Walgreens ESC ending

OK, there have been rumors going around that Walgreens will be ending their ESC/Rebates so I contacted corporate and this is the response I got:
“Thank you for contacting us regarding our recent decision to evaluate the EasySaver program in its current form. Walgreens is always looking into the future. For this reason, we are looking at ways to revamp the rebate program to assist us in proceeding in an exciting direction. Although change is always intimidating we feel that it is time to develop a new loyalty program so we can offer our consumers new and improved services. You will continue to find the EasySaver Catalog in our stores through April. Please look for future advertisement regarding our new programs to come.”
So I guess its not rumors anymore, they are really going to stop doing their ESC/Rebates at the end of April!!!! Which in my opinion really really stinks because thats the main reason I shop Walgreens!!

Target march 29th-April 4th

Starting this Sunday, Target is having Pepsi 12 pack products 5/$15.00 with a $5.00 gift card for purchase of 5. If you have a Homeland close by in their weekly ad there is a man coupon for by 3 12pack pepsi product get a 12pack any diet pepsi FREE!!!!! So here is what your transactions might look like:
Transaction #1
5 12 packs=$15.00-$3 (coupon from homeland)=$12 OOP plus you get a $5 Target Gift Card

Transactions #2
5 12 packs=$15-$3 (coupon from homeland)$12.00-$5 Target GC from Trans #1=$7.00 OOP plus you get another $5 Target Gift Card
Keep repeating Transaction #2 over and over

With my calculations Transaction #2 the 12 packs will end up costing you $2 for 5 12 packs AFTER you get the Gift Card...not bad for soda!!!

Just happened to run into CVS this afternoon and found 32 load Purex Laundry Soap for 1.49 each. The price of things these days I couldn't go without getting some to put in my stockpile. It is terrible how much things cost and it is stuff that you need. YMMV

Walgreens deals

In the ad there is an coupon for Hunt's Tomato Sauce for .39 cents. The deal is.. Buy 11 at .99 cents that is $10.98 minus the in $.99 ad coupon that brings the total to $4.29.
