I Made It To CVS This Week!

I finally made it to CVS in time for the Sunday/Monday deal. I'm just a slow blogger! Here's what I got:

Transaction #1

2 Bags Jelly Beans 1.00
CVS Alcohol $.50
Glade Sense & Spray $5.99
PAAS Easter Egg kit $1.99
Mentos gum $1.69 (needed filler, as to not waste ECB)


$1.00 Mentos gum coupon
$4.00 Glade coupon from Bzz Agent
$6.00 in ECB

Total OOP $.17 and I got back $2.99.

Transaction #2

CVS Vitamin D $2.99

minus $2.99 in ECB from transaction #1

Total OOP = ZERO and I got back $2.99 in ECB. Yay free!

Overall, I lost $3.01 in ECB and my total "expense" was $3.18. At least my OOP was low and I got more Easter supplies. Total saved $19.46.

The good news is that today, April 1st, your winter spending Extra Care Bucks will print. Plus, a new monthly catalog starts today. Sounds like another trip is in store for me. If your CVS has a "magic coupon machine" a.k.a. price checking machine, you can scan your card for the ECB without even having to shop! :)
