My Trip to CVS

I love when I can walk out of the store paying just $0.80 including tax and I got back a $10 CVS Cash Card and a $1 Extra Bucks.  The santas are part of the CVS Cash Card deal and both of my brothers are military veterans.  Earlier, this year, I got one of my brothers a military like plaque and so, the other brother gets the military santa.  The second santa is for me!

I don’t mind using all of my Extra Bucks and a previous gift card on things that I want or need.  Plus, I got my Folgers K-Cups on the cheap, it will be my first time trying the Folgers K-Cups. I used the Tide as a filler item to get the $10 CVS Cash.  The Tide is $4.94 and there’s $3 digital coupon.


My Quick Trips to CVS & Walgreens

I am so glad that I used a $3 Extra Bucks on the Fiji water deal since I looked over the CVS weekly ad for next week and for the first time, in the ten years that I have been shopping at CVS, they will not be offering the four day freebies starting the Sunday of Thanksgiving week.  It’s almost as if the three drugstores companies got together and decided against Black Friday deals.  Anyways, the bottled water was $1 each after Extra Bucks and rebates.

I did not see allot of the Kinder Joy eggs and maybe they had more in the back?  This super easy transaction that was free and money maker and a cute stock suffer.

What was very odd on Sunday is that both the Fiji water and the Kinder Joy eggs had blue UPC codes on the products and when I scanned products for the Checkout 51 nor Savingstar could read their UPC bar code.

I didn’t try scanning for Ibotta because by then I had gone to a UPC website and entered the product name “Fiji water 700ml” and bar code appears and I still needed to enlarge the page to get the UPC to scan.  Scanned beautifully for IB and CO51.

The Kinder Joy egg doesn’t have a full UPC number but the Walgreens receipt has the full UPC number which I entered into the UPC website and it came up immediately, I scanned for CO51 and S*, again no problem.

I am literally scanning the UPC code on the screen on the website.

I also use the UPC website when I want to see if a particular product is eligible for a rebate…this is of course for research purposes only.




My Quick Trips to Walgreens & CVS

For whatever reason, on Saturday, I had trouble getting to sleep so when I finally fell asleep, I didn’t wake up until almost 9 a.m.  I then tried figuring out a scenario for the Holiday Cash Card since I had a $8 off $60 CVS coupon but my coupon inserts from the Dollar Tree did not include the Smart Source…grrrrrrr.  My out of pocket would be too high for things I do not need so I end up getting the Thermacare heatwraps which was $7.29 so it ended up being a $2.71 Money Maker.

It was as if it was a full moon instead of a time change because the CVS that I visited, had a young male cashier who rang me up and he did not want to take my coupons and I forgot to look at his name tag so I could complain to management about him!  I had never seen him before so I assume he’s a new employee.  Of course, I snatched those coupons and my Extra Bucks out of his hands and told him to void my transaction, I went to another CVS had no problems with that store.

I then went to Walgreens for my cheap Dixie paper plates.  I want to say my out of pocket was like $0.29 (I don’t my receipt in hand and too lazy to go get it) after using the $1/2 Dixie products RMN 11/4 and $3 in points and I submitted my receipt for the $1 Savingstar rebate.  Walgreens has increased the price of the paper plates because they used to be $3.49 and now, the price is $3.99  but on BOGO FREE sale so they end up being $0.99 each.


My Quick Trip to CVS

This was a super easy transaction.  The 2 liter sodas are free after CO51 and S* rebates.  The Poparazzi nail polish is 2/$5 get $ ECB.  I had $6 in Extra Bucks and came back home with $5 in ECBs and $1.10 in rebates…not a bad trip!


My Trip to CVS

For whatever reason, the cashier could not get the $2 Colgate CVS coupon (printed from the Redbox) to scan and it came up as red on his screen and he’s one of my regular cashiers but he was not willing do push it through as he usually would do so I let it go.  Also, a $1 Garnier digital coupon came off on my receipt.  I still made out like a bandit so I cannot complain.
