CVS Scenarios - week of 6/24

I have to get to CVS today. There was a big ad in my paper telling me that for three days only, the coupon machine will be printing off $5/$20 coupons. It has been forever since I had a $/$$ coupon at CVS. Sure, other people get them randomly by e-mail and at the coupon machine, but I clearly do not fit in their 'profile' of who gets those coupons, because I never do. I miss the days where they would be in the Sunday paper or in a magazine or mailer.

Of course, if I am going to go, it is always best to have a game plan.

Transaction #1
1 - Colgate Tootbrush
3 - V05 Conditioners
1 - Venus Razor
1 - Crest ProGlide Floss

-$5 $5/$20 CVS CRT
-$.75 Toothbrush CRT
-$.75 Colgate Toothbrush mfg coupon
-$1 $1/3 V05 mfg coupon
-$2 $2 Shampoo/Conditioner CRT
-$4 Venus mfg coupon
-$.50 Glide floss mfg coupon

Total $6.74 OOP, earn $4, $4 and $2 ECBs, for a net 'profit' of $3.26 in ECBs.

My paper has the beloved $5/20 coupon in it. exp 6/30 I did get one to print out ... but wasn't prepared w/coupons to purchase $20 at the time. It was only good for ... 48 hrs and the family was not having a good time of it. It was the 3rd day that I revisited CVS w/perscript in hand + the coupons and of course it was expired.

That's a bummer. I seem to be getting 30% coupons (on non-sale, of course) lately. Trying to use, even if small, to see if that increases the coupons I see.
