CVS Shopping on a Ten Dollar Budget

Hello Everyone,

Well my shopping went well and I had a very Frugalicious Day. For those of you that haven't seen it the Contour Monitor's are a very good money maker, you get them for free then you send in the rebate for $30.00 back ($$$$$$$$).

Also I wanted to mention for those of you that are just checking in for the first time that I started this Monday CVS shopping with zero EB and now I just roll over my ECB and spend no more than $10.00 a week.

Oh let me tell you, last week I had a cashier that did not accept my coupon for $5 off $25 because she said my total would not be $25 after all my coupons. Needless to say, I called corporate office and they said the cashier was in the wrong and added $5.00 EB to my card. I also used my $4.00 EB from my fall spending again ( have used it over & over) Until it expires I'll keep using it.


Okay here s what bought today:

****NOTE****
I was informed that if you use a Q to get the monitor for FREE you will not receive the rebate. However, I did receive rebates before so hopefully it will work again. If not they were free anyways. (Cross our fingers XXXXXXXX)

Have a Frugalicious Day...........................................................

It's pretty easy to do. It just takes a little time but in the end you get soooo much free stuff.

James said...

don't know if you have ever sent in for the rebate on the meters before or not,but from what i have heard if you use a Q to get it for free they will not give you a rebate.

How are you able to reuse the endless ECBs? This will be the first quarter that I'll earn any. Will they be on my card and it'll deduct? Does it get printed out at the beginning of the next quarter?

Hi Chris,
I'm calling it my endlesss EB because it is from my fall savings.You can find the EB at CVS online. Create your account linking your card. It is located under current coupons. I printed it once and used then, when I logged on again I noticed it was still there and it allowed me to print again. I tried using it and it worked so I've been using ever since. BOO it expires soon. Thanks for dropping by
