CVS 7/5 (Steve) – PROFIT $1.35 on $115.39 of Merchandise (101.2% Saved)

NEVER MISS A HOT DEAL! SUBSCRIBE TO OUR DAILY EMAIL NEWSLETTER!

cvs-070515I had an AWESOME trip to CVS this morning. I received a 25% off regular price items coupon in my email on Thursday, so I decided to put that sucker to good use this morning. My out-of-pocket was very high, but I know that I’ll use those Extra Bucks to do other deals over the coming weeks.

I also received a $5 Beauty Bucks Extra Bucks reward from the Red Coupon Machine this morning. I am including that additional $5 of savings in the final stats for this trip since I didn’t include it in the trip when I earned the award. I used those Extra Bucks to lower my out-of-pocket on Transaction #1. (Note: If you have a Beauty Club ECB, DO NOT use it in a transaction where you are using a percentage off coupon or it will reduce your percentage off coupon value.)

Here’s what I bought, along with the coupons used:

  1. The Gatorade also qualifies for 20 cents from ibotta for any sports drink deal to make it a small money maker.

    • Awesome! Love the newer Ibotta $0.20 rebates for things I actually buy.

    • Unless I don’t have it in my offers, I do not see any sports drink offer. What I do see is an energy drink offer for which gatorade does not qualify (I already scanned the bottles I bought and it said it was not a match).

    • ladybugpam says:

      The propel water qualifies as a sports drink for that rebate, too!

  2. We never received ANY coupons in our Sunday paper today in this area… I was told they weren’t delivered in time for insertion. I hope whoever was late knows how many this affects!

  3. I have always been curious, How do you get the % off coupons almost every week in your email? I haven’t gotten one in months. And when you do get them aren’t they good for 1 transaction? Then you can’t use it again on any other transactions? I get confused cause thats what the store always told me and they always said you can’t use it on any sale item as well. I appreciate any input you can give me on this. Thanks for sharing all your great finds. I love to read them every week.

    • Monica Bragg says:

      I had to get a new card and change email addresses in order to start getting the percent off coupons again. You can only use the coupon on one transaction. There are a ton of items that are in the sale ad but not actually a “sale price”. The coupon will actually work on the items that are regular price but producing an ECB.

      • Thank you for helping, I have wondered about why I no longer get discount emails. I don’t have to get a new card number do I? just a new card? I want all my purchases history to remain.

        • Steve Pinski says:

          Monica’s done for the day, but both she and I only received in-store coupons after getting new cards.

  4. Can anyone confirm if the L’Oreal limit is indeed 1?
    Thanks!
