CVS Savings

I went to CVS today and I racked up. I also had a prescription filled and had a $30 coupon for a gift card. The cashier scanned the coupon first and was suppose to scan the gift card first, the manager had to be called, he had to inturn call the corp. office and it was a mess. Then I finally got the word that the coupon was invalid because the system had already read it (it had already been scanned) and would not take it again. So they said I could use it as a $30 store credit. But, I had to use it all at one time. MAN, that stinks. So now I will use it next week. I was so diappointed, but I tried to be nice and it worked. At least he didn't refuse to do anything. He did not apologize though and it was the store's fault. I forgot to take pictures of my bargains but here's the list of my loot:

2 Colgate tb $2.99each-$.75 coupon + $2 back in ECB each
4 post Cereal bogo $3.99 each -2 $1.00 coupons
1 gal. milk $4.29- $4.00 coupon for free milk when you buy 4 post cereal
1 Gillette Venus razor $9.99 -$2 coupon + $6 ECB back
3 Covergirl powders $7.99 each -$2 coupons each + $10 ECB back
I also had a $4 off of $20 coupon

total before coupons $60.01
after coupons $33.37 and I paid with $32.00 in ECB from last trip.
I only paid $1.37 out of pocket

Next:
2 pk. Huggies diapers $8.99 each -2 $1.50 coupons
1 - 8 pk. AAA Engerizer batteries $5.29- $1 coupon
1 - 24 ct. pk. Kotex pads $2.50- $2 coupon
1 - 160 ct. Huggies wipes refills $4.99 - .75 coupon
and $15 ECB back

total before coupons $30.76
after coupons $ 23.51
I paid with $23.00 ECB from last time (not above) and was only out $0.51!!!

That means I got back $35 in ECB from the above transactions to use next time! Yay!
Savings were $88.89!

Happy CVSing!!!! Blessings!

Great savings, Marva! If you call CVS's 800# and tell them you were disappointed with the way the store handled your transaction, they will send you a $5 or $10 gift card in the mail. Just fyi. Have a great day and hug those babies!

Congrats on the savings! It's always nice to save on the every day stuff. I don't think I could ever go back to paying full price for toothpaste or shampoo. I'm addicted to CVS Extra Bucks!!

Thanks Melinda! I love to save $!
I clould never pay full price again either. I thought I use to do good using comp ads and coupons together at WalMart and then I found CVS!!!!!! What a blessing!!!

Blessings on you sweet friend!
