CVS: My first ECB purchase


Last night I went to CVS and used my first ECBs that I earned recently. I looked around for some of the things that I’d read about on others’ blogs, but I didn’t have any luck. I did find some Essence of Beauty lotions in the clearance section for $2.50 each. Those would work on the “Buy 3 Essence of Beauty Cosmetic Accessories or Bath Products and get $5 ECBs” deal. I wonder if there are any cheaper Essence of Beauty products out there. I didn’t look around the health & beauty section very much, just clearance.

What I did buy was the Softsoap Spa for $4.99. I used a $1/1 printable Q (since my paper didn’t have the $1.50/1 Q 😦 ) and my $2.99 in ECBs that I earned previously.

That means I spent $1.00 OOP before taxes and earned $4.99 in ECBs.

Success (however small) is sweet!

    Good for you! It really pays to start small at CVS and be patient; some weeks and months are just leaner than others. And CVS has become more stringent on their release of CVS coupons so it can be challenging to create a mega-deal.

    My personal limit is (2) transactions per trip; I don’t have the time to waste and I shop with my kids. And I also don’t want to be a “problem” customer.

    Keep checking the blogosphere for deals and the upcoming weekly ad; I’m betting you’ll grow those $5 in ECBs by a few more next week…then it’ll start getting fun!
