CVS Shopping-Saturday Night Double Dip With 99% Savings

CVS ShoppingOne of my favorite times to do CVS shopping is on Saturday evenings simply because my store starts the new Sunday ad at 4 PM on Saturday afternoons. This means that from 4 to close, I can shop deals from BOTH ads at the same time! Check with your local store to see what time they change over their ads.

I was able to get everything I needed that was on my list except for one item. I asked the Asst. Manager and she said that their store did not carry the Bausch + Lomb .5oz that was in the sale ad for $7.99 with a $5 ECB. Here is why I LOVE my CVS. She offered to let me get the bigger box with 28 individual applications in it for the same price and she even gave me the $5 ECB!

I do plan on finishing up the Caress deal to spend $30 and get a $10 ECB, but I only had 2 coupons with me to use since the coupon is limited to 2 per trip.

Transaction #1

2 Caress Body Wash 2/$6.00
6 Revlon Nail Polish $4.99 ea
Bausch + Lomb Soothe Eye Drops $7.99

Coupons used

$2/2 Body wash or soap CVS coupon (printed at red machine this week)
$3.00 off any Revlon cosmetic CVS coupon (printed at red machine this week)
$1.50 off $5 Eye Care purchase CVS coupon (printed at red machine this week)

(6) $2 off any Revlon Cosmetic SS2 7/28 (exp 8/18)
(1) $4 off Bausch + Lomb Soothe product SS 6/30 (exp 8/31)

Total OOP $4.44 (.93 + $3.51 tax) Earned 23 ECBs ($18 from Revlon,$5 from Bausch + Lomb)

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Transaction #2

2 Gain Detergent 2/$12.00
1 Revlon Lustrous Lipstick $5.99
1 Revlon Foundation $9.49

Coupons used

$3 off any Revlon Lip or Eye Product CVS coupon (printed from red machine last week)
(2) $2 off any Revlon Cosmetic SS2 7/28 (exp 8/18)
(1) $2/2 Gain Detergent or Fabric Enhancer RP 7/14 (exp 8/31)
$18 ECB from first transaction

Total OOP $2.68 ( .48 + $2.20) Earned $10 ECB ($6 from Revlon, $4 from Gain)

After everything was done, I saved 99% and left with $15 ECBs. When I started I was only .15 away from a $50 spending mark for the CVS Beauty Club. After tonight’s trip, I will receive another $10 ECBs from the Beauty Club in a couple of days, making my total $25 ECBs from this one shopping trip!

  1. lorilee blevins says:

    how do you use 6 of the revlon $2.00 off coupons if it says 1 coupon per purchase?

    • The Wizard says:

      Each product is a purchase. Every time a UPC is scanned, it’s a purchase. When they want you to limit the number of coupons used in total, it is designated as “per shopping trip” or “per transaction”. They use “per purchase” so that people don’t use more than one coupon on any one product (unless it’s a stackable store and manufacturer coupon situation).

  2. What is …. printed from red machine? Also do you get to use the coupon from the printed machine and the manufactors coupon together
