CVS ~ $59.53 in Product for only $11.00 Out of Pocket!



I spent $11.00 out of pocket for what is pictured plus my $21.00 in ECB from the last trip. I received $19.00 in ECB for the next trip! I did it all in one transaction and think I did pretty well, considering that the GoodNites cost almost $10.00 at Walmart, if I were to go in there to just pick some up. The Loreal makeup I use cost $10+ at Walmart so If I weren't a savvy shopper like I am now, I would have paid way over $40 for just those four things that I (and family) use all the time.  Here's how I did it:

Huggies - Spend $30, get $10 ECB Deal:
(3) Kleenex @ 3 for $4.00
Less $1.50 CVS Red Machine Coupon for Kleenex
(3) GoodNites at $8.99 = $26.97
Less (3) $2.00 off Manufacturer coupons ($6.00)
Less $5.00/$25.00 CVS coupon for Huggies products
= $30.97 needed to earn the $10.00 Extra Bucks but after coupons, this will cost only $19.47 or $9.47 after ECB is factored in

Crest - Spend $10, get $5 ECB Deal:
(1) Crest @ $5.89
(1) Crest @ $4.19
= $10.08 needed to earn the $5.00 Extra Bucks
Less $2/$10 Oral Care Coupon from the Red Machine
Less (2) $0.50 Crest Manufacturer coupons
= $7.08, Received $5.00 Extra Care Bucks. After Extra Care Bucks are factored in, this will cost only $2.08
*I also got 20% off this because the Crest were not on sale.

Loreal - Spend $12, get $4.00 ECB Deal:
(1) Loreal Powder Foundation @ $15.29
= $15.29, which gives me the $4.00 ECB
Less $4.00/$12.00 Makeup Purchase CVS coupon from the red machine
Less $2.00 Loreal Manufacturer coupon
= $9.29, Received $4.00 Extra Care Bucks. After Extra Care Bucks are factored in, this will cost $5.29
*I also got 20% off this because the Loreal was not on sale.

Cotton Balls & Nail Polish Deal:
(2) Cotton Balls @ $1.00 Each
(1) Travel Size Nail Polish Remover @ $1.19
= $3.19
Less (2) $1.00 off Cotton or Nail Polish Remover CVS coupons (1 was expired and I didn't bother with not buying it..)
= $1.19
*I got 20% off the nail polish remover because it was not on sale.

Breakdown:
Total Retail: $59.53
Less Coupons: ($23.50)
Less 20% off: ($4.78)
= $31.25
Less Extra Bucks from last trip: ($21.00)
= $11.00 Out of Pocket, Recieved $19.00 in Extra Bucks for the next trip!
