CVS has a couple of great deals this week:
- Buy $20 of select Bounty, Charmin and Duracell products and get $10 in ECBs.
- Buy $20 of select Pampers products and get $5 in ECBs.
I didn't realize that my ECBs were going to print as a total of $15 instead of separate ECBs of $10 and $5. It messed up my planned transactions, and I even had to abort my first modified transaction because the store was out of the Oral B toothbrushes that are free after ECBs this month. But, I got what I needed and didn't have to spend a cent out of pocket since I have a gift card that I acquired for filling a prescription, so I can't complain. Here's how my transaction went:
2 Swiffer refills, $6.99 each - $13.98
2 Lysol wipes, $3.49 each - $6.98
2 Dawn, 2/$2 - $2
Coupons: $4 off $20 purchase CVS coupon, $1 off 2 Swiffer, $1 off 2 Lysol & 2 25-cents off Dawn
Out of pocket: $1.58 (on gift card)
ECBs received: $5 for Swiffer, $1 for Dawn
It wasn't a great transaction, since I lost $9 in ECBs, but we really needed the wipes (to clean the potties) and I didn't want to miss the Swiffer deal. And I was lucky enough to win a $10 CVS gift card from My Good Cents, and the $25 gift card that I ordered through MyPoints finally came, so I could afford to burn some ECBs. (I'll publish a review of MyPoints next week over at Chief Family Officer.)
What I really love about playing The Drugstore Game is that I can really stretch my dollars. And thanks to ECBs and gift cards, I'll be buying a lot of things my family needs for free!
