My CVS loot for this week

** Never played the CVS game?? Wondering how I got all the stuff below for less than $2? Read my Beginners Guide to CVS to find out everything you need to know. It's easy, it's fun, it's ridiculously cheap, and you can do it too!

I didn't get to CVS this week until today, so I had a lot of shopping to do! This was all purchased in 5 transactions. 3 on my husband's card and 2 on mine. You can see my base scenarios here (reworked a bit at the store because they were out of the Powerade).

It was not a good day at CVS at all. The little Olay Ribbons lotions were marked $5.99, but rang up $2.50 on clearance and didn't count for the $10 ECBs because of it. So that completely messed me up. So to get me to my $20, I went back and bought the night cream for $5.99 without a coupon (gasp!) and got back $10, but I still burned more ECBs than I wanted to. Oh well. I spent less than $2 oop for everything up there, so it's hard to not be happy about that!

(By the way... I got a raincheck for the first time at CVS and have a question. My raincheck is for the Powerade. I have 8 $0.75/1 coupons, so I asked her to write it for buy 4 and get 4 free. Then I got to thinking that they'll have to take off 4 of them manually, so I'm wondering if they'll take my coupons on the free ones. Has anyone done this before?)

    I did that with the intuition razor blades last week. The second coupon beeped, but the cashier put it through. Hopefully you'll have the same luck!
