CVS deals – 03/22 thru 03/28

When posting CVS deals, I hope to help others who would also like to become more proficient in CVSing. Until six or so months ago, I had no real idea how much of an impact shopping at CVS could have on a monthly grocery budget! Now I don't remember the last time we paid any real money for toiletries, diapers, etc. A typical receipt from CVS is now "always" under $2.00 after coupons and ECBs – and often under $1.00!

You may want to read earlier posts (and click on links to tutorials in them) if you're new to CVSing. A key to getting a regular discount ($ off $$ purchase coupons) at CVS is to be consistent in how much you "spend" there. And that's not hard to do when you have ECBs you need to keep rolling over.

Today's trip was especially exciting – all of this for only $0.73 out of pocket after coupons and $20 ECBs – with the help of a $5 off $25 purchase CVS coupon. (And another one printed on today's receipt, too!)

Here are the details:

Mott's Applesauce (6-packs) – on sale for $1.25 each
Use $0.55/1 printable coupon
$0.70 each after coupon

Buy three Diet Pepsi 12-packs – on sale 3 for $11, Get $2 ECBs
(Limit 1)
Use B2G1 printable coupon
$1.78 each after coupon and ECBs

Buy 1 Crest Pro-Health Enamel Care at $3.49, Get $3.49 ECBs
(Limit 1)
Use $0.75/1 coupon (3/15 P&G)
FREE plus overage after coupon and ECBs

Buy 1 Dry Idea Clinical Solid or Roll-on at $7.99, Get $5 ECBs
(Limit 2)
Use $2.00/1 printable coupon
$0.99 after coupon and ECBs

The Right Guard deal is similar – but the $2.00/1 coupon for it came printed on the inside flap of an identical item purchased through the Walgreens EasySaver program two weeks ago. (And this box also includes a coupon!)
Note: Walgreens has this same item on sale for $5.99 this week – so use the coupon from this box for some nice overage there!

Thanks to The Frugal Kennedys, I found out about the Lumene coupon. I printed only one due to printer trouble but thankfully was able to find two $2.99 items. But Lumene items are on sale – buy one, get one 50% off, so I got two items for $0.50 after the coupon. (Using two coupons would give some nice overage!)

The Kotex deal came about because I had a $1.50/1 CVS coupon that I stacked with a $1.00/1 manufacturer's coupon (that came with a free sample) – and I was trying to reach $25 so I could use my $5 off $25 coupon!
