More Savings Monday: Candy deals this week and Target holiday markdown schedule


If you have procrastinated in buying Halloween candy, it’s not too late! 🙂 There are still some decent deals this week:

CVS – today only

All Hershey’s/Mars/Nestle fun size (9.5-13.3 oz) candy -2/$3 (after today it will be 2/$5) – if they don’t have any in stock, make sure you get a raincheck. You will probably be able to pick it up later in the week after they receive their shipments!

Use the following coupons:

Nestle $1/1 printable coupon:

$1/2 M&Ms or Mars bagged candy from 9/28 and 10/12 RP inserts


All “Treat size” candy – 2/$4 (displayed in ad: Butterfinger, Snickers, Reese’s, Skittles which means you’re covered for Mars/Hersheys/Nestle)

TARGET HOLIDAY MARKDOWN SCHEDULE (handy for post Halloween and for other upcoming holidays!)

50% off the day after holiday, for three days

75% off the fourth day after holiday, for three days

90% off the seventh day after holiday, for 1-2 days

*Of course, your experience may vary! I have found that a lot of the stuff goes the first day after the holiday, but at Christmas time, there is still usually a lot of wrapping paper/gift bags/boxes left when it goes to 90% off (if you get there first thing in the morning), and so I always stock up on my wrapping for the next year at that time


Since I live in the land of no K-Mart, I haven’t really mentioned their “Super Double Deals” even though I am envious every time I read the postings with the insane hauls that people got for next to nothing on message boards I frequent. So, if you are NOT in the land of no K-Mart, you may want to check out this thread here:

Tide – $5.49 (use $1/1 coupon)
Pop Tarts/Rice Krispie treats – $1.69 ($1/2 from recent Kelloggs insert, $10 MIR if you buy 10 items)

My scenarios (I decided to include these if people are new to CVSing and need ideas):
Transaction #1 – Buy Claritin $8.99 and Colgate $2.99
Use $4 Claritin from last week’s inserts, $1.50 Colgate from All You and $2/10 CVS coupon
Spend $4.48, get $3

Transaction #2 – Buy Cover Girl Wet Slicks $5.99, buy 2 Cover Girl Lip color $5.99 – use Cover Girl $1/1, Cover Girl BOGO free, and $2/10 CVS
Spend $2.99, get $5.99 – I needed new lip stick, so I’m excited about this 🙂
**If you are new to CVSing and have this week’s coupons, this is a nice way to start

Transaction #3 – Buy Tide, 2 Dawn, and Colgate – use Tide $1/1, 2 Dawn .50/1, Colgate $1.50/1 and $2/10 CVS
Spend $4.96, get $2

More scenario ideas (great if you are new to CVSing and don’t want to spend a lot of $$)
Transaction #1:
Buy Cover Girl Wet Slicks $5.99, buy 2 Cover Girl Lip color $5.99 – use Cover Girl $1/1, Cover Girl BOGO free, and $2/10 CVS Spend $2.99, get $5.99

Transaction #2:
Buy Pantene Pro-V Shampoo/Cond/Styling Product- 3/$9.99, Colgate – $2.99

Use another $2/10 CVS coupon, the $1.50 printable Colgate coupon, the free Pantene styling product coupon from this week’s inserts, and your $5.99 ECB from the CoverGirl deal. Spend .16 (plus tax depending on your area), get $4 in ECBs.

Transaction #3:
Colgate – $2.99 – use $1.50 manufacturer’s coupon – OOP $1.49
Dawn- .99 Cents – .50 Cent MFR = .49 cents OOP
Use your $2 ECB (They will have to adjust it down to $1.98), and get another $2 ECB! 🙂

SO……for $3.15 (and possibly tax), you get all of that stuff and still have $4 in ECB to spend next week!

**The CoverGirl Wetslicks and BOGO scenario ONLY works if you can find the Outlast lipsticks for $5.99 (the ad says prices start at $4.99, but my stores don’t have anything under $9.99). If you can’t, you need to revamp the scenario because if you try to buy two Outlast lipsticks for $9.99 and the $5.99 Wetslicks together, it will take the “free” off the $5.99 automatically and then with your coupon, one of the $9.99 will come off, but you will still end up paying $8.99.

Target deals: I haven’t seen the ad (we get the paper on Sunday) or ad scans, but I read about this on a few different sites. Apparently it is not in all areas, so check your ads first.

Kellogg’s products are on sale 4/$9. Buy 4, get a $5 gift card. Items I have seen listed are: Rice Krispie Treats (8 ct), Pop Tarts (12 ct), Special K bars, Fudge Shoppe cookies, and Cheez Its. There are $1/2 coupons for many of these items in the recent Kelloggs insert. There are .50/1 Pop Tart coupons on There are also Vocal Point coupons for $1/1 off the Special K bars and the $10 MIR when you buy 10 products if you haven’t done that yet. The beauty of this Target deal is you can buy 8 items (or 12 if you are going for the MIR) and get 2-3 $5 gift cards.

Here’s a Pop Tarts deal: Buy 10 Pop Tarts, use 5 $1/2 manufacturer’s coupons, use 10 .50/1 Target printable coupons. Spend $12.50, get $10 Target gift cards (send in MIR, get $10)

(There are LOTS of Kelloggs coupons on ebay NOW, but there won’t be as people see this deal…and what is available will be way expensive….check NOW!)
