It seems that not everyone is in the know when it comes to BOGO. In shopping parlance, BOGO is the abreviation for Buy One, Get One Free. And if you even scanned the weekend inserts, you know that local pharmacy/drug stores are going BOGO in a big way. Here's a rundown:
RiteAid devoted the entire cover of its Sunday insert to the BOGO. They have everything from vitamins and ibuprofen to cosmetics, bath soap, backpacks and Butterfingers. They also have a center spread on BOGO beauty products. These are all name brands like Olay, Nivea, L'oreal and Almay. RiteAid also has Arrowhead bottled water for $3.99 a case.
Longs is also big on BOGO with L'oreal and Maybelline products. They also have good prices on grocery items like 32oz Gatorade for $1; Dryer's Fruit Bars 2/$5; S&W beans for 89-cents a can and lots of cereal for $2.50 a box. In the personal care aisle, check out Aquafresh toothpaste for 99-cents; Q-tips and Suave deodorant, also 99-cents.
Walgreens has dozens of coupon items for 39-cents. Get out the scissors or just bring in the whole insert - it's that good. General Mills cereals are $1.99 a box; mandarin oranges and sliced mushrooms are 50-cents a can. Bounty paper towels are 3/$5.
All three stores have great deals on back-to-school supplies. You don't have to spend a lot of money for markers, pencils, filler paper or sticky notes.
