product itself, is being updated. So I looked for any older looking packaging first of all. With the advent of the scanner at the front of the store, its easy to check prices before buying. I took 4 or 5 packages of Pampers Swaddlers to the scanner and sure enough, the Pampers Swaddlers "Sensitive" in the NB size ONLY were on clearance for $2.99.
I had just received some high dollar Pampers coupons in the mail from Vocal Point: $3.00, and 3 or 4 for $1.50. I also had a $2.00 one in my coupon organizer. So after using the coupons and a $1.00 extra buck coupon, my total out of pocket was about $4.00. IN ADDITION, through today you get a $1.00 extra buck as a result of buying Pampers.
So I got basically about $40.00 worth of pampers for $3.00!
Now, you may be wondering why a grandmother of an almost 3 year old is buying newborn diapers. Number one, they make great baby shower gifts and at the moment I know of at least 2 expecting mothers that could use them; and Number Two, you never know when a new grandbaby will come on the scene. :o)
So, my advice is IF YOU ARE NEAR A CVS OR PLANNING TO GO TO CVS, check to see if your store has these diapers on clearance. I would not make a special trip, because at my store there were only 4 packages available. Just look next time you are there.
While you are there you might be able to get some almost free Pantene shampoo that is on clearance too if you have any Pantene coupons.
