CVS - Better than Free Olay Products - after Rebate

I admit I have been a little MIA lately and I apologize for that.  I was just getting really burned out on chasing the deals and wanted to spend a little more time with my family.  I took last week off from work and didn't leave the house except for 2 days, it was WONDERFUL!
But, I am back at work and thus might as well get back to shopping.  I only got a chance to hit up CVS today cause I accidently drained the power from my car battery(Don't Ask, lol) and couldn't hit any other stores.

Well, there is a really good deal this week on Olay so I at least scored that.
First, if you can find this rebate form, make sure to pick on up so you can save your ink (if you don't find them, you can print here):
This rebate is for a $10 rebate when you buy $30 worth on Olay.  I was told by my coupon bud that the Olay deal advertised in the CVS ad is limit 2 even though it says limit 1 in ad(you MIGHT have to break up your transactions to get them both to print).  Since it was limit 2, I decided the best way for ME to do the deal was for 4 sets in my first transaction and 2 in the second so I could optimize the use of my $3/2 coupons.  Here is how my transactions went:

4 Olay facial cleansers/cloths $3.74 each
4 Olay bodywash $5.99 each
1 Feather clip $1.99
=$40.91
-$3 off $15 CRT for Olay (it listed other products too but I used it and can't remember them all, lol)
-4 x $5.99 Free Olay BodyWash wyb facials or cleansers, 7/29 Proctor and Gamble insert
-2 x $3/2 Olay facial cleansers or cloths, 7/1 Proctor and Gamble insert, expires tomorrow!
-$2 CRT for any hair accessory
=$5.95 and earned $5 ECB for spend $25 in P&G promo (plus the full $40.91 should count toward beauty reward)

This receipt will qualify me for the $10 rebate for Olay as well, BUT since I was only $11.08 from the next $25 spend for $5 ECB, I did one more transaction:


2 Olay facial cleansers/cloths $3.74 each
2 Olay bodywash $5.99 each
=$19.46
-2 x $5.99 Free Olay BodyWash wyb facials or cleansers, 7/29 Proctor and Gamble insert
-$3/2 Olay facial cleansers or cloths, 7/1 Proctor and Gamble insert, expires tomorrow!
=$4.48 and earned $5 ECB for spend $25 in P&G promo (plus the full $19.46 should count toward beauty reward, so I should get $5 ECB in two days for that)

That makes my final:
$5.95 + $4.48
-$5 ECB - $5 ECB - $5 ECB - $10 rebate
=Profit of $14.57 overall
YAY

A couple other deals I might do to roll my ECBS(but I just wasn't coordinated today)

I also got some of these CRTs to match up:
$2 Revlon Beauty Tool
There are $2.99 clippers(online price)
I plan to combine with manuf coupon from 6/24 Smart Source to get free

$2 off 3 Pantene, Herbal Essences,  or Aussie products
Pantene is 2/$6.97
I plan to combine with manuf $3/2 coupon from 6/24 SS or 7/29 P&G
making my cost $1.97 for two (before beauty reward earnings of .70)

$2 Bayer Asprin purchase of $4 or more
Cheapest is $3.19 so I can get two those use 2 $3/1 Bayer from 6/24 Smart Source
Making it a profit of $1.62

I got a $1 off $5 CRT for Dawn, Vicks, Puffs, Crest, CoverGirl or Gillette.
Most likely I will use this just for Dawn @ .99 each
I will combine this with 2 .25/1 from 7/1 P&G and  4 .50/1 coupons from 7/29 Proctor and Gamble
$2.44 or .41 each

Accu Chek Nano meter $9.99
Use $10 coupon from 7/29 Red Plum
FREE

Are you allowed to use the Bogo coupon and $3 off 2 at the same time? when I tried using both they said I could only use one.

as long as you buy enough products yes. I used the $3/2 for the ones I was paying for on the bogo deal :D
