UPDATE: My Fab deal on Garnier Facial Care at CVS

22 Nov

UPDATE:  Krazy Coupon Lady is reporting that the coupon machine at CVS is now printing a $5/15 Garnier Facial Care coupon that you can stack with the $5/20 Facial Care Purchase coupons!!!!!

When I was shopping earier today at CVS, the coupon machine printed out a $5 off any $20 Facial Skincare Purchase.  I was super excited to check this one out, especially since I saw in the ad that CVS Facial Care was B1G1 50% off.

I went in and instead saw a handful of Garnier facial products on sale for $5, and if you spent $15 in Garnier you would receive a $5 ECB.  *Wheels started turning*

Here’s what I ended up doing!  I needed 2 9v batteries too so these were in the transaction as well.

Transaction #1:

Garnier Make Up Removing cloths – on sale $5 (regular $5.99)

Garnier Moisture Rescue Lightweight UV-Lotion – on sale $5 (regular $8.49)

Garnier Moisture Rescue Fresh Cleansing Foam – on sale $5 (regular $8.49)

Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream – on sale $5 (regular $8.49)

2, Duracell Coppertop 9V Battery – on sale $2.99

Use $1 off any one Garnier Moisturizer from 11/6 Redplum Insert

Use $5 off any $20 Facial Skincare purchase from Coupon Machine

Use 2, $1 off 1 Duracell Coppertop battery from 10/30 P&G insert

I then redeemed $10 in ECB’s from prior purchases

OOP: $9.24, receive $5 ECB!  It’s like getting everything here for only $4.24!

I did find 2 more $1 off Garnier coupons at home, so I will be taking the receipt in to be adjusted tomorrow, which would make the OOP then only $7.24, or only $2.24 after ECB’s!

Mini Walgreens, CVS Trip 11/20

20 Nov

I had a Register Reward that was going to expire so I needed to get into Walgreens today and snag this deal (especially with a teething baby):

Transaction #1:

Advil Infant Drops .5 oz – $4.99   Buy 2 Receive $3 RR

Use 2, $2 off 1 MFR coupons (I got these from our pediatrician but you can print some here

Use $2, $2 off 1 from Walgreens Infant Care Book

Also use $1 RR from prior purchase

Now I need my coupon to item ratio balanced.  I have 5 coupons (2 MFR, 2 Store and 1 RR) and only 2 items, so I needed to add in 3 items – I selected caramels by the cash register for .39/each.

Total: $11.15 – $9 in coupons = $2 OOP

CVS was running their Buy 3 American Greetings Cards, get $3 in ECB’s again so I decided to stock up on some more birthday cards!  But first they had Excedrin 8 ct for .99 and then earn $1, so I did it like this:

Transaction #1:

Excedrin Extra Strength 8 ct. .99       OOP: $0.99, earn $.99 ECB

Transaction #2:

3 American Greetings Cards: $0.99 each 

Total: $2.97, use $0.99 ECB from Trans #1         OOP: $1.98, earn $3 ECB

Not bad!  I also purchased a Green Bag Tag last week so I got credit today.  Every 4th scan (1 per day) earns you $1 ECB!
