    Nothing for us this week, except DH's razors. Which I have, in 4 years, NEVER seen a coupon for. We lucked out with the Gillette ECB's, and $5 off 25$ purchase! That's for EIGHT refills.../sigh. $18.

    Anon, that's what's nice about those $5/25's you can make your own sale on things you never get a good deal on. Still maybe not fantastic, but at least better.

    I used my $4 off $20 coupon, $3 ECB, a $2 off manufacturers coupon, and my CVS Swag Bucks gift cards to get a box of Pampers. I got $5 ECB back. Basically, I spend one $10 gift card for 82 diapers which is a good deal in my book. I love when I get freebies and money makers, but I save real money by taking advantage of deals like this. And to think, there was a time I thought Wal-Mart was the best place to shop for diapers. :)

    You are right, Amie, we are so brain washed into thinking discount stores are the best deal. With a little work we can save so much more at CVS. And with Swag Bucks now offering CVS gift cards--you can't beat the combination.

    I got 2 Heidi Klum perfume sets $14.99 each
    1 pkg huggies $11.99
    1 Vitamin Water $1.00
    1 clearance kids allergy med .54

    I used
    $5/$25 CVS coupon
    $5/$20 Fragrance coupon - printed on Sat to use in Sunday
    $1.50 off huggies
    Free huggies CVS coupon - buy 6 get 7th free $11.99
    Used $10.00 ECB and paid .08 oop.
    Got a $10.00 gift card back.

    Not a bad trip at all, I thought the perfume sets would make good stocking stuffers.

    Cheryl @ Simply Shoeboxes said...

    Fantastic job, Anon!! I am sure there will be some happy people come Christmas to get the perfume sets--very nice. Love when what I get back is just what I paid!

    This week I got $43 worth of beauty product, and with last week's left over in the account, I should be getting another $5 eb from the beauty club, which in my book, makes up for the lack of eb from transaction #3.

    Hope this gives people an idea :)

    Oops, forgot to include another $1 eb I got from the St. Joseph's Aspiring raincheck.

    Wow! Martha, you had a fantastic trip!! I have never gotten the hang of figuring out buying extra things for the beauty club--I'll just get it down pat and they will stop it. lol You have done great. I see you are loving those Swag Bucks CVS gift cards, too.
