CVS Shopping Trip for Weekly Ad of 4/3 ~ Money Making Trip

It was a great week to begin my new Free $25 CVS Gift Card Shopping Challenge!  Armed with just coupons and the free gift card from Swagbucks I was able to bring home $28+ in products and still have $32+ which includes the balance on the gift card and the extra bucks I earned today.  So this shopping trip turned into a "money maker."  Editing 4/8 to add:  I received $1.50 back in my SavingStar account for the Suave products so I will add that to my gift card making my net spendable from this gift card $34.10.

I also should receive $ 1.00 back from SavingStar on the Suave.  I check their offerings weekly and always claim any I hope to take advantage of so when a deal comes up and it is no longer available it will be in my account already "clipped" if it hasn't expired. This is a good example of that.  EDITING to add:  I actually received $1.50 back from SavingStar and have edited the spreadsheet to include that.

  Here are the rebates from SavingStar:

The Suave products also count towards CVS Beauty Club (spend $50 get $5 ECB).

This is shopping week #1 in my CVS gift card challenge.  See the spread sheet below for my current totals.  As you can see I have more to spend at CVS than when I went this morning.
