I had a very lucrative CVS trip today. One trip, two stores actually. Instead of sleeping in, I got up bright and early at 9:00 am (bright and early for me!) and found me some printables on HCW. And I printed them! Oh, I am in love with my printer. I got a 2/10 and a 4/20 to use today. And I got my quarterly EB's from the card scanner when I walked in the door. I got $3 on first, $1 on second, and $.50 on third. Anywho, here are my beautiful transactions:

1st store:

My plan worked perfectly and my single Breeze was still nestled behind the line of Contours. I did the Contour(duh-- Breeze) separately from the other stuff. So no OOP and no savings I'm counting on that. But the fastest $10 I'd made in weeks.

(6) Pepsi 12-packs--$20
(2) CVS toothbrushes--$5.98

Total--$25.98

Minus 4/20, $20.96 in EB's

Total OOP $1.09 with savings of $30.70 and $15.98 back in EB's.

2nd store:

I almost died when I saw 5 Breezes on the shelf. I didn't know what to do. Should I try to get them all at once? Should I get two, send DH in for two,and hide the one until Friday? I ended up trying just two. But then I asked the manager who rang me up if it was okay for me to get the rest. She said it was fine since the limit was 5 per card. WOOT! So I ended up snagging one of the booklets for the extra coupon I needed and bought the rest. Then I also got:

(1) Dawn--$.99
(2) CVS toothbrushes--$5.98
(1) milk--$3.99

Total--$10.96

Minus 2/10, $8.96 in EB's

Total OOP-- $0!!! I must've computed it a little wrong since my original plan included a Dial 3-pack which they didn't have. So I ended up with $5.97 left and a $6 EB to use. So no OOP after losing just 3 cents on my EB. I don't mind losing a few pennies for $0 OOP. I had a savings of $11.56 and got $5.98 back in EB's.

And my total EB's I have are:

1st card--$12.99
2nd card--$48.92
3rd card--$82.86

You rock Teri!

After the kiddo wakes up we are heading to the new mall (we got a postcard in the mail telling us we can go and get a free $10 gc) and that also happens to be located 1/2 to work where the 2 CVS stores are located, so I'll make hubby stop there too!

Can you sign up for a card online or does it have to be in person? I may just have to get another one if there are enough Breezes!!! Besides, I still have the rest of the month to look too!!!

Kris-- you can sign up for one online. It takes maybe a week for it to come.

I just signed up with my maiden name and my mom's address with my cell number. Can they look it up by that or do I have to wait for the card to get there?

I don't know how long before the card becomes active. I've never tried to use it before I got the actual card in the mail.

Great job, Teri. I just realized that only have one of the coupons for the Breeze and I can't find anymore books.

I'm pretty sure you can use it right away, Kris. I'm not positive, but you can try.
