CVS trip over thanksgiving

CVS have a 3 day sale on Thurs - Sat. We popped out on Thanksgiving morning to get a few bits and since I had a few Extra Bucks for CVS and some corresponding coupons we popped in. I wanted to get the Bic Soleil razor but they were all sold out. Instead I got herbal essences shampoo and conditioner. They were $2.99 get $2 in extra bucks back.
I bought a shampoo and a conditioner and used a coupon for a free shampoo or conditioner on one and a $1 coupon on the other.
I also picked up a king size Snickers bar for 2 reasons. 1 because they are delicious and 2 because they were $1.59 receive $1.59 in extra bucks.
So for the shampoo and conditioner it was $2.99 + $2.99 +$1.59 = $7.57
I used the free coupon $2.99 + $1 herbal essences coupon which gave me $3.99 off the total bringing it down to $3.58.
I then used a $3 extra buck I had from before which made my total $0.63 including tax. I paid this with a small balance I had left on a gift card.

I spent no actual money and I left with $5.59 in extra bucks plus I already had an odd $1 in extra bucks from buying coke a few weeks ago.

We were going somewhere else that morning so when we were headed back we popped into a different CVS and looked for the earbuds that are on sale this week for $6.99 as my iPod ones broke and I have using a pair from the dollar store.
My luck was in as they had a really good stock. I purchased the earbuds at $6.99 using my $6.59 in extra bucks and an odd $0.43 I had in my purse.
I received $6.99 in extra bucks.

Then I went and picked up a Vaseline sheer infusion (which I have ben wanting to get for ages but thought it was too expensive considering I have a bunch of lotions already). They were $7.99 get back $7.99 in extra bucks.

I paid using my $6.99 in extra bucks and a $1 coupon I had from a newspaper insert making my total $0.00. Plus I got back $7.99 in extra bucks for my next purchase.
So, I picked up goods worth $22.55 and paid only $0.43 in cash for them and still have $7.99 in extra bucks to spend.

Stacys chips

You have to be quick off the mark to get some freebies. I signed up for a sample of Stacy's Pita chips from the All You website and moments later they were all gone.
I get the All You magazine each month. It has some really good recipes in it and stacks of good coupons. The website is fairly new I believe and it is pretty good. Helpful ideas for bargain hunting, links to coupons, recipes, household tips etc. It is worth taking a look if you haven't already.

CVS deal from last week

I forgot to post about this great deal I got at CVS last week.
They were doing a special on Dove and Degree products. If you spent $20 you got $10 back in Extra Bucks. I wanted to get some clinical strength deodorant so thought I would take advantage of this offer to get it for a really cheap price as they are normally around $10 each.

I got 2 Degree clinical strength deodorants. They were on sale for $6 each.

I also got a Dove shampoo and a conditioner. These were both $4.49 each.

This made my total $20.98 so I qualified for the deal.
I had completed a survey for CVS and received $10 in extra bucks to spend and I had $4 extra bucks from a previous listerine deal and an odd $1 extra buck so I used these to pay for the items along with a $2 and $1 coupon for each of the deodorants and $1.50 and $1 coupons for the hair products.
This made my actual total to pay only $0.48 which I paid for with a CVS gift card that I had earned through a survey site.

So all in cash paid and I get $10 in extra bucks to spend on a future deal.

Neosporing lip health

Neosporin has a new lip treatment out which I like because it has an SPF of 20 which is great here in Houston as it is really sunny most days.
Here is a link to sign up for a $3 coupon. I found a coupon somewhere else (I can't remember where now). At CVS they have a clip free coupon this month that automatically takes $2.50 off the product when you use your CVS card. Combining that with the $3 coupon means you get the product for FREE!
I got two and I have been using them everyday. It is a good product and great that you can get it for nothing.

Glade Sense & Spray

I am a member of BzzAgent and am taking part in a campaign for Glade Sense & Spray.
As anyone that reads my blogs will know I am a big fan of this product and more than willing to spread the word about it.

I love these for the bathroom. They work on a sensor and once it sprays it locks for half an hour but if you need to use it before then there is a button you can press for an extra spray.

I love the apple and cinnamon scented one but I have been sent the new Clear Springs scent to try and it is lovely.

Here are some facts about the Sense & Spray from Glade:

Glade® Sense & Spray™ automatic freshener is the first motion-activated air freshener created for home use. Makes us wonder where automatic, motion-sensor freshness has been all our lives. Keep these other fresh facts in mind when spreading the word:

Two Ways to Spray
Glade® Sense & Spray™ motion-activated freshener releases fragrance when:

  • The sensor detects motion (up to five feet away)
  • Someone presses the boost button on the front of the unit

Save the spray
After spraying, Glade® Sense & Spray™ motion-activated freshener automatically turns off its sensor for 30 minutes to help conserve your refill and prevent an overpowering scent.

Thirty days of spray
Depending on foot traffic in the room where you place your Glade® Sense & Spray™ motion-activated freshener, your refill should last about 30 days, with about 10 room-freshening sprays per day.

Getting started
The Glade® Sense & Spray™ motion-activated freshener starter kit has everything you need to, you know, get started. It has a suggested retail price of $8.99 and includes:

  • One smart spray unit
  • One refill canister (Clean Linen™, Clear Springs® or Apple Cinnamon scent)
  • 2 AA batteries

Keeping it going
Easy-to-replace refills are available for a suggested price of $3.49 in six fresh scents: Clean Linen™, Apple Cinnamon, Country Garden®, Powder Fresh®, new Hawaiian Breeze® and odor-fighting Clear Springs®. Pick up a starter kit and refills at all mass retailers, drug stores and supermarkets and learn more at

In the kit that bzzAgent sent me to try was a Clear Springs Sense & Spray starter kit and a booklet with some coupons for $4 off. I only have a few to give away but if anyone would like to have one I can send one to long as you let me know quickly before they are all gone.

I believe Walmart still have these on rollback which would make them only $1 after the coupon.
