CVS Superstars!

I'm back in the saddle!!! We'll sorta. =)
I got to CVS once and did 3 transactions. I didn't get to do all the transactions I had planned. I didn't have all the right coupons!
Also, I left my camera at school because I'm using it for a project with the kids.

Here's what I got though...

Transaction #1:
1 pack of Huggies $8.99
1 Pedialax $2.19
Total: $11.18
Used $2/$10 CVS coupon
Used $1.50/1 Huggies coupon
Used $1/1 Pedialax coupon
Total: $7.32
Earned: $2 ECBs

Transaction #2
(Identical to transaction #1)
Used the $2 ECBs earned
OOP: $5.31

Transaction #3:
4 bags of Dove chocolate
1 Alavert
1 pack of Huggies
Total: $26.98
Used $2/$10 CVS coupon
Used $1 Huggies Coupon (from blinkie at CVS)
Used 2 BOGO Dove coupons
Used $4 Alavert coupon
Total: $13.98 + tax
Used $2 ECBs
OOP: $13.11
Earned: $13 ECBs

By the way I had $0 ECBs when I started...
Total Spent OOP: 25.74
Total Earned ECBS: $17

The Pedialax was $6.99 at my store. I had hoped to do a deal with it, but I couldn't see spending $6.99 for $2 ECBs. The liquid at my store was 4 oz, what size were they at your store?

Denise, I'm so glad you're back! I missed reading your blog :) (especially walmart deals!)

DealDad said...

Thanks for all your help! CVS is certainly an adventure - the last time I went, the clerk saw me talking to another couponing friend and asked, "Do all the coupon people know each other???"

The coupon I printed for Pedialax says for oral product only. Wouldnt work on the $2.19 product

I did okay at CVS this week considering we really needed a few high dollar items and I still got outta there for under $4.00 OOP.

Used $4/$20 CVS (for signing up for Extra care card)

Thanks for all the great info you and your CVS Superstars share here. It's really been helpful to me since I'm a newbie at CVS shopping.

WOW Amazing! Not sure how I got to your blog. I go to CVS all the time and I havent thought of being so creative. I am so inspired I will be checking back for more tips.

I didn't use the $2/10 coupons, but I'm satisfied with my transactions anyhow. I did two transactions HERE and HERE. Blogger won't let me sign in to my blog, so I have started a new one HERE.

This was my best CVS week, maybe ever, certainly in many months. By the way, I read that the "oral only" Pedialax coupon DID work for the enemas, but I wasn't able to use mine because my printer did a lousy job on the bar code :-(
