CVS 101 - For this week!

Several of my friends who are new to following me have asked "How do you have 50 razors on hand that you got for free?" or "How did you stop buying toothpaste and deodorant? You still use it right?" OF COURSE! 

But I got savvy with Walgreens and CVS. They have RR's and ECBs which are basically money you can use on your next transaction, but watch those expiration dates! You could be letting this money expire if you don't stay on it!

Your task.. go to CVS this week, get a CVS rewards card and try this out:

Transaction #1
(2)  Nivea Lip Care 0.17-0.35 oz., $2.99
Use (1) B1G1 Free item in the 2/07/10 RP
Pay Out Of Pocket = $2.99 + tax
Receive a $2.99ECB

Transaction #2:
Buy (1) Oral-B Cross Action Toothbrush, $4.00
Use (1) $0.75 coupon in the 2-21-10 or 2-07-10 PG Insert
Use the $2.99 ECB from Transaction # 1
Pay out of pocket $.26 + Tax
Receive a $4.00 ECB!

Transaction #3
Buy (1) Oral-B Cross Action Toothbrush, $4.00
Use the $4 ECB from Transaction # 2
Pay out of pocket: JUST THE TAX
Receive a $4 ECB

Transaction #4
Buy (2) Pantene Hair Care 2/$6.97
Buy (1) Filler Item,  (pencil or other small item)
Use (1) $3.00/2 Coupon in the 3/07/10 PG Insert
Use the $4.00 ECB from Transaction # 3
Pay the price of the pencil/filler item + Tax
Receive a $2.00 ECB

Out of pocket, you're spending approximately $3.50 + tax
You're receiving all of the products listed AND you're going home with a $2ECB!
