CVS Deals - 12/22

On Sunday, I decided that the 25% off coupon that I had received by e-mail for CVS was likely to be my best opportunity for picking up additional Slim-Fast (protein shakes in my world) at the best value. My coupons expire first part of next week and although I expect a New Year's resolution type sale, I expect it will be the first week of next year, vs the week of New Year's. The deal turned out even better than I expected. When I got home and looked at my receipt, I understood part of why it was better than I expected. Before checking out, I asked if I could use two of the same CVS coupons in one transaction, as I wanted to take advantage of my 25% off offer and was told that would not be a problem.

4 - SlimFast Shakes 4pk
1 - Just the Basics 32oz Conditioner (clearance priced at 62c)
1 - Cadbury Carmello
1 - Speedstick Deodorant
1 - Dove 12 oz Conditioner (clearance priced at $1.24)
2 - Suave Men's Sport Body Wash, 12 oz
1 - Reese PB 6 pk snack
3 - Milky Way/Musketeers bar (added at the last minute to allow use of ECB)

-$6.18 CVS 25% e-mail offer
-$7.49 BOGO SlimFast CVS IP (CVS.com)
-$3.75 $3.75/2 SlimFast Mfg coupon (coupons.com)
-$7.49 BOGO SlimFast CVS IP (CVS.com)
-$3.75 $3.75/2 SlimFast Mfg coupon (coupons.com)

Paid with $10 ECB and $1.02 OOP ($.45 plus $.57 tax).

Turns out that the SlimFast has a buy 3 or more and save price of $6, but the computer still treated it as the regular price of $7.49, so with just my CVS and manufacturer's coupon, I paid $.38 for each 4-pk...but, remember that I got 25% off as well on some portion of them. The 25% off was based on a subtotal of $24.72, which as per normal I can't quite figure out what items it applied to.

Unfortunately, I think the BOGO coupon is no longer available, as I looked for it on a friend's computer and didn't find it. Too bad, that is quite a deal. Did you print it while it was available?

In the end, my receipt says that I saved $53.13 or 99%. Not too shabby.
