Prefer CVS to Walgreens...past week, anyway. Lured by Kashi Cereal, Aussie, Oral-B.
First CVS Coupon Trip With Stacking Scenarios
It Is Like CVS Paid Me To Shop!
$37.45 in Products Final Cost to Me -0- Net Overage ECB’s = $1.68
So I finally made it to CVS yesterday with my coupons and detailed list in hand. I have avoided shopping at CVS for deals (with or without coupons). The ExtraCare Bucks really intimidated me, plus I’ve always had problems finding what I need in CVS (the stores seem disorganized and understaffed in my area). I simply couldn’t resist grabbing a Kashi Cereal for $3 and using my $2/1 Recyclebank.com coupon.
Here’s How It Went:
Started with -0- ECB. Received a bunch of ECBs after’ the first transaction for store and for specific products, since it had been a while since I used the card.
I realize now that I didn’t do the transactions to maximize my savings. The first trans. should have been for the toothbrush alone.
Coupons & ECB Used
$2 ECB, product specific (Aussie or Pantene) Paid Out of Pocket: -0- (plus tax) Saved $10.41
Ended Up With $7 ECB + another $ 2.50 ECB on Clairol–
That means I am $1.68 ahead (not counting the Clairol ECB) & my net payment is OVERAGE of $1.68 because of the $7 in ECB vs. the -0- I had when started today.
