My 2yo calls this cereal, "Bug Cereal" and he loves it! So when I saw it was a way to earn ECBs I thought, "What the heck!" I bought 6 boxes (3/$10). I used 4 $1 coupons; a $3/15 CVS coupon and a $10 ECB. I paid 3.21 oop and earned $10 in ECBs. Not bad I guess.
My second deal was derailed when the store I went to did not have the Oral B toothbrushes. They were also out of the mouthrinse so I did a little improv on the spot. I got 8 SmartWaters (1 litre each). They were on sale for $1 and in the CVS beauty booklets there are q's for $1 off 2. I also completed the swab and bandage deals. And then I found the Garnier stuff that is buy 2 get $10. I spent more oop than I would like since I only had q's for the water and for some reason I didn't have any ECBs attached with my deal sheet for this one. I will blame Mommy-brain. It ended up being 20.25 oop but I earned 13.99 in ECBs.
I started the week with 37.96 in ECBs (I used to have about $75 but a few weeks ago I let about $50 expire on accident. Yes, I was very sad and yes, I checked with all my local stores and no one would take them.). And ended with 51.95 in ECBs. Again not bad.
I am by no means an expert on this but I am learning and I have not needed to buy tooth paste in about 6 months (that doesn't mean that I haven't bought--I just haven't needed to! LOL) But to see more CVS'ing and people who really know what they are doing, check out The "Cent"sible Sawyer.
