Shopping on Monday at CVS & Walmart

There was too much cloud cover last night to get a good look at the "star of Bethlehem" last night but here is a photo of our Christmas tree all lit up.......

Hubs and I went down the mountain to hit a few stores yesterday.

I had a couple of ECBs expiring(again!)before the end of the year which I don't want to worry about using so I did a shop at CVS..........

2 x Dove shampoo(lavender!)on sale=$7.00
2 x Tresemmé shampoo(not on sale)=$9.98
2 x Advil PM on sale=$21.98
4 x Oral-B toothbrushes on sale=$15.96

Coupons Used

1 x $3/2 Dove DigitalQ=$3.00
1 x $3/2 Tresemmé DigitalQ=$3.00
2 x $1/1 Advil IPQ=$2.00
1 x $6/4 Crest/Oral-B DigitalQ=$6.00
1 x $1/1 Oral-B toothbrush DigitalQ=$1.00
1 x $3/$12 Hair Care CRT=$3.00
1 x $2/$10 CVS Naproxen CRT=$2.00
1 x $3/$10 Oral Care CRT=$3.00
1 x $1/$6 Manual Toothbrush CRT=$1.00
Coupon Total.....$24.00


I used $30 in ECBs so paid .92¢+.01¢ sales tax=.93¢ OOP

I earned back $12 in new ECBS($2 Dove, $5 Advil, $5 Oral-B).  I earned a $3 Beauty Buck as well because the shampoos put me over $30 spent for my next BBuck, giving me $23 left in ECBs expiring in January.
I also submitted to Ibotta and earned $4 for buying the Advil putting me closer to the Ibotta Bonus.

Then it was off to Walmart to finish an Ibotta Bonus and do some ShopKicks too........

1 x Kellogg's Jumbo Packs=$4.98
3 x Suave Sleek Shampoos/Conditioner=$5.94
1 x Suave Professional Conditioner=$2.98
1 x Nudges Dog treats=$4.98
1 x Poise pads=$4.84
1 x Propel packets=$1.98
1 x Afrin nasal spray=$4.98
1 x Maggi chicken bouillion=$1.38
2 x Hall's cough drops=$3.28
1 x Delsym cough syrup=$9.88

Coupons Used
1 x $1/1 Kellogg's Snack Packs IPQ=$1.00
1 x $2/1 Poise ManuQ=$2.00
1 x $2/1 Afrin ManQ=$2.00
1 x $1/50/2 Hall's ManuQ=$1.50
1 x $4/1 Delsym IPQ=$4.00
Coupon Total.......$11.50

$45.22-$11.50=$33.72+.95¢ sales tax=$34.67

I earned back $10.70 on Ibotta plus reached the $5 Ibotta Bonus.

I submitted the receipt to ShopKick and got 4,150 receipt Kicks for buying the Suave, Afrin, Delsym, Nudge dog treats and Kellogg's Snax box plus a Suave hair bundle bonus plus an additional 75 Kicks for scanning various items and for just walking in the store so 4,225 Kicks total which is equal to $16.90.

$15.70+$16.90=$32.60 back in rebates makes this trip an OOP of  $2.07.

.93¢ CVS + $2.07 Walmart=$3.00 OOP but deduct the $4 Ibotta rebate on the Advil at CVS and now both transactions combined are a $1 moneymaker.


I need 9 more rebates on Ibotta to hit the $3 Sled Bonus so I am off to Weis(PMITA)Markets shortly. ;-)  I'll probably not make it to the last Xmas Bonus there but that's ok.
Then it's time to wrap more gifts and make fudge for gifts for neighbors and my Rite-Aid friends.

What's on your agenda today?



  1. Wow, you are amazing.
    That dealmaking takes more time and effort that I want to spend these days. Thanks for sharing.
    I pick and choose a few deals to save a few bucks so you give me some ideas

  2. No shopping for me but I did make some easy fudge this morning and the 3 grands here all gave it their seal of approval. It’s soft but it is delicious so that’s fine with me.

  3. Its like you are speaking a foreign language to me, but well done.

  4. I braved Kroger for gift cards and candy for the local nieces and nephew. Almond milk was free with Ibotta but nothing else qualified.

    Found gift bags in my bin of Xmas stuff for local present drop offs. Amazon boxes for everyone else so I didn’t have to wrap a single present! This is nice when cats or a dog insist on helping.

  5. The agenda? Shouting and rolling down grass hills
    That, or do some holiday cooking
