CVS Deals - 9/5

I noticed when I logged onto a while back that there were some ECBs still on my account that I didn't have in my possession. Originally, when I called, I was told there was nothing they could do. Having read on a blog that if your ECBs don't print that they can force them, I decided to try and call customer service again this week. This time, they still told me they couldn't put them back on my card, but they could give the coupon code and my store could enter it manually.

To me, this was found money, I couldn't let it go to waste and it was due to expire tomorrow. Since I had already made my trip this week, there weren't any deals I was in pursuit of, so I headed to the clearance row to look for some deals. My regular store doesn't have this type of an area, their clearance items are throughout the store. At the store I was shopping at today I was able to find quite a lot of items on 75% and 50% off clearance. I did learn though that it is important to check expiration dates. Some of the product on clearance was expired, by multiple months. Here's what I got:

2 - 32 oz Gatorade Lemonade
1 - 1000ct bendy straws
1 - 50ct Travel CVS Cotton Swabs (I got an e-mail with a coupon for a free one)

Spent the $3 ECB and $0.47 OOP.
