CVS Trip: 1/30

I really was not feeling like going back out to CVS tonight after going to church this morning, Kroger to pick up my husband's meds and get my $25 grocery credit loaded to my card (haven't done my big Mega Sale shopping yet...I'm waiting for my free money), and Fiesta to grab lettuce tomatoes and cheese to go with our hamburgers. Yes, I had to pay for cheese because I haven't gone to Kroger yet. =(

But, I knew my $5/$25 coupon was expiring tonight, as well as a $10 off Physicians formula that had printed on a receipt a while back, and it when perfectly with the $7 ECBs back on a $10 Physicians Formula purchase deal this week.  They actually had a lot of Physicians formula on clearance 75% off, but after speaking with the manager, I discovered that the clearanced items would not produce extra bucks, so I opted for one priced at $13.99 instead.  I also grabbed one marked down to $2.75 just because I wanted to try it ;)

I was glad to see that the Coke deal was still going on this week, because I never made it there last week to get any.  I did have to improvise a little bit because the shelves were nearly bare.  Here is what I came home with this time.  It was a bit of a splurge over what I normally spend, and the Cokes are a real treat for us, because I almost never get them.  I spent quite a bit, but I just keep telling myself that I spent less than what the Coke's should have cost, and I got money back.  =)

Total Shelf Price:  $77.86
Total Sale Price:   $53.21
Price After Coupons:  $30.22
Price After $17 ECBs from last trip and tax:  $14.31   AND I got back $19 in ECBs.   82% Savings.

You did really well on your CVS savings. I completely understand about not wanting to go though. I have been sick all last week (suspecting bronchitis), and I was in no mood or condition to shop...yet it had to be done, or my husband would go shop...which would become very expensive.

I got in on the Coke deal last week, but the first store I went to was out of almost everything. I went back to another store a few days later, and they were well stocked, but they said they had just gotten everything in. It seems like that is a pattern everywhere.

Anyway, I am actually coming by to thank you for commenting at the
The Aldi Spot

I do have a question? When was the last time you saw the prices you mentioned? I am in awe of what a price difference from my S. Fl stores, and I thought our prices were cheap to begin with.

Oh, the days when I used to get those $5/25's. Nice shop. Thanks for linking up your CVS shopping trip at Simply CVS.

@jrfugalmom, my family can't believe the prices around here either. I love Aldi. I get an ad on Wednesday's here, and usually do a blog post about the produce deals, because I think those are the most amazing thing about Aldi. I will try to remember to drop by and let you know what they are!

and to both of you...I'm sorry you stopped getting those coupons. I'm really dreading the day they decide to stop sending them my way. I've only been shopping CVS for a little over a year now, so I guess my time is coming...=(

Amanda, I do remember getting the CVS coupons years ago.

I would definitely appreciate a Dallas Texas update on the Aldi prices, and of course, I will make sure to link back to you, whenever I highlight your price updates.

That would be awesome. I usually just highlight the advertised produce, but I am there at least once a week getting milk and whatnot, so let me know what items you would like me to keep my eye on for you. I love that store. Ours just opened last March and I swear I have not been back inside a Wal-mart to buy groceries ever since! lol.
