It feels so good to be back!
I can’t believe it has been three weeks since I stepped foot in a CVS (no wonder my extra care bucks were about to expire!) Last week I took a week off of shopping all together.
No grocery store.
We didn’t even eat out. In fact, I didn’t spend a single penny…and it was great! The week before last, I cheated on CVS with Walgreens. So yesterday was sort of a homecoming, returning to my favorite store…and what a great week it was! Make sure you scan your extra care card at “the magic coupon machine” when you first walk in the store. I had three freebies print out for me! One coupon for a FREE box of fabric CVS bandaids (20 count), one for FREE carefree panty liners (20 count) and one for a FREE Hershey’s Carmelo candy bar (my store was out of these).
I started out with only 3 Extra Care bucks and ended up walking away with $25 worth of items for only $1.70!! woot woot AND I have 1 extra care buck remaining which I wanted to use to buy trident gum (they are on sale for $.99 each) and there was a $2.00 off three packs of gum coupon in the Sunday paper last week…so this would make 3 packs for only $.99 but since the extra care amount is for $1.00 that would make my balance negative and as you know CVS does not allow underage, so I decided to hold on to the coupon and extra care buck for next week.
Here is how I made out:
G Fit Recovery drinks (this week sale…spend $5 on Gfit series get 5 Extra care bucks back)
- -Bought (2) at $2.50 (the GFit 1 and 2 are only $1 each), get 5 ECB back = FREE
CVS flexible band aid,20ct
- -Bought one on sale for $4.19 (coupon good for up to $4.29 so made $.10 on these)=FREE
Carefree panty liners
- -Bought one for $1.67 (coupon good for up to $1.87 so I made $.20 on these!)=FREE
- (1) CVS coupon took $4.29 off
- (1) Carefree coupon took $1.87 off
- (3) Extra care bucks from last trip
AND it was no tax weekend in Mass…so my grand total was $1.70 and I got 5 Extra Care bucks back!
Healthy Choice Meals (on sale for 2/$4 normally $7.95 each)
- -Bought (2) get 1 Extra care buck back
Pop Corn (I needed something to bring my total to $5 and I was kinda craving it…don’t judge 😉
- -Bought (1) for $1.00
(5) extra care bucks from first transaction = $0.00 and got 1 Extra care buck back!
So all in all I spent $1.70 out of pocket for $25 worth of stuff AND I have one Extra care buck back…..
….this is why I love CVS! 🙂
