My CVS Trip – 10/11


I didn’t take a photo of everything I bought because I ended up just using extra care bucks that were about to expire. I purchased the 12 double roll packs of Charmin toilet paper for $3.99 after coupon and extra care buck ($1.00 per 12 pack – limit 3) and one pack of 8 AA batteries for the buy $15, get $5 extra care bucks promo. I also got two of the Halloween pumpkin carving tool and the nylon Halloween bag as part of the Halloween extra care buck promotions which end on Tuesday.

The 8AA Energizer batteries rang up for $8.99 even though they were listed on sale in the ad for $5.99, so I took them back and got $3.00 refunded. $8.99 is still listed on my card though, which means I can buy another pack for $5.99 (minus $1.00 coupon) and will probably get $5.00 extra care bucks back. So around $2.50 for an 8-pack of AA batteries…not the best price on batteries, but my stash from last year is running low.

Candy deal
If you buy $20 worth of Halloween candy, you will get $5.00 extra care bucks.

I had a CVS CRT for $2.00 off 2 bags of Hershey Kisses and there are $1.00/1 coupons in the 9/13 SS insert. They’re on sale for $3.00 each, so I paid $2.00 for 2 bags. I also bought two bags of Willy Wonka candy ($5.00 each) and two bags of Nestle Crunch ($3.00 each), and used four $1.00 printable coupons (2 for Nestle Crunch and 2 for Willy Wonka).

I paid $14 and received $5 extra care bucks, so $9.00 for six bags of candy. Not the best deal ever, but I’m stocked up for Halloween candy now and didn’t spend anything out of pocket (just used up extra care bucks).

My CVS had an Arm & Hammer toothpaste display near the cosmetics. It is a big, stand-alone box full of trial sizes of the Advance White toothpaste for $0.01 with CVS card. It’s a limit of 1 per transaction, while supplies last. I often have an extra care buck that is $0.01 more than the price of the item I want to buy, so this $0.01 filler is nice in case I get a cashier that doesn’t want to adjust the extra care buck. I don’t know how many stores carry it or how long it will be available, but look for it if you need a $0.01 filler or want to get an almost free trial sized toothpaste.
