This Week’s CVS Adventure

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.

This was the first time I was brave enough to do multiple transactions at CVS in order to maximize my savings. It worked! And they didn’t fuss at all. I think the cashier was impressed with what I got.

I generally only CVS if I need something, unless I can get stuff for free or more-than-free. In this case, I needed baby sunscreen. The CVS brand costs $7.99.

Transaction 1

–1 Bayer Contour glucose meter $14.99 – $13 coupon (I think it should have been for the whole $15, but I didn’t put up a fuss. It also has a rebate which I might try and see if I can get! If not, hey, nothing lost)
–1 Schick Quattro $8.99 – $4 coupon
–1 Bayer crystals 4 ct.

$8.98 + $1.77 tax = $10.75
Used $6.89 ECB
Paid $3.86
Got $11 ECB ($5 glucose meter, $4 razor, $2 aspirin)

Transaction 2

–1 12-pack Lipton teas $5.99
–1 6 oz. Stacy’s pita chips $3.00 – $1 coupon
–1 bag Doritos $3.00
–baby sunscreen $7.99 <-- got for free b/c of buying above 3 items [spend $10, get sunscreen promotion]

$10.99 + .93 tax
Used $9 ECB from above transaction
Paid $2.92 OOP

The baby sunscreen itself was $7.99. I paid $6.78 total for everything here. I could have used my other $2 ECB that I earned in transaction 1, but I decided to keep them for next time (silly, like it matters one way or the other).

  1. This is the first time that CVSing has even remotely made sense to me. i want to talk more about this tomorrow!

  2. Try using “Grocery Game” even if just for a few months. It helps figure it out for you. It’s fun and puts your coupons to the best use on the exact sale.
