This was my first time doing anything major at CVS. I’ve done a few small deals, but never gotten something as good as this. I’m a 21 year old college students who coupons for my small family of three (my single mother, myself and my little sister). Before couponing, my family would never have been able to afford to buy Tide or Pantene. Those are luxurious things for my family!

I bought 4 Tides, 4 Glade air fresheners, 3 Pantene shampoos, 3 Pantene conditioners, 3 Dawn dish washing liquids, and 2 Oral-B power toothbrushes.

The CVS in my town is extremely small so I broke this up into two different transactions on two different days to make sure other people were getting the deals as well.

My first transaction was:
2 – Tide (use 1- $2 coupon and 1- $0.50 coupon)
4 – Pantene Shampoo and Conditioner(use 2 $3/2 coupons)
3 – Dawn dish washing liquid (1 – $0.50 coupon and 1 – $0.25 coupon)
2 – Glade air fresheners (used 1 – $2/2 CVS coupon)

Total before coupons: $30.77
I used $10.25 worth of coupons plus $8.86 ECBs from last week
Total OOP: $10.68
Earn $10 CVS gift card

Second transaction:
2 – Tide (used 2 – $0.50 coupons)
2 – Pantene (used $3/2 coupon)
2 – Oral-B Power Tooth Brush (used 2 $3.00 coupons)
2 – Glade air fresheners (used $2/2 CVS coupon)

Total before coupons: $30.81
Used $13 worth of coupons and $10 gift card from first transaction
Total OOP: $8.83
Earn $10 CVS gift card

Total spent $0.68 after gift cards for 19 items or $0.04 an item. Not too shabby for Tide laundry detergent, eh?

(If you want to get technical with the 0.07% tax in Florida, I spent $3.83.)
