I made another small profit at CVS this week. This is my second week in a row with a profit and my third in a row with under $3 spent out of pocket.
Bic Soleil Razor $7.99
Revlon Mineral Make-Up $9.99
Glide Floss $3.99
CVS Batteries $3.79
Wyler's Light packets $.27
$5/$25 CVS printable CVS coupon
$3 off Bic Soleil newspaper coupon
$1.00 Revlon newspaper coupon
$3.79 off CVS batteries (free item coupon from CVS, August promo)
$9.99 in ECB from last week's CVS trip
Total cash OOP $2.44. I got back $12.99 in ECB and saved 30.49. I made an Extra Care Buck (ECB) profit of $3.00 and with the $2.44 in cash I spent, I had an overall "profit" of $.56. Woot!
The clearance Wyler's Light packets made the perfect filler at 9 cents a piece!! I had planned on getting the Sharpie highlighters (free with a coupon) but they were out and I was a $.24 shy of $25. Remember the $25 total needed does not include tax, so it's best to have a plan "B" or "C" in mind if you're trying to use a $5/$25 coupon. Sometimes (usually) something is out of stock.
Also.....I wanted to mention the Revlon make-up. I was lucky that they were hidden in my store and I found my shade. If not, I would have still bought some and sold it on eBay. It runs, $14.99 regular price and was on sale for $9.99. I actually "made" $1 on it since I used a coupon and it was free with ECB. It's a super tiny bottle, and it might cost about $1.50 to ship. So, if I were to sell it, I would maybe sell it for $9.99 with free shipping. Just an idea! :)
