CVS Deals - 12/30

I headed over to CVS to use up some coupons that I had expiring at the end of the year. I wound up doing the one transaction wrong and could have gotten the more expensive foundation for less out of pocket. I might go back today, since I still have the same coupon. I also did them in the wrong sequence, I could have used the ECBs from the second transaction to pay for the first transaction instead of paying so much on a gift card. I guess that is the value of being prepared.

Here is what I got:

Transaction #1
2 - Covergirl Foundation
1 - Essence of Beauty Mesh Sponge

-$6.19 BOGO Covergirl Foundation coupon
-$2 Essence of Beauty CVS coupon
-$3 $3/$15 CVS coupon

Paid $1.56 on gift card.

Transaction #2
1 - Sobe Life Water (filler)
2 - Old Spice High Endurance Deodorant
2 - bags of Christmas candy
1 - 4.0z Colgate Total
1 - Essence of Beauty Mesh Sponge

-$1 $1/2 Old Spice mfg coupon
-$1.50 Colgate mfg coupon
-$1 Colgate CRT
-$2 EoB CVS coupon
-$3 $3/$15 CVS coupon

Paid with $3.99 and $2.59 (adjusted down to $2.27) ECBs. Earned $2 and $1 ECBs.

Not a great week overall. I reduced my ECB position by $3.58 and spent money from my gift card. However, it still cost me nothing OOP and I got things that we use and will need soon (and some things that we didn't need, like more candy).

Check out how others did this week at CVS Superstars on The "Cent"sible Sawyer.
