CVS Shopping Trip 8/2/2009 – 2 Stores!


I’m so silly!  I love good deals.  I was so excited about Finish Electrosol being on sale this week that I had to run out early this morning to try and get it.

Electrasol Tabs or Gelpacs $4.50 ea Spend $20 Earn 10 ECBs Limit 1
– Buy 5 and use 5 $2.50/1  from the 7/12 SS insert
Spend $10.00, get $10.00 ECB!
=FREE after coupons and ECBs! (Thanks Saving Cents with Sense and Thriftymama!)

I walked into my favorite CVS and knew they usually are out of stock fast.  I think it was about 10:00 when I got there.  I didn’t even think about the school supplies.   Click HERE to see my earlier post of other great deals at CVS!

I also had a $3 CRT for Monistat and a $4 coupon from an insert to use that would make it $7 off.  Something I like to buy on hand.  I know the CRT would expire by next week so I decided to get it with my $5/$30 coupon.

When I got to the store they only had 4 Finish boxes (1 was opened but had them all there).  I then bought Lysol disinfectant spray for $4 and used a $1 coupon that expires 8/3/09.

My transaction looked like this:

This is all on my Nana’s card.

4 Electrosol Finish for $18

1 Monistat for $13.99

1 Lysol for $4

-$5/$30 coupon (CVS coupon)

-$1.00 Lysol coupon

$12.99 before ECBs

-$11.98 ECBs

After I went to Staples I felt like I was on a roll so I went to another CVS but this one is usually out of stock pretty quickly but I thought it wasn’t that far away.

I went and they had only 3 boxes of Finnish and shortly after I asked the cashier she showed me the where they kept more so I got all 5 boxes!  Since I had done the transaction already on my Nana’s card I decided to do this one on mine.

I also happened to have an extra B1G1 FREE coupon for the stayfree.  I couldn’t help myself.  If I’m not going to use them then I can always donate them.
