    CVS was totally awesome yesterday! I was lucky enough to receive the $15 Physician's Formula coupon from the red box. My store doesn't carry their skin care so we were allowed to use it on any product and it took off the full $15. Anyway, I bought:

    Blink $8.99 - $1q
    2 Revlon Polish $11.88 - $1q - $1q - $5cvs q
    Cottonelle Cover $1.99
    3 AG Cards $2.97- $2cvs q
    Dream Water $5.79
    Phys Form $13.29 - $15cvs q
    2 Caramels $.66

    Total before tax: $44.58 - $25q - $19.49ecb's = .09
    Got back: $ 27.77ecb's and Phys Form has a mail in rebate that may (or may not) work and I was only $10 away from another $5 Beauty Club so this should push me over. Grrrreat day!

    Christina, that's a great week even if you stop now :-). I wondered if the PF ECB printed or not, thanks for clarifying that.

    No other ECB deals interest me, so this might be my only transactions!

    Cheryl @ Simply Shoeboxes said...

    Nice trip, Katie. Some weeks are much slower than others. Don't you just love those free GCs from Swagbucks?

    Katie said...

    It's my first one and I can't wait to get more!

    What a great week to jump back into couponing. I went to CVS four times! And I might go again.
    Highlights from this week. The following does not include tax paid.

    Physicians Formula $10.79-$3 cvs q-$7 ecb = $0.79

    Hallmark cards 4 totaling: $9.56 - $3 cvs q - $2.50 mq from CVS RB mag -$3 ecb = $1.06

    Blink Tears $8.99 - $1 mq - $8.99 = $1 money maker

    U Kotex 16 ct pads $3.99 - $1 mq - $2 ecb = $0.99

    Simple Cleansing clothes $1.99 - $1.99 mq adjusted = FREE (note applies to this weeks ECB on Simple, wish I had more Q's to make it a MM)

    Simple Eye remover $1.99 - $1.99 mq adjusted = FREE

    4 Cottonelle covers $1.99 x 4 minus $1.99 ecb x 4 = FREE

    14 Altoids B1G1 total $9.59 - $10.00 Beauty club Reward = FREE plus .41 left to cover cost of something else

    Revlon box of files $4.39-$2.00 sq - $1.00 mq AND
    Revlon Eye primer $9.59 - $5.00 sq - $2.00 mq - $4.00 ECB = both items FREE with .02 money maker

    QUESTION: at the bottom of my receipt it says:
    Revlon Spend 10 get 4
    Amount toward this reward $14.18
    Amount needed to earn reward $10.00
    I did get one $4. ECB I believe the limit is 6
    I'm a little confused shouldn't it say $5.82 instead of 10.00 for me to get another ECB
    Do I have to spend 10 or 5.82?
    Thanks for your help.

    Congrats on your first free GC, Katie. If you add them to your wishlist and choose to receive emails if they go on sale they will email you and let you know. They have a different prize on sale each day and I have gotten the $10 CVS gift cards twice now on sale which makes the Swagbucks go even further.

    Cheryl @ Simply Shoeboxes said...

    That is confusing on the Revlon. I know monthly deals don't usually carry over, but weekly ones usually do. I am sorry I do not have an answer for you. But once again, I would encourage you to call 800shopcvs, they are great and will be able to look into it and let you know which it should be.
