CVS Scenarios - week of 7/4

I am starting to feel like I am the only one that doesn't get the $/$$ coupons from e-mail or from the coupon machine. Why is that? I go shopping with friends and they get them. I read posts on other sites and it seems everyone gets them, sometimes multiple times a month. I would really love to get one. There are a lot of deals that I would be more inclined to take advantage of, if only I had one of those coupons. Alas, I guess I will keep doing a number of small transaction until one magically appears for me.

Transaction #1
1 - BioTrue Solution
3 - Post Cereals
2 - Sobe LifeWater

-$2 Post IP
-$1 $1/2 Post IP (from Target.com)
-BOGO Sobe LifeWater (from Heads or Tails game, no cap code necessary to play)

Total $9.99 OOP, earn $2.99 and $5 ECBs.

Transaction #2
2 - Pantene Shampoo/Conditioners
2 - Sobe LifeWater

-$4.99 BOGO Pantene mfg coupon (max value $4.99)
-$1.50 Pantene mfg coupon (from VocalPoint)
-BOGO Sobe LifeWater (from Heads or Tails game, no cap code necessary to play)

Total $5.49, pay with $5 ECBs and $.49 OOP. Earn $4 ECBs.

I'm also thinking that I might take advantage of the Covergirl offer, I have that Buy one Covergirl, get one Eye Kit free coupon. The ad says spend $15 on any Covergirl, so I am assuming that I can use the value of the Eye Kit as part of my $15, but will confirm this before I complete the deal.

I also am considering the candy deal. I have a free Dove candy bar or $2 off Dove CRT. I don't really think I have other coupons, but I like to keep a candy jar at work and this is one way to get it for a better price. I like post holiday clearance as well for stocking up.

You're not the only one NOT getting the $ off $$ coupons!

I had my husband sign up for a new card (we've moved and couldn't find his) and now he gets the $/$$ coupons ALL the time. My advice? Get a new card. My friend's husband used to get a new Kroger card every time he shopped, he didn't like them following what he bought. :)
