CVS Shopping Trip Week of 8/9/2015 ~ Saved $38+ or 94%

I had an unusual CVS rain check this week.  A couple weeks ago there was an extra buck deal where you could earn $10 ECB's for buying five Speed Stick Gear Deodorants.  I had five $2/1 printable coupons -- but they stated only four could be used in one day.  I picked up the four that week shopping and thought I'd pick up the fifth at a different CVS later in the week.  I tried two different CVS stores and neither had them so I got a rain check at the last one.  I used the rain check and purchased the last one today and received the $10 extra bucks.  Details of my costs are below.

Transaction #1: 

Cash Paid:  $ 1.75 (before tax)

Amount Saved:  $ 20.21 or 92%

Extra Bucks Used:  $ 6.25

Extra Bucks Received:  None....but this transaction counted toward the rain check used below which generated a $10 extra buck.
