I felt like I was stealing:)

I really ♥ shopping at CVS!!!!  I had to visit two different stores this week because the first one ran out of the cheap (ok, free) candy canes - it was totally worth it!!!

I still had Extra Care Bucks left over from my previous trip - my goal is to keep rolling them week over week.

And now onto the best part; here is what I got for very little out of pocket:

My first stop

Transaction #1:
2 Travel Size Aquafresh Toothpaste (regular price $1.27)
1 Huggies Jumbo Pack (on sale $9.49; regular price $11.99 and get $1 ECB)
2 Fireballs (my favorite candy) ($0.99 each)
1 pack of lunch bags (we needed this) (regular price $2.19)

Coupons used:
(2) $1 off of any size Aquafresh (I had printed these awhile ago and they were going to expire)
$3 off of Huggies (only sizes NB, 1 and 2) - this is a CVS coupon
$2 off of Huggies - this is a manufactures coupon and can be combined with the CVS coupon
$8.99 ECB from a previous visit

Total after coupons and tax: $.98  (my receipt says that I saved $18.49)
AND I received $1 Extra Care Bucks to be used on my next purchase!
As an extra bonus my receipt printed out a "save 25% on your next purchase" coupon...YAY!!!

My second stop 

Transaction #2:
1 box of Candy Canes 10 count (regular price $1.27 and get $1.27 ECB)
1 Revlon nail file (on sale for 50% off at $1.99; regular price $3.99)
1 Revlon eye shadow (on sale for 75% off at $1.25; regular price $4.99)

3 Hallmark Cards (totalling 11.97 - I know alot; and get $3 ECB)

Coupons used:
$3 off when you buy 3 Hallmark cards - printed from the CVS website
$1 off when you buy 2 cards - printed out from the red machine
$1 ECB from Transaction #1

$5 ECB from a previous visit
25% off coupon from Transaction #1 which = $3.58

Total after coupons and tax: $2.90  (my receipt says that I saved $19.32)

AND I received $5 Extra Care Bucks to be used on my next purchase!

Note:  The Candy Cane ECB did not print, so they rounded up and gave me $2 ECB instead!!  Also, since the revlon items were on sale they did not qualify for the $6 in ECB; which I didn't realize at the time.  But it was still a great deal!!

I walked away with so many products for less then $4 out of pocket!  I felt like I was stealing from CVS:)


  1. Isn't CVS great? Both my husband and I used to work there in college, he was a pharmacy tech and I was a cashier, and we always got the best deals!

  2. Great savings. Thanks for linking up at Pounds4Pennies this week. I am your newest follower via GFC. Would love for you to follow me back.

  3. Gotta love those coupons! I'm a huge fan too ;-)


<3 We would love to hear from you - it would make our day:)
