CVS GC Challenge (Round 2) Trip#5 08/28/12

It’s great to get a 3 day weekend every once in while. I hope everyone is enjoying the end of summer!

I have a few trips to different stores I made that I have been wanting to post about, but it just seems like it has been so busy. So hopefully I can get caught up now. Here’s my first one. Rite Aid & Walgreens to follow later.

Trip #5 of my current CVS gift card challenge.

The balance from my last trip is:
  • $0.89 Gift Card
  • $23.00 ECB
  • $23.89Total

Purchased:
  • 3 – Advil 50 ct $4.49 ea
Coupons Used:
  • 3 – $1.00/1 Advil 20 ct or larger
  • 1 – $8.00 ECB
  • 1 – $2.00 ECB
Total OOP: $1.36 (0.47 + $0.89 tax) Used $0.89 GC ~ Received 1 – $4.00 ECB’s

*Retail Value before sale prices, coupons and w/o tax $28.87

Remaining balance:
  • $0.00 Gift Card
  • $17.00 ECB
  • $17.00Total
Actual Cash Spent:
  • $0.47 This Trip
  • $0.47 Total Cash

My gift card is completely gone now and I paid $0.47 cash out-of-pocket but I do have the $10.00 rebate I can receive for the Advil. Once I receive that I will purchase another gift card, though I do not think it will come before this challenge is over.

I’m not sure if I should consider this challenge over since I am out of gift card money, but I think since I’m still using ECB’s from when the challenge started I will continue and see how long I can make them last.
