Doubled my savings

Made another trip to Kmart hoping to score some savings on the Tide Pods but I forgot my coupons for that so I browsed around to see if there were any other deals I could double my coupons and save with, here’s what I found:

Two Maybelline mascaras reg price $5.29 each with a B1G1 50% off for $2.65, used one $2/1 MF doubled $4/1 = $1.29 and one $1/1 MF doubled $2/1 = $.65 cents.

One bag of Purina Cat Chow sale price $4.69, used one $1/1 MF doubled $2/1 = $2.69

One bag of Friskies cat treats sale price $1.34, used one $.50/1 MF doubled $1/1 = $.34 cents

One bag of Tidy Cats Pure Nature cat litter sale price $8.49, used one $2/1 MF doubled $4/1 = $4.49 (the first time I bought this cat litter I paid $10 at Target and that was with the $2/1 coupon!)

Total paid: $10.81

Total savings: $11.60

  1. Michah Gordon no, you just have to check out separate for each reward you are earning, this trip was 2 stores, I got 6 from each store i went to this week.
  2. Tawn Is there a limit on how many register rewards you can get per product? Just curious how you got 12 teas for free because I can't find any language on the website saying if there is a limit or not.

Ice, ice baby (coffee) $5.30 OOP at CVS

ice ice baby

 

Bought 10 Starbucks Iced Coffee, regular price @ $1.99, on sale for $1.50 = $15.00

Minus 10 ($1.00 off one Starbucks Iced Coffee 11oz printable coupon found here http://lp.starbucks.com/coupon-test) = $5.00

Plus $0.30 in taxes = $5.30    :)

I also planned to buy 10 Starbucks refreshers on sale for $1.50 to bring my total to $30.00

And use 10 ($1.00 off one Starbucks refresher found here http://www.starbucksrefreshers.com/) = $5.00

buy $30 worth, receive $10.00 extra bucks

But my CVS was out so I got a rain check.

With that being said………after extra bucks that’s 10 ice coffee and 10 refreshers for free!!!!

 

NOTE: I have family members help with the printable coupons.  I still don’t understand why they don’t coupon with me, though.  :P

Deal Shares – CVS

Jeremy Chanda
Deal Shares – CVS

In case you missed them, these are the items we grabbed this week at CVS that may be of interest. Prices can vary depending on location unless stated otherwise. We try to put the most accurate info to save you the trouble. Happy shopping!

Speed Stick, 1.8 oz $0.74 Clearance
-$1.11 25% CVSQ
-$3.00 off Speedstick from MCM
Subtotal = $0.33 for 6
Comments: 2 Lady’s Speedstick also $0.74 given to sis, clearance vary by store but be sure to check your CVSQs and pair them with your weekly $ off or % off

Wet n Wild, various
$1.00 off MQ
$2.00 off $2.99 MQ
Comments: Last week CVS had B2G1F and this week there’s a 3/$2 as well as tons of clearance. Some had the $2.00 off and asked for advice to pair the deals. We were too busy for last week’s so we did it this week resulting in 4 free items. Using 3x $1.00 off $0.67 nail polish gave overage for the $2.99 eyeshadow (regular price) palette making them all free. If you only have the $2.00 off $2.99, we suggest pairing it with the 25% off or $ off CVSQ. There’s tons of combinations for the lipsticks at blush palettes. Hope that helps!

Loreal Advanced Shampoo/Conditioners, $4.99 each or $4.50 each for 2 or more
-$4.50 25% CVSQ
-$5.00/2 MQ from coupons.com
-$3.00 off $15 CVSQ
Subtotal = $0.50
Comments: This one is tricky… Our manager told us that the sale price was an auto discount rather than a circular sale price so the % off Q accepted (we’re glad it worked) and then we applied the others. We usually consider ECBs free money only in cases like these where you coughed up less and got back extra (otherwise they’re more like cash back because you initially paid cash before rolling them week after week). With the $5 ECB you receive from doing this, it is actually a $4.50MM (not counting tax). We then used them on Pantene and etc.

CVS Heat Patch, $1.57
-$0.23 25% CVSQ
-$1.00 from MCM
Subtotal = $0.34
