Do You Shop At CVS??

As you all know, I am a huge coupon-er   I do not shop unless I have a stack of coupons with me!!

Over the last year or so, I have perfected my CVS shopping skills!!  It took a little while for me to really get the whole Extra Bucks thing down, but now that I know it, I love it!!

I usually shop at CVS once a week.  The new sales start on Sunday.  

I was running really late this past week, so I didn't hit CVS until this past Saturday (last day of the sale.)  Here is what I got-

I bought four 12 packs of Scott Toilet Paper.  Each one was $7.49.  I also bought a bottle of Dawn hand soap for .99 cents (this way I made sure I spent $30.)  By spending $30 I received $10 back in extra care bucks.  So all in all, $22.57 for 48 rolls of TP and a bottle of dish soap.  Not bad!!

Today I did a lot better!!  I had to do a couple of transactions, but it was WELL WORTH IT!!!

Transaction #1-

2 Bags Of Combos- Buy 1 Get 1 Free ($2.67) (one was eaten on the way home!!)

10 Nivea .84 oz Moisturizing Cream Tins .99 cents each ($9.90) (I gave 4 away)

I used one $1.00 off two bags of combos coupon

Total $12.19

Now here's where it gets really cool.  For every two Nivea's I bought, CVS gave me $6.00 in extra care bucks.  So I spent $12.19, but I walked out with $30 in extra care bucks!!  You can use that deal up to 6 times.  There were not enough on the shelf, so I could only take advantage of the deal 5 times.

Transaction #2-

2 Lady Speed Stick deodorants $2.99 each ($5.98)

2 Irish Spring 6 Pack Bar Soap $3.00 each ($6.00)

1 Colgate Optic White Toothpaste $3.00 each ($3.00)

I used two $1.00 off Speed Stick Coupons, two $1.00 off Irish Spring coupons, and 1 $1.00 off Colgate coupon.

Total before coupons was $15.60.  After coupons $10.60.  

For purchasing all of these items, I was given $6.00 in extra bucks rewards!!  

Transaction #3-

8 cases of Poland Spring 24 packs Bottled Water $3.99 each ($31.92)

I used 2 $1.00 off two cases coupons.  

The total was $29.92 and with my $30 extra bucks rewards, the water was all free!!!

Over all today at CVS I spent $6.79 if you subtract all of the extra bucks!!!  Not a bad haul!!!

For Christmas, Ben bought me a terrific gift.  It is just a plain old baseball card storage book, but it works perfectly for coupons.

I love it!!  Much better then my old system of envelopes for each store!!!

Do you use coupons??  Do you take advantage of extra bucks??
