I headed over to CVS on Sunday to use the $5/$25 coupon I had received via e-mail. There hadn't been anything last week that I needed, so I decided to wait until Sunday (the day it expired) to use it. Of course, when I got to my store, the Revitalift, which I had included in my plan was not available. The store manager (or at least shift manager) informed me that they could no longer write rain checks on 2 day ECB deals (news to me) and that two of the other nearby stores were also out. I asked if there was a way to substitute and scan it as the ECB item (they had offered this as an option in the past). She indicated this was not an option. I explained that I had wanted to use the coupon and that there wasn't anything else that I needed, she offered to accept the coupon (had to be manually entered since the computer wouldn't accept it), I said thank you. Here is what I got:
1 - Fructis Shampoo/Conditioner
1 - Glaceua Vitamin Water
2 - St. Ives Body Wash
1 - Speedstick deodorant
- $1 Fructis Mfg coupon
- $4 2x$2 St Ives IP
- $5 $5/$25 coupon
Paid with $1.98 and $2.58 ECBs and put $1.49 on a gift card (got it when I filled a prescription). Earned $2, $1.59 and $6 ECBs. So, I made a profit of $3.54 (ECBs earned - ECBs spent - OOP). Not too shabby.
