    lovetherascals -- if you have just enough in coupons & ECB, the ECB first will bring the total own, but the coupons will eat the tax. Whereas ECB will not eat the tax.

    Oh and I don't usually hold back my manufacturer coupons unless I have a CVS coupon for $/$ purchase. If I do, the I'll give them that one first and then all the rest of the ECBs and manufacturer coupons I have. Just have to make sure they take them all but I've never had any problems at the 2 I go to most often. (Carrboro and Cole Park)

    I went by CVS at lunch and did well. Picked up one of the shave creams, 3x mtn dew cans, blink eye drops and 3 AG cards. I had a coupon for the cards and the shave cream. I also had 4.99 in ECBs from my last trip and close to 13.00 left on my SB gift card. I paid just over 5.00 and got back 13.99 in ECBs for my next trip. I'll take it!

  • lovetherascals Apr 23, 2012

    Why do you do ECBs first then coupons?

    I bought the larger box of Tampax Radiant last week and they had a $3 off any size Radiant coupon so mine will be free this week!

  • stephlw Apr 22, 2012

    Juliemom2 -- how are they free? wouldn't they be 99 cents?

    Had a great trip at CVS today -- love when the combination of coupons and ECB on hand make it a moneymaker and a few cents OOP. I did it just right today with the Revlon deal (had a CVS coupon for $5 off of 2 products that the magic machine printed last week), eye drops, and cards that I only paid 61 cents and got back $14 in ECB. The lady was annoyed with me for withholding my manufacturer coupons until after my ECBs and said she couldn't use the coupons. I told her that it would be fine and to scan them -- she finally did and it worked. I hate having to be adament about it though!

    The Tampax Radiant have coupons in the box. One is for $2 off your next box. If you keep rolling them they are FREE! Also $1.oo off Always, Venus and Cover Girl.

    You are way too kind, itmyownopinion. Actually, I wish I had another 10 or more hours a week to devote to this blog. There are so many more things I want to post but there are just not enough hours in the day. If they keep me on until my kids go to college, then I'll have that extra 10 hours! lol

  • itsmyownopinion Apr 22, 2012

    Faye, you amaze me. You couldn't do more to help unless you picked us all up and drove us to the stores.
