My Deals This Week

Want to know how much I paid for all this?

Nothing.

No, that wasn't a typo.  Here's how I did it...

Rite Aid:
Crest Toothpaste on sale for $2.99
- $.75 coupon
Out of pocket $2.49 (tax included)
Rebate of $2.99
= $.50 profit

Target:
5 travel Axe deodorants $4.85
- (5) $1.00 coupons
OOP $.25 (tax only - I also had Q-tips on this transaction to buffer the .15 overage with the coupons)

CVS:
Transaction #1
4 cans Scrubbing Bubbles @ $2.50 ea = $10
- (2) $2/2 coupons
-5.00 ECB
OOP $1.83
Got back $5 ECBs for buying $10 in Scrubbing Bubbles
Profit $3.17

Transaction #2
8pk Bounty $6.99
9pk Charmin $5.49
-$2 CVS coupon for Bounty 8pk
-$.25 coupon Bounty
-$.25 coupon Charmin
-$9.00 ECBs
OOP $1.60
Got back $2.00 ECBs
Profit $.40

So, all said and done, I was paid $3.82 to take all of this out of the stores.  I love bargain shopping!
