I love CVS!
Since the beginning of this year I’ve been learning about how to shop at CVS. It is so much fun! Today, I went shopping, and CVS paid me 48 cents!
So here is my attempt at telling you how that worked out.
Saturday trip to CVS:
The Aussie shampoo and styling mousse were on sale for $2.99 each and receive $2 reward bucks for each. I also used a coupon for buy one Aussie shampoo, get $2 off an Aussie styling product. So I paid $4 plus tax for the hair products, and got back $4 reward bucks, making them free excluding tax!
Today’s trip to CVS:
Transaction 1 – Gillette men’s body wash was on sale for $4 and receive $4 reward bucks. I used the $4 reward bucks from Saturday to buy one body wash and used a buy one get one free coupon for the second body wash. The two bottles rang up free and I got back $8 reward bucks.
Transaction 2 – Little Swimmers were on sale for $6.99, and I also used a $1 off coupon. BBQ sauce was on sale for $1.50 and I used a $1 off coupon. Mentos were 99 cents (see story about mentos below). So my total was $7.52. I used $8 reward bucks from first transaction. So, I got paid 48 cents! YAY!
All in all, out of pocket for everything in the picture, I paid $3.52 plus tax.
The mentos would not be in the picture if it wasn’t for my sugar loving genes passed on to Savannah. She picked them up and opened them while I was figuring out everything at the cash register. She knows better now, and mommy enjoyed the chewy munchies on the way home! Daddy enjoyed more of them while I was taking the picture. Here’s a rabbit trail, Savannah got new markers today for staying dry and clean for 2 days! Yay, Savannah!
So really and truthfully, does how I explained everything above make any sense? Not about the mentos – about the shopping at CVS? Here’s a link to the first article I read about it: Money Saving Mom – CVS 101. I’m very grateful to the Lord for introducing me to Money Saving Mom’s blog. I come home from grocery shopping excited! Thank you Lord for teaching us new things, and for Your sweet provision!
