Deals, deals, and more deals

I guess I will just post my bargains here instead of making a new blog for now. So, I made my weekly trip to CVS tonight. Here are the things I got.

4 - 12 packs of Diet Pepsi
4 - Bottles of L'oreal Vive Shampoo
2 - Bottles of All Small & Mighty

My total before coupons, discounts, and Extra Care Bucks was: $52.10

After ECBs ($10) and coupons, my total out of pocket was $1.57.
I earned $3 ECBs

Want to know how I did it?

Pepsi products were 4/$11 (get $3 ECBs back)
L'Oreal was $4.99 BOGO free
All was $6.49 BOGO free

The L'Oreal was BOGO free, but you can use one coupon for each item you get even on a BOGO sale. I had two BOGO free coupons and two $1 off coupons which means, I got four bottles for free, plus $2.00 credit to my overall bill.

All laundry soap was $5.79 & BOGO free. Again, you can use a coupon for each item even though one is free. I had 2/$1 off coupons. This made it $3.79 for two bottles of soap.

I also scanned my Extra Care card on the coupon machine when I went in and it gave me $3 off of $15. This is based on the total before ECBs and coupons.

I have a total of $10 ECBs left now for my next trip.

On another note....last weekend, we went to Krogers for groceries. I saved over 40% by using coupons. My total before coupons was $80 and after it was around $45. Stay tuned this weekend...I'm making another round on Saturday.
