CVS Deals - 3/29

I headed to CVS on Sunday to take advantage of the one day deals and to pick up some of the other deals that interested me this week. There were a few things that they were out of already - the Glade Sense and Spray and the Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara.

Here is what I was able to get:

Transaction #1

1 - Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner
1 - Lysol Wipes
1 - Paas Egg Decorator
2 - M&M 12.6oz bags

-$1 CVS coupon for Lysol product
-$1 Lysol mfg coupon
-$.75 Lysol mfg coupon
-$1 $1/2 M&M mfg coupon

Paid with $2 and $3.49 in ECBs and $.79 OOP. Earned $1.99 ECBs.

I will be submitting this receipt for the Lysol Pediatrician $5 Reward Mail-In Offer.

Transaction #2

1 - Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner
1 - Lysol Wipes
1 - Lysol All Purpose Cleaner
4 - Ensure 6pk

-$1 CVS Lysol coupon
-$1 Lysol Mfg coupon
-$.75 Lysol Mfg coupon
-$.50 Lysol Mfg coupon
-$3 Ensure IP
-$3 Ensure IP
-$3 Ensure IP
-$6.99 Ensure free IP
-$2 CVS $2/$10 coupon

Paid with $3.99 in ECBs and $11.73 OOP.

I will submit this receipt for the Lysol $3 Mail-In Rebate Offer.

I spent a lot of money and ECBs today. I decreased my ECBs by $7.49 and spent $11.73 OOP for a total "cost" of $19.22. I will get back $8 by mail, making my net cost $11.22. I don't think that is too bad for everything I got.

I use the Ensure as a protein source after working out. I typically get the high protein ones, but they only had three on shelf, so one was not high protein. I also was able to get a good amount of cleaning supplies. I couldn't have even come close to this deal elsewhere.

Of course for those of you that recall this post, you will see I spent in one visit almost 10% (prior to rebates) of what I spent in the last 10 months (prior to rebates as well). Sometimes, you have to spend in order to save. My savings for this visit was $49.10 - since they roll my ECBs into this savings, that means that I got $60.83 worth of product (at CVS shelf price) for $11.73 a savings of 81%.
