CVS 2/14/10

We have been very busy the last few weeks and as a result have not stepped foot in a CVS in a while. Lucky for us CVS had some pretty good deals this week so we could use our bucks before they expired. Heres what we did:

Aussie Conditioner $2.99 get $2
Used a $1 off 1 coupon

Colgate Total $2.99 get $2
Used a $0.50 off 1 coupon

Gillette Disposable razors $5.79 get $2
Used a $2 off coupon

Crest Pro Health Enamel Shield $3.50 get $3.50
Used a $0.75 off 1 coupon

Total before tax was $15.27. We combined $8.50 in ECB's with this deal to make it $6.77. After coupons and tax our grand total was $2.67. On the end of the receipt was a lovely gift of $9.50 in ECB's.

Pretty good come back after being away for a few weeks.

Staples Rebates

If you're using up printing paper, start checking out the Staples weekly ads - they frequently have a ream of paper (500 sheets) for $1 after rebate! Staples almost always has free after rebate items in their ad. If you keep an eye on it you can score some cool deals. I don't go there regularly, but on a rare occasion I'll swing by and take them up on a deal or two. Andy had to get some office supplies, so I picked up a few things tonight.

Here's what I did this week at Staples:
  • Scotch Pop-Up Desk Grip Tape Dispenser - FREE after rebate
  • Pentel HyperG Retractable Gel Pens - FREE after rebate
  • Hammermill Copy Plus Paper (500 Sheets) $1 after rebate
