CVS Shopping Trip for Weekly Ad of 4/17 ~ Saved 100% - over $25!!

I had a free CVS shopping trip this week.  It is my third trip for my $25 CVS Gift Card Challenge with my free $25 CVS gift card from Swagbucks.  I was excited to be able to pick up some free greeting cards.  I like to keep them on hand so I am always ready to send a word of encouragement or celebration to friends and family.  [Check out my other blog, Sarah's Scribblings, to see my mailing adventures.]

I was able to save 100% on my shopping trip by combining extra bucks, manufacturer coupons and CVS coupons.  Here's how:

Cash Paid:  $ .00 [$1.45 with tax]

Amount Saved:  $26.44  or 100%

Extra Bucks Used:  $5.00

Extra Bucks Received:  $6.00 total
  • $2.00 on Zantac
  • $4.00 on Speed Stick Gear 
Plus a $0.25 off any dish soap rebate from Ibotta.

My Transaction Details:

Bought 2 -- Speed Stick @ $4.00 each receive $2.00 Extra Bucks each
Used 2 of these printable coupons:

$2.00 off (1) Speed Stick GEAR Deodorant

Bought 1 -- Zantac @ $8.99 receive $2.00 extra bucks
Used 1 (one) $4.00 off (1) Zantac 24 ct. or larger printable manufacturer coupon [no longer available]
Used 1 (one) $5/1 Zantac product, 24ct+ printable CVS coupon

If  you didn't get these when available to print and would like to buy Zantac, you could substitute this coupon for it, wouldn't be as great of a deal, but still a great savings:

$3.00 off any ONE Zantac 24 count

Bought 3 -- Hallmark Cards [2 @ 99 cents each and 1 @ $2.00]
Used 1 -- $3 off 3 Hallmark Cards printable coupon
Used 1 -- 20% off any one item CVS email coupon [took off 21 cents]

Bought 1 -- Ajax Dish Soap @ $.88
Used 1 -- $.25 manufacturer Sunday insert coupon
Used 1 -- $.39 CVS scanner coupon printing this week
Received $0.25 off any dish soap Ibotta rebate

This is shopping trip #3 in my CVS gift card challenge.  My $25 CVS gift card earned on Swagbucks plus extra bucks and cash back earned on purchases made with it total  $34.27 worth of CVS spending power.  See the spread sheet below for details of my current totals.
