CVS Deals

Been reading this blog called Money Saving Mom…this is a woman who feeds her family on $40/week and talks about deals and how to get them. One of her big things is using CVS “extra care bucks” or “ECB”s. These are advertised specials where you get coupons that print after your sale which can be used like money on your next CVS visit.

So, this is my first week excursion using some of her ideas…

1). Shopping Trip #1

Bought 3 Colgate Toothpastes @ $2.99 ea = 8.97
Bought 2 Extra clothes deterg @ $1.99 ea = 3.98
Bought 2 boxes Smart Start Cereal @ 2 for $5.00 = 5.00
Bought 3 rolls of CVS papertowels @ B2G1 for $.99ea = 1.98

Total Price before taxes…$19.93

Used the following coupons

1. $3/15 CVS purchase from Washington Post
2. $3 off 2 boxes Smart Start Cereal
3. 2- $1.50 off Colgate Toothpastes
4. 1- $1.00 off Cogate Toothpastes

Total Coupons…$ 10.00

Total 9.93 + 0.72 Taxes: Paid $10.65 (got $6.00 [$2 for each colgate toothpaste]ECB with receipt)

Shopping Trip #2

Bought 2 Aquafresh toothpaste @ $2.99 ea = $5.98 ($2.99 ECB back per Toothpaste)
Bought 3 Extra Laundry @ $1.99 ea = $5.97
Bought 2 Colgate toothpastes @ 2.99 ea = $5.98 ($2.00 ECB back per Toothpaste)

total spent = $17.93

Coupons:
$3 off $15
2 – coupons for $1.00 off colgate max fresh =$2.00

total before taxes = $12. 93 + 0.81 = 13.84 (Plus $9.98 ECB)

Shopping Trip #3

Planning on buying 3 jumbo bags of CVS Supreme diapers @ 8.99 ea (B2G1) = 17.98 + taxes

Pay with $ 6 ECB’s from 1st trip + $9.98 ECB’s from second trip + $3/$15 coupon = $18.98

So, total of $56.84 of supplies for $24.49 (and I miscalculated and bought 1 too many laundry detergents thinking I wasn’t going to be getting to $15 dollars…so really the total should be $22.48…but I can always use Laundry detergent and it was a good price! – now I won’t have to buy any for quite a while!!!)

So, I essentially got 7 tubes of toothpaste and 2 bags of diapers for free!

I will definitely be looking for good deals like this in the future!
