I had to get one unplanned item and that was children's cold medicine. Evan has been sick for days and I was running low on Triaminic. Thankfully, I had a $1.50 off coupon and CVS had an instant coupon of $2.00. Still the medicine cost me $8.50! I will be sure to keep my eyes out for good stock up prices on medicine for the kids so I don't have to pay retail when they get sick.
ECBs earned: $11.99Purchased:
2 Jumbo packs Pampers Cruisers Size 4
1 bottle Crest Pro-Health mouthwash
1 tube Colgate toothpaste
1 bottle Triaminic day time
1 bottle Triaminic night time
The diapers were on sale for $8.97 a pack and I earned $3.00 ECBs on the purchase of each pack. I also had a $2.00 off coupon. This made the diapers $3.97 a pack after coupons and ECBs.
The mouthwash was on sale for $3.99, I had a $2.00 off coupon and received $2.00 ECBs. This means I made $0.01 on the purchase of the mouthwash.
The Colgate was $3.99, I had a $1.00 off coupon and received $3.99 ECBs. This means I made $1.00 on the purchase of the toothpaste.
I made sure to scan my bag tag so I am now only 2 scans away from $1.00 of Extra Care Bucks. For those that don't know. If you purchase a bag tag at CVS and have it scanned each time you make a purchase, even when picking up prescriptions, you will earn $1.00 every 4 times you have the bag scanned. I keep my bag tag with my Extra Care card so I don't forget to have it scanned.
