Yep! You read the title correctly!
Talk about doing the Happy Dance! I was tickled by the amount I saved. How did I do it? Well…
CVS is having a sale on some of the Puffs Tissues this week. I went right for the ones that are $.99 and started my shopping adventure!
I also had two manufacturer coupons for Puffs Tissue. Each saved me $.25 for the purchase of three boxes. That’s why I ended up buying six boxes.
Lastly, I’d been given a $5.00 in CVS ExtraBucks during a previous purchase. ExtraBucks are earned by using my CVS ExtraCare loyalty card. Read my post Couponing: Part One to learn about loyalty cards. To learn about the CVS ExtraCare card, and how it helps you to earn free items, read: ExtraCare
$.99 x 6= $5.94 - $.50 (manufacturer coupons) = $5.44- $5.00 ExtraBucks = $.44 + $.03 tax = $.47 OOP (Out of pocket)
As a side note: Since the Puffs were on sale, I actually saved a grand total of $12.50!
That’s nothing to sneeze at!
