CVS Run #1 With A Small Profit

With the $3/15 expiring yesterday and no real plans, I headed to CVS. I was in desperate need of razor blades!! As usual, my trip didn't go as planned.

2 Bic Soleil Refils $ 11.98
2 M&M's $1.00
Vitamin Water $1.59


$3/$15 CVS coupon (expired yesterday)
(2) $2.00 printable Bic Soleil coupons
$5.00 in ECB

Total OOP $2.78 and I got back $10 in ECB. $8.00 for the razor blades and $2.00 for my summer spending. Since I got back $10 in ECB and used $5, that's a $5 ECB profit (really $3 if you don't count the summer spending). Minus the cash I spent, total profit was $2.22 (or just $.22).

I should have been charged $2.29 for the Vitamin Water and gotten $2.29 in ECB back for it. So, in this case I shouldn't have been able to use the $3/$15 coupon (my total was too low). But since I still have a profit, the manager accepted my coupon and over $2 for Vitamin Water is crazy anyway, I'll let it go. I guess I can try the water again later this week and ask if the deal is working first. :)
