CVS Shopping Trip 6/20/10

First let me say Happy Father’s Day!   My hubby had a great day staying at home getting things done that HE wanted to.  I got to spend the day with my daughter and my parents.  It was a very busy and hot day in NOVA.

I was lucky enough to get out and stop at CVS all by myself.  My daughter definitely isn’t the age to understand going to store and waiting Mommy to get her transactions straight.

Here are the two transactions I did today with 2 different cards.

At the CRT Red coupon machine I got a $4/$20 coupon!
A week or so ago I also got a CRT for the $3 off a box of Huggies with that same card.

I bought 1 Huggies Snug and Dry diapers size 5 – 70 diapers.

My second transaction was the following:

Zyrtec deals at Rite Aid

Before I crash into bed.  It’s been a long day.  It’s been a long week for that matter.  There are so many posts that I want to write about but so little time.   I can’t wait to chat about gardening and what we did last weekend.  Plus, today I got my library book about “Square Foot Gardening“!

The other day my co-worker brought in for me the Rite Aid ad.  I don’t usually get it in my Washington Post coupon section so I always check some of the other blogger sites that I like to visit to see about some of the good deals.  The ad this week had some great deals including these “triple coupons”, which I had never seen before.   My store was out of them the first day they said.

Then after looking closely Rite Aid currently has 2 promotions on allergy medication.   Both of these promotions last for several weeks but this week looks to have some of the best scenarios to get some cheap or maybe FREE Zyrtec after coupons, rebates and sales.   I know this is a little late since tomorrow is Saturday but for those that have your coupons well organized try and get some of these deals while you can.  Remember you can ask for rainchecks if they are out of something.

Check out ThisBeautifulFrugalLife and Bounty and Savings for all of the scoop.

My suggestion:

Transaction #1

2 Zyrtec gel 25 ct $18.99 each

2 ($4 printable coupons)

$5/$20 adperks coupon

OOP $24.98  (Remember to use your FSA card if you have one)

Transaction #1

2 Zyrtec gel 25 ct $18.99 each

2 ($4 printable coupons)

$5/$20 adperks coupon

OOP $24.98  (Remember to use your FSA card if you have one)

Total $4.96 after SCR #552 $25 gc and Zyrtec and Benadryl $20 certificate

I also got the NeilMed Nasal Cleaner for $6.99 after using a $3 Adperks coupons and it qualifies towards the #552 rebate.
