I had this insane urge to buy something today so I headed to CVS where I could shop without damaging my pocket book.

First trip in:
Animated Coca Cola Polar Bear - $9.99 (half off)
1 2 Back FRER tests for April - $12.49
3 Oasis Sprays - $17.97 (I'm kicking myself that I'd given up them getting these in and thus didn't have coupons with me.)
1 2pack Energy Shots - $4.99
1 Christmas Stocking - $1.49 (half off)
1 pack of toys for the dogs - $1.00 (half off)
1 pack of Candy Canes - $0.49 (half off)
I used various coupons and $20 in ECBS and spent $0.96 OOP (couldn't find my GC).

I got back $17.97 for the oasis, $4.99 for the energy shots and a $5 one printed because I'd called in about my energizer one not printing on Sunday when I did two transactions back to back.

Second trip in:
3 packs of 4 D energizer batteries - $15.87
1 Garnier Mousse for Curly Hair - $4.29
Various coupons and $5 in ECBs and the balance was $4.XX that I used my GC to pay so $0 OOP!!!

AND guess what printed?!?! A $10 ECB for the batteries? I have no idea why...well I do I guess the system realized that I'd bought $30 in batteries and so it gave me the $10 but I was under the impression from HCW that once the system reconciled itself after I bought the first $15 that the $5 I was supposed to get from that was lost forever which is why I called CS. I guess that's not true! So woohoo for me!

So I walked in with $20 in ECBS and some money on a GC (I think around $12 or so). And walked out with $32.96 in ECBS and about $8 on a GC! I'm happy!

Yeah, I try not to take advantage of every single $/$$ though. But they wouldn't have a problem with it if I did.

Oh! And Kim, not that it helps now, but they had Webkinz! $14.99 each, I'm not sure if that's a good price or not.
