CVS Trip 7/27

I had such a disappointing trip to CVS today. I had to get rainchecks for all the items that were free after ECBs - so that makes it two weeks in a row. Thank goodness CVS rainchecks don't expire. Hopefully I'll be able to use this to my advantage and combine it with a $/$$ coupon. Here are the two lonely items I picked up:
Schick Quattro razor $8.99, get $2 (look for the bonus boxes)
used $3 CVS Schick coupon (mailer)
used $4 Schick coupon
Colgate toothpaste $2.88, get $2
used $1 Colgate coupon
used $2.97 ECB & $.99 ECB (adjusted down to $.90)
=$.48 OOP, received $4 ECBs

Save those rainchecks for the week after next. Not only will you get ECBs for all the free items, they are giving you $5 wyb $15 worth of CVS school supplies :)
