Better than Free Skintimate at CVS

WOW!  I stopped into CVS this morning and found these $2 peelies on the Skintimate shave gels.  What is even better is I bought the two cans the peelies were attached to and earned an $8 ECB for buying Skintimate.  That makes them each a profit of $2.61!!!! Sweet
If you don't find the peelies, there are still .55 inserts in 1-15 SS making them a $1.16 money maker, yay!

Other deals I got:
I purchased 3 .99 American Greeting cards and used
 free greeting card with purchase of other greeting cards (of equal value, sort by flowers and gifts to find it quicker).  and $2 off 3 greeting cards CVS store coupon here.  Spent $0 and got back $3 ECB

Purchased 1 Cadbury Mini eggs at .87 and got back $.87 ECB.

Found 4 more Carmex healing skin care coupons in my stash so picked up 3 more trial size for free
(coupon expires 1-31 and can be found in 10-30 RP)

Picked up Instyle Magazine for free
Magazine is $3.99 - $2 IP - $2 SavingStar reward(SavingStar will not come off at the register but will be added to your account for your purchase, learn more about SavingStar on my post here)

I didn't have these coupons with me but I have heard of some friends that are purchasing the $1.99 Speed Sticks and using the bogo coupons from this past weekend.  If you have 3 coupons you can get them free (or better) after ECBS (spend $12 get $6 ECB, some friends are reporting the bogo coupon is auto deducting the full $3.99 value!)

Not to be a party pooper, but I am confused. On the Skintimate shave gel, the coupon is $2.00. The price is $3.39. So how did you make a profit if you're still spending $1.39 on the item?

Each one earned a $4 ECB back, thus I got back more than I spent (I also paid with previous ECBS from prior deals so my oop was actually only .53 cash)

So 3.39 x 2 = 6.78
-2 $2 peelies
=2.78 cost at register
Earned $8 back in ECBS
8 - 2.78 = 5.22 profit OR 2.71 each

Is there a limit on Skininimate Shaving Gel and American Greeting cards deal?

How does Speed Stick deodorant work? I counted 6 deodorants and it totaled up to 11.94. Few cents below the minimum of $12.00 to get $6 EB.

Anon, the limit on the cards is 1, the limit on the Skintimate is 100.
Unlike Walgreens, CVS allows you to be a few pennies short to still get the ECB deals
