Night-Time Pull-Ups ARE Part of the CVS Baby Deal!

I didn't think much about the CVS baby deal for this week. (Deal -- Spend $25 in qualifying baby items, and get $5 ECBs.) The fine print said that the GoodNites pull-ups that we use weren't part of the deal. I had bought some GoodNites earlier in the week, and I noticed that they were listed at the bottom of the receipt under the baby deals section. The GoodNites were on sale and may get me the ECB deal, so I decided to stock up. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the night-time pull-ups were part of the ECB deal!

Here's how I did the deal:

First Transaction:
2 packs pull-ups 8.99 each
3 boxes of $1 candy (part of the ECB candy deal)
-$4/20 coupon
-$3/2 pull-ups coupon
$13.98 plus tax OOP
Earned $5 ECBs (included my earlier purchase)

Second Transaction:
1 pack pull-ups 8.99
3 boxes of $1 candy
-$2/10 coupon
-$2 pull-ups coupon
-$5 ECBs from first transaction
$2.99 OOP
Earned $5 ECBs (from candy deal)

Even if you don't count the candy (which will be wrapped with extended family's Christmas gifts this year), I got the diapers for $5.66 per pack and have $5 ECBs for next week. That's even less than they would have been at Wal-Mart with my coupons!
