One Great Deal Rolls Into Another!

Back in January, I stockpiled Pepsi and Lay's products for my daughter's birthday party. I paid next-to-nothing for these products, because I used my CVS Extra Care Bucks, and I earned ECBs on the purchase. I submitted the UPCs from those products for the Pepsi/Frito-Lay coupon rebate promo in early February. I found my rebate coupons waiting in my mailbox today!

There were FIVE $2 off any Pepsi product, ONE $2 off any 2 Frito-Lay snacks/dips, and ONE $3 off any 2 Frito-Lay snacks/dips coupons!!! This is absolutely perfect for this week.....

This week, CVS has 12-packs of Pepsi products 3 for $11. You also earn $3 ECBs when you buy 3. I only have $2 ECBs going into the deal, but here's my plan:

Buy 3 Pepsi 12-Packs for $11
- $6 Pepsi coupons ($2 x 3)
- $2 ECBs
Total OOP Cost: $3
ECBs Earned: $3

So I'm paying $1 each out-of-pocket! Not bad! I think I'm going to hold out for a few more days just in case CVS proves extra-generous with an email coupon! If they do, then I will have an even lower OOP cost.
