So more than a month has passed since the last BIG HOLIDAY SALE. I can't remember if it was Black Friday or Christmas. There was an very nice Conair ionic blow dryer (29.99) special for 9.99 and get 5 ECBs. I decided to take a Rain Check by the time I got to the third CVS and couldn't find one.
Here are the Weird and Wonderful Parts:
Long story made short, I accepted their kind offer to buy a better model (39.99) for the same 9.99 and get 5 ECBs.
Used an expired CVS $10 ECB. It was a week expired and I asked politely before I shopped if they would still accept it, and the Manager said "no problem".
Got the $5 ECBs and then two more for $1 ECB printed. The cashier and I read them but couldn't figure out what they were for. Doesn't really matter to me. :-)
Used the $5 ECB to buy 3 Hallmark Cards (.99 ea), 2 Cadbury Eggs, 1 Chocolate Marshmallow Heart. I didn't have any coupons at all with me, so I restrained myself. Paid .64
Got $3 ECB
- Started with $10 ECB
- Paid 0.64
- Kept $5 ECBs
- Gained a 39.99 ionic blow dryer, 3 nice Hallmark greeting cards, and 3 yummy chocolate treats.
