CVS: I need to pay close attention to what I buy

Comments Off on CVS: I need to pay close attention to what I buy

Just got back from CVS and bought something I shouldn’t have. I had a coupon for $3 off a Pledge duster thing. It was on sale for $2.99, so I thought, whoopee! But, I grabbed the wrong package. I bought the refill kit for $4.99. My $3 off coupon still worked, but it was no longer free. Oh well, I still think I can use this kit.

Here’s what I bought:

  • Palmolive liquid dish soap $1.49- .25 coupon = $1.24 and got $1 ECB back
  • Crest pro health toothpaste $3.29 – $1 coupon = $2.29 and got $3.29 ECB back
  • Crest pro health rinse $3.29 and got $3.29 back
  • CVS envelopes, 50 count $1.59
  • Pledge duster kit $4.99- $3 coupon = $1.99
  • 3 Musketeer bar .50
  • Total value: $15.15
  • After coupons: $10.90
  • Used $11 ECB
  • Final out of pocket: $0
  • ECB back: $1, $6.58

One more thing…the register tape cut off before my extra care bucks printed. I had to ask her to print it again so that I would get my $7.58 ECB.
