If you are interested in the details, here they are. I tried to group the items in the photo together by which transaction I bought them in. The Cottonelle Wipes in transaction #2 were part of the “Buy $25 of Kleenex, get $10 ECB”, but I needed to use them so that I wouldn’t be in the negative for the Maalox/Benefiber transaction. When I purchased the remaining $23 of Kleenex products in the next transaction, I got the $10 ECB. It took me a while to figure out that you could split up the promotions in separate transactions, as long as you purchase all the items during the deal week, you will get the ECB once you reach the total. If you are interested in more information about this weeks deals, check out Simply CVS. I just recently discovered this blog and it has some great info on how to shop CVS and various coupon match-ups.
Side Note: I did the first transaction on Sunday and the second two on Monday. Usually, if I have two transactions, I do the first and take it to my car and come back for the second. That way I don’t make anyone else wait longer, but it was super slow (and snowy outside) so I just asked if the cashier wouldn’t mind ringing me up two times since no one was in line. She didn’t mind at all, which was super nice of her. I always wondered how other people handle multiple transactions when I read other blogs, so I am mentioning that in case it helps anyone out 🙂
Bill saw my pile and said, “Will we use all this stuff?” The answer is no, but I can donate the Maalox and Benefiber and maybe even some of the Kleenex. I purchased those items because they were part of a “money maker scenario” or reduced my out of pocket cost for things that I do use. I was super excited about the Finish, All, TP, wipes, and Kleenex. If there is one thing I have learned in the past year it is stock up on the things you use when you see them at a great price. The deals go in cycles and it is such a bummer to pay full price when you run out, remembering that you got it for almost nothing a few months ago.
We should be good with dishwasher detergent for 4-6 months (I think) and it is the kind that the kids LOVE so they will want to help with dishes. Thank you, CVS!
