CVS Trips

I did two CVS transactions today and got some great deals. I scanned my cards at the magic machine and got some great coupons to use! I received a $10/$50 and a $5/$30 so I had to re-work my scenarios so that I could get up to those amounts. All together I only spent $4.79 OOP and built up my ECBs on one card.
Here is what I got:

First transaction:
10 SoyJoy bars $4/4, $4 ECBs wyb 4
-used (3) BOGO Free coupons
3 Always Infinity packs $4.99 each
-used (3) $4 off Infinity coupons
1 24 pk. CVS brand water $3.99 (not pictured)
1 Reese's Pieces $.67 (filler item)
-used $5/$30 CVS coupon
-used $9 ECBs
=$.73 OOP, received $8 ECBs

So even though I bought 10 SoyJoy bars I only received $8 in ECBs. I'm guess you must have to buy them in quantities of at least 4. I'll be going back on Friday and buying at least 2 more of these - hopefully another $2 in ECBs print out for the deal.

Second transaction:
20 SoyJoy bars 4/$4, $4 ECBs wyb 4
-used (2) $2/10 SoyJoy bars coupons
1 Kotex product $3.50
-used (1) $2 Kotex CRT
-used (1) $1 Kotex coupon
2 Always Infinity products $4.99 each
-used (2) $4 Infinity coupons
5 12 pks. Mt Dew 4/$13 get 5th free $3.25 each (not pictured)
-used last $2 Pepsi coupon from Pepsi/Lay's deal
2 Starbucks frapp drinks $2.29 each, get $1 ECB wyb 2
-used (2) $1 Starbucks frapp coupons
-used $10/$50 CVS coupon
-used $18 ECBs
=$4.06 OOP, received $21 ECBs

The bad thing about this transaction is the fact that I now have a $20 ECB to use. I'm going to attempt to use that on Friday - we'll see how that goes. Wish me luck!!

Those Raisin/Almond ones are definitely my favorite - they are the best tasting of the bunch in my opinion :) Looks like you got some great deals there!

I totally hear you on the $20 ECB thing. That will be hard to spend! Thanks for posting on my linky.

I would save that ECB for items that I don't have coupons for but that have good ECBs in return. OR buy a larger priced item that you might not normally buy because it's "too much" to spend.

I can think of lots of way to use a $20 ECB. I would love to have one of those!

I ended up buying some formula with the $20 ECB - I had a coupon for the CVS brand.
