CVS Trip

My CVS switches over at 6pm on Saturday so I took a trip up there and did my transactions as planned I spent $5.20 out of pocket and saved $55.11. The only ECB that printed was the Complete. Apparently they have a new way of actually printing ECB's when they don't print so I now have 4 $7 Right Guard, 1 $9 Maybelline and 1 $8.99 Complete. I kind of like how the Right Guard printed separately!
Can't wait until Thursday!! *I have read a few forums about the Thanksgiving sale starting tomorrow, the Manager at the store I frequent assured me it starts in Thursday! I surely hope so because I would hate to miss out on the deals.

Wall E and the Coke Deal at CVS

On Sunday I bought 6 12 packs of coke and my receipt said $19.98 applied towards the deal. I was confused the cashier insisted I was wrong but the ad clearly stated 3/$10 and $3.33 each, hmmm....anyway I went back and picked up a water for $1.

I went today and picked up the dvd and blade shaving cream(produces 1 ECB) paid $2.xx on gift card :)

You can find details on the error on the Coke Deal and Duracell Deal here

I now have $31.00 ECB for next week.

Score at Target!!

Thanks to the Glade deal I picked up this Thomas At Action Canyon for $11.xx! I bought 20 Glade Scented Candle Holders for $2.50 each and used 10 Buy One Get One Coupons and 10 $2.00 off one coupons, paid $5.xx out of pocket and got $25.00 back in gift cards. These were done in 5 different transactions.

I also used the $5.00 off coupon from the Target toy catalog!

Since I didn't need as nearly as many Glade's that I purchased I sold 12 for $1.00 each so in actually ended up getting this for FREE!!

CVS is having a really good Battery Deal right now, if you match it with coupons it can be a money maker.
Buy $20.00 worth of Duracell and get $15 ECB's!!
Duracell Batteries 8 pack $5.99 and 16 packs $9.99, it has been reported on that the rechargeable batteries work with the deal as well but I am not sure of the prices or if there is a coupon matchup.

Buy $20.00 worth of Coke Products get $10.00 off Wall E dvd

I would go into detail but this was a difficult week to keep my out of pocket down and I did 6 transaction so that would be alot of info to recall.
