I don't play the CVS game. There. I said it. The coupon-clipping and deal-matching and ending-up-with-seven-Beano-vials just doesn't appeal to me. When I DO need something, I consider all my options, shop around, and find the best deal that will get me just what I need. This weekend, I needed to print a whole bunch of pictures.
Our first step was checking out the brick-and-mortar stores. I was hoping to find 12-to-15-cent photos, and Walgreens and WalMart had 15-to-19-cent photo printing. I would have gone to Walgreens, but wanted to check online first, thinking I could do better. Thanks to a few astute bloggers, I did!
For those of you playing along at home, that's 70 free photos at CVS, which averaged out to just over five cents per 4x6 photo. The 5x7's were a dollar each, but I figured they were worth splurging for. Overall, the order averaged to about 7 cents a photo, including the larger ones. Not bad.
I got my tips on how to get the free photos here.
