Saturday Shopping – they paid me!!

Today I headed out to CVS, Walgreens, and Target – and brought home a good haul 🙂  I forgot to take a pic this time, so I will just have to tell you what I got:


2 Colgate Total toothpastes – $2.99, get $2 EB, used $.75 coupons = $.24 each
4 Pantene shampoo/conditioners – $2.99, get $1 EB, used $3/2 coupons = $.50 each
3 Dove shampoo/conditioner (one was a double pack – look for these!) – $4.49 each, get $4.49 EB, used $2 coupon = $2 MM each
12 bottles of Nature’s Bounty vitamins – $4.99 to $6.99 each, used $5 rewards coupons, BOGO sale = $20 + MM
2 Stride Gum – $.99, get $.99 EB = Free
2 Dial Nutriskin bodywashes – $5.49, get $4.50 EB, used $1 coupons = Free
1 gallon milk – $3.29

My overall OOP was $1.24.  I used a giftcard to pay for that, so I really didnt pay anything 🙂  I also ended the day with $13 more in EB than I originally had.


3 Pilot Frixion pens =$.61, will submit for $4.50 MIR ($3.89 total profit)

I would have done more, but all my stores were out.  I got a couple rain checks, so I will try this in the middle of next week.  One store had pulled them all off the shelves & brought out 3 when I asked – I will never understand that way of thinking (hide the sale items so they dont sell out?!?!).


6 Seventh Generation cleaners – $2.99 each, used $1 manufacturer coupons & $1 Target coupons = $.99 each

I will submit these for the $5 Seventh Generation MIR, so overall I will make $4 on this one.  Not too shabby.  We also got DH a shirt because I got a $5 Merona catalina last time I was at the store.  I am glad they have started printing out the register coupons!

So overall today, once my rebates come in, I will have made about $21 to go shopping.  Yep – I love it 🙂

    Hi, Sam! Which Target did you find the 7th Generation at? We hit two and neither one had them. I wonder if it was only the Super Targets?

    Anyway, awesome shopping trip today. Good for you!

      I got it at Lee’s Summit. They had them all in the back, did you ask someone if they were back there? I think they are flying off the shelves as soon as they put them out.

    Yeah, they didn’t even have a spot for them. We talked to the manager for the department and he said they didn’t carry them but that Super Targets did. But then he told me something really great – my fav Target in Independence is getting ready to expand and become an ST. Woohoo!

    How do you buy so many of the CVS deals at once. I thought you were only able to have one EB card per address? Thanks And I love your site and Youtube videos. You are an awesome shopper.
