What you've all been waiting for...

A picture of the toilet paper I bought! Riveting, I know.

Transaction 1:

  • L'Oreal Advanced Revitalift, on sale for $11.99, get 11.99 ECBs,
  • Used $3.00 Manufacturer's coupon and a $2 off $10 CVS coupon
  • Paid with 5.99 ECBs and $1.37 in cash

Transaction 2:

  • 4 12-packs of Cottonelle double rolls, $6.49 each, buy $25 of specified products get 10 ECBs
  • 1 Nivea Men's body wash, $4.99, get 4.99 ECBs
  • Used 2 $0.50 Cottonelle coupons, 1 $1 Nivea coupon, and a $5 off $30 coupon I got by email JUST THIS MORNING! (How lucky is that??)
  • Paid with 22.98 ECBs and $1.24 cash
So, I walked away this morning with all those goodies (which took a CVS shopping cart to transport), having spent $2.61 in cash, used 28.97 of my ECB stash, and earned back 26.98 ECBs. That means I "paid" exactly $4.60 for it all. ($2.61 + 28.97 - 26.98)

Knowing that the Revitalift would be GONE in another day's time, I went back after work with Lance's card and got both it and another Nivea body wash. After my coupons, I used 9.99 ECBs and paid $1.45 cash, and earned 16.98 in ECBs. That's a profit of $5.54, which puts me in the black for all of today's purchases!

Today's deals were awesome. Later on (probably Sunday), I'll go take advantage of their good deal on Mt. Dews and use some ECBs. That will stock Lance up for a while, hopefully until the next time they run another Pepsi product deal.
