How I Save Money At CVS: 7 June 09

Today I paid $0.00 out of pocket for $31.96 worth of items.

  1. First of all, thanks for visiting my blog (PFStock) and leaving a comment. I appreciate it.

    This is a good series of posts that you have. CVS recently acquired Longs Drugs, which is common in California. I’ll have to pay more attention to the deals that they offer at CVS.

  2. Thanks for the deals.

    Though most drugstore deal bloggers only consider $0 when the actually item becomes zero with only ECB from the product and Coupons.

    For example: Glide Floss $5.99 is $0 only when adding the ECB $2 and having a MRF $4. When you start adding previous Gift Cards and Previous ECB from previous transactions, it doesn’t mean too much as gift cards and ECB are real money.
