CVS ~ $13.11 Out of Pocket, Saved $34.33


I broke my CVS trip down into 3 transactions in order to maximize my savings by rolling my ECB deals as follows:

Transaction #1:  

  • 1 VO5 Shampoo @ $0.82, Less $1.00 CVS Red Machine Coupon, good for $1.00 off any shampoo or conditioner = $0.18 MM
  • 2 Colgate 360 Toothbrushes @ $2.99 each, Less $2.00 Red Machine Coupon, good for $2.00 off any 2 Toothbrushes = $3.98
  • 1 Dark Chocolate Raspberry Candy @ $0.67 
  • 2 Gold Bond Lotion @ $0.99 each, Less (2) $1.00 off any Gold Bond Lotion MFG Coupons = FREE
  • 2 Planter's Peanuts @ $0.99 each, less (2) $1.00/any Planter's peanuts coupons = FREE
Total Out of Pocket = $4.82
Received $4.00 ECB for the Colgate Toothbrush Purchase
Received $0.67 ECB for the Dark Chocolate Candy Purchase

Transaction #2:

  • 2 Sparkle 8 Count Paper Towels @2/$10 or $5.00 each, less (2) $1.00/printable coupons = $8.00

Transaction #3: (P.S. I'm not happy with the price I paid for this deal so I don't recommend you doing it. Walmart's price is cheaper.)
