$64 Worth of Stuff At CVS For Less Than $11 Out Of Pocket

Today was the first time in a few weeks that I really felt like a CVS trip was worth the planning (it's right down the street from my house which makes it even more worth it). I really wanted to take advantage of the $10 gift card promotion where you earn a $10 gift card (I chose American Express) when you spend $30 (before coupons) on certain products.

I spent $10.54 out of pocket (after the $10 value of the gift card I earned) for a total of $63.62 worth of products in two transactions. That is like saving 83%! Here is how it broke down:


Transaction #1

Transaction #1:
  • Spent $8.99 out of pocket on a bottle of Complete Contact Solution
  • Earned $8.99 in ECB's
Transaction #2:
    
    Transaction #2
    
  • Spent $11.55 after ECB's earned in first transaction and coupons
  • Earned a $10 Gift Card
  • Made it like spending $1.55 on second transaction
Total for the day:
  • $8.99 spent in first transaction
  • $1.55 after gift card on second transaction
  • $10.54 Total after gift card!
Here are the coupon match ups for the second transaction. All of these items qualified for the spend $30 earn a $10 gift card. They were all also on sale and I had coupons for all of them. The transaction normally would retail for 54.63 without the sale prices or coupons.
