Yay!1 My awesome cvs trip 10-28 w/pic!!

I'm in MD and we're awaiting Sandy and hoping it's not too bad. Last year we got a scare with Irene but she wasn't as bad as predicted so I'm hoping it's the same this time. Either way we are taking precautions and I hope everyone stays safe and well stocked up just in case. Anyhow, I was so excited that I had a 25% off and a 20% off, so I went in to my CVS with no plan just a mental note of all the deals I wanted to get. I had all my coupons cut and ready. Here's what I got:

2 Herbal Essence (1 shampoo and 1 mousse) * 2.99x2= 5.98
2 Thermacare * 6.79x2= 13.58
2 Pampers * 8.99x2= *17.98
1 Bounty Towels 6 pack * 5.77
1 Honey Nut Cheerios * 1.88
2 Covergirl Outlast * BOGO 8.99+4.49= 13.48
2 Covergirl Liptsticks * BOGO 6.79+3.39= 10.18
4 Revlon toe clippers * 4.29x4= 17.16
2 Aveeno Hydrating BW * 7.79x2= 15.58
2 Aveeno Lotions * 7.99x2= 15.98
1 PF lip gloss * 9.99
1 Hydro Silk Refills * 18.29
1 Hydro Silk Razor * 12.49
1 Nexxus Shampoo * 10.49

COUPONS USED:
1 BOGO HE * auto-deducted 6.99
2 $3/1 Thermacare IP
2 $2/1 Pampers
1 $3/$15 Baby Care (CVS Q)
1 $1/1 Bounty
1 .50/1 Honey Nut Cheerios IP
1 $3/2 Covergirl cosmetics
1 $2/1 Outlast (CVS Q)
1 $5/2 Covergirl Lip Products
1 BOGO Hydro silk razor free wyb Hydro silk refill IP
1 $6/1 Hydro Silk refill FB IP
1 $3/1 Nexxus (CVS Q)
1 25% OFF * 24.58
1 20% OFF * 14.75
43 in ECBs

**Total BEFORE CVS Card, Coupons, & ECBs: $191.19
**Total OOP after all discounts/coupons: $40.43 OOP
(High I know but I love Shick Silk Razors and Aveeno products so it was worth it to me plus I did still save $157.34!!!)

ECBS RECEIVED:
$10 P&G
$5 ADVIL
$15 AVEENO
$14 REVLON
$6 PF
AND A $10/$50 CVS Q PRINTED ON THE BOTTOM OF MY RECEIPT
I will also get $10 in Beauty rewards and .50 from SavingStar for my HN Cheerios

I took this opportunity to buy EXPENSIVE Aveeno products because I love Aveeno! So with my % off coupons and the ECBs I got back I knew I'd save a lot! So I stocked up. As you may have noticed I forgot to use my Aveeno coupons and I realized this after paying. My cashier had been scrutinizing every coupon I used and almost wouldn't let me use the BOGO Hydro Silk coupon because it beeped but the manager came to push it through after looking at my items. So when I went back to let my cashier know I forgot to use my 2- $3/2 Aveeno coupons she carefully read the coupons and let me know about the 1 PER PERSON exclusion. I had just bought my coupons and clipped them in the car so I didn't note that (oops!) but I'm glad she noted it. So she let me use 1 $3/1 q and $1/1 q and I got back $4 in cash. So really I paid $36.43 oop and got back $50 in ECBs!! I also have another $10 beauty rewards that printed today and I forgot to use so I'll have $70 in ECBs next time I shop. So is this trip considered a MM? I'm still not good at figuring it out.

You did awesome!!! How I figure out if something is a MM is adding up what I paid in wether it be ECBs and /or Cash. You paid $79.43 total (cash and ECBs) and walked away with $60 in ECBs correct because $10 came from the red machine and was part of a previous purchase? Therefore, $79.43-$60 in ECBs back from today's trip= like you paid $19.43 for all. Not bad.

Awesome trip! I cut my Aveeno coupons out, and went straight to the store this morning. I didn't read it either. Oops.. From what I'm reading, overall this trip cost you 9.43 (43 EB plus 36.43 = 79.43 minus 70 EB left), not a money maker, but still an awesome trip!!

I'm in Fredrick, MD. We had a lot of rain and very strong winds but we didn't lose power here. Some people in nearby counties did but we got lucky. No damage here. It was scary though. Hope you're safe.

I think a lot of people calculate it differently. I consider a MM a deal one where my OOP and EBs spent equal less than the EBs that I walk away with, but I determine whether or not I will do a deal based on what my OOP will be. So if I'm going to have to pay a lot of OOP, even if I would walk away with a profit in EBs, I'll take a pass on the deal.

For example this week the Revlon deal is buy (2)/Get $7 in EBs. I would only do this deal if I could roll into it and had a $/$$ or a lot of EBs to absorb some of the OOP. The cheapest deal at my store was $2.19 for a nail clipper. I would not pay $4.38 plus tax OOP for a $7 EB; but I'd definitely use the deal to roll EBs that were ready to expire.

Were you including her $10/$50 in your count? I count only $60 in EBs earned. $50 at the register and $10 that she will get for BC.

In either case, that's a lot of product for +/- $20 in OOP.
