CVS Success!

We finally found a CVS that sells Arnicare! My daughter and I just drove to Wheeling, WV (about 20-ish miles) to go to their CVS. It's my absolute favorite CVS in the area. It's HUGE compared to ours! We got the last two Arnicares, so we'll have to wait until later this month to take advantage of that deal again.

Here's what we got...

Transaction #1:
4 Suave body washes $2.00 each
3 Pringles $0.88 each
1 Arnicare gel $9.49 each

-$4 off any $20 purchase from previous receipt
-$0.30 x 3 for Pringles from Sunday's newspaper insert
- $0.50 x 2 for Suave from ???
-$2.00 for Arnicare (here)
-$9.99 ECBs from earlier this week

Total: $2.53 (includes tax) OOP
Earned $10 ECBs ($8 Arnicare/$2 Suave)

Transaction #2:
ThermaCare heat wraps $5.49
Arnicare gel $9.49
Triaminic (the purpose for the trip!) $6.99

-$4 off any $20 purchase from previous receipt
-$0.55 for ThermaCare
-$2 for Arnicare (here)
-$2 for Triaminic (here)
-$10 ECBs from Transaction #1

Total: $3.78 (includes tax) OOP
Earned $8 ECBs (Arnicare)

I wanted to do a third transaction with Arnicare and Cascade, but they were out of both.... I guess I don't have to do dishes this week then, right?
