This is why I love CVS! This was another great week. I got:

1 Loreal Advanced Anti-Wrinkle, originally 16.69, on sale for 11.99 with 11.99 ECBs, plus $1 coupon = profit of $1
2 Listerine Mouthwash, originally 5.89, on sale for 3.99 with 3 ECBs, plus one $1 coupon each = free
1 Garnier Fructis shampoo, originally 3.99, on sale for 2.99 with 2 ECBs, plus one $1 coupon = free
3 Crest Pro-Health Whitening toothpastes, originally 3.89, on sale for 3.49 with 3.49 ECBs, plus one $0.75 coupon each = profit of $2.25
1 St. Ives body wash, originally 3.99, with 3 ECBs, plus one $1 CVS coupon = free
1 Smart Water, originally 1.79, on sale for 1.59 with 1.59 EBCs = free
3 Nova Max Blood Glucose Monitors, originally 59.99, on sale for 9.99 with 9.99 ECBs = free
3 12-packs of Diet Mountain Dew, on sale for 3 for $10 with $2 ECBs = 3 for $8
1 Austin-American Statesman

I paid about $31 out of pocket and ended the day with $26 in ECBs, so I only ended up paying about $5 for the sodas and newspaper. I also just got a coupon by email for CVS next week, so I'm gonna make more money then too!

Randalls this weekend had Quaker Oatmeal boxes on sale for $1.57, and I had a bunch of $1 coupons, which made each box of 8 packets only cost $0.57. Not bad for 8 breakfasts! I was disappointed, though, because I found 5 more coupons and could have gotten even more. Keep an eye out for their Sat/Sun only sales; they have had a lot of great stuff recently, even if you don't have any coupons.

  • Are the coupons you use CVS-specific or just manufacturers coupons? If they ARE from CVS, how do you get on the mailing list to get their weekly ad? One more question…do the ECBs have to be used on specific products, or are they good for anything? This whole CVS having good deals thing is new to me. ;)

  • A few are from CVS (not any this week), but most are from the Sunday paper and from the internet. (I buy 2 Sunday papers every week; there are some people who buy up to 10!) When you get an ExtraCard card, you can register it online and get emailed coupons that way. Everyone gets different coupons at different times, though, so it’s kind of hit-or-miss with those. The ECBs can be used on anything (excluding things like prescriptions, alcohol, etc) in the store. It’s a lot of fun, so let me know if you have any other questions! I plan out what I am going to buy before I go every week, and I use the BeCentsAble webpage along with others to dig up the deals ahead of time. Have fun!
