Oh Dear CVS

Jessica speaking. . .

Today I was THRILLED. The contact solution I have been keeping my eye on for two weeks finally arrived on CVS' shelf! It's a deal. You pay $8.99 and then get $8.99 back which I can put towards another bottle of solution. And I had 2 $2 off coupons...so it was a money maker however, in my excitement, I didn't do the transaction as best I could and I lost my $2 overage! I will be better prepared next time. BUT that's not the big news. My big news is that I received in addition to my $8.99 in extra bucks after getting my second bottle, a $5 off $15 purchase. This is like GOLD! They expire in 3 days but Mondays are our regular CVS days. This Monday if I buy $20 worth of General Mills cereal, I get $10 back. So...listen to this...

I will pick up 6 cereal boxes (3 for $10)
I'll use my 8.99 bucks earned today.
Then I'll use my $5 off $15 I got today.
Then I'll use my $3.50ish worth of coupons.

After all that is said and done, I will have paid $2 and some change for 6 cereal boxes...it averages to .43 a box!

And to top it off, I will earn $10 in ECBs!

I love CVS!

great deals, Jess. Way to work the system. I have been starting to do the free after rebate stuff at Walgreens lately - you can get some great stuff for free.

Work it girl!! A friend just told me about southersavers.com so I am trying to get my act together and take advantage of the deals out there. I just loaded ecoupons onto my Kroger plus card yesterday and I am hoping to go to CVS this afternoon. Teach me your ways oh wise one! ...Allison
