CVS Success

October 9th, 2007 at 06:47 pm

I haven't posted in a week!

To start with, I've added $6 to my Adobe fund. It was income I earned doing a miscellaneous job for someone.

I recently joined www.hotcouponworld.com and I'm in heaven. It's a GREAT site. I've become addicted to CVS. I got a great deal last week and this week I'm getting even more great deals!


I had two coupons for Covergirl. They were buy one foundation get a powder, bronzer or concealer free. I found Covergirl foundation with a free powder attached to it! So, I got 2 foundations, 2 powders, a bronzer & a blush.

Here is the breakdown:
Covergirl Foundation $5.49
Covergirl Foundation $6.99
Covergirl Bronzer $6.99
Covergirl Blush $6.99
Total $26.46

    Oh, here's another HCW junkie LOL The site is wonderful, isn't it? It taught me so much about the couponing and I saved so much money in last couple of years. I just wish I knew how to coupon much earlier!

    There's no CVS around here Frown So, I'm so jealous of you!

    Wow, that's impressive. I don't understand the CVS thing yet and really want to learn about it. Nice numbers! Smile

  3. eisor Says:

    Ok. Things didn't exactly go according to plan. The CVS was out of the Crest Pro-Health which I expected.

    So, I didn't get to use the $4/$20 purchase and I spent a little bit more out of pocket than I would have liked. BUT, I did get back more ECBs than I spent out of pocket. So, all is well.
