Frugal Finds: Week of 05/30/10

Scored Big time this week at Target!

Started with a $5 gift card I received a couple of months back and a $9.99 Rebate Visa Card that I had received from CVS (didn't have 9.99 left, but still had some money on it)

Transaction #1:

10 Sobe Waters (10 for $10)


$2.00 (4x.50 coupons from
$1.00 (Buy 5 get 1 free coupon)
$5.00 Gift Card

Total due: $2.00 plus tax (paid with a rebate gift card so $0 OOP!!)

Received $5 Gift Card back!!

Transaction #2:


1 Scrubbing Bubbles Cleaner - $8.69
10 WW Dinners - 17.90 ($1.79 each)

Total: $26.59


$3.00 Scrubbing Bubbles Target coupon
$5.00 Scrubbing Bubbles IP coupon
$4.00 WW coupon
$5.00 Gift Card

Total: 17.00

$26.59-$17.00 = 9.59 (9.90 with tax)

Still had money on my Rebate Debit card, used $6.00 of that
Paid $3.90 OOP!!

Aaaand, received a $5.00 Gift card again...

So I received $36.59 worth of product for only $3.90 that day!! And I still have a $5.00 Gift card to spend!!

Isn't it fun! I earned a $10 CVS gift card at Gather about year ago and at the time I didn't have to pay tax if I paid with an extra buck. So I took that $10 to see how far I could go, like you are doing, but I was able to start out with a coupon for a free product that gave extra bucks which really helped. Anyways, I shopped 17 times (the last three is when they started charging tax)and I got over $700 in free stuff with that $10. So fun.

Wow, you did awesome! It IS fun! I am the step above the "Casual CVSer" but I just love paying almost nothing for stuff! After my first purchase, I have saved just over 90% from the cost of the products I bought! Thanks so much for your site, it is so helpful!
