What snow? CVS calls!

That's spite of the Winter Storm Warning, I made sure we got to CVS before the snow started falling. Priorities, you know? :)

This was actually a banner trip - total savings of typo there. I had just under 20 bucks in ECBs from my Black Friday shopping and I finally made the best of CVS's policy to accept ALL manufacturer's coupons - which, I should add, they treat like STORE coupons....meaning you can still stack them with manufacturer coupons for MEGA savings! I wanted to post this tonight since the ECB deals run through tomorrow - so if you can venture out (and have a Walgreens circular handy), you can clean up too!

So here's how it played out:

Transaction #1
3 four-packs of Energizer Max AA batteries
Used Walgreens circular coupon - Energizer batteries for $2.99 each, limit 3
Used 3- $1 off Energizer coupons (11/9 SS and 12/14 SS)

Used $5.97 ECBs

Total OOP: $0.00
Total saved: $17.37

Transaction #2
2 Colgate Total Advanced
Used 2 $1.50 off Colgate Total printable

1 Pantene 25 oz 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner
used $2 off Pantene coupon (12/14 PG)

1 Kodak FunSaver camera
used Walgreens circular coupon Funsaver camera for $3.99

Used $7.99 ECBs

Total OOP: $3.12
Total saved: $20.79
Total ECBs earned: $6

Transaction #3
1 Complete Multipurpose contact solution
used $1 off Complete MPS coupon (10/26 RP)

Used $5.99 EBCs

Total OOP: $2.10
Total saved: $7.99
Total ECBs earned: $8.99

Total saved: $46.15
Total OOP: $5.22
ECBS for next time: $14.99

LOL - I know what you mean about having to get your deals even when the weather is bad! It is so hard to let them pass you by :)

i am still completely amazed at all the money you always seem to save at CVS. do you shop anywhere else that you save that much?

You are my hero! I have been a wimp during the snowstorm and told myself that I would venture out on Monday when things died down. I have printed out your scenarios and have my walgreens flyer handy!
