CVS has some great deals this week! I have had a lot of people ask me how I did so well, so I figured that I'd share on here! If you have specific questions, I'd be glad to answer them! :)

First of all, I started my week with $14.99ECB (Extra Care Bucks) from last week, so that helped me tremendously. However, if you don't have that many to start, you can still do well! My parents have me shopping for them now too, so I bought different things for them based on the ECB that I had left from their last week's trip.

I did 2 transactions for myself:
1st transaction
Revlon lipstick: $6.99 each, get $5.00ECB
**printed $2 Revlon coupon from this site: http://www.facebook.com/revlon?v=app_10531514314
So you pay $4.99, but get $5.00ECB

The Revlon site will only let you print the coupon twice, so do it! (I did)

Bumblebee tuna cans: $0.59
**$1.00/2 cans from last week's paper
Pay: $0.18

Ivory soap (3pk): $0.99
**$0.25/1 pack
Pay: $0.74

Subtotal: 10.90 + tax = 11.99
Paid: $11.99 in ECB from last week, so truly FREE!!! (and I still had $3.99ECB from last week, AND gained another $10ECB from the Revlon products)

2nd transaction
Covergirl eyeliner: $7.00 each, get $2.00ECB
Covergirl face powder: $8.99 (NOT ON SALE, but I needed it!)
**$2.00/2 Covergirl products

Subtotal: 13.99 + tax = 15.11
Paid: $13.99 in ECB (last week, plus 1st transaction); $1.12 out of pocket

Then I got $2ECB for next week!

I really could have done better, but I bought the Covergirl products because I *had to* have them...I usually only buy things that have good ECB rewards. Oh well..I'll have to be more strategic about next week's visit!

I know I said that I'd write about my parents' purchase, but I've got to go to bed! Hope this might have helped some of you!
