CVS: Spent $4.81 and Got $4 Back in CVS Money!

Spent: $4.81
Saved: $8.84
Total Value: $13.65
Percent Saved: 65%

Extrabucks Earned: $4.00

So, I had a raincheck on the mouthwash, the ThermaCare was free after ExtraBucks, and I had a $3 birthday CVS coupon to spend. I did this in two transactions. I was going to do three transactions, but I did it wrong. I planned to do each item separately starting with the ThermaCare, but my transaction on the first bottle of mouthwash came up negative, so I ended up doing both bottles of mouthwash at once. I should have done the mouthwash and then the ThermaCare.

Publix Promise=Free Sausage

Spent: $6.54
Saved: $3.84
Total Value: $10.38
Percent Saved: 37%

I didn't plan on posting this trip, but it ended up being a good one. The Carolina Pride sausage was on sale for $3.00, but it rang up for $3.49. Because of that, Publix's Guarantee indicates that product for free. I didn't have to mention the policy to the cashier. He just did it. I had a $0.50 coupon for it on top of that, so that was overage for other things.
