Simple CVS Trip for only $4.19

You can get some great deals by shopping at the drugstores.  Here in Southern Nevada we have CVS and Walgreens.  These stores have their own rewards programs.  CVS has extra care bucks (ECB's) and Walgreens has register rewards (RR's).  In an advanced class I teach you how to shop these stores successfully without too much stress.  Here is my first rule:

When you're new keep it SIMPLE!!

Here is a simple trip you could do this week at CVS:

Transaction #1: Buy 1 Colgate Total on sale for $2.77
use $1/1 SS 6/6
Pay $1.77 out of pocket get $2 ECBs (limit 1)
this is like you just got Colgate Total for FREE!

Transaction #2:  Don't get back in line just inform the cashier that you will be splitting your purchase into 2 transactions : )

Buy 1 Post Cereal on sale for $1.88
use $2/1 printable coupon here

Buy as many Glade Air Freshener Sprays as you'd like on sale for $1
use $1/1 from SS 6/6 or $1/1 Group A

Buy 2 Nestle Pure Life Water 24 pk on sale for 2.77
use $1/2 Group A

Use your 2 ECB's from transaction #1
Pay $2.42 TOTAL (pre-tax)!!! 

Total out of pocket for all of this is $4.19!
