My CVS Challenge Trip #5
So this week I did a couple of small trips.
One because my dog was running out of food and I really need to pick some up and I just wasn’t willing to pay full price! Not because he’s not worth it, but just because I can’t find myself to spend the extra cash when you can pick up such great deals!
The second trip was just because I noticed I had received a birthday gift email from CVS and I didn’t notice until a day before it was going to expire.
It worked out great! My CVS didn’t have all 5 bags of dog food that I needed to get over the $20.00 and receive $5.00 ECB’s, so I only picked up 4 bags (+ rain check for extra bag). When I received the $3.00 ECB’s I went back to CVS and picked up the Beneful snacks and only paid $.20 total. That ended up being cheaper than if I would have bought the 5th bag because unless I would have picked something else up I would’ve lost the full value of that buck.
Here’s a break down of what I started with this week and my purchase:
- $11.00 ECB’s ($8.00 from previous week + $3.00 received from birthday email)
- $4.26 CC
- Total $15.26
Bought 4 Beneful dog food $4.49 (used rain check previously received)
- Used 4 $2.50 Beneful dog food
- Used 1 $8.00 ECB
Total OOP w/tax – $1.35 (Used CC)
Bought 1 Beneful Baked Delights $3.19
- Used 1 $3.00 ECB
Total OOP w/tax – $.20 (Cash) ~ Received $5.00 ECB’s
My new balances look like this:
- $2.91 CC
- $5.00 ECB’s
- Total $7.91
