This Is Why I Love CVS: Extreme Couponing Works

I love CVS! My CVS bill this week would have been $1.50 for all of these beauty items – but I needed that pill case which ran me $4.29. DAMN YOU PILL CASE FOR RUINING MY TOTAL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL! Either way, there is no better place to bargain hunt than this place.

I love CVS

Ps – when I scanned my card I got $5 ERB from their machine. So that was awesome!

Ok here are my deals. Are you ready for this? I LOVE CVS!

  • Pantene – 2/$6.97 -I had a $3 coupon off PLUS I got $2 ERB
  • Aveeno – Spend $25 and get $10 in ERB. I had a buy 2 get 1 free body wash, and I had a $2 coupon for their sunscreen. Worked out to be $7 out of my pocket for 4 Aveeno items.
  • Kids Crest – $1.99 but you got $1 back. I had a $1 off of 2 coupon. So I ended up getting $2 ERB back for this one

I also received a $5 off $25 coupon in my email this week which I used. After all my coupons, I spent $5.65 AND received $14 in ERB for next week.

If you check the receipt, I saved $52 this week! Want more CVS deals?

    I don’t get it? You mentioned specific coupons but your bill shows a whole lot of other coupons. Are those ECB’s? Do you know a site where I can get store coupon policies? I stumbled across one somewhere and now I can’t recall.

        I also save the coupons each week from the SUnday paper – some are NOT printable. In fact, most are NOT from the computer.

    I love how you got so many aveeno products for under $6. If only I could get my act together to take advantage of deals like this. It always costs me so much more when I need to stock up on aveeno. This comment is for the Queen Anneโ€™s Revenge LEGO Playset Contest.
