CVS Sunday: 5/01/11

I love CVS! Here's how my shopping went today...

Firstly, I admit to being a tad bummed that my CVS store was out of the Bic Soleil Shimmers ($6.99 - 3 ECB's - $3.00 coupon = $0.99), and Ivory soap 3-packs ($0.99 - $1.00 coupon = FREE, and I have 7 coupons!). The helpful fellow who rang me up thanked me for being so organized, and asked if I might check back on Wednesday to see if the items had been re-stocked, and if not they could issue a rain check at that point. In the spirit of promoting good couponer-merchant relations I cheerfully agreed, although it wasn't the best "business" decision. Always a good thing to have a rain check on hand, even if the item turns up "in stock" during the sale period, as CVS rain checks never expire. But I digress...

The 25% off your entire transaction coupon didn't amount to more than a buck and a quarter since it apparently only applied to non-sale items. Same with the 10% off your entire beauty purchase coupon. I didn't use the latter because they couldn't be used on the same transaction. Plus, it also applied only to non-sale items, and I almost never buy them.

Many thanks to Simply CVS and Coupon Mom for your great lists and matchups. Here's what I came up with this week. Best of luck to you, and happy CVSing!

  1. Wow you got a lot of stuff for really good prices! I love CVS and how they seem to love giving us free things and sometimes even paying us to take them :) Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi, Jessica! I love them, too. You know how it is when somebody you barely know seems to really like you, but you don't know why and you don't quite feel worthy? That's how I feel about CVS.

    Can't wait to check out your trip. Wait, are those Aussie products I see? ;-)

  3. Haha good comparison! I look forward to my CVS trip all week long because I love it so much! Can't believe I didn't start this sooner!
