Rolling Extra bucks at CVS

Yes, its time for another CVS post. Let's start from the beginning. First, I purchased 3 NovaMax Glucose Monitors paying zero (not even a penny). With this purchase I received $60 is Extra Care Bucks (ECBs) to use on future purchase. Read more about how I did this here.

My $60 dollars had to be spent all at once...which was harder than I thought. Granted, we could have walked in picked up $60 worth of merchandise and walked out..but we wanted to purchase more items to give us more ECBs, thus making even more money off the original deal. Our total was nearly $100 dollars prior to coupons and ECBs. By the time it was all said and done we paid just over $3.00 out of pocket and received almost $61.98 in ECBs. To break it down...

4 bottles Fruit 2 0 water: Buy One, Get One AND 2 Coupons ($1 off 2)
2 bags Dark Chocolate M&Ms: Coupon (Buy One, Get One) and $2 ECB earned
2 bottles Saline Solution: We just need these
1 box Kleenex: Needed these too, we are fighting off colds
2 Magazines: Just wanted these for fun. :)
2 Ameal BP: 2 Coupons ($3 off each) and $59.98 ECBs earned
Plus a $10 off coupons any purchase over $50.
And our ECB credit of $60.00 from the glucose monitors.

Over the next few weeks we will try to roll over those ECBs and the others we have saved up into more deals.
