Another CVS scenario

I went to CVS today and here's one scenario/transaction:

1 pack of Goody headache powder 1.29
2 packs of Cascade action pacs 3.49 each:6.98
1 pack cvs hand soap pump: 1.99

-2 skincare coupon
-2 off 10 coupo
-2 (0.25) cascade coupon
-1.49 ECB
-2.00 ECB
Total: $2.27 + .17 tax= $2.44

Another potential scenario for later on:
Cover Girl Aqua Smoother BOGO $9.99
Colgate Total 2.99
- 2 off 10
- CG BOGO coupon in Sunday paper 9.99 (PG 8/31)

Total should be 0.99 + Tax and then you get $2.00 back ECB

CVS Deals for 8/31 - 9/6 ( In my case, 8/29 to 9/4 )

Centsible Savings: CVS Deals for 8/31 - 9/6
I did some of the suggestions. I ended up paying $17.67 (after tax) and getting $27.55 in ECBs...I'd say it's not bad. Okay, the Diego toy is not on sale...

Anyway...the key is use more than one Extra Care Card. Remember Christmas is coming before you know it....those lipsticks, nail polish and such are great gifts for teachers or mom or sisters....

And folks ...don't forget all the Walgreens rebates this month...It's a biggie IMHO.

My best deal yet

Okay Folks...I think I'm getting the hang of this.

I went into a CVS looking for Advil Pain Reliever Susp for kids...

I came out with the shower cleaner(marked down from 24.99 to 6.25), CVS toothbrush (1.99), and a bottle of Advil Susp (5.79) for $0.35

After praying for God's guidance in locating all the coupons, I was able to find a $5 coupon for the shower cleaner and $6.99 ECB.

So, after all this, I received $5.79 ECB....the employees were going on and on saying they should have bought the shower cleaner...oh, well...sorry

(Don't worry if you're already a "CVSer"; you're allowed to enter too!) To enter, leave me a comment letting me know you'd like to try your hand at the art of "CVSing". If you're an old hat, tell us about your CVS savings to help encourage those who still haven't jumped on the bandwagon! Post the giveaway on your blog for a second entry. (Just leave a 2nd comment letting me know you posted.) If you don't have a blog, tell (or email) 3 people about this giveaway, and I'll enter you a second time too! (Leave a 2nd comment telling me who you told [sister, aunt, friend]). Please make sure I have a way to contact you.
I'll be randomly picking a winner next Saturday, August 9!"
