FREE with Q's | Drugstores 10/24/10- 10/30/10



As I mentioned here, FREE with Q's is a new weekly feature here at TNFM. My hope is that I can make your weekend drugstore trips a little easier (and packed with more savings) by highlighting the deals you can get for FREE with Q's (coupons).

Whether you're planning on stockpiling those items for your family or simply donating what you can't/won't use, FREE with Q's means more bang for your hard-earned bucks. Besides, FREE is my personal fave flavor! ;-)

Please note that these deals (Drugstores) include items that may be FREE with Q's after you calculate the impact of Register Rewards (Walgreens), ECBs (CVS), or Single Check Rebates/UP Rewards (Rite Aid) on your overall total.  If you are new to couponing or are unsure about how to work the deals at each drugstore, I have linked to a tutorial for each drugstore for your convenience. 

**---------------------------------**

**If you have Register Rewards from previous weeks to spend, you can use them like "Walgreens Money" to get your items for FREE!  To learn how to work the deals at Walgreens, read my Walgreens: How to Save Big tutorial post here.**

**If you have ECBs from previous weeks to spend, you can use them like "CVS Money" to get your items for FREE! To learn how to work the deals at CVS, read my CVS: How to Save Big tutorial post here.**

(FYI: I donate these when I can get them for free to my local food pantry, Goodwill, and also to local nursing homes/senior centers.  Since Type II Diabetes is reaching near epidemic proportions in our nation, these monitors are much needed by many folks who can't afford them.)
