CVS Biggest Holiday Sale!

CVS Posts Rise In Profits

Today (December 21, 2008) and tomorrow will be a great day for saving money at CVS but you need to act quickly.

I’m having to start all over again after suffering that horrible condition of Ilostus-ecbus. This is a tragic affliction which generally happens when one puts their ecbs in a place one generally feels is safe, only to discover the ECBs have somehow disappeared. So I actually lost almost $50 in ecbs!!! You think having your computer crash is the end of the world.

In an effort to begin my ECBs anew I was thrilled to discover this big holiday sale. In order to do this deal with the least amount of money I broke it up into smaller deals.

The first purchase was five Listerine Antiseptic Cool Mint (500 ml) Be sure you buy this one because none of the others will work. Normally these are $4.29 but they are on sale saving you an initial $1.30 per item. You can purchase up to five of these and receive a $2.99 ECBs for each purchase. In this purchase I threw in two Revlon Classic Nail Polish which were on sale buy one get one free. The nail polish wound up being $4.99 for two, but I still had two coupons for $2 a piece which brought this part of the purchase down to 99 cents. I’m a firm believer in shopping all year for Christmas and these will go towards NEXT year’s gifts. I paid $15.94 out of pocket but received an ECBs for that amount.

Next purchase was two L’Oreal HIP Metallic eye shadow. My nieces will love this for their birthdays next year. These were $6.99 each and you could buy up to two per person to get back the full price in ECBs. I added to that order Excedrin Extra Strength, Express Gels (20 gelcaps). They were on sale for $3.99 and you will receive an ECB for that amount. I was able to use a $1.50 coupon for ANY PAIN RELIEVER generated by my previous purchase as well as the $14.95 ECB. Out of pocket that order was $1.63 after taxes.

I used the $3.99 coupon generated by the previous order to help pay for the next order. I bought one Sally Henson Lacquer Nail Dazzle which goes for $5.99. I also bought five Hershey bars. I also used a coupon for $1 off the purchase of two Hershey’s Dark Chocolate bars. I also used a coupon generated for buy three Hershey bars and get one free. I paid $4.81 out of pocket and received a $5.99 ECB
This week you can buy three Promax Bars (2.64 oz) for $5 and then receive a $5 ECB. This was part of my next order. I also bought a Hall Naturals Honey Lemon cough drop which were $2.59 and used a 50 cents off coupon to receive the $2.59 ecb. I also bought SlimQuick Energy for $4.99 with a $4.99 ECB. The last item in this purchase was Zipfizz Healthy Energy Mix. The cost was $5.99 with a $5.99 ECB
I’ll admit it. I’m a real soda fiend. Hubby always teases me about it. If you bought $15 of any coke products you get back $5 in ECBS. I will tell you that this is the lowest price this week for soda in my area. I know because I just went to Kroger and their “sale was two 12 packs for $8. CVS had twelve packs on sale for 3/$11 I bought three twelve packs and four 2 ltr Cokes. I used one of my ECBs and brought the price down to $11 and then got back $5 in ECBs.

One more purchase and that was the Iceland healthy Joint (60 ct) This item was a bit pricey at $29.99 but you did get the full-price rewarded back as an ECB. So I bought it. With all these ECBs in my pocket I feel like it’s finally game on time again. There were other things I wanted to buy but the ladies at the CVS in Dallas told me that there were people at the door at 7 a.m. this morning and bought up a lot of stuff.
