CVS Deals - 9/3

I headed out to CVS today to pick up a few things. I had a 25% off coupon and knew that only a few things would be eligible for the discount. I noticed that they have their cereal cups at 10/$10. I thought that at 75c a piece, it would be good to have a few on hand. But, not only is their regular price 10/$10, so is their sale price, so they weren't eligible. I wasn't very excited about that - I skipped them. The shelf tag says the 'sale' is through 9/8, so hopefully they will just be 10/$10 regular price when I get another coupon.

I had read online that some stores had the small cans of the Gillette shave gel on the deal. I saw in the shave gel aisle that the small can of the shave gel for men was included, but priced at $2.37. The small cans for women were only $1.67 and located in the sample/travel row - they were not included. I bought and returned one, just to see.

I also bought some toothbrushes that my daughter wanted (the first of five nice things I did for her), but they were considered on sale too - even though there was no sale tag. I went ahead and bought them, despite the non-'sale' that they were part of (turns out that they are on a deal if you buy 2 or more, but I only bought 1). Although, it may have actually give me the 25% - I can't make the math work otherwise.

1 - Fantastik Cleaner
1 - Shout Liquid Treatment Spray
2 - Mio Water Enhancer
3 - Halloween Cards

-$1 $1/2 Scrubbing Bubbles Mfg coupon
-$.75 Fantastik Cleaner Mfg coupon
-$3 Shout (Free) Mfg coupon
-$1 Mio IP
-$1 Mio IP
-$.99 B2G1 Card CRT
-$2 Wisk Mfg coupon
-$2.11 25% CVS e-mail coupon

Paid with $4, $10 and $1 ECB and $6.17 OOP ($4.40 plus tax). Earned $4 and $1 ECB. My Free Shout coupon was expiring, so I thought that it made sense to take advantage of the ECB offer to maximize my savings. It made each of the four items on the deal $.81 after coupons and ECB. I had that coupon for the Wisk that was expiring later this month, so I decided that $2.99 after coupons was a pretty good deal for the detergent.

CVS is one of my favorite drug stores to shop at. You did very well in your savings. I need to stock up on household supplies too :)
