CVS is my friend
Today after church, and while a roast was perfecting in my oven , husband took me to CVS. Today was a blow out day of freebies. I had a $35.00 dollar Extra Care Buck in my billfold that was a left over from the Thanksgiving sale. I messed up that day and did not really want to be stuck with $35.00 on one ECB, but CVS came through for me today and I was able to roll it over and end up with multiple smaller bucks. The basics of this deal are as follows:
I started with the $35.00 in Extra Care Bucks, plus a $25.00 gift card from a new prescription (free money)
I also had coupons on several items
I spent the $35.00 ECB, plus $10.76 on the gift card for a total spent of $45.76 (NOTHING out of pocket)
I left with $49.47 in brand spankin' new Extra Care Bucks (in smaller more manageable amounts)
I came home with more Extra Care Bucks than what I spent in ECBs and on my gift card. *** I MADE MONEY!!
I did 3 transactions and ended up with the following:
5 Arm & Hammer Essentials Cleaning Kits
5 Right Guard Professional Strength
1 Halls Naturals
2 Sally Hansen Nail Polish
2 Loreal Eye Shadow
3 Thermocare Heat Wraps
1 Package Zip Fizz Energy Mix
1 Package Benefiber Drink Mix
1 Alteril Sleep Aid
1 Sleepinal Sleep Aid
29 items that would have cost over $167.00 but that were actually given to me for nothing!
I left the store halfway looking over my shoulder to see if I would be arrested. It amazes me that I can get free stuff like this!
Now for the remaining $49.00 Extra Care Bucks, I will probably blow through some of them without having to worry about rolling them over into new ones. I figure this is great timing to allow me to buy a few stocking stuffers and last minute Christmas essentials.
