After finding no school supplies last week during the Sunday/Monday/Tuesday sale at CVS, I wasn't even going to stop in this week. But, I changed my mind (after my sister-in-law had a great trip). I'm so glad I did!!!
I knew the trip was going to be good when I walked in, scanned the magic coupon machine and out spit a $1.50 coupon for the Mennen Speed Stick Pro that's on sale this week ($2.99 with $2 ECB back).
2 packs of paper $4.00
2 packs of pens $1.98
2 "Handy Dandy" notebooks $1.98
Speed Stick Pro $2.99
Snickers Bar (so I didn't lose $.50 in ECB!!)
$1.50 CVS/Speed Stick coupon from "Magic Price Check Machine"
$10.00 in ECB from my CVS trip last week
Total cash OOP $.34, got back $9.96 in ECB and saved $15.88.
I lost $.04 in ECB and spent $.34 in cash so I "spent" $.38 overall. I could have not gotten the Snicker's and paid zero cash OOP, but would have lost $.50 in ECB when I paid. We can't have that happen! I'd rather enjoy some chocolate.
Have a great afternoon!! :)
