    Well, since it seems that IAHD is away from the boards. I thought I would start a thread for this week since the week already started! I don't mean to step on anyone's toes.

    Here is what I did today. Not great, I lost some ECB, but got mostly useful items instead of just stockpiling.

    Store 1:

    Skippy Peanut butter 1.50
    Tide HE detergent 5.99
    Tide HE detergent 5.99
    Excedrin Migraine 1.99
    French's Mustard .66
    Kraft BBQ Sauce .66
    Sierra Mist 1.69
    Sierra Mist Free
    -.35 Tide (whoopie!!)
    -.50 French's printable
    -1.69 Sierra Mist printable
    -2.00 Excedrin migraine printable
    -5.00 ECB
    -8.97 ECB
    Subtotal -.03
    IL 8.0% tax .14
    IL 1.75% tax .08
    Total .19

    And I got back $4 for the Tide. I lost a few ECB, but that usually happens when I buy detergent.


    Store #2

    Excedrin Migraine 1.99
    French's Mustard .66
    Kraft BBQ .66
    Aquafresh Extreme Clean 2.99
    Aquafresh Extreme Clean 2.99
    Sierra Mist 1.69
    Sierra Mist Free
    -.66 French's Mustard free coupon
    -$1 Aquafresh coupon
    -$1.69 Sierra mist printable
    -$2 Excedrin Migraine printable
    -$4.99 ECB
    Subtotal .64
    IL 8.0% tax .08
    IL 8.0% tax .14
    IL 1.75% tax .06
    Total .92

    And I got back $5.98 in ECB for the Aquafresh.

    Thanks for the info, Maggie. :)
    I just did a couple of the Revlon nailpolishes and the Tide detergent. I also lost quite a few ECB's on the detergent but I needed it so I guess I can live with that. ;)

    I had a pretty good trip on Sunday. I am going back today for Tide and will need to use some ECBs. I am frustrated that I bought my limit of Tums when I was able to get the printable coupon for $2.25 just yesterday. Oh well! I shouldn't be greedy!

    Here is my scenario:
    4 bottles of Sierra Mist $3.58
    2 Tums QuickPack $9.38
    2 Revlon Nailcolor $7.98


    1 .75 Tums coupon
    1 1.00 Tums coupon
    1 2.00 Revlon coupon
    1 1.00 Revlon coupon
    1 BOGO Sierra Mist coupon (1.69)
    1 $4/20 coupon
    10.00 ECB

    Total OOP: .61

    ECBs earned: 15.38



    Thank you to the regular posters who keep this information available to us!!:hug:

    I lost a good bit of ECBs this week too but I had several about to expire.

    I did the Lipton deal and the Tide. My store was out of the mustard but I got a rain check. I also got 2 nail polishes and 5 bottles of BBQ sauce.

    Ok, I wanted you all to see what I got and tell me if you think I am doing good at this.

    today, I had 10.00 in ECBs I could use
    I purchased
    2 Lipton Tea Bags
    1 Hellmans mayo
    2 skippy pb
    1 palm liquid
    1 excedrin migraine
    2 post cereals (BOGO)
    Rolo (not needed but on sale and a treat)
    1 BC fudge brownie mix

    I had 10.00 in ECBs
    I had the 2.00 coupon for Excedrin.



    I paid 12.37 OOP. I saved 31.97.I earned 3.00 ECB, 1.00 ECB, $4 off $20, save $3 on any 2 body washes, free $25 gift card with new prescription.

    If I do the prescription thing, how do I get the gift card? Will it be printed on the receipt or like a real gift card?

    THANKS!!!!!

    Has anyone done the gift card offer? I am thinking you spend $50 and get $75, I can use the AmEx myself for future purchases. I have$16 in ECBs if they let you use them and a $4/$20 which I doubt I can use but I am thinking if I spend $30 I get $75. Am I missing something? Seems better than getting ECBs as I can use the AmEx anywhere I want.

    TIA

    I know it seems like a good deal, but I'm pretty sure you can't use ECBs for any gift card purchases. I know one time I tried to use my CVS gift cards I had gotten from a prescription to buy and itunes gift card and they wouldn't let me.

    Okay went to CVS this eve to get prescription refilled (1 of our pharmacists will let you use a coupon for a GC if you do not transfer it :thumbsup2 ) got my med for free (w/ promo from drug manufacturer, they paid my copay) and got a $25 GC. Then I bought:

    3 80 oz bottles of Cheer (on clearance for $1.75 ea)
    1 box of the oxy zit pads (for DD15 :rotfl2: ) makes my skin ache just holding the bottle for $5.79
    1 pkg of Ben Gay heat therapy pads (? or whatever they're called) 25% bonus box too $6.99
    2 reg sized kit kat caramel candy bars .20 ea on clearance

    total before tx 18.03
    - $5 off $15 coupon
    - $3 off $10 CRT
    - $1 oxy zit manu coupon
    - $1 Ben Gay coupon on box
    - $1 cheer coupon X 3 on the bottles (only good at CVS)
    - $2 ECB
    - $3 ECB
    OOP incl tx was .43
    and I got back $1 ECB on the oxy zit pads and $2 cash for what was an 'old' ECB sign for the bengay patches.
    So basically I'm out $2 in ECBS, but all in all, I thought I did pretty well. Esp with the $25 GC.

    Tomorrow I'm picking up a new asthma inhaler (current one is about to expire on the actual inhaler) and I found a $30 GC competitor coupon in our local grocery store ad. I think right now I've got at least $250 in GCs to CVS. Too bad WDW doesn't take CVS GCs :rotfl2:

    I've gotten at least $250 in GCs from prescriptions. Just this week DS was put on an antibiotic and one day later he broke out in a rash. Now we have another antibiotic and a cream for the rash= $75 in GCs. While I hate that he is sick (although he isn't in pain or miserable) I make the most of it with the GCs. I'm waiting until 6/1 to start using these. This week is not really good CVS week for me.
