Diapers, Paper Towels and Soap, oh my! (CVS 4/7)

Trans 1 (Monday):
  • 2 - Easter Baskets ($1.99 ea) = $3.98
  • 2 - Stayfree (clearanced @ $1.60 ea) used $2/2 and $2/1 CRT = -$.80
  • 1 - Skintimate @ $3.49 = $3.49
  • 1 - Peanut Butter Egg = $.50
  • 1 - Cadbury Egg = $.50
Total: $7.67 (paid with 7 ecbs and $.67 on a gift card)
ECBs: $3.98 for baskets, $4 for Stayfree (2 each), $3.49 for Skintimate

And then I had a $15/$75 CRT that I was determined to use! (Was too rushed on Monday)

Trans 2 (Tuesday):
  • 3 - Packages of Huggies ($10.00 ea) used three $5/1 MFCs = $15.00
  • 1 - 8 Pack of Bounty ($5.99) used $1/1 = $4.99
  • 2 - Stayfree (@ $2.39 ea) used $2/2 = $2.78
  • 1 - Kotex Liner (@ $1.49) used $2/1 CRT & $.75/1 = -$1.26
  • 1 - Tums @ $5.29 (was supposed to be $2.65... grr) used $2/1 CRT = $3.29
  • 1 - Diet Dr. Pepper that exploded in the bag ($1.59) used FREE coupon = FREE ($.05 )
  • 4 - Soft Soap Essentials ($3.99 ea) used four $2/1 MFC = $7.96
  • 1 - Accucheck Glucose Monitor = $9.99
  • 5 - Wrigley's Gums ($1.19 ea) used five free item coupons = FREE
Total: $28.31 (after $15 off) paid with $28 in ECBs and $.31 oop
Received: $10 ECBs for Huggies/baby, $4 for Stayfree, $9.99 for Accucheck, $8 for Soft Soap

I'll return the Tums... isn't it always the one time you don't price check?!?

What do you think, how'd I do? :)

8 gave me some sugar:

Great job with the $15/75.. I am so low on ECB, I don't know if I will attempt it. I love reading about the ideas though!

Debra said...

Chicagolandia said...

Amazing deals!!

Amy said...

I would love to be smart enough to do these deals! I am not very good at the ECB thing. Maybe I need to take a class from you LOL!

Sue said...

Hey, great job!! And btw, no, there were no probs with the Red Sox coupons...except for the lady behind me getting impatient! :o)

Heather said...

My CVS will only return up to the amount that you paid in cash or credit for a refund not in EB. Did your CVS let you return the tums or did you have to exchange them for something else?

Jamie said...

Way to go! I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to use my $15/$75 Crt!

KC, Debra, Chicagolandia, Sue, Jamie: THANK YOU! :)

Amy: You are smart enough! Anyone can do it as long as they have a coupons, and a calculator! :) Let me know if you need help!

Heather: Typically, they will give me store credit on a gift card. YMMV though. If you are worried, you can always return it without a receipt.
