Cvs run - Happy to get cheap Prevacid, and surprise ECB coupon tonight!
I was so happy to finally find a decent deal on Prevacid. Lucky for me the magic coupon machine keeps printing out a $10/50 so that certainly helped.
I got the diapers for my niece as they are on clearance for $2.87 a pack and we got insert coupons this weekend for $1.50 off any pack! Helped get me up to the $50 purchase before coupons.
Well, I was suprised by the magic coupon machine when it spit out a coupon for 2 free jumbo packs of diapers! (apparantly there is a hidden diaper deal on Huggies, you earn a free pack for each 6 you buy and I bought 15 packs on Friday, so 2 free YIPPEE!
Here is the breakdown of my transaction tonight:
2 Pantene shampoo/conditioner $6.97 - $3/2 insert 6-19 SS = $3.97
Earns $2 ECB for a final price of .99 each
2 Oral B indicator toothbrushes $1.99 each - $2/2 insert 7-3 P&G = $1.98
Earn $1 ECB for each one, making them both free
2 Prevacid 14 count $11.49 each - $4 booklet(found at Kroger pharmacy) = $14.98
Earn $10 ECB for buying $20 worth of participating products
7 Huggies diapers $2.87 - $1.50 insert 7-17 SS = $9.59
-$10/50 CRT coupon
Paid $21.28 oop but got back $14 in ECBs so really only cost me $7.28 overall. (That is like paying ~ $1 a pack per diaper and getting everything else FREE!)
I also received the following Mystery Coupons from the coupon machine(they call them mystery coupons in the ad)
$5 off any $20 Revlon or Maybelline Cosmetic Purchase
$5 off Facial skin care purchase, $20 or more (both these expire tomorrow!)
Also, I noticed the ad mentions a new Olay rebate for $20 back when you buy $50 worth of Olay, I will post this in a separate post so those not shopping CVS will see it as well! Need to come up with a good scenario to make this a money maker! (Ok, I cannot find this rebate offer on the Olay website, hmmmm)
Other deals I noticed but decided not to do this week:
Crest toothpaste $1.99
Earn $1 ECB (limit 2)
We have .75 inserts from P&G making it .24 after coupon and ECBS
Xtra 28 load detergent $1.49
-$1/2 insert 5-1 SS
Chex Mix $1
$1/2 or .50/1 insert 7-10 SS
Gillette ProGlide razors $9.99
Earns $4 in ECBs
-$4 insert 6-5 P&G
Gillette Fusion gel $2.27
Earns $2 in ECBS
-$1 insert 6-5 P&G
