With Christmas approaching I've been on the lookout for some good battery deals. I used to buy my batteries at Costco, but recently I've found that I can get them cheaper with coupons at other stores.
For example, CVS sells 4 AA/AAA batteries for $4.99 - at full price it's a rip off for sure! Last week CVS had these batteries on sale for $2.99. I had coupons for $1.50 off any Duracell batteries which brought the cost down to $1.50 each. They also were running a promotion where you'd get $5 in ExtraCare Bucks if you purchase $15 in Duracell batteries.
So I bought 5 packs (total cost $14.95 - CVS will accept a few cents shy of the amount). I also used 5 $1.50 coupons for a total $7.50 off, which brought the total down to $7.45. I then received $5 of ExtraCare Bucks, bringing my net cost down to $2.45 for 20 batteries. Not bad, and definitely cheaper than Costco.
Now we'll be all set for batteries for Christmas presents!
