CVS - Whew! What a run! 9/14

Okay - GREAT CVS run today! You would have thought the balloons and confetti were coming down when my sister and I printed off the rare and seldomed spotted $4/20 coupon at the CVS store card scanner (we were both able to print one). I was almost moved to tears. :) Here's my scenerio:

St. Ives Body lotion and St. Ives Apricot scrub:both $5.29
use Sunday coupon: $1.00 off St. Ives product
use Sunday coupon: BOGO St. Ives (the coupon actually says Elements products, but they must be the same company or another name for St. Ives bc it worked on St. Ives products)
ECBs: $5
Total: both FREE

Aleve Sinus and Cold: $3.99
use printable coupon: $1/1 here
ECBs: $3.99
Total: FREE plus .99 overage

Excedrin: $3.99
ECB's: $3.99
Total: FREE

Rimmel eyeliner (I needed a $2 filler): 3.49
use Sunday coupon: $1/1
Total: $2.49

In this order use:
$4/20 (recieved this from the store CVS card scanner)
$2/10 here
manufacter coupons

Total OOP: $1.60 something (but I use my CVS gift card from last week)

what scanner are you referring to that prints the $4/$20 coupon?

we do not have those card scanners here! I am jealous!!

the scanners are located near the front of the store (usually). The are also there to check the price of items in the store. Everytime you go you swipe your card in front of the scanner and it will print off some type of coupon. It's usually just okay but this week it was awesome! Thanks for the questions. ---lizzy

Hi there Lizzy. I've got a post on my site called Festival of Frees. It's a compilation of everything you could possibly get for free with coupons this week. Come check it out and feel free to leave a link to your ideas!

Great scenarios! Thanks for sharing. I just found your blog--it's great.

But you can't use two $/$$ off of $/$$ at the same time! IDK how you were able to...

lizzyjane said...

fluffybabyshop - are you referring to the st. ives or the CVS coupons? You can use 2 CVS coupons at my store, and they didn't have any problem taking two coupons for the St. Ives. I've dont it a couple of times. Clarify for me and I'll see if I can help. :) Thanks for your comments.
