With the kids off to grandma’s for the evening, I headed to Duane Reade to peruse the aisles for savings without the interruptions. I don’t mind shopping with them, but without them, I find that I can search at my leisure and find great deals to be one happy and satisfied customer. I knew the ology products were on sale and I made sure to take my Balance Rewards card with me.
While alone at my local Duane Reade, I looked through the Duane Reade Happy and Healthy magazine to see what was on sale and checked what I needed. Right away, the ology products stood out since I needed Dish Soap, Hand Soap and bath products too. While a product is on sale, I like to try it out to take advantage of the savings. To see my whole trip to Duane Reade, check out my Google + story too.
I was happy to see that ology had products that I needed already at home and in the Happy and Healthy flier, they were Buy 1 Get 1 1/2 off. So, I purchased the Hand Soap, Dish Soap, and Body Wash. They are plant based and have no artificial ingredients. Even better, they are endorsed by Healthy Child Healthy World. This make it easier for a mom to make healthier choices when choosing products.
At checkout, I used my Balance Reward card to colelct points on my purchase. At this time, if you spend $30 on Duane Reade/Walgreen products, you will get 5000 points which equals $5 off if your choose to redeem your points. Or, you can collect your points for even greater discounts down the road. By the using the Happy and Healthy Magazine, I knew exactly what brands and products were included in the sale.
Here I am using ology Dish Soap at home. I like the scent and it works just like any other dish soap without the harsh ingredients.

Ology has a great line of safer, greener products all at an affordable price! Using your balance rewards you sure saved a bunch!

It sounds like Duane Reade is definitely the pharmacy/drugstore at which to shop. They have everything and those balance reward points are the best!

We don’t have a Duane Reade in our area but I was in New York once and everyone raved about it. The magazine looks great and I love that you can find the products in it, right in the store and at such a great bargain.

Love that last picture of you 🙂
Isn’t it crazy that time alone shopping can be so wonderful when you’re a mom?
I’ll have to look for those products!
Never heard about that brand, but love finding new “clean” brands.
Annie @ Mama Dweeb says
I love the labels on the ology line! I so totally wish there was a Duane Reed by me 🙂
Amy @ Oh So Savvy Mom says
I’ve never seen Ology products before. I also didn’t know that Duane Reade and Wallgreens were the same thing! Learn something new every day.
Walgreens is the closest store to us. I’ll have to check out the Ology stuff next time I stop there.
Samantha @ Lillian McKay Designs says
I saw that Ology in the ad for Walgreens and have been wanting to give it a try! I’ll have to give it a try!
Smart shopping! The Ology line sounds fabulous and picking up extra, while on sale and gaining Balance Rewards bonus points to boot? That sounds like a triple win to me! We always look for natural and eco-friendly products when we shop but I’ve not seen the Ology line yet. We’ll be looking for it at Walgreens with fingers crossed it is available there, too! Thanks so much for sharing your finds 🙂

It is great to be able to spend the time shopping for the real bargains we use and like. I am a grandmother and love to give my son and daughter in law the time to do this when they want. It is a win-win situation for all of us.
