I had a great trip to CVS today! It may not seem that great, but I’ve come to the conclusion that in the past two weeks or so, CVS has decided to cut off this card from the great store coupons because I’ve been saving so much. Because of this, I have decided it’s almost time to “lose” my CVS card again. Stephanie uses Prilosec almost every day, and this week’s deal is very good, so I decided to burn a bunch of my Extra Bucks on it. She also badly needed hair color (her words, not mine), so I picked up a few boxes even though it was a higher price than I like to pay for it.
I had $40 of Extra Bucks on me, plus I got another $5 Beauty Club Extra Bucks that popped out when I scanned my card at the Red Coupon Machine. Because the Beauty Club Extra Bucks were not reflected in the statistics of a previous trip, I have applied them to the final bottom line savings in the stats at the bottom of this post.
I actually did three transactions today, but I’m not going to break them down because the All Detergent deal will confuse people since I didn’t buy them all in the same transaction. Here’s what I bought, along with the coupons used:
