CVS wants to Pump (hand smack) You Up!


CVS - DBF's card

  • 6 Pro Max Bars - on sale this week three for $5, got back $10 ECB ($5 for every three that you buy, limit 5 - this is a Dec. monthly deal) = FREE ($1 coupons were in the 10/26 SS)
  • Complete 12 oz. contact solution $8.99, used $2 coupon here and got back $8.99 ECB (Dec. monthly deal, limit 2) = $2 profit
  • Used $3.99 ECB, $5.98 ECB and $5.99 ECB, total was $1.03

Second Transaction (different store)

  • 9 Pro Max Bars - on sale this week three for $5, got back $15 ECB ($5 for every three that you buy, limit 5 - this is a Dec. monthly deal) = FREE ($1 coupons were in the 10/26 SS)
  • Extreme Energy shot (4 oz) $4.99, got back $4.99 ECB (Limit 1) = FREE
  • Used $5 ECB, $5.69 ECB and $7.99 ECB, total was $1.31

I could have combined these two transactions into one, but I didn't want the big $25 ECB that I would have received for all the Pro Max bars.

Walgreens

  • 2 Reach Ultra Clean toothbrushes $3 each, used BOGO coupon (10/12 RP) and got back $6 RR (only when you buy 2) = $3 profit
  • Used $2 RR, total was $1.42

One last A&P Triples run:

  • 8 Knorr sides $1 each, used four $0.75 off 2 coupons (11/16 RP, tripled to $2.25 each, profit of $0.25 for every two) and got back $1.50 catalina for next shopping trip = $2.50 profit
  • Rayovac batteries $0.99, used $1 coupon (10/12 or 11/23 SS) = FREE
  • 2 Healthy Choice cold cuts $1.50 each
  • Used $1.50 RR from first trip, total was $0.26

How do you get so many coupons for all of those bars? Do you buy a lot of newspapers? How many? I love reading your blog. You get such awesome deals. I wish I was just 1% as good as you!!!

Laurie,
hehe, I was trying to find a good clip of Arnold saying it on youtube but couldn't find anything. A lot of times I use the Arnold voice in my head when I'm saying things to myself. Just makes life funnier! :)

Sashafras,
Thanks dahlin'! Unfortunately, I didn't get any of the Pro Max coupons in my paper so I bought all the bars coupon-less (gasp!). They're still free, so that was fine with me.
