CVS: $40 becomes $1

Total Before Savings:  $39.96
Coupons Used:  $6.00
Extra Care Bucks Used:  $15.99
Cash OOP:  $1.00
Extra Care Bucks Earned:  $8.00

When I walked in, I went to get my "Mystery Beauty Coupon" - it was $1 off any Maybelline product.  BUT!  I did get $5 Extra Care Bucks for apparently hitting $50 spent in beauty items.  If you haven't already registered your card to do it, pick up one of the coupons they have around the beauty items.  Pretty much, for every $50 you log buying beauty products, you get $5 ECBs.  I think you can only do this once - as my receipt says "Offer Limit Reached" on that. 

I was going to do the Dove Deal - but my CVS was already sold out of all the shampoo and conditioners (there was a BOGO MFC in the paper recently).  No worries though.

3 Garnier Fructis Products (2 shampoos, 1 style product) - 3/$10 (Used 3 $1/1 MFCs from paper) $7 OOP, Earned $3 ECB

1 Hydro 3 Razor Refill - $8.49 ($2/1 MFC from paper today) $6.49 OOP, Earned $5 ECB

1 Treseme Blonde Shampoo - Reg. $5.49, Clearanced at $1.37 (used $1/1 MFC from paper) .37 cents.  I'm not blonde, but it's going in my donation stockpile.  For .37 cents, why not?

2 CVS brand TheraFlus (Cold season will be fast approaching here - exp. date on these was 2/13) - Reg. $4.99, Clearanced at $1.24 each.

1 Ludens Cough Drops - Reg. 2.37, Clearanced at .59 cents

Only paying $1 for $39.96 worth of stuff equals a savings of 97.5%. 

So in the past three weeks, I've gotten $168.89 worth of stuff for $37.37.  A savings of 77.87%.
