cvs-shopping-trip-070316I had an AWESOME trip to CVS this evening! There are a lot of great deals and I found a very well-stocked store. I’m wondering if all the couponers were a little too busy BBQ’ing today?

My trip consisted of four different transactions so I could “roll” my Extra Bucks from one transaction to the next. That helped me minimize my out-of-pocket expense. Here’s what I bought, along with the coupons used:

  1. Great trip! I did something similar ๐Ÿ™‚ a bit different as I had some cvs coupons but similar. Thanks for all the great ideas!!!

  2. Tom Collins says:

    I’m curious about the Oreo Cookie deal. If you don’t use the $0.75/2 MQ but opt instead to buy 6 packs of Oreos, and use 2 ips (Buy 2 Get 1 Free), you end up paying $0.67 each ($4 total) before Checkout51. But can’t you submit the 6 items for $7.50 back from Checkout51 (limit 5), thereby ending up with a $3.50 MM?

    • Steve Pinski says:

      Yes, but I already did the deal 3x at Publix. I could only do it 2x at CVS because the limit is five deals.

  3. Sheri Martin says:

    Bummer – Tide Coupon was Regional ๐Ÿ™

  4. I see you bought the Oreo cookies but I was wondering if the Nutter Butter cookies fall under the cash back from Checkout 51? (I’m not the biggest fan of Oreo)

    • Steve Pinski says:

      I am not 100% sure, but I think someone commented on another post that they were.

  5. Wait….I think I meant to say “Does the coupon buy 2 get one free cover the Nutter Butters?” not Checkout 51. Sorry………..

    • Steve Pinski says:

      Oh…I already used my coupons, so I can’t check out the fine print. The actual coupon should be your guide.

  6. Ken from Philly says:

    Just got a $2 off personal care CVS coupon emailer, works with toothpaste/mouthwash/hair products, so I think I can stack with $2/6 mouthwash?

  7. Inspiring! Thanks for all the ideas!

  8. Looks like the Pantene checkout 51 is good. It was there right before I went shopping. As soon as I left I tried to upload my receipt and it says no longer available ๐Ÿ˜ž

  9. Is the 5/1 arnicare still working?
