CVS Deals - 3/15

On Sunday afternoon, on the way to a birthday party, we stopped at CVS to pick up the free after coupon and ECB deals. It was a very frustrating experience. I inadvertently picked up the MaxFresh Toothpaste instead of the MaxWhite Toothpaste and then the Dry Idea Deodorant I picked up, the one pictured in the ad, wasn't ringing correctly. The cashier told me that only the Regular scent was ringing up correctly. I had the Unscented. I pointed out that it was the one pictured in the ad and they might want to correct their computers. She just sort of gave me a look. Now I know why I tend to go to 2 of the 4 CVS that I can easily get to two that are local to my travels to work and two that are local to my home.

Transaction #1

1 - Irish Spring Body Wash
1 - Dry Idea Regular Roll On
1 - Colgate MaxWhite Toothpaste
2 - Cadbury Eggs

-$.75 Irish Spring Body Wash Mfg coupon
-$2 Dry Idea IP
-$.75 Colgate Mfg coupon

Paid with $2.99 and $4 ECBs and $.69 OOP. Earned $4.99, $2.99 and $2 ECBs. An increase of $2.99 in, a net gain of $2.30.

I will go back later this week to complete the Hershey's deal and since I noticed that the Dry Idea deal is not listed as Limit Reached, I will likely repeat that one as well since it is a moneymaker.
