CVS 8/13/08

I really needed some shopping therapy today. Over the weekend a colleague that I have worked with for the last three years was killed in a motorcycle accident. The funeral was yesterday. I haven't felt like doing much and really had to force myself to get out of the office today (which of course has been pretty miserable). So I went to CVS to think about something other than the meaning of life. So now that I have totally bummed you out (sorry), here is the better part of my day. Overall (subtracting ECBs and cash used and adding ECBs earned) my purchases only cost me .42 cents:

Transaction 1:

  • 4 bags of Dove Chocolate – regularly 4.49 each, on sale 2 for 6 – 2 IP Qs BOGO making them $1.50 each
  • 1 Alavert D – 10.99 – MF Q $4/1 making it 6.99 (thought it was the $5.99 version but didn’t look close enough, my bad)
  • 2 Arizona Blueberry Drinks, .99 BOGO
  • 1 Skin Effects Foaming Wash, 6.99 – CVS Skin Effects Coupon $2/1 making it $4.99
  • 1 CVS Moisturizing Beauty Bar, .79 – CVS Skin Care Coupon $2/1 making it -$1.21

Also used:

  • CVS $2/10 Coupon
  • ECBs - 14.00


Total before coupons/discounts: $39.79

Total after coupons (including tax): $2.84

Got 13 ECBs (Alavert – 3, Candy – 5, Skin Effects – 5) and numerous other product coupons to use for the next visits.

Transaction 2:

  • 2 Sweet Tarts, regularly .79, on sale 2 for $1.00
  • 2 Lamisil, 7.99 – 2 MF Qs $4/1 making them $3.99 each
  • 1 CVS Moisturizing Beauty Bar, .79 – CVS Skin Care Coupon $2/1 making it -$1.21

Also used:

  • CVS $2/10 Coupon
  • ECBs – 5.00

Total before coupons/discounts: $19.16

Total after coupons (including tax): $1.58

Got 10 ECBs (Lamisil)

So sorry to hear about your colleague. I'm sure the past few days have been miserable.

Great trip to CVS.

I'm sorry to hear that sad news. I'm sure it helped to get out of the house and get your mind off things.

Great trip to CVS this week. I did okay, but many of my items were pretty high dollar, so the picture of my stash on my blog doesn't look like I got as much. I actually saved more than I usually do, though!
