CVS Scenarios - week of 1/29

For the first time in a while, there were some deals that I feel like it is worth heading to CVS for. I just wish that both of my local papers had all the coupons in them, but some only come in one or the other, limiting my options slightly - basically, if I had more of the BOGO on the Speedstick, I would use them.

Transaction #1
3 - American Greetings Cards

-$2 $2/3 American Greetings (
$.99 B2G1 IP (should be able to stack a mfg and a CVS coupon)

Total $0 OOP. Earn $3 ECBs.

Transaction #2
2 - Speedstick Deodorants
1 - Irish Spring Deodorants
1 - Irish Spring Body Wash
1 - Irish Spring Soaps

-$1.99 BOGO Speedstick mfg coupon
-$1 Irish Spring Deodorant mfg coupon
-$1 Irish Spring Body Wash mfg coupon
-$.50 Irish Spring Bar Soap mfg coupon

Total 7.50, pay with $3 ECBs and $4.50 OOP. Earn $6 ECBs.

Transaction #3
1 - Tom's of Maine Toothpaste (hoping they have the children's one)
1 - Cadbury Egg
2 - Dawn Dish Soap

-$.50 Dawn mfg coupon
-$.50 Dawn mfg coupon

Total $5.82, pay with $6 ECB adjusted down or throw in a filler. Earn $3 and $.87 ECBs.

Transaction #4
2 - Pretzel M&Ms

-$1 M&M IP
-$1 M&M IP

Total $3, pay with $3 ECB and $0 OOP. Earn $1 ECB.

For the trip, the total OOP of $4.50 with $1.87 in ECBs to roll for $27 in product, a savings of 84%.

I think I might also pick up the Pepsi 12 pack deal - maybe I will make some more of these Mountain Dew Cupcakes?
