CVS Shopping: Week of 9/5/10

Look at all the great stuff I purchased at CVS this week. 

I purchased $48.96 worth of product (after sales/before taxes) and paid $3.28...a savings of 93% overall!  (Note: I forgot the 3 snacks I bought - guess I had already put them away before the pic!)

As I write this post, I am embarassed to see I made 5 trips to CVS; but between the B1G1 free Sobe deal (I can only purchase 6 at a time) and the $3 off $10 grocery coupon that was printing this week there was just too many good deals to pass up!

Transaction #1:

6 Sobes - B1G1 and used 3 B1G1 free coupons = free +tax
2 Trident - 2x.99 - used $1 off 2 coupon = .98
2 Raisin Bran - 2x1.77 - used $1 coupon = 2.54

Total = $3.52

Used $3 off $10 groceries CVS coupon = .52

Threw in 1 CVS Peanut Butter filled pretzel - $1 (not pictured): did this so I could use my $1 ECB and not lose any value...total = $1.52

Used $1 ECB

Total: .52 + tax = .89

Received a .99 ECB from Trident

Transaction #2:

6 Sobes - B1G1 and used 3 B1G1 free coupons = free +tax
1 Airwick imotion - 4.99 - used $3 coupon = .99

Total = .99

Used .99 ECB - Total: 0 + tax = .70

Received $1 ECB for Green Bag tag

Transaction #3:

6 Sobes - B1G1 and used 3 B1G1 free coupons = free +tax
1 Snickers - $1 - used .75 coupon = .25
1 Raisin - $1.77 - used .60 coupon = $1.17
1 Corn Flake/1 Raisin Bran - 2x$1.77 - used $1 coupon = $2.54

Total = $3.96

Used $3 off $10 groceries CVS coupon = .96

Threw in 1 CVS pretzel - .79 (not pictured): did this so I could use my $1 ECB and use the full $1 value (yep, I'm cheap!)...total = $1.75

Used $1 ECB

Total: .75 + tax = $1.11

Transaction #4:

6 Sobes - B1G1 and used 3 B1G1 free coupons = free +tax
1 CVS Snack - $1 (not pictured)
2 Brownie Mixes - 2x$1 = $2

Total = $3.00

Used $3 off $10 groceries CVS coupon = 0 + tax

Total = .23

(This transaction is confusing, since I normally pay 35 cents tax just for the Sobe; I am guessing that the $3 off coupon does something to affect what is taxed, just haven't figured it out yet).

Transaction #5:

6 Sobes - B1G1 and used 3 B1G1 free coupons = free +tax

Total = .35
