what can $10 OOP get you?

Okay so tomorrow is Brad’s birthday.  The only place with Edy’s IC on sale was CVS …how sad.  I HAD to go to CVS!

So I started this week with 10 ECB and got all of this using 3 transactions.  I only paid $9.63 Out Of Pocket (OOP), used 27ECB and $25.75 in Qn’s ($10 good only at CVS!)    The only bad thing is that “Brad” is out of ECB.  I used the last 10 accumulated on the Ice Cream, Cherry Cokes & Pringles…

  • Transaction #1 went like this:

2 Dove Deodorant-2 for $7/ got back 2 ECB,

had 2/$2 off Qn= $1. for 2 after Qn & ECB

1 Crest toothpaste  $1.99-.75 Qn- 1ECB=.24

1 Almay mascara $5.99-$1. Qn-4Ecb=$.99

Ester C vitamin C BOGO@$10.79-$2. Qn= 2 for $8.79

Had 10ECB from last week, also had $5./off $20. purchase

after Qn’s, ECB +tax paid $4.63 OOP

got back 7ECB

  • Trans #2:

2 Gatorade=$2.50 -1 Qn’s =$1.50

3 True North Nuts= $9.-$2.Qn’s $7.00

3 Stacy Pita Chips=$9. -&2.Qn= $7.00

Also used $5/0ff $20 purchase Qn

7Ecb from previous transaction =

$4.00 OOP

got back 10 ECB

also plan on filing a rebate from PepsiCo for $7.50

so above will be completely free!

  • Transaction #3:

BOGO EDY’s Ice Cream@ $5.99

2 cherry cokes = $2.98 – $1. Qn’s $1.98

2 Pringles=$4.58 -$2. Qn’s= $2.58

Used above Qn’s + 10 ECB =

$.99 OOP

no ECB left for next week, but got ice cream and lots of other stuff for $10 of real money.  Yes I know many of these items can be had for cheaper, but when playing with “monopoly” money sometimes you pay a higher price just to work the system.  Where else could I have gotten all of the above items for only $10 OOP?  Even with my $15 in Qn’s?
