Share Your CVS Shopping Trip for the Weekly Ad of 8/7/2011

Did you find any good deals  from the CVS Weekly Ad of 8/7 to purchase?  If you blog about your shopping trip I'd love for you to put a link to your post (a link back would be appreciated, but not necessary); 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!

PLEASE NOTE:  ONLY link up to your CVS shopping post directly, all others will be removed.  I have had readers mention too many links are not to CVS shopping posts. I have not had the time over the last several weeks to check the links as I was in the beginning.  I hope to start again this week.

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, leave a link to it in a comment below and I will add it.

Cheryl said...

nice, Ladydi, you are stocked with beauty items from this week.

Magda said...

For the first time I had to do the bulk of the transaction planning while at the store. I'm very happy I was able to pull it off!

My CVS doesn't even carry those Dove treatment conditioners and since I had a $5 off $30 I wanted to use it on them to cover the OOP.

Ended up getting

$4.98 2 Herbal Essence Shampoo ($2.49 each)
$9 3 Softsoap Bodywash
$1.99 1 Skintimate Shave Cream
$8.49 1 Hydro 5 Razor
$1.98 2 J&J mini first aid
$1.27 1 Gold Emblem Popcorn
-----
$27.71
- $5 off $30 (the cashier told me the total was over $30 and accepted the coupon...I had a $5 of $25 with me as well & could have used that one instead)
- $1 Herbal Essence coupon (8/7 RP)
- $3.99 Herbal Essence (coupon for a FREE HE from FB promo last month)
- $2.50 Softsoap (2x$1 and 1x$0.50)
- $1.50 Skintimate (printable)
- $2.00 Schick Razor (8/7 SS)
- $1.50 /2 J&J Red Cross Coupon
- $2.00 Gold Emblem (CVS cpn from last week)
----
$8.22 -$7.99 in ECBs
----
Paid $0.23 plus tax

And got back $5 for Schick, $1 for Herbal Essence, $3 for Softsoap, and $1 for Green bag Tag ($10 in ECBs, $2 more than what I spent!)

*** FYI the Softsoap ECB had to be printed manually. Not sure why. It said offer limit reached on Mennen Buy 3 Get 3EB on receipt but no coupon printed.
I wonder if it's because of that handsoap I bought last week or was it two weeks ago where it was buy 3 get 3ECB as well.

Cheryl said...

You certainly did pull it off, Magda.

Crystal said...

I actually dropped by cvs to get the farmed chap stick on sale
The cvs I went to had physicians formula eyeshadow for .19 each ! I picked up 6 and used 1.00 coupon off physician formula make up

I also grabbed an herbal essence hairspray (2) for 1.14 each clearance - used (2) 1.00 off coupons

I got 1.00 back ecb thinking I was from my green bag tag - actually it's from the herbal essence ! It says limit reached on buy 2 and get 1.00 ecb ! Really crazy ! I was planning on doing 2/4.97 deal but I guess not anymore !

Cheryl said...

Wow, Anon, you really hit the jackpot with clearance & coupon combos!

Anonymous said...

i went to cvs evey day last week returning from my morning walk .everyday the coupon machine threw me coupons for 2 off gold emblem chips.finally sunday i went and got 7 packets of gold emblem chips for free as tehy were on sale for 2/$4.along with some toys my kid cried and made me buy:)and i donated all but one packet to my sons pre school :)

Cheryl said...

Nice job, Anon.

Pat said...

I used the Dove coupon from RP 7/31 today for "Buy one shampoo or conditions, get one treatment free".

There must be 2 different Dove promotions for the $5 ECB's because the Daily Treatment Conditioner was listed as one total and the Shampoo as another on the bottom of my receipt.

At the first store my coupons were entered at the $1.49 sale price. Luckily, I had more Q's at home and went to my favorite CVS! The cashier at the second store put my coupon for the free treatment in at $5.99 (regular price) BEFORE he scanned my CVS card. They rang up on sale there also and were reduced to $1.49 after he scanned my car but, I got a $4.50 in overage on each bottle!

pat said...

I should edit my previous comment to say it was $1.50 overage after both the Dove Shampoo + treatment.

Still, a nice unexpected surprise!
