I just wanted to let my fellow swappers know about a good deal at Walgreen's this week.  I am not sure if Walgreen's is available in everyone's area or not  - However, they have the brown Scotch bubble wrap mailing envelopes up to 8 1/2 x 11 size for 3/$1.00 this week with a coupon out of their weekly flyer.  The flyer is usually always available near the front entrance of the store.  Their is a limit of 6.  I purchased 6 today and it was a savings of $7.00.  I plan to go back tomorrow and purchase 6 more if they still have them.   While I have been able to purchase the smaller mailer at the dollar type stores for fairly reasonable this is a pretty good deal for the larger envelopes.  Hope this will at least benefit a few of you anyway. Happy Swapping!!!

I buy mine in bulk and get them for about 17 cents each in size 0, but this is still good to know.  Thanks!

I could use some more too so hopefully they stil have some when I get a chance to get by there. Bernerd how do you buy them bulk? That would seem the way to go.

Mary M- Thanks for the tip! :-).  I wasn't too sure if I had a Walgreen's nearby (I moved recently and the only one I knew about was a few towns over, about a 20 minute drive).  Turns out when I went to the grocery store, there's one right in that complex!  Unfortunately, they were low on their enveolope supplies, but I was able to pick up 6 in varying sizes!  Thanks again! :-)

I went by two Walgreens yesterday and picked up a total of 12 envelopes.  Will be back out tomorrow so will probably pick up another 12. 

Thanks for the heads up.  BTW - if you don't have the Sunday paper you can download the coupon online at Walgreens.

Today I didn't even need the coupon and they didn't mention the limit of 6.  I got another 18 today - that was all one store had in stock and the other store was completely out.   These should last me a little while.

Oh hey, I just used my last bubble mailer.  Appears my next errand run will include Walgreens...unless Cozi beat me to it!

Our Sam's Club in Ohio sells the box of 25 bubble mailers for a little over $6. That's the big ones - 8 1/2 x 11.

Same price in the Orlando area -- about $6.00 for the big ones, and even less for the 6 x 9 envelopes.  The large ones are perfect for 2 paperbacks or 1 hardback, and the small ones are just right for one paperback.
