Slow week at CVS. Here's what I got:
  • 2 Gillette Shampoos, 4.99 each with 2 $2 newspaper coupons and $3 ECBs each = free
  • 2 Almay cosmetics, 7.49 each with two $1 newspaper coupons, one $2 CVS coupon, and $5 ECBs = 5.98
  • 3 Benefiber chew tablets totaling 24.67 with three $2 newspaper coupons, one CVS $3 coupon, and $10 ECBs = 5.67
  • 2 Mentos gum packets, 1.69 each, B1G1F with two $1 coupons = $0.30 profit
  • 2 newspapers
Not a money-making week, and I spent more than I wanted. The Almay ECB was for spending $10, and that was as close as I could get and still get items I would use. The Benefiber was the same; I thought I could get three small ones that would add up to $20 to get the ECBs, but at $6.49 each, three doesn't make $20! Isn't it nice that they make you buy more to get the ECBs? I still got all of it since we'll use it, but it's frustrating. Hopefully I'll get back to making a profit again soon!
