CVS Run, 6/9

Had  a GREAT CVS run today.  I had some ECB’s expiring today so I had to get over there, especially w/ all the great deals they have this week.  Here’s what I got:

I had multiple transactions planned, but the Velp store was out of several items on my list.  I ended up w/ one transaction, but it was FAR better than I anticipated:

  • 2 Skinny Cow ice cream cups, $1 each – $1 IP’s = FREE
  • Gillette Fusion ProGlide, $9.97 – $4 MC = $5.97, earned $5 ECB’s
  • Always Ultra, $2.97 – FREE MC from Being Girl sample pack = FREE
  • 2 Tampax Pearl, $2.97 each – $2 MC’s = $0.97 each
  • Dawn Hand Renewal, $0.97 – $1 MC = FREE plus overage
  • – $5 off $15 that printed at register (adjusted to $4.38)
  • – $3.50 ECB’s

Total = $0.96, just the tax!  Plus I earned $5 ECB’s from the razor, so that is a $4.04 profit.  I heart CVS!

5/10 CVS Run

Want to know how I got everything you see here for just $10.70 plus tax?

Transaction #1:

  • 2 Right Guard Total Defense, 2.99 each – (2) 1.00 IP’s = 2/3.98, earned $4 ECB’s
  • U by Kotex, 4.99 – $1 MC – $1 CVS printable = $2.99, earned $4.99 ECB’s
  • – $5 ECB’s
  • Total = $1.97 plus tax, $8.99 ECB’s earned (7.02 profit)
  • Would have saved another dollar if I hadn’t waited too long to get the $3off2 coupon for Right Guard.  No longer available when I tried to print it.

Transaction #2:

  • Zyrtec 25 ct. liquid gels, $18.99 – $4 IP – $2 CVS printable = $12.99, earned $7 ECB’s
  • -$8.99 ECB’s from transaction #1
  • Total = $4.00 plus tax, earned $7 ECB’s ($3 profit)

Transaction #3:

  • Carefree liners, $1 – $1 MC = FREE
  • Crest Pro-Health, $3.50 – 0.75 MC = $2.75, earned $3.50 ECB’s
  • Purex BOGO, $8.99 – $2 MC = 2/$6.99
  • Skin Effects cleanser, $6.99 – $5 CVS coupon = $1.99
  • – $7 ECB’s
  • Total = $4.73 plus tax, earned $3.50 ECB’s
  • Could have saved $2 more if I’d had a second copy of the Purex coupon

Had I paid CVS’s full retail price for these items, my total would have been $67.71, so w/ sales, coupons and ECB’s I saved over 84%.  Man, I love when the deals are good at CVS!!

CVS Run, 2/25

I had two quick transactions planned for CVS today.  I’m almost out of Zyrtec again and recently got a great coupon for $6.50 off in the mail.  It’s on sale this week and I saw a couple other good deals I planned to get with it.  What sweetened the deal even further was when I stopped at the “magic coupon machine” and it printed me a $5 off $15 purchase coupon.  Awesome!  Here’s how it turned out…

Transaction #1:

  • Zyrtec, $18.99 on sale – $6.50 MC = $12.49
  • Almay Intense I-Color mascara w/ bonus free eyeliner, $5.99 on sale – $2 MC = $3.99, earned $2 ECB’s
  • Total = $16.48 – $5 off $15 – $4 ECB’s = $7.48 plus tax, earned $2 ECB’s, saved $23.50 (76%)

Transaction #2:

  • Colgate Kids’ 2-in-1, $2.99 on sale – $0.75 MC = $2.24 – $2 ECB’s = $0.24 plus tax, earned $2 ECB’s, saved $3.05 (93%)
