My CVS Trip On July 15th

This week I had $5 in Extra Care Bucks burning a hole in my pocket as well as the $10 in ECB I made from the CVS panel I'm on. I decided to do the Olay deal (spend $20, get $10 ECB), because I'm also going to do the $20 Olay Rebate from I noticed the rebate while clipping my coupons. :)

My sister-in-law and I hit a CVS on Sunday to find NO school supplies that were free (with ECB), so I gave up there on those. I'm not that desperate! Here's what I did find:

Transaction #1

Night of Olay $6.99
Olay Complete Lotion $6.99
Olay Total Effects Cleanser $7.99
Gain Detergent $5.99


$1.00 off Gain coupon from P&G book (no longer available)
(3) $1.00 Olay cleanser or lotion P&G newspaper coupons
$5.00 ECB from 2 week ago
$10.00 ECB earned from panel

Total cash OOP = 9.70 and I got back $12.00 in ECB ($2.00 Gain and $10 Olay)

Transaction #2

Electrasol Power Tabs $3.99
Poweraide $1.25
2 CVS nuts $1.98
Gummy Worms $.99


$2.00/2 CVS nuts coupon (from magic machine when I walked in)
Free Poweraide coupon from My Coke Rewards (she took off $1.69 instead of the $1.25 sale price paid)
$2.50 Electrasol coupon from last Sunday's paper
$2.00 in ECB (price adjusted to $1.90) from transaction #1

Total cash OOP = $.13

Overall, I spent $9.83 cash out of pocket (OOP) and saved $24.93. I'm counting the $10 ECB from the panel as "income" as far as my tracking. I also still have $10 in Extra Care Bucks from the Olay deal for next week.

More on the Olay rebate soon....
