CVS Black Friday Deals
Yes, I couldn't resist. I went to CVS after Tanks giving dinner. I felt bad for the cashier but she said her Mom had to work too and they had Thanksgiving yesterday. I was not alone there for too long. A few wives dragged their hubbies to get Black Friday deals early too.
I started with no ECBs to rollover. I also used the $4 off $20 found in the Christmas book. It's good through 11/28, limit 1 per household. Thanks to Southern Savers for the photo.
Here is the summary for the transactions:
Total without any ECBs or coupons: $92.24
Total out-of-pocket: $23.65 + tax
Total ECBs left over: $17.96
Total after these ECBs: $6
That's a savings of 93% after all is said and done.
The first 3 transactions are all FREE items without any coupons. With coupons, it would be a $11.75 moneymaker! Submit the Renpure Try-Me-Free Rebate and that's another $4.99 overage!
5 Reese's candy, $0.79 x 5
5 Mars candy King size, $1.59 x 5
Total out-of-pocket (OOP): $11.90

-$23.94 ECBs from 3rd transaction*
This could have been lower OOP if I gave my other ECBs instead.
ECBs Received: $26.95 (plus $7.98 I have left over)
You know... I don't think I paid for that detergent! I looked in my receipts & it's not on there. It's $1.99 get $1 ECBs. I'll have to go back tomorrow & pay for it!
FOURTH & 5th TRANSACTION*
Chocolate Fountain $18.88
Cold Eeze $6.59
-$25 ECBs from 3rd transaction
Total OOP: $0.47
ECBs Received: $10 ($plus 7.96 ECBs left over)
I had to go back into the store to get the Cold Eeze for DH. The chocolate fountain is for Ladies Gift Exchange. It's a smaller version and perfect for family use! It's red and pretty cute. They also had lots of other gift-type appliances that were $18.88 with $10 ECBs after purchase.
