How I Save Money At CVS: 30 Dec 2008
Today I paid $0.00 for $17.98 worth of items. I needed to get some contact lens solution because I got colored lenses (for cosmetic purposes….since I have great vision after I got LASIK ) and realized that CVS has Complete solution FREE after ECB for the month of December.
Item: 2 boxes of Complete lens solution
Price: $8.99 each
CVS Extra Care Bucks earned: $17.98
Total coupons used: $17.96 ECB
The cashier was nice and waived the $0.02 difference when she noticed that I pulled out my credit card. She asked if I had two pennies and I said that I did not since I don’t carry cash. She said “don’t worry about it then” and zeroed out my balance.
The only thing I am a bit concerned about is that the $17.98 ECB printed as ONE coupon so when I use it I have to get $17.98 worth of stuff in one transaction.
The deals for next week look okay and I have already decided what I will spend the money on and I think that if they have all the items I want in stock then I can use that one coupon without any problems.
Amount Due today (covered by cashier): $0.02
Total out of pocket today: $0.00
Total CVS Extra Care Bucks earned today: $
Total CVS Extra Care Bucks earned to date: $521.59
CVS Extra Care Bucks Used to date: $494.02
