Sharing great deals to help you save

$20 to spend at CVS

So here’s a detailed version of my successful CVS trip for my mom:

Transaction #1

2 Colgate Max toothpastes                                     $5.54

2 – $0.75 off 1 coupons                                            $1.50

Total OOP  (out of pocket)                                       $4.48 (with tax)   + earned $5.54 ECB ($2.77 ea from each of the items)

So she basically made $1.50 (the amount of the coupons) off this purchase because the ECB made the items FREE!! Now that’s cool!

Transaction #2

1 Bounty 8pk                                                                   $7.99

1 coupon from P&G brandsaver booklet             $1.00

ECB earned from transaction #1                             $5.54

Total OOP  (out of pocket)                                          $2.09 (with tax)   + earned $2 ECB

Transaction #3

1 Charmin 12pk                                                              $4.99

1 coupon from P&G brandsaver booklet             $1.00

ECB earned from transaction #2                             $2.00

Total OOP  (out of pocket)                                          $2.39 (with tax)   + earned $1 ECB

Transaction #4

2 Dawn Plus                                                                    $1.98

2 coupons from P&G inserts 5/1/11                     $1.00  (2 – $0.50 coupons)

ECB earned from transaction #1                             $0.98 (it was $1.00 but since the transaction subtotal was only $0.98 in order to use                                                                                                                   the ECB I had to forfeit $0.02 but it was still worth it!!)

Total OOP  (out of pocket)                                          $0.16 ( I guess they still had to tax though my subtotal was $0.00)

Total OOP $9.12

All of that for less than $10!!! I hope that this helps you be able to save money on needed items. If you need to replicate the deal, go ahead…but know you have until Saturday for these savings. If you don’t have the same coupons, there were coupons that were for a little less in the Sunday’s paper. Happy saving!
