I did my first three "deals" today @ CVS. I did a trial run last week just to make sure my card was still good. I've had it a long time but had never used it before.
I don't know why I'm nervous to the point of being scared when I walk up with coupons and my little card and my ECBs!
Tonight I sat down and reviewed what I did and saw several areas of opportunity. I need to really make sure I have a back up plan in case my intended purchases aren't available. That's where I really messed up today, thinking of the deal on the fly.
I did well enough though. $36 OOP, $71 of merch. and an $8 ECB left over. Oh, I also found that the store nearest my home does stocking and mini-resets on Wed. nights.
I travel all over WV, OH, and parts of KY so I get to visit lots of stores!
Thanks for all your help. I'm off to find a post that explains what it means to "scan your card" @ CVS!
