Oh Mylanta! - Updated Math

TOTAL PROFIT FOR FEBRUARY $48.77

Sorry, I typed up this post late last night and my brain was doing funny things. I profited $7 yesterday, not $10.70. Still sounds good to me!

CVS

  • 2 Reeses eggs $0.75 each - sadly, one did not make it to the picture
  • 2 Mylanta Ultimate Strength Cherry - clearanced to $3.65 (check under price scanner) and got back $6 EB ($3 EB each, monthly deal, limit 5)
  • Used $2 EB, $2 EB and $5 EB, total was $0

I didn't have the $3 coupons (12/14 RP) with me, so I asked the Shift Supervisor if I could buy them without the coupons, come back later with the coupons and get cash back for them. She said that would be fine. So I went home, rooted around my coupons and realized I didn't get any $3 coupons in my circulars (or I put them in my expired pile already thinking I wouldn't use them). So I decided to use these $2 coupons instead (get emailed to you, you can print as many as you want). My sister and I went to a different CVS to see if they had any Mylanta (no luck) and while we were there, I decided to get my cash for coupons. The manager decided to return the Mylanta and have me rebuy them with the coupons. This meant that I got another $6 EB and they let me keep it. :) Total profit for the day - $10.70.

I was bummed - I looked at one of my CVS' and they did not have the Mylanta that was clearanced :( I'm hoping to check at the other one tomorrow - wish me luck!!

Just a random thing. Have you looked at www.spoofee.com? They have a free goods section that is pretty cool. And most the sample size stuff you get comes with coupons. :) Walmart ships the samples fast too!

Tanya,
I've only found these at one out of four stores I've checked so don't get discouraged.

Deb,
Thanks for the tip, I'll definitely check them out.

Do these Mylantas have an expiration date?

Shawn,
Awesome! I've only been able to find two, but I'm hoping I'll be able to find some more.

Lisa,
I'm not sure, the bottles I bought are already in my donation pile. I would guess they have a long shelf life.
