CVS Deals 10/3 & 10/6

Last week, I studied the CVS ad and thought, there are a couple of deals that might be great to take advantage of. Then, on Tuesday night, my dryer quit working and when we shopped for appliances on Wednesday, we decided that since our washing machine was 14 years old and since we really wanted to make the move to an HE dryer now and since part of what allows the HE dryer to not work as hard is the HE washer, it was time for a new washing machine too. Fortunately, I had a couple of bottles of detergent that are HE, but I also had 4 bottles of detergent that were not. So, I gave my mom and my brother the non-HE detergent and headed out to CVS to buy some replacements. The first day, I didn't think I had my coupons with me, so I only bought 2 bottles. I knew I wanted more, so I headed back. Because the coupons were only available two per Facebook account, I had my husband get them through his account (on a different computer)

10/3 Transaction
2- All Free & Clear
2 - Centrum Flavor Burst Vitamins

-$3 $3/$15 CVS coupon
-$3 $3/2 All IP (Facebook offer)
-$5 Centrum Flavor Burst CRT
-$3 Centrum Flavor Burst mfg coupon
-$5 Centrum Flavor Burst CRT
-$2 Centrum Flavor Burst IP

My total was -$.02, plus tax, for a total of $.48 OOP. Not bad - free vitamins and free detergent and I didn't use any ECBs to buy it.

10/6 Transaction
6 - All Detergents (4 were Free & Clear and 2 were Oxi)
5 - Hershey/Mars Fun Size Singles 6 pk
1 - Milky Way Caramel fun size bag
1 - 3 Musketeers fun size bag

-$5 $5/$30 CVS e-mail coupon
-$3 $3/2 All IP (Facebook offer)
-$3 $3/2 All IP (Facebook offer)
-$3 $3/2 All IP (Facebook offer)
-$1 $1/2 Hershey 6ct mfg coupon
-$1 $1/2 Hershey 6ct mfg coupon

Paid with $3.50 in ECBs and $12.57 ($11.50 + $1.07 tax) OOP. Earned $3 ECBs. Not as good as free, but still can't argue with getting 184 load of detergent and countless candy bars (I could count, but that would take effort) for only $12.57. If I just apply the $ to the laundry, it works out to be 6.8c / load.

What did you get at CVS last week?
