A couple of weeks ago, a reader mentioned how we used to get FREE printer paper at Staples during the Back to School sales and Staples nor any of the other office supplies stores have not had those great printer paper deals in at least 4 years. I hadn’t been pressed for printer paper because my old boss let us take printer paper home from the office because we also worked from home.
However, I haven’t worked in a year and a half and I’m on my last ream of paper. We don’t print nearly the amount of coupons as we once did but we still need printer paper for when a truly awesome coupon becomes available to print.
I had the $5 expired Extra Bucks and the $10 Carepass and a $1 Quarterly Extra Bucks and it was enough for me to get 2 reams of printer paper.
Ordinarily, I would not think to buy printer paper for $8.99 each but I still have $6 in Extra Bucks and two or three $10 CVS Cash Cards so why not lessen my out of pocket?
I went to CVS to roll a $10 Extra Bucks that was expiring and I found the Christmas items were 75% off. Most of the Christmas stuff was picked over but I did find the Yankee Candle in the scent Balsam & Cedar gift set which was originally $29.99 but on clearance $7.50. One of my friends loves candles so I will giving her the candle set in December. Yes, I used my Extra Bucks to purchase my first Christmas gift for 2020! 🙂
I stopped by Ralphs to pick up the FREE Fage TruBlend yogurt (thanks Tammy for letting us know the DQ works), FREE Love Good Fats Bar and FREE No Cow Bar.
I absolutely loved the taste and texture of the Love Good Fats bar and after a little research, I found out that the Love Good Fats bars are Plant Based Bars (Vegan, Keto Friendly Food, Low Carb Snack, Low Net Carbs, Low Sugar, Gluten Free, Non GMO). Hopefully, they will us another opportunity to try other flavors for FREE. 🙂
My plan was to follow the Crest Toothpaste & Mouthwash Money Maker post but I’d sent to card a $3 Beauty Bucks so I also bought a bag of Doritos chips on sale for $2.99 which you won’t see on my receipt.
- All of the coupons used are digital and sent to my card.
- The CVS store was completely out of the $4.79 Crest mouthwash.
I ended up paying $0.60 for (4) toothpaste and I got back $6 ECB and I suspect that I would have had the (2) mouthwash, the $5 off 3 Crest digital coupon would have come off on my receipt, too.
I was able to use my $3 Beauty Bucks and get back $6 ECB so I’m real happy with this transaction!
Nick had an awesome trip to CVS picking up FREE Dial body washes!!! Make sure to check your CVS account for $3 off Dial body wash because I want to say that like last week, my account had (4) $3 off Dial body wash coupons but I do have the $3 Personal Cleaning coupon.
Below is what Nick has to say:
I stopped by a CVS last night to scan my card and print coupons. I had intended to get this offer. Instead, I got 4 free body washes! Apparently the Dial is on sale at 2/$7 but there are separate $3 off for the coconut water, spring water and Himalayan salt. Plus, several of the Old Spice are on clearance for 25% off (used another $3 off). Do all of these plus use a $3/10 personal cleaning coupon which also applied. Total was about 34c plus tax! You won’t even need to use any of your ExtraCare earnings from last week’s Black Friday.
I had $8 in Extra Bucks that was expiring on Sunday and I decided to buy the Blue Diamond Almonds and the Kevita drink but then I remembered that you got to use cash for the Kevita so I ended up getting the Conair comb.
The cashier didn’t know how to deal with my transaction because what I didn’t know is the $1 Blue Diamond Almond digital coupon had come off of my receipt so the register was kicking out my $5 Extra Bucks so the cashier rang up the almonds separately and the register reduced my $3 Extra Bucks to $2.50 and I got the almonds for free.
The Conair comb was for $4.99 and my $5 Extra Bucks was reduced to $4.99 so I just paid tax.
I stopped by Rite Aid and paid cash for the Kevita drink and when I scanned my receipt is when I realized that there is something going on with Fetch Rewards.
