Coupon Craziness 5.75

I think this is the last CVS/Walgreen’s trip this week.

I went to CVS yesterday because the Suave coupons were finally found/printed for the CVS deal, thanks to Money Saving Mom.

I got 3 suave body washes for $2 each = $6.00 – (2) $1/1 IP. = $4.00 – $2 ECB’s = $2/3 ($0.67 each)

It could work better if you got 3 $1/1 Q’s to print, but I couldn’t make that work.   $0.67 was still good enough for me to do it.

BUT I had to go annoy a manager to make it happen.   The signs and ad say $2.00 each.   They so graciously offered me a $0.01 discount on each bottle.  They rang up at $1.99 instead of $2.00.   Thus making me $0.03 short of getting my $2 ECB.   So I had to go in today to make them fix it.   I wasn’t feeling terribly assertive yesterday until I got back and then my bro talked me off the ledge before I had a chance to call the Cape Coral Hospital and try to make them adjust their nonsense.

But it’s been fixed.

Total P.E. ECB’s Used – $4.00
