How I Save Money At CVS: 30 August

Posted on Aug 31, 2009 in CVS | 5 comments

Today I paid $2.37 out of pocket for $17.27 worth of items. I got these great Glad soy candles that smell extra great because I have this addicition to scented candles. The promotion on the large candles was buy one and get the value in ECBs and I had a coupon for one free small candle. I also had a coupon for $3.00 off two large candles so that is why I got two.

I think today was a really great deal as I got three great candles for the price of less than what the small one alone cost.

  2. It is amazing how much money you have actually been able to accrue threw using your CVS card. I can’t help but be really impressed! CVS should be paying you to post!

  3. Nice one! People often underestimate coupons and see them as ‘old fashioned’ but I’m the one who’s going to be winning in the end.

  4. I’m a huge fan of the Currants & Acai soy candle – I’ve really been loading up on them!

  5. I always avoid CVS because it is more expensive than Rite-Aid and other pharmacies. However, I think I’ll be switching shortly.
