Finally, a good week at CVS! Last week I “bought” another free Oral-B Vitality toothbrush and 4 bags of M&Ms for $5. I “needed” chocolate for St. Nick’s. So, this week is a great example of how a $5 off $15 purchase coupon pays off. Also, how a raincheck can come in handy (I had one for Kleenex for 89 cents). Rainchecks at CVS do not expire so it is really worth it to ask for one. Basically, I had to get to $15 before coupons to use the $5 off coupon. I am on the elliptical so here is a list of prices instead of a spreadsheet.
Huggies 8.99 ($3 CVS coupon in the mail plus $2.50 manf.)
Excedrin 8ct .99 (get .99 ECB)
Advil PM 4ct .99 (get .99 ECB)
(3) Kleenex .89 ($.50/3 manf. Q)
Bonnie Bell Lipsmackers 1.50 ea ($1/1 coupon, used 2)
Used $3 ECB and got back $1.98
I don’t care so much that I lost an ECB because there are so many money makers on Thanksgiving. I’ve decided to go shopping on Thanksgiving for the first time ever, unless I get there and see massive lines, I’m coming straight home!
Anyone with advice about Black Friday or Thanksgiving shopping? How do you think the crowd will be at CVS (if any)??
