  • My CVS plans this week

    It looks like a pretty decent week at CVS, especially if you need Huggies. The Thrifty Mama has a list of this week’s deals.

    I’m planning to get cheap toilet paper:

    1 Cottonelle 20-roll bonus pack $12.88
    1 Colgate MaxFresh toothpaste $2.99
    1 Dove Men+Care Body and Face Wash $5.49

    – $4 off $20 purchase coupon that arrived in last week’s mail
    – $1/1 Colgate Total from the 1/17 SS insert or February All You Magazine
    – $1.25/1 Dove Men+Care from today’s RP
    – $1/1 Cottonelle printable coupon
    – $6 + $6 ECBs

    Pay $2.21 + tax
    Receive: $4 ECB for Cottonelle, $2 ECB for Colgate, $5.49 ECBs for Dove

    Then I can roll those ECBs into this transaction:

    1 Soyjoy 6-pack $6
    1 Dove Men+Care $5.49
    1 Bumble Bee tuna pouch $1 (I think it will still be this price)

    – $1/1 Dove Men+Care printable coupon
    – $4 + $2 + $5.49 ECBs

    Pay tax only
    Receive: $6 ECB for Soyjoy + $5.49 ECB for Dove

    There’s a limit of 2 on the Dove Men+Care, and a limit of 6 on the Soyjoy. I think many stores are out of the Soyjoy at this point, but I saw some at my store last week.

    That $4/$20 coupon I plan to use in the first transaction was a pleasant surprise last week. It wasn’t addressed to me, the Extra Care cardholder, but to my husband or current resident, so I think everyone in the neighborhood must have gotten one. The mailer actually had two $25 pharmacy coupons, and it just so happens that I need to pick up a prescription so I’ll be able to use a gift card to pay for my transactions. In essence, I’ll be able to get all of the above just for the cost of the prescription!
