We were out of baby Motrin and my poor little Maddie has 6 teeth cutting through right now - 4 of those are molars! There is no waiting for a stock up sale in this type of situation.
So, instead of heading to Wal-Mart like the old me would have done, I went to CVS to create as little out of pocket as possible.
8.99 CVS brand motrin - egads! That is SOOOO expensive!
.49 & .50 CVS tissues FREE
4.99 Air Wick FREE
.79 clearanced Glade refill FREE
2.99 Colgate .01 profit
.99 CVS lotion 2.01 profit
.50 candy corn - total splurge! These are so yummy!
1/2 CVS tissues CRT
-3/1 any skin care CVS CRT
-6/1 Airwick MQ - adjusted to 4.99, I was hoping for overage on this!
-1/1 Glade MQ- adjusted to .79, I was hoping for overage on this too!
-1/1 Colgate MQ
4.46 + 1.20 tax = 5.66 total (paid with 3.98 eb, 1.68 on giftcard)
SUMMARY = 3.66 cost
1. My tax was definitely higher than it should have been because the cashier added a 1.98eb on as a non-taxable item twice and then took off the 1.98 twice as a cvs mfr coupon. Irritating.
2. I wasn't planning on so much out of pocket. I had a 3/10 any CVS brand purchase CRT that I didn't realize expired! Gotta watch those dates!
All in all, 3.66 is not bad for a full size bottle of motrin, plus all the other stuff I got. Especially considering I didn't have to actually pay anything out of pocket. Much better than just paying $5 or $6 for the equate brand.
