My 71-cent CVS deal

I'm still working on my CVS shopping skills .... but here's the report on my Sunday shopping trip.

Transaction #1
Bought:

  • 3 Thermacare heat wraps, $6.99 each. (spend $10, get $5 in ECBs)
  • 2 packages store brand chocolate covered peanuts, 99 cents each.
  • 2 11.3 oz Folgers coffees, $4.89 (B1G1F)
    Total before tax: $27.84.
    Coupons:
  • $3 in Thermacare coupons
  • 50 cents for 2 Folgers coupons
  • $1 store coupon for the peanuts
  • $4 off $20 purchase CVS e-mailed coupon.
    Total: $19.34
    Tax: $1.26
    OOP: $20.06, $5 in ECB
    Because the Thermacare is a reimbursed expense under my medical flex plan, OOP is actually zero.

  • 1 Colgate Total, $2.99 (get $2 in ECB)
  • 1 40-ct Band-Aid, $2.99 (get $2 in ECB)

    Total before tax: $7.53.
    Coupons:

  • $1 off Band-Aids
  • $5 in ECBs
    Total: 53 cents
    Tax: 18 cents
    OOP: 71 cents, $4 in ECBs for another trip.
