CVS 12/9 - lots of trouble today!

I'm sick again & of course my mind is cloudy with free robitussin so my deals were all screwy (but not all my fault!)

Trans 1:
  • 1- Complete Multipurpose ($8.99)
  • 2- Propel waters (clearanced to $.40 ea!!!) used $1/2 CVS coupon = -$.20!
  • 1- Powerade ($1.59)
  • 3- Pro Max Bars ($5.00)
  • 2 - Sally Hansen nailpolishes (sale price $1.25!!!) used $3/2 CVS coupon =(adjusted down, grr!) = FREE! YMMV though as only one store I've seen so far had this!
  • 4 - Duracell AA 4packs (sale price $3) used two $5/2 CVS coupons & a $1.50/1 MFC = $.50

Total: $15.88 (Not sure how much I really used in ECB because I screwed up and bought another Complete thinking the limit was more than 2 (I returned it and got the money back on a gift card) Literally, I should have just gone home and gone to bed!!! But I didn't....
ECBS received: $8.99 for Complete, $1.59 for Powerade, $5 for Pro Max and will get $5 ecb for Duracell next time around!


Trans 2: (DH's card) yeah, I couldn't resist looking for more Propel & nail polish!!!


  • 3- Propel waters (clearanced to $.40 ea!!!) used $1/2 CVS coupon = $.20!
  • 1- Powerade ($1.59)
  • 1 - EOB body wash (clearanced to $1.50) used $2/1 = -$.50!
  • 1 - Oil of Olay (cleanser? moisturizer? can't remember- clearanced @ $5.00) attempted to use $5/1 coupon, but cashier didn't scan it... but she's my favorite so I will just return the cleanser instead of grumbling! :) = $5.00
  • 2 - Rolaid 3 roll packs ($2.49) forgot to use $1/1 grrr = $4.98
  • 4 - Duracell AA 4packs (sale price $3) used two $5/2 CVS coupons two $.75/1 MFCs = $.50

Total: $11.77 (paid with 11.98 in ecb adjusted down, oop = $0)

Received $1.59 ecb for Powerade, 4 for Rolaid ( will hopefully return Olay for 5 bucks back,) and will get $5 ecb for Duracell next time around!

PS: can I get a collective "I HATE IT" for having to put ecbs in order with coupons from highest to lowest value? It's terrible!!!!!!!!!

3 gave me some sugar:

why do you have to put them in order like that? do you have an ECB patrol at your store? ;)

feel better!

Beth,
I'm not sure why... I want to say it's something with the Duracell $5/2 coupon? It sucks !

I just used the Duracell Q last so I didn't have to worry about it. I hate when their Qs trigger a glitch.

The nail polish & Propel are an awesome find!! I'll be searching for them!
