In 2011, I would like to share more of my store trips. If you are new, hopefully this will give you encouragement to start or keep with it because many of my trips will be very simple for anyone to accomplish.
CVS is one of my favorite stores – that I haven’t really shopped at in awhile. Why? Because my stockpile has been so plentiful that I haven’t really needed too. I don’t want to appear to be one of those really freaky extreme couponer people! :)
Not having any coupons with me but wanting to go ahead and get some Extra Bucks going, this is the deal I did at CVS today for just $9.87 + sales tax and I received $6 in Extra Bucks back!
(3) Powerade – $1
(1) Colgate Advance Toothpaste (Apparently, I’ve already printed out the $0.75 coupon available) – $2.99
(1) Tone Body Wash – $3.88 ($1/1 printable no longer available)
No coupons or previous Extra Bucks
Spend $9.87 out of pocket
Earned $6 in Extra Bucks for next trip!
The $9.87 is more than I would normally try to spend out of pocket with CVS. However, I feel like I’m starting fresh. You could have broke this into three smaller transactions to pay even less out of pocket! You can use my handy dandy CVS Transaction Planner (Excel File). It is old but it still works!
I’ll share my next trip to CVS, which I’m planning right now as we need toilet paper & laundry detergent – perfect for the P&G Sale going on this week!
