I am posting a scenario that I will try to work today. I was there already today but forgot a coupon so I will need to go back. I will try to buy an Alavert 1st to see if it will give me 4 ecbs back. They are $6.99 and I have a $4 off coupon, the rumor is that this should print 4 ecb's. If this works I will work the deal below.
Here is the scenario:
I was told that CRT coupons can be added with a manuf. coupon and that I should be able to use the $10 off $50 CRT with a printable $4 off $20.
1 Pepcid AC Chewable 10.69
1 Aquafresh Advanced toothpaste $3.49
1 Mennen 24/7 speedstick $3.99
2-$3.99 CVS Pain relievers
1 gallon of milk (needed)
-----total before any coupons $51.24
$10 off $50 purchase CRT
$4 off $20 purchase printable from i heart cvs
$2 off pepcid CVS printable from i heart cvs
$2 manuf. pepcid coupon
3-$4 Alavert coupons
$2 Aquafresh CRT
$2 Aquafresh manuf. coupon (this gives me .50 overage)
----Total oop $17.24
I will pay with a $15 ecb and a $2 ecb and the tax with cash.
ECB's I will earn back, hold on to your hats $28.97 That will give me about $45 or a little more for future purchases.
I am a stay at home mom who is fed up with spending a large portion of income on grocery bills. It is my job, according to God, to be a good help mate for my husband. I am trying to live up to my job description. I am starting a journey into the grocery coupon world and invite you to come with me. I have never used coupons for grocery shopping and as of January 1st 2008 I am diving in. I will be using http://www.thegrocerygame/ , http://www.moneysavingmom.com and the http://www.couponmom.com/ website to guide me on how to save money. I am going to treat this adventure as a part time job and put in the hours necessary to make it work. I am excited and nervous to get started.
