CVS - Round 2! (3, 4, or more)

There were a couple of good deals that I missed earlier in the week. Luckily because I work at CVS I'm able to pick up deals last minute, no problem. Cheap Revlon powder was exciting, $.64! Also was happy to see the John Fredia deal. I thought about skipping it because I have enough for a year. As it was only $.50/item I thought it would be worth getting and donating. Also went through my P&G mailers to see if I had any coupons I was likely to use. Two $1/1 Oral-B coupons! Free toothbrushes!

Transaction 1:
Revlon Powder $10.49
Total Before Coupons: $10.49

$6.00 Revlon Color (CVS Coupon Machine)
Total After Coupons: $4.49 + $.15 tax

$4 EB Revlon wyb $10

Net: $.64 cost

Transaction 2:
Honest Tea $1.00
John Fredia Conditioner $4.99
John Fredia Shampoo $4.99
Total Before Coupons: $10.98

$.50/1 Honest Tea (tear pad)
2 $3/1 John Fredia Root Awakening
Total After Coupons: $4.48 +.05 tax (used $4 EB from previous transaction)

$3 EB John Fredia (also includes Curel)

Net: $1.53 cost

Transaction 3:
2 Oral-B Toothbrushes @ 1.99 each = $3.98
Total Before Coupons: $3.98

2 $1/1 Oral-B Manual Toothbrush (P&G mailer)
Total After Coupons: $1.98 (used $.99 EB)

$2 EB Oral-B (two offers)
Net: $.02 profit

Grand Net: $.64 cost + $1.53 cost + $.02 profit = $2.15 cost!

I wanted to finish up the buy $30 get a $10 gas card. I knew buying more nuts would have me a few cents shy, but I wasn't sure by how much. I had hoped we would get more of the south beach mix on truck, but no such luck. So I grabbed the individualized serving multi-pac. Not as much bang for you buck, but it will work. I also wanted to finish off the 5/$5 get $2 EB drink deal. (Which is going on until 7/2.)

3 Honest Tea @ $1.00 each = $3.00
Planters South Beach individual $7.49
Planters South Beach individual FREE (BOGO Free)
Total Before Coupons: $10.49

3 $.50/1 Honest Tea
Total After Coupons: $8.99 (used $1 EB)

$10 gas card (actually rung as a separate transaction, but was my only item.)
$2 EB wyb 5 selected drinks
Net: $7.99 cost

So $29.95 does the trick for the buy $30 get $10 gas card. (Maybe slightly less?) I'm happy that my last $7.49 purchase could get me $10 of gas. I'll be taking that $10 from my gas budget putting it back into my grocery budget. So over all that means $30 worth of nuts for $20! That's a lot of snacking!
