emergencia!

cvs has sucked out loud so much the last few weeks, all those extrabucks i worked so hard to earn (after i lost the $14 during the burlesque) are now already about to expire. and of course, this is the worst cvs week ever. crap!! i’ve got $10 ECBs to unload, and literally nothing to buy! i think that the crave-nx deal is over too. (anybody know if it runs all month?!).

here’s my master plot:

crest & oral b multi-packs starting @ $4.99 with 3 extrabucks back… i have a couple of crest and oral b $1/1 coupons- but will they work for multi-packs?

blistex DCT has a $.50 clipfree coupon, and i have a $1/2 coupon… not sure how much that will cost- but i like lip stuff…

kotex pads & liners also have a $1/1 clipfree coupon this week, and i have a $1.50/2 coupon that could work. i think the liners are $3.49, so i could get 2 boxes for $1.25 each. meh!

dawn dish detergent @ $.96 each. i have a couple of coupons from $.20/1 to $1/1 depending on the varieties available. could be good?

wow. that’s really not very much, and there is a great deal of uncertainty. maybe i’ll just fuck it and blow it all on snack cakes and trashy magazines. this is garbage cvs! garbage!

I felt horrible on my CVS advisor panel this week. I had nothing good to say about the ad! And I usually adore them so!

The Oust is a good deal that you can roll bucks on and make a couple too if you have the BOGO coupon. iheartcvs.com says the Crave-nx is all month on shelf tags… and I STILL forgot to get mine. 😦

Of course, you can’t go wrong with snack cakes and trashy magazines!

don’t feel bad- they need to know when they’re sucking out! if cvs is ever going to win my heart back, they need a serious attitude adjustment.

sadly, i’m allergic to a lot of strong smells, so the oust deal doesn’t work for me. hopefully, the crave-nx is still there! i can use it to keep me from eating the snack cakes!

I don’t like the Oust either, it’s stinky! But you make like two bucks on each deal (even after tax) and it’s a good way to roll your bucks. I actually have 6 waiting to be donated, I made money on all of them. πŸ™‚

i guess my question is who do you donate it to? who really needs stinky oust?

hahahaha! I just stick it in with the other things our church kids collect for the shelters… I figure someone out there must like the stuff!

i don’t comment often – but i totally agree about the crap this week! i might be able to scrounge up enough tostito’s/lay’s coupons to work something there – maybe in conjunction with this new coupon? (other sites have said it works.)

thanks for the link- i’ve not stumbled across that coupon yet! my problem is that i’m trying to lay off the snacking, so filling my house full of pita chips and giant chunkys is a terrible idea. it’s like cvs knows i’ve been talking smack- and now they want me to be fat and have expired extrabucks. brutal!

ECBs for free TP.

they would most certainly be better spent than on tabloids and ho hos!

Only thing I want is Planters dry roasted peanuts. If I find them cheaper somewhere else then screw you, CVS!

i like your attitude! cvs needs to clean up their act in a serious way (and lay off the two-packs!).

jen – wags has way better deal on planters this week. it doesn’t show it in the ad, but the dry roasted are included in the $1.99 sale, and there are $1/2 coupons from the 12/13 smartsource, and $1off planters nuts from the wags diabetes and you booklet (found at pharmacy) making for .50 nuts.

flaunting your cheap nuts at those of us who are walgreens deprived- how cruel! πŸ™‚

Walgreens… they don’t have a store within 30 miles of my house! I live in Harrisburg, PA. Rite Aid is based in Camp Hill, PA which is right across the river. I honestly think that’s why there isn’t a close Walgreens. I was at Wal-Mart today (cuz Target wouldn’t do my price match on All detergent… my first price match ever!) and they had Planters for $2.78 each (and I had a $1/2 coupon). I figure the extra .56 cents was worth not going to CVS and supporting their suckage this week!

they actually finally built a walgreens in my town, but it isn’t open yet! i don’t even know if it ever will (it’s been standing vacant for MONTHS). it’s ok though, i hear their register rewards program is really unreliable. i like to pretend that we’re not missing anything.
