CVS Haul 9/29/09

So I am still new to this CVS thing, but I think I am doing pretty fantastic. This is my first significant CVS haul, where I saved about $50 total!

So that is what I got, and here is how I did it:

Transasction 1:
1 vaseline sheer infusion lotion $7.99
- $1.50 sheer infusion coupon
= $6.49 out of pocket, plus $7 in extra care bucks

Transaction 2:
1 bounce dryer bar $4
1 tide stain release $4
3 tide detergents $6
1 dawn dish soap $1 = $27 total
- $5/$25 CVS Coupon
- $1.50 off tide stain release
- $1 off tide stain release (there was a coupon machine right in front of the stain release products)
- $ 1 off dawn soap
- $10 ECB ($3 from last week, $7 from the vaseline transaction)
= $8.50 out of pocket + $10 in Extra Care Bucks

Transaction 3:
1 gilette venus spa breeze razor $9.99
1 lady speed stick $1.99 = $11.98
- $2 off venus spa breeze razor
- $10 ECB from previous transaction
= FREE!!! PLUS $5 in extra care bucks

So I started out this week with $3 in ECBs (extra care bucks) and I now have $5 in ECBs. The key to CVSing is rolling over your ECBs. You always want to make sure you either get back what you originally had, or more. You never want to have less than what you started with! Make sure BEFORE you go, you have all of your coupons organized, make sure you take your time, and don't rush through. I like to go to CVS later at night when not as many people are there. & Don't forget to get a CVS card if you don't already have one!! They are free and will save you a lotttt of money!!
