CVS Trip 8/29

I will post my "How To Shop @ CVS" later, I still have to get all of the information together; but in the mean time, here is on of my recent trips.

Okay so this is one of my more complicated trips to CVS, but I think it was really great. I went at midnight on Saturday, so that I could try to get the deals for both weeks, and I am in the process of de-stashing my rainchecks.

Transaction #1 Card #1
ITEMS:
Raincheck - Spend $10, get $3 ECB on certain Glade products-
4 Glade 4oz candles @ $2.50 each - $10

Raincheck - Blink tears .50 oz pa $7.99 w/ $7.99 ECB from last week or so -
1 Blink Tears Lubricating Eye Drops @ $7.99

Raincheck - M&M Pretzel pa $1/2 w/ $1 ECB wyb 2-
2 M&M Pretzel single bags @ $1/2

GREEN BAG TAG

COUPONS USED:
1 CVS -$5/$15 purchase
1 CVS -$0.50 wyb 2 M&M Pretzel
4 MAN -$1/1 Glade Jar 4oz Candle

1 CVS -$2.99 ECB
1 CVS - $5 ECB

subtotal: .00
tax: .55
TOTAL: $0.55

Total ECB Received: $11.99

(Some people, , would break it down even further by subtracting the total value of ECB's used to pay for the transaction and by subtracting the total amount of oop I actually had to pay from the total value of the ECB's received {$11.99-$0.55-$7.99=$3.45}; which shows how the store paid me to take the items home! )

NOTES: I realize that you are only supposed to have one card, and I do. I have one card, my fiance has one card, and my mother-in-law has one card. I just do all of the shopping! One of my good friends wants me to do his shopping too, I just don't know if I'll be able to keep it all straight! Also it seem like early Christmas shopping for some people. I know next week (9/5-9/11) at CVS the varsity Snuggie will be on sale and there is a $5.00 off printable coupon, making for another cheap Christmas gift.

Tell me what ya'll think!
