cvs shopping trip 112209

Cost = $8.98

Thanks to the fact I got a $5/$30 coupon in my email and a FREE green tag coupon, this turned out to be a pretty good trip.  This isn’t the best diaper deal that I’ve come across.  Still I didn’t pay much! I used a Gift Card that I had from last years cold and illness season.

This is what I did:

When you Buy $20 get $5 ECBs on any Huggies jumbo excluding overnights and large pack of Huggies wipes $6.99 Limit 1

2 – Huggies Stay & Dry $18.99

Used 1 -$2.00 IP Huggies Coupon

Used 1 -$1.50 Huggies Coupon 10-25-09 SS  (Check your insert since some have $1.00 and some have $1.50)

1 – Huggies Wipes $6.99

Used -$.50/1 Huggies wipes 10-25-09 SS

2 – Complete Contact Solution $8.99 each – Get back $8.99 ECBs  Limit 2

Used 2 – $1/1 Multi-Purpose Solution, Any 12 Oz. + (Free Lens Case Inside) – 10-25-09 RP

1 – Green bag tag $.99

Used -$.99 Green bag tag CVS coupon

Subtotal $44.95 Much more than I usually spend.

– $5/$30 CVS coupon

After coupons $32.96

-$7.99 ECB from last week’s Ear Rinse

-$3.00 ECB from last week’s Clairol Natural Instincts

$21.97  I used my Gift Card so the OOP $0.00

ECBs $23.98 (I got the ECBs for the $17.98 contact solution, $5 Huggies diapers and $1 for using the Green tag 4 times!)

Cost = $8.98 for 2 packs of diapers, 1 mega wipes and 2 contact solutions!!

What I should of done retrospect is to purchase only 1 Complete contact solution.  However, it would cost me less out of pocket but more in ECBs.

2 – Huggies Stay & Dry $18.99

Used 1 -$2.00 IP Huggies Coupon

Used 1 -$1.50 Huggies Coupon 10-25-09 SS  (Check your insert since some have $1.00 and some have $1.50)

After coupons $24.97

Use $10.99 ECBs

Total OOP $14.98

Get ECBs  $14.99

Cost = $9.98

Transaction 2

Purchase another complete contact solution $8.99

Use the $8.99 ECB from above  (or use the -$1.00 Complete contact solution 10-25-09 RP) and purchase something else for $1.00!

Get ECBS  $8.99

Cost = 0.00

Total Cost =  $1.99 for 2 packs of diapers, 1 mega wipes and 2 contact solutions!!

  • You had a great CVS trip today Holly!
    I got a $4/$20 purchase coupon via email as well as the free green tag coupon. I had a great CVS trip today! I was starting out with zero ECB’s so I spent a little bit more out-of-pocket than I really wanted, but did stock up on diapers/pull-ups (we had just run out, and although my son is basically potty-trained, we still need them for long trips out and at night). I didn’t realize the contact solution was limit 2 for the ECBs… I only bought one, so I might go back tomorrow to get another with my $8.99 ECB I have.

    • Hi Laura!

      That is awesome! I need to take a picture of my loot! I sure wish I had been smarter and got the second contact solution in a second transaction after the first. Oh well! Maybe with my other card. 😉 The hubby and baby were in the car.

      Just remember you don’t need to use a coupon in addition to the ECB unless you want some free candy.

      Talk to you later! Holly
