I got myself some deals today!
Yesterday I stocked up on Duracell batteries at CVS. I got $15 ECB when I purchased $20 worth of batteries and I sweetened the deal with two .75 off manufacturers coupons. In the end, I got the batteries for $3.50. I also used $9.50 worth of other ECBS toward this purchase as I had a few other essentials to buy. Yes, chocolate is essential. I bought two bags of Hershey’s Bliss chocolates for 2/$6 and used a $2.50 off coupon.
As a bonus I also received a $10 off a $50 purchase coupon–my excitement for the day!
Today I went back (good thing CVS is on the way home from work!), and rolled my $15 ECB into an Olay purchase. I bought three Olay Regenerists products.
Regenerist 14 Day Intervention Kit – $29.99
Regenerist Night Creme – $20.99
Regenerist Cleanser – $7.99
I had coupons for each item–one for $5 off (requested this coupon from Olay.com), and two from the Sunday inserts for $3 each. New total — $47.97.
I bought a few other things including the new Cover Girl mascara which got me a Cover Girl eye liner for free, plus I had a $1 off coupon for the mascara. Cost for both — $7.49 (the eyeliner shelf price was $4.09).
I also got a gallon of Viva milk for $3.49 and had a 50 cents off coupon for that.
Then I rolled my $15 ECB and used my $10 off the $50 purchase coupon.
I got $75.04 worth of stuff for $33.45! Even the register lady was impressed.
That’s not the end of my savings! I’m sending in for the $20 Olay rebate when you buy $50 worth of Olay products. Rebate form is available for download at Olay.com. Once I get the rebate I will have a final cost of $13.45!
Ideally I would have liked to have made my Olay purchases on sale, but I was out of moisturizer and cleanser. I couldn’t really wait at my age.
I’m 41 years old–yes, I NEED the 14 day intervention kit….I’ll let you know how it works….I expect to look 25 in two weeks.
Tomorrow I plan to go back and get the L’Oreal Age Perfect Pro-Calcium moisturizer for “mature, dull skin”. It’s free after ECBs, then I can roll the ECBs into something practical like toothbrush heads for our electric toothbrushes. Boring, but like chocolate, essential.
