Shopping and saving with coupons doesn’t need to take a lot of time to save money. I stopped at CVS today and within about 15 – 20 minutes in the store I was able to save over $50 with coupons in yesterday’s coupon insert and coupons from the CVS coupon machine in the store when you scan your CVS card. The manufacturer coupons used were all in the coupon inserts on Sunday, Sept 29.
I also had a $25 certificate from the DirecTV Viggle program so I ended up paying $16.67 and got $8 Extra Care Bucks coupons to use on a future purchase.
Following are the items I purchased, sale prices when using Extra Care card and coupons used.
From the coupon machine I received a $10 off $50 coupon.
2 Natural Instincts hair color 2/$12 (saved $2 per box) used $5 off 2 boxes coupon from newspaper
5 Gatorade 5/$5 (saved 1.49 per bottle) Got a $1/5 coupon from coupon machine so they ended up being 5/$4
2 bottles of Dawn $0.99 (saved $1.00 and $0.78) There were 2 – $0.25 coupons in yesterday’s paper
2 Charmin $9.99 each (saved $6.80 per package) Used 1 – $1.00 and 1 – $0.25 coupon from the newspaper (if you happen to have more than one set of inserts you could save even more by using 2 – $1.00 coupons) Also they have a deal if you spend $20 or more of certain items you will receive $5 ECG to use on a future purchase. This included the Dawn and Charmin.
