CVS 4/17

I made a run to CVS Saturday night - I was hoping to capitalize on the overlapping deals and use some CRTs that I had received there.  Here is what I got:
2 CVS single roll toilet paper 2/$1
used $1 CVS paper product CRT
6 Vitamin waters $1 each
used (3) $1/2 Vitamin water coupons
CVS mens body wash $.99
used $1 CVS body product CRT
2 Thermacare products $2.49 each, get $2.49
2 Revlon lipsticks BOGO 50% off and get $3 wyb $10
used (2) $3 Revlon coupons
used $5/2 Revlon lip product CRT
A&D diaper cream $6.49
used $1 A&D coupon
used $5 A&D CRT
used $5/$30 CVS coupon
used $7 ECBs
=$2.33 OOP, received $7.98 ECBs

Because the Revlon deal was overlapping the $3 ECB had to be manually printed out.  Thank goodness there were great cashiers working that night since they knew what to do!  I had not even realized that the Revlon was on sale this past week so I really scored on the lipstick!!  I paid $7.99 for one and $3.99 for the second so after the coupons and ECB I got two tubes of lipstick for a profit of $2.02 - can't beat a deal like that!!

This week's sales aren't all that exciting.  I will probably do the Thermacare on my other card and use up some more CRTs.  I have some for Huggies wipes that should make them pretty inexpensive.  Any great deals that you saw at CVS?  Let me know!

I put up some freebies over on SamsSecrets.com. The Halle perfume is one I really want to find. That would be great for taking on trips or for stocking/gift basket stuffers :)
