Update – My friend Susie sent me a few Target coupons to make these deals even sweeter! I knew some of our stores took drug store coupons as a competitor but I didn't realize some CVS stores will even take Target coupons – WOOHOO!
Shelly emailed this fabulous picture of her deals at CVS this week, and I think it's inspired me to get my act together! She got all this for just $9.21, AND she earned $9 in Extra Care Bucks for her next purchase, AND she'll get rebates for the SCJohnson products – WOW! She did have a $5/$15 CVS coupon that printed for her the last time she was at CVS, so be on the lookout for those!
Shelly inspired me to get it together and actually come up with a CVS scenario – I used to save oodles of money at CVS but have gotten lazy (or busy, maybe?) Here's what I'm hoping to do at CVS this week:
Buy $10 worth of specific SC Johnson products get $5 in ECB
Buy 3 Kellogg's Cereals at $3.33 get $5 ECB
Buy 4 Windex Multi Surface ($2.50 each)
Buy 3 Kellogg's Cereals ($3.33 each)
Use 4 $1/1 Windex coupons HERE or from 5/9 SS
Use $1.50/3 Kellogg's coupon from 5/23 RP or HERE, or $1/2 HERE
Use $5/$20 Rite Aid Video Values coupon HERE (the CVS stores in my area accept Rite Aid as a competitor – this may be different depending on where you live. Be sure to register your CVS card online to get a CVS $4/$20 coupon if you haven't already!)
Spend $9.50 out of pocket, get $10 in ECB
Buy $15 in Dove, Degree, Caress or Lever, get $3 ECB
Buy Old Spice Deodorant get $1 ECB
Buy 6 Dove Deodorants ($1.50 each)
Buy 2 Old Spice Deodorants $3.99
Use 2 $3/2 Dove Deodorants HERE
Use 6 $1/1 Dove Target Store Coupons HERE
Use 2 $1/1 Dove Deodorants HERE
Use B1G1 Old Spice Deodorant from 4/18 RP
Use $10 Register Rewards from Transaction #1
Pay $1 out of pocket, get $4 in ECB – FREE if you use those Target Dove coupons!
Buy $10 in John Frieda products, get $3 in ECB
Buy 2 John Frieda Products ($5 each)
Use 2 $2.50/1 HERE or $5/2 from SS
Use $4 in ECB from Transaction #2
Get $3 in ECB
So you'll pay a total of $10.50 out of pocket for SEVENTEEN items, get $3 to use on your next trip, and earn a $5 rebate from SCJohnson for all that Windex! WOOHOO!
Thanks to Money Saving Mom and Mojo Savings for parts of the scenario, and a huge thanks to Shelly (and Susie, too!) for inspiring me to figure out some deals! For tips on how to start CVS'ing, check out Money Saving Mom's CVS 101.
