I’m taking a short break from my Feeding My Family of 5 for $80/Week posts. In the meantime I’m checking out Amazon Subscribe and Save. I’ve ordered some stuff in the past and while it is easy, I’m not sure it’s the best deal for me. I have CVS and Walgreens within 10 miles of me and I think I can do better there. So, without further ado, here are my comparisons based on this weeks (5/17/15 – 5/23/15) prices.
Cottonelle Ultra Comfort Care
CVS – $6.99/18 pack
There is a coupon for .50/2 in the SmartSource flyer this week, so that makes it $6.49/18 pack or .36/roll
Amazon – $5.49/12 pack (after 15% discount and 30% coupon)
That makes it .46/roll.
Scott Bath Tissue
CVS – $5.99/Scott Unscented Bathroom Tissue Extra Soft 18 rolls
There is a coupon for .75/1 in the SmartSource flyer this week, so that makes it $5.24/18 pack or .29/roll
Amazon – 20.05/20 rolls + 2.49/shipping, no Subscribe & Save option
That makes it $1.13/roll (this was the best deal I could find)
CVS – 3/$4 120 count box
There is a coupon for .30/3 in the SmartSource flyer this week, so that makes it $3.70/3 or $1.23/box
Amazon – $9.23/8 pack 120 count box (after 15% discount)
That makes it $1.15/box
CVS -$6.99 for a 6 pack
There is a coupon for $.50/1 in the SmartSource flyer this week, so that makes it $6.49 or $1.08/roll
Amazon – $23.49/24 rolls (after 15% discount and a $2 coupon)
That makes it .98/roll
Scott Paper Towels
CVS -$5.99 for a 6 pack
There is a coupon for $.75/1 in the SmartSource flyer this week, so that makes it $5.24 or .87/roll
Amazon – $33.99/30 rolls (after 15% discount)
That makes it $1.13/roll
So, aside from the Kleenex and Viva paper towels, CVS is definitely a better deal. Also, I don’t get the best coupons! Some places get .50/3 Kleenex and $1/1 Viva. Plus, this week, all the items listed above are part of a buy $15, get $5 ECB back. Also, if you’re part of SavingStar, their freebie for the week is 12.6 oz Ajax dish liquid which is also part of this deal. There are so many combinations here.
My plan is this:
Cottonelle 18 pack – 6.49
Scott Choose-a-Size 6 pack – 5.24
3 boxes Kleenex – 3.70
Ajax – .99 (you don’t need this get to $15, but since it’s free…)
Total – 16.42 + tax
Get back $5 ECB for next time + .99 SavingStar rebate, so $10.43 after rebates. Not bad! To buy the same amount of items on Amazon would be $18.51 + Ajax.
