CVS: I'm finished!


Grrrr.... I'm so glad I blog about my trips to the drug stores, because I find so many mistakes.

Take this trip.  I purchased two Finish gelpacs, 20 ct, and one bottle of Finish Jet-Dry rinse.  These should have been $4 each - that's what the sign on the shelf said - and I should have received $4 in Extra Care Bucks.

Instead, the gelpacs rang up as $5.99, and I did not get the ECBs.  The kind of mistake that with all the other deals I might not notice, but that I caught just now as I was blogging about it.

Oh, well, I'll be headed to CVS again to get this mistake fixed, get my $3.98 plus tax back and a $4 ECB. 

UPDATE: I went back, pointed out the mistake, and got the refund and the ECBs. Yay!

Here's what I got, even with the mistake:


2 Finish gelpacs @ $5.99 (should have been $4) = $11.98
1 Finish Jet-Dry rinse @ $4.00 (receive $4 ECB for $12 in products)
- 2 $0.50/1 Finish gelpacs printable coupon
- 1 $0.25/1 Finish Jet-Dry rinse printable coupon
= $14.73

2 Mint Milano cookies @ $2.50 = $5.00
- 2 $1/1 Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies printable
= $3 for two, or $1.50 each

3 Hallmark cards @ $1.99 = $5.97 (receive $3 ECB)
- $2/3 Hallmark printable
- $3/3 Hallmark CVS printable
= 97¢ ($2.03 moneymaker after ECBs)

1 Advil Congestion Relief @ $4.99
1 Advil Children's Liquid @ $4.99 (receive $3 ECB when you purchase 2 items)
- $2/1 Advil Congestion Relief printable coupon
- $2/1 off Advil Children's Product coupon (received in newspaper with free sample)
= $7.98 for two, or $3.99 each ($2.49 each after ECBs)

Tax: $1.32

Total before ECBs:  $26.00
Pay with $9.86 in ECBs from previous weeks

Total out of pocket: $16.14
Total saved compared to CVS full prices: $31.48
ECBs received: $6

If you used the coupons on the advil deal you paid $1.49 each after EB. Love finding I saved more money
