My Quick Trip to CVS

I was super excited when Kerri left a comment about the Aveeno Deal at CVS because I was in need of a light facial moisturizer and it gave me an opportunity to roll my Extra Bucks into a $10 Amazon gift card AND get back a $10 Extra Bucks AND knock out a couple of Ibotta rebates (I won’t submit my receipt until tomorrow).

Surprisingly, the online prices for the Aveeno and the store price were the same so my scenario worked as expected.

I submitted my receipt for the $10 Care Club Rebate (limit 3) and just as Kerri said, I received confirmation that my receipt had been accepted with a link to choose a rewards.

I did just like Kerri and selected the Virtual Visa so that I could get a $10 Amazon gift card.

Recently, spending time with my brothers, I know exactly what I will be getting them for Christmas from Amazon!😃

My Trip to CVS (Colgate toothpaste)

I checked the CVS app to see if the Colgate Optic White was in stock and to my surprise, the toothpaste was restocked at my nearest CVS. I quickly jumped into my car at 7 p.m. and drove around the corner to CVS, went inside and grabbed the toothpaste and Lumify eyedrops.

If you have eye redness from allergies or you are tired or you didn’t sleep well, you should get the Lumify eyedrops, they work almost immediately, within 2 minutes, your eyes will look amazing.

However, the Lumify is pricey and I made my own  deal for the Lumify almost out of thin air!

My original CVS account has been sitting without being used for most of this year. However, I do go in and activate the digital coupons and I noticed that I had a FREE $2 Extra Bucks on the account. My son uses the account to buy whatever he buys and there was like $0.11 in Extra Bucks, too. Plus, there was a 35% off any Single Item.

I wrote about the FREE + $2 Money Maker Select Colgate Optic White toothpaste so I did submit my receipt to for the $2 for the toothpaste and so my final price for the Lumify is $5.39 from $15.49!!!!!! I’ll take it!!!


This is how my CVS Trip went with PayPal

I needed something to eat since I had not eaten since yesterday and now, I can think more clearly.

As I had said in my Spend $20 get back $20 PayPal or Venmo Deal, I had used the camera on my phone and it asked me to open my PapPal and I followed the directions and I received confirmation shown above.

PayPal also sent me an email confirming the $20 off $20.

HOWEVER, what I didn’t realize is that you literally spend $20 or more and you get $20 off of your purchase when you go to pay.

When you go to pay, you have to tell the cashier that you are going to pay with PayPal and on the PayPal app, you click “Scan/Pay” on the bottom of the screen, it creates a QR and the cashier is to scan the QR code as your form of payment.

Since I was thinking, I’d get back $20, I purchased a Maybelline mascara, Maybelline Fitme face and Scott paper towels 12ct because I wanted the $2 Maybelline rebates and to finish the Spend $30 get $10 for the Scott/Cottonelle.

My total came to $27.44 and PayPal paid $20 and I paid $7.44 withdrawn from my PayPal card. You click on Recent Activities and it will show you the breakdown and the $20 Special offer used.

PayPal also deposited $10 into my PayPal account for shopping at CVS (YMMV)!

I spent $7.44 out of pocket (I did have a $5/$20 Maybelline coupon that came off on my receipt), I got back $10 ECB for the Scott/Cottonelle and $5 ECB for Maybelline, $4 Ibotta and $10 PayPal.

Keep in mind that I had previously purchased a Scott paper towel and Cottonelle so I just need one more paper product to get back the $10 ECB.

Again, you are supposed to be able to the same on your Venmo account.

On Instagram, it’s being reported that people of buying $20 gift cards (YMMV) and getting back $10 PayPal.


This morning, I went to CVS to pick up the FREE CVS Health 50ct Ibuprofen Tablets or Acetaminophen Caplets 50 ct and I decided to look around for the FREE Health-Ade Booch Pop which sells for $2.89.  Some are also finding the Booch Pop in the aisle that sells the Perrier canned drinks.  In addition, I also had a $0.25 any Item Bonus which covered the CRV and tax so check the Ibotta app for any Item bonus.

If you are in San Diego, I found these items at the North Park CVS, 805 & University.  I have completed the


My Trip to CVS

Yesterday, I’d posted that I’d received FREE $5  and $2 Extra Bucks from CVS and I had to use the $5 by Friday.

A reader, Cheryl, left a comment that CVS has the Beyond Meatballs on BOGO50% sale and there’s a $7.99/2 Beyond Meatballs, any variety, any size, Ibotta rebate offer.

The price of the Beyond Meatballs is regularly $7.99 and half off was $3.99.

I decided to kill 2 birds with 1 stone by combining Shopkicks and grabbing the FREE Twix Bar.  I remembered to open the Shopkicks app while I was in store and got 10 points. I scanned the Beyond Meat Burgers for another 50 points but I forgot to scan the Twix for 25 points because I wasn’t minding my own business when the cashier next to self checkout told a customer that she had the wrong card for the Extra Bucks she was trying to use! 🤣 Anyways, when it was all said and done, I received back $0.94 for the Twix bar.

Also, I had a $3 off $12 Frozen Foods digital coupon come off my receipt, the FREE $5 Extra Bucks and I accidentally used the $3 BEAUTY Bucks instead of the expiring FREE $2 Extra Bucks … this is what happens when you don’t mind your own business because my out of pocket was $2 (I also accidentally pressed “yes” rounding up for some kind of donation which cost me $0.14!

Anyways, I am very happy with my CVS trip!
