I'm Back In The CVS Game! Oh Yeah!

As many of you know, CVS has been STINKING with their deals lately. Used to be, I could get free everything each week. Now-a-days, it's like I can barely find a week where there's anything worth buying! Because of this, my precious little Extra Care Bucks (which enable you to roll the deals and pay nothing out of pocket at CVS for all your household items) expired! Yep, you heard me...EXPIRED. All $30 worth!!!

I can't believe I let it happen, but I just didn't go to CVS enough to even notice that they had expired! By the time I noticed, it was too late. So I've been waiting for a "good week" at CVS, so that I could start back up again on gaining a nice stash of Extra Bucks.

The first time you always have to pay out of pocket, to get your first set of Extra Bucks back. After that, you just continue using your Extra Bucks on purchases that give you more Extra Bucks! I really didn't want to have to pay a lot out of pocket, and I when I saw the deals this week, I knew it was a great week to try to pay a little out of pocket and get a nice beginning stash of ECBs to start rolling some deals once again!

Here's how my transaction went down:
I bought:
1 Bayer Contour Meter (I will donate it)
2 Essence of Beauty Body Washes
1 Trial Sized Johnson's Baby Shampoo
1 Trial Sized Aquafresh Extreme Toothpaste

Coupons I used:
(1) $30/1 Bayer Meter (price adjusted it down to $14.99)
(1) $1/1 Johnson' item
(1) FREE trial-sized aquafresh toothpaste
(1) CVS coupon for buy one get one free EoB body wash!!!
(1) Spend $20, get back $4 ECB from Season to Save booklet

ECBs Received:
$5 for Bayer Meter
$4 for each body wash = $8
$4 for spending $20
Total = $17 ECB!

I was really excited about the Essence of Beauty coupon. I walked in and scanned my card at the machine, and that was the first coupon it gave me! What an amazing surprise! It made my night, because that meant I could buy 2 body washes for the price of one, and still get back ECBs for both!

Also, I wanted to pass on the info about the Spend $20, get $4 back. It was very simple. I just handed them the card before I gave them the rest of my coupons. No problem at all! They said as long as the total was over $20 before coupons, I was good to go!

Overall:
Total Spent out of pocket: $5.64
Total Amount Saved: $89.96 (huge chunk was the Bayer meter)
Extra Bucks I got back: $17!!!

So I spent $5.64, and received back $17! I would say that's a great way to get rolling again! I was very pleased at being able to spend so little out of pocket. =)

...And I'm back in the game!!!

Where are these coupons scanners?? I've looked at my CVS and didn't see them. Are they only in some stores? Are they in a certain spot??

From what I've heard, not all stores have them. Most do, though...

Next time you go in, I would ask the cashier if they have a price scanning machine in the store. The price scanning machine is also the coupon printing machine. =)

Hope that helps!

My CVS has them!! I walked in today and there was one in the very front of the store. They must have just got it since last week, because I KNOW it wasn't there before! I also spotted one by pharmacy. =)
