How I Save Money At CVS: 13 June 2010
Today I paid $0.00 out of pocket for $16.98 worth of items. I actually got more body wash and toothpaste which I am giving to imy best friend since I have enough of those items in my bathroom right now.
I ended up getting a bonus set of extra bucks due to a glitch in the system but I am not complaining. The ad in the paper said there was a limit of one on the body wash, meaning you could only get one set of extra bucks…but I had a buy one get one free (BOGO) coupon for the body wash so I got two…and the ECBs printed as double the amount.
