Today was a great day for us at CVS, even though we spent a significant amount of money, which is very rare for us. Both the roommate and I did a good job of dragging our savings rate down today, but we picked up some things we needed, plus I stumbled on a massive picture frame clearance. Almost every frame in the store was 75% off and Stephanie had a picture frame party! I needed some water (and my Walgreens store was out-of-stock when I went last week), plus I needed a new battery for the scale in my bathroom. So that’s why we spent a little money this week.

Both of us did two transactions each so we could use some Extra Care Bucks to lower our out-of-pocket expense. Here is what we bought, along with the coupons used:

ONE ORAL-B CROSS ACTION POWER TOOTHBRUSH, on sale $5.99 (regular price $7.99)

  1. Great CVS trip, I noticed the picture frame sale a couple of weeks ago and bought one to put a family pic in for mothers day.

    Awe man, those are the refills I needed for my brush last week. I hope they still have them in stock!!!

  3. Thanks Steve, you are always the best. I just noticed that we have lots of BOGO coupons for Razor this week, plus 10 ECB when you spend $30, just want to ask you if they are good enough to buy this week, because all razor at CVS eligible for these BOGO deals are not on sales, and we only get 10ECB out of that? Thank you very much

    • I haven’t price-checked these in-store, but I’m not too optimistic. Because the BOGO is on the razors and you have to buy the cartridges to use the coupon, I think it’s not going to be too good of a deal. I guess it depends if you are brand loyal.

    • hello, i did buy a cartridge: venus embrace 4ct 17.99 and venus razor 12.99, i got a $2 off venus/gillette cartridge that i used up with this transaction, 1 buy 1 cartridge get 1 razor free coupon, and 2 $1 off any venus embrace cartridge refill/razor.. price at the register: 11.49 but got 10ECB. Please note that I also used ECBs to lower OOP and just ended up paying for the tax. :)
