CVS Deals last week

We did some traveling over the weekend, so I feel like I have some catching up to do. The kids and I went to my parent's house for the weekend. I took my mom to CVS for her first CVSing experience. She was excited about all that she could get for so little.

Myself, I did two stops, one before I left town and one with my mom.

Before I left, I got the following:

2 Oral B Advantage Toothbrushes
2 Covergirl Smoother Foundations

-$1 Toothbrush Coupon
-$2 $2/$10 CVS coupon
-$7.99 BOGO coupon on Covergirl

Paid with $2 in ECBs and $0.55 OOP. I earned $3. in ECBs.

Then, when I went with my mom, I decided to take advantage of the school supply rebate from Pert and Sure that was in her coupon insert last week, but not mine. I got the following:

2 5-pk Mechanical Pencils
1 10-pk Bic Pens
1 2-pk Nemo Chapstick (clearance)
2 Covergirl Smoother Foundations
2 13.5 oz PertPlus shampoos
2 2.6 oz Sure Deodorant
2 100ct Mead Index Cards
2 rolls of Scotch tape

-$1 Pert Plus coupon
-$2 Pert Plus coupon
-$1 x 2 Sure coupon
-$7.99 Covergirl BOGO coupon
-$2 $2/$10 CVS coupon

Paid $8.79 in ECBs and $1.08 OOP. This felt completely wrong with my estimate. I was expecting closer to $6 total. I checked my receipt before leaving and realized that someone had mis-hung the Scotch tape and I hadn't gotten the one that was on the BOGO sale they were having. I had to do a return of the two tapes and a rebuy. I got a refund of $3.50. I have cash now instead of ECBs. I will send in for my $5 rebate and then, this will actually be a total of $1.37 for all of this stuff - not too shabby.
