CVS - braving the blizzard!

I was downright giddy to be at CVS at 11:30 on Saturday night...IN THE MIDDLE OF A SNOW STORM. Gotta love that I'm close enough to CVS that I could walk there!

I was literally skipping through the aisles... thank you Perkins Peanut Butter Pie! (And thank you to my MIL & FIL!) ;)

Trans 1:
  • 5- Listerines (@ $2.99 ea) = $14.95 (with $14.95 ECBs back)
  • 1 - Zantac (@ $4.99) used $1/1 MFC = $3.99 (with $4.99 ECBs backs)
  • 1 - EAS advantage protein drink 4 pack ($7.49) (with $7.49 ECBs backs)
  • 1 - EAS advantage protein bar ($1.69) (with $1.69 ECBs backs)
  • 1 - Right Guard ($6.00) (With $6.00 ECBs backs)
  • 2 - Sally Hansen Nail Polishes (rang up B1G1 50% off @ $5.99 and $2.99 and NO ECBS)= $8.98
  • 1 - Excedrin ($3.99) used $1/1 CRT & $2/1 MFC = $.99 (With $3.99 ECBs backs)
  • 1 - Sleepinal ($8.49) (With $8.49 ECBs backs)
  • 3 - Thermacare heat wraps ($2.49 ea) = $7.47 (With $7.47 ECBs backs)
  • 2 - Loreal Metallics ($6.99 ea) used two $1/1 MFCs = $11.98 (With $13.98 ECBs back)
  • 1 - Zip Fizz ($5.99) (With $5.99 ECBs backs)
  • 1 - Slim Quick ($4.99) (With $4.99 ECBs backs)
  • 1 - Alteril Sleep Aid ($9.99) (With $9.99 ECBs backs)
  • 1 - Halls Naturals ($2.59) used $.35/1 MFC = $2.24 (With $2.59 ECBs backs)
  • 2 - CVS keychain Chapsticks ($.99 ea) - fillers, I was -$1.67!!!
I used a $3/$15 (Almost had a meltdown when it screwed my transaction up... cashier thankfully scanned my CVS card again) and $87.93 in ECBs.
OOP = $.26 on a gift card!!!!
Received $90.26 in ECBs and will hopefully get another $11.98 for my Sally Hansen! :) = $102.24 ECBs!

I kid you not, the cashier actually asked me if she could "count my ECBs" - so the other cashier got out her phone and the two of them went through my receipt!!! Hahahahaha. I wish I could have taken a picture! The fun we have at 12:30 A.M on a Saturday night/Sunday morning!

Trans 2: (The next morning)
  • 5- Listerines (@ $2.99 ea) = $14.95 (with $14.95 ECBs back)
  • 1 - EAS advantage protein drink 4 pack ($7.49) (with $7.49 ECBs backs)
  • 1 - EAS advantage protein bar ($1.69) (with $1.69 ECBs backs)
  • 1 - Right Guard ($6.00) used $2/1 from Aerosol = $4.00 (With $6.00 ECBs backs)
  • 2 - Loreal Metallics ($6.99 ea) used two $1/1 MFCs = $11.98 (With $13.98 ECBs back)
My total got a little messed up on this one... I originally bought the orange Listerines (which didn't count for the deal and were not on sale) - I ended up with $42.11 in ECBs!

This is how happy we were:
My fabulous SIL Sam models her ECBs! :)

5 gave me some sugar:

I bought one of the orange listerines too. That's in my "to be returned" pile.

&& I'm super jealous you found the thermacare wraps!!

Isn't it way better to get cashiers that are excited with you?! I hate it when they are grumpy and kill the "Deal High."

I also enjoyed the ECB scarf. Too funny!

Thank you for your blog. I really enjoy it.

That's hilarious. I haven't been giddy about CVS in awhile. I got a $25 gift card for get a new Rx there last week. I might just have to see if any stores have anything left in stock.
