A Great Week!

It is a great week at CVS! There are quite a few deals - I managed to do a few this afternoon. I spent most of Sunday getting ready for my couponing class (which is tomorrow night!) that I'm teaching at the college. I think I'm as ready as I'm going to be - wish me luck!!
Onto the deals. Here are the ones I scored today:
4 Tide detergents $6 each
use (4) $1 Tide coupons
Dawn dishsoap $1
use $.25 Dawn coupon
use $5/$25 CVS flu quiz coupon
use $13.98 ECBs
=$2.73 OOP, received $10 ECBs

Gillette Fusion razor $9.29, get $5
use $4 Fusion coupon
Vaseline sheer lotion $7.99, get $7
Covergirl simply ageless blush $10
Covergirl foundation $6.69, get $5 wyb $15 in CG products
use CG buy foundation get CG face product free
use $1 Covergirl coupon
$5/$25 CVS flu quiz coupon
use $4 ECBs
=$2.48 OOP, received $17 ECBs

Looking at my receipt for the Covergirl deal there is an extra $5.99 coupon that was taken off. I have no idea what that coupon would be for but it would explain why my OOP was so low. I had originally decided to do this deal at the last minute because I thought it would be a great way for me to use the $10 ECB from the Tide deal. But because my OOP was less than $10 after all my coupons I was unable to use it.

I will probably repeat these deals on Mike's card since you can't beat getting free makeup AND very, very cheap Tide!

Did I miss some deals? Please share if you found some great deals at CVS!

Grat deals! I am new to this! When you use those $5 for $25 coupons do they add up all of your items first then you give them the $5 for $25 coupon? Or did you do the coupons first. Doesn't seem to add up if not. Please help!

Use the $5/$25 coupon first after they have rung up your purchase. The Tide deal put me exactly at $25 and the CG deal put me over $30.

How did you get them to take your Covergirl coupons? Mine didnt want to take them...I was mad :(

I had to point out to the cashier that it was off the blush. She had originally wanted to substract the $6.69 off for the foundation.

My Mom did the deal tonight and they would only subtract the lowest price on the Covergirl - I guess it just depends on the cashier :(
