Share Your CVS Shopping Trip for the Week of 1/16/2011

Did you find any good deals at CVS the Week of 1/16 to purchase?  If you blog about your shopping trip I'd love for you to put a link to your post; and if you don't blog please leave a comment below.  I really enjoy seeing what others get and it is a great way to learn how to CVS.  I learned from reading and
reading and reading what others did. I am still learning!

If you have a linky on your blog and are linking up here, add "link up" to your title below so readers can link up at your blog, too.
If you'd like to see some saavy shopping at other stores, or if you'd like to link up your CVS deals trips to other places here are a few to check out.  If you are a blogger and have a weekly savings linky and would like it added, email the link, day and title of your blog and I'll gladly add it as I know I missed some.

I went to CVS today and was able to find an unadvertised deal with Chestal Honey cough syrup. It's on sale for $5 and you get $5 ECB making a nice freebie for this time of the year.

Great find, Anon! I'm going to make note of this to post tomorrow morning.

I haven't shopped for this week yet but I did find some great deals this past Saturday. My CVS had a bunch of body wash and shampoo/conditioner on clearance for $1.19 - $1.50. I was able to use 1 Dove coupon I had for $1 off and I had a 10% coupon from joining the Beauty Club. I bought 8 bottles of body wash, 2 bottles of conditioner, 2 bottles of shampoo and 1 bottle of hair mousse (oh, and a Dove chocolate bar) for $13.29. I know I can get a lot of these items for free over time but I really needed to stock up on body wash for my teenager!

Suzy, it is funny how we often look at great deals as spending too much because we, and what we see of others, often get so much for just pennies. That is why I am re-thinking my strategy this year, to spend more, but save more. I get to where I don't want to spend on anything once I have gotten something for free--not a good practice.
Glad you found a fantastic deal on what you needed.

I am so excited! I went to CVS today and it printed me out a Listerine coupon for $3 off when you buy two. I bought two due to the fact that I had two coupons and the limit for the Extra Bucks was 2. So I got 2 extra bucks back and $5.00 off. My total was $5.74- I also bought batteries, dawn, crest, three bags of nuts and one can of nuts. I was so happy and the clerk said, "Please come and shop here again."

I have been reading the posts on simply cvs and shopping the deals every week faithfully at cvs for a few months now and I think I finally got the hang of this. I had an amazing cvs shopping trip this week, finally one worth sharing!! I have had a few other really good trips but never felt they were good enough for posting until this week.

What I bought

5 friskies cat food $4 each = $20
5 rolls christmas wrap .29+.59+.59+.59+.79=$2.85(all Christmas items were 90% off!!)
1 bag christmas bows .39
1 roll holiday ribbon .29
2 rolls holiday tags .19 each =.38
2 boxes rice krispies $1.79 each
2 orbit gum $1.29 each b1g1 sale and b1g1 free coupon=2 free packs of gum!!
1 toms deodorant 3.99
1 crest toothpaste 2.99

After deducting several coupons and extra bucks my total oop was only .01, yep I handed the cashier just one penny!!! I guess ecb’s can go towards tax after all, I know there has been questions about this. Then the cashier handed me my receipt and announced that I also received 10 ecb to boot. The customer behind me looked at my cart, looked at me and said “wow, now that was impressive” it was so exciting! The bottom of my receipt says today you saved $90.63 and My year to date savings is already $292.24. I also still have 32ecb to use next week. When I got home and showed my family they were amazed. My son said, so, they actually paid you $9.99 to take all this stuff, lol. Thank you all for all your teachings, I am trying to be the best student in the class, haha.

Cheryl @ Simply Shoeboxes said...

Marnie, it is so exciting to get a great scanner coupon that is unexpected and good for just what is on an ecb deal. Glad your cashier was happy for you! congrats.

Cheryl @ Simply Shoeboxes said...

Saywhat, I'd say you've gone to the head of the class! A+ for you. You got almost $100 for a penny. Now that is great CVSing. I bet your family was amazed. Your ytd savings is actually before this trip--as those totals are about 48 hours behind--so you have saved a great amount already. And you are already stocking up for next Christmas. Congrats. Thanks so much for sharing.

My store was out of everything I wanted. I will try again on friday or maybe a different store if I go out today. I did get a gallon of TG Lee milk for $3.49, used $1.00 internet print from the dairy website making it $2.49, used my bag tag and got $1 ecb back.

Cheryl @ Simply Shoeboxes said...

Missy, I was replying to this when our power went out :-(. Back on now and will try again. Not bad on the milk at all! Don't forget those rain checks if you never find the stuff. I think it will Saturday before I get to go.

Jane said...

My store in Florida had Sally Hansen products for 75% off and Dove shampoo for $1.14 (75%) off. These were some great deals with the printable Sally Hansen coupons and I also received a $1 coupon in the mail for Dove products along with a free sample. CVSing has become a favorite way to spend an afternoon.

Cheryl @ Simply Shoeboxes said...

I haven't printed off the Sally Hansen's yet, I do so much posting and searching that I forget to get the coupons for myself. Sounds a very pleasant afternoon of deal finding for you, Jane. Those clearances with coupons are great.

Unknown said...

my CVS run today. 71% savings over retail, when I use my **post-tax** total (our tax is 10%, so deals that say 'free' on a $10 item still cost me $1, and that adds up!)

12 12-packs of Pepsi (LOVING the throwback as much as I hate HFCS!)
1 Sally Hansen nailpolish
1 crest mouthwash (MM - $1)
1 crest toothpaste
2 6-packs of Boost (There's a $1 ECB/1 deal on the 6-packs this week which I didn't know until I got there- it makes it cheaper per bottle than the 12-pack deal)
3 small boxes Puffs Plus
4 packs Orbit gum (BOGO w/ BOGO coupon)
2 bottles Dawn dishwashing liquid
1 Tom's of Maine deodorant

Total Retail Value: $113.64
ECBs Used: 31 (had 11 going in, did 3 Tx's)
Total Spent OOP: $32.88
Total remaining ECBs: 9

Cheryl @ Simply Shoeboxes said...

Great trip, Becky, that tax is a killer. Ours is almost 8%, not quite as bad, but for years I didn't have to pay tax if I used extra bucks.

I found that Boost deal, too, it is a monthly deal actually, Sarah is working on a post to put up for others to see.

I just noticed all those other sites you have listed that do link ups! Thanks so much for that because I've been looking for some more. I've finally started getting a few more readers on my blog and random facebook friends are messaging me asking coupon questions. I'm getting a Thanks for helping me find more places to show off my posts! I love your site. I send people to it when they ask about cvs because it just takes so long to explain and you have it all laid out so clearly. ;)

Cheryl @ Simply Shoeboxes said...

You are welcome, Amanda, I don't why I didn't think of it earlier. Thanks for sending people to Simply CVS to learn the art of CVSing. You are right, it is time consuming to explain. Best wishes on your continued growth!
