CVS Good Deal of the Week


Not bad for $1.16 OOP, huh? Pretty sure this is a personal best for me.

(2) 5-subject Notebooks
(2) 1-subject Notebooks
(2) Rulers
(2) pairs Scissors
(2) bottles school Glue
(3) packs Paper-Mate Pens
(1) Gallon T. G. Lee Milk
(1) Gillette Fusion Razor
(3) bottles Tylenol Arthritis

Coupons used:
(1) $4/1 Gillette Fusion from 7/5 P&G
(3) $2/1 Tylenol Arthritis from 5/17 RP
(1) $1/1 any T.G. Lee product (printable available HERE)

I had $22.99 in ECB that I used towards this and split it into 2 transactions. Spent $1.16 OOP and got back $23.95 ECBs!

I plan on going back this week for the free 6 x 8 Photo Book and possibly the Benefiber/Maalox deal.

I brought me sister with me this week to CVS. She's never done the "whole coupon thing" (her words), so we planned out a few scenarios for her to get all the free after ECBs items with $5 or less OOP.

Scenario 1
(1) Tylenol Arthritis - $3.99
(2) 1-subject Notebooks - $.99ea - $1.98
- $2/1 Tylenol coupon from 5/17 RP
Total OOP: $3.97
ECBs Earned: $1.98 from Notebooks, $3 from Tylenol

Scenario 2
(1) Tylenol Arthritis - $3.99
(1) pair Scissors - $2.99
- $2/1 Tylenol coupon from 5/17 RP
- $4.98 ECB from Scenario 1
Total OOP: $0
ECBs Earned: $2.99 from Scissors, $3 from Tylenol

Scenario 3
(1) Tylenol Arthritis - $3.99
(2) bottles school Glue - $.99ea - $1.98
(3) packs Paper-Mate Pens - $.99ea - $2.97
- $2/1 Tylenol coupon from 5/17 RP
- $5.99 ECB from Scenario 2
Total OOP: $.95
ECBs Earned: $2.97 from Pens, $1.98 from Glue, $3 from Tylenol

Scenario 4
(1) Ruler - $.99
(1) pair Scissors - $2.99
(1) Gillette Fusion Razor - $7.99
- $4/1 Gillette Fusion from 7/5 P&G
- $7.95 ECB from Scenario 3
Total OOP: $.02
ECBs Earned: $.99 from Ruler, $2.99 from Scissors, $4 from Gillette

Scenario 5
(2) 5-subject Notebooks - $3.99ea - $7.98
-$7.98 ECBs from Scenario 4
Total OOP: $0
ECBs Earned: $6 from Notebooks

TOTAL OOP: $4.94
and you'll still have $6 ECBs to spend another day!
