I braved the frozen tundra to get some deals at Rite Aid and CVS this afternoon. It wasn’t all that bad out, but on my way home from CVS, I slid a little. Eep. I’m staying in for the rest of the day for sure.
At Rite Aid, I was able to get the Electrasol tabs (yay!) so after rebate and my coupon, it’s $0.24.
I bought some Barbasol for .88. It’s a pretty good price, no?
I bought some Maybelline Wet Shine Diamonds lip stuff. When the cashier first scanned it, it rang up at its regular price of $6.79. The store wasn’t busy, so I asked the cashier to come with me and look at the price on the shelf of $1.99. He scanned it a second time and it rang up at $1.99. Hmm. I had a $2 off coupon, so it was free.
I bought two Russell Stover bagged chocolate ($2.50 each; used a BOGO coupon) and I’ll give those to my mom.
Total spent out of pocket: $5.97 (there was .36 in tax).=
Total rebates I’ll get: $2
Final cost $3.97.
If it weren’t for sales, rebates or coupons, I could have paid $15.66 (but I wouldn’t have!).
At CVS, I had $8.97 in extra care bucks that I had to use, or I’d lose them. I bought a few things simply because I’d use them eventually or give them away, and a few others for those reasons and to generate more extra care bucks.
–Crest toothpaste at $2.19 (no coupons, but my parents like this brand so I’ll give it to them) it generated $1 ECB
–Schick Quattro disposable 3-count $5.99, used $4 off coupon in today’s paper, so $1.99 out of pocket and it generated $3 in ECB
-3 bags CVS cough drops (I felt fine in taking 3, since there were a bunch more for other people) at $0.99 per bag, then it generated .99 in ECB each
–CVS tissue (free with store coupon; mine expires today)
–Cottonelle toilet paper 8 double rolls $3.49; used $1 off coupon so $2.49 out of pocket (this is not a good price for toilet paper, but since I needed filler and I don’t have a huge stockpile of TP, I went for it)
–Reese’s 8-pack $1.19 as a yummy filler
Total before coupons: $16.98
– $2 CVS coupon = $14.98
– $1.15 free tissue coupon = $13.83
– $5 manuf. coupons = 8.83
Used a $3.99 ECB and a $4.98 ECB (she had to key in $4.84 on the second one, since I was about .14 under).
Out of pocket = $0
Extra Care Bucks generated for next time: $6.97 from items purchased today, plus an additional $3 ECB as compensation from a survey I took, so total is $9.97.
How’d you do at the drugstores this week?
