Grocery Geek Presents: A CVS Week

Posted By Jessica Fisher On April 18, 2009 @ 2:08 pm In Grocery Geek | No Comments

Since I decided to avoid the grocery store [3] for the remainder of the month, this week I made a concerted effort “to CVS.” I haven’t done much of it since we have such a nice stockpile. However, since there were some freebies and I wasn’t going to do any other shopping, I figured now was an opportune time.

If you read my CVS primer for this past week [4], you’ll know that there were some great deals on body wash and dental products. So I included those in my purchases along with other items that I saw were good deals. I was pleasantly surprised when I found some great coupons to go with everything I bought.

I went in with $10 in ECBs and a few coupons and came out with $13.97 in ECBs and all this!

Here’s what I did:

Transaction #1
1 Softsoap body wash $4.99
3 Pantene shampoos and conditioners @ 3.50 each
3 Pantene styling products @$3.50 each

Total 25.99
Minus 4/20 coupon that I rec’d via email
Minus 3 “FREE Pantene styler when you buy shampoo or conditioner” coupons (-$10.50)
Minus $1 Softsoap coupon
Total $10.49
Paid with my $10 ECBs
Paid $0.49 + tax
Rec’d back ECBs for $6 and $4.99, making $0.50 on the transaction

Transaction #2
2 toothbrushes @ $3.99 = $7.98
Minus $.75 Colgate coupon
Minus $.75 Colgate coupon
Total due $6.48
Paid $6 ECB from above
Paid $0.48 + tax
Rec’d back ECB for $7.98, making $1.98 on the exchange

Are you sure you don’t want to learn “to CVS?” Come back later today for my primer for next week’s sales.
