Tips When Shopping


I love using coupons and looking for great sales but over time I’ve learned that I have to pay very close attention when the items are being rung up. The other day I got some super deals at CVS. I spent $30.00 worth of Proctor and Gamble products and received $10 Extra Bucks back. Another deal was to spend $15.00 worth of CVS items and receive $5.00 Extra Buck and I received $1.00 Extra Buck with the purchase of Maxwell House coffee. When I do the deals where you have to spend a certain amount, I do my home work before going to the store. I know exactly what I have to purchase for my total to reach the amount needed.
While the purchases are being rung up, I pay close attention to double check. When I made this purchase the other day, I got my receipt but it was missing the $5.00 Extra Buck from the CVS bran items. I knew I had met the correct amount so the cashier called over a manager and she double checked it and agreed but didn’t know why the coupon didn’t ring up so she printed one out.
The total amount spent on my items was over $90.00 but because of the coupons and gift cards, I only paid $18.22 out of pocket! Plus I got the $16.00 worth of Extra Bucks for my next shopping trip.
So my recommendation to anyone that wants to save money, is to pay very close attention when your purchases are being rung up. Sometime the customers behind you may get a big upset, but money is money and I don’t like to lose any!
I hope this has helped you for when you go shopping the next time!

    I always enjoy shopping at CVS. Where I live there is not a close one by. Instead it is Walgreen Rite Aid.

  2. Good shopping tips.

    We also have those but I find if I stick with one I save more. I’m not as likely to pick up things I don’t need by going into more than one store. Thanks for stopping by Sandy.

    Although we don’t have the stores you mention where I am the principles are the same and value for money is the game!

    You’re always doing great on your couponing Andria! I like CVS because I can stack a store and manufacturer coupon plus use and get Extra bucks. I love using coupons and try to save as much as I can when shopping. Thanks for stopping by!
