CVS Deals - 2/18

Obviously, there was a reason that when I stopped at CVS on Friday, I picked up only M&Ms. I didn't know it at the time, but it was because there was a high value Nature's Made IP that was going to be available right before I left on Saturday, that I was supposed to use. When I got to CVS and they didn't have exactly what I was hoping for in stock, I got some additional vitamins. When I read the shelf tag wrong, I put some back.

Transaction #1
2 - Nature Made Tripleflex 120ct
2 - UP2U gum

-$3 $3/$15 CVS coupon
-$10 Tripleflex CRT
-$5 Nature Made IP
-$5 Nature Made IP
-$1 $1/2 UP2U CRT
-$1 UP2U mfg coupon
-$1 UP2U mfg coupon

Paid with $9 in ECBs, $5 on a free Gift Card and $5.06 OOP. Earned a $10 CVS Cash Card.

Transaction #2
2 - Nature Made Fish Oil 200 ct
2 - Nature Made Vitamin D 250 ct

-$2 Nature Made Fish Oil IP
-$2 Nature Made Fish Oil IP
-$5 Nature Made IP
-$5 Nature Made IP

Paid with $10 Cash Card and $25.83 OOP. Earned a $10 CVS Cash Card. This was the transaction where the Vitamin D was more than I thought it was. I had thought they were $12 each and they were more. So, my OOP was much higher than I planned.

Transaction #3
2 - Nature Made Chewable Vitamin C
1 - Colgate Total

-$1 Nature Made IP
-$1 Nature Made IP
-$.75 Colgate mfg coupon

Paid $9.76 on Cash Card and $0 OOP. Earned $10 Cash Card.

Transaction #4
4 - Nivea Lip Care

-$4 4x$1 Nivea IP

Paid with $2 ECB and $4.65 on Cash Card. Earned $3 ECBs. There is still $5.59 on the Cash Card.

My total OOP for the day was $30.83 and a decline of $.41 in ECB/Cash Card value.

According to my receipts, with sales and coupons, I saved $157.51. When you consider the savings, plus the $24.41 in cash cards and the $5 Gift Card, means that I got $217.75 in product for a total OOP of $30.83. A savings of 86%. Plus, since I picked up 8 containers of vitamins, now I am stocked and shouldn't need to buy vitamins (other than my multi) for a while.
