For Sonya Ann....CVS Trip!

So last month I went to CVS and got this........

I went back yesterday as it was expiring today to spend it and here is what I got..........

Finding decaffeinated tea bags at a good price is rough here so I jumped on this Spend $9 on Lipton or Hellman's and get $3 in ECB Deal.
After sale price of $3 a box and coupons worth $2.50 total and using my $5 ECB I spent $1.50 OOP and earned a $3 ECB.
**Just updated this to say that I'll get .40¢ of my OOP back as I have a Lipton offer in my SavingStar account, so $1.10 OOP after that rebate.**

Now I had to find a way to use this one!! lolz

The CVS kiosk spit out a $2.50 off Colgate toothpaste coupon and a $1.50 off $5 if you buy nuts coupon.
Now how to use some of this and get something I need/want, use this $3 ECB and keep my OOP lowish.

Before leaving home to go to CVS, I went to the CVS website and printed a few Qs I "might" need and then checked out a CVS Deal website to see what the Kiosk was printing out this week.

I put together a game plan while in the store and bought this stuff.........

1 x GE Abound unsalted cashews=$6.99
1 x GE Abound nut bar=$1.49
1 x Colgate toothpaste on sale=$3.00
3 x AG cards .99¢ea.=$2.97

Coupons Used
1 x $1.50 wyb $5 in GE nuts CVSKioskQ=$1.50
1 x $2/2 GE Abound CVSQ from website=$2.00
1 x $2.50/1 Colgate toothpaste CVSKioskQ=$2.50
1 x .50¢/1 Colgate toothpaste IPQ=.50¢
1 x $2/3 AG Greeting Cards CVSQ=$2.00
1 x $3 ECB from the Lipton tea I just bought=$3.00
Coupon Total........$11.50

$14.45-$11.50=$2.95+.10¢tax=$3.05 OOP

And then, just when I thought I was free of CVS, this spit out on my receipt........

Another $2 ECB!!! ack

Well, at this point I was done with CVS for the day so I put this in my coupon pouch and went home.
I have a month to come back and spend this before it expires.
I just didn't have anything left in my drugstore arsenal.  Now if PA was a place that the CVS stores have liquor you could buy like Sonya Ann's does......

I could have found something to buy EASY! lolz

So I am out $4.55 cash for all these purchases and have a $2 ECB to use.

Oh well......I guess I'll be CVSing another day..........



  1. Not to complain or anything but your CVS posts aren't doing it for me like RA. Please fix this.
    I need to go to CVS today(wish it was RA) I've got $3.75 in bucks and %25 off Q which would be something I could pair to use on hair color. Plus I would get $4 bucks back if I bought 2. I don't know. It just doesn't have the spark that RA does.

  2. I can't fully grasp your couponing and perks map, but well done again.

  3. I have been meaning to tell you about Rite Aid. We own some stock with them and they have been trying to get voting commitments from all the stockholders. They (whoever they are) believe any proxy votes will be used to decline the Walgreen merger. I think voting ended today so the outcome will be interesting

  4. I did the same tea and mayo deal!

  5. Jealous of the tea deal. I love tea!

  6. CVS really wants you to have their ECB. lol...great job!
