CVS Deals - Week of 8/24

Let's do our CVSing on less than $5 this week!

I haven't been to CVS yet this week, but here's my plan. I'm going to make two trips (or hit two stores in one outing) and do two transactions at each location. I should spend about $4.44 OOP (plus tax) and end up with $14.49 in ECBs. Fortunately, I still have some CVS gift card money left (from transferring a prescription). So I'll have $0 OOP!!

Transaction #1:
2 CVS hand sanitizers $3.00 (I'm not 100% sure on this price.)
2 Malt-o-Meal cereals $2.00
1 Kotex pantiliners $1.49
1 Playtex tampons $4.99

$2 CVS brand skincare coupon (here)
2 $1 Malt-o-Meal coupons (here) (here) (here) (here)
1 $1 Kotex coupon (from recent newspaper insert) (here)
1 $1 Playtex coupon (from recent newspaper insert)
$2 off any $10 purchase coupon (here)

I have no ECBs right now... used them all last week!
Total OOP $3.48

Earn $5.49 ECBs (hand sanitizer, liners, tampons)

Transaction #2:
1 Malt-o-Meal cereal $1.00
1 Stayfree pads $4.50
1 Carefree liners $4.50
1 Gatorade $1.00

I'd like to figure out a way to do the Garnier deal and get some of their anti-frizz serum. It's the only thing I've found that can somewhat tame my frizzies! If I figure out a way to work that in without paying the full $15 OOP, I'll let you know! If anyone has suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

How is everyone using the Malt O Meal coupons. Mine all print for a larger size package. My CVS 1.00 MOM is only a 6 oz box....

Funny... I didn't even notice the size printed on the ocupons. I used them this morning, and the cashier didn't even blink. I didn't check the size before I went, but you're right. The boxes are only 6.8 ounces. I'm sure that this one will vary by who your cashier happens to be on any given day. My cashier loved the coupons because they made the box free. In fact, she asked me where she could go to print them. Let me know if you're able to use them or not. And thanks for pointing out the difference!
