CVS Trip 5/22: Saved 94%

I made a trip to CVS this evening to pick up a few of the great deals they had this week.  I wanted to spend as little as possible, so I split my trip into two transactions.

In my first transaction, I purchased:
CVS Training Pants @ $6.99.  Get $2 ECBs.
2 Irish Spring Body Wash @ 2 for $7  Get $5 ECBs.
Revlon Nail Polish $4.99 (Used $2/1 Revlon Color Cosmetics from 5/8 SS) Get $4 ECBs
Green Bag Tag $0.99 (Used FREE coupon from the little red machine.)

Paid with $16 ECBs ($11 from last trip, and my $5 Beauty Club reward that printed tonight) =  $1.06 OOP (Get $11 ECBs)

For my second transaction, I purchased:
3 Purex @ $1.98 each.  (Used 3  $1/1 from 5/1RP)
1 Trident @ $0.99.  Get $0.99 ECBs.
2 Suave Men Body Wash @ $2 each  (Used BOGO from today's RP, which actually took off $3 when scanned)
1 Suave Deodorant @ $1 (Used $0.50/1 from today's RP)
2 Suave Professional (Used $0.50/2 from today's RP) and 1 Suave Kids @ 3 for $5
       Get $3 ECBs WYB $10 of Suave
1 more Revlon Nail Polish*  $4.99 (Used $1/1 Revlon nail enamel from 4/10 SS)  Get$4 ECBs

Paid with $11 ECBs from above = $3.15 OOP  (Got $7.99 in ECBs)

*Note:  The first nail polish I got rang up $4.89 (clearance priced I suppose) and did not give my ECBs.  He refunded it and we tried a different one, that rang up $1.67, so we refunded that and tried again, and finally got one that worked.  The limit on these is 6, but the clearance prices will not give the ECBs so scan them before heading to the register because none of them had clearance signs.  Even after all the hassle, the cashier was very nice and even said he was impressed with my math skills. =D

Here is everything I got at CVS today:

Total Shelf Price:  $67.14
Total Sale Price:   $41.89
Price After Coupons:  $32.70
Price Paid After All ECBs:  $4.21 with $7.99 in ECBs remaining.  94% Savings

I have so few extra bucks I did lots of transactions this week. I am down to $3 -- OUCH!! Thanks for linking up your CVS shopping trip at Simply CVS.

Oh Cheryl, you've had so much going on I'm surprised you made it at all. But knowing you, you will have that back up in no time! I'll be watching for your trip.

I don't liking doing more than one transaction because i can't usually keep it all straight and i dont like holding up the line, but last night i got there right as the storm was hitting and there was a huge line when i walked in but it cleared out quickly and my cashier was super nice. I love CVS.

Good job! Looks terrific! That's kinda funny cause there was a storm coming in when I was at CVS too! :)

You did fabulous Amanda. If I had not stocked up on diapers, I'd definitely have picked up some training pants....that's a great price.

Thank you for linking up your savings at the Weekly Savings Linky @ Frugality Is Free.

@Jessica, there have been so many storms lately, I am not surprised!

@JR, thanks. I gave it a shot, but it wasn't going to well, so I grabbed diapers at aldi today. She won't be happy about those either...kid wants to be naked! LOL.
