CVS Scenarios - week of 11/11

I didn't make it to CVS last week. I had thought about it a few times, but it never seemed to fit into my schedule. There were even a couple of nice days, where it would have made a good walking destination. I am sure that this week will be equally busy, so I might have to see what I can do about getting there early this week.

There are a couple of deals that I am hoping to pick up and a few that I want to check out.

Transaction #1
1 - Colgate MaxClean Toothpaste

-$.75 Colgate mfg coupon

Total $2 OOP. Earn $2 ECB.

Transaction #2
1 - Colgate MaxClean Toothpaste

-$.75 Colgate mfg coupon

Total $2, pay with $2 ECB and $0 OOP. Earn $2 ECB.

Transaction #3
1 - Gillette ProGlide/Venus Razor

-$4 Gillette ProGlide mfg coupon

Total $5.99, pay with $2 ECB and $3.99 OOP. Earn $4 ECBs.

Transaction #4
2 - Axe Shampoo/Conditioner/Gel

-$1 Axe mfg coupon
-$1 Axe mfg coupon

Total $7, pay with $4 ECB and $3 OOP. Earn $3 ECBs.

For the trip, the total OOP is $9, with $3 ECBs to roll and $24.50 in product at sale prices. A savings of about 67%.

I am also going to check out the Crest ProHealth deal. I have several Crest ProHealth mfg coupons, but am not sure what the shelf price might be and what type of deal I can work out. I might also look to gather some cereal coupons and pick up some of the GM cereals that are on sale for $1.97/box. I also need some Vitamin C and the Nature Made is on sale BOGO, so I might pick some of them up.

So the first three transactions look to be essentially free? Feel compelled to try this. Thanks for sharing!
