Welcome to How I Save Money. I am on a quest to see how much stuff I can get from CVS without spending any extra money out of my pocket.
I ended up having to back to CVS to refill a prescription for mother. I had originally filled the prescription at WalMart but CVS was running a promotion where you could get a gift card for transferring from another pharmacy.
I will not add in the prescription costs since I did them on a separate transaction but I did end up buying some toothpaste. I got a $30 gift card for the purchase of the medicine.
I am going to use this card to build up my stash of ECBs and get more and more free or low cost things from CVS.
