Last week the coupon printer at CVS printed out a $20 off a $100 purchase coupon. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to use it, but I made it work today. I would have done better if my CVS carried Pace salsa since I have some free item coupons, but they don't, so here's what I got:
  • 2 Sure aerosols, $2.50 each with two $1 newspaper coupons and $2 ECBs = $1
  • 5 Garnier Fructis products, $3.33 each with five $1 newspaper coupons and $5 ECBs = $6.67
  • 2 Airwick Mini Freshmatics, $4.99 each with two $4 internet coupons = $2
  • 1 Gillette Venus Breeze, $7.99 with a $1 coupon and $4 ECBs = $3
  • 2 Colgate Sensitive toothpastes, $3.99 with one $1 internet coupon and one $.75 newspaper coupon and $3.99 ECBs each = profit of $1.75
  • 1 Colgate Visible Whitening toothpaste, $3.99 with one $1 internet coupon and $2 ECBs = $1
  • 1 Softsoap body wash, $4.99 with one $1.50 mailing coupon and $4.99 ECBs = profit of $1.50
  • 1 Accu-Chek blood glucose monitor, $9.99 with $9.99 ECBs = free
  • 3 Nivea for Men products, $16.97 with $5 ECBs = $11.97
  • 2 Dove conditioners, $4.99 each, B1G1F, with two $1.50 newspaper coupons = $2
  • 4 Sobe LifeWater drinks, $1.59 each, B1G1F, with two B1G1F internet coupons = free
  • 1 2-liter Dr. Pepper, $1.99 with one free item coupon up to $1.59 = $0.40
  • One $20 off a $100 purchase CVS coupon
Net cost: $9.86. :) Yay! Some of this will be kept, some will be donated to charity, and some sold on eBay. I did spend almost $40 out of pocket, but since the net was so low, I don't mind. Now I have a bunch of ECBs to get stuff with for the next month, so my out of pocket will be low for a while to make up for it.

YTD OOP: $131.80
YTD Savings: $846.52 ($1175.09 if you include sale prices, as of 4/5)
YTD eBay sales: $42.21

  • What kind of things do you sell on ebay that you buy at CVS?

  • Lydia, I try to sell items that are not liquids or air-compressed, like razors, toothpaste, medicine, etc, since I don’t know the rules for shipping liquids and air-compressed items. Out of this week’s purchase, I haven’t checked the Airwick items to see if they can be shipped, but hopefully those, the razor, and the toothpastes. You can look around on eBay to see what sells well; so far, razors have been my best sellers!
