CVS 2/19 (Steve) – $5.45 PROFIT on $90.79 of Merchandise (106.0% Saved!)

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

I had an awesome CVS shopping trip today! I had a 30% off regular priced items CVS store coupon I got in my email last Thursday (2/16), so I focused on the deals that used regular priced items to earn Extra Bucks. Nothing in this trip was “on sale” and my 30% off CVS coupon deducted a total of $27.24! Those savings are reflected in the statistics for this trip.

I also received a $10 Beauty Club Extra Bucks reward from the Red Coupon Machine. NORMALLY, I included these in the savings when I receive them, however I included these $10 Extra Bucks in the last trip that I wrote up because I knew I had earned them. For that reason, these $10 of extra Beauty Club savings ARE NOT included in the statistics for the trip.

However, looking at my receipt for today’s purchases, I can see that I easily surpassed the amount needed to earn $5 more Extra Bucks from the Beauty Club. I am including those savings in the statistics for this trip. Together with the $27.24 that my 30% off coupon deducted, that’s an extra $32.24 of savings that are reflected in the final statistics for this trip beyond what is listed with the individual items below. Those $32.24 of savings turned this nice trip into a pretty decent moneymaker 🙂

  1. Denise Caudill says

    On the cvs shopping trip, was that one transaction or multiple ones?

    • Steve Pinski says

      One big transaction. You only get one shot to use a % off coupon if you get one, so I had to do it all at once. I had a big pile of Extra Bucks before the trip ($38), so I only paid $1.55 plus tax out of pocket.

      • Jerry Carter says

        Assholes like you need to be kicked in the fucking face! You don’t “NEED” all that shit and you’re a pain in the ass for the people that work there and the people waiting in line behind you. Fuck you!

  2. Pam Vasquez says

    Does the full 30% come off when you use ECB’s? The last time I used a 30% off it reduced the amount off by my ECB’s so I didn’t get the full 30%.

    • Steve Pinski says

      There are a few types of Extra Bucks that can reduce the value of a percentage off coupon. You should avoid using Extra Bucks earned from the Beauty Club, the quarterly Extra Bucks bonus that prints once every three months, and any Extra Bucks that the cashier forced to print manually. Regular Extra Bucks don’t reduce the value of the percentage coupon, but those other types I listed will reduce it.

  3. How much was the total oop prior to earned ecbs

    • Steve Pinski says

      I had $38 of ECBs, so I paid $1.55 (plus $4.45 tax which isn’t included in the calculations since sales tax varies by state/county and in some places it is 0%.) $6 total out-of-pocket if you include the tax ($1.55 without the tax) and received $40 ECBs (plus I have another $5 coming from the Beauty Club in a few days.)

  4. Does a percent off coupon get applied to both items if it is buy one get 50% off?

    • Steve Pinski says

      If an item is part of a BOGO 50% off sale, even the full price item is excluded from the percentage discount coupon. It won’t take off anything at all for either item, even the full-price one.
