CVS Deals - 10/9

I headed out to CVS on Friday to take advantage of the Benefiber deal a second time and with a goal of using a $5/$30 coupon I had received in e-mail. I have to say, that $5/$25 is a much better deal. I wound up having to fill my order with extra stuff to use my 2 $10 ECBs. If it had been a $5/$25 coupon, then I would have likely just paid cash for the couple bucks I was over, but with it $8+ over, I felt it was better to use fillers to get there.

Here is what I got:
3 - Benefiber Sticks
2 - Gold Emblem Bagged Candy
2 - Ice Cream Cones (for ice cream cone cupcakes for daughter's birthday)
2 - CVS Notebook (raincheck)
1 - CVS Sticky Notes (raincheck)
2 - CVS Pocket Tissues (filler)
1 - Ice Cubes gum (filler)

-$5 $5/$30 CVS e-mail coupon
-$2 Benefiber mfg coupon
-$2 Benefiber mfg coupon
-$2 Benefiber mfg coupon
-$1 $1/2 GE candy

Paid with $20 in ECBs and $.71 OOP. I earned $10, $2, and $1 ECB. Unfortunately, as I was going through my receipt, I discovered that I was charged for 4 Ice Cream Cones, so now I will have to go back to the store to get a refund. I would have skipped the fillers if I had known. I am sure it will be a challenge since I only paid $.71 in cash and need a refund of $2.

This is why I like Rite Aid better. you get back the rebate check back later but it is cash to use as you wish, not even to spend back at Rite Aid. I just bought $60 in stuff all free. Sure it is $6 out of pocket but when I get my $60 back at the end of the month, I can use the money I get anywhere.

Sorry, I meant to type $60 out of pocket that I get all back at the end of the month...not $6
