    What would that one change be to make this transaction perfect? Paying NOTHING out-of-pocket would be nice!

    Here's something I concocted today in order to grab some freebies this week at CVS. Please note that the $5 off $20 coupon is no longer available but if you still have some with you, most CVS's will allow you to use their store coupons up to 2 weeks past their expiration dates. I only know of 1 in my area that won't take expired CVS coupons, so check your store policy before hitting the road!

    The Deal:

    Buy (2) Ester-C 5600 mg caplets ($8.59 each/BOGO this week)
    - Use (2) $4 coupons from the 1/24 RP
    = 30¢ each (WOW!)

    Buy (1) Johnson & Johnson Bonus Pack @ $4.49
    - Use $2/1 coupon from
    - Earn $2 in ECB's
    = 49¢ (after ECB's)

    Buy (1) Honey Nut Cheerios Value Pack @ $7.99
    - Use $1 printable from here (this one reset for me, were you able to print it again?!)
    - Earn $4 in ECB's
    = $2.99 (after ECB's)

    - Use $5 off $20 coupon (no longer available - hope you printed it before today!)
    = Total OOP is $5.07
    = Earn $6 in ECB's
    = FREE + a small money maker!

    This is AWESOME! FREE Johnson & Johnson, FREECheerios, and FREE calcium supplements. No where else but CVS, I tell you! If you haven't jumped on the CVS bandwagon - don't wait!

    Now I'm heading out to try this one myself - I'll let you know how it works out for me!
