My trip to CVS this week wasn’t too spectacular, but I did pick up a few things that we needed. We were down to our last box of cereal, after routinely having a minimum of 6 boxes on hand at all time for the past 2 years, plus I needed to get a special toothpaste that my dentist recommended. After paying next to nothing for toothpaste for the past few years, having to pay $5.49 for this one was a shock to the system!
Here’s how I did:
(3) Kellogg’s cereal, $2 each (regularly $4.99 each)
Received $1 back in ECBs
$1.33 each after coupon and ECBs
(2) Aleve, $5.99 each (regularly $8.29 each)
Used (2) $2/1
$3.99 after coupons
Colgate Max White, $3 (regularly $3.99 each)
Used $2/1 CVS coupon
$1 after coupon
(2) Cetaphil bar soap, $4.79 each
Received $5 back in ECBs
$2.29 each after ECBs
Tom’s of Maine toothpaste, $5.49
*I also used $6 in ECBs from a previous shopping trip
Total before store card and coupons: $50.41
Total after card and coupons: $21.95
That’s a savings of 56%!
I now have $6 in ECBs to use on my next shopping trip.
