I haven’t written one of these posts in a long time. I am SO EXCITED to share with you the awesome shopping trip I had at CVS Pharmacy today! If everything had been full price (no sales or coupons) and I paid with my own money, the total would have been over $90. How much did I pay after the sales, coupons, $10 gift card promo, and using a $50 gift card I earned from MyPoints? Nothing! Zip! Zilch! Zero! In fact, I still have nine cents left on the gift card.
Needless to say, I am extremely happy. My goal is always to save more than I spend. Today, I didn’t spend anything at all.
Here is everything I “bought” and how I got it.
Transaction #1 (on the left side of the photo) looks like this:
Transaction #2 (on the right side of the photo) looks like this:
Click on each photo above to ZOOM in on the details. You will be able to see every single item I bought, how much it cost versus how much I saved. I only used one manufacturer’s coupon (25 cents off Dawn dish soap). Most everything else was on sale Buy 1 Get 1 FREE (the Nature Made vitamins) or (like the laundry detergent) 50% off regular price.
In the first transaction, I spent the required minimum $30 on specific items in order to score the $10 promotional gift card. I used the CVS Pharmacy gift card I earned from MyPoints to pay for transaction #1 and had $19.17 left on it.
In the second transaction, I used the $10 I earned in the first transaction plus the rest of the MyPoints gift card and still have 9 cents left on it.
If you’re not on MyPoints yet, it’s just like any other rewards programs where you earn points based on actions you perform: shop, search, play games, read emails, take surveys, etc. Click here to read more!
