cvs-1023I still haven’t resolved my printer issues, but one of our readers, Maureen, shared her CVS trip with me again today. I really enjoy reading about her trips, so I think we’re going to keep her around 😉

Her Kellogg’s deal will be tough to replicate, since she had some unique peelie coupons from products she bought previously. However, I have a Kellogg’s scenario with some other coupons here and it’s a pretty decent deal. Here’s what she bought, along with the coupons used…

TWO COLGATE MAX FRESH TOOTHPASTE 6 OZ, on sale $2.99 (reg. $3.99)
Get $2 Extra Bucks for buying one Colgate Max Toothpaste 6 oz (limit 2)
Get $0.10 cashback from MobiSave for buying ANY Toothpaste
Used one $2/2 Colgate Toothpaste CVS store coupon, received at the Red Coupon Machine recently (by some folks)
and used two $0.50/1 Colgate Toothpaste coupons, 10/16 SS insert
Price at Register: $2.98, but received $4 Extra Bucks and $0.10 from MobiSave

ONE PERSIL LAUNDRY DETERGENT 40 OZ, on sale $4.34 (reg. $8.49)
Get $1 cashback from SavingStar for buying Persil Laundry Detergent (new offer today)
Get $1 cashback from SavingStar for buying Persil Laundry Detergent (old offer that is no longer available to activate but expires 10/23; should double dip with the first offer)
Get $0.10 cashback from MobiSave for buying ANY Laundry Detergent
Used one $1/1 Persil Laundry Detergent coupon, 10/23 RP insert or 9/25 RP insert (exp 10/23)
Price at Register: $3.34, but will (probably) receive a total of $2.10 cashback
NET PRICE: $1.24!

THREE SPECIAL K CEREALS 12.4 OZ, on sale $2.49 (reg. $4.59)
THREE SPECIAL K NOURISH CEREALS 14 OZ, on sale $2.49 (reg. $4.29)
Get $5 cashback from SavingStar for buying $30 of Kellogg’s/Keebler products (this purchase completed her $5 award; since this was roughly half what she needed to get the award, we are going to count this purchase as earning $2.50 of this $5 SavingStar award)
Used three BOGO Buy Special K Cereal 10.3 oz, Get Special K Nourish Cereal FREE peelie manufacturer’s coupons she had from previous Special K purchases
Price at Register: $7.47, but received $5 Extra Bucks plus she earned half the SavingStar award with this purchase, so we’ll call that $2.50 more
***She already used her $0.50/2 Kellogg’s Cereal MobiSave offer, so she couldn’t use it here. However, if you buy the Kellogg’s Cereal you should redeem that offer. Also, some folks may have a $0.25/1 ANY Cereal 12 oz or larger Ibotta offer too.

There are a lot of other great deals this week, including cheap tampons, moneymaker Tic Tacs, moneymaker Zantac/Vitamin C, cheap Speed Stick Gear and more. See the full list of great CVS deals this week here.

      Glad you love the site! I’m surprised you started with Walgreens. That store is much trickier than CVS. If you can handle Walgreens, you’re ready to handle almost anything! 😉
