CVS: How eggs-asperating!

I took a trip over to CVS earlier today. Like my trip at Walgreens, there weren't a lot of great deals to be had at CVS this week. This was especially true at my particular CVS. There's a deal this week for free Cadbury single eggs or package of mini-eggs after Extra Care Bucks, but my store didn't have either of the products in stock. How eggs-asperating!

There were other candy deals, but I really don't want to keep a lot of candy in the house.  It will just tempt me into eating it...

But here's what I did get:

1 Purex laundry detergent @ $1.99
- $1.00 off coupon from the 2/20 RedPlum insert
= 99¢ after coupon

2 Kellogg's Raisin Bran @ $1.99 each = $3.98
- $1/2 selected Kellogg's cereals coupon from the 2/6 Smartsource insert
= $2.98 for two, or $1.49 each
(I generally try to keep cereal purchases closer to $1.00 or less per box.  But we only have two boxes left so since I could use ECBs to pay for them, I bought two boxes here)

1 Gold Emblem jelly beans @ 99¢, receive 99¢ ECB
= 99¢

Total product cost: $4.96
ECBs used: $4.96 (I had a $4 ECB and a $1 ECB, but I asked the cashier to round the $1 ECB down to 96¢.  Sometimes CVS cashiers will do this, sometimes they won't.)
Total product cost after ECBs: FREE
Total tax: 16¢
Total out of pocket: 16¢

Love the title! Sorry for the frustration, though. I'll be seeing if my store has them this afternoon--but since it is truck day they should. Thanks for linking up your CVS shopping trip at Simply CVS.

That's actually the only thing I was planning on buying this week, also. I can't use Purex, my husband is allergic to anything but Tide, and we have TONS of cereal from previous deals.

I had the same problem with the Snickers PB Squared. I had a coupon that expired Sunday for B1G1 Free and a CVS B1G1 Free that expired yesterday. Went into the store and they said they didn't have them in. What?! Its in the ad!
