VS CvS Run today – very dissapointing in ways. The flavorice weren’t marked down, they didn’t have Arnicare OR Dawn soap, which totally threw my scenarios off! I was sooooo pickled, then it dawned on me that I’d not eaten anything since last night, and this was almost 1pm!!! I quickly grabbed a candy bar & water, paid & ate quickly. Then I got through the transactions. I also found out that I bought the wrong coupons, I thought they were BOGO any sauve, they were ONLY body wash. I ended up getting a whooooole lot of body wash, but worked it to get some shampoo. Since I have two cards, I can do this a total of 10 times between dh’s card and my card (hey, I checked with CS at CVS and they said it was FINE to have 2!)
So…there’s what I got – I accidently used the wrong CVS card last week when I bought my tampons, so I didn’t get my $5 ecb I was expecting, so I took them back. Interestingly enough, my manager said when you use coupons like I do, when you return something, even w/o ecb’s on that item, you only get at maximum what you paid for the ENTIRE transaction, which was $1.32 in this case. He told me though he would key it in like I had no reciept, even told me next time to say no receipt? I ended up with a GC for $9.72, which wasn’t my choice, but the only thing he could do. 🙂
I happily went shopping…..got tons of Suave, 2 toothpastes, 3 Purex’s b/c I had no more coupons, a small clean & clear, two Covergirl things and a travel pk of tissue as a filler. Looking back I shouldn’t have had to do the tissue, so it skewed my .oop.
I used the gift card on ALL transactions – I still have $.65 left. So if you were really counting .oop it’d be $9.07 oop, but since it was from the gc, I say .oop was $1.32 since that is what was .oop on these. I went in with $7 ecb’s, walked out with $18.99 ecb’s!!! So technically – I made $10.67 on these transactions! YAY!

YAY 🙂 I don’t wear makeup period, but the CG coupon was the last one I had, and I knew it wouldn’t be that tradeable b/c of the CVS deal going off right now, so I said eh forget it – I’ll make the money and give the lipstuff away. I got the blue one, wonder if it’s blue or if it’s just a gloss? hmm…..
Total Value: $110.13, nothing oop b/c GC, made $10.67 ecb’s over what I used & rolled.
