My Quick Trip to CVS and Rite Aid


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.


My Quick Trip to CVS

Since I only needed $12 and change to complete the $15/$50 P&G Savingstar rebate, I decided to follow Tammy’s Trip to CVS scenario.

However, I wasn’t as lucky as Tammy in that only (1) $2 Crest digital came off on my receipt and I actually had a (2) $3/$12 Oral Care CVS coupons but only (1) came off on my receipt.  Plus, I forgot to bring my Extra Bucks with me so I paid out of pocket.  But my out of pocket was from my PayPal card so I basically rolled money from Ibotta and Savingstar to pay for the deal.

My Walgreens trip was  a $5 Money Maker – $19.95 + tax out of pocket and I got back 13,000 ($13) points and a $10 RR and I’m waiting for my $5 RR from the catalina folks .

My CVS trip is basically FREE (before tax) after the $7 ECB and I get back $15 from Savingstar.

The Walgreens trip + the CVS trip is a $20 Money Maker before tax.

I did this today at CVS. Check your CVS account- lots of crest DQ’s. Load them all because some came off that were very unexpected!

Subtotal $3.47+tax get $7EB

Also, keep in mind that this transaction counts towards the ✅$15/$50 Pantene, Herbal Essences, Head & Shoulders, Aussie, Ivory, Safeguard, Olay, Secret, Always Discreet, Old Spice, Crest, Oral-B, Pampers, Gillette, Venus, Tampax, and Always(excludes trial/travel size) Savingstar rebate (exp 12/31).

I recommend that you use the CVS app to clip your digital coupons quickly. You can do a quick search for “Crest” and “Oral-B” and clip the coupons.

Thanks, Tammy!


My Trip to CVS

This should have been a non-problematic transaction and it was for the most part but the Clairol hair color rang up at the regular price of $8.49 but the sales says that the Clairol is on sale for 2/$15 OR $7.99 each so after the $2 coupon and$2.50 Ibotta rebate and I’ll get back a $3 Beauty Buck because I was only a couple bucks aways so I end up paying like $0.99 which is a little rich for my blood.

The Garnier Fructis is on sale 2/$7 get $2 ECB.  I used the $3/2 Garnier RMN 9/8 and the $1 Garnier Fructis digital coupon came off on my receipt and I’ll earned $1 Savingstar rebate so FREE shampoo and conditioner.

Earlier, this morning, I wrote about the Starbucks Plus K-Cups deal for $1.34 and I had already accumulated previous points so I was able to request a $5 egift card from ShopKicks!

Make sure that you are signed up for the CVS Beauty Club because the hair care purchased counted towards the beauty club.



My Quick Trip to CVS

After I posted about the Allegra deal and then I did the deal, I now wished that I had did the deal on both cards but now that I’m retired, I am more apprehensive about doing deals that require a high out of pocket.  If this deal was available today, I would have done the deal again but since it was only good for yesterday, I opted to do the deal just once.

This really my bust because it’s something that I actually use every single day.  I am running around acting like I have no money and I made a bad decision in not buying on both of my cards.

I have already received the $10 PayPal for the Rise to the Challenge rebate.

I’ve also received credit for the Checkout 51 rebates!

Finally, I also received $1.14 for using Ibotta Pay.
