My Hot Deal This Week: Using Coupon Overage to Buy Something I Need

Final Cost: $1.99 + filler

This week the Gillette and Old Spice bodywashes are FREE after ECBS. In fact, better than that, if you had the coupon from P&G 5/2/10 you actually ended up making $4 when you bought 2. (It’s outlined here) Well, although Hubs doesn’t really need any more body wash, we did need sunscreen lotion and as Banana Boat is supposed to be the least toxic of all, I wanted it but it’s also pretty pricey. Well, not this week at CVS. It was only $6.99 and I worked out a cunning plan on how I’d get it for even cheaper!

Transaction 1 (These could be done together but I wanted no ECBS at the end!)
2 x Gilette Bodywash $8
Use $4/2 Gilette from P&G 5/2/10
Receive $8 in ECBS
Final Price: Free plus $4 overage

Transaction 2
Banana Boat $6.99
Filler $1.01
Use $1 off Banana Boat from SS 5/23/10
Pay for with $8 in ECBS gained from Transaction 1
Final Price: $1.99 + cost of filler

I thought I’d break down the scenario so that you can see in detail the way I shop! Hope it was helpful!
