CVS Deals - 5/27 & 5/28

I made two more trips to CVS this week. I might make one more - I don't think my Mom did the Old Spice body wash deal and I have another set of coupons. Of course, if I do it, then I need to figure out what I want for $8 so that I can use the ECBs that I earn.

Transaction #1

1 - 50ct CVS Cotton Swabs
2 - 30ct CVS Cotton Swabs
6 - American Greetings Cards (Father's Day/Birthday)

-$1 $1 CVS Cosmetic Accessory CRT
-$1 $1/2 CVS First Aid CRT (I asked if the cotton swabs qualified before buying)
-$1 $1/3 American Greeting Mfg IP
-$1 $1/3 American Greeting Mfg IP
-$2.79 B3G1 American Greetings CRT
-$3 $3/$12 American Greetings CRT

Total 11.56 OOP. I didn't earn any ECBs and their coupon machine was down, so I didn't get any new coupons - it was out of paper, but they didn't seem in a hurry to replace the paper. When I mentioned it, the cashier responded that she knew it had been out for a while now. Oh well!

Transaction #2

2 - Nivea Body Wash
2 - Nivea Lip Care
2 - 30ct CVS Cotton Swabs

-$4.49 BOGO Nivea Body Wash mfg coupon
-$2.99 BOGO Nivea Lip Care mfg coupon
-$1 Nivea Body Wash mfg coupon
-$1 Nivea Lip Care mfg coupon

Paid with $6 ECBs and $1.26 ($.70 was tax!) on the gift card I had left and $.01 OOP. Earned $5 ECB. I must say, I was a little surprised to learn that the Nivea Lip Care at the register is the same size/type as those on the pegs in the aisle, but without the added packaging they are $.20 cheaper. I was glad I checked and saved myself $.20 on my transaction. I understand that packaging costs money, but if it is a $.20 increase on a lip balm, then maybe they should consider eliminating it all together.
