I used up a lot of my extra bucks on my CVS shopping trip today. Â I don't like to go below $30 which I didn't. Â I needed to get my mom some more Boost and the b1g1 sale and coupons together made for a decent price and by paying with my extra bucks it was all virtually free. Â Then I noticed a special I didn't know about that ends 6/30: Â buy 6 Boost get one free (the coupon prints 48 hours after you reach the total). Â Since I had gotten one last week and I had 5 coupons I went ahead and bought the 5 more to reach the limit and earn the free one.
The store didn't have enough Boost in stock (actually they only had one of the type she wanted) but the cashier rang up five total and wrote me a rain check for 4 Paid that I can turn in for them when the stock is back in (I will probably actually ask for them to order it so I can get it quickly). Â I had to do the same thing with the M&M pretzels because they didn't have stock. Â Once in a while I do this if it is advantageous for coupons or $/$$ coupons. Â I have been in other stores that also will do this when they are out of stock and actually found out about it from a corporate manager of some sort that was in a CVS one day when I was shopping and I asked the manager about something that was out of stock and he suggested doing this.
Well, here is what I got and how I paid:
Saved: Â $130.00 (exactly)
Spent: Â $.66
Extra bucks Used: Â $31.00
Extra bucks received: Â $16.97
Will Receive a coupon for a free Boost up to $9.99 in 48 hours.

You can find all these deals and more on the current CVS deals post page here at Simply CVS and look over the weekly ad. Also, read how I have learned (from others) to "stack" the coupons in the right order to pay less tax here. Â Some states have to pay tax on extra buck usage and some don't so it may or may not affect your CVS shopping. Â And if you don't have any, or many, extra bucks check out this post about how to have the least out of pocket cash when beginning.
