I haven’t shopped at CVS in a while. It’s mostly because I haven’t had much extra time and also because I haven’t really needed anything. I finished up at school yesterday so now I’ll have more time for blogging and finding deals. I’ve missed you all.
Here are the deals I got at CVS today.
12 pack of Pepsi – reg $4.99, $3.34 sale
-used CVS coupon to get 12 pk for $.99
*This deal is good for today only!

-Used CVS coupon for $3 off $10 first aid products.
The regular price of these items was $38.62.

Be sure to scan your CVS card at the CVS coupon machine. Happy saving!
On Wednesday, June 15 you can a 12 pack of Pepsi at CVS for only $.99! To get your coupon simply scan your extracare card at the CVS coupon center. Limit one 12 pack per coupon. This offer is available on 6/15/11 only.
I headed to CVS tonight after dinner. There were some things from the sales flyer that I wanted to purchase. Unfortunately, CVS was out of a few things that I wanted to get but I will check back later in the week. I’m pleased with today’s deals.

The regular price of all of these items is $14.57. I spent $5.22 out of pocket but received back $6.99 in ECBs which makes today’s purchase FREE plus an overage of $1.77.
I stopped in to CVS tonight mainly to pick up the free Crest toothpaste. While I was there I walked around the store a little to see if there were any more deals. Here’s what I found:
Crest Pro Health toothpaste reg $3.49, sale $3.29
Buy 1 for $3.29 get back $3.29 in ECBs = FREE (limit 2)
Used $1 off coupon from 2/27/11 P&G

Used buy 1 get 1 free coupon from 1/9/11 SS
Final price = $2.51 for 2
Depend for Women $7.29 reg, $1.82 close out
FYI – These aren’t for me.
I was disappointed that I could not find a coupon for the Depends. After leaving the store I discovered that there was a $2 coupon in the 12/20/11 SmartSource coupon packet which would make them free.
Total = $1.04
My total for both transactions was $3.33 for a savings of 83%. The great thing about shopping with coupons and saving so much money is that I am able to help others and pass on the savings.
Did you find any good deals this week?

What kinds of deals have you found this week?
During my trip to CVS earlier this week I was able to use some CVS Extra Care Bucks before they expired. I also got back $8 in ECBs which I used today for some other deals.
In today’s transaction, I spent 39 cents (pre-tax), saved over $36, and got back another $5 in ECBs. It was a great shopping trip.

When I was getting my coupons ready for another CVS today, I received a coupon in my inbox for $4 off a $20 purchase. I was super excited about that.
I got all of the items listed above (except the candy bars) and when I got to the register I thought I had a subtotal of over $20 (I think the tea sale tag was wrong on the shelf). Since I didn’t have $20 total, I had to grab something quick that wasn’t too expensive so I grabbed the candy bars. That was totally unexpected and something I didn’t need to purchase. Had I known in advance I would have purchased something more beneficial.
Today I had $14.49 in coupons and I used $8 ECBs from my trip earlier this week. My pretax total was $.39 and I received $5 in ECBs to use later.
Have you had any successful shopping trips this week?
Sometime around 8:45 pm tonight I went into a panic. I remembered that I had about $25 in CVS Extra Care Bucks that were expiring today. I grabbed my purse, today’s P&G insert, and arrived at CVS at 8:55 in hopes that they were closing at 10 pm. Thankfully they were and here at the deals I got tonight.
