CVS Shopping Trip 4/10/12

Its been awhile since I posted a shopping trip.  I thought I would share this one especially to my new readers who may not realize how much I save on some of my CVS trips.

TIP: Read the new CVS coupon policy.  See it HERE!

Monday I went to CVS to pick up a prescription and I got a $4 off a $20 purchase coupon at checkout!  Plus, I got my CVS Extracare Bucks (ECBs) for the Winter Spending which is $2.   I checked my coupons and realized I have an Extracare Buck that will expire on 4/10/12, so a perfect idea to go again today.  I had a total of$11 worth of ExtraCare Bucks to spend.

TIP:  Always scan your CVS card at the Red Coupon machine located near the cashier BEFORE you shop so you can see if you have some good coupons to use on your trip. Plus you get any of your Winter spending Extracare bucks so you can use them right away.  More information HERE!
