CVS week of 7/17/2016

Jenny at SouthernSavers used to say this was a FREE store, and today I finally felt like I understood what that meant.   I started fresh today with no extra care bucks.   I paid $14.80 out of pocket when I checked out (including tax) and in return I got $15 in extra care bucks. This made everything FREE…. they even paid me .20 cents to take it all out of the store!

I do have to say that it seems the system kicked some of my coupons off my order, which I didn’t catch until now.  However, it did not mess up with my extra care bucks, and since it ended up being free I will not dispute it.  However the chatty customer that wanted to talk coupons while the cashier was scanning mine was a little frustrating, and made concentrating hard to do.


I got 2 of the Colgate Max Toothpaste which are $2.99 and you get $2 ecb / limit 2  –  So I bought 2 , used my $1 off 2 coupon from inserts, and one of the coupons that didn’t apply was my $2 off 2 Toothpaste personalize CVS coupon.  I did get my $4 ecb

I got 2 of the Colgate Total Mouthwash which were $5.29 ea.   The special is spend $10 and get $5 ecb.   I used a $2 off $6 mouthwash personalized CVS coupon.  I also have (2) $2 coupons from 6/26 Smart Source.   So I paid $4.98 and got $5 ecb

I bought one Skinitmate Shaving Cream for $3.49 – used no coupons and got a $5 ecb.

Irish Spring 3 pack of bar soap for $2. I had the $1 Redbox coupon.   I paid $1 and got $1 back in ecb.

Dawn Dish Soap the small bottle was .99 cents, and the Redbox gave me .24 coupon so the total was to be .75 but my coupon didn’t apply.

I bought 6 of the Nabisco cookies for $1.99 (Buy 1 Get 1 Free)  – I used (2) $1 off 3 insert coupons since I missed the printables.   I only find 1 of the $1 coupons attached to my receipt.

I also have the $6 off $30 order, as well as a $1 extra buck reward on my account.

So I really over paid by $3.24 + tax.  So this could be a $3.44 money maker if all the coupons applied correctly.

I will just be happy with my FREE order. 🙂
