$5 CVS Challenge - 1/17

Yes, Cheapo has been sighted at the local CVS two days in a row.
(I know they must think I'm nuts there)

Yesterday, I snagged last week's deals. Today, I scored with this week's sales! And...if they are lucky...I may even go back one more time. *wink*

Pepsi Co. is having a great Extra Care Buck sale ... Buy $20 worth of items, receive $10 ECB in return. When you combine that with the $5/$20 printable and a few other Q's, you're making out like a bandit - and you can do this TWICE!

I did two transactions just to be able to roll some ECB's and get some freebies.

#1 Transaction
  • 3 Boxes of Soy Joy bars: $18.00 (the ad says limit 1, the store says limit 3 - the real limit is 6)
Paid with $18.00 ECB from yesterday's Soy Joy's
Received: $18 ECB back
Total: $0

#2 Transaction

  • 3 12 Pks. Pepsi Co. Pop: $10.00
  • 3 bags Stacy's pita chips: $9.00 - $3.00 in printables here and here
  • Gatorade: $1.25 (finished the deal - rec'd $10 ECB)
  • J & J First Aid Kit: $.99 - $1.00 Sunday Q = FREE
  • 2 L'Oreal Lip gloss 75% off = $4.24 - $2.00 in printables here = $2.12 for TWO
  • 2 Oust air & surface: $7.98 - BOGOF Sunday Q = $3.99 for TWO with $6.00 ECB
Subtotal: $33.46
Coupons: $9.98
CVS Coupon: $5.00
ECB paid:$18.00
Tax: $1.46
Cash Total: $1.94
ECB Received: $16.00

So, in all, today I got $51.46 worth of items for a buck ninety-four.

It's a good day.

I'm new to CVS and have gone 2x's the past 2 weeks and have done fairly well, I'd like to think anyways! LOL Anyways, I was wondering if I've already bought ONE box of the soy joy bars and received the $6 ECB, can I buy ANOTHER box and STILL get another $6 ECB? Thanks!

Great trip! My husband hated the free Soy Joy bars that I bought him last year so much...that he's banned me from ever buying them again :-).

And Tiffany, the limit on the Soy Joy bars is 6, so you could buy up to 6 boxes and get $6 in ECB's each time.

Wow you scored quite the deal! I need to have you shop with me as I'm hopeless and always end up spending way more than I should... :)

WOW!! Great job. I wanted to take advantage of the SoyJoy deal also but my CVS sold out of them. Hopefully next visit.
