Exciting Giveaway and Sales Plans!

One of the frugal blogs I subscribe to can be found here. This great coupon stacker is going to be featured in the March issue of Redbook!  As a celebration she is giving away a $50 gift card to Walmart! Just take a look at her site and you’ll receive valuable advice that will save you much more than winning that gift card!

Plans for this week involving CVS:

Transaction #1

EARinse $7.99 OOP (out of pocket) earn $7.99 in ECB (Extra Care Bucks) = Free

Children’s Chewable Aspirin $1.99 OOP earn $1.99 in ECB = Free

Total: $9.98 + tax – $9.98 ECB = virtually FREE!

Transaction #2

Dove Cream Oil $7.99 – $1.50 AY (All You) coupon = $6.49 OOP earn $2 in ECB

Ziplock Bags on sale 2/$4.99 – $1.50/2 AY coupon = 2/$3.50 or $1.75 each

Total: $9.99 + tax – $10 ECB from last transaction = $0.00 OOP, Get back $2 ECB = Profit!

Transaction #3

Maybelline Volume XL Seduction Plumper $8.99, earn $5 ECB

Total: $8.99 – $2 ECB from last transaction = $6.99 OOP, earn $5 ECB to roll-over for next time!

Total for CVS: $17.00 OOP with $5 ECB left over = $12.00 spent for $34.00 in merchandise!

Plans for this week involving Walgreens:

Transaction #1

Clorox Toilet Wand refills 2/$6, earn $2 RR (Register Rewards)

Total: $6 + tax OOP, $2 to roll-over

Transaction #2

Glade Scented Oil refills 2/$5 – $1/2 MC (manufacturers coupon) = 2/$4 – $2 RR from previous transaction = $2.00 OOP, get $2 mail-in-rebate

Total : $2.00 OOP

Total for Walgreens: $8 OOP – $2 rebate = $6 for $12 in merchandise!

There is always the chance that they will be out-of-stock on something, which is why it is good to go early in the week.  I have to send my husband because we work opposite hours and it ends up being easier for him to go.  So, for fun I paste the pictures of items and attach the coupons for each transaction on a piece of paper.  That way when he goes to CVS tomorrow for me, he can have some help finding the Lip Plumper!  What a great husband I have!
