CVS 7/5 (Wayland) – $5.55 PROFIT!! on $42.77 worth of merchandise (113% Savings)


cvs 7-5-15So, while I’ve been super busy with my day job and Super Doubles over at Kmart, I did find time to make a run to CVS yesterday.  When I logged into my account to see what store coupons I had, I found out I had earned another $5 in Beauty Club Extra Bucks!  (I include my Beauty Club ECBs on transactions I redeem them, because I never think to count them on transactions that I earn them on.  And as long as I don’t count them twice, it all comes out in the wash, as they say.)  I also had a random $2 in Extra Bucks on my account.  I have no idea where they came from, but since I didn’t “earn” them, I counted them as additional savings.  I did two transactions, because the random Beauty Club and the random Extra Bucks were not manufacturer funded, which means they would have deducted from the small moneymaker on my Listerine deal and I didn’t want that to happen.

So here’s what I did:

Transaction #1:

So I messed up on this first one.  These liners were in the spot marked $3.99.  I usually check such things at the Red Coupon Machine to make sure I get everything right, but somehow I forgot to on this trip.

  1. Maybe the random $2 extra bucks is from spring spending? I had a random $1 extra buck in my account and that is what I think it is from. ☺

  2. why didnt you do the toothpaste and floss in the same transaction to do the 30% off Toothpaste, Toothbrush or Floss??? just curious

    • Steve Pinski says:

      I think the toothpaste wouldn’t have received the discount. It was a sale item.

  3. wow~. nice trip.!! I had ugly trip–today
    I used two colgate toothpast coupons.
    one worked.other couldnt read..
    the lady(always problem with me) said its copy..thats y barcode couldnt read…….omg… I said it not a copy. I printed beside coupon copy is illegal! but they dont care.look at me like im a stink.
    what should I do….
    thanks for sharing nice trip

    • Monica Bragg says:

      You can show them the barcode in the upper right hand corner and the numbers will be different to prove that they are not a copy.

  4. I did it though.,but I do thanks for ur advice^^

  5. So you can use the Emblem coupon on the popcorn even though it says trail mix, cereal bar, or nuts?
