CVS Weekly Run: Spent $3.56. Saved $27.18. Earned $6 ECB For Next Week


This week, I had a light haul at CVS. Here’s how I did it:

Theraflu or Triaminic – $4.99

  • Get $3.00 ECB wyb 2 (limit 1)
  • Used: $3/2 Theraflu Product, exp. 12/3/11 (SS 09/25/11)
  • So I spent $10 minus the $3 off coupon = $7 -$3 ECB = $4 (which means I bought each of them for $2)

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste – $3.49

  • Get $1.50 ECB (limit 2)
  • Used: $1/1 Colgate Optic White Toothpaste, exp. 12/31/11 (ALL YOU Nov ’11)
  • Used: $1/1 Colgate Optic White Toothpaste, exp. 11/30/11 (ALL YOU Oct ’11)
  • So I spent $6.98 – $2 in coupons = $4.98 -$3 ECB (cause I bought 2)=$1.98 for 2 (which means I bought each of them for less than a $1)

Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce – $0.88

  • $1/2 Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce coupon (NLA)
  • $0.38 each after coupon
  • ****NOTE**** – the cashier told me that she might not be taking this coupon much longer. Something about it printing wrong from the Internet. But she honored it for me.

I used $10 in ECB from last week to bring my total down to….


Just $3.56!!!! I saved $27.18 according to my receipt.


And earned $6 ECB for next week!!
