I hit up the deals at CVS and Rite Aid this week and thought I would share with you all what I did. Hopefully this will inspire you to do some stock up couponing of your own! Why pay full price, ever?!

At CVS I took advantage of the buy $15 of participating products, get $5 Extra Care Bucks (ECBs) promotion to get some cleaning/air freshener products I needed. And I also used my $4 off a $20 purchase coupon, as well as some ECBs I had. I also used the high value Covergirl coupon from this weekend’s paper to get free blush and bronzer.

1 Mr. Clean Magic Eraser- Reg. Price $3.69, Sale Price $2.50
2 Febreze Air Effects- Reg Price $3.69, Sale Price $2.99
1 Swiffer Wet Jet Refill- Reg Price $6.79, Sale Price $3.99
1 Febreze Noticeables Refill- Reg Price $5.49, Sale Price $3.99
2 Cover Girl Cheekers (1 Blush & 1 Bronzer)- Reg Price $5.29, Sale Buy 1 get 1 50% off ($2.65)
Total Before Coupons: $21.41

*Note: The blush didn’t automatically ring up the second at 50% off so I had to ask a manager to correct the price. Always double check the price on the screen because sometimes it’s not coded right in the computer system.

Coupons Used:
$4 off $20 CVS purchase
$1/1 Magic Eraser from Right At Home mailing
(2) $1/1 Febreze Air Effects from Right At Home mailing
$1/1 Febreze Noticeables from Right At Home mailing
$8/2 Cover Girl face products from 10/2 Smart Source
$8 in Extra Care Bucks from previous transatcions
Scanned Green Bag Tag (gives you $1 ECB every 4 transactions)

Total After Coupons: $1.45.
I got $5 in Extra Care Bucks back on my receipt, so the transaction was a $3.55 moneymaker!
Total Saved: $33.53 (saved 110%)

At Rite Aid I got some items which will be free or super cheap after Single Check Rebates, as well as cold medicine I needed. I split my purchase into two transactions and rolled my +UP Rewards to spend less out of pocket. Remember, Rite Aid lets you stack a manufacturer coupon with both a Rite Aid store couopon and an Rite Aid video values coupon.

Transaction #1
NoNonsense Panty Hose- Reg Price $3.49, Sale Price $2.99
Profoot Heel Cream- Reg Price $8.29, Sale Price $4.99

$1/1 Profoot product printable (also was a hang tag on product but my printable expired first)
$1/1 NoNonsense video values
$2 +UP Rewards from previous transactions

Total After Coupons: $4.46
I got back $3 in +UP Rewards ($1 from NoNonsense and $2 from Profoot), so more like $1.46
Also, the Profoot has a $3 Single Check Rebate
Total Saved: $13.80 (including the +UPs & rebate) (saved 113%)
