CVS Run Jan 3

I am trying to get back into the CVS game so I don't know all the rules of CVS(since they are notorious for changing them regularly). I had a $5/30 so I needed a store that had several deals and I found one. I found out this store does not adjust ECB's down, so I had to throw in a clearance filler that didn't actually ring in correctly.
Here is my scenario:
2 Oust Surface and Air $3.99 each - bogo insert 1-3 = $3.99
2 SoyJoy 6 packs $6 each = $12
4 Nivea Lip care $2.99 each - 2 bogo insert 1-3 = $5.98
1 Halloween gummies .50 -.40 store coupon(cashier adjusted down 80% but it was supposed to be 90% clearance) = .10
-$17 in ECBS
Cost oop : $0.07

Earned : $6 for Oust($3 for each Oust, Limit 6), $12 for Soy Joy($6 for each Soy Joy, Limit 6), and $5 for Nivea(purchase $10 earn $5, Limit 1)
Profit of $5.93

If you are making a trip this week, you may also want to try to get one of these deals:
*Don't forget to ask for a raincheck if your store is sold out. You can get a raincheck for ECB deals!
Ge Energy Smart bulbs $1.99 - $1 insert = .99
Earn $1 ECB (Limit 1)
Final price: .99 at register but -.01 AFTER ECB

Crave-Nx diet aid spray .64 oz $7.99
Earn $7.99 ECB (Limit 1)
Final price: $7.99 at register but FREE AFTER ECB

Colgate Total or MaxFresh 4.6-6oz toothpaste 2/$5 - 2 $1 insert 1-3 SS
Earn $2 wyb 2 (Limit 1)
Final price: $3 at register but $1 AFTER ECB

I ran over to the store quick this morning and couldn't find either, but I only had a minute and thought I must have read your blog wrong and it was last week's deal. I just reread and it looks like this week, but I don't see the Soy Joy deal or the oust deal in the flyer. Can you help?

Calandra, these are bonus pack deals that CVS seems to be having yearly. The information for them is usually advertised in the store. HCW has a thread started on the subject of these here:

Thanks! I will look for the box of 6 again and try it.

so the OUST is a bonus pack? but you show them seperately? I'm confused. Guess I might have to go see it for myself but I didn't notice anything when I went yesterday.

Ashley, the Oust are part of the "bonus pack" promo, but they are individual cans. I got mine from the regular aisle and they worked(same UPC) just some cans have a special sticker that advertises the ECB deal.

I remember the Soy Joy deal from last year and loved it, but I've gone to 2 stores and neither have the 6 count box. I've looked at end caps, in the "nutrition bar" area, everywhere. Where are you guys finding them? Thanks!

The soyjoy deal from last year nearly forced my DH and I to seperate! That was one of the few times I let him coupon for me ... he bought out the entire store of "SINGLE" bars, and sulked when I made him return every single one! Poor man .. he thought he'd done great ... even though he got no ECBs! sigh ...

I went to 2 stores in the Galleria area tonight, they are well stocked with the Oust spray but I can't find the 6 pack Soy Joys, only the single bars.

Great find on the Nivea lip care too, I needed that!
