I have never, never done a triple transaction at CVS. I did a double once and got all confused and just about left crying. But next week there are multiple deals that I want to take advantage of so I spent about a half hour this evening planning it all out. It requires 3 separate transactions but I'm feeling confident to quite confident and I really think I can pull it off. I should mention that I try to stick to a weekly $5 out-of-pocket limit at CVS. However, I'm usually well under that so I can afford to go over every once in awhile and this plan will get me in at just over 5 smackaroos. I'll get to that plan momentarily; but first, here are the freebies next week (Thanks to I Heart CVS for the preview):
Zantrex-3, 2 pack @ 4.99, earns 4.99 ECBs (I have no idea what this is, you guys.) Loreal Age Perfect Pro Calcium @ 15.99, earns 15.99 ECBs (I don't know what this is either. I think it's a moisturizer?)
There's also an awesome deal on batteries, and if this is your first week trying your hand at CVS this would be a good, easy way to begin. Everyone needs batteries, right? Buy $20 worth of Duracell batteries, get 15 ECBs. Prices are 5.99 or 9.99 (so get 2 @ 5.99 and 1 @ 9.99 and you should be good to go.) There are 1.00/1 coupons in circulation and this Sunday there will be .75/1 coupons in the paper to make this an even better deal.
There's a Glade deal as well. Buy $10 in Glade and get 5 ECBs. There were oodles of Glade coupons in a recent paper. That's right, I said oodles.
And the savings on healthy/green products: Kashi GoLean bars and Clif bars are $1 each. There are coupons for these in the Whole Deal flyer. Vickery and Clarke- Buy $15 worth, get 5 ECB. I've been itching to try this line; it's exclusive to CVS and is paraben-free, sulfate-free, phthalate-free.
And finally, here is my plan. Plans. Whatever.
Transaction #1- (2) Duracell @ 5.99 each (1) Duracell @ 9.99 -use (2) 1.00/1, (1) .75/1 (4) Glade candles @ 2.50 each -use (2) 1.50/2 Total: 31.97 + tax Use $5/$30 (emailed to me this week) Coupons 20 ECBs Pay 1.22 oop, earn 20 ECBs
Transaction #2- That unknown Loreal thing @ 15.99 -use 1.00/1 Loreal Moisturizer from a few weeks ago $5 in Vickery & Clarke Total: 20.99 + tax Use $3/$15 Coupon 16 ECBs Pay .99, earn 15.99 ECBs
So I'll be paying under $6 out of pocket for a zillion batteries, 4 candles, a weird moisturizer and some long-awaited Vickery and Clarke goodies. The biggest bummer is that I'll have to pay for my papers this week but it's a small price to pay for an almost-endless supply of almost-free batteries.
