My CVS Run

As I have stated before, I don't really do the full matchups for CVS and Walgreens anymore because there are full time bloggers that do a much better job (given it IS their job afterall :D )
I usually start on different forums and blogs to get a base then narrow those down to the freebies, money makers or the items I actually need, then I go through the ad myself for anything else I might want to ad that didn't get matched up or got overlooked.

This week I HAD to go today to optimize my savings because I had a $5/25 email coupon added to my card that expires today.  I also had a $3/15 that expires 6/30 from an email quiz about the Minute Clinic.  Here is the deal I ran to get the best deal for what I was interested:

2 Dry Idea Stainclear AP/deodorant 2/$6 (this has actually become my new favorite!!!)
Use 2 $2 coupon from 6/15 Red Plum insert
Pay $2 at register and earn $2 ECB for buying 2 (limit 1)
Free after coupon and ECB
*Right Guard is also part of this and there is a new printable that would make those free too if you prefer those

1 Colgate 360 toothbrush $2.99
Use $1 coupon from 6/1 Smart Source insert (expires 6/21)
Pay $1.99 at register and earn $2 ECB for buying 1 (limit 2)
Free after coupon and ECB (I only had one coupon so only did this once)

Crest Sensi-Relief Toothpaste (4-4.8 oz) $2.99
Use $1 printable 
Pay $1.99 at register and earn $2 ECB (limit 2)
Free after coupon and ECB (Sensi-Relief and Crest Be are not listed in the ad, but are listed on my online weekly ad as participating.  they were NOT marked on the shelf but worked just fine)
If you buy the Crest Be, there is an insert coupon from 5/11 P&G or a printable

1 Aquafina flavor splash 16.9 oz $0.88 (limit 6)
Use $1 CVS store printable
Free after coupon (or better than free if they don't adjust your coupon down)
*in the matchups it lists a bogo in 4/13 Smart Source but I couldn't find that coupon else I could have gotten two free as the CVS coupon is limit 1 per transaction

12 Brach's candy $2.50 each = $30
Use 12 $1.50 coupons from 5/11 Red Plum insert
Pay $12 at register but get back $10 gas reward

My total Before coupons was  $45.85 so I was able to use both my $5/25 and $3/15
After coupons my total was $11.85 which I paid down in ECBS and earned back

$10 gas card
$4 from Crest toothpaste
$2 from Sure
$2 from Colgate 360

Final was a profit of $6.15 (11.85 - 18)

*Another deal but my store was sold out

Bausch + Lomb PeroxiClear solution 3 oz $4.99, Earn $3 ECB (limit 1)
Use $1.50 coupon from 6/15 Smart Source insert
Final cost would be just $0.49 after coupon and ECBs
