CVS Scenarios - week of 7/25

There are a few deals at CVS this week. I'm thinking I will offer up to one of my friends to use the Pampers Box deal - I don't need them, but I have the coupons needed to get them for a great deal - $5.49 after coupons and ECBs. I need to dig up some coupons for a few of the deals and I'm hopeful that some of the CRTs that I have been seeing on other deal posts are printing for me when I got his week, to make the deals even sweeter. I tried to get the $4 coupon at, but evidently, it is only for people that don't already have an e-mail on file.

Transaction #1
1 - CVS Photo Book
1 - U by Kotex

-$3 Photo Book CRT
-$1 U by Kotex Mfg coupon

Total $8.98 OOP and earn $7.99 and $4.99 ECB.

Transaction #2
1 - Pampers Box

-$2 Pampers Mfg coupon
-$4.50 Pampers CRT

Total $15.49, pay with $12.98 in ECBs from Transaction #1 and $2.51 OOP. Earn $10 ECBs.

Transaction #3
2 - Softsoap Bodywash
1 - Irish Spring Bodywash
2 - Speedstick
1 - Softsoap

-$1 Softsoap Bodywash Mfg coupon
-$1 Softsoap Bodywash Mfg coupon
-$1 Softsoap Bodywash CRT
-$.50 Irish Spring Bodywash Mfg coupon
-$1 Irish Spring Bodywash CRT
-$.50 Speedstick Mfg coupon
-$.35 Softsoap Mfg coupon

Total $10.65, pay with $10 ECB from Transaction #2 and $.65 OOP. Earn $5 ECBs.

Total OOP for the day $12.14 with $5 ECBs left to roll for $51.47 in product at sale prices or about 76% savings. I think it's great that essentially, I can get all of this stuff for less than the cost of the diapers.

Total $3.99 OOP, earn $4.99 ECB.

Transaction #2

-$3 Photobook CRT

Total $4.99, pay with $4.99 ECB. Earn $7.99 ECB.

Total OOP of $3.99 with $7.99 in ECBs left to roll. Not a bad trip. You could always use those ECBs remaining to pick up another deal or hang on to them for next week.
