My CVS Trip

Had a good trip to CVS today. I hadn't been in at least a month, and the cashier knew that (um, is it bad that the cashiers know me??)

And, this is why you should ALWAYS scan your card at the little CVS kiosk scanner, usually located in the front of one of the first aisle. I scanned my card earlier and out popped a $5 off $15 CVS coupon. This coupon can be used along with manufactuer coupons - just make sure you always give the $$ off purchase coupon first!

Also, if you have not done so already, register your Extra Care Card at You will soon start receiving $ off $$ purchase coupons via email. Earlier this week, I received a $5 off $25 coupon. I used both coupons today in separate transactions (you can only use one $$ off purchase coupon per transaction)

Here was my transactions:

3 John Frieda Root Awakening Products $5 each sale
1 Crest Pro-Health for the Gums Toothpaste $3.49
- $5 off $15 CVS Coupon
-(3) $3/1 off John Frieda Root Awakening SS 8/22
-(1) FREE any Crest Pro Health (from previous Crest rebate offer)

= $1.00 OOP
Received: $7.50 ECBs ($5 for John Frieda purchase, $2.50 for Crest)

2nd Transaction:
2 Charmin 16 pack, $9.99 ea
6 Puffs tissue, .99 ea
-$5 off $25 CVS Coupon
-$7.50 ECBs (from 1st transaction)
- (2) .25/1 Charmin P&G 8/1
- (2) .25/3 Puffs P&G 8/1

= $12.42 + tax OOP
Received: $10 ECBs

Total OOP: $13.42+tax AND I have $10 ECBs for my next visit.
Just for giggles, I figured up the normal retail value of the products I purchased today: $63.68, that's a savings of $50.26. And, that's why I coupon!
