CVS 9/17 (Maureen) – $12.23 Profit on $84.65 in Merchandise (114.5% Saved)

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

I have not shopped for almost two weeks except for ice and batteries (busy getting ready for Hurricane Irma and then dealing with clean-up after).  I am jumping back in today.  My mother got a $10/$50 CVS store coupon at the end of her receipt, so I put together a shopping trip to use it.  I don’t believe the Schwarzkopf sale is in the ad, but since my mother had a $4/2 CVS Red Machine coupon as well as a BOGO manufacturer’s coupon and I wanted to make sure I had well over $50 in the transaction, I decided to get two bottles.  I was delighted when I scanned the UPC at the Red Machine and saw that it was on sale even though it wasn’t tagged.  When I looked at MyWeeklyAd online, I did see the sale listed.

The $10/$50 order coupon is included in the tally.  I also included $3 Extrabucks she will receive for Beauty Club in a few days since she had $46.06 in qualifying purchases.  Through September 30, Beauty Club members will earn $3 Extrabucks for every $30 spent on qualifying products.  After September 30, CVS will either keep the $3/$30 threshold or go back to the $5/$50 threshold.  It’s the same rate (10% back), but I like earning the Extrabucks sooner with the $3/$30 threshold.

  1. So very happy Maureen, to see you “weathered the storm” !!!
    AWESOME shopping trip.
    I ventured out yesterday, but a lot of my stores still do not have re-stocked shelves. UGH !!

    P.S. – here’s hopping that when Steve gets back from his trip, he finds everything still in tact also :-).

    • Thank you! I was so stressed with the hurricane that it didn’t feel like a break from shopping, which can sometimes feel like a part-time job. I need to hit Publix before Wednesday, but I am really not looking forward to the trip. I’m not stocking up on anything needing refrigeration until we are out of hurricane season.

  2. Why does your mom always get that $10/$50? I never do!

    • She has been getting one pretty much every other week for a couple of months. Never two weeks in a row. Never by email. It prints at the end of her receipt. So if it’s the week when I expect her to get one, I buy something small to see if it prints at the end of the receipt, then I figure out a $50 transaction. Once in a while, she doesn’t get it, but will get it the next week.

      I never get anything by email, snail mail, or receipt. Well, maybe once a year at the end of a receipt for me, but it’s more like a $10/$75.

      • She’s got a lucky card!
        Maybe she should play the lottery on her good week? 🙂

        I am glad you are okay……

      • i tried useing the 10 off 50.00 with other cvs coupons and it denied all my cvs coupons useing the 10 off 50

        • CVS registers make no sense to me. I gave the cashier every coupon I mentioned in my breakdown, and all of them were green on the screen and tracked accurately on my receipt.. No problem whatsoever with the coupons I used.
