This week I didn’t need anything at CVS but my friend Jen from Savor The Thyme picked up a few things. She had some ExtraBucks Rewards from last week and she need two items that we not on sale so she decided this was a good time to get them. Her husband has certain brands he likes to use which she ran out of and needed this week so it’s a good example of when to use your ExtraBucks Rewards – on items you need NOW but are not on sale and you many not have coupons for.
She was looking to purchase Arm & Hammer Toothpaste and she could only find a coupon for $1 off THREE which she didn’t want to use because purchasing THREE at full price with only saving $1.00 isn’t always the best option. She also needed some Edge gel that was on sale last which but we forgot to get a rain check for (they were out of it). But she did have a $1 coupon and figured it was worth at least saving the $1 on just ONE.
When she got to the store she scanned her card and got a $1.00 off Toothpaste coupon which she was very excited about as the toothpaste she was going to buy was not on sale and she didn’t have a coupon for it! Then she went to get the shaving cream and it was marked down. So she saved even more than she planned on saving.
(1) Arm & Hammer toothpaste, $5.49
Used (1) $1.00 Toothpaste coupon from the coupon machine
(1) Edge Gel, On sale $2.29
Used (1) $1.00 Edge Coupon
Used ECB’s from last week – $5.78
And she still has a few ExtraBucks Rew ards left over from last week.
Now head on over the Savor The Thyme to see what recipe Jen put together using her $8.68 in savings to make a meal.
Love the deals you can get at CVS
