    At CVS at Hwy 40/42 they had Colgate toothpaste 4.6 oz on sale for 87 cents so I got toothpaste for 37 cents. Not as big a tube as the ECB deal, but I got instant savings and a new tube of toothpaste!

    Now, I stopped in to get my cream egg tonight, the cashier told me they weren't ringing in correctly, so he rang in the mini eggs which he said *should* ring up right, but they didn't. He voided out the mini eggs and rang in the cream egg, and it too rang at 87 cents. He had his manager on the phone the whole time.

    Eventually he price adjusted the egg down to 75 cents, then he had to manually issue the ECB. Dunno why, maybe it's their system, but he issued me an ECB for $1, not the anticipated 75 cents. I've gone in with rainchecks before for $X.99 back in ECBs and it always rounds it up to the next dollar. I dunno.

    lol Faye!

    Thanks Brassy - good price.

    The mini egg ECB is ringing just fine at the Clayton CVS. They taste just fine as well. ;-)

  • brassy Feb 20, 2011

    I used my 2.25 Electrasol coupon at Target. Tabs are 2.50 - 2.25 = .25

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Feb 20, 2011

    Thanks for the heads up jzka - we are headed to the park and I think I'll stop by CVS for my mini eggs on the way home. :-)

    Picked up my Cadbury egg, but it rang up .87 and the extra bucks didn't print, so the cashier printed out a $1 extrabucks! I will use it to buy another Cadbury egg.

    Plenty of Purex at the Village Walk location in Holly Springs this am, but I have a raincheck for Listerine Zero from last week and still none in stock :(

    75% off everything Valentine's, plus loads of make-up.

    Cadbury Eggs.... on my way to CVS!!!
    I LOVE THEM!!!

  • marybethwright06 Feb 20, 2011

    I LOVE Cadbury Creme Eggs ... it is with great shame that I tell you they never make it into the baskets! The only candy I Love more is Free Cadbury Creme Eggs!

  • Oxymoron02 Feb 20, 2011

    Cadbury eggs *might* just be my kryptonite. I can avoid almost all other holiday candy all year and never notice. I get twitchy when I start seeing them in stores.

    As a rule, I try not to buy them until March, and the scale thanks me for it. Looks like I'll be making an exception this week. Here's hoping it doesn't tank my whole Easter candy season. :P

    @Mommy2Caleb, correct. You have to pay for them, then you get an ECB for 99 cents off your next order. So long as you eventually use that ECB, the jelly beans are functionally free (you still pay the sales tax). In a perfect world, you "roll" your ECBs every week, taking ECBs from last weeks good deals and freebies and reducing your Out Of Pocket (OOP) expense this week while generating more ECBs to use later.

    @PictureQueen, start with CVS if convenient. There's is the easiest to understand, the most consistent store to store, and more friendly than Wags. The others can be easily picked up after you've mastered CVS.
