Halloween in July

Just doing a quick post in between thunderstorms. Its been so hard to get anything done lately, we've had a storm almost every day this week. A $1 off 2 Mars bars coupon was printing every day this week at CVS from the coupon machine.  I stopped in every day to get my coupons and saved them to make one big trip per card so I could combine them with other deals and use a $4 off $20 coupon (from ebay).  Here's a condensed list of what I got:

  • A whole lotta Mars candy bars $0.50 each, used $0.50 off 2 tearpad coupons and $0.75 off 2 Milky Way coupons = FREE or profit 
  • Revlon Nail Polish $4.99, used $1 coupon (6/24 SS) and got back $3 EB each (Limit 6) *Combined with $5 off $15 beauty CRT on one card for $2.03 profit 
  • Infusium 23 $3.67 (clearance price), got back $4 EB (Limit 1) = $0.33 profit 
  • 2 AMP Energy (16 oz) or Starbucks Refreshers (12 oz) $1.50 each, got back $3 EB (WYB 2, Limit 1) = FREE 
  • Stayfree Pads (14-24 ct) $2, used $2 coupon (7/22 SS) = FREE
  • Conair Bobby Pins $2.19, used $2 hair accessories CRT = $0.19
  • CVS Men's Body Wash $3.99, used $3 CRT for CVS body wash
  • Cheez Its $3.59 each
  • 5 Vitamin Waters $1 each, got back $1 EB (WYB 5, monthly deal) - had to get a manual print on this
Rolled a bunch of soon to be expiring EB's and got a huge stash of Halloween candy for free!  
Stop & Shop - there's a gas promo this week where you get $0.30 off a gallon when you buy four Revlon beauty tools.  They're on sale for $1 less than normal price.

  • Emery Boards $1.29 and $1.49 each
  • Nail Clippers $0.89 and $1.49 each
  • Tweezers $1.49 and $1.99 each
Your store's selection will obviously dictate which ones you buy, but keep to the cheapest ones you can find.  I used the $1 off beauty tools coupon from the 6/24 SS to make this an even better deal.

$0.30 a gallon for 35 gallons is $10.50 - so as long as your four items are less than this, you've made a profit!

Happy shopping dear friends

You did great! Really amazing! I've been couponing for awhile, but I still hope that one day I'll be able to get deals such as you are able to. :D

Thanks! It really helps to have several cards. That way when there's a great deal, you can really take advantage of it.
