CVS Week of June 8 - June 14

CVS Week of June 8 – June 14

Let me just say that I pretty much NEVER do this many transactions. My husband took the car to work this week and I can walk to my CVS with my awesome double stroller that I got from a garage sale. So, they just loved to see us coming. We were definitely hot, sweaty messes by the time we got there. But, hey, I saved money at CVS and on gas because I walked. (Okay, a few times I drove.)

Transaction #1:

Brut Deoderant - $3.19
Used $0.55 coupon
Used $1.99 ECB that I had

Total OOP: $0.65
Total ECB’s: $3.00

Transaction #2: Here’s the candy transaction

12 bags of Gold Emblem Candy (CVS Brand): $0.88 a piece = $10.56
Used 3 $1/2 Gold Emblem Candy coupons (although the second and third one beeped, the took them anyway)
Used $3/10 CVS brand coupon
Used my $3.00 ECB from the above transaction

I did these two earlier in the week and went back tonight to do 3 more because I had to pick up a prescription anyway.

*I’m not going to include my prescription because I paid for it with my FSA card.

  1. Just wanted to let you know that the green text is virtually impossible to read unless it's highlighted.

  2. I know, but I was too lazy to change them. I will now because you said so!


I love comments!
