CVS Deals - 5/14

Since I didn't have much luck finding this week's deals at CVS on Thursday, I headed back out on Friday at lunch time to see if I could find some of the items at another store. Luckily, they were mostly stocked and I used one rain check, got one more rain check.

Transaction #1

Transaction #2
1 - Bag Dove Promises Caramel
1 - Crest ProHealth Rinse
2 - Nivea BodyWash for Women
2 - Nivea BodyWash for Men

-$2 Dove CRT
-$.75 Crest Rinse mfg coupon
-$2 $2/2 Bodywash CRT
-$2 $2/2 Bodywash CRT
-$4 Nivea Women Bodywash mfg coupon
-$4 Nivea Women Bodywash mfg coupon
-$3 Nivea Men Bodywash mfg coupon
-$3 Nivea Men Bodywash mfg coupon
-$4.88 Nivea Women BOGO mfg coupon

Total $1.83 OOP, earned $5 and $3.50 ECBs. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with the transaction at the store, I was supposed to owe about $4 (+tax) by my calculation and yet I owed under $2 with tax. As I sit here typing it, I realize that I inadvertently handed the cashier one too many bodywash coupons. She didn't have to push anything through, so it didn't occur to me at the time. I think that I will have to go back and purchase one without a coupon, to make it right. I used my rain check for the Nivea deal to get last week's sale price. The cashier suggested since it was still on deal that I save the rain check, I told her I really just wanted the sale price from last week and if she could use that part of the rain check, I would prefer to do that. She wasn't sure if the ECB would print if she did price override, but I mentioned that if it didn't print, she could always use the ECB portion of the rain check to print one.

For the day, I started with $7 ECBs. I spent them plus $2.70 OOP and earned $16.49 in ECBs. A "profit" of $6.80 in ECBs, or about flat when I purchase the bodywash. I can't believe I did that. I was a little flustered I guess trying to fit it all in on my lunch hour. I had to go back in after I walked out to get my rain check.
