So, here's what I bought: 5 12 packs of Coke Zero, 1 liter bottle of Listerine Mouthwash, 2 Colgate Toothpastes, and 1 9 pack of Charmin Toilet Paper. How much do you think this cost me?
In all, I spent $9.80 out of pocket.....BUT, I still have $5 in CVS bucks to spend next time I shop there. So, really I only spent $4.80!!!!!! AMAZING! If you want to do the same thing, here's what I did:
1. Buy 5 12 packs of Coke (any variety), hand the lady a $4 off $20 purchase coupon (http://delicious.com/er1ca/iheartcvscoupons) You can print one from there, or if your register your extra care card (the CVS card) online, they will e-mail you some!, then give the lady 5 $1 coke coupons (which I printed offline, but now I'm afraid they stopped allowing people to print them), then I already had $3.50 in CVS bucks, so I used that too. So my total was $7.75. But when you buy $20 in coke products, your receipt will print $10 in CVS bucks to use next time.
2. I then had my next purchase ready...buy 1 pack of charmin ultrasoft, 2 colgate max toothpastes, and 1 listerine total care mouthwash. I had a $.25 coupon for the toilet paper (from the Sunday paper), a $.75 coupon and a $1 coupon for the toothpastes (from the Sunday paper), and a $2 coupon for the mouthwash (from the Sunday paper). Then I handed the lady my $10 CVS bucks from my last purchase (the cokes), and payed a total of $2.05. But, when you buy the Charmin you get $1 back in CVS bucks and when you buy the toothpaste (2 of them) you get $4 back in CVS bucks. So, now I have $5 left to spend on my next trip!
Man, this was fun!!! I definitely plan on continuing my CVSing! I'll try to post after each trip and then if you want to follow what I'm buying, I will lay it all out for you. But you will definitely need to start clipping coupons or printing them from the internet! That is key to making this system work for you!!!!!!
