My CVS deals (week of 4/13)

Sunday we did all of the CVS shopping for the week. Hubby actually came to see what I was up to and watched the boys. We stopped at the CVS near our house and got JL his own card and I made two transactions. There were a few complications – some ECBs did not print so I had to call corporate about it. I will explain those below.

These are the items that I was able to get at our first trip to CVS last Sunday. I did them in two transactions and spent no money.

CVS Deals - part 1 (4/13)

 Transaction #1:

 The M&M’s were BOGO this week. In addition to this, there was an ECB special for $3 back if you bought  two bags. With the price of $3.29 a bag they would be .15 a bag after the ECBs. Pretty amazing price and good time to stock up for upcoming birthday parties. Unfortunately the ECBs did not print out at the end of the transaction. The cashier told me to call corporate. I then saw the manager who looked at the ECB sign and the BOGO and told me that I should get them. She agreed that one deal does not trump another. She thanked me for not yelling at her and told me to stop back if I did not get the ECBs.

10 Bags of M&M (limit 5 deals)  BOGO $3.29 each = $16.45 without tax  –> $10 used in ECBs and $5 off 15 coupon and then $1.57 from the cash returned from a previous transaction. No new out of pocket.

Again I was owed $15 in ECBs. I called CVS about this on Monday and the woman told me that she would call if there was a problem receiving the money. No call in almost a week, so I should have those ECBs when I go back to CVS after the Passover seders.


Transaction #2

2 Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment $5.69 each

1 Aveeno Diaper rash cream $6.99

Total without tax was $18.37 –> $5 off 15 coupon and then and two Aveeno coupons for $2.50 total. Next I used a $5 ECB which left my total at $5.98. I used the cash still left over from the other day (leaving me with change now) and left.

Later on we were out by another CVS. I told JL that I wanted to go in to see if they had any of the Soft Soap goodies that nobody else has had. They did not of course, but I was able to get a few other things. I had to put money in this time thanks to not having the ECBs from the M&M transaction earlier, but it was well worth it. 

CVS Deals - part 2 (4/13)

Transaction #3

2 CVS Rapid Release Pain Reliever $3.99 each (these are giving $3.99 ECBs for the month and have been hard to find)

1 Aveeno Soothing Relief  Creamy Wash $5.69 (to finish another ECB monthly deal – Spend $25 on Aveeno get $10 ECB)

2 CVS Toddler Wipes for fillers at $1.49 each (needed to get to $10 in CVS products for one coupon and $15 for another)

Total without tax was $16.65 –> $3.00 off coupon when you spend 10 on CVS products and $5 off 15 coupon. My out of pocket was $8.70. In addition to this I received ECBs for $7.98 and $10

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

So even with the goof on the M&M transaction (assuming I do get those $15 printed next time I go in) I only spent $8.70 and received $32.98 in ECBs . . . not too shabby!

    Is the Aveeno stuff any good? I don’t think I can get their products here, but I’m going to have to find creams and bath stuff for NS which can help his dry skin – I noticed he’s got several patches on his back that need daily lathering.

    At which CVS did you find the wild cherry M&Ms?!? I’ve been searching for those EVERYWHERE and haven’t had any luck. Ugh ~ I’m dying to try some!!!
