Back to CVS Shopping 11/20/2015

Hello everyone,

Several CVS stores have opened up in our area of Arkansas, so I’ll be slowly beginning to coupon shop again and slowly beginning to post again.  Today was my first trip to CVS in well over a year and I have to say that I didn’t have my head screwed on at all! Fortunately though, couponing at CVS rarely can go dreadfully wrong.

Here’s what I picked up today:

cvs11_20_15

Transaction 1
4 Cokes @ 12
1 Coke 2 liter @ 1.25
subtotal: 13.25
- $4.99 used free Coke coupon from mycokerewards.com (cashier took off $4.99- yay!)
- $1.25 used free Coke 2 liter mailer coupon
new total: $7.01, got $2 ECB

Transaction 2 (note I haven’t couponed in so long that I paid out the wazoo for a couple of items)
2 Tide @ 11.88
1 Tide pods @ 3.94
Gallon Milk @ 3.19
Suave kids @ .94 (clearance)
Sure @ 2
Edge @ 3.39
Dawn @ .99
subtotal: $26.33
- $2 Tide pods Q (11/1 PG)
- $1 Tide Q (11/1 PG)
- $0.30 off ONE Dawn Printable
-$5/$15 mailer Q
- $2 ECB from T1
new total: $16.03, got $5 ECB for Tide, $2 ECB for Edge and $1 ECB for Sure

Totals: $39.58 at sale prices ($65.15 retail at CVS) for $23.04 OOP, with $8 in ECBs to use next week for a net purchase today of $15.04. That’s a huge CVS purchase for us, but I’m pleased with 75% savings!  

Had I reversed the transactions as originally planned, my OOP would have been $7 less and I’d only be holding $3 in ECBs, but I’m certainly not worried about spending $8 in ECBs in the next month now that I have a CVS store nearby again. :-)
