    Yeah but what gets me is the prices. I don't still I get there and it throws me off

  • pss3 Jan 9, 2013

    Sounds like you got some great deals and figuring out the system!

  • sleath24 Jan 8, 2013

    I went back and got 4 boxes of Vitamins $6.99 each ... They were BOGO 1/2 off... Plus $9.00 plus ... $10 ECB...total was $2.73 .. Receiving $6.00 ECB

  • sleath24 Jan 7, 2013

    So I went and spent about $6 on first transaction. 2nd O spent 30 for $10.00

  • sleath24 Jan 7, 2013

    I'm heading now to try...

  • sleath24 Jan 7, 2013

    Pss3 oooo ok I c now.

  • pss3 Jan 7, 2013

    So, my actual two transactions looked like this:

    #1: 2 Stayfree pads, 1 Bayer A1C meter, 1 pampers diapers, 1 pampers wipes. I used a bogo Stayfree coupon, a $7 off Bayer coupon, $2/1 pampers diapers, and .50/1 wipes. I used my $10 and $4 ECB's, paid $2.44 OOP and got $13 in ECB'S back.

    #2: 1 simple facial cleanser, 1 simple facial moisturizer, 1 Nivea shaving cream, 1 Nivea after shave cream, and a birthday card. I used $2/1 simple cleanser, 1 $3/1 simple moisturizer, free shaving cream when you buy after shave cream, and a $4/20 facial care coupon that printed from the cvs coupon machine. Used the $13 ECB's from transaction 1 and paid $2.28 OOP then got $10 ECB's for next time.

  • pss3 Jan 7, 2013

    Sleath24, the trick is to buy items that give you ECB's and then use those ECB's to buy more items with ECB's. For example, Aveeno lotion this week is on sale and if you buy 2 lotions, you get a $6 ECB back. There was a $3/2 Aveeno coupon in this week's paper. So if you used that coupon with two of the least expensive lotions (I think they are around $4) you would spend about $5 OOP and get a $6 ECB that you can use on your next purchase.

    For the deals I got this week, I had a $10 ECB from last week plus my quarterly ECB of $4 (CVS gives you 2% of your actual cash spent back each quarter). I did two transactions to help keep my costs low by using the ECB's from the first transaction on the second.

  • sleath24 Jan 7, 2013

    To pss3....may I ask how u did that.. I'm a first time shopper going for the deals at cvs..... Any advice? It seems like I'm missing how to do it. Please help!

    Diane - with CVS, if an item is on sale BOGO and you have a BOGO coupon, both will be free. The coupon pays for one of the items and the CVS sale pays for the other one. When I went today, I bought 4 packages, used 2 BOGO coupons, and all 4 were free.
