CVS Deal Shopping


$7.75 OOP
Cinnamon Toast Crunch $1.99
Lucky Charms $1.99
10 Bumble Bee Tuna $0.49/each
CVS Pain Relief 500 ct. $9.99
M&M's $3.99 (This was a filler, but....see below)

Coupons Used:
2  $1/5 IP Tuna
2  $1.00 IP GM Cereal
$2 off $10  CVS e-Mail Health Care Coupon
$10 (Expired) EB 
I am very happy my store accepts expired (within the same) week EB's! Whoosh!

Here is why I had the M&M filler:  I was expecting to pay around $2 for all of this because I received a $5 off $15 coupon from the in-store scanner.  I should have given the cashier this coupon first because once she took off my EB it wouldn't work. Oy!  Live and Learn!!

EDIT:YMMV Family Game Night - Cheap and Fun!!!

 Here is what I purchased at WalMart today:

2 Monopoly Deal Card Games $5.24 each
Minus $5 off Coupon = $0.24 each
2 Pictureka Card Games $5.24 each
Minus $4 off Coupon = $1.24 each

Total $2.96 + $1.47 Tax = $4.43 OOP!!
These would also make great little gifts to keep on hand for those out-of-the-blue birthday parties. 

EDIT: YMMV!!  I went with my mom to do this exact same deal.  The cashier would not accept the coupons even after scanning two of them due to the "picture" on it stating that it was intended for the board game not the card game.  How would she know what the manufacturer "intended" is my question.   Let me know how you made out! 

(YMMV mean Your Mileage May Vary - you may or may not be able to do the same deal)
