    CVS Shopping Trip- Honest Tea, Crest 3D, Clean & Clear, Godiva, Gardetto's

    Since I started couponing, my friends always ask me how I complete my shopping trips.

    Here's an example from CVS tonight.

    In this shopping trip, I spent $3.14 out of pocket in two transactions, used $8 reward bucks from a previous week and $5 from the first transaction, and was left with $5 reward bucks for a future transaction.

    Transaction #1

    • 4 Bottles of Honest Tea (12/$10) + .05 bottle deposit each in California
    • Gardettos Original 5.5oz (2/$3)
      • Used .50 cents off coupon found here (Expires 5/1/11)
    • Godiva Easter Truffles 4.2oz (50% Easter Clearance $2.49)
      • Used .50 cents coupon found in SS 4/17/11
      • Used $1.00 Godiva Gem CVS store coupon from the coupon machine
    • Clean & Clear Morning Burst Shower/Body Wash ($5.99)
      • I had previously bought 2 bottles of these from a transaction earlier this week using the B1G1F found in SS 3/27/11 w/max value $5.99. 
      • Since I didn't have a second one of these coupons, I used a $2.00 off coupon found here (must sign up for an account).
    Used $5.00 CVS bucks from a previous week.
    Subtotal: .54 cents
    CA 10% tax: .38
    Total: .92 cents 
    Got $5.00 from the Clean & Clear deal (Spend $15 (before coupons), get CVS RB $5)

    Note: Since I used two B1G1F worth $1.99 each and my tea was $3.34 in total before the coupons made them free, I had .64 cents on overage to use towards my purchase.

    Transaction #2

    • Oral B 3D White Toothbrush ($3.50)
      • Used $.75 cents coupon from P&G mailer received 04/2011
    • Crest 3D White Rinse 946ml ($8.29)
      • Used $2.00 off P&G coupon from P&G 4/2011
    Used $5 RB from previous transaction and $3 RB from previous week.
    Subtotal: $1.04
    CA 10% tax: $1.18
    Total: $2.22
    Received $5 RB back for a future purchase.

    Has anyone used this rinse or toothbrush? I am curious if it's any good given its hefty price!

    StarKist's Seafood Friday Coupons

    Every Friday, you can print StarKist coupons as part of Seafood Friday on their Facebook page. I've seen the same coupon (.50 cents towards any StarKist pouch) for the past few weeks. Pouches normally run around .89 to .99 cents before the coupon at Walmart or Target and cheaper when there's a sale! To maximize the coupon value, make sure to grab the smallest pouch size available. Great healthy snack for those hungry afternoons!

    Apparently, by printing the coupon, I entered myself into the weekly sweepstakes for a free pouch because I got this email today!
