More Fun at CVS

CVS has just released their February monthly Extra Care Bucks (ECB) list. There’s some really great match ups here for coupons.

They’ve had a lot of deals for toothpaste lately. This month, get $2 ECBs when you buy colgate total 7.6-11 oz. Use the .75 coupon that was in Smart Source 1/18, or the one for $1 that will appear in Sunday’s paper. And this week, when you buy $15 worth of colgate palmolive products, you get $5 ECBs. Since the Colgate total (6 oz) is 2 for $5 this week, you can use those coupons to buy the toothpaste on sale. Other products in this promotion are Colgate 2 in 2, Colgate 360 toothbrush, or any max fresh paste or brush, 2 for $5, Speedstick deodorant 2 for $5, Softsoap Elements liquid hand soap for $1, Palmolive dishwashing liquid for .97, Fabuloso or Murphy oil soap 2 for $5, Suavitel Fabric softener 2 for $7, and Soft Soap or Irish spring body wash 2 for $7 or 3 pk Irish Spring bar soap $2. Now here’s how this stacking up works:

Purchase $15 of the above listed products. YOur choice.

Use the following coupons on your selected purchases:
$.75 or $.75/2 Speed stick (SS 2/1)
$.75 or $1.00 any Colgate (SS 1/18, 2/1)
$.35/1 Softsoap (SS 2/1)
$.75 softsoap body wash (SS 2/1)
$1 Softsoap bodywash printable
$.50 Irish Spring 3pk (SS 2/1)
$.25 Pamolive (SS 2/1)

Depending on how many coupons you have, and how many of each product you buy, your savings will vary. Just imagine stocking up on Palmolive at that price – assuming the store does not have limits – and then deducting coupons – and then getting $5 back in ECBs.

Some other ECB deals this week are
$5 ECB when you buy 2 Theraflu or triaminic. You can use a $2 Theraflu printable, $1.50 Theraflu (SS 1/4), $1.50 Triaminic Printable, and $1 Triaminic (SS 1/04)

$1 ECB when you buy Welches grape juice 64 oz (limit one)
$2.49 ECB when you buy Excedrin 10 count vial. This makes it free.

NOw what do you do with those ECBs? You bring them back to CVS NEXT WEEK, pair up sales, coupons, and ECB offers – and pay for what you buy with ECBs. Then do the same thing again and again.

Meantime, you are accumulating quarterly ECBs on every item you purchase, 2% on your purchases minus coupons.

You cannot use ECBs to pay for prescriptions, tobacco, alcohol, prepaid cards, giftcards, stamps, lottery, or money orders. But you can use them to pay for just about everything else in the store.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
