CVS 5/24 *Update*

I was SO excited with the CVS ad this week. They finally had more than one or two items that were better than free after ECBs and coupons!! I checked out both of the stores in town though and was disappointed that I could not find the Neutrogena money-maker :( Here is all the stuff I got:
Coppertone Kids sunscreen $7.99, get $2
-used $1.50 Coppertone coupon
Revlon nail polish $3.99, get $3
-used $1 Revlon coupon
Gain laundry detergent $5.99, get $2
-used $1 Gain coupon
Colgate toothpaste $2.99, get $2
-used $1 Colgate coupon
Playtex Sport $3.99, get $3
-used $1 Playtex Sport coupon
Clearasil face wash $3.99, get $3.99
-used $2 Clearasil coupon
2 Speed stick deodorant $3.99, get $3.99
-used $5/$30 CVS coupon
-used $24.42 ECBs (had a $4 one that was adjusted down - I should have bought a filler item)
=$.45 OOP, received $23.97 ECBs

I did a similar transaction on Mike's card but was able to build up the ECBs for it. I had started out with $15 and now have $18.97 for that card :)

How did you do at CVS? Were you able to find the Neutrogena sunscreen for $1.99?

I forgot to mention - I had to run to CVS today to pick up a prescription for Noah. I found some Sunsilk shampoo on clearance for only $1.07 - I used the $1 off Sunsilk coupon which made the shampoo only 7 cents!!

I found the Neutrogena Sunblock 1 oz. at the front registers in a basket(at two different stores). Also,the machine generated a $3 of Neutrogena for men, which I used to lower my total to 98 cents + tax and get a $10 ECB!

Thanks Alisa - I plan on going to my CVS tonight or tomorrow and looking around some more. I hope I can find them!!

I need to hit our CVS again and look for the Neutrogena money maker. I have not had time to go back. We bought many of the same things! I only did a few transactions and had leftover ECBs since I knew I would use them again the following week on something!
