I had no plans on going to CVS but then those Clairol hair printable coupons came out and what a great way to roll Extra Bucks into cash with rebates! Keep in mind that I have a $10 CVS eGift Card from doing a SwagBucks deal a couple of months ago so I can go down to zero Extra Bucks and get back into CVS with my gift card. I also had a $3 Beauty Bucks and a $10 Extra Bucks from the St. Ives deal, last week.
The Clairol hair colors are on sale this week for $6.99 and what is awesome is that I used the $6 off 2 Clairol Nice ‘n Easy or Natural Instincts Hair Color coupon and the $3.50 off Clairol Natural Instincts Hair Color coupon, a $3 Clairol digital coupon came off on my receipt, thereby, paying for my Pace Picante Sauce!!! If I would have known that the digital coupon was going to come off on my receipt, I would gotten a candy bar or another food item to absorb the overage.
Yesterday, I posted about the $4 Money Maker Garnier face mask deal at CVS and I had to go to CVS myself to see if that coupon would come off on my receipt before I posted the deal since I had not seen anything on social media about it.
Initially, my thoughts were to just do the Suave freebie deal to roll my expiring $5 Extra Bucks into $3 in cash via the IB rebate but then I decided to roll all of my Extra Bucks and I won’t have any expiring Extra Bucks until May!
Since, $6 off 2 Covergirl cosmetics coupon had reset on Sunday, I decided to do the Covergirl (buy 2 get $5 ECB) but I totally forgot about the $3 Covergirl printing from the Coupon Center.
However, I had already used the Funyons and the soda as filler items to use my Extra Bucks and I was kinda doing this transaction off the cuff so I was trying to keep my out of pocket as low as possible and due my low OOP, the $1 Suave DQ did not come off on my receipt. The $6 off 2 Covergirl DQ (digital coupon) also came off on my receipt.
The Funyuns was a special request from a couple of weeks ago and they never go on sale and they literally the same price at grocery stores, Walmart and Target.
Oh, before I forget, the Suave hair spray did not qualify for the IB rebate and I used two separate cards to get the Funyuns!
I guess about a month ago, we got a $0.99 Extra Bucks from I think it was gum which came in handy for the $0.99 Reese’s Easter eggs and get back another $0.99 Extra Bucks. I received a $2 off 2 Softsoap body wash CVS coupon so after the coupon and Extra Bucks, I paid $1 each for body wash. I was specifically asked about chocolate cereal and they were $1.99 each.
I also wanted to add that I did look for the PopChips Nutter Puffs while I was in Albertsons but I couldn’t find it but it’s a nice Money Maker if you can find it at you local Albertsons!
The Nissan’s Cup of Noodle deal, CO51 and S* took forever to process receipt. The coffee creamer was in my Albertsons’ account as a freebie!
As I had said on Saturday, I was going to Rite Aid for the FREE Russell Stover candy eggs and I was in and out of the store without any issues.
I then went to Walgreens and I did the Garnier/Colgate Money Maker deal almost as I posted except that I only had (3) $2 Colgate coupons and I used a $1 Colgate digital coupon and I was talking to my brother and I forgot to give the cashier the Walgreens coupons but (2) $1 Garnier Walgreens IVC coupons came off on my receipt that the cash must have scanned from the booklet
I spent $13.88 excluding tax and I got back $20 in points ($7 wyb $20, $8 Colgate and $5 Beauty Club) plus, I submitted for the $5 in Savingstar rebates.
It was then onto CVS for the Softsoap body wash (spend $10 get $5). So, last month, I received a FREE $5 Extra Bucks from doing a CVS survey and I had a 25% off CVS coupon (home mailer) and a $2 off $6 body wash CVS coupon, I paid $2 and change and I got $5 Extra Bucks.
On my second card, I got more Softsoap body wash using a $3 Beauty Bucks + $5 Extra Bucks and I got back $5 Extra Bucks.
All three store transactions were super simple but if I had two three kids still at home my shopping trips would certainly look differently. If I needed body wash for four or five people in my household, I would probably have four or five loyalty cards and that’s the honest truth.
Since I saw that the Ibotta’s Kellogg’s cereal rebates was expiring on Saturday night, I decided to go to an early activation store and to my surprise, the Corn Pop and Frosted Flakes cereal were completely out of stock. 🙁
I picked up the Extra gum and the Physicians Formula eyeliner and I was quickly out of the store!
