How I Save Money At CVS: 21 Dec 08
Today I paid $2.09 for $23.54 worth of items. I am trying to see how much free stuff I can get from CVS while spending the least amount of money. Today I finally did three different transactions because I was at a CVS that did not carry all of the free stuff and I was not sure about one of the items.
I also needed to use about $20 worth of ECB because they were going to expire on December 27 which is the day before the next set of sales.
Item: Listerine (ad says 16.9 oz but bottle says 500ml and I could not convert. Some people picked it up and put it back because they thought it was the wrong one. Also this one is green and the one in the ad is blue and has a different name.)

I got a bunch of coupons for other items from CVS from the register….but I am mad that the machine at the front of the store did not print any coupons. This always happens at this particular store so I can’t wait til I go home for the next CVS sale.
MFR = manufacturer coupon
ECB = extra care bucks
