CVS Deals week of Feb 17 - Feb 23

I am pretty new to the CVS deals and have learned sooooo much from reading Crystal's blog at Money Saving Mom. Thanks to her and her wonderful readers I was able to get a ton of stuff this week. CVS has Extra Care Bucks that they will give you to spend like cash in the store when you purchase certain items. I already had $16 of them from a previous deal and I needed to use them this week since they were scheduled to expire Saturday.

So here's everything I got this week --
2 packs of Huggies Newborn size diapers (40 per package) -- $17.98
6 packs of Huggies size 1 diapers (44 per package) -- $53.94
1 pack of Huggies size 2 diapers (48 per package) -- $8.99
2 packages Kotex Maxi Pads (16 per package) -- $5.00
4 bottles CVS brand Low Dose Chewable Aspirin -- $7.16
5 bottles Sambucol Elderberry Extract -- $64.95
1 package of Johnson's Q-Tips (500 count) -- $2.99
1 Valentine's Day bib for the new baby to wear next year -- $0.99

I didn't get everything in just one transaction or even on just one day. The first transaction I did was the "buy $30 and get $15 ECB". That was good on selected Kimberly Clark products and I got Huggies Diapers with that deal. From there the ECBs snowballed over each time and I was able to use manufacturer's coupons and ECBs to pay for much of my purchases. Including sales tax I did spend $23.70 out of pocket. I also will send for the Sambucol rebate and get $12.99 back from that. Additionally I have $26.79 in extra care bucks to use on future purchases.

I was most happy about the deal I got on diapers. I usually buy Target brand diapers but I couldn't pass up this deal to get some Huggies diapers for the new baby. I'll just store them until I need them later this spring and summer. Hopefully I can learn to keep the deals going at CVS and keep rolling those ECBs over each week.

Great job! I started CVSing in November, and have not paid "real" money for diapers since! They often have either Pamper or Huggies on an ECB deal,and I really like the CVS brand diapers too. I used to buy the Target diapers too but now I just pay for all my diapers & wipes with ECBs! Hope you can do the same!
