CVS is my friend once again.

I got a $5/$30 emailed to me last week but was having a hard time coming up with $30 worth of stuff to get... until I realized I had a CRT for $3 off any Almay cosmetic product. Since the Pure Blends foundation and powder are 13.99 this week and generating 10 ECBs I was able to pair the CRT with a 1.00/1 Almay coupon (expired today) to get the powder for free. Plus it got my total up high enough to use the $5/$30. JACKPOT.

Transaction #1-
(1) 12-roll pack Earth Essentials toilet paper @ 5.00
(1) Almay Pure Blends powder @ 13.99, used 3.00/1 CRT and 1.00/1 coupon
(12) Soyjoy Bars @ 1.00 each, used 2.00/10 coupon

Used $5/$30, paid with 15.99 ECBs, paid 4.00 out of pocket and got back 22 ECBs.

Transaction #2-
(8) Soyjoy bars, used four BOGO coupons
(2) Pampers wipes @ 3.49 each

Paid with 10 ECBs, paid .98 oop and got back 8 ECBs.

So even though I paid 4.98 out of pocket total I made an additional 4.00 back in ECBs, so basically I'm only out 98 cents for all of this. Huzzah!

Great job at CVS. I love this store.

I didn't have any super cool coupons to use, but I did have a $3 off 15, and I thought the Almay foundation deal was pretty good, so I sprung for it. And I'm happy to report that the foundation works really well. I might go back and get more, or get the powder.
