So it wasn't my best CVS run ever. I learned my lesson and should have broken up the transactions into 2 or 3 "around $10" transactions. Then I probably would have paid pennies! Oh well. I also messed up and grabbed a wrong toothbrush. So that's also why it came out a little higher. Got....to...pay....more....attention...LINDSAY!! Ok.
TOTAL for this transaction: $4.33 (saved $54.24)
The batteries were on clearance for $2.90 and I had $1.00 coupons Had to get those. All the makeup was free because Cover Girl was BOGO this week and I used a BOGO coupon. Which is COMPLETEY OKAY TO DO. I talked to CVS corporate personally - after a rude encounter with a "manager" that said it was "HIS RULE" not to use my BOGO coupons. Oh, he got an earfull from upper management later, I'm sure of it!
I received back ECBs for the toothbrushes and toothpaste. All in all..not too shabby.
But this is where shopping gets fun. I just happened to notice those clearance batteries - good Energizer e2 batteries!! Then as I was pulling them off, there were 4 packs with $2.00 coupons I could use instantly!
So I bought 4 more packs of batteries all for $2.18!!! I'm not sure you can get batteries like this for $0.55 each at WallyWorld!! :-) And we go through AAA batteries like candy here!!
Always have to keep your eyes peeled! There are hidden deals all the time! My brain is still being trained to look out for these!
