How I Save Money At CVS: 31 May 09

Today I paid $0 out of pocket for $14.27 worth of items. I actually sort of spent money because I used a gift card but since that gift card was earned from spending money on other things I do not count it as ‘spending’ since it is not additional money.

I also let Baz use the gift card to get some stuff since I messed up his CVS run last week and I don’t have the receipts but I used up an additional $7.68 for his purchases so the gift card balance below is correct.

Transaction 1

Item: Irish spring body wash

Price: $4.99

CVS Extra Care Bucks earned: $4.00 on 2 (I thought it was on one so I had to get the second one in a separate transaction…..oops)

Transaction 2

Item: ACT mouthwash

Price: $4.29

CVS Extra Care Bucks earned: $1.00

Item: Irish spring body wash
