CVS: My Shopping Trips

This is a great week for couponing at CVS especially since the coupon center is spitting out some good coupons that you can stack with manufacture coupons to make for even bigger savings, so be sure to scan your card at the coupon center and keep scanning until it prints everything, you might get some great surprises like a $15/1 off Physician's Formula which I plan on using tomorrow!

Anywho, I had a great mini-session at CVS on my lunch break today and scored the following...

4 -  OneTouch Ultra Mini Blood Meters - sale $10 each
2 - Lady Speed Stick - 2/$5
2 - Colgate toothpastes - $2.99 each
1 - Cottenelle Roll Cover - $1.99
Total = $52.97
Used 4-$10/1 OneTouch Ultra Mini Blood Meters MQ
Used 1-Speed Stick - Buy One Get One Free MQ
Used 2-$1/1 Colgate MQ
Used 2-$1/1 Any toothpaste CVS coupon
Used 2-$1/1 Any deodorant CVS coupon
Used $4.98 ECBs from last week
Paid $1.55 and received $6.97 in ECB for Colgate and Cottenelle



After that, I had an even better trip this evening and I am still impressed at the savings and this just reinforced to me how much I just love couponing and could never revert back to not using them! So, here's my 2nd shopping trip...

  2. How did the 25% off coupon take off $20? Almost everything that you bought was a sale item and those coupons don't take anything off of sale items.

  3. I image if you take off the 25% 1st then use the remaining Qs it would work.
