I'm Back!! CVS 9/16.....This was fun :)

I have still been shopping although I haven't been posting. This was a pretty big shop and I since I got my new camera, I thought I should share! Here is how I did:

So, I bought the $4/$20 from Ebay and was able to use 5 of those in this transaction. I also used the 20% off coupon that was e-mailed to me. I have put in the 20% above in the non-sale items which adds up to $8.76. However, that coupon only took off $6.23. Anyways, here is the total breakdown:

Subtotal: $100.46
MQs: $34.72
CVS Qs: $55.23 (includes 4/20 and ECBs)
Tax: $4.02
OOP: $14.53
Savings: 85.5%

I started with $28 ECBs and ended with $37. The increase of $9 means that this really cost $5.53 after tax! Oh yeah, I clearly earned $5 ECB for the beauty club today too! So, this cost $.53 after tax :)


  1. Wow, I went to CVS for the toothpaste and the Physicians Formula. I better go back for the Nexxus, Pantene, Herbal Essence, and the Frizz Ease! Nice haul!

  2. Oh hey, you said you bought those coupons from ebay? They expire after ten days, right? Is that from when you paypal them the cash? How long did it take for them to get to you? I'm tempted...

  3. Yes, I got them within a few hours :) I liked that those BOGO coupons took off the max value which ended up making them all free and racked up some beauty club spending!
