How I Save Money At CVS: 15 March 2009

Today I paid $0.44 for $52.97 worth of items. I had to throw away a coupon for $2 ECB because it expired on the 11th and I did not use it. I am very upset because that is $2 of free money that I could have used to get something. Added to stupid tax for the month.

  1. Don’t throw away those expired ECB’s!! Sometimes the stores will still take them! At one store I shop at, one of the cashiers won’t take an expired one, but 2 of the managers at the same store will…. try it!

  2. Expired ECB?? How could you! 🙂

    Did you not make it to CVS last weekend? That’s a shame, because the magic red spit machines were producing $/$$ coupons valid through this weekend. I suspect CVS might be replacing the email coupons with the CRT ones to limit how many we can use, since they usually email them every second Thursday, and none came out this week. I love those things!

    • I deserve to be spanked with my coupon book right? I had not been impressed with the CVS stuff lately and missed a few Sundays, so I did not notice that one ECB.
