Don't you love it when the savings outweigh the money you spent?
Yesterday, at CVS, I bought a total of 37.86 in merchandise... for which I paid 13.30.
And $6 in ECBs back for buying a Gillette Fusion Razor*! (And I had a coupon for it, too!)
I used $7 in mfr coupons and 14.98 in ECBs. Plus, of course, some items I bought were on sale.
Money saving advice of the day: always, always, ALWAYS check the bottom of your CVS receipt. Not only did I get some ECBs last week (used this week) which I expected, I also found a freebie coupon for multivitamins--worth 5.99!
*My husband sees all these razors I buy and says yesterday, "I hope you're getting these on sale, because you seem to buy a lot of them." I said, "I had a coupon and ECBs and I get ECBs back, so either I'm paying about a buck for a 9.99 razor or I'm making a profit."
I showed him my receipt today. Needless to say, he was pretty impressed.
