CVS run – 8/21/08, $2.13 .oop cost! August 21, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — handfulofquietness @ 5:16 pm

We stopped by the bank after Publix and then went to CVS. It was very quiet there today, thankfully! The only downside to this trip is I came away with NO Ecbs leftover, which I don’t like to do, but the batteries were unplanned and yet were such a great deal I couldn’t resist. We go through sooooooo many batteries with Ryan’s toys AND the monitor takes AAA batteries, and since I use it every night with Ryan and will with Ethan, I couldn’t pass them up!!

Transaction 4

Baby shoes – $7.99, had $5 ecb tag on it, but it was old… below

Duracell 12pk batteries, $8.99 reg, sale for $2.25

used $2/10 coupon

paid $8.90 oop first, then realized no ecb’s printed. She went and looked at the tag – it was from last week, so invalid. I returned the shoes, she said not to worry about the change thing..I was confused but said ok. I went to the car, where I realized that because I used the coupon on the transaction to begin with, but returned the shoes, I actually ended up making out with the set of batteries only costing $.27 after tax – NOT my intention at ALL, but the manager gave them to me that way!!

So I walked away with no ecb’s printed, BUT I did get batteries that I needed! I’ll start again next week!

  1. I see you didn’t save any M&Ms for me. 🙂

    Dang. Great deals!!! Where’d u find the Oral B Qs? I have the Crest ones. Id like to do the Oral Bs instead of so many tooth pastes.

    Alana – I clipped them from the 8/3/08 SS insert. 🙂 It was for one pulsar or 2 indicator brushes.
