CVSing for 11/16 - 11/22

UPDATE: You can read about my CVS results here.

I'm on a roll! I'm early again with my CVS deals! Well, part of the reason that I'm early again is that I need to go on Sunday in order to take advantage of my $5/$30 email coupon that expires on 11/16. It's a decent week at CVS, and I'll have a chance to unload the $11.99 ECB or $9.00 ECB that I got last week. I despise having to hang onto high value ECBs like those.

We SO don't need more Glade stuff around the house, but it smells good and it's a nice little treat - especially when it's better than free. This week, get $5 ECB when you buy $10 of the following Glade products:
  • Glass scents Decorative Air Freshener: $2.50
    B1G1 coupon expires 11/23
  • Jar candles: $2.50
    $1.50/2 coupon expires 12/6
  • Plugins Scented Oil Warmer: $2.99
    FREE warmer pink peelie expires 6/30/10
  • Plugins Scented Oil twin refill packs: $3.99
    Buy 1 Refill, get a warmer free coupon expires 12/14, 1/31
    $1/1 green peelie expires 6/30/10
There are ALWAYS coupons out for Glade, so you should have no problem getting something for close to free. Or if you were one of the lucky ones like me to run into that awesome FREE warmer pink peelie, you'll actually end up with a small moneymaker. I got my peelies from a Walgreens Glade deal that I did a while back, but keep an eye out while you're at CVS - they could crop up there as well!

I'm only going to do one transaction this week, and here it is:

Buy 1 L'Oreal Age Perfect Pro Calcium: $15.99
Buy 1 Xantrex-3 Insta-shot 2pk: $4.99
Buy 2 Glade plugins warmer ($2.99 each): $5.98
Buy 2 Glade glass scents ($2.50 each): $5.00
Subtotal: $31.96
Use $5/$30 email coupon (-$5.00)
Use $1/1 L'Oreal moisturizer coupon (-$1.00)
Use 2 FREE Glade Plugins warmer peelie coupon (-$5.98)
Use B1G1 Glade glass scents coupon (-$2.50)
Grand Total: $17.48
(use $1.29 + $11.99 + $4.00 ECB)
$0.20 + tax
ECBs returned:
$15.99 (L'Oreal) + $4.99 (Xantrex) + $5 (Glade) = $25.98

I will make a profit of $8.50, and walk away with nearly $32 worth of stuff! I love being paid to make my house smell clean. And since all the outlets are at doggie-level, they inevitably become doggy perfume/cologne too. I can't remember when I last gave them a bath, but they smell SO good...and that's just not natural, as much as Chloe wills it to be.

I'm going first thing on Sunday morning because I really don't want to risk them running out of the L'Oreal, and I will be sure to share how I do!

Thanks for your great website! I'm wondering, where do you see a CVS ad this early?
