CVS Rain Check Shopping: Saved 95%

I didn't really see anything in this week's CVS ad I wanted so I dug out my rain checks to see what I could get a deal on.  I had a rain check for Ragu -- spend $10 get $3 back at the sale price of $1.50 each.  I also had three $1 manufacturer coupons to use so I thought this was a good time to use it.  There were no signs for the candy deal at my store, nor was it in the ad, but I scanned one and the sale price came up so I took a chance in a second transaction and sure enough, the extra buck printed.

Cash Paid:  $ .87

Amount Saved:  $ 17.55  or 95%

Extra Bucks Used:  $ 7.50

Extra Bucks Received:
  • $ 3.00 [Ragu RC]
  • $ .87 [Candy] 

I also checked out the clearance for items to be packed in some Operation Christmas Child shoe box gifts next Christmas and found some fun Valentines clearance at 90% off.  I used some free CVS gift cards earned on Swagbucks to pay, so there was no out of pocket cost.  If you haven't started earning free gift cards from Swagbucks check it out.  It is free and easy.
