If you were a fly on the wall yesterday in my car, you would have heard this conversation:
Me to my son: I just GOT PAID to buy this entire bag of stuff. Doesn’t that make me really cool??
My son: Um…
Me: Don’t you wish you could get paid to buy stuff?
My son: I’m 8, Mother.
Just a little glimpse into my life. I was kind of hoping to earn Cool Mom Points on this one, but looks like this kind of awesome is lost on an 8 year old. 🙂 I hope you have better luck!
Anyway, it was a GOOD day at CVS yesterday. I really and truly got PAID to buy all of the items pictured above. Cue the music: Oh what a feeling!
Buy (1) Sundown Naturals Adult Gummies, $7 – Get $4 ECB’s
Buy (2) Crest Sensi-Relief, $4.99 ea. – Get $8 ECB’s
Buy (1) Finish Jet Dry Rinse Agent, $6.29
Bu (1) Finish Quantum 10 ct, $2.65 (B1G1 50% off)
Use $5 off $25 coupon from CVS Email
Use $2/1 Sundown Naturals coupon from RP 3/16
Use (2) $1/1 Crest Sensi-Relief Coupons from In-store Blinkie (also $1/1 coupons here)
Use $0.75/1 Finish Jet-Dry Rinse Aid Or Turbo Dry
Use $0.75/1 Finish Automatic Dishwasher Detergent
Use $10 in ECB’s from last week
$5.58 after coupons and ECB’s!
Buy (2) Stride Gum, $2 – Get $1 ECB’s*
Buy (3) Saltine Crackers, $3 – Not a great deal, but I had a sick kiddo at home. 🙁
Use $4 in ECB’s from previous transaction
$1 after ECB’s!
*Note: There is a $1/2 coupon in some newspapers for the Stride Gum. Unfortunately, I did not receive it mine.
So, in case you are wondering how I got paid for these transactions, there was a FREE after rebate form in yesterday’s paper (SS 3/16) for Finish Detergent (up to $4.99) AND Finish Jet Dry (up to $4.50). I decided to use it in this transaction even though I paid more than $4.99 for the Detergent because it allowed me to use my $5 off $25 purchase coupon without really paying $25. I love it when that happens!
So, I will receive $4.50 for the Jet Dry and $2.65 for the Detergent for a total of $7.15 via rebate. That makes this a profit or $0.57! I know…I know…I should take away the cost of the stamp, but let me just soak this up for a bit, ok? 🙂
On a side note: If you find the Finish Detergent and Jet Dry priced right elsewhere, you can turn this into a moneymaker just by using the $0.75/1 coupons listed above for each. Most rebates give you back the full purchase price before coupons, so you’ll pay $1.50 less than the amount you receive from the rebate – Cha-Ching!
OH! And I also have $10 in ECB’s for next week.
How about you did you score any great deals this week? And, as always, I want to help you score great deals too, so feel FREE to ask any questions, ok? It’s why I’m here!
