Money Monday - CVS

There are not a lot of excellent deals at CVS right now, but I picked up a few things this past weekend.

Transaction #1:

I went in to CVS to scan my card and to see if they had the vitamins in stock yet. They did not, but as I was walking past an isle a 75% off CLEARANCE tag caught my eye. These NexCare products were 75% off AND were a monthly ECB deal! They were each on clearance for $2.50 or $3.00 and each gave $4.00 ECB back! WOO HOO! MAKING MONEY AT CVS WITHOUT COUPONS! I was so excited that I failed to check the boxes to see if there were coupons inside. Lo and behold, there was a $1/1 Nexcare coupon in each box. I was so sad when I got home - I could have made $11 instead of $6! Lol - well, okay - I wasn't that sad. I mean, I did make money on my trip. But you know. :)

Anyway, so that trip was free, since I used ECB to pay. I "paid" $14 and made $20! WHOOP!

Transaction #2:

FINALLY the vitamins were in stock! I got two softsoaps (used $1/1 coupons on each), two bottles of vitamins, and a bottle of thyme (since I am out). I "spent" $15.80 (CVS gift card) and got $15.96 back in ECB. :) A fairly successful trip.

Nice work...the Softsoap matched with a $1.50 off coupon from Sunday's paper made me money this week as well!

zI saw on Money Saving Mom that you are from Indy, too. When I read your profile, it was like reading about myself! LOL

The *only* difference is I am a part-time SAHM&W.

I wonder if I've run into you at CVS or Meijer. LOL I love me some Meijer.

I tried to leave you a comment on your blog, but could not find where to leave one. Maybe I just missed it?

What part of Indy are you from? We live on the east side of town near Wanamaker.

Maybe you're the one who bought all of the Lysol bathroom cleaner so I have to get a rain check! LOL.

Yes, I am going back tonight to use 3 $1.50/1 coupons for 3 more bottles of Softsoap! So excited! :)

I saw your comment on MSM about the Kroger ad. I live a little farther south in Indiana. We have a Jay C which is a Kroger store. Their ad has the 10 item Mega event that starts on Thursday. I'm planning on getting some good deals. Hope it works for you to!

I have NO idea why you can't leave a comment. I just set up that blog last week.

And no, it wasn't me who took all the Lysol. LOL I'm in Brownsburg so I shop at the Meijer off of Lafayette Rd. I made "friends" with two of the self-scan cashiers there so I'm not going to another Meijer. LOL

Maybe Susan took it. LOL
