Tobins' Tastes: CVS Trip 11/9

CVS Trip 11/9

I have found that CVS and Walgreens are very hit or miss for me on their weekly ads. Unlike Publix or Target, it seems that the weekly sales at drugstores are either all on things I have no need for or are absolutely amazing. The last few weeks at CVS have made me pretty happy.

This week there is an ECB deal on Schick Products. You get $10 in ECB's if you purchase $20 worth of certain products. The Schick Intuition is my absolute favorite razor and the cartridges are so expensive and almost never go on sale. When I saw this deal I figured that I could combine it with a coupon and at least get a decent deal on my razor cartridges since I am currently completely out of them. Since the amount I spent out of pocket on everything this week was the same as my razor cartridges would have cost by themselves, I was pretty happy with the outcome.

Here is the breakdown of my trip this week. 

Transaction #1: $18.71 out of pocket
                         Earned $13 in ECB

Transaction #2: $2.16 out of pocket after ECB and coupons

Spent $20.87 total out of pocket on $56.93 worth of stuff
That's a savings of 63%

Transaction #1
 Transaction #1
  • 3 Hallmark cards at .99 cents each
    • Earned $3 ECB on these
  • 1 six pack of Schick Intuition razor cartridges at $20.99
    • Used a $5 printable coupon from coupons.com
    • Earned $10 in ECB
  • This was a lucky week since I had an extra $3 in ECB from last week to put towards my purchase
  • Total cost after coupon and $3 ECB = $18.71 plus earned an additional $13 in ECB


Transaction #2
Transaction #2
  • 2 bottles of Lysol wipes, normally retails for $3.39 each, on sale for $2.50 each
    • Used two $1 off coupons from a Walmart store display
    • Made them $1.50 each
  • 3 bottles of All laundry detergent, retails for $7.39 each, on sale for $3.99
    • Used three $1off coupons from the 10/02 RP
    • Made them $2.99 each
  • 2 cans of Cranberry Sauce (to donate for the food drive at school), normally $1.99 on sale for $1 each
  • Used $13 in ECB from transaction #1
  • Made my total $2.16
The Lysol wipes and the All are a part of the spend $30 get a $10 gift card promotion but I did not need enough of them or have enough coupons to make it worth it to buy $30 worth. These sales are going on through Saturday 11/12 if you want to take advantage of them. If you have never couponed at CVS before check out my post on drugstore couponing before you go.
