Starting August Off Right  

Posted by Johnny

This being back-to-school season for most retailers we are starting to see better sales and I am more than ready to take advantage of them. My parents and I went shopping yesterday at CVS and Walgreens and here are the deals I got.

CVS
#1
(2) Stretch Book Covers @ .99ea = 1.98
(2) Stayfree Pads @ $5ea - BOGO MQ = 5.00
(2) Protractors @ 1.50ea = $3
(1) Highlighter .01 wyb 1 stationary product
(1) Softsoap Nutri Serums 4.99 - $2/1 IP only available for some zips
(1) M&M Peanut .89 - FREE Q
I used a $4 & $10 ECB bringing my total OOP to $1.58
Received back $4, $3, $5, & $1.98 in ECB's
(The $5 ECB is from the pads so it will make those free if you have the BOGO Q)

#2
(3) Electrosol Tabs @ 4.50ea - (3) 2.50 MQ = $6
I have to buy (2) More to finish the deal, which is buy $20 get $10 ECB's, then it will make these all free.
I actually messed up this transaction long story...but in the end my OOP was $2.88
Received back no ECB's

#3
On Hubby's Card
(1) Softsoap Nutri Serums 4.99 - $2/1 IP
(3) Visine Wipes @ 3.99ea - (3) $3/1 MQ = .99ea (this is the same deal as the pads so you have to have two cards to do both, because the limit is one per card)
After ECB's I paid only .31 OOP

Received back $4 & $5 ECB's

Total of $4.77 for all 3 transactions. There is a total of 17 items and an average cost of .28/item. Ironically that is the same number of items I got at Walgreens too.




And as usual CVS was out of a lot of items so I will need to run elsewhere to get the other things.

Walgreens


#1
Vitamin Shampoo (smells yummy) $3.99
Total $4.27 paid with GC $0 OOP
Received a $4 RR

#2
(5) Pop Tarts @ $2ea - (5) .55/1 MQ = $7.25
(1) Clearance tape .22
Total $7.47 used $4 RR from #1 + .73 remaining on GC bring total to $2.76 OOP
Received back $5 RR

#3
(8) Suave Deodorant Sale $1.34ea - (8) .75/1 MQ = $6.97
(1) Clearance tape .22
Total $7.19 w/out tax used $5 RR from above bring OOP to $2.96
Received back $10 RR fro buying 8 Unilever products (hint Money Maker)

#4
Vitamin Shampoo @ 3.99
Paid $4.27 OOP I could have figured this out better so I could put this with something another day but they did not have a lot left and I wanted another bottle.
I received back a $4 RR

Total for 4 Transactions $9.99 and have $14 in RR. Not bad for 17 items for an average of .59/item. I went in with $5 on a GC and literally came back out with it in RR's.
