CVS Scenarios - week of 3/1

I'm sort of torn with the deals at CVS. There are some deals that I feel are pretty good, but am at capacity on the items. I'm just debating whether to actually pick more up or wait. I will share the scenarios, I'm just not sure if I will do them or not.

Transaction #1
1 - Carnation Instant Breakfast
1 - Act Total Care Trial Size
1 - CVS Vitamin D

-$.75 Carnation mfg coupon (January All You)

Total $8.22. Earn $4.99, $.99 and $2.99 ECBs.

Transaction #2
1 - Gillette Fusion

-$4 Gillette mfg coupon

Total $3.99, pay with $.99 and $2.99 ECBs from transaction #1 and $.01 OOP. Earn $4 ECBs.

Thanks for leaving me a comment to let me know about the printable coupon limitations. I have since posted a confession about the mistake. Thanks again!
