Taking advantage of the CVS Extra Bucks program combined with salesÂ andÂ manufacturerÂ and CVS coupons make for some great deals. Â I save an average ofÂ $3000 a year on health, beauty, food, gifts and household items shopping at CVS. Â I would never have believed shopping at a drug store would be less expensive than shopping at a big box store or that buying grocery items at CVS would save money in my budget. Â But I have learned it is possible and consistently am able to bring home between $50 and $100 of products each week for tax only (sometimes less).
Well, this was a little slower week for me. Â Since they had some Sobe in stock I went ahead and used a rain check I had to grab 14. Â I probably should have waited to see if I get a $/$$ coupon before the Sobe Printable coupons expire the end of September, but my cart looked so empty I had to fill it with something. Â I saw the Pepsi man there and asked about ordering more Sobe for next week and he told me they were out of it--then he said he was just kidding. Â So IÂ ordered 4 more cases to use up my coupons. Â I actually quit playing the Sobe game a while ago but still have lots of coupons. Â I also did the $30 P&G deal for theÂ free flu shot for my mom with her card. Â Here are aÂ couple other transactions we did this week (my mom and daughter) that are interesting uses of CVS shopping without extra bucks.
2 -- Wheat Thins @ $1 each [used twoÂ printable coupons from their Facebook page]
2 -- Oral B Clearance toothbrushes @ $.82 each [used a $.75/2 P&G insert coupon]
1 -- Headphones @ $6.99 bet $6.99 extra bucks
1 -- Glide floss @ $3.97 get $2.50 extra bucks [used a $.75/1 P&G insert coupon]
14 -- Sobe @ $1.59/2 with a rain check for B1G1 [used 7 B1G1 printable coupons from theÂ game and 1 $2/$10 CVS coupon for snacks or sugar free itemsÂ found in booklet at CVS]
