Thrifty Tuesday @ CVS - All I spent was $0.30!

My $0.30 Thrifty Tuesday trip to CVS was made possible by a transaction I did this past Sunday. At CVS this week, Candy Corn and Alive! vitamins are free when used with Extra Care Bucks (ECB).

I used my $0.99 ECB on the Candy Corn. Then I used $9.00 ECB and a $1.00 off Alive! vitamins coupon from coupons.com which made them both free. After I did this transaction, a $5 off a $15 purchase coupon printed at the end of my receipt that's valid until 9/15/10.

I wanted to use the $5 off a $15 purchase coupon before it expired so I went tonight and bought the following items for a total of $0.30!

Here is what I bought:

-6 bottles of Pina Colada flavored Sobe - $1.59 each x 6 bottles = $9.54 + 0.30 California Redemption Value = $9.84
-5 boxes of Wheat Thins -$1.00 each x 5 = $5.00
-2 bags of Starburst - $1.50 each x 2 = $3.00

Total: $17.84

Here are the coupons I used to bring my total down to $0.30.

-$5 off a $15 purchase coupon
-6 free bottle of Sobe coupons I won from Sobe's Heads or Tails Instant Win Game that's now over.
-2 $1.00 off any box of Wheat Thins I printed from Wheat Thins' Facebook
-$1.00 Extra Care Buck

Coupon total: $17.54

$17.84 total - $17.54 coupon total = $0.30 is all I paid!

It's like I only paid for the California Redemption Value :D
