CVS School Supply-a-palooza

Remember way back when… you know the days of the Woo Hoo Box? Well I’m going to try and get back to giving you some of that “lovin” feeling back. I know most of us are in that mad dash to get the 200,125 things the kiddos need for school. From socks to pencils, book covers to lunch boxes. With four kids I very nearly have to set up a savings account JUST for back to school. This year though my FAVORITE place for that “Woo Hoo” moment, CVS, is pulling out the big savings guns… BIG.. like FREE big!

First, if you don’t have one already, get your tail to CVS or CVS.com and get ya a CVS Extra Care card. Use it EVERY TIME you go to CVS. See not only will you need it to get many of the sale prices and Extra Care Bucks (same as cash, that can be used at any CVS store on everything but milk, gift cards, tobacco and prescriptions) BUT in August you’ll get a FREE item coupon printed out at the bottom of your receipt the first time you use the card. Now I’m not sure what that item will be, but being cheap (in a good way) like I am, FREE is ALWAYS good! You’ll also earn Extra Care Bucks quarterly. What they do is add up what you spend (and that is BEFORE coupons by the way, BONUS) and give you 2% of that amount in Extra Care Bucks. (in her best infomercial voice) But WAIT it doesn’t end there! Enter your email at CVS. com along with your card number and you’ll get lots of coupons. This past week I got a $5 off $25. And here is how I used it this week…

Total of $15.90, Then I bought Soft Soap NutriSerums for $4.99 (used a $2 off coupon AND got $4 in ECB for this one) and a BIG value pack of Bounty Basics Paper towels at $5.99 (for which I have a $1 coupon).

So the total was $26.88
less the $5 off $25 CVS coupon (USE THIS FIRST or it doesn’t work) $21.88
less the manufacture coupons on the paper towels and soap $18.88
I paid out of my own pocket $18.88
THEN I got $19.90 BACK in Extra Care bucks, that I can spend on all sorts of goodies at CVS.

SOOO what it breaks down to is CVS paid me $1.02 to take all that stuff off their hands. I HEART CVS!

Do you want to get these kind of deals too? Well stay tuned I’ll be posting them as often as I can. Can’t wait? Go visit the wonderful Mindi at
Moms Need To Know. She gives me my best 411. This deal was ALL HER! I was lazy this week. FYI, she does most of the east coast grocery stores too! As well as Rite Aid and Walgreens. And BEST of all.. she does it for FREE!
