Easter Candy Galore!

It seems like every year when I am buying candy for Easter baskets/Christmas stockings I am just blown away by how much candy costs. I went to Walgreens today to see if I could find any good deals to fill up Easter baskets. I was able to purchase everything below, and I spent...

$0.60...and for those of you with no Register Rewards, I did it using zero Register Rewards.

I purchased:
1 Easter Egg filled with M&Ms/Snickers $0.75
1 Snickers Creme Filled Egg $0.29
-used coupon for $1.00 off 2 Mars Easter Candy (found in 3/20 and 4/10 RedPlum inserts)
Final Price: $0.04 for both

After using the coupons, I ended up paying $0.02 for each piece of candy...a definite STOCK UP price. I had quite a few coupons...some from the newspapers (purchased and given to me) and some from printable coupons (no longer available).

Note...I did this in 3 different transactions. There is a limit of 6 Snickers Creme Eggs priced at $0.29 per transaction, so I had to break up my trip.

I went to the Walgreens across from HEB, and they had a large supply of candy. This sale will go through Saturday night, so if you are interested you might want to head over there.


  1. Where at in the store did you find the candy? I went on Tuesday and the Snickers box was empty. Is there more left? I planned on doing this deal tomorrow but I don't want to go to the store if they are out. Thanks!!!

  2. I went to the Walgreens on Sherwood Way. They had all the candy on the Easter aisle. There was a full box of the Snickers Creme Eggs and several boxes of the M&M eggs. There were additional boxes of the M&M eggs further back on the shelves. Hope this helps.
