I had a great trip to CVS today! Stephanie’s card received a 30% off regular price items CVS store coupon in her email back on Thursday, so I put it to good use in the second transaction.
The Red Coupon Machine spit out a $5 Beauty Club Extra Bucks which I used in my first transaction, so there’s an extra $5 of savings in addition to what is listed with the individual items below. Those savings are reflected in the final stats for my trip at the bottom of this post.
I also bought some M&M’s on sale for $0.88 for my friendly cashier at my new CVS, so they aren’t pictured. However they are listed in the stats for the trip. I also bought some newspapers in the second transaction with the 30% off coupon, but I don’t list them in the shopping totals. (By the way, these 25-30% off regular price items coupons do apply to newspapers you may purchase in the transaction!)
So…here’s what I bought, along with the coupons used:
TWO ALL LAUNDRY DETERGENT, on sale 2/$6.99 (regular price $7.49)

The $5 of Beauty Club Extra Bucks I received today and used to lower my out-of-pocket in Transaction #1 are reflected in the stats below.

Savings Rate (excluding tax): 101.4%
In case you’re curious. My four newspapers were $1 each ($4 total) minus the 30% off CVS coupon. I paid $2.80 total for them. So if you include them in my totals, I paid $1.16 plus tax for everything pictured (plus the M&M’s and newspapers.)Extreme Couponing Tip: You can usually get two prints of most internet coupons. To find them in the easiest possible way, use our preclipped links that take you right to the coupon. Then come back and click the same link to get your 2nd print. This will save you the time spent searching for the coupon.
