Very late in the game CVS shop. Not sure how I missed them having so many good deals this last week. I wasn't even planning to go at all this week, but then I figured I'd take a look at next weeks sale and if it looked good I'd run to CVS tonight where I could get last and next weeks' at the same time. Save me a trip later. That was when I found out last week had some really good sales, and next weeks aren't so great.

The PF Bronzers and Blush were on sale for $6.00 off, I found some for $10.99, so $4.99 after sale. Used the $5.00 pdf to get free.

The Oral-B toofbrushes were $2.99, get .99 ECB, limit 2. There was a $2.00 mq in the 4/3 PG insert, and a BOGO mq from the 3/13 RP, so I paid .99 for 2, and got back $1.98 (except I got back $2.00 because the ECB didn't print, they had to manually print and it rounded up to $2.00)

The Crest deal was rinse, tp, or floss $3.49, get $2.50 ECB, limit 2. There were $1.00 mq in the 4/03 PG.

And the Snickers were 2/$1, so free after $1/2 from 4/10 RP.

They were out of the Right Guard Body Wash ($3.88, get $3.00 ECB, use BOGO and $1.00 peelie to get 2 for free), Complete Contact Solution (8.99, free after ECB, use $1.00 mq from 4/3 SS = $1.00 mm), Gold Bond Body Wash ($5.88, get $3.00 ECB, use $2.00 4/03 SS ?I think? - .88 cost), and the Gum Eeze Flossers ($2.00, fre after ECB).

I got RCs for all those.

For next week there's a 3-day sale, Sunday - Tuesday:
Russell Stover singles .74, free after ECB
Magic Bubbles (or some kind of bubbles, I forget) 16 oz. $1.99, free after ECB.

There's an Airwick/Lysol deal that's supposed to be good, I don't have the details so check to see if it's listed at (or another blog more informative than mine), but the deal is get $10 ECB wyb $20; these Kit things are $6.00 each, and there's a $4.00 printable at So I guess you buy (3) and some $2.00 item, hopfully you have a coupon for the $2.00 item....Anyway.

There's also a drink deal: get $1.00 ECB wyb 3/$4 Vitaminwater, Fuze, Smartwater, Honest Tea, 2 Ltr. Coke...I think that's all I saw posted, but I saw Powerade marked for the deal at the store. There were hangtags for $1.00/3 Vitaminwater, Smartwater, and Fuze, and then $1/3 tearpads on the fridge door for Powerade.
So that would be $2/3, or about .66 each, after coupon and ECB.

Card 1:
$5.50 ECBs Spent
$0.47 + 1.50 tax = $1.97 oop
$8.50 ECBs Earned
= $1.03 profit
Saved $43.09

Card 2:
$6.00 ECBs Spent
$0.00 +1.61 tax = $1.60 oop (found a penny on the floor)
$7.50 ECBs Earned
= $.10 cost
Saved $38.34

I have been slowly learning how to use coupons and it amazes me how many of you work out such great deals. I hope to soon be able to work out a system with our local stores to get these deals.

Slowly is the best way to start.

I spent alot of time reading the Tutorials at Southern Savers, and lots and lots of comments and message board posts, before I ever even stepped foot in the first store. Then I tackled them one at a time, learning how it worked before I added another.

BTW, I don't work out many deals on my own; mostly I copy them from Shopper Blogs like Southern Savers and Iheartpublix, Iheartkroger, IheartCVS, IheartWags, and IheartRiteAid. About half of the deals come out of the Comments to Posts section.
