All For Just $3
I don't shop at CVS all that often but when I do, I feel like I really get such great deals! Here's a perfect example that I scored yesterday.
(2) 12-Pack Lipton Iced Tea reg. $ 6.99, sale $5
(2) Cheetos reg. $3.49, sale $3
-(1) $2/2 Lipton Iced Tea 10/02 Pepsico Moments
-(1) $1/2 Cheetos 10/02 Pepsico Moments
-(1) $10 ECB from two weeks ago
Total value purchased ... $20.96
Paid out of pocket ... $3
Percentage saved ... 93%
Earned ... $5 ECB
Now I know that not everyone has a $10 ECB burning a hole in their pockets. But I make a big point not to factor in store funny money reward bucks until I actually use them. So while most would consider this a Money Maker (paid $3, earned $5 ECB), I really only factor in pennies from my pocket. So I paid $3. Even if you didn't have the ECB to use, this would still be a pretty good deal. And you could buy two Starbucks Frab 4 packs and use the $2/2 coupon also in the same 10/02 Pepsico Moments insert to keep the same total.
