Learn insider tricks to save big bucks and find the best deals at drugstores.
Step 6: Shop sales
Sometimes, this means buying what you don’t need. It sounds counterintuitive, but you can make money with this strategy. Let’s say you’ve got toothpaste at home but CVS has some on sale for $3, and you get $2 in Extra Bucks upon purchase. You clipped a manufacturer’s coupon for $1.50 off. Pay $1.50 for the toothpaste and get $2 in Extra Bucks. You come out 50 cents ahead and don’t have to buy toothpaste for a while.
