There were a few deals this week. Nothing was FREE, but a few things for me to work with. I started out this week with 24ECB from last week. My goal was to buy the following items and only pay tax after coupons and ECB. I am still learning, so here is how it went.
*2bottles of pantene shampoo & conditioner for $6.97
used a PG $3/0ff2 Qn
got 2 ECB back
making it $.99 each afterECB
*2 GE reveal 4 pk light bulbs for $6.00
used (2) $1.50 off Qn’s found online
got 2ECB back
making it $.50 each after ECB
*20pk Cottenelle toilet paper $12.88
used $.50 off coupon
Got 4ECB back
making it $8.38 after ECB
*Ritz 2pk crackers $6.00
used $2.00/off2 Qn found online
got back 2ECB
making it $1. a box after ECB
(please note these were 12oz boxes not 16oz,but still good price)
*2Cvs green bag tags $.99 each
1ECB back with purchase of 2
Tag is scanned each trip and on 4th trip I get 1ECB back!
Total before taxes $33.84+
$2.28 taxes =
$36.12 total –
$8.50 in Qns + 24 ECB =$32.50
$3.62 Out Of Pocket OOP!
got back $11. ECB for next week!
My mistake. ..I went in with a $5. off $30 purchase coupon for taking an CVS onlie quiz, but unfortunately I must have used it last week b/c it wouldn’t scan. So this would have been FREE other than tax. I would have had to add a few filler items to maximize the coupon, but I went in with a few extra coupons in case I needed them!
Either way I don’t think 2 bottles pantene, 2pk lightbulbs, 20pk of TP 2 pk of Ritz crackers for $3.62 is too bad. I will try and post how I got started with the ECB last week. My goal now is to keep the ECB rolling so I have less OOP to pay each trip! Next week I think I am going to flip for some soda. I’ll let you know later.
