Saved 100% at CVS Shopping Week of 5/1/2016

 I had a $5 ECB that expired soon that was part my $25 CVS Gift Card Challenge with my free $25 CVS gift card from Swagbucks, so I had to spend that much at CVS this week...turned out to be harder than you'd think! Haha!  Thankfully with combining ECB deals, printable coupons, scanner coupons, and email coupons I spent it and came out with even more ECBs then I went in with!  I was excited to see that I got $3 ECBs back from the cards I was buying with the coupon-I found out you could actually do it 3 times, for a total of $9 ECBs, although I didn't do that here.



Totals:  [see details below]

Cash Paid:  $ .00 [$.94 tax]

Amount Saved:  $ 22.80 or 100%

Extra Bucks Used:  $ 5.00

Extra Bucks Received:  $ 10.00
Transaction #1:

2 -- Hallmark Cards @ $.99 each = $1.98 [Get $3 ECB when you buy 3]
1 -- Hallmark Card @ $2.29
Used 1 -- $3 off shopping trip with purchase of 3 Hallmark Cards printable coupon

3 -- Colgate Toothpastes @ $2.99 each = $8.97 [Get $1 ECB on one -- Limit 3]

1 -- Sure Deodorant @ $1.75 receive $1 ECB
Used 1 -- $.75/1 printable coupon (see below)

$0.75 off (1) Sure Antiperspirant/Deodorant

Since that coupon is no longer available, I thought I'd share this one as it's part of the same deal:

This is shopping trip #4 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  $38.33 worth of CVS spending power and have purchased $86.91 worth of products.  See the spread sheet below for details of my current totals.
