Today was better than Thanksgiving!

Oh, CVS...You've given me such a wonderful early Christmas present...

I won't bore you with the details, but suffice it to say that I hit the CVS 2-Day sale after lunch and made a killing. Well, $26.03 to be exact, and that's not including the $9 in rebates I'll apply for.

I dragged Lance along as an accomplice. We loaded up our baskets with the carefully chosen free-after-rebate items, and used each of our cards to maximize the savings. The only item that was completely missing was the Arm & Hammer Essentials cleaner. And they only had one box of Benefiber, but luckily they had a few bottles of Complete left to fill the void in my transactions.

Everything went off without a hitch! I walked out with $107.71 worth of merchandise, having only paid $2.80 in cash, and ended up with $28.83 MORE in ExtraCare Bucks than I came in with! AAAAAAND I'll be submitting the rebate form for one Excedrin and one Zantac, which is another $8.98 back in my pocket!

Can you tell I'm stoked?

But do you know what REALLY excited me? When the receipts printed out, and they were both over six feet long! I used to joke to Lance that one day my receipt would be longer than me, and today it really happened. Twice. Ha ha!

Love it, Katy!!! Not just one, but two Katy-sized receipts. You made a killing and are the Nashville Queen of CVS!!! YOU ROCK!!!

What rebate form? I bought both medications... but they may have been in different transactions. Does that count? AND where can I get the form?

Absolutely LOVE your receipt picture. What joy!

Thanks, all!

Sheila, the two rebates are:
-Zantac, rebate form located next to the $1 coupon in the 11/09/08 SmartSource
-Excedrin Express Gels, rebate form located next to the $2 coupon in the 10/19/08 SmartSource

You'll need them on two separate receipts, since you need to send in the original receipt for each rebate. So if you bought them in separate transactions, you're good to go!
