Lately I have neglected CVS-ing.... to busy, stocked well enough....blah, blah, blah. As it happens, CVS has a deal this week, buy Stride Gum at .99, get .99 ECB back. I know my inattention to detail is helping to contribute to my bottom line defiict, so I need to get back into it pronto! Princess Penelope is a gum addict so I'm always eager to pick it up for her cheap.... otherwise, Momma's not buyin'!
Anyway, I happened to have a BOGO coupon for the Stride Gum too, so that was going to reduce it down to 2 packs for .99 plus getting the ECB back... so my net cost would just be tax. Anyway, I rummage through my coupon holder and realize I have a CVS coupon for $3 off of any pain reliever purchase. Hmmmm, this deal is getting better and better. So I go back to the pain reliever aisle and snag a 24 ct. bottle of CVS Ibuprofen for $2.87, fully expecting them to adjust the coupon down. When I go to check out, they give me the full $3 credit for the coupon, and the normal price of $1.49 for the gum! Ethically speaking, I will say that I did try to point out that I was only paying .99 for gum and $2.87 for the ibuprofen, but the cashier who is a manager, too, just shrugged her shoulders and said "It took it." Well Okay, then..... So after all that, this is how I did:
