It’s hard to believe it, but yes I did spend over $9 (plus tax) at CVS today. When the Banana Boat coupon value was $2 in my paper, I decided to stock up for the upcoming pool season. I also spent a little bit more on the Hallmark deal because I wanted to include my mom’s birthday and Mother’s Day cards, and the $1.49 cards just weren’t cutting it.
I also did not have either of the regional Physician’s Formula coupons, and I was planning to pick up the Suavitel but didn’t have that coupon either. I also couldn’t find the Dream Water at my store. Needless to say, I had to make a few last minute adjustments.
Note: The Physician’s Formula Concealer did not automatically print the Extra Care Bucks. I showed the cashier the ad and he forced it to print.
Anyways, here’s what I bought and the coupons used:
THREE HALLMARK CARDS, regular price $1.49, $2.79 & $2.79
