Wow…sunscreen is EXPENSIVE!
$11.99 for just one tube. Hmmm. So here is where I try to get the best deal possible. Walgreens was having a Buy One Get One FREE sale on Banana Boat or Hawaiian Tropic products.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have a BOGO coupon to match with it but I did have a couple of $1.oo off coupons I could use.
Transaction: I found two bottles that had BONUS tubes attached to them, one was a Sport and another an Ultra Defense. This increased the amount of sunscreen I would get. Not bad. Then I noticed an in-house special sign at Walgreens that assured me I’d be able to get a FREE tube of Aloe Vera gel with the purchase of two sunscreens. Whoo Hoo! FREE! I gave my TWO $1.00 off coupons to the cashier to reduce my out of pocket. Remember, I still had to buy one of these sunscreens…which I’m okay with as I need to get it anyway and I don’t think I’ll find a sunscreen golden ticket like I did with the Dry Idea.
Results: Two bottles of sunscreen, two tubes of additional sunscreen and a FREE tube of Aloe Vera gel. I’m now stocked for the season!
Rolling Out Of Pocket: $12.04
