Going CVS crazy

July 5th, 2008 at 02:53 pm

I went yesterday and again today to 2 different stores.

Yesterday I didn't do as well, but here is what I got:

Revlon brush $5
Revlon hairclip (my DD has been begging me for this pretty butterfly clip) $6
2 Coppertone Sport sticks $10.60
2 bags Lifesavers BOGOF so $2.19
1 CVS facecloths $3
$2 coupon
$2.19 BOGOF Lifesavers coupon
$3.49 ECB
Paid: $20.83 oop and received $15 ECB

Today I bought:

2 Softsoap bodywash - BOGOF so $4.49
2 Coppertone Waterbabies sticks $9.98
$1 softsoap coupon
$8.49 ECB
PAID: $5.19 oop and rec'd $10 ECB

So, these 2 transactions kinda even each other out, since I spent $26 oop and got back $25 ECB.

I've gotta get better at finding coupons to go with the ECB deals, so that my oop is lower. I tend to get very confused when I walk in the store and distracted from what my "plan" should be.

I did find out that the store that is all the way across town has the coupons from the "Reinventing Beauty" magazine hanging for customers to take which is super nice since I ended up buying this mag yesterday just to use one coupon. Now I will know to get the coupons from the other store.

    WTG! You did great! Don't forget to get the monthly book for more ECB offers.

    I was eyeing that today! Wink I have been looking for coupons to use with some of those monthly deals like the Sure deodorant, and the ACT mouthwash. Of course, I never seem to have the right coupon at the right time. I am really trying to keep these ECBs rolling! Smile

    Sometimes I can find IP's that go with the sales. Does youe store accept them?

  4. MariRDH Says:

    Yes, they do which is so great! I actually used a printed coupon for the BOGOF Softsoap bodywash deal I mentioned in this post.

    My Rite-Aid does not take the printables, but I don't shop there much anymore now that I have been CVSing.
