CVS and Wal-mart

CVS Trip 7/11/08

I didn't really need anything from CVS today, but while we were out I drove by just to scan my card. The coupon machine gave me a neat coupon for a free hand sanitizer pen and $1 off Gold Emblem pretzels. So I made a quick transaction:

2 Gold Emblem pretzels $0.69 each-- $1.00 off scanner coupon
1 CVS face cloths $2.99-- $2.00 off Beauty Handbook coupon
1 Hand sanitizer pen $1.79-- $1.79 off scanner coupon

Total Retail Value $6.16
ECBs Used $0.99
Out of Pocket $0.43
ECBs Earned $1.00

Wal-mart Trip 7/11/08

I had some high dollar coupons that resulted in overages to be applied to my other groceries. That is my favorite part of couponing at Wal-mart. They NEVER adjust coupons down to the price of the item. Example in the above picture--I purchased 3 KY Jellys at $2.57 each. I had 3- $3 off coupons. So for each one I had the extra $0.43 applied to other items. My subtotal before coupons was $51.11. After coupons was $25.52. Not too bad! I got most things on my list and a few items for Christmas gift baskets.
