Wow, this sure was an interesting CVS trip. I went at midnight to be sure to get everything, and Brian was kind enough to come help me since there was so much to buy. I ended up doing 5 separate purchases so that we did not have to spend a lot out of pocket. But then, because of some ECBs not printing out like they should have, and then picking up the wrong kind of one of the items. my order of purchasing got totally messed up, so we ended up with a lot out of pocket and some cash on CVS giftcards now. Here's what I got:
  • 5 Listerine antiseptic (16.9 oz): free
  • 2 Sally Hansen Lacquer Shine nail polish: $3 profit
  • 5 Arm & Hammer Essentials multi-surface cleaner and/or degreaser starter kit: $2 profit
  • 2 L’Oréal HIP Metallic eye shadow duos: $3 profit
  • 2 ThermaCare neck to arm heatwrap 1 ct: $2 profit
  • 5 Right Guard Professional Strength solid 1.8 oz or aerosol deodorant 6 oz: free
  • 1 Zipfizz energy mix 3 ct: free
  • 1 Excedrin Express Gels 20 ct: $3 profit
  • 1 Alteril sleep aid 30 ct: free
  • 1 Halls Naturals 25 ct: free
  • 1 EAS AdvantEdge bar 2.11 oz: free
  • 1 Zantac 150 8 ct: $1 profit
  • 1 EAS AdvantEdge shake 4 pk: free
  • 1 Benefiber drink mix 16 ct: $2 profit
  • 1 Iceland Health joint relief 60 ct: free
  • 1 Slimquick 2 pk: free
  • 5 Sleepinal 32 ct: free
  • 2 Crest Pro-Health toothpaste: free
  • 2 Newspapers
That adds up to a $16 profit (before the newspapers)! I found out when I got home that there were no coupons in the paper today (sad day!), so that money shouldn't have been spent. Looks like I need to check online on blogs to see if the paper is worth getting or not before Sunday. Now, I ended up paying 29.72 out of pocket, but ended up with about $18 on some CVS giftcards, and a ton of ECBs, so I guess that's life. Not every trip ends up working perfectly! Now I know to check my ECBs after every single purchase before I continue onto my next one, and to double check the items to be sure I am buying the correct ones. We're keeping about half of the items and donating the rest to charity. We're making a big trip there tomorrow, and I'm excited about passing on these savings to people in need!
