SavingStar members can get a 3 percent discount on Elmer's Glue as well as $1.25 on the purchase of three boxes of Ziploc bags. Coupons.com has a $1/3 coupon for the Ziploc bags as well.
Ziploc also is a partner with Recyclebank, and specially marked packages have codes that you can enter on the site to earn points to be used on various rewards. One of those rewards is a $5 CVS gift card for 1,500 points. Although the point value sounds intimidating, it's easy to earns hundred of points in a short time by doing fun activities and watching short videos related to recycling.
BIC is currently running a an instant win game on Facebook where participants can win prizes by writing about what they like about the back-to-school season. BUT if you don't win instantly, you get a $1.50/2 coupon for any two BIC products. You can play the game once a day to get more coupons. But if you end up winning something, you no longer are allowed to participate in the game. I won a BIC Velocity pen last year and absolutely fell in love with it.
Lysol has 50 cent coupons on its website for the disinfectant spray and the disposable wipes.
Kellogg's Raisin Bran and Frosted Flakes are pictured in the CVS ad as eligible family size cereals, and Coupons.com has a $1/3 coupon that can be used on those two Kellogg's cereals. Also, the Kellogg's website has a $1/2 coupon for Kellogg's Raisin Bran.
If it's hard to decide what to buy, this deal can be repeated twice in one week. I may end up doing that myself when I shop at CVS this weekend. Be back later this week with beauty deals.
