This weekend was a little low key in terms of shopping. DBF and I went hunting for a deserted town on the NJ/PA border he'd heard about. Guess we should've done our research...cause we didn't find it! We did drive around for an hour or so. We both love doing this and its fun to explore...and if we get lost, he has a GPS, so I don't worry about going new places. We had lunch at Red Robin, jumped into Kohl's to use a $10 Kohl's coupon I had and returned a shirt I'd bought previously at the outlet mall. We also did a little hounding:
CVS - Saturday DBF's card
  • 2 Sure deodorants $2.69 each - used BOGO coupon (6/29 SS)
  • 4 J&J Bath Buddies $0.99 each - used two $2 coupons from here = FREE
  • Revlon tweezers $2.99 - $1 coupon (4/6, 4/13 or 5/18 SS) - thought there was a deal going on now where you get $5 ECB WYB 2 Revlon tools - NOPE! But I actually needed tweezers, so I kept this pair. I returned the other Revlon tools I'd bought.
  • Coupons used: $4 off $20 (4th of July coupon emailed to me)
  • Got back $3 ECB for Sure. Total is all screwy because I returned 3 Revlon tools.

Walgreens - Saturday

  • 2 Cutter 1 oz. insect spray 2 for $3, had two $1 coupons (6/15 SS) and used $1 coupon from WAG monthly booklet (scans twice b/c had two items) = -$1
  • Bottle of Diet Coke for DBF to cover overage
  • Total was $0.91 - used WAG gift card

CVS - Sunday

  • Transferred RX and got $25 CVS gift card for doing so. There was a coupon about a month or two back and my CVS manager ok'd me to use it and to hold onto the coupon until my RX was due to be refilled. Yay!
  • 3 Olay facial washes $5.99 each - 3 $3 coupons (6/22 SS) = $2.99 each and get $10 ECB WYB $20 worth. I'm waiting for some coupons from my fellow hounders on the WIR message boards, then I'll buy more.
  • 3 newspapers $2 each
  • Gallon of milk $4.39
  • Coupons used: $3 off facial skin care (CVS coupon from scanner), $4 off $20 (for updating email address at, three $3 Olay coupons, $1.99 ECB, $2.99 ECB, $2.99 ECB, $2.99 ECB
  • Total was $1.41 and paid with gift card. Will get back $10 ECB for Olay once I buy one more.

I get so irritated with CVS. I dont understand why some were able to get the Revlon Tools on the $5 ECB Revlon Deal, while others like us were not. You would think it would be the same for all stores.

Hmm, that is odd. Usually when there's a hidden deal, it works for most people (it seems, anyway). I'm sure another Revlon deal will pop up somewhere, so I'm not too worried.
