My Trip to CVS…

I had to make a run over to CVS this evening before my FREE $2 Extra Bucks expired.  I really didn’t have a senario mapped out.  A month or two ago, I had found a $2 Glade peelie and I WAS going to get 2 of the Windex Multi-Cleaner since there was a $1 Q in the SS 5/9 but when I went to go get it…it was sold out!

So, I grabbed the Fantastic instead (I didn’t bring any Q’s for Fanstic) which was part of the 2/$5 sale.

Here are my gets at CVS:

Bought 2 Fantastic Spray Cleaners $5
Bought 2 Glade Candles $5

Total = $10

Used -$2 Glade peelie
Used -$2 FREE Extra Bucks
Used -$3 Extra Bucks

Total after coupons and EBs = $3

EBs Earned = $5

Cost = $1

Notes:  I can remember a time when I use to buy Fantastic at the grocery store and I would pay like $4.99 for this stuff.  But now, I shop smarter…I got 2 candles and 2 Fantastics for what equals to .25 cents each after coupons and EBs…now that’s what we call “building up the benjamins!”

    I found a coupon for CVS on the ground outside Applebees. LOL. I don't shop there b/c it's not real close by but it looked like a RA coupon so I grabbed it off the ground. My friends thought it was hilarious. It is $5 off any Lysol healthy touch soap kit.

    So anyways it got me thinking… can you only use ECBs or coupons that are connected to your card b/c this coupon has part of a card # on it and a persons name!

    Man, oh man, you found a $5 Lysol Hand Soap kit CRT on the ground the ground!

    Unfortunately, you can't use someone else's CRT with your card.

    What you can do is go to a CVS that you don't frequent and tell them that you forgot your card and give them a made up phone number and it will probably say that your number is not in the system. The cashier will probably get tired of the register beeping and just push through the found $5 Lysol CRT.

    After the fire and I had lost my CVS card, I couldn't remember which phone number was associated with my account. I gave him one last number but he was gonna push it through if I hadn't of given him one more phone number to try.

    I have no shame as far as having a long line behind me! LOL
