The CVS Black Friday Sale started yesterday – and a number of readers got in on the early action.
Some of them used the 5-transaction scenario I laid out – and others put together their own super money-saving deals. All of them did AWESOME! I’m so impressed with everyone! 🙂
Here’s a fun pictorial peak at some of their CVS successes.
From Lesley ~ I spent $15.71, which I used my Cvs gift cards from previous weeks (so no actual cash from my bank account), and I have $17.97 in ECBs to use later. I couldn’t have done it without you! Thanks for putting the list together and helping my family save lots of money!
From Kimberly ~ We did ok for our first try. DH says he now gets the game and we can do better. We spent $17.64 for what would cost $45.64 and have $16.81 in ECBs left. Would have done better but the checkout lady ran the first two transactions together. The picture is missing the Carmex lip balm that is hiding under the towel.
From Shelley ~ [I did] countless transaction (my cashier was AMAZING – I even did a little shopping for her !) on 3 cards. $1.50 starting in ECB. 2 x $5/$25. $29.49 OOP. $41.75 ECB. GRAND TOTAL: $12.26 money maker. (I didn’t have a ton of coupons, so I’m thrilled with this!)
From Toby ~ I started with $7 ecb (from the Aveeno money maker, was $3.24 OOP then), had $6.69 OOP today, remain with $11.91 ecb.
And here’s my transaction – I followed my five transactions, but I did make a few substitutions on the spot. The only thing that didn’t go according to plan was that a few of the coupons that should have produced overaged beeped, so the cashier had to adjust them down. It happened on the Bayer aspirin, for example, so that turned out to be “just” free, rather than a money-maker. My total out of pocket was $7.03 + tax and I earned $21.96 in ECBs for next time I shop at CVS!
Any one else score big at CVS – or any of the other Black Friday sales? Feel free to BRAG in the comments!
