Just a note, when I first started couponing I would roll my EB’s over into multiple transactions during the same trip until I had none left so that I wouldn’t lose them or let them expire. Lately, I have been doing one larger transaction each week and using the EB’s from the previous week in order to spend less oop each week. Do what works for you, your budget and your personality! Happy shopping!

The Grand Total OOP (out-of-pocket) expense was $39.15 for $132.78 retail w/tax AND I still have $3.00 ECB left!  Also, I noticed that although the GM (General Mills) deal is listed in the CVS ad as “1 offer per household”, my receipt is tracking as if you can do this deal twice.

CVS Magic Coupon Machine

Standard

I stopped into my local CVS to get cash from the ATM.  While there, I decided to swipe my ExtraCare card to see what the “Magic Coupon Machine” (the red machine that can also be used as a price checker..usually found at the front of the store) had for me today. I was not disappointed:

  • $3 off ANY CoverGirl Natureluxe Cosmetics
  • $5 off ANY $15 Cosmetics purchase
  • 0.40 off 2 Dove large bars
  • $3 off $15 Caliber Stationery
  • $1 off Neutrogena Norwegian Hand Cream

When you stack the above CRTs with manufacturer’s coupons and/or weekly Extra Bucks offers, you can put together some sweet deals!  More on that, coming soon…
