Today’s trip to CVS: Transaction #2…

Yesterday, the CVS pharmacy called me to say my re-fill on my allergy meds were ready for pickup. So, since I was going to break up transactions at CVS, it was a perfect opportunity to run and pickup my meds and do a little Extra Bucks (EB) shopping while I was there!

I found out two things shopping at the Point Loma CVS:
  1. They don’t take expired EBs. I had a $3 EB that expired on 6/30/09 which means it expired 5 days ago.
  2. They will only take one coupon per item. For example, if you buy two box of tissues and you have a coupon for each box of tissues, they will only let you use one coupon per item per transaction. THAT’S CRAZY but I won’t argue with a cashier. Again, this was the Point Loma CVS in San Diego.

Here are my gets at CVS:

Bought 1 Febreze Fabric Refresher $5
Bought 1 Febreze Air Effects $3
Bought 2 Febreze Noticeables $13
Bouhgt 1 Head & Shoulders Shampoo $4.99
Bought 1 Head & Shoulders Conditioner $4.99
Bought 1 CVS Pencils 10ct $.99
Bought 1 Kleenex tissues $2.29 (my allergies)

Total: $34.26

Used -$10 EB
Used -$4.47 EB
Used -$2 EB
Used -$.50 Febreze Air Effects Q (Home Made Simple coupon booklet)
Used -$4 Febreze Noticeables Q (Proctor & Gamble 7/5)
Used -$4.99 BOGO Head & Shoulders Q
Used -$3 Free Febreze Air Effects when you buy any Febreze Fabric Refresher Q (Smart Source 7/5)

Total After Coupons & EBs = $5.30 EBs earned = $12.99

Total Value = $34.26 with $12.99 EBs remaining!

I got $34.26 worth of items at CVS and only paid $6.86 (incl tax)…so no, I am not mad at the cashier…I am so HAPPY to be saving all that money!!!!!!!!!

PS – You should hand the cashier your EBs first b/c this reduces your taxes b/c the cash register treats the EBs like a store discount and then hand over your coupons. That’s how I ended up paying just $1.56 on $34.26 worth of items!
