You guys, I had SO MUCH FUN CVSing yesterday! It was pretty much just like OLD times! Wheeee! To start out with, I had 6 ECBs left over from last week’s deals. THEN when I scanned my Extra Care card at the Magic Coupon Machine, out popped my $5 ECB for spending $50 with the CVS Beauty Club! That’s my 2nd reward since I started shopping drugstore makeup about 2 weeks ago. And of course I haven’t actually SPENT very much to get up to that $50 total, since the total is BEFORE coupons and ECBs. WHEEE!! Here’s what I got yesterday. I was SO excited!
First I went for some great freebies to build up some more Extra Care Bucks!
Two Colgate toothpaste $2.99 each = $5.98
Two Coppertone Sport suncscreen, 2/$19.98
One Crest mouthwash $4.99
Total = $30.95
Coupons I used:
-$5/$30 purchase CVS email coupon (woot!!)
-$2/2 Colgate printable from coupons.com
-$1.10 off Crest mouthwash from coupons.com
-$5/2 Coppertone from today’s Smart Source insert
- 11 Extra Care bucks I had from previous purchase + Beauty Club Rewards
Total = $6.85 + tax = 8.32
Got back 4 ECB for the Colgate, 8 ECB for the Coppertone, and 4 for the Crest = 16 ECB!
With which I did this next transaction. I cannot pass up a chance to stock up on diapers for cheap!
3 Huggies jumbo packs $9.49 each = $28.47
Wet ‘n Wild blush $2.99
Wet ‘n Wild Megalast lip color (which I hated by the way – DO NOT BUY!) $2.99
= $11.45 + tax = $14.08 and I got back 14 ECB – 12 for the Huggies/Desitin (baby care deal) and 2 for the Wet ‘n Wild. It was a cheap makeup deal that I couldn’t resist but like I said, I hate the lip color. I have tried some lipsticks from Wet ‘n Wild that I like but that one I cannot recommend. It made my lips feel so dry I thought they would crack and break off my face. Blecch.
But anway!! I got 14 ECB! And this time the Magic Coupon machine spit me out a coupon for $1 off any $1.99 Wet ‘n Wild purchase – even though I had just made one, I decided to spend that real quick, and get another Crest mouthwash because the limit was 2 on that deal and I had another coupon. So I got:
Crest mouthwash $4.99
Wet ‘n Wild lip gloss $1.99 (haven’t tried it yet but I am sure it will be fine as it’s not the same kind as the other.)
total = $6.98
coupons I used:
-$1 CVS coupon for Wet ‘n Wild
-$1.10 Crest mouthwash coupon from coupons.com
total = $2.88 tax = $3.37 and I got back 4 ECB for the Crest. And of course, all that Wet ‘n Wild racked me up some more earnings towards my next CVS Beauty Club reward!
So, I started the day with 11 ECB, spent a total of $25.77 for all that stuff, and ended the day with 16 ECB left to spend! I think that’s pretty darn good…especially when I would have paid more than that for just the three packs of diapers alone without coupons and Extra Care Bucks!
WEEE HOO, that’s what I got this week! What are you getting at the drugstores?
