Saturday Savings at CVS

On Saturday I went to the CVS in Milpitas near my house hoping to get some more items from their 3 day Thanksgiving sale that I didn't get Thursday at the CVS in San Jose.

Most of the items were sold out. I was able to find the Old Spice Deodorant that I wasn't able to get on Thursday. I was able to get rain checks on the items that were sold out. Remember, if you can't find something at CVS, you can get a rain check so you won't miss out on the sale.

This is what I got on my first trip:

-1 Old Spice Deodorant x $4.00 each = $4.00
-1 Green Bag Tag (This tag is scanned each time you use a reusable bag. Every 4th scan produces a $1 Extra Care Buck.) x $0.99 each = $0.99
-2 Sobe waters x $1.59 each + $0.10 bottle deposit = $3.28

Total with 9.25% tax on the deodorant and green bag tag and before coupons: $8.73

Coupons used:

-$4.00 Extra Care Bucks
-$0.50 off 1 Green Bag Tag
-1 free Sobe coupon
-Sobe was buy 1 get 1 free so the second Sobe deducted $1.59 automatically

Total with 9.25% tax and coupons: $1.05

Plus I got back $4.00 back in Extra Care Bucks from getting the Old Spice Deodorant.

Savings: $7.68

When I got home, my mom asked if I saw the Con Air Hair Blow Dryer that comes with a free Con Air Curling Iron. I forgot to look so she wanted me to go back to CVS with her to see if there was any left.

Luckily, there was one ONE blow dryer left. I was relieved that we didn't have to ask for a rain check. Also, even though CVS sales begin on Sunday, the Milpitas CVS activates the Sunday sales on Saturday night. I was able to get a head start on the Sunday deals.

My mom loves Puffs tissues and they were on sale for $0.97 each. Since there was an Extra Care Bucks deal where if you spend $20.00 or more on Proctor & Gamble (P&G) products, you get back $5.00 in Extra Care Bucks.

To reach $20.00, I said to my mom lets get 15 boxes of Puffs tissues and then I'd get 2 Crest toothpastes at $2.75 each. The subtotal of the P&G products was $20.05 so that was enough to qualify for the $5.00 Extra Care Bucks deal.

This is what I got on my second trip with my mom:

(I forgot to include the EOS lip balm in the above picture.)

-15 boxes of Puffs tissues x $0.97 each = $14.55
-2 Kids Crest Toothpastes x $2.75 each = $5.50
-2 packs of Kit Kat x $1.00 each = $2.00
-1 Milk x $2.89 each = $2.89
-1 EOS Lip Balm x $2.99 each = $2.99
-1 Conair Blow Dryer x $9.99 each = $9.99
-1 Conair Hair Curler x $7.99 each = $7.99

Total with 9.25% tax and without coupons: $49.70

Coupons used:

-$5.00 off a $25.00 purchase
-$6.99 Extra Care Bucks
-$0.99 Extra Care Bucks
-$2.00 off 1 Kids Crest Toothpaste
-$1.00 off 1 Kids Crest Toothpaste
-$7.99 off Conair Hair Curler making it free with Conair Blow Dryer purchase

Total with 9.25% tax and with coupons: $24.59

Plus I got back $5.00 Extra Care Bucks for getting over $20.00 in P&G products and $2.99 Extra Care Bucks for getting the EOS Lip Balm.

Savings: $25.73
