I did however have GREAT success at CVS yesterday. I used this $2/2 coupon (you can print two- just hit back space after the first starts printing) to score four bottles of Listerine. They are sale this week 5/$5 (meaning they are a buck each). Buy (2), use (1) coupon. And they all end up FREE (plus tax of course).
Now when I first started couponing, I thought it would be better to get a big bottle and use the coupon. But now I look at things as price per use/ounce/serving. So this smaller bottle ends up being $0/serving with this particular sale and coupon. Clearly the best deal!
And one last bit about CVS, I finally got a good coupon from the magic red coupon thingy. I guess because I don't shop there all that often, I don't qualify for all the best coupons. But today I received a $1/1 Starbucks coffee coupon. I love those Starbucks Frappuccinos ($2). So I snagged one for half price today. No, not free. But I pay five times that for a drink when I have a meeting at Starbucks on a regular basis. And it was just a fun little yummy treat that I rarely buy (because they are not exactly a health food- ha).
