Super Savings Saturday: CVS savings

I hit up CVS again this week. I only took one picture. I always forget until after I put away all my goods and well, once they are put away, why get them back out?


My first purchase included the above items.
I purchased:
2 Excedrin Migraine 24 ct -- $3.98
1 CVS Tylenol -- $3.99
1 Huggies diapers -- $8.99
1 Pull Ups -- $8.99
2 Desitin -- $5.98
2 Johnson baby wash -- $5.98
Total = $37.91
I used these coupons:
$4/$20 CVS coupon = $33.91
$2 off Huggies diapers CVS coupon = $31.91
$2 off Huggies diaper manuf. coupon = $29.91
$2 off Pull Ups = $27.91
2 $2 off Excedrin product = $23.91
2 $1 off Johonson products = $21.91
$1 off Desitin = $20.91
$14.97 in ECBs = $5.94
Plus tax = 1.02
Total out of pocket = $6.96
Earned $12 in ECBs
I realized I purchased the wrong CVS Tylenol and I returned that a few days later, getting $4.23 back, so my total for this trip was actually $2.73. By the way, has anyone seen the CVS rapid release Tylenol in their stores? I haven't seen it at all in mine yet.

2nd purchase:

1 Febreeze Fabric Refreshner - $3.99
1 Febreeze candle - $6.99
2 Swiffer refills -- $11.98
Total: $22.96
Coupons used:
$4/$20 CVS coupons = $18.96
$1 off 2 Swiffer refills = $17.96
.50 cents off Febreeze fabric refreshner = $17.46
$2 off Febreeze candle = $15.46
$12 in ECBs = $3.46
Plus tax .42 = $3.88 out of pocket
Earned $10 in ECBs

3rd purchase:
3 Covergirl Tru Blend makeup -- $20.97
Coupons used:
$4/$20 CVS -- $16.97
$17 in ECBs -- FREE
Earned $10 in ECBs

4th purchase:
1 Dove Body Cream -- $5.99
2 Sunsilk cremes -- $6.98
1 Sunsilk shampoo -- $6.98
1 Gillette Fusion razor -- $9.99

$7 ECBs earned

I did not do as well as I would have like this week; however, I did get $128.54 for a grand total of $11.31. That isn't half bad, if I do say so myself! :)

I am totally amazed! Great job! This was my first week trying CVS. I didn't do nearly that well, but I'm loving it! Can't wait to go back and NOT spend more money! :)
God bless :)

Guinevere -- the $4/$20 coupons I am using are ones you can get for registering your Extracare card at the CVS.com website.

Becca -- I only used 1 coupon per item. Typically, if I mentioned I had 2 coupons I had 2 items I purchased which qualified for the coupon. You CAN use a manufacturer coupon and a store coupon on the same item, for example, I used a $2 CVS Huggies coupon AND a $2 manufacturer Huggies coupon.

I wanted to let you know that on my blog I linked to a way to get $25 free, no strings! I couldn't pass it up, and I am sure you wouldn't want to, either.
I am getting very jealous of these deals you are getting. Is CVS the same as Walgreens?
