CVS Trip 10/1

Today I went to CVS to redeem my quarterly ECB's for all three cards that I use. Here's what I received:

Red Star card: $0.50
Yellow Star card: $1.00
Green Star card: $2.00

These ECB's don't expire until 11/15/2010. Try not to lose them before you spend them if you are planning on saving them!


After I got these from the big red machine, I grabbed two more of the freezey pops on the yellow card.



Transaction #1 Card: Yellow Star
ITEMS:
2 Fun Pops Freezey Pops 100 ct minis/box @ $0.49 = $0.98

GREEN BAG TAG

COUPONS USED:
1 CVS -$1.00 ECB - quarterly ECB's

subtotal: .00
tax: .00
TOTAL: $0.00

Total ECB's Received: $1.00 GBT

At the bottom of the receipt, it states that my savings is $7.98. I love how I can get 200 miniture freezer pops complete FREE!

Right now my favorite CVS has a lot of clearance items, at a 50% discount. I'm hoping to grab a few items for Christmas gifts, but I'm waiting on my store to get the Oral B Vitality Rechargeable toothbrush in. I read somewhere that some of the warehouse may have ran out. I was hoping to roll the ECB's to make money on the toothbrush deal, so that I could have some ECB's to blow without messing up my plans for next weeks shopping trip.

Freebies For Me: A Freecycle Pick-Up

I was really busy yesterday, and one of the things I had on my to do list was a Freecycle pick up. I LOVE Freecycle! For those of you who don't know what Freecycle is you can click HERE to read more about it! I'll dedicate a full post to Freecycle sometime soon. Anyways, I had a pick up yesterday for some office supplies. This is what I picked up!


5 - 5" 3 ring binders
9 - 8 set 3 hole punch tabbed dividers
10 - file folders
A TON - inter-department envelopes

I was so happy when I saw all of the goodies that I picked up for FREE! Now I have a binder big enough to use as my coupon binder (I used the white binder and I'll update soon with pictures of how far along it is) AND hold my full pencil case; along with enough tab dividers to organize my *new* coupon binder. I plan on using the other binders to organize my coupons to trade, rebates, and other promo offers. I'm using the envelopes to organize my expired coupons to trade and to send over seas, and coupons that I've ran out of room to put in my binder. I'm not sure what to do with the folders yet, but I'm sure they'll be put to good use soon.

I'm thinking of crafting, or having someone craft for me rather, a zipper cover for my coupon binder. I really liked my zipper binder because I had the extra security that even if my binder did fall, I wouldn't have to play bajillion coupon pick up in the middle of the isle. I hate that.

Anyway, I'll try to post more Freecycle pick ups to show ya'll all the different things you can score for free. Please tell me what ya'll think.

CVS Trip 9/30

Total Cost w/tax Out of Pocket (w/o rebate and ECB's): $4.79
Total Cost w/tax (after rebate and ECB's): $1.79


Transaction #1 Card: Red Star
ITEMS:
1 Globe Brand Desk Lamp @ $3.99 (was $7.99 w/ 50% clearance) - Has $2.00 rebate peelie on front

GREEN BAG TAG

subtotal: 3.99
tax: .27
TOTAL: $4.26

Total ECB's Received: $1.00 GBT



Transaction #2 Card: Yellow Star
ITEMS:
1 Fun Pops Freezey Pops (minis) 100 ct @ $0.49 (was $4.00 w/ 87.5% off I believe)

GREEN BAG TAG

subtotal: .49
tax: .4
TOTAL: $0.53

Total ECB's Received: $0.00



I'm horrible with impulse buying, but at least I used a rebate right? I bought the lamp on impulse but I think it's  acceptable, I mean $1.26 after rebate and ECB (GBT) for a desk lamp with an energy saving bulb included is a price book price for me. Also, I didn't wait to buy the lamp because the rebate states that the purchase must be made by Sept. 30th, 2010. I was lucky enough to make my transactions before midnight this time : ) so I think I'm ok as far as the deadline goes. Also I am planning on buying another box of freezey pops on the same card today so I can get my $1.00 green bag tag ECB and only pay $0.53 out of pocket. That equals paying tax for 200 freezey pops!
