CVS Shopping Trip 01/12/13

All Detergent CVS

So I wanted to show you the deal I took advantage of at CVS yesterday (01/12).  While the sale has ended, this example will still show you how to save by matching up coupons and sales.  Then you can be on your way to being the next Coupon Queen or King :)
I am on my LAST bottle of laundry detergent, so I was super excited that I had the coupons to match this sale!  As you can see, I purchased (4) bags of the all mighty pacs and (4) bottles of all free n clear.  My children have a little bit of a drier/sensitive skin, especially in the winter months – so that’s why I went with those.  Alright, so the deal was “Spend $30, Get a $10 Cash Card”.  There were other items that could have been part of this deal, but I didn’t need any of them.  Here is how the breakdown goes…

All detergent bottles or pacs are normally $6/each at CVS.  This past week they were 2/$8.

  • (8) All brand detergent items at 2/$8 = $32 total pre-tax
  • Subtract the (4) coupons $2/2 ($8 total discount) = $24 pre-tax
    These coupons were from the 01/06 RP and expire 02/17/13
  • Subtract $1 Extra Care Bucks from Fall Quarterly Spending Bucks = $23 pre-tax
    This brought my total to $24.38 after 6% PA State Tax
  • I received a $10 CVS Cash Card (gift card) for spending $30+ on these products

I was pretty happy since I felt like I have been on hiatus from couponing ~ at least in this capacity.  I use coupons everytime I get groceries or go to the store but I just mean I haven’t done deals like this in a long time.  If I’d had extra care bucks or a $4/$20 coupon, I know my total would have been lower but I am happy with this.  My receipt said I saved over $37 and that does not include receiving the gift card at the end of my transaction.

I hope I explained that simply enough.  If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and I will do my best to help you out anytime! :)
