What I am getting for almost FREE from C*V*S this week!!

So I am figuring some of you want to hear all about the deals already...Sara???

Anyway, I just did the coupon match that I am going to do for C V S this week. There is a whole nother post on how to put them together, but I am getting 16 items for essentially free...and making a bit on the process

So I would start here (and remember I am a beginner too...)


1st transaction:
Buy both Crest Pro-Healthy Enamel Shield Toothpaste and Rinse
Coupon: 75c from 2/7 P&G (toothpaste) and $2 from 2/7 P&G (rinse)
Pay $4.25 and get $7 ECB
Total: $2.75 money maker!

So so far we have spent 4.25 but now have 7.00 in ECB back.

Next transaction:

Aussie Hair Care — $2.99
Deal: Buy 1 and use $1 Q. Pay $1.99 and get 2 ECB

Covergirl 1 pressed powder, 1 liquid foundation (teen remember??)
6.00 each. Use BOGO from P&G and 1.00 from P&G.
Pay 5.00 for both and get 5.00 ECB

Sobe Life Water
BOGO sale. Buy 2 Use additional BOGO coupon
Buy 2 for FREE!

USE 7 ECB from transaction 1 to pay for this. Still only 4.25 OOP and now have a 2 and a 5 ECB= 7 ECB

Transaction 3:
Neutrogena (2) theraputic shampoos at 5.29 each
(2) 2.00 printable coupons
Pay 6.58 after MFG and get 5 in ECB

Colgate total toothpaste 2.99
use 1.00 mfg
pay 1.99 and get 2 ECB

Use 7 ECB from transaction 2 and pay 1.57 OOP (total of 5.82 OOP) have a new total of 7 ECB (5 and 2)

Transaction 4:Gillete disposable razors (sale for 5.79)
use 3.00 mfg. pay 2.79 get 2 ECB

Buy 1 glade sense and spray, 1 plug in, and 1 refill for total of 12.00
Use BOGO coupon, 3.00, 1.50 and 1.50 MFG
Pay 3.00 for 3 get 4 ECB

Buy 2 small scotch lint rollers for 1.00 each
use (2) 1.00 MFG

Total owed 5.79 use 5 ECB from transaction 3. Pay .79 OOP

So for a total of 6.61 OOP I got all of these items PLUS I have 6 ECB with this transaction and 2 left from transaction 3. Total 8 ECB for next time. So essentially I made $1.39 and bought 16 items. Wooo hooo!!

One helpful hint: I will go get all the items for transaction 1 pay for it, leave the bag in the cart and go on to transaction 2 ect. I have found that this not only helps me with keeping from being confused, but a lot of times I get an extra coupon that prints on the bottom of my reciept for something like 3.00 off of 15. I can use that on a purchase if possible. Even better!

Happy Clipping

I'm so confused! How do you do this?! Is it all online or what? We're using coupons now too, but I have NO idea how you're saving what you are...and where you're getting these things (online or in the store). Help!

How long have you been clipping coupons? Several of the coupons are from january. Many of them are from last weeks PG add that was in the paper. I only printed out 2 this week from online. The Sobe Life water and the Neutrogena coupons. It takes quite a while to stockpile your coupons. You might want to buy 2 papers or more. They will easily pay for themselves. You can also get them off of Ebay as well for cheap if you are looking for something specific and have a good deal that you want. It is confusing, but I am hoping that step by step you will get it better. I can help you next time you are in town too.
Love you!
