Wow, I can't believe how much "money" you can make at CVS this month! I just increased my ECB totals to about $31 from $9 and only paying about $4 in OOP. That is a net profit of $18 ECB's.
Here was my transaction today.
(2) Throat Coolers - $4.99 each (get $4.99 ecb's back) - had B1G1 free q.
(2) Nasal Spray's - $7.99 each (get $7.99 ecb's back) - had 2 - $2 off q's
---also had a $5 off $25 order coupon (q) that was due to expire tomorrow--
Coupons used: $13.99
ECB's used: $9.00
Total savings: $22.99 (87%)
Total OOP: $3.81
ECB's gained: $9.98 (throat coolers); $15.98 (Nasal Spray); $4.99 (throat cooler)
***You maybe wondering why I have an extra $4.99 ECB from the throat cooler...well due to the picked over nature of these products...I found one store that had 3 out of the 4 items in stock...and I needed both coolers to use the B1G1 Free q...so the manager found another CVS that had a cooler in stock...thankfully it was within two miles of the store I was at...
I drove over to the other CVS and got the cooler...then came back to the original store and returned the cooler there...and then used it in my order of 4 items...to get the total over $25 (to use the $5 off q!) IS anyone else confused yet! lol.
Well the cool thing was that I still got the ECB from the original purchase and then it gave me another ECB for buying it again. I thought the limit was 2 per card. So basically I got (3)$4.99 ecb's and only purchased (2)$4.99 products. Did I find a loophole or is the limit actually 5 like the bloggers have been saying?
Does anyone know if that original $4.99 ECB is still good even though I returned the orginal product? I assume it is, but am not sure.
I can't wait to use some of the ECB's on more toothpaste and shampoo next week! Remember the Food Pantry is still in need of toothpaste if you don't need any!
