CVS: My trip for the week of June 27th!

I was really happy with my trip this week. The FREE pads could not have come at a better time... not that I am having a baby in a few weeks or anything!
My Total out of pocket was: $18.48
Total Saved: $84.77
Left with $10 in ECB's for next week!
Getting back with rebates: A gift pack from Stayfree and $10 from Aveeno!

So basically they paid me $1.50 to walk out of the store with all this. Hehehe, if you want to look at it that way! That is what my husband calls my "coupon math"!
Transaction #1
2 Aveeno Styling Products $6.49 each
2 Aveeno Shampoo/Conditioner $6.49 each
Used:
4 $1.50 Aveeno Printable coupons
1 $10 ECB from last weeks diaper deal
Total: $10.58
Got back $10 ECB
Submit for $10 Rebate ( HUGE money maker!)

Transaction #2 (** stay tuned for explanation of 2 year olds belly in the background :))
2 Stride Gum B1G1 Free $.88
2 Playtex Sport Tampons $5.29 each
1 Hydro Razor $9.99
Used:
1 B1G1
Free Stride Shift, SS 5/16
2 $1/1 Playtex Sport from 6/27 SS
1 $4/1 Hydro (06/13 SS)
1 $10 ECB from previous purchase
Total: $5.79
Got back: $10 ECB for Playtex, Hydro deal, Buy $20 get $10 back
Transaction #3
2 Mentos gum on clearance for $.99 each (for the kids $1 movie!)
2 M&M Pretzel B1G1 Free at $.88 each ( this was all they had, bummer!)
10 Stayfree Pads B1G1 Free at $3.79 each
Used:
1 M&M B1G1 Free coupon from todays RP
5 Stayfree B1G1 Free coupons from todays RP
Total: $2.11 (for the gum!)

** Had I not gotten the gum my total would have been $0. This usually FREAKS the cashiers out so I always like to add something to make my total NOT $0!

I went to the CVS at the following location:
1325 FM 1960 WEST
HOUSTON, TX 77090
Phone: 281-444-4582

I tried to purchase 6 Stayfree items, 2 Oust items, & 2 Windex Multi-Surface items. However the woman at the counter would not let me combine the Buy 1 get 1 free Stayfree coupons with the $2 off Stayfree coupons. Then she talked to what I assume was her manager. The clerk came back and again would not let me use the coupons. I left everything on the counter and went to the CVS at the following location:

Store # 5838 3140 FM 1960 WEST
HOUSTON, TX 77068
Phone: 281-880-1092

I purchased everything I mentioned above with no problems. I used all of my coupons and paid $0 for my entire purchase.

I am glad that you found one that will do it for you!

You will notice I didn't try and use the $2 ones in my purchase, I knew that it would cause a problem and already was getting them free so i didn't want to press my luck :)

I have better luck with those type of deals at the grocery store and not CVS.

Good for you to not get too frustrated!

I just want to tell you I think Rush is the cutest kid ever! Good luck with your up coming delivery.

Any problems with the limit 6 of Stay Free in the ad? Does your card keep track of that? Or can you go in a couple of times to get the amount you want? I wasn't sure if it was per visit or per card. Thanks!

katie, do you know I didn't even notice the limit until you said something! So I guess they don't keep track it is up to the cashier to limit it. I just made sure they had a bunch and they did. Thanks for pointing that out.

Man, we didn't get the stay free BOGO coupon :-(

Good shopping trip though! Way to go!

I must tell you about my incredibly disappointing trip to CVS this evening. I went in with the intention of purchasing 6 bags of StayFree pads (3 BOGO manufacturer coupons) and six bags of Pretzel M&Ms (3 BOGO manufacturer coupons) and the cashier and shift manager would not allow me to use the manufacturer coupon on top of the store coupon. I was incredibly irritated because I'm expecting and was stoked to get the deal on the Stayfree. Also because I'm pregnant I was even twice as stoked about the free M&Ms. I even pulled out the coupon policy and they still wouldn't budge. I couldn't believe it. Please make the manager at: 6210 Main Street, Downers Grove, IL‎ - (630) 968-3276‎ aware of the MAJOR ERROR on his part!!

Ok, I'm done with the pregnant rant. Will try my luck at a different location tomorrow.
