My Trip to CVS (9/29)

In a previous My Trip to CVS I had said that I gotten the $9.49 which left me like $0.98 short of receiving my $10 Extra Bucks and I needed to figure out a way to get that $10 ECB.

I then remembered that I had a $2 off Sheamoisture digital coupon, $2 off Sheamoisture CVS coupon and a $5 off $10 Sheamoisture hair care. I grabbed the Babo Bath Tissue 8 ct and the $11.99 Sheamoisture, plus, I had the $8 ECB from the Money Maker Physicians Formula Rose Hand Sanitizer 0.87 oz. I got back $16 in Extra Bucks ($10 Love Beauty Planet/Sheamoisture and $6 for the Babo).

While, I was looking at both of my accounts trying to figure out how to get that $10 ECB, I noticed on my second account that I still had the $6.99 Love Beauty Planet digital coupon and I deleted my previous post that CVS had deleted it from our accounts. I not sure what happened to the reader’s $6.99 digital coupon but I still had my coupon in my account.

I went to a different store with higher prices and the $9.99 Love Beauty & Planet, I used the BOGO coupon and the $6.99 came off but for some reason the cashier enter $8.99 for the instead of $9.49 so I lost $0.50. I also bought the Reese’s peanut butter cups and I got back $11 in ECBs – $10 LB&P and $1 for the Reese’s.  The second store didn’t have the Babo toilet paper.

I paid about $10 for both transactions and got back $27 in Extra Bucks.


My Trip to CVS…Again!

A reader, Jessica, had read my earlier My Trip to CVS post and she commented that the CVS ad had excluded the L’Oreal Voluminous mascara or primer from the L’Oreal Buy 2 get $6 ECB limit 3.  However, yesterday, I watched a CVS Haul video on YouTube and the girl had bought the mascaras and got back the Extra Bucks and I bought the mascaras on Sunday not knowing about the exclusion.

This evening, I quickly grabbed my keys and went back to CVS to try to deal again on my other card and that card had a $6 off $30 coupon plus I had ECBs. I bought six mascaras and got back a $18 ECB.  I didn’t have any cosmetics CVS coupons but check your CVS account and clip any cosmetics or mascara digital coupons that you think might apply and head to CVS.

My purchase will qualify me for a $3 Beauty Bucks and the FREE Mascara CVS coupon when you buy 5 mascaras!!!  The mascara will make a great Christmas gift for any girl that wears mascara!

Thanks, Jessica!


My Trip to CVS

My late breakfast/early lunch is getting cold because I putting out all these post! 🤣

I had to go to two CVS stores to find the Money Maker Physicians Formula Rose Hand Sanitizer 0.87 oz. My nearest CVS was supposed to have it but it’s a busy store even with Self Checkout and I couldn’t find the sanitizer so I drove to the other store and they had a special display for the sanitizer so they were easy to spot.  This was between 9:30 a.m and 10 a.m. today and the $5 off any Physicians Formula or Almay cosmetics coupon that is printing for everyone, this week, scanned perfectly but was reduced to $4.58 which is the cost to by 2 sanitizers.

I bought the Love Beauty & Planet and the L’Oreal mascara yesterday. Amazingly, all of my CVS coupons came off ($6 off $30, $6.99 digital coupon, hair and cosmetics coupons) BUT I screwed up the Love Beauty & Planet because for some odd reason in expensive San Diego, CVS sells the LB&P for $9.49 and I didn’t catch it until I realized I didn’t get the $10 ECB so now I’ve got to figure out a way to inexpensively get LB&P or SheaMoisture hair products on the cheap so I can get the $10 ECB. 🙁

The L’Oreal mascara is an awesome deal $5.99 buy 2 get $6 ECB, limit 3, especially since I am only doing eye makeup since I’m wearing a mask while I am out and about.


I wanted to do the $5 Mid Week Money Maker Ibotta Bonus Rebate which ends today (9/2) and the $14.04 Money Maker Compeed Advanced Blister Care at Rite Aid got me going because I had already done the $10.02 Money Maker NeoThotics Heel Cushions Money Maker and I had $30 Bonus Cash sitting in my Rite Aid account so I knew I wouldn’t have any out of pocket doing the Compeed deal.

CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid and Sprouts are all in my neighborhood but I did get on the freeway to go to Walmart and Dollar Tree.  The Crest rebates had reset for me but CVS didn’t have anymore Crest Brilliance so I got that at Walgreens and used my Balance Rewards to lessen my out of pocket.  My actual out of pocket was less than $5 because I used my PayPal debit card, Store Rewards and a Walmart gift card.

Sprouts $5.97
Dollar Tree $2
Rite Aid 21.96
Walgreens $10.98
CVS $11.96
Walmart $14.73

= $67.6

Sprouts – Got back $6 IB
Dollar Tree – Got back $1 IB
Rite Aid – Got back $16 BC and $20 IB
Walgreens – Got back $6 IB
CVS – Got Back $8 ECB and $12 IB
Walmart – Got Back $5 eGift Card and $8.10 IB
Earned $5 Bonus

After Store Rewards and Ibotta rebates everything was FREE + $6.40 Money Maker!!!

I REALLY screwed up at Walgreens because I should have waited until Wednesday to see if the Crest would reset again and bought a Brilliance and Detox or Whitening Therapy because only (1) $3 off coupon came off on my receipt. I made the fatal mistake of using Balance Rewards points on a Spend X get X so I didn’t get back the 5,000 points.  We all make mistakes and we cannot agonize over it, we have to just move onto the next deal!



My Quick Trip to CVS

I had posted that I had gotten two FREE $1 off Extra Bucks in my account and I went to CVS and picked up the Reese’s miniatures for $2.99 minus the $2, paid $0.99 and got back a $1 ECB!
