CVS Clearance Find

Sleet on the road. Snowing. Not really a good weather to go out and drive tonight. But i have to. DD have an Orchestra concert. So before i left home i browse on the CVS forum, and Walgreens forum at weusecoupon. and I decided to stop at CVS tonight. So after the concert I went to CVS. I read on the thread that there’s a Conair Steam Waver Infiniti Pro on Clearance. My daughter begging mo for months now to buy a new flat iron. I told her not at this moment we will wait for a sale. And sure enough, they have 3 different hair styling items that’s on clearance . Just 1 of each. So I decided to buy it all. I have a lot of ECB to use. I’m so happy about it. I never find a good clearance at my local CVS. I always find the leftovers. LOL. And for the a nice surprise again, I scan my card and I got another $10 off $50. Can you believe that. I’m so totally thrilled about this trip. This is what I bought tonight.

FREE Granola Bars and Chex Mix

HI everyone. Last Saturday, I went to our local Walgreens. Which btw, one of my favorite store. They always have a great deal. I know some of you maybe thinking, clipping coupons is really taking a lot of times. But it doesn’t need to be like that. You don’t have to be extreme to save some money. Specially at this type of economy we have, I think every little savings count. So after stocking up on soda now it’s time for me to stock up on some healthy snacks. I spent $3.52 for everything I bought. And 1 hour for gathering my coupons and buying this. So I bought the following and made 3 transactions.

IMG_2500

200 pcs Quaker Yogurt Granola Bars $0.50 each and then for every4 pieces I bought I earned 250 Balance Rewards points. So I earned 12500 points or equivalent to $12.50.
1 box of Glad Trash Bag
15 Turtle Chex Mix $0.99 each
15 Cheddar Chex Mix $0.99 each
1 Deans Half and Half
1 Organix Treatment Brazilian Keratin $4.99 – this is a really good deal because the reg.price of this is $14.99 and then it’s on sale for $4.99 and Buy 1 get 1 for %50 off and then you get an additional 1000 Balance Rewards which equivalent to $1 so $6.98 for both items.
1 Organix Moroccan Argan Oil $2.49
2 Organix Morrocan Argan Oil Conditioner $4.99 each
2 Organix Morrocan Argan Oil Shampoo $2.49 each
10 boxes of Nature Valley Granola Bars $2 each

And this is the transaction breakdown.

Transaction #1

200 Quaker Granola Bars $100 or $0.50 each
15 Turtle Flavor Chex Mix $14.85
15 Cheddar Flvaor Chex Mix $14.85
1 Deans Half and Half $1.79
Total: $131.49

Coupon Used:

100 $1 off 2 Quaker Yogurt

18 $0.50 off 1 Chex Mix
$1 off 2 Chex Mix Store Coupons deducted $15
Subtotal after Coupons: $0.29
Tax: $0.00
Total Out of Pocket: $0.29
And I said I earned 12500 points or $12.50 for buying the Quaker Granola bars. So let’s say they paid me to buy this items. And I’m able to give the Granola bars to the shelter. And I’m really excited about that. The only way I can give back to the community.
