Money Making CVS Trip Week of 5/15 ~ $25 CVS Gift Card Challenge Update

  I had another good week on my $25 CVS Gift Card Challenge with my free $25 CVS gift card from Swagbucks!  ...well, except for not getting any ECBs-haha!  Seems the whole system was down, so they couldn't even force them to print, but they made notes on my receipts and promised to print them when I bring the receipts back in  and the system is back up.  So I cut out the deals from the ad (so they'd have the code to print the ECBs) and attached the receipts to them, and put them with my shopping stuff so I remember to take it next time.



Total Cash Paid:  $ .02 + $ 1.38 = $1.40
