My Trip to Ralphs & CVS

I stopped by Ralphs to pick up my freebies – pop corn, yogurt and the Stretch Island Fruit Strips but the FREE Epic Protein Bar must not be in store, yet, because this particular Ralphs always put the Friday Freebies in front of each cash register so customers can easily grab them.

The CVS is in the same strip mall, and I want to say on Friday or Saturday, I received a 30% off CVS coupon in my mail box and so the Covergirl eye pencil and the Tostitos salsa was a better deal with the 30% coupon.  I grabbed the Coke because it was kinda hot in San Diego on Sunday.

I love this transaction because I was able to roll Extra Bucks into cash and I paid just $0.83 for the soda! If the cashier would have entered the full value of the B1G1 Free coupon, it would have all been FREE but it’s all good.
