I had a great week at CVS - everything I wanted was at one store (except tuna - I was hoping to get more and all they had was 2). It was so fast. I did 2 transactions back to back and then loaded it in my car and went back in for two more transactions! It had to be the fastest trip to CVS ever because I didn't have to rework my transactions I had already clipped together and mapped out - GOTTA LOVE THAT!

Here's what I scored at CVS this week:

I did 4 transactions:

2 Secret deoderants
1 double pack of Oral B Tootbrushes
Total OOP:$0.77 (on a gift card)
Total ECBs Spent: $9.38

Total ECBs Earned: $7.99

Chex Mix Turtle
2 Dawn Dish Soaps
Listerine Smart Rinse
3 CVS Band Aids
2 Cans of Tuna
2 Bags of Bliss Chocolates
Total OOP: $0.33 (on a gift card)
Total ECBs Spent: $11.58

Total ECBs Earned: $10.46

Swiffer Duster Kit
Swiffer Floor Refills
Listerine Smart Rinse
Total OOP: $1.80 (on a Gift Card)
Total ECBs Spent: $7.98

Total ECBs Earned: $8.49

1 Listerine Smart Rinse
1 Oral B Double Pack Toothbrushes
1 CVS Band Aids
1 Gallon Milk
Total OOP: $2.34 (on a gift card)
Total ECBs Spent: $12.48

Total ECBs Earned: $12.47

Week Totals:
Total Spent OOP (on a gift card): $5.24
ECBs Spent: $41.42

ECBs Earned: $39.41

Pretty good! I am pleased. I only lost about 2 ECBs and spent NOTHIN! Plus I got lots of stuff we can USE and/or GIVE to those who need it AND MILK!! Total spent on the gift card was really close to the price I would have spent if I just walked in and bought the milk! WHOPPPEEEE!!!

AWESOME!!!! That really is a good trip! I love getting milk at CVS now - that's where I usually go too!

Melissa Tresler said...

You had a sweet trip! Isn't it nice when your plan actually works out? :)

Greg said...

Love your blog and get great info from you. Here's a CVS question: on the receipt it says you earn 2% to shop there. Can you explain that? Thanks. Melanie

Now that I've changed cities, I have no CVS! :( Just when I was getting good!

Angela said...

I got
2 9-packs of Charmin
2 8-packs of Bounty
3 Huggies Bath Wash
2 CVS Bandaids
3 Pantene Shampoo/Conditioners
2 Dawn Dish Soaps
1 Listerine Smart Rinse

I spent $10.52 OOP, in three transactions and wound up with $6.98 in ECB. Not as good as you, but I just started. I was so nervous when I was checking out, I was convinced they were going to tell me that I couldn't do it - couldn't get all that stuff for that little bit. But I did. My husband was impressed.

Hi, Denise! I am new to blogging, but would love to try the CVS thing! I put your button on my blog. Come by and visit me sometime!

Marianne Thomas said...

Denise, LOL! You and Andrea and I all found ways to get milk for free this week!

Great job this week!

Amanda said...

i know you don't post your cvs preview/scenarios until tomorrow...but i have to mention one i'm excited about based on the coupons in this weeks insert (i get them in our "early edition" paper). photo books are b1g1...then there is a $3 off photo book coupon in the insert! that means you could get two 6x8 photo books for around $6 total! i will be buying some extra papers so i can have 4 coupons...thus making 4 books for around $12...and saving them to be christmas gifts for family! HOORAY!

Great deals this week. I love your blog. It is so helpful.

Alyssa said...

Dang, I wish I had gotten free milk too! Oh well, I scored LOTS of Toilet Paper.

Great job!
