Have I mentioned I love ExtraBucks? I swear, my stockpile would be half empty without them.
For those that don’t know, you can actually get $10 in ExtraBucks without buying anything by linking a prescription from CVS to your ExtraCare card. I am not sure if it’s a promotion or for how long it’s going on but that’s a great way to get “free” ExtraBucks.
I had $10 in ExtraBucks from linking an rX to my ExtraCare that expired today. Eek! No way would I let that free money go to waste! But I only spend ExtraBucks to get more! On the way to dinner I stopped at my cvs and bought 4 Puffs tissues, 4 dawn dish soap, and 2 toothbrushes and used those ExtraBucks to make $6 more and left with a profit! Here’s the math:
4 Puffs tissues – $.99/ea
4 Dawn dish soap – $.99/ea
2 Oral-B Sensi Soft toothbrushes – $3.74/ea (on clearance at my store!!)
$10 in EBs
4 $.35/1 Puffs (coupons.com)
3 $.30/1 Dawn (coupons.com)
1 $2.50/2 Oral-B (RP 11/8)
Total value (pre-sale price) – $23.79
Total discounts – $23.14
Total OOP – $.65
Total saved – 97%
Total EB – $6.00 ($3 per toothbrush)
Profit – $5.35
I’d like to note I had another $.30/1 Dawn coupon but the barcode didn’t print properly and the cashier wouldn’t take it. Let this be a lesson to you all – make sure you have clearly printed coupons or else you too will hang your head in shame at having to pay an extra $.30.
However… Cheers to making money at CVS!!
