CVS trip -- 8/27

I forgot to take a picture of my most recent bargains. The past few weeks, there really hasn't been a lot of great deals, so I took a few weeks off from CVS. Wednesday night, Apple and I made our first trip together though.

When I walked in, I scanned my card on the CRT machine. Out came a $3 off of $25 coupon and a few other regular coupons. I was mainly going for three items that had ECB deals involved. I always head to the clearance racks first. Apple and I scanned the shelves to see if there were any items that we had coupons for and sure enough there were a few different things. There was Clean and Clear facial cleanser for $1.99. I had two coupons for $2.00 off so those two items ended up being free. There was also some Olay cleanser that was $2 (previously $8.99). I had a coupon for $3 off of 2 Olay cleansers which made those 50 cents each!

Here is the whole transaction:

4 - 12 packs of Diet Pepsi
1 - 2 liter of Sierra Mist
1 - Kotex
2 - Zipfizz Energy drink mix
2 - Clean and Clear
2 - Olay
1 - T-shirt (for Apple)

1 free Sierra mist with purchase of 3 Diet Pepsi 12 packs
$1 off Kotex
$4 off Clean and Clear
$3 off Olay

My total before coupons and ECBs was $70.
I used $21 in ECBs.

I paid $2.12 out of pocket

I also got back:

$3.00 ECB for Pepsi products
$1.49 ECB for Kotex
$11.58 for Zipfizz

And I still have about $10 ECBs from the previous trip.

Pretty good trip!
