CVS - Taking Advantage of Two Weeks Worth of Sales

My Mom & I hit CVS Saturday night so that we could take advantage of last week's and this week's sales.  I wanted to do the Nature's Bounty deal a couple more times.  (Thanks goes to frugalsuz for posting about this!) 

Trans #1
2 Nature's Bounty Men's Your Life Vitamins $9.99 each (BOGO), get $3
2 Nature's Bounty Vitamin D $8.99 each (BOGO), get $3
used (4) $5 Nature Bounty coupons
Clairol Natural Instincts $5.99, get $2 (not pictured)
used FREE coupon (won in giveaway)
Pampers $8.88
used $2 Pampers coupon
used $5/$20 CVS coupon
=$2.59 OOP, received $8 ecbs

Trans #2
3 12 pks. Mt. Dew 3/$10 (not pictured)
2 Tostitos 2/$7
Stacy's pita chips $3, get $10 wyb $20 in qualifying products
used $1 Stacy's coupon
Pampers $8.88
used $2 Pampers coupon
2 Reinventing Beauty mags $.99 each
1 caramel $.33 (filler to get to $30)
used $5/$30 Medicare CVS coupon
used $15 ecbs
=$8.25 OOP, received $10 ecbs

I had originally planned on doing three transactions so that I was able to also use a $3/$15 that I had but when the cashier hit the total on the first transaction I was actually at -$4.82!!  That's when I added in the Pampers.  I still didn't do too bad considering that altogether I spent $10.84 OOP and gained $3 in ecbs!!  I'm going to do the Pepsi deal once more and then submit for THIS REBATE after I pick up some beer :)
