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

I hadn’t planned on any serious CVS shopping this week other than picking up some Colgate toothpaste and Revlon mascara, but as it turns out, the Red Coupon Machine was good to me and to my mother, and I ended up buying more than I expected.  I was somewhat amazed, given how difficult CVS registers have been lately for couponers, that every coupon cleared without a hitch.  Moreover, my having to space out the purchases to abide by daily coupon limits on the St. Ives was serendipitous because the L’Oreal Ever ibotta rebates reset for me today just in time for my final CVS trip of the week.  And my stash of Olay cleanser is running low, so the St. Ives deal was timely for me.  I really like the Green Tea Scrub.  I photographed my mother’s purchases and mine together, but broke down our purchases by card below.  For the subject line of the post, I combined our totals.

  1. Maureen, how in the world did you get all 6 of the St. Ives thru, if the max was 2 identical coupons?

    Thank you very much for your post!

    • Steve Pinski says:

      Check out the dates on the post. She shopped over three days. That’s why she didn’t do a post until Tuesday.

    • Maureen says:

      I explained in the write-up that I shopped over three days because of the St. Ives limits. I did not used all six at once. I used two on Sunday, two on Monday, and two on Tuesday.
