We decided to beat the storms that came through Wednesday and do a rush shopping trip to a few stores.  I went to CVS first to see about a great hair care deal and then to Bi-Lo.

At CVS everyone is getting coupons from the coupon center for Pantene & Head Shoulders.  Pair those with coupons from last weeks newspaper and you’ll get 5 bottles for $4 after rewards back.  I had some ECB from a few weeks ago so we paid absolutely nothing and still got back the $5 reward.

(3) Pantene Hair Care, 3 for $12
(2) Head & Shoulders Hair Care, 2 for $12
-$3/2 Head and Shoulders CVS coupon printing at coupon center
-$2/3 Pantene products, CVS coupon printing at coupon center
-$5/3 Pantene products, excl 6.7 oz and trial size, PG 04/02
-$5/2 Head & Shoulders 380 ml/12.8 oz +, PG 04/02
-$1 ECB that came in home mailer
-$8 ECB from few weeks ago
Total Due: nothing!
Got Back: $5 ECB

I love when things we already use can cost absolutely nothing!

While Bi-Lo wasn’t quite as thrilling at CVS, we did get great savings on a number of items.  They have a lot of extra Plenti Points offers running, and a number of deals with great coupons available this week.

Total Purchase Value: $138.25
Total Spent: $56.92
Total Saved: $81.33 or 59% off
Plenti Points Back: 805 (=$8.05 off)

I also had $4 in mobile apps that we submitted when we got home.  Between the apps and points earned that put us back under budget, but a great week even without them.
