CVS April 4th, 2013….retail price $27.04, paid $1.30 plus I got $1 back in Extra Bucks

Here’s the breakdown:

Transaction 1:

CVS has a promo this week that when you scan your card, you get a coupon for a free bottle of Clear shampoo! (That’s why it always pays to check sale ads!)

Transaction 2:

Suave Lotion $3

Almay Eye Liner $5.99

Almay Eye Shadow $5.99

I had a store coupon for $5 off any $15 or higher purchase of lotion of cosmetic products. My actual order rang up $14.98 but I asked the manager if he would let me use the coupon anyway and he agreed.

I had a coupon for $5 off 2 Almay products (coupon can be found on and a coupon for a free Suave lotion -up to $3 (mailed promotion), plus I had $1 in Extra Bucks from my quarterly earn rewards.

Additionally, there is a promotion to get $3 back  in Extra Bucks when you buy select Almay products.

At the end of the first transaction, I had paid $1.06 and received $3 in CVS Extra Bucks.

Transaction 3:

I had a coupon for .75 cents off for Maxwell House Instant Coffee (coupon can be found on and I applied the $3 Extra Bucks from the previous transaction.

There is also a promotion to get $1 back in Extra Buck rewards when you buy the coffee.

I paid .24 cents for this transaction.

In total, I ended up paying $1.30 for everything plus I got a $1 back in Extra Bucks. I hope everyone followed my math!
