Today’s shopping trip brought me to CVS and Rite Aid. Most of the damage was done at CVS. Let’s see if I can go through what I did to make some money. I probably could have done better but that is something you always say when you come home if you are a coupon nut like me.
First thing I did was go to the card scanner and it printed out some coupon for a woman’s haircare product I didn’t need and a coupon for greeting cards. Neither one I could use so I put it in the canister for someone else to grab. I tried to scan again but the reader was done printing for the day.
CVS had Paper mate pens on sale which are usually $2.19 but on sale for 99 cents. If you have a CVS Extra Bucks card you got back 99 cents in rewards so that is free. I needed some cereal for breakfast and CVS had a sale buy one box of General Mills Cheerios and get a second one free. The price of the first box was suppose to be $5.19 but I noticed in the store that there was a peel off coupon on a box for $1 off so I made sure to give that one to the clerk and she peeled it off and took the $1 off so it was only $4.19 out of pocket and the second box was free. Not bad 2 boxes of cereal for a little over $4. I put up my $5 in extra bucks rewards and with tax my total was .27 cents.
I also got a rain check for the new Gillette ProGlide razor which will only cost me $2.97 next time I go. So all in all after getting back .99 cents in rewards bucks which I will use when I pick up the razor my end total was + 75 cents. According to the receipt I saved $11.95. Not bad at all.
