CVS has some really incredible deals this week. One of those deals prompted me to buy 4 extra newspapers today and head on over this evening after I got the girls to bed. Here is what I came home with this trip:
Shelf Price: $47.94
Sale Price: $28.99
Price Paid After Coupons: $14.99
Price Paid with Tax after $12 ECBs: $3.25 AND I received $11 in ECBs.
Here's how I did it:
The Wisk is part of a sale on the front page of the ad. You have to buy $25 worth of selected items and you get back $10 in ECBs.
Wisk is on sale for $5. I bought 5.
--Used 5 $2/1 Wisk from one of this morning's RedPlum's (that's one reason I bought 4 extra papers!)
--This brings the total down to $15, then you will get $10 back in ECBs, so it is like paying only $1 per bottle of detergent. If you have some ECBs already, so can use them to bring your out of pocket expense down.
The Tums were on sale for $3.99, and giving back $1 ECBs. I happened to have a $3/1 Tums CVS store coupon that got randomly mailed to me. Maybe you got one too? There was also a $1/1 printable manufacturer coupon that I was able to stack with the store coupon to pay nothing for it, and still get my $1 ECB.
If you remember my last trip, you know I left with $11 ECBs, so you may be wondering how I ended up with $12. Well, when I walked into the store I scanned my card at the price scanner/coupon printer/little magic machine that I love, and lo and behold, my Fall spending ECBs printed--a whole $1. ;) That being said, if you are owed any, they should print on your next receipt, or if your store has a coupon printer, you can print it when you walk in. I believe you can also print them off of their website, too.
Now I say that this is my first trip for the week because I fully intend to go back.
--I want to use my FREE Excedrin coupons in conjunction with the buy $20 worth of Excedrin, get $10 back deal.
-- I am contemplating the Buy $10 worth of Glade products, get $3 back deal. Coupons.com had $3/1 Lasting Impressions coupons. I had about 4 of the Sense and Sprays on my laundry cart, and my bleach bottle spilled and ruined them all =(
--There is a $1/1 Xtra Detergent, which is on sale for $1.99, so only $0.99 after coupon. More cheap detergent!
-- There is a Spend $10 on certain dental products, get $5 back deal. Listerine Zero is $5, and there were $2/1 on coupons.com.
--Emerald Almond Canisters are BOGO free this week. There were $1/1 coupons in this morning's RedPlum also (the same one as the Wisk coupons), and you will be able to use two of those, so that should be a pretty great deal also. I totally forgot to check the price on those while I was there tonight.
I obviously do not want to get all of this stuff in the same transaction or I would end up paying a lot out of pocket. The first thing I will do is to plan out the best order to purchase them, and split them up into smaller transactions so I can roll my ECBs. I'm not sure I've ever had to do this in the same week before. Such great sales! I will let you know what I come up with.
