    • pharmSCgirl

      I had 2 coupons print out with my reciept today which never usually happens for me. One was $4 off any tums 24+ count. Used it tonight and bought the tums 24ct pack that was $2.79 and got $1.21 extra off of my purchase. I also got a $2 off Nivea Body Wash coupon which comes in super handy for this weeks Nivea deal so I can match a store coupon with a mfr coupon. Other people may be getting the same coupons. I also scanned my card to get coupons for $1 off 2 gold emblem products and $2 off a $10 purchase of CVS brand products.

      • Susan

        I can’t find the Nivea bodywash coupon on this link. Do I need a different zip code?

        • pharmSCgirl

          The coupon may have ran out of prints. I can’t remember where I got it. There are a ton of $1 off coupons out there, but I know it’s not as good as having a $2 off coupon.

      • Jill

        I scanned my CVS card in the store today (at the new terminals that print coupons) and got $2 off Nivea body wash too!

      • Alicia


        I didn’t get the Nivea LIp care coupons.
        The same happened to some of you?



        • Amy B

          I didn’t get them either, i asked around to a couple of people that i know do couponing and they said they couldn’t find them. am i missing something? i had 5 inserts in the sunday paper (1/3) 2 RP, 2 SS, and then and extra.

            thanks for posting this! I just printed it for myself to use :-)

          • Savannah

            Where do I find the 4 off 20 coupon?

            • Brooke

              I’m a newbie to CVS so 2 of them were sent to me by email for signing up and getting a CVS card.

          • MonaLisa

            I have to ask.. It there not a limit on these deals you have posted? I thought most were only able to do one per deal per cvs card. How are you getting more??? Please share.

          • Jenny Q.

            I am still learning, but don’t understand the 1st transaction. How do you get back the ecb’s? I didn’t see anything for soyjoy or oust?

            • Tanya

              They are part of the bonus day deals that are listed on a separate post. The soy joy deal has a limit of 6.

          • Brooke

            Aggh! The Nivea body wash isn’t $4.99 like Jenny said. It’s $6.99.

            • traci

              It was 6.99 at my CVS also.

            • Jenny

              Sorry :( I used there website to get an idea on the price.

            • Susan

              It was $7.39 at my store! (St. Aug. Fl). I was relieved to have a $2 CVs coupon to stack with my $2 man. Still a good deal, but a price shocker. I had to re-vamp my plan. :)

            • AKelly

              It was $5.99 at ours. The oil wash was $6.99. I still used it for the deal. I really like the stuff.

      • Sabrina

        Please Please share how to accomplish this!

    • cici

      I am unable to “check the boxes” to create a list to print. Can someone help me out with this?? thanks!

      • Amy

        Sometimes I have to hit the “create printable shopping list” FIRST and then the boxes will come up for me to check. Try that. Then you hit “print list” at the bottom.

      • deedee

        Click on the title, which takes you to the actual page, rather than just perusing it from the home page.

    • Rena

      Thanks,I gave my nivea body washes away at Christmas so I am glad to see I can get me one by rolling my cvs bucks.

    • Mika

      I went to print the SoftSoap Ensembles $2 off coupon and it takes me to the page where I then click on the $2 off coupon. However, the next page says $1 off and the coupon prints $1 off. Anyone else having this issue?

      • pharmSCgirl

        I’m getting the same thing. I think the $2 off promotion has ended and now it’s just $1 off. I don’t really know if it’s worth doing the deal or not now.

        • Carrie

          I was hopeful and printed it anyways thinking it might be a typo on their end but no. Oh well, it will come back around eventually! :)

    • pharmSCgirl

      $1 off Colgate Total coupon in the new Reinventing Beauty magazine. This is a mfr coupon.

    • teri

      What zip do you use to get the nivea coupon or has it expired?

      • Luwina

        Let me know if you need 1. I have an extra body wash coupon.

      • Tonya

        I was wondering what zip code as well – it didn’t show up on mine.

        • Luwina

          I use 33624

          • Susan

            Still got nothing!

    • mandie

      My Vocal Point Pantene q’s expired 12/31/09. :(

      • kelli

        Mine did too. I used them this week at Rite Aid.

        • Jessica

          Do you think we could get away with using the VP q’s??? I was crushed when I realized this!!

          • Although it’s unlikely that they’ll accept them, it couldn’t hurt to ask the cashier and/or manager but I wouldn’t try to just sneak them through.

    • pharmSCgirl


      There was a deal going on this week for:
      $2 ECB wyb Colgate Total Advanced Toothpaste @ $2.99
      This coming week there’s a deal for:
      $2 ECB wyb (2) Colgate Total, MaxFresh or MaxWhite $2.50

      If I shop on Saturday night after they have already activated the next weeks deals, which ECB would apply on the Colgate Total?

      • I *think* you would get the cheaper price of $2.50/ea and the $2ecb for buying one. I *think*. But don’t hold me to it! :)

      • Jenn

        In my experience, you would get the “new” sale.

    • My Pantene Vocal Point q’s expired yesterday. :(

    • Amanda

      Does anyone know if the Huggies will be the pure and natural type or the plain ones?? (just thought I would ask since the Pure and Natural has $3.00 off coupons vs. the $1.50)

      • I’ve never seen a CVS that carries Pure and Natural, I’ve only seen them at Rite Aid.

      • Same for me — my CVS doesn’t have the Pure & Natural, but Rite Aid does.

      • Stacie

        Walmart has had pure and naturals for 8.88 for a while there- so you could get them for 5.88. Not a big Walmart shopper, but good deal if you prefer that kind.

    • D

      anyone have a working zipcode for the huggies diapers?

      • Beth

        I used 29205

        • Beth

          Correction: the Huggies coupon was from Target, so no zip code needed!

    • Shandrika

      Does anyone know where to find the Nivea body wash coupon online?

    • Cindy

      The 5 dollar off $30 is still working if you take the medicare quiz. The expiration date is Jan. 15th.

    • Jennifer

      Have you stopped doing the deal scenarios at the bottom? I noticed you didn’t do them last week or this week…I’m lost…lol

      • Chrissy

        There a couple of Deal Ideas posted in the list, but they’re not at the bottom.
        There;s one about the Pantene and the other is about the Nivea.

      • Jenny

        I’m just cutting back a little for the holidays. Since this list was done on New Years Eve and Christmas eve, making deals was low priority :) I’ll try to get some up before tonight though.

        • Jennifer

          I don’t blame you there! I look forward to your scenarios, they are so helpful. Thanks for all you do!

    • tlrob1266

      i cant find the johnson rebate form? help

    • Melinda

      Does anyone know if the $3.00 off “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” circulating online is a legal coupon or not. It looks different and states that it must be an original.

      • Jenny

        The one linked in this weeks Walgreens post at least is legal. They were distributed through Chucky Cheese emails but are approved by the film distributor.

        • Melinda

          Thanks Jenny!

      • AmyG

        where did you get this coupon. I would like to get it too!

    • Brandie

      I have a $10 coupon or the ACCU-CHECK Aviva System. Is this not the same monitor that is on sale?

      • Virginia

        No. The Accu-check system that is on sale is the ‘Compact Plus’ model – they are different items made by the same company.

        • dee

          my cvs took the accu check coupon they said it was no problem that it didnt match i did it twice

    • Amanda

      I’m not sure if the Nivea will work the same for everyone else as it did for me (I get a discount) but I did
      (3) Nivea Lip
      (1) Nivea Body Lotion
      and I used coupons for
      (1)BOGO Lip
      (1)Buy Three Lips get One Lotion Free

      In essence I paid for two lips and got one lip and one lotion free. I ended up paying under four dollars and got five ECBs back.

      • Laura

        I did this scenario at Rite Aid a few weeks ago, but paid a little more since I got the Firming lotion instead of the regular. It was still a killer deal though! :)

        • MonaLisa

          I went to Rite Aid yesterday and got 16 nivea lip products for the price of one (Tax) they are buy one get one and I used 8 b1 get 1 lip nivea lip to get all for the price of tax. :)

      • Natalie

        what was the date for the buy 3 lips get 1 lotion?

    • Amy

      There’s a Target manufacturer’s coupon for $1.50 off the purchase of any GE lighting product.

      • Joanne

        There’s also a $1 off GE Energy Smart in today’s (1/3) SS coupons.

      • Wendy

        I am having trouble printing the Target logo coupons. Basically they won’t print. It keeps asking to install the software to pring the coupons but it never does. Anyone else have that problem?

        • Meredith Smith

          I had them same problem, but after restarting my computer a couple times – it finally worked.

      I’m not looking forward to this week at CVS but I am really excited about my trip this evening. I bought 2 Dawn Hands Renewal, 2 Ivory bar soaps, 4 bottles of Nature’s Bounty, and 1 bottle of Biore face wash. I used $28 in coupons and had a subtotal of negative 6 cents! total was $1.09 and I got $9 in extra bucks back!

      I also went to Rite Aid tonight and saved $93.92. I only spent $1.24 oop!!

      • Could you share how you saved so much money at Rite Aid? I pretty much have CVS down pat, but I haven’t ventured out into couponing at rite aid.

        • kelli

          This is only week 2 of Rite Aid for me. I was a little scared to start but since CVS is super easy to me at this point, I decided to give it a try… and Rite Aid is right across the street from CVS here, so it’s super easy to hit both stores.

          I did 3 transactions this week.

          Transaction 1:
          1 Gillette Fusion razor = $7.99
          2 bottles of Pantene = $3 each
          5 Soy Joy bars = $.60 each
          1 box of Kotex tampons = $2.99
          – $5/$20
          – $4 off Gillette Fusion
          – (2) $2 off Pantene
          – $1 off 4 Soy Joy bars
          – $1 off any Kotex product
          OOP: $5.66
          Saved: $25.93

          Will get back:
          $2 for Gillete Fusion
          $3 for Soy Joy
          $2 for Kotex

          Transaction 2 & 3:
          2 bags of M&Ms = $2.50 each
          2 4-packs of Benevia = $8.99 BOGO
          2 bottles of Nature’s Bounty = $9.99 BOGO
          1 $1 filler
          – $5/$20
          – (2) $5 off Benevia
          – (2) $5 off Nature’s bounty
          OOP: $.62
          Saved: $46.96

          • Thanks for posting! I may have to look into shopping at Rite Aid, but I didn’t even get a sales paper for Rite Aid or Walgreens in my paper today. CVS has become my favorite store to shop at, but I’d love to add another one to the list.

            • kelli

              CVS used to be my favorite… I always wanted to try Rite Aid but I wasn’t sure about it because the 2-3 times I asked about the SCR in the store, I was told that it’s Rite Aid money and you have to spend it in the store and that just didn’t seem worth it to me but I’ve been told by several people who shop at Rite Aid all of the time that the check is a real check and can be deposited in your checking account. So, I decided to give it a try and I’ve done pretty well so far. :)

    • I went to CVS tonight to do deals from this past week and upcoming week. It was such a headache because a lot of my ECBs didn’t print so I had to get the manager to print them out. I also messed up by using the few cents left on my gift card before handing the cashier the ECBs, which was my fault. It was just such a headache. I ended up paying more out of pocket than I had originally intended to, but I still got a lot for less than $5.00. I’m posting my scenarios on my new blog which is linked to my name.

    • Gabi

      I got the paper in early today so I could get my coupons and head to CVS before church. There were NO coupons for the Loreal Everpure in the paper, so I printed one from the link Jenny posted. I don’t know that I’ll be able to use it, it’s for EverPURE only, and the sales ad is for EverSTRONG only. Will see at the store I guess.

    • Nathan

      Argh! My RedPlum (News Observer – Raleigh, NC) didn’t have the Nivea coupons! *sighs*

      • Ashley

        Mine either! Greenville News – Greenville, SC

        • Li

          chalreston post & courier too!
          missing one smartsource whole thing!
          and….it was the one with the electrasol coupon $2.50 off
          is there any way to get these that we are shorted ???

          • marym

            Same here in chattanooga, but that’s par for the course. It seems like we hardly EVERY have all the inserts.

      • kelli

        None in the Roanoke Times (Virginia) either… we had them last time. :(

        • leslie

          same thing for the winston salem paper in nc

      • Mandy

        Got two newspapers and no Nivea coupons in either!
        Columbia, SC

    • Ashley

      Anyone else having trouble finding the $5 off Acnefree printable? When I click the link I only find a $1 off. My CVS has the sensitive skin system for clearance $9.99 so it would be free after $5 cpn and ECB. I was hoping to get it! Thanks.

    • The State Paper was missing a ton of coupons, including the Nivea and many many more. I was even missing a whole Smart Source Insert. I’m thinking about making a trip to Rock Hill or Charlotte for the Charlotte Observer.

    • julie

      Anyone know where Ashley got the $2 CVS Nivia coupon? She says she will use a Mfg and a CVS coupon for it. Thanks!

      • Amy

        When I went to CVS this morning there is a new scanner at the end of an aisle. The cashier told me to scan my EC Card and it the machine gave me a $2 Nivea coupon and my quarterly ECBs! Pretty neat!

        • julie

          Ahh, thanks Amy. What a bummer, that coupon thingie at my CVS has been broken for 2 weeks. :-(

          • Ashley

            Mine printed out on my reciept from a purchase from last week.

          • Carrie

            I don’t know if this is the same situation or not BUT, check the machine to see what kind of message is on front. A month or so ago the machine at one of our CVS’s appeared to be broken although there was some small print eluding to paper failure. After being told by a store employee that it was broken, I simply asked if the message meant the paper was out, and behold… they checked it and had to put a new paper roll in it. Doesn’t hurt to ask! :)

        • Courtney

          i just started shopping at CVS and don’t know all the lingo yet. what are quarterly ECB’s?

    • Shannon in ATL

      Not finding the Scott coupon?

    • Linda in Atlanta

      Found another $2 Q for L’Oreal EverPure shampoo, conditioner or treatment in the 10/18 RP (expires 1/10)!

    • Joan

      Did anyone get the Nivea coupons today? I got 5 inserts in my paper (Charleston, Post and Courier), but no Nivea coupons to be found. I was waiting on my CVS trip to use those. Did anyone have any luck?

      • Jenny

        I didn’t get them either. I also didn’t get the Reach or Stayfree coupons that correspond with the Walgreens sales this week. I’m pretty disappointed.

      • Tanya

        I got them in the Atlanta paper

      • Binkle

        I didn’t get them either.

      • AKelly

        Sorry you guys missed out. We often do. But our Richmond Times Dispatch had these. (Virginia)

      • Stacy

        The AJC had them!

      • Natalie

        tallahassee democrat had them

    • Wendy

      I am still learning. When CVS says limit of 1 or 3, etc., is this per card per the sale period or per transaction? Thanks.

      • kelli

        if it’s a deal that you get extra bucks with, the limit is per card. if it’s a sale price, for example a bogo deal, the limit is per transaction…. at least this is the way that it’s been for me in the past.

    • Arika

      Ashley, Thank you so much for your deal post on here I am new to the couponing and “CVSing” world and im I am trying to figure out how you got back the $9 ECB on your 1st transaction you listed in your post. I’m sure it was on the Oust spray but it isn’t listed in the CVS flyer. Is there an ECB deal on the Oust? Or can anyone else tell me? Thanks!

      • These ECBs do come from the Oust. That deal along with many other ones aren’t in the sales ad instead they are on many of the packages. If you click the CVS link at the top, the deals are posted under CVS Bonus Days Deals. I hope this helps!

        • MonaLisa

          FYI I went to CVS yesterday and tried to do the oust deal wit the coupons listed and the computer would not take both thebuy one get one AND the 2.00 printable. I had to pick witch to use. I DID GET THE ECB though.

    • There is a $1.50 off any GE lighting product on the Target website. Overage . . . I think =)!

    • Yacoomba

      Got an awesome deal today for the Nivea(buy $10 and get $5 ECB). I already had a $2 off Nivea body wash coupon that printed on my CVS receipt. I bought the Bodywash, 2 Nivea lip care items, and the GE light bulb. Using my $6 in ECB I already had, $2 CVS Nivea coupon, B1G1 Free Nivea Lip care, and the $1 off GE coupon- I paid a little over $2 OOP. I got back $7 ECB total-woo hoo. It feels good saving money and getting quality products!!!!

    • AKelly

      Just wanted to alert everyone to watch their ECBs. I did the Nivea deal (bought one $5.99 body wash and 2 lip items at $2.99 each) I used the $2 off the Bodywash and B1G1 lip coupons. When I got to the van, I noticed my $5 ECBs had not printed and the receipt said I only had $8.98 towards the Nivea deal. In essence the B1G1 coupon registered as my not having paid the other $2.99. I had my son run back in, and the cashier went ahead and gave him the $5 ECB. However, had I not looked, I would’ve lost out. Just an FYI. Thanks, Jenny! Got lotsa stuff today for really cheap! I shoulda done 3 transactions, but as it was a bit hectic, I opted for 2 with more OOP than I would’ve liked. Started with $12 ECBs, spent $9 OOP, left with $14 ECBs and a big bagful of goodies. Love your site!!

      • JennDoll

        Mine did the same thing with the ECB and the cashier (who acted like a manager, but wasn’t wearing a tag, so I’m not sure) refused to give me the ECBs! I’m not sure, though, if it was because of the coupon or because the Nivea lip products I bought were not included. It didn’t make much sense to me and the guy was starting to be a little rude, so I dropped it. Major bummer!

    • Michelle

      Ok somebody help me with this calculating stuff. I calculate down to the penny so I can have my change ready when I go up to check out, but I’m only right about 50% of the time.

      Will somebody go through this and see where I did it wrong?

      2 cans Oust 3.99 ea = $7.98
      1 GE bulb $2.99

      subtotal = 10.97
      tax 8%
      total = 10.97 x 1.08 = $11.85

      -1/1 GE bulb
      -2/2 Oust
      -6 ECB
      -2 ECB

      total OOP = $0.85

      However, it didn’t ring up 85 cents…it rang up 37 cents!!

      I know those were the prices; how does the cash register logic work different than my logic?

      The second transaction I did was with the same procedure, it rang up exactly as I calculated. The cashier couldn’t figure it out either.

      • Michelle

        btw the order I handed the coupons in was ECB’s first, then man q’s

      • Virginia

        Was the $6.00 ECB one that was manually printed? Manually printed ECBs work like a store-coupon and tax is not charged on those amounts. If you look at the math, you were not charged tax on $6.00 that you thought you were going to be charged tax on.

        2 oust 7.98
        1 GE 2.99
        = 10.97
        -6.00 ecb
        = 4.97
        + tax (8%)
        = 5.37

        -2.00 ecb
        -1.00 ge
        -2.00 oust

        = $0.37

        • Michelle

          Very interesting…the 6 ECB was printed from the machine for my quarterly…I was extremely surprised when that happened, but aside from that-I understand now…thanks so much!

        • Sharon

          Virginia, YOU ROCK!! I am so impressed with how smart the people on this message board are. I also LOVE to see Women helping other Women.

      • kelli

        I’ve notice that even though most extra bucks will not pay a portion of the tax, they will sometimes reduce the amount of tax owed. I’m not sure if there’s any formula to figure out how this works but I do know that my fiance and I have done the same transaction on several occasions but paid with different extra bucks and our totals are always different. For example, on Sunday, we bought the exact same stuff, used the same coupons but…

        he used: $10, $5, $3.98, $1 ecbs
        and I used: $5.98, $3.99, $3.98, $3.98, $2 ecbs

        he spent $.37 and I sent $.85 oop.

    • Natalie

      my ad has all detergent $3.99 and I still have 1 of the -$2 coupons from a couple weeks ago that exp 1/10; makes for a decent deal

    • Elizabeth

      I went last night and didn’t see or get the $5 for P&G products. any insights?

      • Amy B.

        Its only for the specific items Jenny listed.

    • Lynne cobb

      I tried the “3 OUST” deal yesterday, but you can’t use both coupons unless you get 4 cans.

      • Ashley

        Worked out fine for me. Do it all the time.

        • MonaLisa

          did not work for me either an the cashier even told me I had enough items in purchase.

    • Jean

      I’d like other opinions before I spend money–I have coupons for $2/1 Aleve, in the sale flyer for 7.99 (80-100ct.) and $3/2 Tylenol Cold, on sale for $6 each. I will definitely use these items, and have a couple of $3 off 15s, but are these the best prices, or should I save the coupons for a better deal? I noticed they weren’t listed in the good deals Jenny posted above. I’m a newbie :) Thanks for any help!

      • Anne Marie

        I would do this deal I found on another blog at Publix if you have one near you.

        Aleve 24-ct $3.51

        $5/2 Publix Coupon (in the green advantage flyer)

        $1/1 Aleve product – 10-25-09 RP and 01-03-10 SS

        Buy two Aleve at $7.02
        Use $5/2 Publix Green Advantage Flier coupon
        and (2) $1/1 MQs

        • Jean

          Thanks! No Publix here though :( I’ve heard they are great.

    • Natalie

      Alisha posted this link in the bonus days replies, another $5 off $20!!!


    • Melissa

      I am new to all of this and was hoping someone could help me figure out the best way to purchase the following… I have 5 ECB’s from last week.

      Oust (4)
      Glade fabric spray
      Johnson and Johnson Head to toe wash
      Proctor and Gamble Deal

      I tried to work it out a couple of times, but I am terrible at math…maybe after a couple of trips I will figure it out. Thanks in advance for any help….

    • kelli

      I had such a strange trip to CVS today. I went in and spent $10 in coupons (one $5/$30 and one $5/$20), $44 in extra bucks, and $2.54 OOP ($1.39 was tax)…. and I got back ZERO extra bucks! this never happens!

      I did save $219.68 though, so that felt pretty good. I’m really not used to spending so many extra bucks and getting nothing back though.

      • Paula

        I learned yesterday that you really need to know how much you’re spending and how many ecb’s you expect to get back. I bought a 56 pack of kotex for $10.99…had a $1.00 coupon…was supposed to get $3.00 ecb’s back. It didn’t print! I didn’t realize there was a sticker on the bag explaining this so went back to the aisle…found the sticker…went back to the register & told the cashier who printed out my ecb’s. Lesson learned! What a lot of work this couponing is!

        • kelli

          I usually have everything planned out to the penny (minus tax) and I always know how many ECBs I’m supposed to be getting. This was a very strange trip to me because I was buying all xmas clearance, so no ECBs back. I bought a few presents for next year, some marked down candy, and a few presents for my fiance’s birthday at the end of the month. It was a great deal for the $44 ECBs.

    • Anyone having trouble getting the $5 off $20 to print? I’ve tried a couple of different things, and it’s only printing half the coupon.

      • Melissa

        I can’t get it either. I have several “half” coupons too…

        • Alisha

          Hi Melissa…that is what I thought at first,too…Just scroll to the right and you should be able to see the entire coupon to print it out.

      • Lil

        Has anyone used the $5 off $20? I noticed it is from a Fresno, CA ad and I am in the FL panhandle.

        • Courtney

          i’m in northern MO and they worked fine. this paper has had the 5/20 cvs q every week for the last month, i think. i have been using 3-4 a week!

          • Courtney,

            Do you have to print the $5 off $20 coupons from the Fresno, CA ad early in the week? I printed some earlier this week and now I went back to the link to try to print some more and I cannot get to it. I’m wondering if they remove the ad after a certain day. I know the q expire tomorrow 1/9/10 but I wanted to use one or two more between now and then.

        • Jennifer

          I used it in Greenville SC with NO problem!!!

        • Natalie

          I used it in Tally, FL in both CVS and Publix

    • Sue

      Watch your emails! Yesterday I got an email from CVS asking me to participate in a short survey. I did participate and today I received a coupon for $5 ECBs! According to the email, if I had not been eligible for the survey, I would still have gotten $2 ECBs just for participating. It was only a few questions and took about 2 minutes! Hope they send me more!

    • Melissa

      Went to 4 CVS’s in Anderson today and none had the Oust or the Glade, also the Johnson and Johnson Head to toe body wash doesn’t have any ECB with it. I ended up not getting anything, maybe I’ll try again in a couple of days.

      • Susie

        The Johnson’s Head to Toe body wash was located with all of the “extra deals” products. I originally went to the one in the baby isle, but that one didn’t have the ECB with it. I found another bottle with the extra deals that had a free sample attached to it. That one had the ECBs on it.

        • Melissa

          Thanks!!! I’ll try again tomorrow.

    • Nicole

      ok my trip completely sucked!!…my store didnt get the soyjoys and i didnt get my 5 ecbs for the spend $20 get $5 loreal deal and they said it was because everything changed 2010 that you have to SPEND $20 OOP to get that ecb to print ANYONE ELSE HAVING THIS PROBLEM???

      • Natalie

        I did not spend 10 OOP and my 5ECB from nivea printed in Tally, FL

    • just a heads-up that my CVS on Bolton Road in West Midtown, Atlanta has all holiday goodies at 90% off! this stuff makes for GREAT filler items!

    • Allison

      my trip was “ok”…..spent more OOP then i had planned.
      did a few dif transactions…..but they were crowded b/c of the snow we are getting – and the cashier was annoyed i wanted to do so many transactions and i screwed up my “plan”.

      J&J wash x 2
      Nivea washes x 2
      Total = 13.98 OOP

      Oust x 2
      J&J wash x 1
      cheez its x 1
      75% off xmas tissue paper (filler)
      J&J easy grip bar (filler)
      Total = 0.67 OOP

      Pantene x 3
      SoyJoy x 3
      Total = 19.21 OOP

      $23 ECB still left to spend!!!

      they were out of the nivea lip stuff and the light bulbs – DARN!

    • Trish

      I’m kinda new at CVSing. Our closest CVS is 40 minutes away. I went today and was a bit disappointed to find that most of what I was going to buy was already sold out. I ended up with a great deal though.

      1 accu check compact meter
      2 gold emb candy
      6 rolls of Christmas paper

      paid with 9.99 ECB and .40 OOP
      got $10.00 ECB back

      $58.78 for $.40 I was excited.

    • Just a warning to always check SS before shopping!

      I went off the ad since I knew where the coupons were. I did great since I had $6 in ECB – got 2 jugs of All and a jumbo pack of Huggies for less than $5. BUT

      I told DH to swipe his card first and gave him an extra Huggies coupon because we haven’t got a $5/$25 coupon in a while and if we got one then a second pack of Huggies would only be 88 cents after coupons. He forgot. Now I’m noodling around here and see the $5 of $20 coupon. And it’s an item we buy weekly! Lesson learned!
