My Trip to CVS & Albertsons

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!


My Trip to Rite Aid, Walgreens and CVS🤣

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.


My Trip to CVS

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!



My Trip to CVS

I had a $6 Beauty Bucks that was supposed to expire on Thursday and I came up with a quick scenario on the fly that turned into a little Money Maker!

(2) Garnier SkinActive facial masks $6.18
Schwartzkopt Gliss conditioner (black bottle) $6.79

= $12.97

-$5 off 2 Garnier facial care CVS coupon (reduced to $3.32)
-$2 off Gliss coupon
-$6 ECB

= $1.65

Got Back $5 ECB
Earned $3 Beauty Bucks
Earned $5 Savingstar

***The Schwartzkopf conditioner in the black bottle only usually counts for both the hair care and the hair color.


My Trip to Ralphs & CVS

I stopped by Ralphs to pick up my freebies – pop corn, yogurt and the Stretch Island Fruit Strips but the FREE Epic Protein Bar must not be in store, yet, because this particular Ralphs always put the Friday Freebies in front of each cash register so customers can easily grab them.

The CVS is in the same strip mall, and I want to say on Friday or Saturday, I received a 30% off CVS coupon in my mail box and so the Covergirl eye pencil and the Tostitos salsa was a better deal with the 30% coupon.  I grabbed the Coke because it was kinda hot in San Diego on Sunday.

I love this transaction because I was able to roll Extra Bucks into cash and I paid just $0.83 for the soda! If the cashier would have entered the full value of the B1G1 Free coupon, it would have all been FREE but it’s all good.

(2) Covergirl eye pencils $13.58
(2) Tostitos salsa $6.98
Diet Coke $2.04 (incl CRV)

= $22.60

-$3/2 Covergirl SS 1/28
-$1 coupon (I think it’s a Load2Card Q)
-$4 B1G1 Tostitos dip coupon
-$9 in Extra Bucks
-$6.77 CVS 30% off coupon

= $2.83

Got Back $5 Extra Bucks
Got Back (2) $2 Covergirl Checkout 51 rebates
Earned $2 Covergirl Savingstar rebate
