Cheap Diapers at CVS

If you’re in need of diapers, especially if you like Pampers, the basic deal is buy 7 packs of Pampers ($8.99 each, the 7th will be free if you have 2-3 days between transactions) and get 2-$10 gift cards for spending $30 (x2) on select items.  You’ll have to do two visits b/c the free coupon takes a few days to print.  Even without coupons, this is a pretty good deal!
The gift card choices might vary by region/store, but my ad shows a CVS gift card (better than ECB b/c it can be broken down into smaller amount and doesn’t expire!!), an American Express (yeah– use it anywhere like to buy groceries) or a few stores/restaurants (great for Christmas presents!).

Here’s the breakdown:

Transaction 1:
Buy 6 packs of diapers @8.99 each: $53.94
buy before Thursday (I’m not exactly sure how long it takes for the free diapers to print — be on the safe side and buy them today or Wednesday!)
Use (3) $1.50/2 coupons from the 10/2 P&G
Pay $49.44
Get $10 gift card

Wait a few days and do transaction 2:
1 pack of diapers
FREE! (this coupon prints at the coupon machine — print it before you get to the register)
Get $10 gift card

Total OOP: $49.44, get (2) $10 gift cards = Net: $29.44 for 7 jumbo packs of Pampers ($4.20 a pack or, if I remember packaging sizes, I think this boils down to $0.08 for a size 1 to $0.13/size 4)

A few other notes:

  • I have not tried this yet, but I’m assuming (based on past purchases) that the 7th pack, even though free, will still trigger the second gift card b/c you purchased the item and the free coupon is a CVS coupon that will come off later.  Proceed at your own risk!  (I plan to go to the store today…)
  • Check out the ad for other things you might want to combine with this deal — you can earn up to 5 gift cards a week!  I already have 1 free coupon, so I’m actually going to do a modified version this deal, buying WISK detergents as well.
  • If you wanted less OOP, buy 4 first to trigger the first gift card ($35.96 – $3.00 in coupons = $32.96, get $10 gift card)  Buy 2 more and use the first gift card ($17.98 – $1.50 in coupon – $10 gift card = $6.48).  Wait a few days, “buy” free one, get $10 gift card.  The net is the same, but you’ll have only put out $39.44 and have only (1) $10 gift card left.
