    Anon, this was a hard week for rolling extra bucks. Sarah still had a lot of BF ECBs, too, so did a lot like you did--picked up sale items with many and rolled a few. You got some great stuff with them.

    Nikkochic, nice trip. Nice that CVS has had some slow weeks here during the Holidays, but we will be ready for some great deals to come our ways after the new year! I have never even heard of AquaPhor Lip Balm :-). Glad you were able to get a good price on it.

    nikkochic said...

    Its actually a lip repair. which is very helpful for the eczema around this time of the year.. it quite pricey 1.99 is excellent reg.price 4.99 ouch...

    All of my CVS's in my area of CT allow ECB's to be used up to 2 weeks after expiration, just as a CVS coupon can be. I have felt pressure to use all of my ECB's this week as well but keep reminding myself that I have 2 more weeks.

    I did get the
    (2) Hershey's Kisses bags
    (2) M&M's Holiday bags
    (1) A/H Spinbrush
    (1) Oral B Toothbrush

    -$4/20 CVS
    -$1 Hershey's Kisses printable
    -$1/2 Kisses CVS CRT
    -$3/2 M&M's CVS
    -$1 M&M (Mars)
    -$2 A/H Spinbrush printable
    -$2 Oral B
    -$5.86 ECB
    OOP = $.13

    Wanted to use the $4/20 on a ProNutrients rain check from last week but th estore was still out. Again, I felt a little pressured to use my BF ECB's.

    MansfieldMomma said...

    Forgot to mention that I received ECB's back, $2 for Hershey's, $3 for Spinbrush, $1 for Oral B, and $1 for Green Bag Tag. So, $6 spent and $7 earned. Gotta love those $4/20 emails.

    Cheryl @ Simply Shoeboxes said...

    How nice on the expired ECBs use ability, Kelly. And you are right, those $4/20's really help. After you eat your candy goodies you have great brushes to clean your teeth with :-).
