CVS Trip, 9 Products Retail Priced $54.51, only $2.72 with Coupons & Rebate

 

 

 

I had a nice little trip to CVS today to scout for deals.  I left with 9 products, retail priced $54.51, and got it all for only $2.72!

I ended up at the Sand Springs store first, and they were completely out of the Tena liners.  Since today is the last day for the biggest moneymaker with the $5 off coupon, I asked if they could locate a store in Tulsa that had them in stock.  While we can always get a rain check, I would make a dollar more being able to use the coupon, and though just a dollar, I also wanted to see if they had a CeraVe product I was looking for.  The manager sent me to a CVS all the way on the other side of Tulsa.  When I arrived, there were none on the shelves despite telling me they had 26.  However, I had a very nice young manager that offered to check the back, and said if she could not find any, I could choose any other Tena product to substitute for the same price.  She ended up finding a few (although nowhere near 26.)  Besides finding them in the back, she also gave me a third Tena package for free, saying that “When an item like this is out of stock, CVS associates should offer you a substitute for the same price, and if the coupon differs, still take the coupon value off for it as well.”  She also apologized that I had to drive so far.  I told her that she did not need to do that, but even the thought was appreciated.  She insisted, so I ended up with an extra freebie.

This was really encouraging on the heels of a really bad shopping trip.  A few weeks ago, a brand new sales associate rang up my transaction, a transaction that I do every few weeks when available.  There were issues from the start, and looking back, those clues usually let me know to end the transaction there, and return at a later date with a different employee.  The manager saw she was confused, and took over, but was visibly not happy to start with.  She did not understand that the the new associate had entered a large beauty reward I had earned that was showing on the computer.  So even though she scanned my coupons,  it did not deduct them from my receipt.  The CVS system already has the issue of coupons that have been scanned not being used on the transaction in the end.  You always need to check your receipt before leaving, as more often than not now, there is usually at least one that vanishes.  The only one that it did take was a $6 off $30 purchase, but it only took $0.75 off my purchase for it, as that was all that was left after the beauty reward was entered.   That was the first time I have ever seen a register do that without having to manually override a coupon value.  I won’t go into too many details, but it was so bad, that it was a bit difficult to return again.

With couponing, there will be days where things go wrong, and some days where absolutely nothing seems to go right.  Staying calm can be tricky, especially in this case when a manager is chastising you for canceling the transaction, talking over you whenever you try to speak, and holding their hand up in the “stop” motion if you try to show them the errors on the receipt.  In the end, staying as calm and nice as possible is definitely worth it.  The percentage of bad trips I have compared to the great trips I have, is minimal.  All it takes is one time to lose your temper to be branded forever, as store associates absolutely do talk.  If you are “marked,” even easy transactions can turn into hassles later on, as everything you do will then be scrutinized.  On the rare occasions that I have had scenarios such as this, I simply return the items, retrieve all of my coupons, and come back at a later date.  Make sure if they scanned any Extra Care Bucks or beauty rewards, that they are put back on your card, or that they give you a slip that they create manually.  Sometimes even when a transaction is cancelled, the Extra Care Bucks will show as being used.  If this happens, just make sure to explain the situation to a manager and they will take care of it for you.

Overall, CVS employees are some of the best I have come across.  It is my favorite store to coupon at, and it is also where I find the best deals.  Today I grabbed some really nice products at a price that is difficult to beat.

 

Here is what I purchased and what I used:

 

 ***Remember not to print other coupons from the CVS site besides the CVS store coupons (the Tena coupon is not a CVS coupon, just has logo as advertisement) as they will be deducted from your Swagbucks prints, and you will not receive payment for using them. You receive $0.10 (10 Swagbucks) for each coupon used that was  printed off the  Swagbucks site, and they are the same ones found elsewhere.

I was at the hospital yesterday while my dad underwent a procedure for his heart.  Nothing takes my mind of things like getting FREEBIES, so I decided to write a quick post on how to take advantage of the Ibotta monthly bonus.  Redeem $10 in rebates before April 30th ends, and receive an extra $5 bonus payment as long as your team has met their rebate requirements.  If you are not on a team, or your team isn’t active and doesn’t meet their bonus requirements, you can use my link to be on mine!

I used the best couponing deals available, with as little out of pocket as possible, and used just two stores, Walmart and Walgreens as the deals work best with those. You can end up getting 9 products with a regular retail price of $31.17, TOTALLY FREE, plus MAKE $2.57!

You can mix and match rebates according to what you need or want, I just worked up the best deal scenarios with the rebates that are active, but you can of course use any.

FREE Lysol Power & Free TapTop Cleaner, Mail in Rebate

 

 

 

We didn’t receive the free mail in rebate for Lysol TapTop Cleaner in our regional paper here in Tulsa.  However, if you have friends in other regions who give you their coupons, or you want to purchase one from a coupon clipping service, this is a great freebie!!  You can purchase it through 4/30 to receive rebate, so I suggest you buy it now, even if getting the rebate coupon later.

If you don’t have the paper insert coupon needed, you have time to order from Coupons and Things by DeDe clipping service. It takes 2-3 days max to receive your order from the time it is placed, and costs on average 10% of the coupon’s value. So for a $1 off coupon, you would only pay $0.10. Still a tremendous savings, and a great way to get multiples, or coupons that did not run in your region.

State Fair Corn Dogs $0.35 at Dollar Tree, Printable Coupon

 

 

State Fair Corn Dogs only $0.35 at the Dollar Tree with printable coupon!  Many people do not realize that we can use coupons at the Dollar Tree.  We absolutely can!  However, their policy is far more stringent than most.  You are allowed to use only TWO printable coupons per household per day, and only 4 like insert coupons per day.   You can see their coupon policy in full on their site here.

Unfortunately in the Tulsa area, our Dollar Tree stores do not carry the name brands that other regions do.  And when they do, they are often in smaller sizes that will not meet coupon requirements.  However, there are some, and State Fair Corn Dogs can be found locally located in the freezer section in the 2 count packs.  I grab them whenever the coupon is available.
