CVS Shopping trip 5/10 ~ A Money Making Trip

 I had a great money making trip today (I actually received more extra bucks back  than the cash and extra bucks I spent).  By combining coupons and extra buck deals you can come out ahead shopping at CVS.  Check out this week's top deals here.

I spent: $2.00 (tax only) on my gift cards earned online, $22.99 in extra bucks and received $31.49 back in extra bucks increasing my CVS spending power by $6.50.   My receipt shows I saved $52.12 today.
I purchased:
1 -- Carefree 22's  @  $1.00 (used $1/1 insert coupon)
2 -- Rightguards   @  $2.49/ea (used a $3/2 printable coupon)
1 -- Crest Pro Health  @  $3.50 (used a $.75/1 insert coupon--the ecb limit on this was two but I got confused and thought it was one so I could have done another one)
1 -- Kotex U  @  $4.99 (used a $1/manuf. coupon & $1/CVS coupon)
1 -- Hydro 5 Razor  @  $8.99  (used a $5/1 insert coupon)
1 -- Bayer Contour Monitor  @  $19.99 (used a $10 insert coupon)

Happy CVSing!

That is fantastic!! I will try and post my trip later on....but I wanted to mention that Bayer Aspirin is on sale 10 for $10 and I found a $1 off any Bayer aspirin coupon and got that for free. I think it was from Smart Source!

I'll be watching for yours--I just added this to Gather!

Great find on the Bayer--love those freebies! I tested a theory I had seen online about saving oop and will posting about it later--saved me some $$ today.

Great trip Cheryl! I can't wait to hear your theory! Did you get your Right Guard deoderants for $2.49? In the add it's $2.99, but was curious if there were some that were $2.49. Thanks.

Cheryl @ Simply Shoeboxes said...

Yes, my Right Guards were $2.49, I did read on some couponing sites that it varies across the country, not sure I have seen a report as to how they ring up, just that some ads say $2.99. I was glad for the $2.49--great money maker. I'll work on the saving oop post soon (I hope).

Cheryl @ Simply Shoeboxes said...

I guess I didn't clarify-- MY ad shows $2.49.

Cheryl said...

That's great that they are $2.49 in your area. They are $2.99 here. You got a great deal!

That's great that they are $2.49 in your area. They are $2.99 in mine so not quite as good a deal...
