CVS Week Of 9/4 | Happy Labor Day Weekend! Rolling Extra Bucks

Happy Labor Day Weekend Friends! Hope you are enjoying the weekend with family and friends! I made an attempt to get to the store and get a blog post up today instead of the usual midweek post. Hope this helps you plan your shopping trip this week! There are some good sales going on at CVS and I'll most likely make another trip this week so look for another CVS post this week. So I spent $13.42 OOP (Out Of Pocket) for $74 worth of products (with NO sales price, NO coupons)

CTarget | Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaner, Cascade Trial Packs and Rimmel Eyshadow

My Total OOP was $6.65 for $22.68 worth of products.

CVS Week Of 8/28 | $10 Gas Card

Although you may not be able to copy my idea exactly I wanted to share my scenario so you could see an example to help you put together your own deals and maxamize using those $4/$20, $5/$30, $10/$50 and whatever else combo coupons cvs sends out.

VONS | Cheap Gain Dish Liquid FULL SIZE 24oz and Double Coupon!

This week at Vons Gain Dish Liquid is on sale for $1.99, reg price $2.99 It gets better when you buy 3 you get $3.00 off making them $0.99 each

Target | Schick Intuition Razors, Cascade 4pk Action Pacs and Rolling Gift Cards

Right now at Target there are plenty of $5.00 Gift Card deals when you buy 2 of certain qualified items. Tonight I stopped in to get some razors and dishwasher soap. I had coupons for all 6 items...

CVS Week Of 9/11 | Time to stock up on Household Supplies!


Had a pretty busy weekend but I was able to visit CVS and do a little shopping. Again I might actually make a second visit this week but I gotta take a better look at the ads to see if there is anything else I need to stock up on. This is something I put together quickly so I could use my $5 off $25 coupon (transaction #3) I sent to my CVS card. Did you know CVS emails coupons weekly? If not sign up on CVS.com and you will start receiving them. I've learned that on Tuesdays they will be available on CVS.com once you log into your account and you can print or send them to card. The weird part? CVS doesn't email you until Thursday letting you know the coupon is available. So always check on Tuesdays to see if you got one or not.

Here we go I made 3 transactions as followed:

CVS Week Of 9/4 | Physicians Formula Deal & Mid-Week Visit Rolling Extra Bucks

Great news for those who like Physicians Formula Cosmetics. The current deal advertised in this weeks ad says Spend $10.00 on Physicians Formula and get $7.00 Extra Bucks, Limit 1. It gets better! Sometimes CVS likes to change the limit on things although the ad might say otherwise. Which is what happened. Anytime you shop at CVS and get your receipt, towards the end of it will print out your tally for that weeks current deals. That way you can keep track of what you bought for certain deals and if you have reached your limit or not.
 
See how I have highlighted in red the Phys Form Count.
It states Spend 10 Get 7 EB *Offer Limit Reached $19.98
Are you wondering how I reached my limit if I only spent $19.98 and not $20.00?
 
Here's what makes even better CVS will round up your dollar amount and print your reward for that deal. Earlier this week I purchased a Physicians Formula Mascara reg price $9.99 and used a $1.00/1 MQ (Manufacture Coupon) and it printed my $7.00 EB. When I went back today and purchased the same mascara with another $1.00/1 MQ it printed my $7.00 EB and showed on my receipt that I have reached the offer limit.

This is the case for any deals I have done where you have to purchase a certain amount to get a reward. Most times when you look for items to meet the quota it might be a penny off like the mascara and instead of purchasing that item you look for something that is over $xx amount and end up spending more so you can meet the amount for an EB (ExtraBucks) reward. Same goes for when I was doing the gas card deals this summer and you had to spend $30 to get a $10 gas card. Sometimes my total only came to $29.xx but it still printed my reward.

CVS Week Of 9/4 | Happy Labor Day Weekend! Rolling Extra Bucks


Happy Labor Day Weekend!

This time of year we are usually in Hawai'i enjoying the end of summer relaxing on the beach in Kailua. Unfortunately we probably will not be able to visit until next spring but I'm not complaining just patiently waiting.

So this week at CVS there aren't too many FREEBIES but there are still some really good sales going on. I'll probably make another visit this week since there are a few things I wanted to price check and put another shopping list together. Throughout the week there are many other things I buy from couponing but at times those sales are about to end or it might be a very small purchase so I often don't post those shopping trips. I think I will make an effort to post more of those purchases since I am set up to blog from my phone now.

I made an attempt to have my shopping list and coupons ready last night to be able to head out to the store this morning to get all my shopping done today and have this blog post up by the end of the day.

CVS Week Of 8/28 | $10 Gas Card

Long time no post, well it feels that way. Last week I did not have much time to shop and there weren't any deals on items I needed to stock up on so I stayed indoors out of the valley heat and enjoyed a week off from the stores.

This week I had a late start and didnt get to the store until yesterday (after I had $10 in register rewards and +up rewards expire). I am usually good about not letting rewards expire but it happens. I accepted the fact I lost out on $10 and moved on.

This week there wasn't anything I needed to stock up on this week aside for some Visine but I did have a few $4/1 Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power Razor and they were going to expire. I saw CVS included them on the gas card deal this week (spend $30 and get $10 gas) so this was my deal idea. Although the coupons I used expired there are some $2/1 coupons from last Sundays inserts. In that case it will be $6 more than my deal.

3 Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power Razor $9.99 sale price  $12.99 reg price
MQ 3 - $4/1 Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power Razor PG 7/31 (expired)
or
MQ 3 - $2/1 Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power Razor PG 8/28
Total $29.97 Pay $17.97

2 Visine $4.99 reg price

(Buy 1 Get 1 50% off)
MQ 2 - $2/1 Any Visine Product smartsource.com
Total $9.98 Pay $3.48

Total before coupons and discount $39.95

I printed my $4/$20 coupon from my extracare account on cvs.com Every Tuesday there is usually a new weekly coupon I can print or send to card (I prefer to print).

So anytime I'm using one of those coypons it is the first one I hand over to my cashier. Then I will give them my manufacture coupons and lastly any extra bucks.

Total after coupons $19.95
I had $10 extra bucks

So my total after all discounts, coupons and extra bucks

Total $9.95 OOP (Out Of Pocket)
and I got a $10 gas card.

It's like paying $9.95 for $10 woth of gas and getting $40 worth of products for free!

Although you may not be able to copy my idea exactly I wanted to share my scenario so you could see an example to help you put together your own deals and maxamize using those $4/$20, $5/$30, $10/$50 and whatever else combo coupons cvs sends out.

Have a great shopping week. I'm making an attempt to visit Target this week so I may have one more update this week if that goes well otherwise that's all for now.
