A few weeks ago I signed up to receive two coupons for free Excedrin products. A few days later, the coupon reset and I signed up again. I ended up receiving four coupons for free Excedrin. This just happened to coincide with CVS' ad last week to spend $20 in Excedrin products and receive a $10 ECB. (Read more about CVS'ing and ECB's HERE). I used my 4 coupons, paid nothing out of pocket and received a $10 ECB. So I basically got paid $10 to get 4 Excedrin products. Talk about a steal!
This week, I decided to carry over my $10 ECB toward some drinks and granola bars that were on sale. Here's how it went down...
Purchased (3) Nature Valley granola bars @ 3/$10
- (3) $.50/1 coupons
- $.50 ECB from before
-$2 ECB from 2 weeks ago
Paid $6 oop, got $4 ECB back
Purchased (3) Starbucks Frappucino 4-packs
Purchased (2) Izze sparkling fruit drink 4-packs
-(3) $1/1 Frappucino coupons
-(2) $1/1 Izze coupon
-$10 ECB from last week
-$4 ECB from previous transaction
Paid $3.15 oop, got $10 ECB back
SO, overall I got $39.42 worth of stuff for $9.15 (saved 77%), and I still have $10 ECB left... which means I am walking away with $.85 profit. HELLO! How could you not love CVS after something like that?!
