My sister and I are planning to go to CVS together this evening. She has $2.00 ECBs and a rain check to cash in – both from her very first bargaining visit!
I promised to come up with some good beginner’s scenarios based on deals I knew of, so here goes:
We’ll start with the rain check:
Nivea Body Wash – $5.99
Get $5.00 ECBs (Limit 1)
$0.99 after ECBs
She’ll pay with $2.00 ECBs and $3.99 (plus tax) out of pocket – and get $5.00 ECBs back.
Since she mentioned needing paper products, we’ll cash in on this deal at the second store:
Cottonelle Double Rolls (20 count) – $12.88
Get $4.00 ECBs (Limit 3)
Use $0.50/1 (SmartSource 12/13)
$8.38 after coupon and ECBs
She’ll pay with $5.00 ECBs and $7.38 out of pocket – and get $4.00 ECBs back. Not bad for the equivalent of 40 rolls of bathroom tissue!
The deals really aren’t all that great this week, so I’ll probably go for two of these:
SoyJoy Box (6-count) – $6.00
Get $6.00 ECBs (Limit 3)
FREE after ECBs
