Super Sunday Savings @ CVS: How I spent $15.41 on items worth over $50!

Sunday was hot but I sneaked in a few cool moments at the air conditioned CVS.

I was able to buy over $50.00 worth of items for $15.41!

Here's what I bought:

-4 bottles of Sobe water - $1.59 each x 4 = $6.36 + $0.20 California Redemption Value = $6.56
-2 Dreyer's Ice Creams - 2 for $6.00 ($3.00 each)
-6 cans of Spaghetti & Meatballs - $0.69 each x 6 = $4.14
-1 Tide with Febreeze - $10.97
-2 bags of M&M Pretzels - 2 for $1.00 ($0.50 each)
-1 Greeting Card - $0.89
-1 Greeting Card - $0.49
-1 package of Stride Berry Mint gum - $1.49
-1 box of Tylenol Precise for back & body pain - $5.99
-1 package of 4 cans of Raspberry Acai Celsius - $7.99
-1 box of Biore moisturizer - $4.99 (on clearance/original price: $9.99)

Subtotal without tax: $50.51

Here are the coupons I used to bring my total down to $15.41:

Coupon Total: $37.14

$50.51 (subtotal without tax) - $37.14 (coupon total) = $13.37 (after coupon subtotal)

$13.37 (after coupon subtotal) + $2.04 (California 9.25% tax) = $15.41

Grand total with tax and coupons: $15.41

Plus I got $7.99 Extra Care Bucks (ECBs) from the Celsius drink, $2.00 ECBs from the Tide, $2.00 ECBs from the Tylenol Precise, $1.00 ECB from the M&M Pretzel's, and $1.00 ECB from it being my 4th green bag tag scan.

Total ECBs received: $13.99

Did you notice how I rolled my previous $13.96 in Extra Care Bucks into a new batch of $13.99? That is what helps me in saving so much at CVS.

It's like I only paid for the Tide and Biore moisturizer and got everything else for free!

Great trip!

I love CVS-ice cream, Tide, tylenol and so much more for only $15 with ECB's back!

Thanks for linking up with Tuesday's Trips!

Hard to start a new linky :)
