Finally,we can drink Coke!

xtracarelogo1

We’ve been really thirsty lately around my house! I refuse to buy soda for more than $2 a 12 pack.. and lately the prices seem to just get larger as the packs are reduced to 8 packs!

Thankfully, CVS and the ECB program are coming to my rescue. I’ll be getting my 12 packs for only $1 each!!!

Here’s my plan for today.. broken down into 3 transactions.

Transaction #1

2 Adidas Action 3 deodorant 3.99 x2=7.98 EARN 6 ECB  (-2 $1 off coupons from a recent insert and -4 ECB’s on hand from last week) = 1.98 cash needed.

Transaction #2

3 Kellogg’s Cereal $10 EARN 5 ECB (– 3 $1 off PRINTABLE coupons, – 6 ECB’s from Transaction #1)= 1.00 cash needed

Transaction #3

5 Coke 12 packs $20 EARN 10 ECB (– 5 $1 off My coke Rewards coupons, – 5 ECB from Transaction #2) = 10.00 cash needed

I will be spending $12.98 in cash.. yeah, I know seems kinda high…

but leaving the store with 10 ECB= 2.98 OOP for all of that!

UPDATE: I ended up only doing 2 transactions.. the Coke first and then the rest. Ended up with 11 ECB’s. 🙂

Rolled $4ECB

0801new_sck_intplus_pic

My favorite Razors helped me roll 4ECB’s.

Here’s my CVS Scenario:

1 Schick Intuition PLus Razor 8.99

-4 coupon (recent insert)

_4 ECB from last week

Subtotal: .99 plus tax= 1.34

EARN 4 ECB’s.

Basically I got 2 razor “refills” for $1

Gotta love CVS. 🙂

fooled by the small print

I must be a bit out of practice.. I went into CVS today for just a few items that I saw in this weeks ad without checking out other bloggers or Hot Coupon World first….

I THOUGHT I was going to get 2 ECB’s for buying my gallon of milk… but I totally missed the whole section below it in the ad that states that you need to ALSO buy 4 boxes of cereal. 😦

Here’s what my ad said:

Milk 2.79

2 Extra Care Bucks

=.79

“It’s like getting your mild for .79!

Then down below it, there’s a sale on cereal 4/$10 and THEN a statement about the 2 ECB’s WHEN YOU BUY BOTH in small print.

Well, I am a bit annoyed about this… it was VERY misleading if you ask me!

Anyway…

The Crest Pro Health deal worked just fine

I bought 2 Crest Pro Health for 2.88 each used a .75 off coupon and a $1 off coupon…and earned $4 ECB’s =.01 OOP for both!!!

I also picked up a raincheck for the FREE after ECB’s Edge Shave Gel.

Saving while sick

I haven’t updated any of my savings posts lately because I’ve been fighting a bad head cold for the past few weeks. No serious shopping going on lately for me!

I must say though, I’ve been very grateful for all the boxes of Kleenex and coughdrops and medicines that I’ve stockpiled since last summer!

I have a few things I plan to run out and get at Walgreens and CVS this week though…

Walgreens

I still have over $20 on my gift card, so I will be bringing all of this home for free. 🙂

CVS

Johnson & Johnson Adhesive Pads with Neosporin $4.98

Johnson & Johnson Travel First Aid Kit .99

-$3/2 Johnson & Johnson
