CVS Shopping trip – 89% Savings!

CVS-7-7
*3 bottles of Dawn not shown.

The magic coupon printer gave me a bunch of $4/$20, it just kept spitting them out, so I broke my order down into multiple transactions to get the best possible prices.

Pantene is 2/$7 (Buy $30 get $10 back) at CVS and there is a BOGO in today’s P&G. CVS magic coupon printer is printing $4/$20. Buy 8, use 4 coupons, grab a Dawn and use the q from today as well, so you go over $30.

Transaction #1:
Pantene x 8 = $28 – $14 BOGOs from 7/7 P&G Brand Saver (my CVS took off $4.99 per coupon! YMMV) = $14 ($19.96 off if your store takes off the $4.99 each)
Dawn x 3 = $2.91 – 20¢/1 = $2.31

Use the $4/$20 (before other coupons of course) brings the total from $16.31 to $12.31 ($10.35 if your store takes off the $4.99 each), get back $10 ecb = $2.31 for everything (or 35¢ if your store takes off the $4.99 each)! You could stop there, but I didn’t, I needed some training pants for the littles, so I took the $10 ecb fro this transaction and moved onto a second order.

Transaction #2:
Huggies x2 = $19.98 – $5 (Two of the $2.50/1 Printables) – $3/1 Huggies mailed CVS coupon = $11.98
Newspaper x2 = $3

Used the $4/$20 brings the total from $14.98 to $10.98, then used the $10 ecb from my previous transaction and paid 98¢, got back $5 ECB from Huggies.

Transaction #3:
Pampers x2 = $19 – $1.50 off ONE Pampers Easy Ups Trainers – $1.50 off ONE Pampers Baby Dry Diapers = $16
Newspaper x2 = $3

Used the $4/$20 brings the total from $19 to $15, then used the $5 ecb from my previous transaction, plus $2 ecb that printed at the magic coupon machine and paid $8, got back $3 ECB from Pampers.

Transaction #4:
Tampax x1 = $3.99 – $2/1 from 7/7 P&G Brand Saver = $1.99
Always Liners x4 @ $1.67 each = $6.68 – $1/1 x4 from 7/7 P&G Brand Saver = $2.68
Caramel x2 @33¢ each = 66¢

Used the $2/$10 Feminine Products coupon from the magic coupon printer, bringing the total from $5.33 to $3.33. Used the $3 ecb from previous transaction, paid 33¢

Total OOP = $9.66

Total before coupons was $84.95, so this was a 89% savings!
