CVS Shopping Trip

First bit of advice...if you don't have a CVS ExtraCare card, sign up for one! It doesn't cost you anything, and you will be amazed at how much money you will save by simply having this card. You only qualify for these sales if you have a CVS ExtraCare card. When you are ready to checkout, you just hand the cashier your CVS card, they will scan it, and you will automatically receive the sale price for the items that you purchase. Let me show you what I mean...

Total Paid: $0.24

So you're probably wondering how I got all of these items for only $0.24. Here's how...

Aussie Gel & Herbal Essences Shampoo: 2 for $5.97
-(2) x $1.00 off Aussies or Herbal Essences coupons found in a previous Sunday paper
Net Cost: $5.97-$2.00 in coupons=$3.97*
*CVS is running the following sale: if you buy 2 of these brands, you will receive $2.00 in ExtraCare Bucks that you can apply to your next purchase. ExtraCare Bucks act as cash at CVS.
(You can find this sale in their weekly ad that came out today)

Total Due at Checkout: $0.17 + $0.07 tax = $0.24 + $2.00 in ExtraCare Bucks that I will be able to use on my next CVS purchase.
