CVS Scenarios - week of 7/24

I'm a little bit unsure of what I will do at CVS this week. There are a few free/near free deals that will be on my list and perhaps a few others.

In addition, I know that I need to pick up some more vitamins for myself, so I may try to do the gas card deal. What I am not sure of is whether I will get the regular amount of the vitamins or the actual amount after B1G1 sale. I likely would pair this with the Herbal Essence/Aussie deal, to take advantage of the $3 mfg coupon that is available.

Transaction #1
1 - Papermate pens
1 - U by Kotex

-$1 U by Kotex mfg coupon

Total $4.48 OOP, earn $1.99 and $2 ECBs.

Transaction #2
1 - Crest ProHealth Rinse

-$1 Crest Mfg coupon (I think this is for the right size, I have a $2 one that is for a larger size)

Total $1.99, pay with $1.99 ECB. Earn $2 ECBs.

Transaction #3
1 - Cheez-It Snack Mix
1 - Oreo Cookies
2 - Lorna Doone Cookies

-$1 $1/2 Nabisco Cookies and Crackers mfg coupon

Total $4, pay with $1.99 and $2 ECBs and $.01 OOP. Earn $1 ECB.

For the trip, the total OOP is $4.49, with $1 ECB remaining, for $13.47 in product at sale price. A savings of just under 70%.

For more deals, check out Money Saving Mom and Deal Seeking Mom. For more $5 Scenarios, check out the CVS $5 Challenge.

Update: I meant to include the following, but missed it.

Transaction #4
1 - ReNu Solution

-$2 ReNu Mfg coupon

Total $5.69, pay with $1 ECB and $4.69 OOP. Earn $6 ECBs.

If I had remembered it, I would have made it transaction #1, combined #2 and #3 and here is what the net would have been:
$4.95 OOP
$1 ECB to roll
$21.16 in product
a savings of 78%.

Actually, a much better scenario.
